i don't understand anything on the CALL OF DUTY main menu, i can't even change the video stuff cause i can't see :( can anyone help me on this one ? thanks.
Can you post a picture (screenshot) of what you see, or what you dont see in your case.
Also please post the details of your pc specs too.
At first off, it sounds like some of the files havent been copied over from the cd's that you installed with, this is getting to be a common problem with the Call of Duty game as some peoples computers either are dusty and the dust sometimes gets on the lens and makes the reading of the cd's hard. But other times it turns out that the cd's are dirty or smudged and need to be cleaned.
On some occasions it has turned out that the driver for the graphics card are at fault.
But when you post the screen shot of what your seeing we will be able to help you further.
ok, this is the error as you can see.. i can't see a damn thing in the main menu and it happens that on the game also (i can only identify 'new game' on there) it is an AMD Athlon 2.0 256ram blah blah video card S3ProSavageDDR 64mb maybe it is the video card, i don't know
Looks like you've downloaded a mod.
Go to the Call of Duty Main folder:
Default location: My Computer - Local Drive (C) - Program Files - Call of Duty - Main
and look for any pak3 files that are not in this list:
V1.4 localized_english_pak0.pk3, 167,895,169 bytes localized_english_pak1.pk3, 126,070,475 bytes localized_english_pak2.pk3, 17,592 bytes localized_english_pak3.pk3, 8,501 bytes pak0.pk3, 164,229,067 bytes pak1.pk3, 165,964,103 bytes pak2.pk3, 165,555,454 bytes pak3.pk3, 167,888,227 bytes pak4.pk3, 167,607,183 bytes pak5.pk3, 80,540,215 bytes pak6.pk3, 613,326 bytes pak8.pk3, 1,091,088 bytes pak9.pk3, 18,971,056 bytes
if you have any that look like zzz or ___ or not int he list above (please only look at the pak3 files) in them I would recommend moving them to My Documents and trying the game again. There should only be around 25 files in there for v1.5 of Call of Duty for the basic game and no mods. If you can do a screen shot of the Main folder in the Details view we can help further.
hmmm.. i guess, some are missing, should i donwload any patch ? damn, this game has problems lol
Have you downloaded any patch or have you only just installed the game? pak1.pk3 needs to be copied from the game cd's to that folder as its not the correct file size. not sure about pak0.pak as that one keeps changing size lol. But i would recommend reinstalling the game, but if you do a reinstallation make sure you uninstall the game and delete the folder. Try installing from a different cd / dvd drive. [color=black]Edit:[/color] Looks like you have just installed the game and not applied any patches. Just recopy the files: Pak1 and pak0 from the cd's: My Computer - CD Drive - Setup - Data - Main Look for only pak1 and pak0 and copy them to the folder for Call of Duty, your problem should be solved.
i just installed the game.. i'll tri to reinstall it now again.. but i'm not quite sure if it's going to work :/
oh, abnother thing, i just checked right now.. in the cd the file has the same size..
Pak1 is on CD 2 and should read as 158MB or 162,075 KB
the file on the pak1.pk3 on the cd has 162mb and in the folder has 17mb (!!!) and when i tried to copy to the folder game popped up this message: 'Não é Possível copiar pak1. função inválida do MS-DOS.' something like: 'its not possible to copy pak1. invalid MS-DOS function' don't know what's that but.. there's no patch or any file i can download to fix this ?
