Ok, I've been looking at the beginners guide by tally. I modded some of the attributes on the Luger and the Webley. I used WinRAR and chose zip and changed the extension to .iwd. So I named it zzz_pistols.iwd and I put it in the main folder. When I start the server Call Of Duty 2 doesn't detect the mod and nothing happens. Does anyone know why this happens?

prolly because the file hasnt changed to an iwd file.
easiest way to create a valid iwd file is to get an existing one. So, go to your COD2 'main' folder and copy any of them. paste it to your Windows desktop.
Open the file up with whatever program you use (i always use winrar) by double clicking it. delete all but one of the folders in it. Now, insert your mod files and folders. Then delete the final remaining original folder that you didnt delete at first. Finally, rename the iwd file to zzz_pistols by right clicking the iwd file and then left clicking 'rename'.
then place the iwd file in your main folder, and it should work.
I found out why. It's because when I compressed it, it would add another folder, so it would be like /weapons/weapons/mp or something like that. So I just used winRAR to go in and delete the extra folder. Thanks for the help anyways.
