If United Offensive is installed it now checks to see if you have any Official map packs. If it finds any then an option is enabled in the file menu that allows you to tell cod cleaner wether to remove or keep the UO packs. Checked means it will leave the map packs were they are, unchecked will remove them when you hit the clean button, when you first launch the App the default is to keep the file(s) and not move them when cleaning. - Windows Explorer support. Clicking on the Status bar after a move (Clean) has been completed will open windows explorer in the folder where the files have been moved to. (only works after a move has been completed). Once you select another game type then the option is removed and the click will not work. - Tidied up the Main form tooltips.

INSTALLATION ============ Run CodClean.exe USAGE ===== Cod Cleaner will automatically know if you have CoD, UO or CoD2 installed and will display this in the Game Found frame. 3 checkboxes are supplied, click the check box for the game you want to remove the alien files from. A list of Alien files will be listed. Just hit the clean button and it will move them to a backup folder. Once complete the status bar will tell you where the files were placed. THE APPLICATION DOES NOT DELETE THE FILES BUT MOVES THEM. If when you select the check boxes for game type the list remians empty then you do not have any alien files in your Main or UO folders. Why would you use this? There are a couple of reasons why I built this. 1) There are plenty of utilities out there that claim to clean your folder but corrupted your Call of Duty installs.The main reason this was a problem is that it deleted the files from your Call of Duty folders. Cod Cleaner is different, it does not delete the alien files but moves the files to your Call of Duty\Main\<moved files> or Call of Duty\UO\<moved files> folders. This means you are able to restore the files manually at any time. 2) Users were getting "Unpure client. Invalid PK3 / IWD" messages when connecting to servers and did not know how to clean their folders to allow them to connect to the game servers. 3) Users were getting funny messages, like Uninitialised variables or dead entity messages. Again this could be due to other mods and maps that are not stock. 4) Users didnt know how to restore their MAIN and UO folders to stock. HOW DOES IT WORK ================ CoD Cleaner once loaded finds the install path for Call of Duty. It then checks the files in your Main and UO folders. It will know what is Alien and what is classed as a stock pk3 / iwd due to search parameters and identifies what is stock and what is not. It will then list the files for you. Clicking the "Clean" button will move the files to a backup folder just in case you decide you still want them. Once the clean has finished keep an eye on the status bar at the bottom it will tell you where the files have been moved to. The backup folders that Cod Cleaner creates are as follows: The backup folder naming conventions are created usign the system date and time. For example, if I run the clean on the 5th May 2007 at 11:30:25 then the folder would be created as: 050507113025 These folders are created in your Call of Duty\Main, Call of Duty\UO or Call of Duty 2\Main folders depending on the game you are cleaning. This allows you to move the files back manually if you have a problem. (Cod Cleaner does not have the functionality yet to do this for you). Thats it, very simple and easy to use.
