    I would recommend vsync for this game, even though the game gets 60fps, it still likes to jump around alot above that.

    by higuita on Saturday January 31st 2015, 11:27
    The game is unstable, even on windows, when it encounters various problems...

    Try checking the microphone, mods files, map, firewall, etc

    try to start a multiplayer game locally, then connect to a server with stock map and no mods then with mods, etc, etc
    cod4 on a Amd A10 with mesa 10.4.2
    by higuita on Saturday January 31st 2015, 11:18
    I tried cod4 on wine 1.7.32 and 1.7.35 and the game start fine but there are missing textures, no matter what options or resolution i try. Installing native directx9 also didin't solve the problem. (i open a bug in bugs.winehq.org/show_bug.cgi?id=37989 for this)

    Downgraded to thestable version 1.6.2 and the game errors about out of video memory at launch

    Using winetricks, i setup the videomemory to 2048M and everything is now working fine. I can enable all options and the performance is still good at full HD (1920x1080)

    Patch 1.6 cannot patch
    by Patryk on Saturday August 18th 2012, 14:15
    I installed the game without a problem under Wine 1.5.10 on Ubuntu 12.04 64 bit but when I try to patch to 1.6 it says :
    "The program CoD4MW-1.6-PatchSetup.exe has encountered a serious problem and needs to close. ...."

    This is the backtrace pastebin.com/WEh3j6vw

    I also have problem launching the originally installed exe - I get this error
    "DirectX encountered an unrecoverable error ...."

    But I do have d3dx9 and directx9 installed with winetricks.
    Cannot Locate DVD-ROM
    by Joshua on Sunday March 20th 2011, 21:23
    I'm running Ubuntu 10.10. I installed the game and patched it to 1.7 (though oddly enough it wouldn't let me patch 1.6 because it said I already had 1.6 installed o.O) and when I try to run single player, it says "Cannot locate the DVD-ROM. Please insert the correct DVD-ROM, select OK, and restart application." I have the D drive set to the correct place in winecfg, and can hear it reading the disc when I try to start the program.

    The terminal gives me the following error:

    fixme:mountmgr:harddisk_ioctl unsupported ioctl 70020

    (The terminal is filled with this same error over and over again, but I figure it's only useful for me to post it once xD)

    Anyone know how to fix this?
    RE: Cannot Locate DVD-ROM
    by Joshua on Wednesday March 23rd 2011, 8:06
    Fixed it. Download the no-disk patch from

    m0001.gamecopyworld.com/games/pc_call_of_duty_4.shtml#Call of Duty 4 v1.7 [MULTI] No-DVD/Fixed EXE

    Replace the iw3sp.exe in your CODMW folder in Wine with the one from the download, and it should run. If you have a version of COD other than 1.7, make sure you either update to 1.7 or get the no-disk patch for the appropriate version (the one I linked to is specifically for 1.7).

    no wide screen since wine 1.2 (stable)
    by D3liteNL on Wednesday July 28th 2010, 21:36
    Hi guys,

    I've been playing COD4 a very long time and in all the previous releases I've been able to play on a widescreen resolution [1920x1080]. Since the stable version of wine 1.2 came out I haven't been able to play on widescreen-mode (the game crashes while loading a level and then I get a message which states it might be a DirectX problem, installing DirectX with WineTools wouldn't help)

    Anyhow is there a fix for this because running the game on 1400x1050 just isn't so much fun as it is in my max res (I have a blue sidebar since I'm running it in a virtual desktop and it's rather annoying)

    Thanks in advance!!!

    RE: Black screen!

    I had exactly the same problem. Black screen with only sounds. I fixed it by installing this library

    apps.ubuntu.com/cat/applications/libtxc-dxtn-s2tc0/

    That's for ubuntu but I think you can find the package in the repos of other distros as well.

    I don't understand "first is it missing", or perhaps I should say where do I look for it (the gamefonts_pc file)?
    RE: gamefonts_pc.iwi is missing
    by Mark  Ackerman  on Wednesday March 3rd 2010, 13:48
    Ok I have reinstalled it and get the same gamefonts_pc missing error. I have installed it in windows with no problems so it is not the program that's the problem. Here is the cli output if that helps.

    Game doesn't start
    by FJA on Saturday November 14th 2009, 12:43
    I just installed COD4 on Opensuse 11.0, Wine 1.1.33 ans patched it to 1.7. Game doesn't start, it shows following error message: "Fastfile for zone 'code_post_gfx' is corrupt or unreadable". The file is 100% correct. The same error without any patches. I have NVIDIA GTS 250 card, 185.18.14 drivers. I use integrated Realtek sound card, maybe it's the reason. I have seen many people having this bug, no working solution. Demo works OK.
    Crash when beginning to play

    Don't install directx as how it says in the howto instead use d3dx9 if you need to but in later versions of wine you shouldn't need to install dx at all.

    Just a note about the PB section
    by LBM on Tuesday October 6th 2009, 15:12
    For clarity I think it should be mentioned here that playing CoD4 on servers with PB enabled is a no go. This is due to the API checks that PB does, which will fail when using Wine.

    For more information on the issue see:

    Does this work or not?
    by Erik on Sunday October 4th 2009, 10:57
    Hi

    A friend of mine are trying linux, and wants to play COD4, I know myself that it worked fine in older releases, but does it work now?

    What works
    Game startup, and opening menus.
    Option changes.

    What does not
    The game itself.

    What was not tested
    Gameplay

    So, in other words, are this broken with 1.1.30?
    RE: Does this work or not?
    by Erik on Sunday October 4th 2009, 14:44
    Forgot to mention that i am asking because the test version here are 1.1.26, not 1.1.30.
    Also note that i saw some things in the bug-fixes concerning depth of field.
    RE: Does this work or not?
    by Temar on Monday October 5th 2009, 12:01
    I didn't test multiplayer, but COD4 v1.7 Singleplayer works with wine-1.1.30 on kubuntu jaunty 9.04. Just use winetricks to install the required direct3d libraries and decline the DirectX Installation when asked by the COD4 Installer.

    1. Install COD4
    2. Patch COD4 to v1.7
    3. Install NoCD Crack
    4. Download winetricks: wiki.winehq.org/winetricks
    5. Execute: /bin/sh winetricks d3dx9
    6. Play

    > I take it that you don't have to install the No CD crack to run it.?

    I'm not sure as I didn't try it without a NoCD crack. As most copy protection systems do not work in wine, you probably have to use one.

    I tryed to apply the PB patches but they seem outdated....i manually updated the content of the biggest one in the respective dll targets but the other two patches values are no longer present in their respective dll targets in wine 1.1.20 so i can't make the mods at all !!!

    Can you help with this ?!?

    RE: Howto
    by Richie on Sunday April 5th 2009, 14:27
    I have no problems running COD4 without the directx redistributable installed. When you suggest to install directx, but don't do any DLL overrides, I'm guessing the real reason is that you are actually avoiding the post install attempt to update directx failure? I could see where that's plausible because of registry entries and things that the redistributable would be doing.

    Anyway, in the past, the game still runs fine and can still be patched if the directx updater fails though. In contrast, I haven't *reinstalled* COD4 in a long time so if it's anything more than this (more installer failures) perhaps a bug needs to be logged.

    I tested release 1.1.18 on my current COD4 installation and didn't have any problems and my fps is comparable to what you have posted.

    I personally opt for a redistributable free wine installation since wine's goal is to fully implement those dll's. There's also implications regarding support described in the wine FAQ.
    RE: Howto
    by Stefano Petullà on Tuesday April 7th 2009, 6:51
    Confronting your post I made a fresh install of wine (version 1.1.18) and installed COD4, then I set in winecfg d3dx9_34, d3dx9_36 and d3dx8 to builtin to make it work. Then I set my regedit configs like point 6 of my howto. The result was that the game works,but with a lower performance of the game (fpsmaxrate 40, avarage 25).
    RE: Howto
    by Richie on Tuesday April 7th 2009, 8:45
    builtin is the default for the implemented dll's, so I don't know why it would be required for you to manually set d3d dll's to builtin (especially on a fresh wine install) in order to "make it work".

    Also regarding my original point; if you go and install the directx9 redistributable and then don't set any specific d3d dll overrides ( Native) then wine will still use the builtin implentations of those respective dll's. Any implemented dll's can have corresponding files out in the wine system32 dir, but they are just stub files (so that they have a physical presense on the filesystem). There's more to it than just replacing them.

    I'm *not* trying to say that you are not experiencing a performance differences between your two install methods, however, but I do think there's more to it than this and it would be interesting to know what it is.

    I can't go to multiplay servers it just get stuck to "Synchronizing game settings". And after a while, comes: "Error. Server connection timing out". And it does it in every server, so I can't play multiplay. Can someone help me with this. And the three dots are going, and it means that, the game doesn't die... I really would like to play multiplay, because it's so fun. ;)
    Punkbuster?
    by David Stenberg on Thursday March 12th 2009, 7:42
    I see many people talk about Punkbuster and that it is working, and I just think that seems very unlikely. I have tried the 3 patches for 1.1.5 and they worked a bit longer than no patches, but you are ultimately thrown out of the game after one minute or something like that. Are you sure you did in fact play on a Punkbuster server, you that claim that Punkbuster is working? If so, please post a how-to or something like that.

    Hi, I was really happy that the game is works fine execpt that its un game able due to the FPS it about 1-3. Even with the yitch3 config...

    The system is an MSI EX600X LAPTOP with dual intel core 1.7 & 3 Gb RAM.
    Tipps ideas?
    Is there any special setups in wine?

    COD4 tweak
    by Patryk on Thursday December 11th 2008, 7:39
    Hi,
    This is link to article about "The yitch3 configuration"

    bashandslash.com/index.php?option=com_content&task=view&id=320&Itemid=74

    Yitch3 is configuration file made for "folks with crappy computers so that they can keep up with all the sleek, speedy new systems on the cutting edge of online play". :) I didnt test it on linux, beacuse ATM i dont have installed COD4. When I tested it on Windows, after I've loaded this config I get ~100fps (~30-40fps before). If anyone have problem with low fps, can try to use this config.

    Wine 1.1.9
    by K McCarthy on Friday December 5th 2008, 15:27
    Installed 8.04 LTS-32 on an Asus A8N_E with 2gb and 100gb, Nvid card (a few years old). Updates and drivers done, etc.

    Installed Wine 1.1.9 and the 9x_34.dll and added it to wine's library.

    I also downloaded and installed the windows version of punkbuster (without recompiling) just to see what would happen.

    Loaded COD4 and turned off all problematic graphics modes. COD4 loaded and worked fine. Got online and played for a bit before getting booted (punkbusted). Went back into a non-punkbuster server and it worked fine. No crashes. That was yesterday.

    Today is different. After booting up wine 1.1.9, it couldn't mount any drives. When you open winecfg, the drives tab shows Failed to connect to the mount manager, drive conf cannot be edited. It also gave me the "WIN_IMPROPER_QUIT_BODY" error too. I noticed that when I went into drive C via wine's separate "Browse C:\drive" link, I can see the drives, but when you right click to open the COD4 executable with wine, it does not offer wine as an option. It just says "Open". I rebooted the system and the Win_Improper_Quit_Body" error went away, but the drive fail to connect persists. Any thoughts? Many thanks and Merry Christmas! Mac

    by John Pycroft on Tuesday December 9th 2008, 7:25
    ok, "WIN_IMPROPPER_QUIT_BODY" is the same as the "run in safe mode" question in windows, just delete the iw3sp__ and iw3mp__ files from your home directory and the COD4 install directory

    The framerate is rather poor, considering my hardware runs it without any fps-drop in Windows.

    i get nearly no loss of framerate, i use a launcher which is just a shell script, i'll post it here, just put it in a text file on your desktop and set it to be executable, this also depends on wine having the sound drivers set to OSS and having alsa-oss installed

    Fixed the framerate in ubunto 8.10
    by Jonathan Selfridge on Friday November 21st 2008, 22:10
    Install the 1.1.8 wine from the winehq repo and install alsa-oss
    turn off anti aliasing and select OSS audio in winecfg
    Install COD Retail and run it with the following command from the COD4 dir:
    aoss env WINEDEBUG='-all' wine-pthread iw3sp.exe
    since emulating Direct x is CPU intensive starting wine with multiple threads speeds things up drastically, however you must have a multi-core system
    you must use aoss or your sound will crash since only one process can access oss at the same time. It's weird but using the oss wrapper for alsa lets you use alsa without all of the clipping,
    The WINEDEBUG='-all' suppresses the debug messages and speeds thing up a bit more.
    I also set fbo in the registry.

    RE: Fixed the framerate in ubunto 8.10
    by Richie on Tuesday December 2nd 2008, 9:39
    his second example showed quotes around the windows style path. Either add the quotes as was depicted or you can specify the linux style path instead, ie. WINEPREFIX="/home/justin/.wine" WINEDEBUG='-all' wine-pthread /home/justin/.wine/drivec/Program\ Files/Activision/Call\ of\ Duty\ 4\ -\ Modern\ Warfare/iw3mp.exe
    -however-
    consider changing into the specific directory (linux path) first:
    cd /home/justin/.wine/drivec/Program\ Files/Activision/Call\ of\ Duty\ 4\ -\ Modern\ Warfare
    and then calling:
    WINEPREFIX="/home/justin/.wine" WINEDEBUG='-all' wine-pthread iw3mp.exe
    directly thus avoiding the need for a path. The first example in the original posting had implied that.

    Since I can't test these suggestions you are going to have work around any typos. This won't be an issue if you understand paths and your specific setup.

    I'd seriously consider reading up on command line basics and what not so as to be able to find your way around. I think it will be more beneficial to you with that approach rather than learning on a case by case basis. Other complexities are going to crop up while using wine [ ie. manual patch and compile of the wine source ] and there are guides for alot of things, but most any guide out there will assume you are familiar with certain basic concepts.

    I assume you have two problems based on the translation. One is punkbuster and the second is a sound issue. For the punkbuster patches you want to save each one to a text file and then use the "patch" command to apply the changes to the source code. You would then compile and install wine manually. I will give you the jist of what to do:

    1) download the wine source: either use git (www.winehq.org/site/git) -or- tarball (ibiblio.org/pub/linux/system/emulators/wine/)
    2) patch the source: cd ; patch -p1 < /path/to/patch.txt (for each patch you saved)
    3) build wine: wiki.winehq.org/Recommended_Packages -or- wiki.winehq.org/WineOn64bit as appropriate

    Note: The punkbuster patches are listed for wine version 1.1.5. If, while applying those patches to a newer wine source, you get any HUNK failures then you may as well get the 1.1.5 wine source and apply it to that unless you can find or create updated versions of the patches.

    Regarding, your other issue may be caused by running COD4 from a NTFS file system. I don't know that for sure, but perhaps you want to install it via wine onto a native filesystem and see how that does. You could just copy over the files to a wine prefix but I expect that COD4 patches would fail to install due to missing registry keys.
    Got it.

    I got it working for both single and multiplayer in Kubuntu 8.04 with wine 1.1.7. I have yet to try a PB server but when i had it enabled in my user options it gives severe lags in the game play and my ping fluxes all over the board (from what my friends have told me).

    sorry,the wine version are 1.1.6 and 1.1.3
    by 070 on Monday October 13th 2008, 8:40
    1.1.6:
    it has the "alpha blend" problem, it seems that 3dmark patch is still required...

    1.1.3 with 3dmark patch:
    it start with a black screen.Everything is ok except the screen.
    RE: sorry,the wine version are 1.1.6 and 1.1.3
    by Richie on Monday October 13th 2008, 9:11
    The 3DMark patch was originally created as a result of a deficiency in the NVIDIA driver and the original error message for COD4 was "Error during initialization: Video card or driver doesn't support enough textures for the DirectX 9 code path".

    The patch was a hard coded hack to make things work in wine versions earlier than 1.1.3.

    as of 1.1.3, wine shouldn't need this patch, perhaps you are assuming it is already applied? To my knowledge, the patch was never commited as it was, but code was changed in order to work around the driver issue.

    1.1.3 - 1.1.6 run fine without this patch on nvidia.

    I believe that your problem is ATI specific and really shouldn't have anything to do with the old 3Dmark patch.

    To run CoD4SP you will need to download a crack. Because wine cant handle that copy protection.

    Download a crack here: www.gameburnworld.com and replace your .exe file. After that it works just fine.

    How to use the PB Workaround in Cedega?
    by Türklinke on Monday October 6th 2008, 10:46
    Hi,
    I'm using Cedega for CoD4, cause there I have a much better performance then under wine. But unfortunately i can't use there PB. I have also some problems to try out your tutorial. Is it possible to write an exact description, means every step written out (with your directories,...). Maybe i can adapt it to Cedega.

    Greetings,
    Trklinke

    networking problems
    by Gunther on Friday September 26th 2008, 15:30
    Is anyone experiencing similar networking problems after 1.4 upgrade?
    Server browser is empty, Refreshing turns up empty. Manually connecting (/connect ) just times out
    Deleting servercache.dat does not help

    I do not think my firewall is the problem, I already tried
    bypassing it.

    Next to that I tried adding a whole bunch of evenbalance and activision servers to my /etc/hosts file, to counter dns-resolving issues, but tcpdump does not show a single packet leaving the system after that.
    With or without PB, no difference

    When i firstly tried to play cod4 under wine, i was still using windows. So i installed the game under windows, exported the registry keys and imported them in the wine registry. The game worked fine. I think it was wine 0.9.59, patched with the 3dmark patch. Now (1.1.3-1.1.5) no patch is required.

    Install it on ANY version of Windows. Then export the registry keys, and import them int the wine registry (first adjust them to your game path). Then play.

    PS: I finally managed to make punkbuster work (under wine), I'll add a how-to later in the day.

    No, you copied the game from a windows installation and imported the registry keys, just to avoid the installation. You have to adjust the path.

    With latest GIT wine (wine-1.1.2-307-g520ab5c) you probably don't need ANY PATCH. Game works out of the box, tested on demo.
    The patch mentioned above does not work for wine > 1.1.1 anyway.

I'm still running kubuntu 7.04 that has 96.31 nvidia drivers in the repos, when I went into the game main menu was fine as soon as I went to another menu (even if I used to cod console to connect to server) my screen turned black. I read that you must insure that color correction is set to default, though that wasn't the problem... so:

    I downloaded NVIDIA-Linux-x86-173.14.09-pkg1.run from nvidia,
    (already had build-essentials & kernel headers)
    uninstalled nvidia-glx & restricted-modules
    installed the driver started kdm, now it works fine :)
