HowTo / Notes


HOWTO: Install for those with sound issues. 

1. Install using this ( )
Please Note: You may install as root (it will give ALL users access to the same COD) or as user, giving it to only one user. Saves on multiple installs.
2. Chmod directory to 0777 (you need write permission for configs).
3. Run winecfg. Ensure "driver emulation" under sound is not checked. Runs on ALSA or OSS (depending on your setup, I prefer ALSA but has been reported to work on OSS).
4. It will run as "codmp" or "codsp."

Loki Installer's Binary Preferences

The Loki installer was designed to give WINE last preference.  If you wish to edit this, do the following:

Substitute paths and editor as required/desired.  The path used is Gentoo but I am told works on other distrobutions as well.
a) nano -w /usr/local/bin/codmp
Line 5 says "WINE_NAMES". The list will be checked sequentially. Remove WINE from the end, add it to the front. Alternatively, if you use CVSWINE, add cvswine to the beginning and remove cvswine from its position.
b) nano -w /usr/local/bin/codsp
Same as above

Keep in mind if you do not edit this file it will try Cedega, CVSCedega, Winex3 and CVSWinex and finally Winex before attempting to use WINE.

Since Winex3 and Winex are older software I strongly recommend moving WINE ahead of all of them, with the exception of Cedega if you are that way inclined.

Multiplayer Issue

While the issue actually has NOTHING to do with Call of Duty itself, it should be posted.

Some users will get a 507 "insufficient O/S priviliges" error in game. This is generated by "PunkBuster" the software that is aimed at stopping cheats.

For those wondering the same error occurs in Cedega 4.4.2 and 4.4.3 (as well as previous versions). This problem is not isolated to WINE, the same issue appears to occur on 64bit Installations of Windows XP and Mac OS X systems.

Please note: Users with this problem can still play on servers without PunkBuster enabled.  It is not an issue with Call of Duty.  All errors should be referred to the team.
