Additional Comments

MBD - Asus Z87PRO
CPU - Intel i7 4770k
SSD - Samsung 840 PRO
VID - Nvidia 440 GT (310.xx)

OS Mode - Windows 7

Prefix works better on 32-Bit, so for 64-Bit users please do the following:

rm -fr ~/.wine
export WINEARCH=win32
export WINEPREFIX="/home/USER/.wine"

If it helps, this is my complete winetrick component list that applies for most applications. It saves the time and trouble of any issues or needed DLLs.

HowTo / Notes

HOWTO fix black screen

If you start the game and the intro videos play but then the screen goes black, you may need to enable S3 texture compression. To do so:

  1. Install driconf.
  2. In your system's Preferences menu, open 3D Acceleration.
  3. Under the Image Quality tab, set Enable S3TC texture compression even if software support is not available to Yes.
  4. Run Call of Duty 2. The menu should now work normally.
  5. In the game's Options menu under Graphics, set Force DirectX 7 Mode to Yes.

Call of duty 2 1.3 multiplayer Punkbaster kicked

Cod2 1.3 patch multiplayer good working - no lag - thanks @Bitmaster
but Punkbaster kicked :(
Error : PnkbstrB.exe driver failure (PnkbstrK.sys) ffab
Lag in multiplayer
by BitMaster on Friday July 27th 2012, 20:36
I should add: To fix the lag in (especially) multiplayer, run the game on 1 CPU only.

I use this command (edit to your needs):
env WINEPREFIX="/opt/games/cod2" WINEDEBUG=-all taskset -c 1 wine start /Unix CoD2MP_s.exe +set com_introplayed 1

'taskset -c 1' indicates the game should run on only one core.

I have just install Call Of Duty in up-to-date version, but when I open it, signs are not display and resolution is changing to very small.

When I play this game on Windows everything is fine.

core2duo 8200@2.66ghz
2GB 800Mhz drr2 ram
asus geforce 9600gt

game: cod2 MP(original, german) patched to 1.3
settings: details on extra, dx7, 1280x1024, no AA...
FPS: 80-180
FPS under windows xp(same config): 250+
errors: some graphical models (grass) aren't the way they are sepost to be

bdw: cod2 always had a mayor fps drop in DX9 mode(i think the first graphic cards that had an exceptable fps for online play were the 7600gt) and multicore support came in a patch(cod2 1.0 doesn't have it)

Install COD2
by Derek Walker on Thursday January 22nd 2009, 12:13
I was installing the game and while it was installing with disk one in it gave me an error with the window called "Feature transfer error" saying:

"error:-1603 Fatal error during installation.

Consult Windows Installer Help (Msi.chm) or MSDN for more information."

I am running Ubuntu 8.04 and Wine 1.1.13.

What can I do to complete the installation?

If I install CoD2, need i accept installing DirectX9c?
