Water help
Call of Duty 4 : CoD4 MP Mapping
Poo-poo is an excellent way of describing it! Lol Probes didn't make a difference for me (tried that first thing ages ago actually). I read somewhere else that portalling the water areas was the trick, can anyone confirm this? I am hoping that's not th... [more]

Water help
Call of Duty 4 : CoD4 MP Mapping
Yep. Anything other than canal water looks really bad, and even canal water doesn't look good. Stretching doesn't seem to help. edited on Jul. 10, 2008 08:45 pm by illram... [more]

image folder help
Call of Duty 4 : CoD4 MP Mapping
Are you sure you are looking in the right place? The root cod4 directory. Try searching your PC, and if that fails, try adding it yourself. If that doesn't work try clicking the "run converter" program? (Last button on the tools). Just a total guess bu... [more]

Water help
Call of Duty 4 : CoD4 MP Mapping
If I may bump this thread, I am currently having the same problem. No matter how much I stretch my water, it looks really plain and boring and unrealistic. Only one or two of the many textures I have tried seem to have any movement, or even visible ripple... [more]

Lisence Agreement
Call of Duty 4 : CoD4 MP Mapping
How is taking responsibility for the content going to prevent activision from passing on a suit to you? Think about it. The reason they want you to warn people is so they don't come after activision but instead come after you. By all means put the warning... [more]

You mean it loads up TDM and switches to backlot, but you want to know how to initially load it as dom? Two solutions: 1) Go to server set up and set the gametype to domination and then load via console or 2) in the console type g_gametype d... [more]

Compiling problem
Call of Duty 4 : CoD4 MP Mapping
No text, nothing, just black space? If the last thing your log says is "loading mp_yourmap.map" then something is up with your .map file. Try renaming it and compiling again. Also no need to have "connect paths" checked when compiling and mp map. ... [more]

Minimap works...but?
Call of Duty 4 : CoD4 MP Mapping
In my experience, using anything other than a height of 10,000 when taking your pic will give you the improperly calibrated map image you are talking about. To properly adjust the white box size, go into your .map and move the minimap corners out far e... [more]
