CoD4 steam community locked out
26.04.2018 - 22:34 Uhr, von DerMaddin3 hours ago, steam user's Call of Duty 4 received an "update".
Actually this "update" is a downgrade from version 1.7 to 1.6. Therefore the whole CoD4-steam-community is now beeing locked out from the greater part of the cod4-community/servers.
Yet there is no statement from Activision or Infinity Ward, so we don't know if this is serious or just a mistake.
At the moment there is no known fix or workaround to upgrade back to 1.7.
Discussion on steam community forums:
Further updates will follow as soon as known.
- You may try to replace the iw3mp.exe with the original, 1.7 one (make sure to get it from secure sources / friends. Do not download anything from untrusted web).
- Another approach is to copy the whole steam CoD4 folder to another directory and performing the 1.7 patch setup there.
Follow these instructions for a workaround:
