CoD4 steam community locked out

26.04.2018 - 22:34 Uhr, von DerMaddin
3 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:
https://steamcommunity.com/app/7940/discussions/0/1696045708644737462/

Further updates will follow as soon as known.

Update 1#:
- 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.

Update #2:
Follow these instructions for a workaround:

  • BERGSON: "from 98-120 or higher all the time" is not true. My normal ping usually equals 100. However it may increase (for examle, to 105) during start time before new round as well as most players. But in game my ping is stable, but sometimes he may changes +-5 as well as most players. For example, check ping for the following players: https://ibb.co/DLvpqQ0 : swiss 28, VAMPIRE 99, FrazeTee 42, Pat Solitano 50 https://ibb.co/R7K2nNz: swiss 23, VAMPIRE 94, FrazeTee 45, Pat Solitano 43 There is no fair reason for kick and tempban.
