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:

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:

  • ProXicT: Oh, yes. Well, in my killcam, which I'm sure I still have some recording of, it looked more like if you were shooting at taine and killed me. But I'm also sure your 140ms ping have played a huge role in that.
