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:

  • DerMaddin: if you are on steam, well you cant see since server is on 1.7 and client on 1.6. If you have a standalone and codx installed, there are two lists, the default showing codx servers only and the other showing "legacy" servers where our servers reside in.
  • KRWLNG: And I don't see any servers on the ingame list in order to play on UA servers. Would it be possible to switch the servers to the downgraded steam version?
  • stachu: I'm pretty sure most of the people just search servers in game, they don't have it saved as favoruite. They just want to play on the most populated server, but You simply can't see any of UA servers in the in game browser, or it's just me, dunno.
  • ProXicT: If you want to have a discussion about this, then you should act fast while it is still viable. You should contact the people, you are the leader of the server
  • DerMaddin: Ya, of course, I understand this. And appreciated your contribution. we will need to go for some organisational upgrades, ofc...
  • ProXicT: Well, I was trying to help at least one year ago, but the ignorance has discouraged me. I would really like to help keep this server running, but to help I need someone to communicate the ideas with. I cannot do much without it.
