Hey folks,

I dunno if this is allowed in the OT forum or not, but I just gotta say it:

CoD is one amazing game, like playing through a movie.

It would be the greatest game Ive ever played if it were not or BUGS! Good lord on high the bugs in this thing are BAD!

My advice; If you are looking at getting it wait till they release a patch.

I have been having probs with this game too but I thought mine were graphic card related. The game keeps crashing.

Well some people are experienceing a 'tearing' effect apparently, but not I.

Mine happens every time the vision goes into blur mode ie when my guy dies or an arty shell lands nearby. The game just locks up.

The people who programmed it are saying it is ATI's problem, meanwhile EVERYONE else is saying it's their fault, because every other Quake 3 engine game works fine.

One of them is gonna patch it soon, I hope.

I too have experienced various bugs while playing the game. At any rate, I came across this pretty good interview (link below) conducted with the game's developers at the callofduty.org site. Apparently, a patch to address most of these problems will go into testing over the next couple of weeks. They also said new maps would most likely be released with these upcoming fixes.

What bugs pls. Just curious as I have only been playing MP and although some one last night was talking about a "falling off building bug" I have not experienced anything adverse yet... A truly excellent game ,BTW, well worth the wait, some of the MP maps are amazing and the sound is deafening when the action gets hot.

The only bug I've encountered is the bad aim bug. I see a target I aim and I get shot..../i/smilies/16x16_smiley-very-happy.gif j/k I have been very lucky so far I haven't experience any serious lag, or encountered any buggs.

No bugs for me, and I played on a stock Dell system at my friend's house. I only played through the the first two campaigns though.

Call of Duty has been ruined by hacks, not bugs.

IMO it runs 110% more smoothly than Rvs. Rvs, now THAT is a game filled with bugs. UBI released a patch to fix one bug and creates three new ones AND doesn't fix the original bug it intended to. /i/smilies/16x16_smiley-indifferent.gif

Well that's a shame, Farny /i/smilies/16x16_smiley-indifferent.gif


And you say it would be the greatest game, if it were not for the bugs; Then what is the greatist game you've ever played? /i/smilies/16x16_smiley-indifferent.gif

It was pretty good (T'was an Xbox version), but I'd still stick with RvS /i/smilies/16x16_smiley-indifferent.gif

Yah, CoD crashes for me too, but don't worry, it'll be fixed soon. From what I've heard, this is a pretty wide-spread problem, so they won't ignore it.

I'm going to quit reading all these posts about games that crash... or bugs.

This game was running fine for me untill i read this... then On another forum i heard they released EAX 4.0 and i downloaded that.

Now the game starts to lock up with a Highpitched whine. /i/smilies/16x16_smiley-sad.gif Dangit!!

I've had that very same problem... until I downloaded the latest version of display drivers - haven't had any problems since then (mind you, I don't have an ATI though).

I wish I still had my old EAX drivers. The new ones I downloaded makes very strange random noises during games, and I'm almost sure it's causing the lock-ups while playing COD, because the first time I played it, I played it all the way through fine. This is the demo I'm talking about BTW, I didn't buy the game.

Haven't had any crashes with CoD yet, nor experienced any cheats or hacks. Maybe the Australian cheats are just a little slower than the rest of the world.

There is one bug I've experienced though. In MP if you jump and happen to land on the back of a crouched teammate (may happen with enemies too, I've never tried), you get thrown about 200ft in the air. You get a good view of the map while you're falling back down though /i/smilies/16x16_smiley-happy.gif

Can't be ATI's fault, I have an Nvidia card(GeForce4 4200, a bit old, but still supports directx9) and CoD crashes after 10 minutes when I have it at resolution 100x620.
