Guide to upgrading COD4 to 1.7
« on: October 23, 2015, 08:29:09 AM »
There is no guide to upgrading 1.0 to 1.7 so i thought i would write my own.
""If you have bought COD4 through Steam [you are already patched to 1.7]""

This guide is for the poor folk that dont have 1.7 patched all ready:

This executable is to patch from 1.0 to 1.6 assuming that your COD4 was installed with default directories and options download and install! The installer will do the rest.

Those that know me can reach me through the usual channels if you have questions.

While upgrading since PB works on 1.7 the server will be getting PB once everyone gets on 1.7 make sure you try a PB server to make sure your client is working.

Here is a video showing how to update if you need to with the instructions in the description.

Too lazy to watch the video? I don't blame you.

INSTRUCTIONS:

1. Download the PB files here: http://adf.ly/hVn38
2. Extract the files (the download is a .rar)
3. Place the files in your PB folder in your COD4 directory
a. Steam users: C:\Program Files (x86)\Steam\SteamApps\common\Call of Duty 4\PB
b. Retail: Wherever you installed it to
4. Make sure PB is on in your settings and enjoy!

IMPORTANT Note: If you're launching the game from Steam, cancel the PB installation process if it starts, but do install DirectX.

NO SERVERS IN THE SERVER LIST? Download this: http://www.mediafire.com/download/7cr... and replace the old servercache file with the one you just downloaded.

i tried to download the patch link you provide in the forum, but i think its already outdated. i tried different browser for the gamershell.com patch file. but none can be downloaded.

as my version is 1.0, i need to patch 1.6 version, then repatch again for 1.7version.

i use SOFTRONIC COD4 1.6 patch and patch again the 1.7 version. now im stick to 1.7 permanently.

hope to see you all there! 8) but my ping is quite high for 1.7 vnv server. :'(

cheers

Yes you will need it soon as SpinDry pointed out above that Punkbuster will be running on the server soon.
If you have the Punkbuster files/upgraded from version 1.0 you should be fine otherwise follow the guide for installing Punkbuster from above.

look in Call of duty 4\pb directory and you should see a listing similar to this if Punkbuster is installed

<DIR>          dll
<DIR>          htm
<DIR>          scrnshot
<DIR>          svlogs
<DIR>          svss
65,536 pbag.dll
65,536 pbags.dll
6,036 pbcl.db
887,761 pbcl.dll
897,653 pbclold.dll
956,558 pbcls.dll
887,761 pbclsold.dll
120 pbns.dat
3,504 pbns_c.dat
40 pbsv.dat
2,434 pbsv.db
425,984 pbsv.dll
 434,176 pbsvold.dll
103,736 PnkBstrB.exe
22,328 PnkBstrK.sys
530 sv_viol.log

""if not installed"" you will see this which is 100% of steam users

1,314,816 pbsetup.exe
674,600 pbsvc.exe

or the PB directory will not exist or will be empty in some cases.

I really hope to see you guys in version 1.7.  i cant change back to 1.0. I met few regular players in the server 1.7 such as Big Wally, George, Static and Lord. Still missing Farthead, Doc, Buttmuncher,Pilipinas, and the rest. (sorry i forgot your name)  Really hope we can keep in touch. Lost alot of good friends back there. Hope your spirit will never turn down.

I always look up for other US Servers in version 1.7 hoping to see you guys somewhere. but none.

Well VNV Domination server is kinda new for version 1.7, but we could attract new players to get in the server by get online in odd hours. I will regularly checking up the server for regulars and newbies. Hope to see you guys there.

*I know some of you having problems with connections. Me either! I have 250-300 ping at one time! Keep trying! So we could gather back again! Then we plan the rest of it. Just keep trying and get online to the server!

Take care and have a good one

Cheers

It sucks when people rune it for others, I don't understand why people are still hacking that game with how old it is don't they get board?

If you guys get into other games BF4 has some good peeps on it also we could put up a MW3 server, games don't cost more as I run them off the same server. At least until I run out of power then another server cost a fair amount.

We don't lag, you do!!
