Title: COD4 time trial scores!
Post by: mumble on January 18, 2009, 07:42:52 pm
Ok... Finally fixed the problem.. All of us were close, but none of us were spot on...

First, I got a copy of COD4 from a friend (PiXEL), but that also said that COD4 was already installed (the autorun had the "unisnstall" option instead of the uninstall option from the first go).

So, I installed it and uninstalled it, but nothing happened. Then I installed it and uninstalled, removing the registry files first (first with a program specific cleaner, and then reinstalled and tried doing it manually), but that didnt work either...

So I decided to go rambo, and at the risk of destroying the registry, went on a manhunt to find all entries which had any link to COD4 (COD4/Activision/call of duty 4/etc in their name, or signed by activision). Im sure I found everything (some were in places i'd never have thought of), I separated the ones which werent related to COD4 (had E464HJL09CODILH4OL.... in their name, etc) and then the ones related to COD5.

The remaining ones included registry entries from the patch, and the regular COD4 entries, but in completely wrong locations (which is why the registry cleaners didnt help). It seems that the copy I used earlier made incorrect registry entries, so the patches didnt install properly.

Anyway, after nuking those registry entries, I reinstalled COD4 and patched it without any problems.


In memory of the long weeks I was confined to single player (campaign on hardened, then veteran), I have these 2 screenies:

That was before I got the new copy... It took a lot of practice to achieve that! To get a 3 second accuracy bonus, every one of your shots has to hit... You cant believe how pissed I was that I didnt complete it 0.1 seconds faster... I think 15.1 seconds is the fastest possible time you can get with 100% accuracy...

(http://www.gamer.lk/gallery/1584_18_01_09_6_00_48.jpg)

And I finally got this after installing COD4 properly (since the server was down, I decided to get used to the controls). If you're wondering how I got this and why I missed a shot (hence the reduced accuracy bonus), I shot the last 2 targets differently... The missed shot is because it takes 2 shots to bring down a target through a wall.

I love how Price says he's "seen better"... Really??? Where? Apparently the "best time" was 15.1!

P.S: If anyone got a better score, please tell me... I love this course!

...Now if only I could master hitting the last 2 targets through the wall while running backwards towards the final position, maybe I could hit 12s.... ;D

P.S: we should start a challenge thread, no?

Then I hit this:

And finally this:

I still fell short of my goal of 12.5 seconds, though..

Also note, I DID NOT USE any glitches.

Im waiting for competition, btw...

Damn.. FRAPS and xfire video capture both make it too laggy to play.. Looks like I wont be able to make the video.. If anyone of y'all ever bump into me at venus or some place, I'll be happy to demonstrate for you.. Also, Its insanely difficult to improve on 12.45... Now Sub 13s arent too hard, but getting 12.5 and below is a huge challenge!

Vids attatched! See bottom of this post!

Hmm.. COD4 server is down. After my long absence from the world of CS, I've found that I lack sufficient skill to enjoy it and finally, I got crashed on ogame. So I decided to return to Time trials. Problem is, my mouse cant register single shot clicks and cant track regularly, leaving me externally bottlenecked at 12.45 seconds. Then I remembered I had plans to record a run for others to get a rough idea on how to do it.

My first attempt was FRAPS. EPIC FAIL! During recording, FPS hit 60, a far cry from the 125 that COD4 is designed to function at. My second attempt, demos, proved very promising until I found that there was no software for viewing .spd files (single player demo) -- As to why IW decided to have 2 separate formaets is beyond me.

My final attempt involved cranking down the resolution to 640x480  :sick: :sick: :sick:, turning off all effects/AA/AF and reducing sound quality from 44KHz to 22KHz (which is why it sounds weird). That allowed me to record at a tad over 100 FPS. Note however that 100 FPS is still horrible when the game is designed to run 125. I guess it wouldn't make a difference to someone who plays at 100 all the time, but it was way different to 125 shot registration and mouse tracking wise.

Vid 1 is me getting 13.3... I made a fatal error in turning the wrong way to shoot the targets at position 6, and I was a little slow at position 5.

Vid 2 is me getting 12.6... The start was a bit sloppier overall (especially the flash at position 3 -- I couldnt get it behind the table so I had to get back out of the room), but I made up for it at positions 5 and 6.

P.S.: One of my friends is starting to hit 13s! Finally seeing some competition. But he has an MX518! Unfair! Anyways, I want more competition!

P.P.S.: HA! To everyone who says COD4 is slower than CS!

YES! I broke 12.45! Finally! And with my crappy mouse too! Whats more, I was recording! I think I could have shaved another 0.1 seconds if I had jumped earlier.

(As usual, I have E bound to use, and I was trying to write "M" at the end, but my MP5 ran out of ammo :( )

Its just a .3 improvement over the previous fastest vid I posted, but Its way less sloppy overall. I finally shot the position 6 targets relatively quickly (as quickly as I can without a high DPI mouse).
