P04.iwd download failure

Postby Spaz » Tue May 24, 2016 2:51 pm

Haven't been able to get on the server for more several days, due to a file not being able to be downloaded. P04.iwd

Anyone have a link to manually download the file?

(I'm on a Mac, in case that matters).

I play on a Mac and I don't see that file in my folders did you try quitting and restarting game , for me sometimes it speeds up the redirect.

More on this: I deleted the P01, P02, and P03 files. It then downloaded all but P02, which I manually restored.

When P02 is present, it prevents certain sounds from playing properly (flag take, flag capture, as examples), and other downloads.

Anyone else see these sorts of issues?

I'm on Mac OS X 10.11.5, on 8 core Mac Pro, 28GB RAM, in case that matters. Crummy video card, though. (GT 120, 512MB)

Hi Hap. It's in the COD2 Data\main folder.

Hey Spaz,

Not sure why you're having issues with that. Odd.

Of course COD2 can be a pain to download mods, but I'm sure you've tried all the obvious methods - re-try, re-try, re-try, quit the game, open it, loop :D

http://redirect.chi.gameservers.com/8.6.74.23_28960//main/P04.iwd this is the file that you require, as you know, just drop in in your main dir

I really can't help you at all with any Mac specific information - sorry.

As for the sound issue you mentioned, again - odd. Works fine here.

You might have some conflicting files in your main folder. I would recommend dumping the lot. As we're not 100% convinced that's the issue, when I say dump it... I mean re-locate.

I created a screen grab of the only files you need to run MP COD2 inside your main DIR:

Just like I did, if you can on the mac arrange the files by Date, this will group all the files in the above together.
CUT every single file out of there that is not in the above and drop it in a new folder that is not within your COD DIR. So, just dump them in a new folder on your Desktop - or something.
Now join DB, maybe reconnect / close / exit a few times until you grab what you need and see if that solves any of your current quirks, if it does... just delete that folder on your desktop. IF it doesn't... then you can drop them back in to save you doing any further re-downloading.

It's worth a try. The aim here is to remove any junk you might have picked up along the way.

I believe we have a few mac players who are currently playing without any issue so I don't think it's mac specific anyhow.

Good luck.

I am using a mac with no issues but my version is a download from the Mac APP store. Only time I had an issue when the App server has had an issue. Other than that it works fine on two of my computers.

Private Tiger, performed what you said, stripped the folder down as shown, and just had success. Whew! I can play again!
