    This is really frustrating.

    I just downloaded the 1.7 patch but cannot play on the new maps!

    Whenever I try to play on Creek, Broadcast, or Chinatown, I get an error. For example, if i try to play on creek, I get this:

    mp_creek.ff is different from server

    Is anyone else getting this????

    Please help me :(

    Nope, worked just fine for me. Did you already try to re-install and download the patch again?

    If I download the patch again, will I lose my rank, etc?

    save your profile
    you can put it back later.


    applications/call of duty 4/call of duty 4 data/players/profiles

    if you save the whole folder you should be ok

    I already installed it again, and patched it up again, and it still won't work :(:(:(

    I'll download the whole patch again.. Maybe it downloaded incorrectly? Can you guys give me the link to the page where you downloaded the patch?

    (I have the box version.... not the downloaded version of the game)

    ^ Thats where I downloaded it from

    BTW, I found something out, that will hopefully help out.

    In the folder where all the maps are, i saw that the new maps had a different skin than the rest.... they had a black skin and said something like exe on the image.

    Maybe I downloaded the wrong one again?

    I am currently re-installing and downloading patch from that link you gave me. If it doesn't freaking work.... GAH!

    Yeah, that was exactly what I was thinking. I have been talking to a cousin about this - his version works perfectly (he got the digital download, though). And I'll ask for his updated map pack files if it doesn't work.

    (BTW, it should work if he's got the digital and ive got the boxed, right?) And should I just ask for the new map pack?

    Alright:

    I've just installed COD4. And right now, I don't have those black files, so... so far, so good.

    I've still got 35 mins. till the patch downloads, so I'll give you the list of files through here. BTW, we're talking about the same folder, correct?

    COD 4 DATA ----> zone ------> english -------> *files we're talking about*

    Right?
