CALL OF DUTY(tm) 1.5 PATCH README
Last Updated: 2004-12-09

INTRODUCTION & IMPORTANT NOTES

This document details numerous additions, fixes, and changes to Call of
Duty(tm) in the 1.5 patch.

IMPORTANT NOTE: Use of the in-game console is not supported by Activision(r).
Please do not contact Activision(r) Customer Support with issues that arise
from using console commands in-game.

It is strongly recommended that you disable any anti-virus software before
installing.


NOTES FOR MOD USERS:
- It is recommended that any user modifications that have been installed to the
Call of Duty(tm) directory be removed before installing this patch. These
modifications are not supported by Activision(r) and may not be compatible with
some of the new features that are included.
- Call of Duty(tm) does not support mods that have spaces in the mod's folder
name. Be sure that the folder that contains your mod does not have spaces;
otherwise users will not be able to download the files. For example, a mod in
a folder called "My Mod" would be invalid, whereas "MyMod" or "My_Mod" would
work.

IMPORTANT NOTE: Upon installing the 1.5 patch, you may be prompted to re-enter
your CD key. Please be sure to have your Call of Duty(tm) CD key handy.

INVALID INSTALLATION MESSAGE: If you get a "Setup did not detect a valid Call
of Duty(tm) CD Key" error message when installing the 1.5 patch, you can try
one of two things to address this issue:
1. Exit out of the patch setup and load up Call of Duty(tm) Multiplayer. In
the Multiplayer Options screen, re-enter your Call of Duty(tm) CD key, exit the
program, and then apply the patch again.
2. If you get the error again, exit out of the 1.5 patch installer.
Completely uninstall Call of Duty(tm), reinstall the game, and then apply the
patch.

Either one of these solutions should correct the problem.


NEW FEATURES

Added one new Multiplayer map. This map supports all current game types:

mp_tigertown

Tigertown is a small farm town located in Normandy, France which has been
partially destroyed by a heavy artillery attack. The environment is designed
for "Search and Destroy" as the American Airborne forces push their way up the
town's hillside to knock out the flak88 and Tiger tank heavily guarded by the
German Waffen SS. The Allied forces need to attack strategically and gain
ground quickly so as to distract the Axis from properly defending their
positions. Precision flanking from both sides is a key factor when taking over
and controlling the town.

Players in HQ, RE, SD, TDM, and BEL games can now call timeouts. To call a
timeout, use \matchtimeout in the console. To end a timeout in progress, use
\matchtimein. These commands are bindable. (Note to mod-makers: in order to
allow your players to call timeouts, the players have to belong to a team.ex:
Allies/Axis.)

All time measurements are in milliseconds.

Related server cvars:
1. g_timeoutsAllowed - The number of timeouts allowed per side.
2. g_timeoutLength - The length of each timeout.
3. g_timeoutRecovery - The length of the preparation period which occurs after
a time-in is called, or after a timeout expires. This recovery period is used
to alert all players that play is about to begin.
4. g_timeoutBank - The total amount of time a team can spend in timeout.
Related client cvars:
1. ui_timeoutsAllowed - Contains the value of the server's g_timeoutsAllowed
cvar.
2. ui_timeoutLength - Contains the value of the server's g_timeoutLength cvar.
3. ui_timeoutRecovery - Contains the value of the server's g_timeoutRecovery
cvar.
4. ui_timeoutBank - Contains the value of the server's g_timeoutBank cvar.

Added HTTP redirection for Servers running Mods or custom maps. To enable
redirection on the server, set sv_wwwDownload to 1. Set sv_wwwBaseURL to the
base directory where the files are stored. For example, if the server had a
file named 'myfile' meant to be stored locally at \Call of Duty\Main,
sv_wwwBaseURL should be set to "http://samplewebpage1.com/". The file should be
stored at http://samplewebpage1.com/Main/myfile. To prevent clients from taking
up a slot on the server while downloading, set sv_wwwDlDisconnected to 1. This
will free up a slot for the duration of the download and the client will
attempt to autoconnect when the download is complete. Set cl_wwwDownload to 1
to enable redirection downloading on the client.


MULTIPLAYER ENHANCEMENTS

Client console lock- Servers can now opt to disable a client's access to the
console by setting sv_disableClientConsole to 1. Mod creators should reference
the "Decimal Type Field" information under Scripting and Mods support.

Added g_deadChat - This server setting gives admins the ability to allow dead
players to chat with live players. Set this cvar to 1 to enable dead
chatting.

Added extra vote options - Players can now vote to change the killcam, draw
friendly icons, and friendly fire settings. (These do not use new cvars,
rather they give players the chance to change existing ones: scr_killcam,
scr_drawfriend, and scr_friendlyfire.)

Voting cvars for all vote options - Allows server admins to decide which voting
options their clients have access to. Set the cvar to 1 if you want to permit
players' votes on that option. New Cvars: g_allowVoteKick, g_allowVoteMap,
g_allowVoteMapRestart, g_allowVoteMapRotate, g_allowVoteTempBanUser,
g_allowVoteTypeMap, g_allowVoteDrawFriend, g_allowVoteFriendlyFire, and
g_allowVoteKillCam.

TDM scoring- Added an option to have killing teammates or committing suicide
during a TDM game reduce the team's score as well as the individual's. This
option is controlled by a cvar (scr_teamscorepenalty) and defaults to 0, which
is the original scoring method.

Private clients - The server browser now accurately displays the total number
of clients on a server-regardless of whether some of them are private clients.
The number of open private client slots is never displayed. Instead, when a
private client slot is filled, the perceived max clients value will increase.

Improved portal seams throughout the game.

Corrected an exploit that caused some servers to shut down unexpectedly.

Corrected an issue where screenshots sometimes appeared black on ATI(r)
Radeon(tm) 9800 cards

The games_mp.log file now records and formats all information properly in games
longer than 999 minutes.

The command "updatescreen" no longer turns off the ambient sound

scr_friendlyfire, scr_killcam, and scr_drawfriend are now read only cvars and
need to be setup in a config file prior to running a server. These cvars can be
changed in-game by using the voting system provided voting is enabled.


SCRIPTING AND MOD SUPPORT

IMPORTANT NOTE: Several features of the 1.5 Call of Duty(tm) patch are intended
for makers of end-user mods or to allow compatibility with certain mod
features. Most of the items listed below will only function properly with
scripting support from a mod.

New Server-Side Mod functionality - Server admins now have a way to flag pak
files as being "Server-Side only" and clients will never attempt to download
those pak files, regardless of client or server autodownload settings. To
enable this feature, place the following text anywhere in the name of the pak
file: "_svr_" (without the quotes). For instance, myservermod.pk3 would become
myservermod_svr_.pk3. This allows a server admin to leave downloading on at all
times without clients attempting to download the mod and will be especially
helpful for modded servers that run custom maps.

Added Squad chat - Players can now be assigned to squads from script. In
script, set the "self.sessionsquad" variable to one of the squad values:
"free", "squad_alpha" or "squad_bravo". The default setting is "free". There
is a new console command, which allows players to send a message to only their
squad mates. In the console, type "say_squad ". If the player is in
a squad, his message will be sent to each of his squadmates. If he is not in a
squad, the message will be sent to each of his teammates. Finally, if he is
not on a team, it will be sent to everyone. To bind this functionality to a
key, use "\bind [key] "messagesquad"".

Increased max cvar limit for MP: MAX_CVARS = 2048

Added Script command for player speed (The "maxspeed" script command sets a
player's speed before stance modifiers. If this feature is not used, the game
functions as normal.
Ex: self maxspeed(250)

Decimal Type Fields added - Menus can now be tweaked (to compensate for the
loss of console access when using sv_disableclientconsole). Print float values
by using ITEM_TYPE_DECIMALFIELD in the menu files. Pair up the decimal field
with the cvar/itemdef you wish to set and make sure that, within the decimal
field's itemdef, there is a cvarfloat defining the field's permitted numerical
range.

Added Autodemo - The autodemo capability consists of two script commands:
autodemostart and autodemostop. These commands should be placed in the
.gsc and the syntax of the command is this: player autodemostart();.
To enable the autodemo capability on the server, set g_autodemo to 1. To force
a client to accept the autodemo command, set cg_autodemo to 1. Autodemos must
be enabled on the server in order for the client's setting to matter-if
g_autodemo is set to 0, clients will not receive the command.

Added Autoscreenshot - The autoscreenshot capability relies on a script
command: autoscreenshot. This command should be placed in the .gsc
and the syntax of the command is this: player autoscreenshot();. To enable the
autoscreenshot capability on the server, set g_autoscreenshot to 1. To force a
client to accept the autoscreenshot command, set cg_autoscreenshot to 1.
Autoscreenshots must be enabled on the server in order for the client's setting
to matter-if g_autoscreenshot is set to 0, clients will not receive the
command.

Added a new demo fast forward command - "jumptodemoend".

Added 'getstance()' - A script command which returns which stance a player is
in: stance = self getstance(); Returned values will be "stand", "crouch", or
"prone."

Please free up additional hard drive space in order to correct this issue.

PUNKBUSTER(tm)

Call of Duty(tm) now includes PunkBuster(tm) Anti-Cheat software technology.
PunkBuster(tm) Anti-Cheat software technology and services combat online
cheating in Call of Duty(tm) Internet play.

The use of PunkBuster(tm) Anti-Cheat software is optional and is provided
without direct cost to our users. For more information about PunkBuster(tm) or
for PunkBuster(tm) support, please visit http://www.evenbalance.com/.

NEW FEATURES

- Added one new multiplayer map. This map supports all current game types:

mp_stalingrad

Stalingrad - In the winter of 1942, Soviet infantry from the 13th Guards
Division struggle to hold a small apartment complex in the southern end of the
shattered city. Riflemen on both sides can cover the open ground while flanking
teams armed with automatic weapons attempt to penetrate the enemy line through
a deadly close-quarters maze of urban interiors.

- New PunkBuster(tm) functionality included (as described above).

would occasionally fluctuate.
- Fixed an issue where the pure server check would no longer ignore extraneous
pak files if a demo had recently been played.
- Fixed a rare occurrence of the auto balance system preventing a player from
joining either team.






CALL OF DUTY(tm) 1.3 PATCH README
Last Updated: 2004-03-17

INTRODUCTION & IMPORTANT NOTES

This document details numerous additions, fixes, and changes to Call of
Duty(tm) in the 1.3 patch.

IMPORTANT NOTE: Use of the in-game console is not supported by Activision(r).
Please do not contact Activision(r) Customer Support with issues that arise
from using console commands in-game.

NOTES FOR MOD USERS:

ERROR WHEN SAVING GAME: If you get a "Short write in FS_copyfiles ()" error
message when attempting to save your game, it means that your hard drive is
full and there is not enough hard disk space to write the saved game file.
Please free up additional hard drive space in order to correct this issue.

EAX(r) 3 SUPPORT

Call of Duty now supports Creative(r)'s EAX(r) 3 audio system in both Single
Player and Multiplayer. Only hardware that officially supports EAX(r) 3 will
be able to utilize this feature.

For a list of sound cards that support EAX(r) 3, go to
.

Note for Audigy(r) LS and NX users: You may experience some sound distortions
when using the EAX(r) audio system. While this has been corrected for the
majority of Audigy(r) users through driver updates, these updates may not be
available for your card. If you encounter such an issue, please revert to the
Miles(tm) Fast 2D Positional Audio system.

Note on New Maps: The two new maps (Bocage and Neuville) included with the 1.3
patch do not have EAX(r) 3 support. The sound will function properly on those
maps, but there will be no EAX(r) 3 audio effects.

NEW FEATURES

- Added two new multiplayer maps, Bocage and Neuville. Both of these maps
support all current game types:

mp_bocage

The Normandy terrain provides a natural advantage to the defender. Between the
Orne and Vire Rivers is fifty miles of bocage; small fields surrounded by high
earthen banks overgrown with shrubbery. Visibility is limited to one field at
a time and the bushes provide cover from air and ground reconnaissance, making
for superior defensive terrain. Each field is a death trap, earned with a hard
fought series of firefights. The breadth of terrain and varied tactical
scenarios make this the perfect setting for the "Headquarters" game type. When
the attacks come from every direction, both teams will be put to the test.

mp_neuville

Neuville represents a destroyed town in Normandy, reduced to rubble amidst
close combat between U.S. Airborne units and battle-hardened Waffen SS troops.
Soldiers can find ample cover amidst the piles of rubble and massive shell
craters. The environment is primarily designed for the "Search and Destroy"
game type and provides a greater spread of attacking and flanking routes. This
keeps defenders on their toes, and prevents attackers from being completely
pinned down at narrow chokepoints.

GAMETYPE FIXES

- Radios for Headquarters made non-solid, to fix a potential exploit.
- Improved server load in Headquarters spawning by making reinforcements spawn
over multiple server frames rather than just one. This will create less lag
when reinforcements spawn.
- Headquarters now has a five second grace period. If you spawn and die then
you get to respawn immediately. (farther away so you are not as likely to die
again)
- Fixed the bomb ticking sound not always working in "Search & Destroy."

WEAPON & PLAYER FIXES

- Fixed an exploit where prone players who leaned around corners could see the
enemy without being seen.
- Fixed an exploit where players could switch between prone and jumping
positions to move rapidly across a map.
- Fixed a bug with the sway animation of the sniper rifle scope on high ping
servers.
- Fixed an exploit where people could get extra grenades in "Search & Destroy"
and "Retrieval."
- Fixed an exploit where reload animations could be skipped, decreasing reload
times.
- Fixed the bullet path of the PPSh and Sten in Aim Down The Sight mode.
- Fixed a bug where players in all areas of the map heard the "click" of an
empty weapon.
- Fixed several minor animation bugs related to stance, leaning, jumping, etc.

MULTIPLAYER BUG FIXES

- Fixed a slow update problem with the server list.
- Fixed a problem where the server list would improperly list servers with a
ping of "1."
- Fixed an issue with the server list being incomplete under certain
circumstances.
- When sorting the server list by a key other than ping, all entries of the
same key are sorted by ping, instead of being random.
- Fixed server determination of which clients require authorization. (This
corrects the issue where some Internet players received a GUID of 0)
- Autobalance was updated to prevent players from joining a team if this action
would cause that team to be unbalanced.
- Setting scr_teambalance to any number greater than 0 will balance teams to
within that number of players, for example, 'scr_teambalance 2' balances the
teams within 2 players. (8 vs 10 is ok, but 8 vs 11 is not)
- True spectators (not dead players) are no longer restricted by the freelook
cvar. They can always freelook.
- If you are spectating a player (through their eyes) and you go into freelook,
your view is no longer capped to the 180-degree arc of the ladder.
- Removed the 'weapon' command.
- Increased the max cfg file that can be executed to 64K from 16K.
- Unknown commands in the server console now do not print to all clients. A say
command is now required.
- Fixed an issue where rcon status would occasionally not show all of the
players on a server.
- Fixed an issue on some ATI cards that would cause water to render improperly.
(also affects Single Player)
- Fixed an issue where too many custom pak files (maps or mods) would cause the
"Pak Sum / Name Mismatch" error. (Also affects Single Player)
- As an added security feature, your CD key will no longer be displayed in the
Multiplayer Options menu.
- Fixed not being able to immediately climb on a ladder after landing from a
jump.
- The "screenshot," "screenshotJPEG," and "record" console commands no longer
overwrite existing files.
- Cheat protected r_intensity.
- Fixed player pings in the scoreboard. Previously if you were spectating
someone, your displayed ping was for the person you were spectating.
- Fixed a rare case of player stacking in multiplayer.
- The Weapon, Item, say, sayteam, and tell log prints now include client guid,
id, and name. (This will be useful for logging stats by actual player GUID,
rather than by player name)

MULTIPLAYER BUG FIXES

INTRODUCTION

This document details numerous additions, fixes and changes to Call of
Duty(tm)in the Multiplayer 1.2 patch.

IMPORTANT NOTE: Use of the in-game console is not supported by Activision(r).
Please do not contact Activision(r) Customer Support with issues that arise
from using console commands in-game.

NOTES FOR MOD USERS:
- It is recommended that any user modifications that have been installed to the
Call of Duty directory be removed before installing this patch. These
modifications are not supported by Activision(r) and may not be compatible with
some of the new features that are included.
- Call of Duty does not support mods that have spaces in the mod's folder name.
Be sure that the folder that contains your mod does not have spaces, otherwise
users will not be able to download the files. For example, a mod in a folder
called "My Mod" would be invalid, whereas "MyMod" or "My_Mod" would work.

GAMETYPE FIXES

1. Behind Enemy Lines

- Fixes some allies not showing up on the compass in large servers.
- Fixed a bug that would make enemy indicator on the compass not show up.
- Fixed the killcam window remaining on screen during the black screen when you
are about to spawn as an allied player.
- At the end of a round all players show on the same team to make it easier to
see how players ranked.

2. Search & Destroy

- You no longer have a weapon when planting the bomb.
- Planting the bomb near the end of the round stops the round timer, so that
the bomb is now the condition for victory.
- Bombs can no longer be planted after a round has been declared over.
- Reaching the timelimit (scr_sd_timelimit) no longer ends the game mid-round.

WEAPON & PLAYER FIXES

- Adjustments made to the sniper rifles to make them balanced.
- When a player lands after jumping, his/her speed is briefly reduced, making
bunny hopping a less effective tactic in multiplayer.
- Adjusted hitboxes on player models to make them more accurate and thus making
rifles more effective.
- The number of grenades given to a player is now based on the weapon selected.
Sniper rifles provide 1 grenade, Bolt-action rifles provide 3 grenades, and
all other weapons provide 2 grenades.

NEW FEATURES

1. New Gametype - Headquarters

- A radio randomly spawns into a map as neutral. Your team must capture a
radio by standing near it with no enemies around.
- Your team must control a radio to gain points. A team is awarded 45 points
for every 45 seconds it holds the radio.
- Destroying an enemy radio rewards your team with as many points as are left
on the reinforcement timer (e.g. if you destroy the radio with 16 seconds left
on the reinforcements timer, your team will receive 16 points).
- If your team loses the radio, a new radio will spawn in a different location.
This radio is now neutral and must be captured.
- Spawns are regulated by a reinforcement timer, which spawns players in 45
second intervals. This reinforcement timer is displayed on the HUD and players
only have to wait until the closest spawn period before rejoining the battle.

2. Killcam On/Off

- Added server-side cvar scr_killcam to turn on/off killcam

3. Disable Freelook Spectating

- Added server-side cvar scr_freelook to turn on/off freelook spectator mode

4. Disable spectating enemy players

- Added server-side cvar scr_spectateenemy to turn on/off spectating the other
team while dead

5. Force team balancing

- Added server-side cvar scr_teambalance to force teams to have the same number
of players. Teams with an odd number of players will be as balanced as
possible.
(Round based gametypes will adjust the teams between rounds, respawn gametypes
will adjust the teams every 60 seconds)

6. Shared Friendly Fire

-Setting scr_friendlyfire 3 will share damage in cases of friendly fire between
the victim and attacker.

7. Ban Abilities For Server Administration

Uniquely identified players printed in stats logging:
-The log used for stat tracking now includes player unique identifiers so
players can be uniquely tracked based on cdkey instead of being tracked by
player name. Note that there is no way anyone can determine your cdkey from
your GUID.

- Server administrators now have the option to Ban players from their server
permanently. The banned players are stored in a "ban.txt" file on the server,
which can be manually edited by the server admin.
- The commands "banUser" and "banClient" ban somebody currently playing on a
server by their in-game name or client number. This adds the player to
"ban.txt," and kicks them from the server.
- You can unban every uniquely identified player with the name "UnnamedSoldier"
using "unban UnnamedSoldier" from the console. If you want to unban a single
player whose name appears more than once, you should edit "ban.txt" manually.
- Server administrators also have the option of temporarily banning a player
from a server for X amount of time (in seconds). Use the command
\sv_kickBanTime to change the length of the ban. This Temp Ban option has also
been added to the CallVote menu, allowing players to kick "griefers" and
prevent them from simply reconnecting immediately.

NOTE: Ban commands are for Internet servers only. They do not function on LAN
servers.

8. Server Hardware displayed in Server Browser

- Added a column with icons displaying what hardware each given server is (Win
Dedicated, LINUX, etc).
- Added an indication whether or not the server is modded to the server
browser.

9. New Server Filters

- Added pure server, friendly fire, killcam, server modded, and dedicated only
server filters.

IMPORTANT NOTE: The "Pure Server" filter is set to "Pure Servers Only" by
default. When the patch is installed, it will show only pure servers unless
you change to another setting. This setting can be found by clicking on "Join
Server" and selecting the "Filters" submenu.

10. Server Info Screen

- On connecting to a server you will now see a server info screen which lists
the servername, message of the day, gametype, and current settings appropriate
to the gametype.

11. Timedemo statistics

- Timedemos write a .csv file based on the map name and resolution that says
how many milliseconds each frame took. This can be opened directly in a
spreadsheet program for benchmarking performance over time.

12. New script commands

- Added "precacheTurret( turretinfo )" script command to MP.
- Added "spawnTurret( classname, origin, turretinfo )" script command to MP.
- Added "enableWeapon()" and "disableWeapon()" player script commands to MP.

13. Allow Downloads

There is a new client command in the Multiplayer Options screen called "Allow
Downloading." When set to on, connecting to a server that contains a new map
or mod will automatically begin downloading the files associated with the map
or mod.

MULTIPLAYER BUG FIXES

- Removed music from multiplayer menus
- Fixed minefield explosion sounds not always playing correctly
- Fixed minefield explosion damage killing nearby players
- Teammate icons (scr_drawfriend) are smaller and slightly transparent now.
They are also based on nationality.

objectives.
- Font files now try to load from the main language folder first.
- Fixed bug where if you strafed off a ladder it would repeatedly grab and drop
the whole way down the ladder.
- When you fall from a ladder you no longer play the ladder climb down
animation.
