Just download the installer and install it. I dont care what cd's you think you have it will work. I cant belive someone said he needs direct x 9 for a opengl game! Also it works fine in regular wine so dont stress about transgaming.

well I got the cvs cedega. But it tells me:

Your video card seemes to be missing one or more features required to run Call of Duty.

I don't get this message on Windows so is it some video card emulation problem?

Now there's odd.

CoD has only ever run for me under Cedega/cvscedega and never wine.

On the back of my copy of CoD it clearly states DirectX9b is required to the point that it is included on the disks.

I installed CoD using loki installer. The 1.5 patch is included and it means it will install the 1.5 patch after the 1.0 is installed from CDs. Call of Duty runs fine under standard wine for me. The "Your video card seemes to be missing one or more features required to run Call of Duty." means you didn't install the graphics driver for linux (It works fine with ATI and i hear it works fine with nVidia).

If "can not load default.cfg please make sure it is in the correct folder" happens, run CoD with codmp (not CoDMP.exe) script which installed with the loki.

I can only play on punkbuster-enabled servers which have the PB for linux installed. Many servers have the PB installed only for windows. I think this is your problem too. The solution is mail the admin and tell him to install all of the six PB files. See punkbuster.com/index.php?page=dl-cod.php.

If the sound delays after video just uncomment and change the following in your ~/.wine/config:
[dsound]
"HELmargin" = "2"
"HELqueue" = "2"
"SndQueueMax" = "7"
"SndQueueMin" = "3"
"HardwareAcceleration" = "Emulation"

You could try lower values for SndQueues if this isn't good. I am using alsa.

I was wrong about pb. I think inadequate o/s privileges has something to do with just copying the game, not installing it. Maybe the installer writes something in registry and it's needed to play with PB. The same thing will probably happen on windows when yoou just copy the game. Try installing it with loki. If you get kicked for something like "Couldn't update PB client" then it's a server problem. See post above.

Call of Duty and Call of Duty: United Offensive run perfectly under wine. Use the Loki installer found at http://liflg.org to install the games and patch them to the latest version for multiplayer.

The games actually run better in vanilla WINE than Cedega.

Oh well the FAT partition idea was a perfect bummer...

I'm gonna try the loki installer if I can download it. (Bad internet)

Either use one of the torrents (to save their bandwidth) or wget (or Kget if you use KDE), either of these should be able to download an uncorrupted file no matter your connection.

After using the loki installer, when I try to run CoDMP.exe under cvswine, the server starts, but I get an error message stating that 168 sound files are in a bad format and then I am forced to exit. I haven't seen any mention of this under this thread so far, perhaps one of you could offer a suggestion as to how to rectify this? cvswine was compiled under gcc 4.0.2, in case that lends to the problem. The game seems to execute just fine until it searches for the sound files.
