Update COD install w/ Point2Play
 
I have successfully installed COD and even though it runs dreadfully in SP I'd like to try MP but to do that I need to update:
Downloaded and extracted patch [1.5]
Found the path w/ P2Play
First message box mentions it can't find the install, expected prob
Then it says it can't find the CD Key [prob lookin in the reg] and recommends a reinstall / setting the key in MP [Tried and Failed]

Anyone know of any tips? [Other than hexing out the key check from the patch]

Thanx

PS Anyone know how to get R6 Raven Shield working under Cedega?

:)

Solved
 
Using cedega/point to play.....

As the cedega release notes suggested I added:
[SOFTWARE\\Activision\\Call of Duty]
"InstallDrive"="D:"
"InstallPath"="C:\\Program Files\\Call Of Duty"
"Language"="1"
"Version"="1.1"

to a load of system.reg files [cedega/p2p/cod install] without a any success

using P2p the update install was called CODu
I opened its install folder [~/.point2play/CODu/]
and added the reg entries into system.reg
this eliminated the first dialog saying it could'nt find the install...so I knew I was onto something
Next I had to find out the reg key name of the key code [thank god OS apps dont include this crap] which turned out to be "codkey"
So add
"codkey"="yourkeywithoutdashes"
and all should work.
I'm now playing cod happily online..thats until PB is gonna kick me off for using Linux...
One thing is puzzling: how was it granted access to the cod install and not pointed towards it's own virtual c drive? I guess cedega only has a single c drive then...
BTW a low fps prob was solved by increasing all available memory enormously....

Next up: Raven Shield ;)
