Call of Duty PC -> Mac question . . .

similar to bfutrel's question about Quake 2
http://www.applefritter.com/node/view/5280

I'd rather use my legally owned copy of Call of Duty PC on my Mac instead of my PC. I've got all the /main/ files installed, along with the v1.4 apps, but it won't run because the game needs the Mac install CD, which of course I ain't got.

I'm hoping if I can create a faux install CD so I can at least see if this'll work. Anyone with the Mac version care to send me (macdan at comcast dot net) directory listings of the installed game and the install CD(s)? (or is it a DVD?) File sizes and mod dates may be helpful, but just the names will probably be enough.

TIA,

dan k

errr, why . . .

Mostly so I can use CoD as another benchmark for processor and vid card performance testing. My PC is sooo much faster than any of my Macs, I usually use the PC for demanding games.

I just hate to drop another $30 or so just so's I can see how fast (or slow) ir runs on my Macs.

OK, I got it to work - so far . . .

I used a disk image of MoH: AA - Mac, another Q3-based game (which the Mac version I actually own!), to create a new CD for CoD. I renamed everything on the MoH CD1 originally named "Medal of Honor" to "Call of Duty" and named the CD "Call of Duty". I did have to burn the CD, a mounted disk image wouldn't work.

The only files in the game folder are those from the PC CD (in /main/) and the v1.4 update apps I downloaded from Aspyr.

Veddy interesting . . . . now to see how crappily it runs on my Quicksilver! I'm just starting a new game, the training part seems to run OK.

re: Im sure there are a number of

Thanks martakz, you'd think I'd have been able to find even one n0~CD [k]! Maybe there is one out there for Mac, but I'm not patient enough to wade through all the BS sites with the conglomerated links which inevitably lead to other similar BS sites.

I ended up making my own [k], albeit not a no-CD [k]. Blum 3

Still, if anyone does know of one of those, errr, n0-cd [k] thingies for CoD, it'd make it easier not having to dig out the &%^^%& physical CD every time I want to speedtest some new configuration!
