I'm going to hijack this thread to Cuba.

Tech question for you guys...

So I need to install the latest Call of Duty patch. I'm having problems patching the game, however, and I suspect it's because I had problems actually installing the game in the first place. Before the game's release I had installed an alpha of the game and as we kept getting more builds I would remove them and install a new alpha. As is the case with most alphas and betas, some of these builds weren't actual installs so much as directories copies and some were actual installs.

So to be sure I had a clean copy once the game was out, I went to install the retail version. I wanted to clean out the older version first, but Windows wouldn't let me uninstall it, it gave me problems. The game itself only gave me an uninstall option, not an install or reinstall option. So after fussing with it I just figured that I'd had what was very close to the gold version anyway and only some minor things were different, I'd just copy the directories over to make sure I had the retail pak files, etc. Seemed to work -- been playing the game just fine.

But now that I can't patch it, which I suspect is due to my hack job described above, I want to completely uninstall the game cleanly and reinstall the retail game so I can patch it. But I can't seem to uninstall via Windows or the game's opening options.

So I want to delete the directories and then do whatever I need to do to clean it completely off my system. I'm sure this involves some kind of reg key cleaning, but I rarely fool with editing the registry, so I wanted to ask if you guys knew what I needed to do to completely clean the game off the system.

Thanks...

I wouldn't think you'd need to clean out any registry entries.  Just wipe out the directory, install the retail, then patch.  If it doesn't work, then it's pretty simple to just use Find in Regedit for "cod" or "call of duty" or whatever common identifier they used, and kill them.  I'd try the simplest way first, though.  Always best.

Well, delete the directories, then run regedit, browse to HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Software and HKEY_USERS\RandomString\Software and then look for keys with activision or the developer or game's name on them, then delete those after you make sure they relate to call of duty (which should be obvious).

So you fag it up for the rest of us. Thanks, Chuckles.

So, to keep it all on topic, what do you do, Warren? I mean, it probably wouldn't be worth the legal fees or anything, but do you have any recourse?

Why bother?  If someone is going to steal a $10 puzzle game, you're not going to change their minds about piracy.  Price is obviously not the reason they're stealing it ... they're stealing it because they want to.

People who want to buy it and support the developers, will.  People who want to steal it, will.  *shrug*

It isn't like it's any great badge of pride to "crack" Bubble Bomb anyway.  On a piracy difficulty scale, it probably ranks about a 1.

I've actually done all of that. The directory has been deleted, and the CoD key that I could find in the registry has been deleted. There was no CoD key in the Uninstall area of the registry.

The problem I'm getting is that when I go to install the retail version, I am ONLY given the option to Uninstall on the splash screen. I don't even have the option to install or reinstall, because it thinks the game is installed even after deleting the directories and deleting the one CoD key I saw in the registry under Software.

Greg has been helping me with this in IRC. He thinks that the game is looking for a file that I'm missing. I just don't know what file.

carynlaw@pacbell.net http://www.hellchick.net
So talking to Greg, he suggested that if someone who has CoD installed can look in the Uninstall area of their registry and see what file the game looks for when you want to unstall it, I can find that file on my system and remove it to finally reinstall the game (since my registry has no Uninstall key for CoD). Anyone able to help me out on that?

It sounds like there's something still in the registry, if the game thinks it's still installed.

There are uninstall information files and executables too, that usually get stored in the game's directory.  I don't have CoD on my machine up here at work, and I imagine you'll have the problem solved by the time I get home, but if not I'll check and see what they are.

It was cracked by IPA, which is pretty much a bottom feeder in the warez world. According to NForce, they've released about all of two titles since. Basically the weakest kid in the schoolyard picking on the special needs student... in regards to copy protection, I mean.

Well, call me an idiot today, because this solved both my problems and I was overthinking the problem too much to even think of trying this. It worked, and now the game is reinstalled and patched. :P

I was so consumed with figuring out why the game was only giving me the Uninstall option that I assumed running setup directly wouldn't even work because my system still saw the game as installed. I still don't know what was causing it to do that, but it doesn't matter now.

Caryn, not to be an asshole, but won't the devs be able to give you a quick answer?


My thinking was that a pool of many people here on the net who have a wide variety of tech backgrounds could more quickly help me solve what I was pretty sure was a general software issue and not a game-specific issue rather than asking one producer at Activision to help me troubleshoot it. Had I still had the issue with the patch not working, I would have gone to the producer and asked.

Besides, the institution of marriage is a beautiful and sacred thing, to be loved and cherished by not only the marrying couple but by everyone who bears witness to its majesty.  Well, except he got married in Romania and not Disneyworld, so that's one pretty major strike against him right the fuck there.  Ok, nevermind what I said.  Begin the pissing.

Someone explain those goddamn jesus fish to me so I can mock them better.

The earliest followers of Jesus were persecuted and forced to worship in secret locations. They adopted a secret symbol - the fish.

Often these persecuted Christians scratched the fish symbol on the ground before them to help them identify fellow believers.

The fish symbol transcends differences in cultures and denominations. From generation to generation, the fish symbolizes true followers of Jesus Christ, God's Son.

The Greek word for fish is Ichthus and the letters (Iota, Chi, Theta, Upsilon, Sigma ) form an acronym from the words Iesous Christos, Theou Uios, Soter which means Jesus Christ, God's Son, Savior.

From the SECOND LINK FROM A GOOGLE SEARCH FOR \"jesus fish\".

Just...lazy.

The fish symbol is just another case of christianity absorbing other religions in order to help convert people. Turn it on it's side, and you've got a symbol used far and wide in early religions across the globe to represent fertility. Why? Because it looks like a vaginal opening.
