Call of Duty 2: No demo controls or game crash

Post by OomJan » 19 Aug 2006, 19:33

Game: Call of Duty 2
Version: All Versions
Symptom: Crash on game start-up with error messages or no/partial demo controls with Seismovision 3

Error messages include:

Code: Select all

Error during initialization:
Script compile error
(see console for details)

Or

Code: Select all

Attempted to overrun string in call to va()


Solution:
Below is a screenshot of all files in the ‘main’ folder of Call of Duty 2 v1.3. The ‘.iwd’ files are the data files for Call of Duty 2. Remove all ‘.iwd’ files not contained in the list below and your problem should be solved.

Note:
All the problem reports that I received for Call of Duty 2 had the same solution. Some mod or add-on broke demo playback support or does not let the game start. Even if you think you do not have a mod or add-on installed in the ‘main’ folder, check again.

A new feature in Seismovision v3.01 will make your life even easier. Seismovision 3 can then automatically temporarily disable non-standard iwd files before playing the demo and restore them afterwards. (An update is not yet available)
