In order to play the multiplayer version of "Call of Duty 4" online, you must find a multiplayer server compatible with the version of the game you are running. If you are having difficulty finding multiplayer servers compatible with the 1.7 patch version of "Call of Duty 4," one solution is to downgrade your version of the game to the more popular 1.6 patch version. In order to downgrade the version of "Call of Duty 4" you are playing, you must remove then reinstall "Call of Duty 4" to your computer's hard drive.
Things You'll Need
- "Call of Duty 4" installation disk
Click the "Start" menu button on your desktop, then click the "Control Panel" shortcut on the right-hand side of the pop-up menu.
Double-click the "Add or Remove Program" shortcut located within the "Control Panel" window. This will cause the "Add or Remove Program" utility to launch.
Click on "Call of Duty 4" in the "Currently Installed Programs" box, then click "Remove." Follow all onscreen prompts to remove the program from your hard drive.
Insert the "Call of Duty 4" installation disk into the disk drive. This will cause the autoplay command prompt to launch.
Click "Install" on the pop-up command prompt. Follow all onscreen prompts to reinstall "Call of Duty 4" without the 1.7 patch on your computer.
Tips & Warnings
- Once you have reinstalled "Call of Duty 4" onto your computer, it is recommended to download and install the 1.6 patch because most multiplayer servers make use of this version. See "resources" for the 1.6 patch download page.
- You can connect only to multiplayer servers that are running the same version of "Call of Duty 4" as you.
