Get Call of Duty 4 to Play Better and Faster

The move away from CoD's WWII origins was met with much scepticism. Happily, fears proved unfounded, and the developers' efforts were rewarded with the best-selling game this Christmas, shifting half a million copies in December alone on various formats. Still, no one's perfect, and the devs should probably stay in their military issue flak jackets while PC Gamer ponder some of the more common technical issues you've had with the game.

I found disabling shadows and dynamic lights to be the biggest performance boosters.

For some reason, you take a big hit when enabling shadows even though they don't really, visually, make much of a difference.

I have a dual core AMD, 8800GTS 640meg video card, 2gigs of DDR2 800mhz RAM, and a SATA 3.o 160 gig HDD.

I can play the game with a resolution of 1680*1050 with EVERYTHING maxed without a hitch. Maybe the problem is peoples machines, not the game itself?

Don't have a 2-4 year old PC and expect great performance from any new game. It just does not happen.

uh... spouting off your computer numbers??

My point was that in order to run new games at high settings don't expect your old PC to run it maxed.

Oh yeah, and my other point is that my e-penis is MUCH larger than yours. GARGANTUAN! : )

But then you wouldn't be able to get online at all!!! Or have they finally fixed that?

And this is why Ive turned to console gaming.....I don't have to worry about upgrades every time a new game comes out. Ya, I sacrifice graphics but im cool with that :)

what was the point of your post?

lol... we all said wow, if it makes you feel any better.

How about this? I have a 4 year old Barton XP3000 with a X800 that i bios-hacked to 16pipes and i can play the game at 1280 x 1024 with everything set to high, and it actually runs pretty good and i'm always in the top 3 online and i can run shadows and everything... So, that's not saying a whole lot.

The game scales REALLY well!! Just a really good job of coding and deving. IW should be very proud...

BIOS hacking FTW!! I had an X800XL a while back too. (3 year ago?) Anyway, it was a good card.

I am surprised it runs that well on your pc. How much system RAM are you running in your rig?
