  • Update your audio drivers (Google "[make of audio card] [model # of audio card] Drivers").

Users with Realtek(TM) onboard sound cards and Windows Vista will need to use Microsoft Audio Drivers 6.0, which can be found at MICROSOFT.

There are issues with running the MPD and using Sigmatel onboard sound cards. If you are experiencing this issue, and you are running the MPD from the primary partition, then you will need to install all Windows Vista updates, and the latest Sigmatel drivers from DELL.

Vista 64bits Errors

  • If you run Vista Ultimate 64Bits and have a Realtek Sound card (onboard) you might get this error on startup:

Gameplay Errors

G_SPAWN Entities Error

G spawn.png

  • What's causing it?
    • g_spawn error isnt related directly to the spawn system, its the number of entities in the map that are being spawned but not deleted (1024 is max for cod4) once it reaches the limit the server crashes.

The players spawning is only a small factor in this, any entities appearing in the map counts toward the limit (grenades, dogs, players...)

  • What to do to avoid this?
    • Dont run a server with more than 32 Slots
    • Try an use the following Server Config Dvars to delay Spawns:
set scr_koth_playerrespawndelay "0"
set scr_koth_waverespawndelay "0"
set koth_delayPlayer "0"
set koth_spawnDelay "30"
set koth_spawntime "0"
// CTF
set scr_ctf_playerrespawndelay "0"
set scr_ctf_waverespawndelay "15"
// DM
set scr_dm_playerrespawndelay "0"
set scr_dm_waverespawndelay "0"
// DOM
set scr_dom_playerrespawndelay "0"
set scr_dom_waverespawndelay "0"
// TDM
set scr_tdm_playerrespawndelay "0"
set scr_tdm_waverespawndelay "0"
// SD
set scr_sd_playerrespawndelay "0"
set scr_sd_waverespawndelay "0"
// SAB
set scr_sab_playerrespawndelay "7.5"
set scr_sab_waverespawndelay "0"
  • You can also try and reduce the number of dogs spawning; Default settings are:
// Dog Settings
set scr_dog_count "8"
set scr_dog_hardpoint_interval "180"
set scr_dog_health "100"
set scr_dog_max_at_once "4"
set scr_dog_time "60"

PunkBuster Errors

  • If you get an error from a Beta server and are kicked....

Pberror beta.png

Its because there are updates to PB that the server is running. You must update too.

==> Go to Evenbalance and get setup.exe for Call of Duty World at War

Information.png PBSetup is the easiest method of manually updating PunkBuster for most users (players and admins).

  • If when you run pbsetup.exe, you get an MD5 error.....

Go back to Evenbalance and download the two HTML Client files there:

PB Client v2.080 for Win32

Filename: wc002080.htm

PB ClientA v1403 for Win32

Filename: wa001403.htm

Information.png The above files are only needed if your PunkBuster doesn't update by itself. Right click the appropriate links above and choose "save as" to your "pb\htm" folder - make sure the file you save is saved with the filename shown above.

Then run pbsetup.exe and the MD5 error is fixed and you will be all set.
