Help with Call of Duty 4 singple player, multi player works fine?

So I dl'ed and mounted/installed everything fine. I went to multiplayer first, it works great. TYhen i go to single playe rand get this.

*EDIT- this is just a hunch but the iw3sp crack file that I replaced with the original, which is the singple player loader might have cause this?? I dunno, because multiplayer works just fine. Its just the singple player that crashed after the start up videos. I think it found it... in the zone folder a file called common.ff might be the problem?? I really don't wanna reinstall everything. SOMEONE PLZ HELP

I'm getting the same thing. Reinstalling will temporarily fix the problem, but it will occur again on a later stage. I'm waiting for a reply from Activision and I've posted this on the infinity ward forums and no one seems to know the cause or solution. For now, I'd say jump to a console version of the game and wait for a PC fix.

When I go to multiplayer online and try to find game it gives me a message that says "downloading game settings..." and this stays on and does not allow me to get to the online game. Please help thank you

most games have forums for these types of things on their official sites...every game has issues...for example theres a update problem in uncharted 2 where if u get a bad connection or something during update then u have to delete EVERYTHING in ur game data utility having to do with ur game...then redownload and install it all.

I just bought CoD Mw2, the installation went without any problems, but whenever I try to start the game; I get to the start menu and then the screen freezes, this happens to both single- and multiplayer....

Yes. This happens everytime. Here's a secret/glitch/whatever: when it starts, dont click anything. wait for the game to load up to the main menu. For example in Single player: just leave the keyboard/mouse. wait for all the short clips to play. after you get to the main menu (Spec Ops; Campaign; Multiplayer)Use your arrow keys to choose which. For example: I want spec ops. I just hit the left arrow key once. It might still freeze, but after awhile, it will be highlighted/selected/whatever. hit enter. then wait for it to load. then keep repeating these steps on what level/difficulty. then after you play a game, everything will go back to normal unless you quit again. That's all. Plz rate me.

You might have Parental Controls setup on your account. Change the settings using the master account. Also, make sure you have the latest patch installed for the game. The earlier versions of GTA have bugs with accessing multiplayer.
