Cod4x - Error 817

Recommended Posts

Without Cod4x installed, I am able to join and play on servers that do not require Cod4x installed.

 

I have Cod4x installed correctly, as far as I am aware.

I load up the game. Go to join any server, whether it requires Cod4x or not.

 

Then this happens... https://prntscr.com/hzbtuu

 

I do not know why. I have never found a solution & I have been looking for the past year.

No results on Google. No results when I had a quick look on here.

Nothing...

 

Can any of you help?

Did you installed all the required patches correct? Cod4x requires 1.7 base patched game, otherwise strange tings can happen.

I have Cod4 through Steam, so all patches should be automatic upon installation of the game?

I used to have Cod4x running fine about a year ago, but then out of the blue it kept giving me this error, and I have no idea why...

You must install patch 1.6, 1.7 and cod4x 1.8

Even though Cod4 is from Steam and not the disc copy of the game?

If you got it from steam then 1.7 should be installed by default. In which case you just need to connect to a 1.8 server and install the patch

That's the thing, I can't connect to any server with the current Cod4x installed.

Any update on this issue? I don't believe that there is zero fix for Error 817.

I've clean installed COD4 5 times now...

Why does it only affect some people, what is causing it?

If you got the game from steam, you actually need to downgrade cod4 to 1.7, then install cod4x.

And the reason, H4cktivision tried to kill the game, and pushed an update what is 1.8 client version as well.

And of course that is not compatible with the cod4x servers and clients.
