you cannot test Code posts on pc.
Test on either a jtag or by hotswaping.

Then how would I go about testing the mods on PC first? They never seem to work...

you can test patches on computer but need all the updates from 1.1 to 1.7 then you need to open Run then type %appdata% then go to local Activision CodWAW then make a folder called Mods then inside you create another folder which is the name of your mods then inside that create a maps folder. now you need to open ff viewer then open the patch you want to test (NOTE: all patches usually require different gsc's in the maps folder.) now on the left youll see stuff like art.gsc now you wanna export certain files- for the phoenix v2 patch i had to export \/ \/ \/

_cheats.gsc
_createdynents.gsc
_art.gsc
_hud_message.gsc
_debug.gsc

now you want to right click these files in ff viewer then click export then save to desktop.

next cut all the files you exported into the maps folder inside your mods folder so it would go like this Codwaw/Mods/NAMEOFPATCH/maps/heres where you paste the files

now once all the files have been pasted go back into the folder where it says maps then you need winRAR to do this next part , you right click the maps folder then click add to archive now there will be two options on left saying RAR or ZIP now click zip and in that text field where it should say maps.zip change zip to iwd and the maps to the name of the mods e.g mine was phoenix v2 so i renamed it to phoenix v2 now, inside that iwd will be the maps folder.
now load up the game select the mods option and inside should be the newly created mod click that then selcect load. Now when it loads open a game of Nazi zombies and see if it worked


REMEMBER all mods usually require different gsc's inside the maps folder, if your getting a unknown function or bad syntax its because you dont have the right files in maps. to find out the right files post a topic here or ask the author.



TROUBLESHOOTING


When i click mods theres nothing there ? you dont have the latest 1.7 update

im getting a unknown fucntion or bad syntax ? you havent got the correct gsc's in the maps folder

theres nothing there when i click mods ? you have not renamed the iwd to the name of mods ( folder that its in )

the order of the files are not correct e.g it should be codwaw/mods/nameofmod(e.g test)/nameofmod(e.g test).iwd

you have put the gsc's inside the iwd and not in the maps folder inside the iwd

run the game as admin



IF you cant get it to work add me on AIM or windows messenger : [email protected] , i will help through team viewer ( i will not be able to help you between 8:00-3:15 United kingdom timezone as i have school on weekdays



YOU CANNOT TEST THE CODE_POST_GFX ON PC, YOU MUST HAVE A JTAG AS THIS FILE IS FOR XBOX ONLY
