Call of Duty 1 + 2 + United Offensive

Note: If putting all 3 games onto one DVD then a Dual Layer (DVD9) disc is needed.

1) Create a Temp folder on your hardrive.
Name this folder: CoD_DVD. This will be the name (Label) of our DVD.

2) Download my menu from here and unzip with full directory structure.
NOTE: This way, you do not need to create any folders.
(Custom Install Menu created by Skeraxe.)

Call of Duty
3) Copy all the contents from CD1 to the CoD_DVD\CoD folder. Do NOT overwrite any files!
Copy all the contents from CD2 to the CoD_DVD\CoD folder. Do not overwrite any files.
Copy the Patch to CoD_DVD\Patches\CoD (make sure it is a single .exe file)
Copy the Crack to CoD_DVD\Cracks\CoD

Call of Duty – United Offensive
4) Copy all the contents from the CD1 to the CoD_DVD\CoDUO folder.
Copy all the contents from the CD2 to the CoD_DVD\CoDUO folder. Do not overwrite any files.
Copy the Patch to CoD_DVD\Patches\CoDUO (make sure it is a single .exe file)
Copy the Crack to CoD_DVD\Cracks\CoDUO

Download and Install “Orca”
Once Orca is installed, Right Click the file “CoD_DVD\CoDUO\Call of Duty – United Offensive.msi” and from near the top of the menu choose “Edit with Orca”. (You may have to edit the properties of this file and untick the “read only” attribute, but as it is copied to the hardrive it is probably already edited automatically).
When opened you will see 2 window panes, go to the “Tables” one on the left and scroll down to “Media”
Click on “Media” this will show you the entries in the Right pane.
Change all the entries in the “VolumeLabel” column to: CoD_DVD
Then “Save” it.

Call of Duty 2
5) Copy all the contents from the DVD to the CoD_DVD\CoD2 folder.
Copy the Patch to CoD_DVD\Patches\CoD2 (make sure it is a single .exe file)
Copy the Crack to CoD_DVD\Cracks\CoD2

Again using Orca, Right Click the file “CoD_DVD\CoD2\COD2.msi” and from near the top of the menu choose “Edit with Orca”. (You may have to edit the properties of this file and untick the “read only” attribute, but as it is copied to the hardrive it is probably already edited automatically).
When opened you will see 2 window panes, go to the “Tables” one on the left and scroll down to “Media”
Click on “Media” this will show you the entries in the Right pane.
Change all the entries in the “VolumeLabel” column to: CoD_DVD
Then “Save” it.

Serials
6) Using the Notepad, Open the Autorun.inf that came with the menu.
Replace both the XXXX-XXXX-XXXX-XXXX-XXXX with your original serial keys.
Call of Duty in CoDSerial
Call of Duty – United Offensive in CoDUOSerial
Call of Duty 2 in CoD2Serial

7) Burn the contents of the Temp folder to a DVD with the Label: CoD_DVD

INFO about the menu
The menu will look in the windows registry to see if the selected game is installed and will act accordingly.
If you do not have all the games, the menu will see what is on the DVD and show the menu.
This gives a 7 way Conversion:

* Call of Duty
* Call of Duty – United Offensive
* Call of Duty 2
* Call of Duty + Call of Duty – United Offensive
* Call of Duty + Call of Duty 2
* Call of Duty – United Offensive + Call of Duty 2
* Call of Duty + Call of Duty – United Offensive + Call of Duty 2

In Autorun.inf there is an extra option.
AutoAcceptKey. This will enable the menu to enter the serials automatically and press Return for you to move on.
Either you would not see the “Enter Serial Dialog” or it will just flash for a second.

It does not matter what you name the patch.
The menu will look inside the patches folder. If it finds 1 *.exe file, it will run it.

When you choose the crack option, the menu will look inside the cracks folder for a directory named after the game you choose in the menu.
It will look in the windows registry where you have installed the game and then copy the files to the games install folder.
The menu will first make a backup of the original files.

INFO about the CoD Installer
The setup looks identical to the original installer.
It will install the game properly with all registry settings intact.
The patch would not know the difference and will still work.
Probably will also work with Versions 1.0 and 1.3 (tested with v1.5)
Probably will also work with other languages but this will need testing first.
It can be used without the menu, for that conversion, look below.

What it has:
* Choosing where to install the game
* Choosing where you want the Startmenu Shortcut
* Choosing if you want a Desktop Shortcut

What it does not have:
* Pictures while copying the Game files
* Option to install DirectX
* Auto Serial injection (you will need the menu for this)
* Patch / Crack options (they are also in the menu)

Call of Duty: Single conversion
Note: Use the following conversion if you only want to put just the first Call of Duty on a DVD.

1) Create a Temp folder Called: CoD_DVD
2) Copy the entire contents of CD1 to the Temp folder
3) Copy the entire contents of CD2 to the Temp folder, don”t overwrite any files
4) Overwrite Setup.exe with my own Setup.exe
5) Overwrite the license.txt and MSR.txt files in the Docs folder with the ones supplied with my setup.
6) Create and copy extra folders for Patches/Cracks/Mods/Servers…
7) Burn to a disc labeled: CoD_DVD

    Thanks for the instructions!

    — Just a note for call of duty single conversion, step #5 should say ADD (not overwrite) license.txt and MSR.txt file as the originals are actually .rtf files, and the modified setup.exe appears to be looking for the .txt files to work successfully.
