Sorry to hear about your difficulties, shazzam. Glad you figured out the mic fix. So simple yet we always forget to do it.

It is important that you move the whole COD4 folder to a location outside the Steam apps folder. Make a backup before doing so. Then you add the revised exe. Did you do that? There must be a way to get this working. Anyone else have any suggestions?

Yea I just literally copied the entire folder from steamapps into it's own folder then made a desktop shortcit tp "\iw3mp.exe" from inside the new folder. Kept the steam folder install as well as the backup. It's so great to be able to launch the game without needing steam.

If you're still on 1.8 then you either didn't follow the instructions fully, or will need to redownload CoD4 through Steam (WITHOUT connecting to any servers) and follow the instructions that Boards linked again.

As for Realtek, that's an old one. Glad you figured it out.
