Usefull info

I have played a lot of things for Call of Duty and most of them didn't show well written objective but just something like OBJ_01, which can be confusing to solve if it's not explicitly described what to do next. I Suppose it was due to the fact of using custom map made using another version of Call Of Duty (retail version) that didn' have the same language instalment. According this problem, Steve Acaster (Yorshire rifles), send me a reply explaining how to make the objectives fully visible in game so if you encounter several problem with the onscreen message due to another language installation program here is what to do.

1 under COD/main folder or uo folder (if its a map for uo), create a subfolder called localizedstrings in which you create another folder called French, English, German, or else looking to the language you are using through the game.

2 Open the pk3 map file with a compressing tool (Winzip, Winrar, 7-zip,...) and you will see all the associated file include just point out on the mapname.str file

3 Copy/Paste the str file into the localizedstrings/language folder you have created

4 Start the map bring down the console and all objective will appears like they should but in the language they where created, so if a map was created in german, french or anyother language it will appears in it's original developping language.

Feel free to contact me for any questions.
