The call of duty disk works fine, but when i go to play multiplayer and click: Find Game, the downloading game settings menu pops up. The words DOWNLOADING GAME SETTINGS have always appeared before i joined a match, but usually go away shortly. Now, they stay on the screen indefinitely. I have left the console on that screen for 2+ hours, and it will stay the same. Why is this hapening? Can I fix this?
CoD4 MP is still very much alive. I posted this earlier in a similar thread:
"No, it's still up and running. I was, and am still, having this problem intermittently. It started happening after I switched to a newer router model.
I had read that you can fix the "downloading game settings" by either resetting your router (unplugging the power for a few seconds) or setting a static IP and forwarding the proper ports in your router settings. None of those worked for me as I had already forwarded all necessary ports and reset the router prior to searching for a solution.
What did work, however, after many hours of fiddling with settings, was to go into my PS3's network settings and select the "easy" internet connection setting. Everything loaded properly after I did that. I have to redo it every couple of days, though.
Best of luck."
Well, i was on it like a week ago and it was letting me play online but TDM is probably the only game type that was still active all the other game types either could never find people or I would get an error when serching for games.
Back when cod4 was the bomb whenever I got the " downloading game settings " screen I had to unplug the modem and router while that message was on screen. Then it went away once I got back online. I haven't played cod4 in years. Good game back in the day..
That exactly happened to me but i just bought the game and after going on to find game it still won't load someone please help
Exit and keep retrying. There really is no workaround for this.
