Default COD 1.4 Patch and MP Profile

Is there a way to update COD 4 and not lose my MP rank in the profile? Im tired of building up my rank everytime there is an update. If I have to then I will do it, but there has to be a way. Any ideas? thanks

Yea I kinda wondered the same thing. Lost my rank twice now. Once to format, once to patch. Was on a server last night and a bunch of people were talking about a rank editor thats out. Kinda sounded like cheating to me, get rank 55 without earning it..

Going to drop Infinity Ward a line, see what they say.

Never lost my rank with a patch. But just backup the mpdata file before patching from now on.

It is located:

C:\Program Files\Activision\Call of Duty 4 - Modern Warfare\players\profiles\your name

Same here. I keep a backup of that file anyway but I've never had problems patching any computers.

The MPdata file that stores your profile is located in C:\Program Files\activision\Call of Duty 4 Modern Warfare\players\profiles\*your profile name*\ You can even backup the whole profile (Make a copy of the folder with your username) that way you don't lose your settings and SP gamesaves.

Not to mention all those players with bots that run all day and gain XP. I am gonna back up that mp file this time and hope.

That didn't work with me whenever I'd format/reinstall. I should be the lowest SSgt. by now.

I really hate how they added more ranks to the real, initial chain. I mean, 3 Corporals?

Are you using the same key *Hint Hint* cause it does check that and if it's not the same one the profile won't go to another machine. I move my profiles back and forth between two computers just fine.

Another thing to check to is sometimes it might mark your mpdata as corrupt. I've read where it will rename mpdata to mpdata.corrupt even though the profile is good (bug). If you remove the .corrupt it might work again.

If your using windows vista with UAC on you will find your profile in the hidden folder Appdata.

c:/users/yourname/appdata/local/virtualstore/programfiles/activision/callofduty4/players/profile

Remember to show hidden folders before you go looking

My copy is legit, I got it for my birthday. I never register my games though, in case I end up selling them.

UAC? I forgot what that stands for. I've been switching between XP and Vista that I forget what stands for what now.
