OK, you're right. the VC redistributable should have helped, but somehow it didn't. Instead, I linked everything statically now. I have tested it on a computer without Visual C++. The old patcher didn't work, but this one does. Hope it works for everyone.

Here's a new version of the viewing distance patch made specifically for the DOS version of MW2:31stCC. It uses PRJPP to set the preferred viewing distances for each mission. The viewing distance is set so that it is maximized without glitches or spoiling surprises, even if we know all of them by now.

I downloaded it. :)

Have you considered making a gravity patcher similar to this? Or maybe an eject-enabled/disabled PLT1 patcher?

One other thing, I feel inclined to compiment you on your batch file work alone... they're so very intricate and unique... mine are just like cookie cutters. :roll:

It keeps saying
Could not open file
I'm running windows 7 32bit. I tried running as administrator, and from an administrator cmd, and setting compatibility level to XP SP2 and XP SP3

Try running this script on the files in question

Still doesn't work. Can someone try running this on the latest build of the NetMech installer?
