Issues fixed[edit]

Out of memory error[edit]

You are probably low on disk space.

Works for single and multiplayer
Hit F11 while game launches, no download required[citation needed]

When you see the image of MW pop up after launching the game wait about 3 seconds and hit F11. Timing is different based on CPU speed so you can also just hit F11 over and over when the MW image pops up after launching the game.

Another possible fix[edit]

Should work for both singleplayer and multiplayer.
The fov fix for singleplayer doesn't seem to work with this fix, the game just doesn't start.
Players2 fix[6]
  1. Download Players2
  2. Place the "Player2" folder inside your game directory.
  3. Start the single or multiplayer(might have to start as administrator)
  4. When asked to run in safe mode select no, if asked to automatically detect settings select no, If any other yes/no questions select no.
  5. Now you can select your settings and play.

(As above or) "create2dtexture failed 887a0005" crash during Bog mission loading[edit]

Disable these setting:[7][8]

Shader Preload And alternatively: Sun shadow caching Spot shadow caching

In case of 20-30 FPS drops on 6GB GPUs, lower texture setting to high.

Mouse skipping/jerking/jumping[edit]

Mouse can skip/jerk/jump around suddenly (even with mouse acceleration off) causing large unintended turns.[9]
Lower mouse report/polling rate[10]

Lower the polling rate (reports per second) in the software for your mouse (such as Logtech Gaming Software or Razer Synapse) to a lower value; such as 125 or 250.
