Warnings

The macOS (OS X) version of this game does not work on macOS Catalina (version 10.15) or later due to the removal of support for 32-bit-only apps.
GameSpy online services have been shut down (see Network for solutions).

Medal of Honor: Allied Assault is a singleplayer and multiplayer first-person action, FPS and shooter game in the Medal of Honor series.

Allied Assault was the first PC release of the Medal of Honor series. The game would receive two expansion packs, Spearhead in November 2002 and Breakthrough from September 2003. The War Chest edition which contains both expansions alongside the base game would be the default digital release.

On modern systems, the game may have issues with freezing on startup, settings not saving between sessions and poor screen scaling. Expansions are more prone to problems than the base game. Community multiplayer servers have also been set up to replace the deprecated GameSpy service.

    seta r_uselod 0            // Disable level of detail for entities
    seta r_roundimagesdown 0   // Better smoothing for unpure ratio textures
    

Notes

When r_subdivisions is 1 or 2, the game bugs out when the player is located in certain areas. Some Levels may also have incorect map geometry. Set r_subdivisions to a higher value such as 3 to get rid of this issue. In the in-game menu, the list go from "High" (r_subdivisions 3) to 'Lowest" r_subdivisions 20) in autoexec.cfg.
With seta r_roundimagesdown "0", textures that use an unpure power of 2 as a resolution ratio are rounded to the upper nearest power of 2 instead of the lower, meaning slightly better visuals on those textures. Some custom maps or modifications are however not compatible with this setting and may cause the game to crash without an error message, switch back to the default seta r_roundimagesdown "1" to solve this issue.
For the expansions, copy autoexec.cfg to <path-to-game>\mainta\custom.cfg for Spearhead, and <path-to-game>\maintt\custom.cfg for Breakthrough or add the lines to the existing custom.cfg in these locations.
These settings, with r_forceClampToEdge "1", can help with black lines in the main menu and skybox in-game.[7]

3D audio providers restoration

On Windows Vista and later, first restore legacy audio effects.
Retrieve missing 3D sound providers[10][11]
  1. Download HRTF for MoHAA.
  2. Extract the archive to a temporary folder.
  3. Move the contents of MOHAA to <path-to-game>.
  4. Move OpenAL to %APPDATA%.
  5. Open (create file if needed) <path-to-game>\main\newconfig.cfg in a text editor. For the game expansions, edit <path-to-game>\mainta\custom.cfg for Spearhead, <path-to-game>\maintt\custom.cfg for Breakthrough.
  6. Add seta s_milesdriver with one of the options below that is supported by the sound card. DirectSound3D Hardware Support with DSOAL for MoHAA is recommended, otherwise set to Creative Labs EAX 2 (TM) if using Creative ALchemy. For non-Creative cards, see here or use other wrappers.
      • Aureal A3D Interactive (TM)
      • Aureal A3D 2.0 (TM)
      • Creative Labs EAX 2 (TM)
      • Creative Labs EAX (TM)
      • Dolby Surround See here
      • DirectSound3D 7 Software with Full HRTF
      • DirectSound3D 7 Software with Light HRTF
      • DirectSound3D Hardware Support
      • DirectSound3D Software
      • Example: seta s_milesdriver "Creative Labs EAX 2 (TM)"
  7. Save the file.
  8. Make sure that Windows sound output is set to 44.1 kHz to avoid audio distortions. Refer to the instructions provided here, but use 44.1 kHz 24 bit instead.

Notes

Aureal A3D 2.0 (TM) may not work properly during gameplay. The problem can be related to card detection bug in binary.[12]
EAX 3 with Msseax3.m3d library from GTA Vice City works (also with its Mss32.dll), but spatialization quality is decreased in comparison to EAX 2. It can be obtained here (EAX 3 wasn't released in 2001 yet[13]).
To avoid crash on startup for Spearhead when using DSOAL with DirectSound3D Hardware Support, use an older version of DSOAL, attached in True 3D Sound for Headphones v1.1. Otherwise download this DSOAL package which contains audio settings and snddrivers for MoHAA.

GameSpy alternative

Replace master server lookup[citation needed]
  1. Download the MOH: Server Browser Fixer.
  2. Extract the package and open MOHGSFixer.exe.
  3. Select the <path-to-game> directory.
  4. Click Patch Detected Games.

Notes

Confirmed to work with GOG version of the game. Alternative is to connect directly via IP address by using GameTracker or to use the Query Launcher Utility.
The in-game server browser for the Origin version does not work; however, connecting to a server via direct connect or the Query Launcher Utility does.[citation needed]

Issues unresolved

Issues with minimizing

Alt+Tab can not be used while in-game. Alt+Ctrl+Delete works, but maximising may cause crash.
As a workaround, pressing Alt+ Enter will switch to windowed mode, which will allow using Alt+Tab .

Issues fixed

Game freezes on startup

There is a bug in the game where the device string provided by newer GPU drivers is longer than the game expects, likely causing a buffer overflow.
If using the OpenGL renderer, the game may throw the "GLW_StartOpenGL() - could not load OpenGL subsystem" error message.
Many GPU drivers have workarounds where they trim the string sent to MOHAA.exe, negating the problem.
However, this workaround was only put in for the base game, not its expansions.[14]
Replace the expansions' executables with patched versions[15]
Rename the expansions' executables[16]
  1. In <path-to-game>, rename MOHAA.exe to something else.
  2. Rename an expansion's executables (moh_spearhead.exe or moh_breakthrough.exe) to MOHAA.exe.
Use an OpenGL to DirectX translation layer
  1. Download the latest version of GLDirect from here.
  2. In the archive that was downloaded, go to gldirect5\bin\release\.
  3. Extract the DLL from this folder into <path-to-game>.
  4. Alternatively, an updated GLDirect that enables fog is available on GitHub.
  5. Download and copy opengl32.dll (and optional gldirect.ini) to <path-to-game>.

Notes

It can alter visual fidelity of original graphics.
If the game attempts to render at a higher resolution than supported, see Widescreen resolution to forcefully lower it
Use an older version of OpenGL's DLL[17]
  1. Find an older version of OpenGL.dll.
  2. Place it in <path-to-game>.
Disable in-game Origin overlay by forcing the 3dfxgl graphics driver[citation needed]
  1. Go to <path-to-game>.
  2. In the three folders named main, mainta and maintt, edit each autoexec.cfg with a text editor.
  3. In all three config files, insert the following line: seta r_gldriver "3dfxgl".

Notes

This possibly works since Origin fails to detect the 3dfxgl graphics driver, and as a result disables the in-game overlay.
Works for both expansions and the base game.

Graphics settings are lost each time when starting game

Start a mission and wait for the game to be saved[18][19]
  1. Launch the game.
  2. Select and apply the desired settings.
  3. Start any mission.
  4. Wait for the message "Game Saved" to appear.
Create appropriate configuration file

Copy the graphics settings from the <path-to-game>\main\configs\unnamedsoldier.cfg file to a created configuration file

Notes

Alternatively, set the maximum graphics settings.

Can not turn mouse more than 180° (or does not work properly)

Some mouse precision issues may be caused by the game's incompatibility with high-polling rates of modern gaming mice. The first fix is recommended.
See Improve Mouse responsiveness[citation needed]
Lower the mouse polling rate to 125 Hz (8ms) via mouse drivers[citation needed]

Poor screen scaling (DPI issues)

Change high DPI settings[20]
  1. Right-click the game executable in <path-to-game> and select Properties.
  2. Base game: MOHAA.exe
  3. Spearhead expansion: moh_spearhead.exe
  4. Breakpoint expansion: moh_breakthrough.exe
  5. Go to the Compatibility tab.
  6. Near the bottom of the window, select 'Change high DPI settings'.
  7. 'Override high DPI scaling behaviour' keep the default (Application) in the drop down list.
  8. If the 'Override high DPI scaling behaviour' option is greyed out, first press 'Change settings for all users' in the Compatibility tab in the previous window.

Unstable frame rate and stuttering

Change level of details
  • Set shadows to "Simple" cg_shadows "1" and curve details to "low" seta r_subdivisions "10" in advanced options.

Notes

This performance issue can occur with newer graphics cards supporting OpenGL 4.0 and newer. It is most common on Windows Vista and newer.
Fixes nearly all performance problems in Spearhead, when FPS might go down 8 FPS in the first level.
Does not help for Breakthrough. Curve detail setting can be lost on restart. Game can crash on settings save, sometimes can be fixed when you press default button, and make changes afterwards.

Enable Reshade/SweetFx

Instruction[21]
Install ReShade 3 or 4 as OpenGL. Works with the base game and both expansion packs. No in-game config changes are needed.
There is a bug when showing the OSD of MSI Afterburner overlay, which causes Reshade to stop working. Hide the OSD to restore Reshade.
Older Reshade 1.x/SweetFX 2.0 OpenGL injectors won't work automatically. To use them, install a OpenGL to DirectX wrapper such as GLDirect. Additionally, changes must be made to the game's configuration.

For Reshade 1.x/2.0, follow these steps:

  1. Download gldirect5
  2. Go to bin\release. Extract and rename gldirect5.dll to opengl32.dll
  3. Alternatively, an updated GLDirect that enables fog is available on GitHub.
  4. Copy the file to the <path-to-game>.
  5. Run ReShade's Setup.exe and set D3D9 Mode.

Alternatively:

  1. Open <path-to-game>\main\configs\unnamedsoldier.cfg
  2. Go to cvars section:
  3. Add the following line: seta r_gldriver "3dfxgl"
  4. Search for and download gldirect5
  5. Go to bin\release. Extract and rename gldirect5.dll to 3dfxgl.dll
  6. Copy the file <path-to-game>.
  7. Optional: Paste in "SweetFx preset file" into the MoH directory (found in link above).
  8. Run ReShade (1.0, 2.0) Setup.exe and set D3D9 Mode.
May introduce graphical distortions in the Main Menu of the Game. Install GLDirect DX8 as a fix (it also increases performance a little; however, it produces a darker image). Rename the d3d9.dll Reshade injector to d3d8.dll.
"Game Filter" via Nvidia Driver overlay may achieve similar results as SweetFx, however Reshade is better at implementing ambient occlusion and bloom effects.
