Did you also install the newest Guest Additions and enabled 3D acceleration in the machine settings? I was able to start Call of Duty, but there were some glitches with the ingame graphics though.

comment:2 by Technologov, 16 years ago

Yes, I have 3D acceleration, and other tests and games work fine.

Hard to say for Call of Duty which extension does it miss unless you have it sources. Another way is to report all possible extension strings to make it crash and then remove extension one by one untill it starts to fail with the error you've got.

Moving to enchanments, as this missing extension is part of opengl spec >1.5.

A bit of a shot in the dark but: IIRC Call of Duty 1 uses DXT-compressed textures; the *S3TC extensions needed for that are missing from the extension list in the logs.

Submitter: you should first try running CoD on your host machine (use Wine under Linux) - this should indicate whether your graphics chip/driver is capable of running CoD at all, since the virtual machine at most only inherits these capabilities.

This bug is still valid with VirtualBox 3.0.

Unfortunately not fixed.

This bug is still valid with VirtualBox 3.0.6 -- I have reinstalled both VBox and Guest Additions.

Both Call of Duty 1 and 2 fails.

comment:9 by Leonid Lobachev, 15 years ago

Wait for 3.1.

comment:10 by Technologov, 15 years ago

Call of Duty 1 works now !

Host: Windows 7, x64, Core 2 Q6600, ATI Radeon HD 3850, VBox 3.1.0-BETA2.

Thanks a lot !

You can close this one.
