1.2.3 – FPS booster!

The major new feature in the latest update will interest anyone who has performance issues with their version of Call of Duty 4:Modern Warfare for Mac. Our latest release includes a 2 step FPS booster, controlled by a console command (see readme included with download).

Preliminary tests involving the recording and playback of a gameplay demo showed the following results:

The demo file created and used for these benchmark tests can be downloaded here: demo0000.dm_1.zip In order to use and test the above file on your own system, unzip and place it within your demos folder:

“Call of Duty 4 Data/main/demos”

Launch the game console, and type:

“timedemo demo0000.dm_1”

The game will play the demo with your current graphics settings, and the test results will be visible in the expanded console (toggle using “shift + tilde”) once the timedemo has completed.

The first step of the frames per second (FPS) booster disables all lighting effects, including shadows; while the second step disables all other special effects including smoke, clouds, and flames. In the video shown above, the FPS Booster was toggled using a key bind registered before the start of the video. Instructions on setting a similar key bind are included with the download.

Some users may have a maximum framerate cap of 85 FPS set by their game by default, this can be lifted using the “Advanced” settings tab of The Advantage Tool, or using the console command “com_maxfps 0”.

Members who previously used the fullbright command will have to make use of the FPS booster set to 1 as it now controls fullbright. The above tests were done on a 13″ MacBook with several background processes running, test results may vary.

The Advantage Tool 1.2.2 – Improvements

Today build 1.2.2 of The Advantage Tool has been released. A full change log is included with the download available via the members page. In this vital update, several sections of the tool have been addressed.

Several people have had issues with the version system used by the Mac version of Call of Duty, resulting in difficulties when attempting to set up the tool for the first time. In the previous release, the first implementation of our Automatic Version Detection System has been put to test with the beta feature.

Due to the success of this new system, it is now used as part of the self-initialisation sequence used by the tool once the game has been detected. Version selection still needs to be done manually by the user for now, but the tool will try to detect the game version where possible, and show a little hint as guidance:


In other news, on some servers the old commands used by the tool, such Continue reading The Advantage Tool 1.2.2 – Improvements
