Call of Duty 4 Texture Problem

Been playing call of duty 4 for a bit now and have just unlocked one of the infamous gold weapons...

I just got the gold desert eagle but its looks rubbish! Ive seen videos on youtube showing gold weapons, and they shine! but mines a horrible dull yellow colour... Im on the latest ATi drivers and all setting are maxed at 1680x1050.

Looksie...

About 1:30, the dessert Eagle is really shiney... just like the AK47

YouTube - Call of Duty 4 - Golden Ak47 Unlocked

then compare... heres what mine looks like

That's wierd. It looks like the person in the video is running HDR or similar, do you have that enabled?

Yea, that looks odd, but your detail and image quality other than the gun looks top notch.

Just bought COD4 for PS3 the other day, since i thought COD3 was fairly good. This new one though is absolutely brilliant. The part where you're flying the AC-130 Spectre, and shooting ground targets with the thermal imager, was just awesome. Brings up interesting questions too, like "If there's a tank I need to destroy... 25mm, 40mm, or 105mm Howitzer?" In which case the answer of course is the 105mm Howitzer.

Then... "If there's a slightly injured man, standing still, in the middle of a road, not moving anywhere.... Do I use 25mm, 40mm, or 105mm Howitzer?" In which case the answer of course is STILL to use the 105mm Howitzer.

If I had to kill an ant on a child's sandwich... I'd STILL use the 105mm Howitzer. Which raises the question, why the hell bother putting a 25mm vulcan cannon or 40mm gun on the AC-130, when all you /really/ need is more 105mm Howitzers.

Choosing a lesser gun is like saying "No, I'll use the Volkswagen Jetta instead of the Audi RS6 since it will do the job, and be cheaper."

Screw that.

There is no problem on the face of this fine earth, that cannot be solved with a 105mm Howitzer.

Managed to sort it, the COD4 forums suggested forcing "Specular Maps" and this was the result!

GOLD!!!!!!!!

Great game by the way! Multiplay is top notch and the was a sniping mission in single player called "All gillied up" which was awesome... dont wanna talk about it as it might ruin the game for someone.

I think you'll find a video setting in the game called Specular Maps. Set that to "yes".

Hi everybody, i have just unlocked the golden AK and i also have the gold

Desert Eagle but none of them looks shiny like some of the videos posted

here and on youtube.Instead they are like rusty or bronze like.

I´m running COD 4 on an Intel P4 3.06Ghz, 2gb ram, radeon x850xt

platinum and have the latest drivers.

I´ve tried enabling specular map like suggested here before but it didn´t

work for me. I´ve tried changing all options to extra in the game menu,

the game still runs fine but it still doesn´t change my weapons to gold.

Any ideas?

It may be a Shader Model 3 effect, in which case, the X850 is unable to render them.
