COD4 opening Console (~) question

post #1 of 12
Thread Starter 
OK, right now I only play SP. I read about changing the FOV to 80 by opening the console. Is this for MP only? I tried it in SP and I cant get the console to open. Not sure whats going on here.

Also, i read about people saying the games too short and one guy beat it in less than three hours. Are you guys playing on easy level or something? I am playing the hardest level and its kicking my tail at times. I got the game this past saturday (6 days ago) and although I dont play all the time (1-2 hrs a day at most) I just no am starting ACT II. I dont see how anyone beat this in three hours unless they played it on easy or novice level.

Sorry for the side post, main question is about the Console issue.

You have to enable console from the options menu. I'm at work right now so I couldn't tell you where it's at but I know it's in options.

Ok not to flame or anything but i'm pretty sure the OP only wanted to know how to get console to open, not for everyone to tell him how quick they beat single player mode. Hence the....

On Normal, I beat the game in 7 Hours. Easy was 3. Vets, well... I haven't beaten it yet.

There's really no advantage to increasing FOV that I've seen. Someone dispute me.

I beat expert in about 6 hours, but that's not including the epilogue. That thing is impossible.

OK cool, will look for console option under OPTIONS. What is this epilogue thing your talking about? Also, i dont mind people talking about the length it took them. I am playing Veteran i think (whichever is the hardest) and man, to me it is tough. But then again, I suck, haha.

I am amazed at the graphics in this thing. I only have DX9 too. I wonder how much better it looks in DX10.
