Coh validating media please wait
Now, some steps might not matter, but I'm gonna note'em all, just in case.
I got an external hardrive now and it seems when installing games on it they run way much smoother.Sign Up for free (or Log In if you already have an account) to be able to post messages, change how messages are displayed, and view media in posts.I reinstalled the game recently and have been playing for 2 or 3 days then all of a sudden when i turn it on it says "insert game disc"Well it's already in there, hasent been taken out since installation so i just take it out for a few seconds, make sure it's clean and then pop it back in.If the game still does't work, you may try to upgrade or downgrade the version of your Hamachi to 22.214.171.124, which has been reported by users to be fully compatible with the game. Link to download 126.96.36.199: Just install it, no need to uninstall the "new" one, it will ask to "update" your existing version (tested downgrading from 188.8.131.52) Create/Join LAN games normally, once connected It is important to use a complete original fully patched game. Multiplayer Internetcannot work with cracked games but lan can: If you wish to use LAN with a cracked game you will need: - Daemon Tools Lite (See link below) - A DVD Mini Image (See link below) - Y. If not, re-install the game to restore the original files in the correct locations. Follow these steps to get started: 1) Run Daemon Tools Lite 2) Mount the mini image you had downloaded (Depending on which version you have; Normal or Opposing Fronts) 3) Run YASU - It will first ask for your disk, click OK.
B) Edit HOSTS file: This is found at WINDOWS\system32\drivers\etc - Open the "hosts" file with notepad. After the last line press ENTER to get to a new line - Add 127.0.0.1 cohlive-1.quazal.net, press ENTER - Add 127.0.0.1 cohlive.- Close and Save C) Download and install Daemon Tools Lite -  D) Download Mini Image - Same site. It will then freeze while it displays: "Validating Media".
Normally the game will automatically sign me in so I can play online games straight away, and not ask for disc confirmation.
