There are some important issues with "Beyond the Call of Duty". Due to its age most modern PCs have multiple processors which makes the game unstable, also the Steam install fails to correctly setup the game making it unable to Load/Save.
To solve the Save/Load issue: edit Commando.cfg (found in the Output/ folder of the game in the Steam folder) with notepad and add the 3 lines below to the bottom of the file and save.
- .DEVELOP 1
When you load the game the Save/Load options should now be selectable and function during play-throughs.
LOCK UP ISSUEEdit
Try setting the affinity for the game to a single processor core, I found this solved the frequent crashes during loads and saves as well as loss of audio.
Set Affinty Fix
- ALT + Tab to return to desktop.
- CTRL+Shift+Esc to bring up Task Manager, click Processes tab.
- Right click coman_mp.exe and click Set Affinity, uncheck all except "CPU 0".
BtCoD Ultimate fix
The BtCoD Ultimate fix is a pair of community made file fixes that repair problems with maps and the speed issue for some.
rename the .EXE and .DIR files to .OEXE and .ODIR Copy over the replacement .exe and .dir file from BtCoD Ultimate fix. Doesn't solve 100% but saves are more stable (Quickload on death is still crashy). If the files fail to improve thing simply delete them and rename the .oexe and .odir back to their original names. Misc Fixes.
Some people have reported that the following also made their game more stable.
- Turn Game Speed in Preferences down to 1 point and turn off music.
- Using CTRL + S to save also appears to reduce possible crashes during saves.
Users have reported that the version supplied by GOG has these issues fixed however they charge more than Steam and beyond forum entries I have been unable to verify.
