Here's a brief walk through on how to set up custom maps on your server. The info is mostly compiled from several other posts that can be found on this site with a little editing by me. All the info is for COD4, but the procedure is exactly the same for World at War as well.
First off you have to run your custom map server as a modded server so that the clients can download your maps and files. Here's a brief tutorial on how to set up a modded server.
How to set up a modded server
1. Create a new folder in the COD4 'mods' folder (next to 'ModWarfare'). You can call it what you like. For illustration purposes, I will call mine 'demommod'. The entire path should look something like this:
This is your fs_game mods/folder. Remember to keep everything in lower case, as it avoids several quirks about the root path to fs_game.

With a little time up front, it fairly easy to set this up. The most reliable in the long run
is to make copies of you server.cfg. Say for instance you play ffa regularly but you want
to switch to a few maps of tdm with only one rcon command. This is assuming you are
running a stock server, some mods get a bit more complicated but the principle
is the same.
After spending some time at CODUtility I decided to bring some custom COD4 maps to a Lan Party my Uncle was having. I thought I would share my findings with the community.
First, I would like to give credit where credit is due. I searched about a dozen sites on the internet without finding anything very useful. The place that had the most complete information was Open Warfare. Specifically this post: Setting up a local redirect HTTP server for LAN.
When hosting a custom map you need to run a MOD. COD4 comes with MODWarfare and what I can tell from my research, it can be flaky. The good news, however, is that there are plenty of great mods out there to choose from. My initial testing was done with Demon MOD. I thought it was going to be a simple MOD that allowed perks/weapons to be changed in game. I was amazed at how many other configuration options it has. The next MOD I will be trying out is the Modern Paintball MOD. For COD4 the Mods go inside...

I was wandering please, if anyone could tell me how to make the helicopter less vulnerable to bullets from the guns as it seems to be shot down with just two bullets from our guns in our mod.We run the extreme_rc mod i run the server with someone else so what settings do i need to adjust in the helicopter settings.
Hi in enabling the sniper rifles to gain range when you shoot was not a problem, However we have seemed to lost the range display and headshot sound, as well as being able to destroy barrels. Now all our alterations were made via our mod in the weapons mp folder for each sniper rifle. What would i have to do to get back the damage on the rifles, so that all the things listed above will be reactivated, as well as maintaing the distance on our rifles.
I've been playing around with differant mods lately for our server. I downloaded the raw x4 files as well as the kill confirmed files. Pretty sure I've got it compile and run correctly because it defaults to FFA. I'm still not sure how to launch the mod gametype. I tried to set my gametype as "kc"?. anyone have an idea?

HI every one
I'm new in multiplying and I've got a problem .
I've downloaded 10 maps and I read a guide for loading news maps . This is what I do :
I open the game and create a server then I have to choose a mod like modwarfare (If I don't choose this mode or open_warfare2 , I can't load the maps ) and then press ` and it loads my map successfully but the problem is this .If I choose a mod , Other players in the lan network can't find me and If I don't choose a map , they can find me and If I dont choose a mod , I can't load any maps .
I want to know What is the problem ? How can loads maps that other players are manage to find me and we'll play in a map ?
Should I download a specific mod that it allows me to loads maps and the other players manage to find me ?
Hi all,i made my server and the last thing i have to do is hosting right?

3.Run the map with rcon tools - DONE
