CoD 1 and UO Menu Text not Working on Windows 7 64-bit

Hey everyone,

I recently installed Call of Duty 1 and United Offensive on my PC for some old-school fun. The installation went perfectly. However, when I run the game no text shows up in the menus or anywhere! This is the same case in both games in both SP and MP. I tried running it as an Admin with compatibility for XP SP3, but to no avail. Any idea on how to get it working?

    You might double check the supported resolutions and make sure you are running in one of those. Sometimes running older games like that in higher than or non-supported resolutions does wonky things with the text. I am trying to remember but I am thinking CoD one only supported 4:3 aspect ratios but maybe my memory is faulty.
  2. I tried running it in safe mode and at 640x480, still no dice :(
