very single Call of Duty game (and I guarantee you including Modern Warfare 3) runs on the Quake 3 engine.
wrong. they stopped using id tech since COD2. modern warfare is using proprietary engine.
Its bullshit (well kind off); it is a enhanced version of the Q3 tech they called a "new engine" (IW engine) for marketing purposes (however that might be unfair they KEEP layering new functionality in it, mainly based on rendering and texture streaming). It has lots of tech intigrated that does not originate from Id tech 3, but the basics of it still are found in tech3. Fire up any MW game - you will see ID tech listed in the credits.[now waiting for someone to send the wiki pedia article that supports that i am wrong, unfortunatly the article is not correct].
also anyone who knows anything about modding id tech games can simply open up the MW2 directory and see Id's hall marks all over the structure and format of the install.
BTW looks like the eikipedia article got updated sometime - now referances taht IW engine is based on id tech. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/IW_engineThis comment was edited on Jun 9, 2011, 08:15.
