Shows the amount of effort IW put into this game.

That's f*cking pathetic...

just posted this on another article but I believe it pertains to this one as well

"Browsing through the IW forums there's an individual who's taken up the task of bringing real dedicated servers to MW2. taking a look at some of the .exe code we get this.

"0071EB98: 'set systemlink 0; set splitscreen 0; set onlinegame 1; exec default_xboxlive.cfg',0
0070573C: 'menu_xboxlive_privatelobby',0 "

360 port confirmed.

From what I've gathered the dedicated server code is there. But disabled. He's already figured out how to add the dev console line and he's turned lean back on.

There is no MW2 dedicated server menus. So I'm guessing he will probably have to figure out how to implement cod4's menu's. Of course if it does work it will be a cracked .exe so that means. You'll have to connect to a dedicated server not hosted by GSP's. Unless some GSP's get ballzy.

this was found by a poster at xtremesystems. this is part of mw2 multiplayer .exe code.

The pc version has KB and mouse support + in game text chat so stop whining.

/sarcasm off

erathaol3292d ago

Well good luck to players on fixing MW2's broken online PC gaming experience.

AnttiApina3292d ago

Looks like IWNet wasn't the biggest effort put on PC version after all...

Why did they kick out Grant Collier? He was the MAN, who worked on every IW game until MW 2! This what happens!

Pandamobile3292d ago

Yeah, what happened to Grant? Was he snuffed by Activision for trying to make a good game?

seriously...
this is funny and sad at the same time.

Gitaroo3292d ago

funny, but still PC version is the best very of all of them.

Pandamobile3292d ago

Barely...

The only thing the PC version has over the console versions at this point is mouse and keyboard controls. God damn you, Infinity Ward.

LostCypher113292d ago

which if you remember from an interview was one of the defining features of the PC version, Along with text chat.

Captain Tuttle3292d ago

Did you break down and get it Panda?

evrfighter3292d ago

I have it :D

but I didn't pay for it.

big thanks to Skidrow :D.

qwertyuiopasdfghjkl3292d ago

Still seeding Skidrows copy.

Go internet!

Pandamobile3292d ago (Edited 3292d ago )

Hell no.

@skittle

Apparently some guy found code for system link and splitscreen in the PC version's source code.
