INFINITY WARD FORUM DOWN - Modern Warfare 2 support ?

Last evening the official IW Modern Warfare 2 Forum went down. It's almost 24 hours now.....


It happened short after the release of the Modern Warfare 2 - Update Patch 1.0.180 by Steam.


Update : The IW forum was down from Fri Jan 22, 2010 3:35 pm till Mon Jan 25, 2010 12:15 am.

Modern Warfare 2 - Update Patch 1.0.180

CoD Modern Warfare 2

Infinity Ward claims it is a fix for infinite care package exploit on PC.

But it is a "hardly ever seen by players" exploit...


The updates will be applied automatically when your Steam client is restarted.

Modern Warfare 2 crashes when host goes to second map

CoD Modern Warfare 2

Some extra attention for the nr. one of all MW2 MP Errors in these last couple of days.

And again a fix from the PC community. Not a word about this error from Infinity Ward, Steam or Valve.

42. Modern Warfare 2 crashes, when I am host, on the second map.

Seems the "second map host crash" comes from STEAM. (!)

You have to download the Steam BETA Client.

You can do this in the Steam Account Settings.

Steam settings >> Account >> Beta Participation >> Change it to ON

and restart Steam.

This fixes the crashing if you are the host. The current MW2 Disconnects and Time outs are both result of same error. Because most hosting players don't know about the above fix (yet).

PC Tools Firewall Plus™ 6 for Windows®

CoD Modern Warfare 2

PC Tools Firewall Plus™ 7 for Windows®

PC Tools Firewall Plus is an easy-to-use personal firewall for Windows® that helps protect your privacy by preventing unauthorized users from gaining access to your computer through a network or the Internet.


You may need this for :

34. Modern Warfare 2 menu and in-game freezes and lag-spikes

The 'Cooperdale' fix :

(Win 7) 

When you first start the game the firewall will ask if you want to allow it to access your network.

If you answer yes, this should create two rules in the advanced section of the firewall control panel.

One rule is for udp, the other for tcp.

  1. If you block both but have upnp enabled on the router, you'll have nat strict.
  2. If you enable udp, you'll have nat open.

There is no need to enable tcp, and if you do you'll get the freezes and lag spikes.

So tcp incoming needs to be blocked with your firewall, whichever it may be.

With this firewall/router configuration you get no port scanning, ergo no freezes, with an acceptable degree of security.

And block all the TCP ports for Sp And Mp

So what you need to do is :

2. Don't Block UDP Ports.

Modern Warfare 2 - Are Hackers Gonna be Dealt With ?

CoD Modern Warfare 2

by Vrandas

Many buyers/players of the PC version of Modern Warfare 2 have this 1 question :

Can Infinity Ward stop those Hackers ruining the Modern Warfare 2 game ?

Personally I would say : "They can't ."  The last two MW2 update patches made this very clear.


Infinity Ward made a wrong decision. With Punkbuster and dedicated servers we would have had hack-free servers today.

They underestimated the benefit of having server-admins. Plus the fact that the PC community made own anti-cheat server scripts in the past CoD years.

Say IW has 10 people working on the security problem at IW HQ.

Those ten are outnumbered by hundreds of smart brains on (now) the other side......

It is a lose-lose situation.
