Modern Warfare 3

Question by spikeyfish2: How to set up a server for Modern Warfare 2?
I just got modern warfare 2, and also have a server. I was wondering if it was possible (and how) to set up the web server so that it would host Modern Warfare 2 games.

I presume you mean on PC…

Therefore, it is my sad duty to inform you that Infinity Ward / Activision have decided that there is no need for Dedicated Server Support. They decided that since they are using Steam’s match making services to set-up P2P games, there is no need for Server Support, and this way no one ever needs worry about not having an even playing field…no more not being able to enter a server because it has a mod you don’t or play on a map you don’t have…why? Because you will gladly give your Credit Card to Steam to buy ALL the Map Packs and IW created mods!

Dream-on is my reply. The ability to have dedicated servers and fan created content was the best part of the CoD series! (In fact, the mod Eastern Front was actually better than the game it was modded from!)

Sorry…
