those industrious scene groups have produced a working online version of MW2 complete with a re-enabled dev console. Not bad for under a weeks work eh?
There are a few cracks around, some that let you install without steam being required for a working single player and some other multiplayer cracks have just surfaced that allow you to play online on special ops missions and through Steam & IWnet.
There are even reports of dedicated servers. I have read that they have a few boxes up and running with dedicated servers running on them.
my face before I found out o_o
my face when I found out o_o
my face after I found out o_o (Please note my complete lack of surprise.)
I have purposely not revealed the names of the groups that have produced these cracks and work-arounds as any piracy of this game only feeds the monster. IW will view each and every torrent as a lost sale.
The only way to make IW see any error of their ways would be to let this game slip into obscurity as quickly as possible.
Add to this the proliferation of hacks and cheats abound within WM2 multiplayer and you end up with the 'Jack Sparrows' playing along side the paying customers and Jack doesn't care if he does get banned as all it takes is a valid email address and you can sign right back up with Steam and jump back on IW net.
GG WM2, see you in the bargain bin soon.
