Sorry, Links Dead AlterIWnet IW4M2 - CoD 6 - Modern Warfare 2 MP 1.1
MOVED TO THE GRAVEYARD.
AlterIWNet is DOWN!!! And I do not have a legit MW2 to port IW4M from the fourdeltaone forums by NTA.
If someone would lend me his steam account with MW2, I would try it.
Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 is a first-person shooter video game developed by Infinity Ward and published by for the Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3 video game consoles and the Microsoft Windows operating system. Officially announced on February 11, 2009, the game was released worldwide on November 10, 2009. It is the sixth installment of the Call of Duty series and the direct sequel to Call of Duty 4: Modern Warfare, continuing the same storyline, withCall of Duty: Modern Warfare 3 set to end the storyline. It was released in conjunction with two other Call of Duty games: Call of Duty: Modern Warfare: Mobilized for the Nintendo DS, andCall of Duty: Modern Warfare: Reflex, a port ofCall of Duty 4 adapted by Treyarch for the console. In addition, a comic book series based on one of the game's characters was also produced, entitled Modern Warfare 2: Ghost.
Modern Warfare 2 has received very positive reviews from various gaming websites, attaining a 94% aggregate score on, with praise stemming primarily from its in-depth multiplayer component. Within 24 hours of release, the game sold approximately 4.7 million copies in North American and the United Kingdom. On August 3, 2011, Activision confirmed that the game had sold over 22 million copies worldwide and it is the second best-selling game of all time in both the UK and the US.
First Working AlterIWNet Wrapper!
Well not really. This is not a port of the real AlterIWnet, but of their pre-release demo for IW4M2, which will replace the old IW4M1, known as AlterIWnet client. It is available to everyone, who has an account on the alteriw.net forums and works already as stable as IW4M1.
Some features are still missing, but some new features are also only available through the pre-release demo, like some new maps, ported from SinglePlayer Maps. Currently playable are Oilrig, BurgenTown and a "Surprise" map + all known maps on dedicated servers, which are really enough to find a good working one.
One disadvantage is that for example that alterIWnet's own Anti-Cheat System is not yet active in IW4M2, so you will may come across some cheater, if you are playing on a bad dedicated server or in the lobby system.
But you have to live with it or do not play at all. Because the normal IW4M1 uses .net and will never run in Wine or Cider. They did a great job on IW4M2, just hope it gets finished as soon as possible with all remaining features, so this becomes the "normal" alterIWnet.
One Side Note:
I announced this as a Cider Wrapper. But this download is a Wineskin Wrapper, because the Cider Wrapper is instable. Just run the game folder one time on something else then a cider wrapper and you break it forever. Like I did on my system. I can currently not get any Cider Wrapper to work again. rynotheking14 (thanks for hell a lot of testing and discovering a cider fix) will post a cider wrapper here, soon. He got it to run with my files, what now constantly crashes for me.
NOTE: We will not give much support to the Cider Version, when it is online, because it stops working out of no reason. The Wineskin Wrapper is more stable and nearly as fast.
1.1 Cider Wrapper released!
Runs great and very stable. Thanks to ryno. The Wineskin Wrapper was also updated and uploaded, because I still expect people to have problems with it.
tested Game Version: AlterIWnet Multiplayer Rip.
JUST USE THIS BUILD, IF YOU WANT SUPPORT. You find it at http://alteriw.net
Minimum System Requirements:
CPU: minimum Core 2 Duo CPU, with at least 2.0 GHz
RAM: 2 GB
GPU: nVidia 9400M or comparable AMD, Intel HD not tested, GMA will not run this
OS: Mac OS X Snow Leopard (10.6.8 recommend) or Lion
Space: around 8GB
- If you have low FPS the mouse starts stuttering in Wineskin, if somebody knows a wine patch for this tell me.
To have a much better experience turn on "Smooth Mouse" in the Controls and increase the Mouse Sensitivity there.
- It is hard to access the "out-game console" in full screen.
- The in-game console normally triggered with "~" does not work on some keyboard layouts (e.g. german layout)
1. Download the AlterIWnet Multiplayer Rip from their home page (you can try another copy, but remember, no support).
2. Right-click on the Wrapper, Select "Show Package Contents", go to Contents>Resources.
3. Extract the MP Rip, put all files in the "Call of Duty - Modern Warfare 2" directory in the Resources Folder. The files, not the folder!
So the iw4mp.exe lies directly in the "Call of Duty - Modern Warfare 2" folder. Otherwise it will not work!
4. Start the game. It will probably patch the game, wait it can take some time!
5. Log in with your alterIWnet Forum account.
(optional) 6. Close the game again and start it. Now do not log in, but click on Graphic Options to set your resolution.
You can connect to a dedicated server or a lobby from a friend directly using this client, if you know his ip-address.
If you want to play with a friend you can use Hamachi. Just do not login, but hit Connect To.. instead and type the correct IP.
Maybe following later: installing mods, launching GunGame, Sharpshooter or One in the Chamber in a lobby,
launching a lobby game with Oilrig, BurgerTown or Surprise, launching a dedicated server on Mac OS
Have fun with this. ^^
btw, if someone would host a "PortingTeam" Server to play for us all, it would be very nice. Just pm me and I will add a direct connection link to the launcher.
