AlterIWNet MW2 Now Available for Mac!

Featured Port: Front Page Spotlight
AlterIWNet - Modern Warfare 2

Posted Image

The AlterIWNet Mac Port is the product of dozens, maybe hundreds of hours of hard work put forth by Porting Team team member Drakulix. He's been in close contact with the developers of alterIWNet and had persuaded them to implement certain functions in order to have a working wrapper for Mac port enthusiasts. Without his hard work this project would never have come to light which is why we here at the Porting Team believe that this phenomenal port deserves to be spotlighted.

Thanks for all the hours of hard work put forth in the creation and development of the Mac AlterIWNet port.

Port Database Entry: AlterIWNet - Modern Warfare 2
Porter(s): Drakulix & rynotheking14

Another upcoming wrapper will soon be released by rynotheking14. His wrapper (which utilizes a large portin of Drakulix's work) will be Cider based. Although performance is slightly better, there are other issues that impede a green rating on it. Best of luck to ryno, here's hoping he can get it running smoothly!

Now for some info on AlterIWNet - http://alteriw.net/

alterIWnet is a modification for the popular game Modern Warfare 2, allowing you to play the game as it was meant to be played - with dedicated servers and various other additional features.

alterIWnet features
Dedicated servers
Play Modern Warfare 2 with fully-customizable dedicated servers, allowing lag-free gameplay and administration to get rid of cheaters. Don't like dedicated servers, don't worry - the classic matchmaking is available as well.

Another typical feature of PC games that was severely lacking in the original Modern Warfare 2, alterIWnet allows you to play with various modifications and new game modes, including Black Ops' player-favorite Gun Game, Sharpshooter and One in the Chamber game modes, as well as fan-made sniper-only or Old School game modes.

Developer console
Don't you just hate it when your game decides to not work, or do you love spending hours tweaking every last bit of your game, and were you annoyed at the lack of a developer console in MW2 - no need to worry, alterIWnet includes a separate developer console without restrictions*, with a fully-functional in-game console planned for future releases.

*) except during hosting of matchmaking sessions, and cheat protection of variables

Maintained anticheat
alterIWnet also features a continuously-maintained anti-cheat system which pretty much automatically prevents cheating from ever occurring, to ensure undisturbed gaming pleasure.

Custom content
alterIWnet includes the ability to have somewhat-custom content, including ported versions of singleplayer levels to completely new multiplayer levels*, custom weaponry**, sounds and skins for weapons/other textures.

*) planned feature for future releases, a limited demo is available
**) unconfirmed feature based on theoretical disassembly of code


Great work Drakulix, nice to see this port finally happen!
This is record breaking, THE BEST/ONLY PORTED Mw2 MOD EVER!
AWESOME, used to play alot of alteriw on my old pc but then got a mac and stopped, thanks and good workk!!!!
downloading the AlteriWnet thing now. Will finish in a couple of hours and then, i will patch up and see how it is. Hopefully there is no lag in gameplay and it runs smoothly. My computer matches more than the required specs mentioned except for the graphics card. But then i will have to set it to low detail and graphics in the gameplay options. Anyway, hope this doesn't disappoint... :D
