    Ok guys so the bar pings are crap they don't really give you any indication of how much ping you're actually getting.

    I've created a quick mod to even out the bars and how much ping they represent.

    Heres a guide on how much ping my bars display.

    6.Bars 0-50ms
    5.Bars 50-100ms
    4.Bars 100-150ms
    3.Bars 150-200ms
    2.Bars 200-250ms
    1.Bar 250-300ms

    So heres a file to copy over the the original config_mp file located "program files\steam\steamapps\common\call of duty modern warfare 2\players"

    Download
    Here
    Mirror

    Tell me what you think feedback would be appreciated.

    Thanks Kylzer

    is this safe? I would hate to modify the files, which are against the EULA. Legally, your license can be banned for this just as if you were hacking, and all it takes is a simple file check.

    That being said, this is a great addition, but I will wait until it has been tested for atleast a month.

    You, sir, deserve a thanks.

    Any idea what the original bars were?

    I think they were 0-100, 100-200, 200-300, 300+(unplayable)

    Also fell free to join the TPU MW2 team!

    He edited the config file, it's basicly just some texts. It's safe.

    yes, MW2 is horrible, the rumors are true. The lag is reminiscent of a 12,2 baud dial-up modem, and you might contract an STD. Playing for more than a year could leave you impotent, and potentially terminally ill.

    EDITED: Offtopic, wouldn't want the mod to block the thread.
