added, see you are currently playing.
Thats my lad on his pc MW2 single player. I have twin gaming rigs on a lan. I need two copys of MW2 to get both rigs playing mw2 online at same time. The expence :shadedshu
Yeah having to change ya desktop res to get the game going would be pain !
I just want to add that I totally agree about SecuROM & other DRMs. If a game isn't on Steam nowadays, I don't buy it. Period. This one would have been no different.
Steam unfortunately is still DRM, but being account-based it's so much better, as you know.
Installed the latest drivers (cat 9.10) and the error has stopped.
I also didn't change the default resolution. as i hear that some have been getting an error just by changing the res.
The game lags alot tho.(in singleplayer), this game needs some serious patching imo.
I pretty much have the same video card that you do, and our problem is we only have 512 MB ram, so sometimes it will be perfectly smooth, and when we move the mouse 90 degrees or w/e to the right, it hangs for a quarter-second several times. That is because the texture memory is exceeding the 512MB that our card has, and it is having to swap out with ram or the page file. It is really only noticeable on the first level, and on multiplayer, I turn off shadows. Works perfectly for me.
Well my game worked FINE last night..now the freaking thing crash's every damn second. Some DirectX error.
check system under event logs. It should say something about a service.
Nope no service.

Gonna reinstall DX and Catalyst 9.10 see if that makes a difference...
CDDude, you need to put your actual steam name so we can add you! (it is the one you use to log on with)
I just added you as friend.
But mines is: cool_guy2006
Still got the sammeee... problem. Can't change resolution damn thing error's out.
just a friendly word of warning, i wouldn't give out my steam account publically, to prevent accounts getting stolen, please PM them to each other and edit and delete them from posts.
so long as you use a strong password, shouldnt really be a problem. Its all up to you.
Not saying either of you two have done this but i'll just say this incase.
I take it you both have overclocked your gpu's ?
You need to overclock a gpu by percentage. If your default core is 600mhz & you overclock the core to 660mhz thats a 10% oveclock.
Now to prevent lag on highly texured graphics you also need to overclock the mem by 10%.
So if the mem default is 1000mhz you need to take it upto 1100mhz. Having the core 20% overclocked & the mem just 5% overclocked is not a good idea you'll end up with games jurking with sudden movements.
Steam member name is fine as it isn't the same as the login information.
lol, you realize you are at TPU, right?
Dont worry. I'm not here to crap in yalls thread. I just wanted to laugh at Sir_Reals last post
Last time i try & give a word of advice !
I'm sorry but with that advice you brought sand to the beach. Anyways I dont want to highjack the thread. Carry on!
I have my core OC'd to 790mhz from 750mhz and my mem clock OC'd to 1100mhz from 900mhz.
Definitely not huge overclocks, but i still have yet to OC with anything else besides the CCC. I don't think they should affect my games much.
The performance problems you are having would not be helped by OCed ram.
add me up i just bought it off steam unlocks in 3 hours
umm . . .
what is your steam id name?
Ill add you then send you an invite to the group.
Well ya, but i have been using those clocks for a while now, i know at those speeds they shouldn't make much of a difference in performance.
I may try going back to stock to see how MW2 runs.
decrypting on steam now
