    Just a FYI to people using Xfire. For some reason it does not like Modern Warfare 2 and will get that directx error constantly when changing resolutions. Make sure to turn it off. Should solve problems.

    You'd think. But my oldest son plays both and is equally as fast on both. He makes most gamers look pathetic. It isn't often when he is on-line on X-box he isn't the top player for kills. It sucks to play him on a LAN game. I get a buddy and we go after him and give him the slowest machine and he still makes us look pathetic. Of course he started gaming at about 4 years old and is 23 now. Same time frame I've been gaming, I'm just old:shadedshu

    I've now got MW2 on both my rigs.

    I've seen the odd post in forums where people saying MW2 has no multi player via Lan. Thats just not true ! You just set up pivate game & invite who evers on your network. Also any of your m8s on steam as well.

    However has anyone tryed joining a m8 or clan member on a none private public game?

    Its like :banghead: I found the only way is to try joining the match your m8 is on (via steam) You will almost defo get a server full message ! So its then a case of sitting there clicking join game over & over till you eventually hit on an vacant slot :ohwell: You'll prob get p*ssed off trying though.

    I think MW2 auto adds you to your m8s team (Team deathmatch).

    I am already level 17, havent fed the dog in 2 days, my daughter is still at daycare, and work is calling me about my absence. Im fairly addicted :laugh:

    Still looking for more members!

    @Sir_Real: Thats why you make a party, and move into games as a party, rather than using the invite system. There are too many players online filling up spots everywhere to use the invite system at this point.

    It should be in the game. You invite to your party, but then again I havent actually dont it yet, but I assume that is how it works. Invite someone to your party on the main screen, (the one after you hit "play") then attempt to join Team Deathmatch or Free for all, etc...

    Well if you click invite on the game it just pops up your steam m8s ! Theres also an option to invite a group. But then theres still the big problem of none of the matches having empty slots.

    I reckon its almost impossable to get yourself & afew m8s up on a public match together :ohwell:

    Clan members vs. joe public. MW yeah, MW2 No ! Poor :shadedshu

    hmm. I would assume that it would automatically match up with a game that has the available spots.

    To play a public match with your m8s do this>

    In the MP game Click "Invite". Steam pops up, click invite on the m8s you wish to join & wait for them to join your party. Then select the type of game you want to play. You'll all start on the same game & team.

    Ya m8s name tag show up blue.

    I'll be game as well. Just got some new parts in for the PC gotta installem..and tinker.

    As for the party to invite and play with friends, its integrated into steam. You invite friends from steam and then as a party you go and play a game...but you can't start a private game with those friends, or can you?

    It is confirmed: you can start your party, then move into games as a party, and it is great. Their curser shows up blue on the minimap, so that you can track each other, and work together. Quite something.

    If and when the game gets below $40, or we happen to get the ability to use dedicated servers, I'd happily join this little clan. I'm wileepyote on steam.

    Remember, I can only add you by your EMAIL or USERNAME (the one you login with), the name that you use just for games (the one you can change at your whim on the settings menu) will not work.

    good stuff, you are both invited to the team. I will probably change the name from "TechPowerUP Team to Team TechPowerUP: MW2" or something to better reflect it is a MW2 team.

    Still waiting on shadowfolds steam name though.

    And also, like I said earlier, if anyone thinks they can make a better avatar for the team, have at it.
