Your not the lone stranger there.

In both 7 x86 and x64 it hard freezes the PC around the half an hour mark for me.

In Vista x64 it freezes around the 3 hour mark. However the cutscenes / loading screens have the pause/skip glitch whereas they're smooth in Seven.

It's pretty annoying

Current problems with IWnet and MW2:

- Joining with a large party is extremely troublesome, more often then not a member of your party with get disconnected from the host, get kicked because the game is for low ping players only or countless other errors.

- If you're playing in a party and the game tries to merge lobbies there's a big chance one of your party members will be kicked.

- IWnet makes strange host choices, quite often you get stuck with a host who can't give anyone more then 3 - 4 bars (10 bar setup @ 20ms per bar)

- IWnet fails to migrate host more often then not, sometimes it says "No suitable host available" when I'm in the game able to host and keep everyone at a green ping.

- Iw4mp.exe crashes often when trying to join a game.

- The game has random lock ups, small 1 - 3 second freezes during multiplayer, many users are also reporting green, black or pink "matrix like" effects covering their screen for a few seconds.

- Users are reporting losing their multiplayer rank after a PC crash.

- Rank hack is available and working, I've seen at least 10 max prestige players so far (usually at the bottom of the scoreboard)

- Aimbot/Wallhack are currently available and undetected by VAC.

- You can't type in the lobby.

- Games often start with unbalanced teams.

- When a player leaves mid game more often then not a replacement isn't found for him so the game stays with uneven teams.

- No team balance, if your team loses a player you can expect to be outnumbered the rest of the game.

Anything I've missed?

I haven't experienced any of these problems. In fact, MW2 has been nearly perfect on all multiplayer accounts, for me. I don't miss dedicated servers one bit. In fact, I like this WAY better.

You must be blessed by God himself then, I dunno. These are all very common problems and complaints.

I am not disagreeing with you since it seems like an issue with the font, but....

The only time there's a language selection during the installation process is during installing Steam. The game installation does not present language selection, or anything else for that matter; here's installation process from Steam support. It's a pretty lame process without any option being presented, other than do you want to install the game.

The same PC has no issues with any other games, MW1, L4D2 demo, etc,language or otherwise.

Most people just go ahead and install the newer drivers on top of the old one and some corruption may appear because of this.

Did you also checked that your monitor drivers are up to date and/or compatible with the OS?
No, I did not do that, just ran the installation over the existing one. While I agree that corruption may appear, it would affect other games and the OS in itself as well. There's no monitor driver for my monitor for Windows 7.

I actually setup Windows 7 Professional 64-bit last night just to test the installation of MW2, after removing it from the Steam account. Yes, the ATI driver had been installed clean in this OS. There was no other program installed, just Steam and tried installing MW2. The installation of MW2 has aborted with an unable to run some script. Trying to install MW2 under XP on the same machine didn't work either, the installation simply hung after about ten minutes.

While I understand that one of the common denominator during my adventures with MW2 is my PC and the hardware could be suspect; however, the Steam client and or MW2 could be the culprit just as well. The fact that Steam keeps the game configuration and possibly the installation files as well makes reinstalling the game pretty much useless as I've learned. Had the installation of MW2 be successful with other version of the OS on the same machine, it's likely that the same configuration would've been migrated from Steam. Quite possibly with the same font issue as previously. I have another machine where I can try it, Windows Vista, but I am getting tired working on this issue.

Does anyone know why they bundle crap now with pc games? Steam, drm, installers that break if one small thing is out of line?

Steam is IMO one of the most reliable programs, If it goes down its back up in seconds. I have yet to see it down longer than 20 mins..

I have been using steam for ~4 years. Also, Steam is NOTHING like DRM.

An additional program I'll never use? Seems like crapware to me.

it has many uses, it also uses very low resources, its almost like its not even on your system. your hate for is is unfounded, unless you have no clue what you are doing that is. just take the program, it doesn't cause any problems for anyone who really uses it. back when it first came out it was a pile of crap, now its something worthwhile!
