The countless people who have trouble with STEAM might think otherwise

I personally don't use, so it doesn't bother me one way or the other.

I can understand the anger over it all but there is some positives
cheers settingsun
The game is completely unplayable because it is set up like xbox live.

Anytime someone who is the host feels like it they can limit the upload and lag the rest of the players and get a free win because they will not lag at all and everyone else will.

I have personally witnessed people calling in the AC 130 regardless of how few kills they had. Someone called in an AC 130 5 seconds after the match began with 0 kills once and just stayed in the air shooting the entire time.

There is already a crack that allows the pirated copies to play on IWNET without any problem.

Aimbots, shoot through wall and wall hacks are already present after less than a full week of the release.

People have already created custom games that allow power ranking and infinite ammo high jump etc and it is all ranked through IWNET without consequences. There is a video on youtube called lol server or something like that which shows this in action.

And if all of that within the first week of release does not deter you from wanting to spend the cash then host migration or should I say the lack there of should. 9 times out of 10 if the host leaves host migration does not function as intended and you end up dropping from the match. Or the game will randomly just dump you or crash with an error.

This game is a complete disaster in every aspect and unless we get some form of dedicated server to replace the currently unbearable match making service then this game is not worth even 5 bucks to me. I don't care if I end up playing the game on a dedicated server system that someone wrote in their spare time it would still be 1000 times better than the match making system.

You were right Astala...

It was the video driver for my X1950XTX card. I didn't realize that the latest ATI drivers are not supported for this video card. Once the latest driver was removed, registry leftovers cleaned out, and the legacy ATI drivers installed, the strange characters turned in to regular fonts.

The way it came about is that IW did respond to ticket that was opened for this issue yesterday and the tech suggested that the issue is the video card driver. I almost responded to him that he's full of it, but decided to follow the links he sent. Low and behold, it's all good. It would've been better listening to you caople of days ego, but it's all good now; thanks...

Root kit uses very little resources on your PC as well; that's basically what Steam is by definition.

The Steam client runs under the "System" accounts on Windows, has full control of the PC, "calls home" on scheduled basis, it can prevent you doing things that you may be desirable for you. All of this only affect legitimate end users with valid license keys for the game; hackers and people who use these hacks don't care are not affected by the Steam client. In some respect, I do agree with people who use the hacks.

Certainly Valve does not use this root kit, oops, the Steam client, for any malicious activities; however, they can and will use the information collected for advertisement purposes. This information is very valuable for advertisers and it can fetch quite of few bucks.

Steam is a different type of DRM. It tries to verify every time the game is run that its legal or unmodified.
I myself have to say it has gotten "A LOT" better then when it was first launched, and makes things a little easier for people like me that travel and like to play a game or two on my down time.

Hearing that it took about a week that mods and other hacks appearing for MW2, it doesn't seem like that Steam is trying too hard preventing game modifications. On the other hand it doesn't stop Steam to create problems for legitimate end users who had purchased the game in question...
