Yeah.. a problem.

Ok so I've been playing MW2 quite a lot, and started playing less, spending more time on other games. One day I decide to play some mw2 multiplayer, when the game won't start. Singleplayer is fine, so is spec-ops, but whenever I open up multiplayer, it just goes black. It doesn't go to the menu or anything, and when I open up the boot menu to force quit the program it says it's not responding. What's happening? I WAN'T TO KICK SOME BUTT!!! has anybody had this problem? can anybody help me? I've already reinstalled multiplayer, but not singleplayer - should I? Thanks in advance. Oh and if no one can help I'll ask IW, but you guys are awesome.

    Uninstall the whole game.
    Virus Scan.
    Reinstall.
    Patch.

    And before you do that, let the multiplayer load for about 30 minutes and see what happens. A similar event happened on my 360, loaded multi, nothing happened. Waited for about 6 minutes and it worked.

    Check official forums to see if IW screwed eveyones game.

    My two cents, lets see what the PC owners say.

    I was having that problem. Didn't know what to do so I just left it. I had a pirated version. I'm getting original in the next two days so I hope it's gonna work.

    Maybe the key words pirated version explains why it didn't work.

    I don't think that it's balanced to work when it's pirated.

    Well Snix probably has an original game? So it can't be that. I don't know. Maybe he does have a pirated copy..although he couldn't play then because Steam updates the game everytime they see people can play multiplayer on pirated copies.

    Here is a good solution for all my game problems.

    -Uninstall both games (SP & MP)
    -Check your COD6 directory for any remanining files.
    -Delete those files with the Delete-button.
    -Reinstall.

    YOU SHOULD BE FINE!
    If this doesnt works, try this:

    -Uninstall with the CD.
    -Check COD6 directory for remaining files and delete them with the Delete-button.
    -Install in another directory (maybe a map on ur desktop...)
    -Patch & virusscan ...

    YOU SHOULD BE FINE!

    Great to give you these tips , hope it helps!

    Stop calling it COD6. It's NOT COD6, it's not the 6th COD game. It's MW2 or CODMW2.

    Try putting something into the microphone jack on your PC.

    My MW wouldn't start once when I was on a LAN. We had no idea what could cause it, but we tried out putting a bitten off speaker cable into the microphone jack. It worked.

    sounds like a great solution, I remember that the virus stuff causes trouble...

    Thank you!!!

    I use original game by the way. I sat outside my local game store 30 minutes before it opened, the day MW2 was released.

    If that doesn't help the problem lies in your pc, not the game itself.

    Tried what I said? Put something into the microphone jack.

    Apparently if you install the game wih a microphone plugged in, it won't start with nothing plugged in there (at least for me with MW1). Dunno if it's thesame if you installed with none plugged in.


    strange way of fixing stuff.. but i tried that as well, and no result.

    Well there has been a lot of expansions so it can't be cod6. It's MW2. The case doesn't even say COD6 on the case.
