Is there a save file that can easily be copied, so I can keep my data if I reinstall? If so, where is it located? Please and thank you.

    It uses the Steam Cloud service so your save is kept on a Valve server, so if you reinstall it'll be re-downloaded via Steam.

    Well... right now I have pirated and I bought the "real" version for multiplayer, so I'm guessing that doesn't apply. Is there any other way? I mean the game has to save somewhere... right?

    You have to actually purchase the game.

    Just hover your mouse over the MW2 exe. and it will tell you where the main folder is. Once here go to players/save and copy this whole folder.

    Really guys?

    You haven't figured this out yet?

    Open you cdmw2 folder and copy the entire "players" folder.

    Done. You have all your saves and all your achievements for single player and all your unlocks for spec ops.

    Those are not saved by steam cloud, and if you reinstall you have to replay the entire game and redo any spec ops unlocks over again.

    There is no "save" folder inside the "players" folder, only a config file is in there. Will it still work?

    Regardless of whether or not you know how to help, you shouldn't. FPSB does not associate with pirated games. Therefore this thread needs to be locked.

    Buy the game, and you wouldn't need help to begin with.

    I downloaded the pirated one so I could play singleplayer until I got money to buy the "real" game which I have now. I wanted to transfer the data to it so I wouldn't have to redo everything. I guess I should of mentioned this before, but I didn't think it would be relevant.

    Does anyone have an idea as to where it could be?

    Any multiplayer business is stored via Steam and IWNet. SO that means, achievements, unlocks, challenges, accolades, callsigns, all of that, is over the internet. However I have been able to find a file named "players" in the Modern Warfare 2 directory. That probably dictates what singleplayer missions are unlocked and the config setup so it's really not much.
