How to find the host

A Tutorial for Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2

a simple way to show the host

[u][b]How to find the host in Modern Warefare 2[/b][/u] This little and easy tutorial will show you how you can find the host in MW2 Servers. Maybe it's not very useful, but it's interestig to find the host, sometimes it prevent laggs if the host leave, especially if the host-migration doesn't work. This method simply increase the ping bars. [b]First Step:[/b] Navigate to [i]"\Steam\SteamApps\common\call of duty modern warfare 2\players[/i] and open [i]"config_mp.cfg"[/i] with Word Pad. Editor also works, but it'll be very messy. [b]Second Step:[/b] Search ([Strg]+[F]) for [i]seta cg_ScoresPing_Interval "100"[/i] and change the [b]100[/b] to [b]20[/b] If you're done with this step and start your game now, each of the bars represents 20ms, with full green being 20ms or lower, and 1 red being 200ms or higher. [b]Third Step:[/b] This is the last step. Search for [i]seta cg_ScoresPing_MaxBars "4"[/i] and change the [b]4[/b] to [b]10[/b] With saving the config, MW2 shows now 10 instead of 4 ping bars. Now it's easy to find the host. Open the score board and look who got all ping bars green. This is the host because he sits next to the "server", his own computer.

    Posted by ninjaPANDA Emphasis on the MW2 is fail. Good tut, but I think this should just be a "more pings bars in MW2" tutorial.
    You can use it this way an this way, but I think finding out the host is much more interesting than increasing the ping bars :)

    Posted by Jailbot Pros: Easy to read, understood it. Cons: P2P is fail. MW2 is fail. Improvements: Dedis? Idk... Notes: You made a good tutorial, but this game fails hard.

    Just make ping bars turn to text, with the command in the mp_config.cfg, then check the person with less ping (generally 19/29).

    Pros: Easy to read and follow. Cons: That infinity ward fucked us over with the 100 ping interval to hide lag. Improvements: Dedicated servers!

    It's pointless, but it's interesting and good to know. You're very clear with the instructions and the screenshot is good enough.

    I thought the tutorial was just going to say that the host is the one with 4 green bars and then a screenshot it..... Well I was wrong.
