I had some issue with multiplayer MW2 and uninstalled steam. I didnt know it also uninstalled MW2. Did I just loose all my stats and game saves? I hate this!!!

I would assume since the game uses Steamworks that they would be saved online unlike CoD4. I don't have the game so I have no idea.

I actually reformated recently and did not save MW2's stuff because it said it uses steamcloud, but when I reinstalled and loaded it it had saved nothing. No big deal as I would start over to play it through again anyway, but kind of odd.

I saw someone post on the Steam forums the other day that they only bought Left 4 Dead 2 for the achievements.

erm afik mw2 doesnt save online, its still client side in ure pc. which is why people have edited the mp profile to have lvl 70 x 10 prestige.

Woo! It appears steam has deleted my key and expects me to shell out nearly $100 again!

Edit: It appears this was due to the purge of non-legit keys. Contacting steam support to get my key reinstated.

It's sad, legit guys like Wolph get stuffed around because others, some members here, use sites like g2play...

Funny thing is though crainger, grey trade is perfectly legal and is ACCC and Fair Trading protected within Australia, so if you really felt like it, you could take Activision/Valve to court over it.

Why the **** pay so much? Just get dudes here to gift you all the games and pay them with paypal or something. Surely that's cheaper.

With the region locks, you might get banned - just like the grey market keys recently did.

Savegames are found inside the "players" folder inside the MW2 directory in steam.

settings_c.zip.iw4 and settings_s.zip.iw4 are the two most important files you'll want to keep. Uninstalling steam will remove all these files.
