For this tutorial you will need:
Steam modernwarfare 2 files
fourDeltaOne client files from here
fourDeltaOne dedicated server updater which can be found here
Microsoft .NET Framework 3.5
Once you have these files, you’re ready for the fun stuff!
Make a new copy of your mw2 steam folder. Name it something useful, such as “FD1 Server”
Run the client installer, making sure to select the folder where the server is (C:/FD1 Server/)
Place the files from dsut.zip into the root folder of your server install (C:/FD1 Server/)
Run the iw4m_updater.exe and let it download the files.
Navigate to your C:/users/(your name) /appdata/local/iw4m/ and copy all of the files into your server folder (C:/FD1 Server/)
what your server folder should now look like
Make a shortcut to iw4m.exe on your desktop. If you don’t have one, rename the iw4m.dat to exe. Add the following parameters ( -dedicated +set party_maxplayers 18+set net_port 28961 +exec server.cfg +map oilrig +map_rotate) to the shortcut if you want an 18 player server running on port 28961 using the server.cfg that you have configured, loading OilRig as the map.
At this point your server should be functional. But we still need a few more things, such as a server.cfg. Here is an example of a server.cfg. remember to change the things you want different. Place this in C:/FD1/Main/
If you’re hosting this at your house, you will need to portforward. Just google it, this isn’t a tutorial on that. Basically, you will have to port forward the port that the game is running on (in this case 28961)
Run the shortcut. You should see it load your config file, and begin working. Go to the game, and browse for your server. If its on your network, you should be able to see it, and connect.
This is what it should look like if it loaded your cfg and everything is working
If your server is running sluggish, try adding the -console parameter in the shortcut. It will change it back to the old console.
