Just bought this game for $30, now lets see if this game was worth the hype or not. 91 FPS capped framerate? Argh, that does not sound good at all.

Did you set the "image Quality" to native?

I think they are on par, if not a tad bit better than BLOPs

And its definitely not worth $60 I had a BB gift card for $35, so only paid $30.. At $30 its not too bad.. but same game just a few added on scopes, and guns.. :|

I did not see a native image quality. All was set to extra or high where allowed. Will check again tonight. Thanks

i'm sure it's been said before, but the sound effects for some weapons are ridiculous. the M4 sounds like you've strapped a 12" sub to your rifle.

Played a marathon last night, lots of Search + Destroy (if you die you wait til the match is over, like Counterstrike). Played some Confirmed Kill, another great mode, when you die you drop a dogtag. Whoever picks up the tag gets points for their team.

I like the killstreak system this time around. There are basically three options. You can get killstreaks like the old games, which reset when you die. Or you can go Support and keep your kills as you kill (or complete objectives). Things like body armor that you can drop for the team, etc.

The last killstreak option is Specialist, which lets you assign three perks. As 2, 4 and 6 kills, you get the perks in the order you assigned. Pretty neat, especially since Perks level up now, so you can level a few and still get your Pro ones as you get kills. I was using Hardline (1 less kill to get a streak, same as before) to unlock Quick Aiming Pro, then Stalker Pro then Sleight of Hands. So you basically get faster and better as you get kills, starting with the first, and you end up with 6 perks at the same time.

And when you hit 8 "points" you get "the specialist"... which enables ALL perks lol.. it's pretty funny. I usually hit it just as I run out of SMG bullets, then it gives me scavenger and I can pickup bullets.

Ah, that explains what was happening. I started getting all kinds of random stuff and was wondering wtf happened. As fun as dropping a missile on people is, I think I'll be using specialist most of the time.

I like to play Hardcore mode, but they are all locked from the get go. At least you level up quick.
played for about 20 minutes last night till my internet decided to stop working. Was able to get to level 4 in my first round of Kill confirmed.

I'm having ton of fun with the IMS. That thing it's one of the funnier/fun weapons to use lol!

Also I didn't know they were actually real:

around the third match i played i got one in a care package. i had no idea what it was so i just deployed it in a corner at one of the flags (now i know a corner spot is not ideal). anyway i ran off to keep fighting and was surprised when kills started popping up. so i made my way back to the thing and rounded a corner just in time to see it decimate two enemies. good fun :D

So, some misleading posts ITT concerning maxfps and fov especially the screenshot with fraps showing 102 in the upper left. Has someone figured out how to unlock these 2 cmds? And I'm not referring to widescreenfixer here.

This is pretty much the buy or not to buy limiter for me here.

Sorry for the delay about no fps cap solution.
Go here "C:\Program Files (x86)\Steam\steamapps\common\call of duty modern warfare 3\players2" open file "config_mp.cfg" and change this value seta r_multiGpu "0" to 1.
I have 6970 crossfire and just play with this and ... voilaaa no fps cap.

Honestly, there are a few tweaks to the graphics engine, but its really just more of MW2. Different perks and what not, some different weapons, but other than that its really like mw2 with more content. I am constantly over 120fps, with in game settings maxed out, i will likely setup a profile to force higher modes of aa as well.

Vs battlefield 3, Mw3 is not as graphical stunning, has smoother polished controls, cons it really is just another mw2 but replace the 2 with a 3 add different maps, and weapons perks.

Overall if you liked MW2 you will like this game. I honestly can say i will be playing both battlefield 3 and MW3. I just got skyrim as well so no doubt most of my gaming hours will be in that with some breaks for mw3, bf3, and witcher 2.

Loving this years game releases so far.

How did you unlock you FPS.

Thanks,

EDIT: Just saw above, that setting multigpu flag removes cap!

Sorry.

well it seems I can't join any games when @ 120fps... server connection lost while loading.

If it puts me in an ongoing match then it loads and runs fine. But then next game after the lobby, I get dropped while loading....

Yeah its definitely unlockable. Thats 146fps with multigpu enabled. It is buggy as hell though. The interface flickers and whatnot and you stutter in games. I run SLI 460s and tried AFR1/2/singleGPU/vsync on-off. Its the config setting that screws it.

it unlocks, but if I don't enable V-sync i get 500fps and the whole game explodes. I guess it gets me server timing issues of some sort.

Then If I run vsync (which I hate with a passion) it seems 120fps is still too much and I can't start a game from the lobby. Get disconnected everytime.

If I join an ongoing game then all is well.

So what's the story with multiplayer? Is everything unlocked in the unranked dedicated servers or are you limited to the starting classes?

From what i've been reading, UDS means you get a generic layout for the classes, and you're stuck with that.

If you want unlocks and fully customizable layouts, you have to play on their proprietary servers, which of course, utilize shitty P2P and host migration.

MW3 would have sold millions on PC if they had done one simple thing.

Allow ranked dedicated servers, or at the least, allow dedicated servers to have all unlocks, that way people could play all they wanted and have a dedicated server to call home.

Or not have ranked/unranked at all. Its nothing short of completely retarded. After seeing how they did with the dedicated servers for MW3 it almost seems like they are trying get away from the PC.

Beat the game. Single player was a nice action packed movie. But I did have some strange issues on my end. For example, I have the game set at 2560x1600 resolution, but in game it seems like I am playing at 1920x1200 and everything seemed "stretched" and doesn't seem like I am playing at native resolution.

To be honest I don't really see why this game gets such high rating. If those reviewers are juding just by the single player experience I can understand that. But the multiplayer is just like Black Ops or MW2. Granted I never really started the single player of battlfield 3 and just jumped to multiplayer and stuck to it for a week or two. I can't see myself going back to MW3. It just seems like they just decided to release an overpriced expansion pack to me.
