i hit up mw2 about 20 min ago and it looks like a patch downloaded, instantly.

and ingame its 1.0.174 and i try to join game when its loading then it says patch_mp.ff is different from server?

I'm on 1.0.174 as well but whenever I try to find a game it stays "Connecting to IWnet...".

yep, i think its because like 95% of the players online dont have the patch yet.

got the same problem earlier this morning. the reason i guess is not all files of the update are downloaded - may be just "im4mp.exe" is updated. anyway Ive solved it.

the solution is to download file "patch_mp.ff" at and replace with this same file at steam\steamapps\common\call of duty modern warfare 2\zone\english

may be "patch_mp.ff" is not the only file need to update, but it works for me now.

other way i guess you can try to reinstall the game and reupdate it using steam.

Or you could delete it, use verify integrity and have it DL it from Steam servers!
