    If its gives an error like Direct X has found an unrecoverable error just restart game and lower graphics(This helps for alot of errors)

    the Corrupted file in question is mp_playlists.ff which is located in Steam\steamapps\common\call of duty modern warfare 2\zone\english folder. Go there, delete the file or move it elsewhere (size is 27kb) and the game will download the file and huzzah! no more lame freezes
    there u go >

    Well, for the people who are experiencing the same problem, these are the symptoms:

    Singleplayer starts normally.
    Freezes at Splash Screen.
    No errors.
    Splash Screen gets a frame at the bottom and to the left, no other side.
    Veryfying with Steam wont help.
    Have to shut it down using the Task Manager och by clicking on the Splash and then "Close program" when the window of options pops up.


    I actually figured this out before, but I was too busy playing the game I forgot to post. The corrupt file was "mp_playlists_dlc1.ff" in "Steam\steamapps\common\call of duty modern warfare 2\zone\english". Delete it and you should be able to play again.

    I have also heard about the "mp_playlists.ff" being corrupt (udin39 also said it). But deleting this was not the solution.

    Thanks for your help anyways

    dude, reinstall the game, it should work...


    A cucumber, an olive and a penis are talking.

    The cucumber says "I hate my life, when I get big fat and juicy they cut me up and put me in salad."

    The olive says "That's nothing, when I get big fat and juicy they cut me up and put me on pizza."

    The penis says "You think you have it bad, when I get big fat and juicy they put me in a bag, throw me in a cave, shut the door and leave me there till I throw up"
