    Help!! MW2 Launch Error

    Ok, I just got MW2 from a torrent, is it ok to talk about torrenting and such on here? If not just delete this thread. Ok, continuing.
    When I double click on "iw4mp.exe" to launch Multiplayer or "iw4sp.exe" to launch singleplayer, I get a error, same error for both, and that error says,
    " Couldn't load image 'gamefonts_pc' "
    I've read around multiple sites about changing something in steam files, but, I didn't use steam, so there's no steam mw2 files.

    Other people have gotten this to work for them, but I just can't get it to work for me.
    I was missing a few files, but I managed to re-download them and put them where they belong.

    I had to wait a day and a half for the damn game to download, I really don't want this all to go to waste :\

    Blah
    I can upload my gamefonts_pc when I get home, then you can replace it with yours.

    Apparently it's not just one small file. Try this instead:
    Code:
    ============================================
    Fixing gamefonts_pc errors for localized MW2
    ============================================
     
    In certain cases the Modern Warfare 2 executable might
    crash with one of the following two errors on launch:
     
    ----------------------------------
    Couldn't load image 'gamefonts_pc'
    ----------------------------------
    (if no 'english' files exist)
     
    OR
     
    ----------------------------------------------
    Couldn't load image 'specialty_new_nonenglish'
    ----------------------------------------------
    (if actual 'english' version exists)
     
    This can be fixed by going to the main/ directory in MW2,
    and renaming all 'localized_russian_iw01.iwd' files (or
    'french', or whatever language you use) to 'english'.
     
    For instance, my main/ folder (%steam%\steamapps\common\
    call of duty modern warfare 2\main) contained the following
    files originally:
     
    --------------------------
    localized_russian_iw00.iwd
    localized_russian_iw01.iwd
    ...
    localized_russian_iw08.iwd
    --------------------------
     
    Renaming them to be named like this fixed the error:
     
    --------------------------
    localized_english_iw00.iwd
    localized_english_iw01.iwd
    ...
    localized_english_iw08.iwd
    --------------------------
     
    Hope this helps!

    I can't do that, because I don't have
    %steam%\steamapps\common\call of duty modern warfare 2\main)

    this was torrented, not DL'D through steam.

    but I do have (C:\Modern Warfare 2\main) and that has files like: video and iw_00.iwd through iw_07.iwd
    Also i was told that the \zone\english file should have 97 files, mine has 99, and my \main\video file has 57

    Anyone?

    Bump....
