UPDATED: Feb 2012 - added Update 4, TeknoGod's Loader 2.4, and TEP files.
UPDATED: March 4, 2012: Added updated TeknoGod's Loader v2.6.3.0!!
Note: All servers and clients below v2.61 of loader have been dropped.

For those of you who "tried-before-you-bought" the game in the older Modern Warfare 3 post, here is a new tutorial to help you setup Modern Warfare 3 for multiplayer action.  If you have the Reloaded release or the Steam version, this will get you updated and ready to play.

AlterIWnet has released a new multiplayer client called AlterMW3, but it is very buggy at the moment and actually breaks the singleplayer portion of the game.  TeknoGod's has also released a new loader which supports all game modes and is the culmination of 3 months of hard labor and testing.  AlterMW3 requires an always-on internet connection and only works if their server is up. On the other hand, TeknoGod's Loader works over the internet, but it doesn't require an internet connection making it perfect for LAN matches!!  Due to these facts, this guide will focus on getting TeknoGod's loader up and running, since the AlterMW3 program causes more problems than it's worth.
I was originally going to make a new post for BlackOps since AlterIWnet had also released an AlterOps client, but that is also buggy, it breaks singleplayer, and doesn't support Zombies.

UPDATED Dec 14, 2011 - added Latest update, Reloaded v2 fix, and TeknoGod's Loader.

For those of you who "try-before-you-buy" and others who prefer to "get their feet wet before diving in" for the entire purchase, here is a small guide to help you transform Modern Warfare 3 into an "unofficial shareware" version.  Either you downloaded the Reloaded release, or you acquired the game from Steam through nefarious means and now you hunger for more...

If you have already downloaded and installed the 13.8 GB RELOADED release, you are ready for some "shareware" action - just skip down to the good parts and play.
If you haven't grabbed the game yet, you can legally download the 13.8 GB worth of COD:MW3 server files straight from steam... insert the files and play!
