Q: Can I use my Steam copy of Modern Warfare 2 to play IW4x?
</p>
<p>
A: You certainly can! A Steam copy of MW2 is the prefered way to play IW4x. Read the <a href="support_iw4x_client.html">Install Guide</a> to learn how to use your Steam copy.

Q: On IW4x, can I play with players on Steam or Steam players play with me?
</p>
<p>
A: IW4x is entirely seperate from Steam MW2 services, so it is not possible to play with people playing on the Steam version of MW2. You can, however, invite your steam MW2 friends to install IW4x, and then you'll be able to play together.

<a class="anchor" id="bots"></a>
Q: How do I play with bots?
</p>
<p>
A: Using the console, you can spawn test clients. These are dumb bots lacking any AI and do not move. The command to spawn these test clients is <code>/spawnbots 17</code> (The number is the amount you wish to spawn). The alternative
is to use a bot mod such as <a href="https://www.moddb.com/mods/bot-warfare">Bot-Warfare</a>. This will give the bots pathing and AI making them perfect for an offline match.

Q: Will IW4x get me VAC banned?
</p>
<p>
A: The short answer is no. IW4x is completely external to Steam and Steam Servers (You don't play with Steam users). It's impossible to get VAC banned. IW4x players only play with fellow IW4x players as the servers are completely seperate from Steam.
You are at no risk of recieving a VAC ban.

<a class="anchor" id="cheaters"></a>
Q: Is IW4x full of cheaters?
</p>
<p>
A: Absolutely not! In-fact, IW4x has far less cheaters than Steam servers due to it's more advanced anti-cheat system, preventing .dll and process hooking exploits that plague Steam. Futhermore, server owners have full moderation control unlike Steam
as explained below. If cheaters do slip through the net, they can be quickly banned.

<a class="anchor" id="steamrank"></a>
Q: Does my Steam rank and stats carry over to IW4x?
</p>
<p>
A: No. When you start IW4x, you will be starting at level 1. As stated above, IW4x is external from Steam, so you will have a separate rank, classes, title etc. When, and if, you go back to Steam MW2 you will still have the same rank you had before. IW4x
does not alter this at all. However, you can always manually set your rank back to the level you were if you wish as this is allowed, or just use the unlock all button in the barracks menu to get 10th prestige level 70 with
everything unlocked.

Q: How do I set a custom prestige and level?
</p>
<p>
A: To set a custom prestige, open the console pressing the tilde key (~) and type the following: <code>\setplayerdata prestige x</code>. You can set your prestige to be 0 through 11. The console command for setting a custom
level is: <code>\setplayerdata experience x</code>. A list of experience for all the levels can be found <a href="https://i.imgur.com/M7Pi1JN.png">here</a>.

Q: How can I use cheat protected commands in private match such as noclip?
</p>
<p>
A: You must use the <code>devmap</code> command to load a map, this enables the use of cheat protected commands as it toggles sv_cheats to 1. Example /devmap mp_highrise. For more information on console commands, see our guide:

<a class="anchor" id="fps"></a>
Q: How can I improve my FPS?
</p>
<p>
A: The best way is to go into the graphic options of the game and lower all the settings. The next step you can take is to lower your game's resolution. Keep lowering it until you reach your desired FPS. If your FPS is still too low, there's a good chance
your PC isn't good enough to play MW2.

<a class="anchor" id="lowfps"></a>
Q: Why is my gaming laptop getting low FPS?
</p>
<p>
A: By default, many gaming laptops use intergrated CPU graphics to reserve battery. You may need to force IW4x to use your dedicated graphics card.
</p>
<ol>
<li>Go to the NVIDIA Control Panel by right clicking on your desktop and click on "NVIDIA Control Panel".</li>
<li>In the default screen that pops up (it should be "manage 3D settings", and the "Program Settings" tab should be automatically selected), under "1. Select a program to customize:" hit the "Add" button.</li>
<li>From here, navigate to the folder where IW4x is installed.</li>
<li>Select IW4x.exe and hit open.</li>
<li>Then, under "2. Select the preferred graphics processor for this program:" open the drop-down menu and select "High-performance NVIDIA processor".</li>
<li>Finally, hit apply in the far bottom right corner, and you should be good to go!</li>

<a class="anchor" id="reportcheaters"></a>
Q: How can I report cheaters?
</p>
<p>
A: IW4x has no global control over server owners or what rules they enforce / who they choose to ban. For this reason, if you encounter a cheater you must report them to the server owner you encountered the cheater on. Most good server provide contact
information such as a Discord or website. Note: If a server has poor moderation and doesn't ban cheaters, it's advised you don't play on their servers.
