Hi everyone. Can anyone help me. What do I have to do to actually be able to start a game online. I have already installed v.1.5b but it still doesnt work. My console either says "Hitch warning" or "sending heartbeat to codemaster.activision.com"? please help me A.S.A.P.
"Sending heartbeat to codmaster.activision.com" message is OK. If you have DSL or ADSL, you should open game ports on your router. I suggest you read these guides carefully: www.tmmworld.com

it is normal for you to get a 'hitch' warning, and the fact that the server is sending a heartbeat to the cod authentication server means the server is running.
If you dont have a second pc, just run a listern server. Go to Start a New Server, and when it says 'dedicated' set it to 'no. Then start it up.
Running a dedicated server is faster, but you cannot play on the host machine then.
