Official Steam MW2 Rank Backup

after waiting for a week or so Steam have told me that i could have restored my rank and this is how you do it if your rank gets reset.

Hopefully it will help other as i have now passed the rank i lost and so it is no use to me any more.

Quote:
A recent game crash or system error may cause your multiplayer stats to rollback to an earlier date or reset completely.

However, to protect your stats against this, backups for your stats are frequently saved to your Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 folder in Steam.


In the event of a rollback or reset, please locate your Modern Warfare 2 install folder:

Default Location: C:\Program Files\Steam\Steamapps\common\call of duty modern warfare 2\

Open the \players\ folder


Your multiplayer profile is updated regularly as a .stat *and* backup file.

Your original profile file will begin with: md202ef8d

Your backup profile file will begin with: md202ef8d.bak


In order to recover your lost data, please do the following:

Locate the profile and backup .stat files with the most recent "Date Modified" listed in Windows

Move your original profile .stat file to a new location (Creating a new folder and placing it here should be fine).

Rename your backup file by removing ".bak" from the file name.

Once you have finished this, launch Steam and re-test this issue.

This doesnt work for me, the steam cloud just overwrites whatever I attempt to restore it to.

I completely deleted the player folder and then the userdata folder under C:\program files\steam\userdata\4358938 (well actually i renamed that folder) and relaunched the game. It resets everything including rank/achievements.

Third game I entered since doing that, was a bump server (boosts level to 70), but I've started going through the annoying as process of killing my connection / backing up userdata/players when I hit those modded lobbies, so who knows I might actually make it through the prestiges on my own now.
