Thanks to Teknogods, loader 1.2 has been released and it allows you to play spec ops online without steam. This means you can use VPN programs, direct IP, or internal LAN for your spec op play fun.

For sake of time, please see the youtube video I did until I get a proper text tutorial written within the next few days.

Text Instructions:

  1. Install Modern Warfare 3.
  2. Download the following items:
  3. This is where instructions will slightly differ. If you are using a VPN program, then join the MW3 network. This can be in tunngle, hamachi, or whatever. If using direct IP or internal LAN, then go to step 4.
  4. Run the “TeknoMW3.exe”, click Settings, and setup your Name and FOV (field of view).
  5. Follow the instructions below depending if you are HOST or CLIENT:
    • HOST:  Select “I’m the host”, press “Start Game” and in-game press “Multiplayer”
    • CLIENT:  Enter the Host-IP, press “Start Game” and in-game press “Multiplayer”
    • If you need an IP address, ask the Tunngle room, friends, or whatever method you are using of the other gamers.
    • It is at this point that the HOST select the game options, and then start either one of the missions or survival mode.
  6. If there are game issues, ask the Tunngle room, hamachi room, or wherever you are playing.

Troubleshooting Tips:

What ports do I need to port forward?

  • Answer: For teknogods loader, UDP 3074 and 29184. If using tunngle, port forward udp 11155.

  2. What is your hamachi network Versatiles?

  3. I want to use tunngle too, but it always lost connection after a few minutes after I joined mw3 room. If u know how to fix it please tell me! Thank You

  4. Please i have probleme

    After read Ip adress for host and press Coop teknogood my game crash whit message ( iw5sp.exe dosent work)

    I say you after install new version

    Sorry my english i am french 🙂

  6. I can’t play with black-box repack installer please help me

  7. Error : Could not start proccess “iw5mp_ceg.exe” access is denied.(0x0000005)

  8. When my friends connect to my IP address and the game started, it says that if you wait more than 2 sec to connect to the game, that means the host is bad. How to fix that?

    • Get a better connection or get less lag then.

      • Should I have a proper internet connection or I can just host with ad hoc connection?
        And, where can I find the correct IP or I can simply type one and be the host as long as others type in my IP to join my game?

        • You are correct. Whatever ip address you are using, whether that is external ip, VPN ip, or internal LAN ip, use the ip address you are comfortable with using with your other gamers and friends.

I tried to use tunngle and hamachi but nothing works. I installed net framework 4 and the update on the two computers.

  26. Please help i have tekno and cod mw3 when i click on TeknoGods Coop Game Stopped Working please help!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  27. Do we have to update our teknoMW3 to play? Cos I heard the latest version wont support cracked games

    • That is correct, so use an older version of teknomw3.

      • So which version should i use? Currently using TeknoMW3 v1.3 but me and my friend keeps getting stuck at “Waiting for other player” after loading a map. And it did not say anything about Bad host..

        • Use older version as newest version has steam fix so cracked can work on it. Ports are opened right?

          • Ports open? You mean port forwarding for tunngle? I’m sorry, I’m kind of a total newbie when it comes to “ports”.

            And under tunggle system option, the “Port Forwarded” is checked and the value is 11155.
            Basically I didn’t mess with my tunggle.

  28. Thank you very much!! I played a lot with my brother! I didn’t have any problem with the installation.

    i host i type my ip my friend types my ip and hes client
    but we dont end up in same room?

    ” i started game tecnomw3.exe” but how could i know port address and ip for host…. Plz help me, i am using dedicated server and played cod2,cod4,cod waw..sorry for my english

    • What you need to do is watch the video tutorial. I have a video that shows you how to patch the game, best to use patch 1, then use teknogods and play spec ops.

  44. How to open your nat ?

  45. A error occur in coop that “””host and client have same steamip, go and check teknogod.ini”” how to fix it

  46. same steam ID?!!! in spec-ops….. aaarrrrgghhhh!


    • In the teknogods.ini file, change the id number for your pc.

      • Host and client have the same id.
        I have the same problem. I changed the .ini file from read me, then i modified the id.then I made the .ini file read me again but it didn’t fix anything. Help please.

        • You changed your id name and it still errors out?

        • I had the same problem,and it was sooo frustrating.AND I SOLVED IT.This happens when the client enters the wrong ip address.To find the ip of the host,go to command prompt in HOST pc,and type “ipconfig”,then write down the ipv4 address.Type this in the clients teknogod window and press start as client.All done!!!
