December 13, 2009 // 8:02 pm - Today TheUnkn0wn from the NGU forums (linked above) has released a Call Of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 CVAR Tool v2.0 for PS3.

This tool allows you mod your SAVEGAME.SVG file so you can have things like super jump, infinate ammo, infinate health, all weapons and much more.

This is ONLY FOR SINGLE PLAYER AND SPEC-OPS. I copied a list of the CVARs (commands) and in the screen shot you can see how you enter the CVARs. Not sure what all commands do but you can experiment with the commands and different values.

Download: Call Of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 CVAR Tool v2.0 for PS3 (Requires .Net Framework 3.5)

Changes in v2.0
I have fixed the 'Fix Checksum', it should now work properly.

I have modified the CVAR's in the CVAR List. Bugs that made 2 byte values create an incompatible gamesave have been fixed!

Why Release?
I am the first to do this aswell as reverse the checksum myself, as I have been able to do this for quite a while. I just thought I might aswell release it as there's nothing special about it.

What does this do?
This allows you to modifiy the Single Player and Spec-Ops with CVAR's.

What are CVARS?
CVARS's are small commands that allow you to change variables in the game. CVAR's are part of the Quake Game Engine. This is what the COD4 Game Engine was built uppon. (e.g: jump_height 999, this will make you jump REALLY high)

How to Use?
1. Copy your 'Modern Warfare 2 - Single Player' gamesave from your PS3 to a USB Stick.
2. Plug your USB Stick into your PC, Load up my program. Load SAVEGAME.SVG from your USB Stick (Located Like This)
3. After you have loaded SAVEGAME.SVG you can now use [ADD] or use the [CVARS] button's to modifiyadd CVARS.
4. Once you are happy with the edits, simply [Save SAVEGAME.SVG] and overwrite your existing SAVEGAME.SVG on your USB Stick.
5. Stick your USB Stick back into your PS3. Copy the 'Modern Warfare 2 - Single Player' gamesave back onto your PS3.
6. Load up MW2, Enter Single Player and go on 'Resume Game'.
7. After the Mission has loaded, Press pause and go onto [Save and Quit].
8. Now you can select a mission or go onto Spec-Ops with your modified CVARS!

Whats the [Fix Checksum] button for?
This allows you to fix the checksum of any manualy edited SAVEGAME.SVG (using a hex editor), if you edit the SAVEGAME.SVG in my program you won't need to use this.

If you are confused at this point, then this Tool isn't for you. If you find Bug please report them to me.

Call Of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 CVAR Tool v2.0 for PS3 is out!

A big note, if you plan to use high jump, be very warned, jumping into choppers and stuff in some missions and other things, and jumping ahead of where the game is scripted to do special things can make it impossible to complete a mission.

after this stage (if i can manage to jump into the pave low) then i should get a trophy and be able to confirm.

EDIT: okay, just jumped into the pave low, it has nothing to do with hitting the target, just jumping forward from the very edge of the roof.

And YES! YOU DO GET TROPHIES! Confirmed it Just this second.

Make a new profile on your PS3 and try it. Normally I don't even like cheats in sp but on a system like the ps3 its kind of refreshing to hear about. go have fun!

Checking that now. Veteran modeing it up to see what happens.

still going through the game to a point where I can get trophies. But I noticed, after chapter 1, All cheats but infinite health (which isnt really infinite) and superjump are disabled.

I tried to use it but everytime I load the program, the save savegame.svg option is disabled...

ignore my last post, you have to uninstall all updates for this to work.

Correct. Evidence of this is here:
Sony has told CVG it's not banning players who utilise the so-called Javelin glitch to cheat in online multiplayer games of Modern Warfare 2.

A Sony rep, however, told CVG today: "I don't believe we are banning people for using the glitch." So expect exploding corpses to be more prominent on Sony's platform, then.

We haven't seen a ban yet but as soon as tampering starts I'm pretty sure we will start seeing bans.

No prob. Another thing is that sony doesn't ban consoles though they could if needed. This is not something serious enough to result in a console ban.

On the point of banning a console I am starting to think persons should at least get a warning before such an action is taken.
