MW3 lunch trailer

main/iw_25.iwd is different from the server is a Call Of Duty Modern Warfare 3 error that has poisoned the multiplayer experience for those who still havent bought the latest game DLC.

main/iw_25.iwd is different from the server   happens when a non-DLC player tries to join a game hosted on a DLC user machine, even if the current map is not one of the new DLC maps.

While InfinityWard still havent released an official solution to fix this iw_25.iwd error, a user on the steam forums confirmed that infinityward has allowed him to legally share the files  iw_25.iwd and  iw_26.iwd online, this fix will not allow you to play any DLC maps, just fix the issues when you try to join a game on a DLC server playing a non-DLC map.

To play the new maps and get a go on the new co-op missions you must buy the DLC at 15$ or so from the Steam market.
