While the unwashed console masses are quite content with their peer-hosted multiplayer games, the PC master-race still foam at the mouth if they don't get sweet dedicated server love. While the dedicated server implementation in the freshly-launched Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3 isn't ideal (in the supposed interests of leaderboard integrity and security, only peer-hosted games contribute to your player rank and statistics), the option of running your own standalone server is at least present.

If you have the hardware and bandwith and you'd like to get your very own server up and running, MW3 co-developer Sledgehammer Games have posted up a starter guide describing the basic setup and explaining some of the features you can tweak.

Unfortunately for those playing today, it might take a little longer than usual for your regular GSPs to get a full fleet of servers up and running as the server currently requires what appears to be an almost complete 14GB install of the game to function and with Steam's content servers seemingly straining at the moment, it's going to take a while for Australian providers to get these up and running in their data-centres.

Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3 is now available on PC, Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3. For our take on the console version of the game, hit up Steve's in-depth review.
