A: You certainly can! A Steam copy of Ghosts is the prefered way to play IW6x. Read the Install Guide to learn how to use your Steam copy.
A: IW6x is entirely seperate from Steam services, so it is not possible to play with people playing on the Steam version of Ghosts. You can, however, invite your Steam Ghosts friends to install IW6x, and then you'll be able to play together.
A: The short answer is no. IW6x is completely external to Steam and Steam Servers (You don't play with Steam users). It's impossible to get VAC banned. IW6x players only play with fellow IW6x players as the servers are completely seperate from Steam. You are at no risk of recieving a VAC ban.
A: No. When you start IW6x, you will be starting fresh. As stated above, IW6x is external from Steam. So you will have a separate rank, classes, title, etc. When, and if, you go back to Steam Ghosts, you will still have the same rank you had before in Steam. IW6x does not alter this at all. However, you can always manually set your rank back to the level you were if you wish as this is allowed, or just use the command /unlockall to get max prestige level 60 everything unlocked.
A: You must use the
sv_cheats 1 command to enable cheats. For more information on console commands, see the Console Commands Guide.
A: The best way is to go into the graphic options of the game and lower all the settings. The next step you can take is to lower your games resolution. Keep lowering it until you reach your desired FPS. If your FPS is still low, there's a good chance your PC isn't good enough to play IW6x.
A: By default many gaming laptops use intergrated CPU graphics to reserve battery. It may be the case that you need to force IW6x to use your dedicated graphics card.
