Treyarch: COD: Black Ops Patching Process

Treyarch Developer JD_2020:

"Hey Black Ops community –

To answer many questions about the game update / patching process, I’ve provided a short walkthrough below to explain how it works and provide some basic timelines for each phase in the cycle." (Call of Duty: Black Ops, Dev, PC, PS3, Xbox 360)

How many times must devs let people know the process?
Ducky  +   1893d ago
1. Strap monkey in front of keyboard with game's source code open in vi.
2. Come back one week later and compile code. If game is better -> Ship it as patch.
3. PROFIT!!

they better process the stupid config problem on the PS3, it keeps starting in 3D everytime so i have to disable it over and over again and continues to want to reconfigure the options, how it could pass the test is beyond me... Treyarch FTL!

Same problem here. And every time I disable 3D it restarts and sometimes the resolution is blown up and I have to turn my TV off and back on again to fix it.

But this is a minor problem compared to the million other unplayable probs in that game.

i hope you know, that if played in 3D it switches to 720p, normally it runs at 1080p... well that's a tv problem (mine always shows ok after the change), but i don't think it's good for the tv when he has to switch resolutions so quickly and so often... i refused to play BO online till they fix the respawn points, but i found zombie mode so addictive, that i'm playing that instead :)

This is exactly why they posted the process-- to show you that they are and that it requires a process.

They've made a lot of fixes. Just wish the PS3 freezing issues and networking issues are fixed asap.

i think JD 2020 is doing it so people know that theres some process going on.
I looked at the xbox forums and people are complaining that treyarch are not doing anything, this could just show that something is happening in the background.
They need to sort the hit detection on the xbox out soon, Im getting tired of endless hit markers.

I'm part of the unlucky gorup who gets Ps3 freezes and networking issues...I swear i cannot go for a long period of time in blackops without them. It is so bad that i just quit playing altogether now and started on other games.

Blackops is a PoS and they will never get my money since i only borrowed it.

Pretty cool, I don't think anyone had ever really given us the "inside scoop" on this process.
I wish they had listen on what they were working on specifically.
