JD_2020 has posted via Twitter a message saying that Treyarch are currently working on a patch for Black Ops across all platforms.
What a dogs breakfast of issues his game has
All of the issues I have could be fixed with a patch. Aside from connection issues, this game is everything I ever wanted COD to be. Thank you Treyarch.
I agree, Treyarch did a very good job with this game apart from some shitty texture work. The only issues I've ran into in the 360 version have been some horrible frame rate issues that has happened in SP and MP about 5-6 times, and party members being kicked while searching for a match. Other than that, it's been bug free.
What I don't get is the backlash against this game. Amazon is plastered with garbage negative reviews from people who clearly never played it. It's like the perfect storm of anti-Treyarch IW loyalists, MW2 glitchers, and anti-CoD fanboys all working together to astroturf the internet with fake bad reviews. The PC crowd has a legitimate gripe with the net code. But aside from that, this is the best CoD ever in terms of multiplayer.
Maybe more Anti-Activision than Anti-Treyarch? But the biggest issue for me was the mipmapping. I hope that gets fixed.
I haven't boughten a COD game since COD4 and I must say, I am having just as much fun online with Black Ops as I used to with 4. I just miss the maps. I would pay $20 to have all the maps from COD4 in Black Ops. The only problems I'm having with the online is occasional lag and connection errors where you have to wait for the game to migrate to a new host. I hope the patch fixes this.
this game is hot, no bull**** perks and nukes etc. funest cod since #4.
No. CoD4 shits all over Black Ops in terms of everything: graphics, sound, maps, and most important Fun.... Oh, and fuck you Treyarch.
well all they did was copy and paste MW2 bugs and glitches included from the looks of it i disconnect ALLOT and i mean ALLOT if its not 1 error its another
plus, they're using the world at war engine, not mw2's
the WAW engine pretty much IS the MW engine though....
Its called the iD engine.
as a matter of fact is awful, kicks you out of games, freezes frame rate issue and a not so good campaign
2 words THANK GOD I've been suffering from a lot of issues in the PS3 version :(
Me too :( I've raged quit out of the game at least 5 times now. It's like the game is just f*cking with me: I will have to wait in the lobby for like 2 to 3 minutes (that's actually a pretty long wait for Call of Duty standards), then the match will finally start loading and you have to wait for the bar to finish loading, then after the bar is all the way there, it just stops and then you see the black screen with the circular loading screen letting you know that it's taking you back to the f*cking lobby where you have to start it all over again. That only happened to me once or twice on day one, but worsened the 2nd day.
Nice, hope this will fix the connection errors I get when trying to join friends :) Keep on going, im enjoy the singleplayer and bots in Combat Training, cant get enough of them :D
Is anyone else suffering from these following issues in BO: * Frame rate issues * Error connections * Lagging while receiving achievements/trophies * Party invite * Glitches * and a few more Also can someone please tell me what's so good about this apple floating glitch, what cause of effect does it have?
I've only played about 3 hours SP and 2hrs MP but so far, none of problems mentioned.
the game not lagging but taking a while to show my trophies thats about it
I've had party invite issues, but only the usual conflicts with the Live party system that most online 360 games seem to have. I've has one or two discos, but nothing worse than what I've seen in MW2 or Halo Reach. No frame rate issues, no lag. In fact it's the most lag free FPS I've played on a console, aside from maybe Warhawk on the PS3 (not exactly an FPS but close enough).
Why do you ask if the apple glitch is good? I thought it was merely a physics glitch like all games have if you look hard enough for them. Yes I experience the game actually freezing for 3 seconds about every dozen matches. During every other match, I experience lag and frame rate issues. The game is fun, but imagine how great it would be if it were made properly.
floating apples make me SICK. I can't even play this stupid game anymore.
a graphic and texture DLC
I am, most of them at least :) But I will contiune to play the game, later today I getting my Prestige Edition :D, more zombie carnage!!!
maybe they should fix the part where the PS3 version finally gets the ability to allow dual PSN logins. a feature that has been available for 1 1/2 years already.
Yeah that kills me that they don't have that. I appreciate the guest login but they could do better than that.
I hope the floating apple is unpatchable. I hope the floating apple takes down craptivision for good.
honestly i have been playing the shit out of this game. its really really fun. the only issues i have had is lag in 2-3 games out of so many that i have played and frame rate issues, some times not able to connect to a party or vice versa and few connection problems but besides that game is running smoothly and having too much fun. so much better , fun and balanced than modern warfare 2
Mostly annoyed by the distance knife kills.
You know something is wrong when both consoles have problems...Like ok say the Xbox 360 version had no problems (hypothetically speaking) at least they can make a game with no problems. but no, each version had their ups and downs. albeit they are slightly random ups and downs such as map detail loading
fix connection errors is all i really want
Yeah, those are the frequent errors i keep getting.
i lost like 8 one in the chambers due to guys skipping around once in a while really pissed me off
nvm. don't need to be bubbled down for my joke. good day to all. Enjoy your AWESOME COD experience.
BTW last time i played which was about an hour ago there were 3.6 Million people playing on Xbox live. Pretty crazy, i've never seen so many people online in 1 game before.
Hopefully one of those are the rendering bugs across all platform.
PC version sucks
How can cod games have these issues when they have been using the same engine for years? Surely they should know how to do it right by now. Glad i skipped this game, the 9 vs 9 player count just doesn't cut it imo
The first of many... Don't forget there will be a patch to patch the glitches in this patch...
That fix the framerate version playstation 3 can be bad even in multiplayer. I'm not interested in the campaign mode, but playing a multiplayer COD unstable framerate sucks
like i said in my other reply to someone i havent seen one frame rate problem yet and im 10 lvls into my first prestige maybe ur ps3 is getting too hot ?
Ok this is nice, hopefully after the patch things will be better, but seriously I havent seen any glitchers, anything to look out for?
Multiplayer patch JUST CAME OUT! and yes, it does help! is lag gone? not 100% but MUCH better then the garbage that shipped... woot
There's an enemy hiding in a building, I see him shooting out the window, sling out my 40mm, and launch at the wall. The wall stands & he takes no damage. When is this game going to get with the times? Adding zombies and wagers is like putting frosting on a 4 year old cake. Black Ops is meh. I want destructible buildings like in BFBC2. That is all.
Although destructible environments are cool, they won't work in CoD's play style. Destructible env. + explosive weapon in small maps = RRRAAAEEEGGGGGEGEGEG
Is the party system at the moment. I know over 3.5 million are playing it on the 360 and so that's probably some of the issue, but in two hours of playing with a full party, we got into a single game about 4 times. If you get into a lobby with just a single person, it'll never import other players, so your pretty much screwed. Other then the party system I love it. Having 8 person party chat enabled again is a huge plus as well. Good job Treyarch.
Except that i have trouble partying up with people and connecting into games. I'd expect it's because of all the people on the game right now, but besides that, that's the only issue ive encountered.
I haven't played the game yet, but I will be picking up my copy this weekend, and I was just curious about something. Has anyone considered the fact the any MP lag could be due to people in your match that have less that adequate connections?
It seems a lot of you ps3 owners are having problems with Black Ops. I am sorry for your predicaments...
you know there are just as many problems with the 360 version at the moment my friend cant even get into a match for ages and when he does it takes him back to the lobby and his frame rate goes down miles when there a few ppl near each other with a napalm strike or something like that the pc version also has its problems too.
ok, so theres a patch being released soon. what EXACTLY will it patch up? that wouldve been nice to know.
my biggest problem is the same as all the other cod games its when u join a match thats just about finished when u get in and the other team have already won when you have just started moving cos you get a loss for that and no chance to help the losing team out it shouldnt add ppl to a game that 5 seconds off finishing imo. I really havent experienced any of these frame rate issues yet but the having no region server thing is really annoying its like cod4 again getting into matches hosted by americans nearly every match and having red lag doesnt help its about 1 second at least latency and thats alot in a twitch shooter like this. I can use a whole clip shooting a guy then watch the kill cam after he killed me and i wont have fired one bullet on the replay.
i feel stupid for paying out money for this game on ps3 they obviously put more effort into the 360 version so im going to trade this game in now for GT5
