With thanks to Jaunty and Dietary for the old OP. Due to limited funding, all emblems are cut from OP. j/k they are spoiler'd below

Old Thread with MW2 info and stuff

Demo has really bad spawn areas, case and point:


Penny Arcade Call of Duty Black Ops News Feed:
LIVE FIXES


2/28/11 (Title Update 7)
New Features:
Issues Addressed:
• Matchmaking improvements to return higher quality results faster. This change includes settings that are tunable in the live environment, so tweaking may continue beyond initial release of this update.
• The in-game store now hides DLC map packs that do not match the language of the player’s disc to decrease the possibility of users downloading the incorrect language version.
• Calling in a Chopper Gunner immediately after getting shot down in a Gunship will no longer end the Chopper Gunner run prematurely. Required timing-specific button presses.
• Split screen players are now able to change camera perspectives and cycle through players as a spectator.
• Addressed an issue where the most recent match played in Zombies could overwrite the best match played on the leaderboard.
• Improved Zombies lobbies to prevent players from erroneously receiving the error “Unable to join game session” under certain circumstances.
• Addressed a number of community-discovered Zombies gameplay exploits.
• Additional security feature updates.

Gameplay Tuning:
• Additional sniper rifle tuning.

First Strike FINALLY makes it to PSN, another Double-XP weekend for all platforms.

HOW DO I PLAY WITH YOU GUYS IF I'M PLAYING...

ON THE PC?
You'll probably want to get in The Steam Group
which is invite only, so post in the thread with a link to your Steam Profile
like this: http://steamcommunity.com/id/jaunty/

And people have been gracious enough to have rented servers for us to play on! If you're not a regular already, be sure to put PA as your clan-tag so you don't accidentally get kicked when someone needs a slot:
#1 [PA] Black Wang Server (Chicago)
IP: 173.199.94.45
Admins: DietarySupplement, Jaunty
Currently Serving: Team Tactical, except SnD

#2 BloodSport [West]
209.247.83.209:3084
Admin: Rage
Currently Serving: Domination

Also a fair number of people have had trouble with performance on the PC, here are various tips and tricks that have helped a few people out:

I'm not sure if this fix has been posted yet, but I thought I'd throw it out there. I tested it myself and the difference is HUGE.

-launch blops multiplayer
-ctrl alt delete
-in your task manager, right click steam.exe and set priority to LOW
-set priority on blackopsmp.exe to HIGH

I still see people jumping around a little bit, but my PERSONAL performance is butter-smooth. It's like night and day, literally 100% better. Try it, if it works for enough people please put it in the OP.

I'm not 100% sure why this works, but there have been rumors that blops is not using video RAM effectively. If that's the case, setting the priority on the mp client higher is probably alleviating the problem at least partially by allocating a larger percentage of system RAM.

If your PC supports multi-threading:
seta r_multithreaded_device "1"
in config_mp.cfg (Steam\steamapps\common\call of duty black ops\players)

How do I improve the game's sound quality?
You can change sound to CD mode: 16 bits 44000 hz CD via control panel sound setting.

Misc. "potential" performance tweaks:
Run Steam in Offline mode > Start Black Ops > End the steam.exe process > Set BO process priority to high
/r_multiGpu - should be set to "0" if you do not have a multi-gpu graphics card.
/r_blur_allowed - people are reporting minor frame boosts with this set to "0"
/r_distortion - people are reporting minor frame boosts with this set to "0"
/r_dof_enable - people are reporting minor frame boosts with depth of field set to "0"
/r_glow_allowed - people are reporting huge frame boosts with this set to "0"
/cg_brass - people are reporting minor frame boosts with depth of field set to "0"
/r_cachemodellighting "1" - people are reporting minor frame boosts with depth of field set to "1"
/r_cacheSmodellighting "1" - people are reporting minor frame boosts with depth of field set to "1"

I tried all of these and it made no noticeable difference, maybe some of you will have better luck.

Mercenary, Operations, and Specialist contracts - Contracts are going to be huge, do challenges for what type of gun you want and earn more XP and more CP! (Something like challenges)


- Wager Match - a new Free for All game type. Put your COD Points against other players and the top three people get paid in the match - top 3 get paid.

    I really enjoy Discovery, especially on Dom.

    Stadium's main issue is that B is an insane meat-grinder even by other map's standards on Dom, but even then I still enjoy it.

    Cracked is easily my least favorite map in the game. I have a pretty strong dislike of Launch, too. There's just something about maps with a big ridge in the middle that doesn't sit well with me.

    I don't particularly mind either of them. I'm not going to argue the technical merits of their design, but when they show up I don't want to quit the lobby and fine a new one (like I do with Cracked).

    Never played Ambush. I think the reason I don't mind (and even kinda like) both Discovery and Berlin Wall is because they're two of the more friendly sniper maps.

    I really hated Discovery for a while, but once I found a love for the ACOG M16 that map is quite great for picking a professional tactical position and going to town on motherfuckers as long as your team doesn't let them swarm over the bridges. Of course if your team is the dumb ones that map is brutal.

    I really like Cracked, but that's just a preference thing. Some aspects of it are rough, but it's good for close quarter combat, but offers really nice sight lines for long range AR shots or sniping to defend B from on the two windows on either side of the map.

    Hey, long time no see.

    I recently borrowed a copy of BLOPS from a friend while he's sucked into Rift and am looking for more people to shoot mans with. I generally suck, and from my limited experience with BLOPS online play, it seems that being on a crappy pub team punishes you *more*

    Or maybe it's just that I don't know the maps/traffic patters very well, so I'm running around like silly goose.

    Anways, my gamertag is the same as my username (grim sb) and I'm more than happy to absorb bullets for the team.

    Also uberbitchisback mode with the Famas dual mags in groundwar, the entire team in 29 seconds start to finish. Thats going to have to be rendered because...well...entire team meet dual mag SoH reloads.

    Steady Aim + Variable Zoom L96 is quickly becoming my new favorite combo.

    On Hanoi I had a kid put two hits into me with a 74u and I did a 90 degree turn and domed him with a dirty quick scope. It was so dirty I had to go take a shower and cry after I did it, he also proceeded to spam hate mail at me calling me a cheater, aimbotter, bitch, and every other generic insult around.

    I just replied to him Umadbrah?

    He replied that I should go and pleasure myself

    So I proceeded to follow him into another game and exclaim with joyous amounts of glee

    Ground War has soured my mood.

    In any case, I had an awesome game earlier. I went 56-1, and my only death was because of a ridiculous suicide. We were running as a group down one of the first-story B buildings on Hanoi, and an enemy was amidst us. We were shoulder to shoulder with him and strangely, no one, including the enemy himself, seemed to know he didn't belong. I rush ahead a little bit, decide to plant a claymore by the doorway, and our friend rushes forward, triggering the claymore and blowing me up. Sonnuvabitch.
