Treyarch’s Fixing Known PC Black Ops 2 Issues Soon

Call of Duty: Black Ops 2‘s PC version has a few issues, but Treyarch is aware of them — and dealing with them, it seems, although we’re not sure how long that might take.

According to a post on the official Treyarch forums, a number of issues are known for the PC version of the game. The developer says it’s working on fixing them, but in the meantime, you might want to check the list below and be on the lookout for any of these issues.

  • A crash may occur if no DLC is owned when joining on a player that is in the Nuketown 2025 lobby.
  • Having both an on-board audio device and a PCI sound card enabled at the same time may result in a crash.
  • A crash may occur if the user tries to run the game without an audio device installed.
  • Changing resolution while livestreaming may result in a crash.
  • When viewing a film as a party, users may get a crash if the party leader leaves while the film is buffering.
  • Loading Movies might not play if a user unplugs a USB audio output device after the game has launched.
  • Users may lose functionality after locking their PC while a loading movie is playing.
  • A steam error may appear after selecting update when prompted with a “Game Settings Have Changed” message. Launching the game again will resolve this.

looks like all of these problems are for PC only not ps3 or xbox which most gamers will be playing on.

Don’t bother getting it for PS3 until the issues are fixed.

Can not get to multi-player “black ops II server is not available…” Nothing on the website. When you do get online, you try and join a game, “An error occurred while trying to find a session, please try again.”
If you do make it to a session, you will wait anywhere from 2 – 25 minutes waiting for the game to start. It will state that it needs more players to balance teams, yet the room is full.

Lag time is HORRIBLE! I got on yesterday and could not finish a game, now can not get online. Reset modems, routers, and PS3.
Black Ops 1 – no problem getting online or playing multi-player
Back to Black Ops II, got online, can not join a session. SO FRUSTERATING! 10 bucks it’s not fixed by double XP Weekend…
