Black Ops Complete Bugs List ( PEOPLE CONTRIBUTION )

Besides the Performance issues ( the most important at the moment ), there is a lot of issues that are actually affecting our experience on this game.

Let's make a list with a detailed summary and a short description of what happened, if a screenshot or video is present would be great as help, i will update this thread with your contributions later.

IMPORTANT : Read the list, search on the list, and please, do not post already posted issues ( like lack of connect command ), it takes to me a long time to update this thread

ALSO IMPORTANT : Please, post the issues with the following template (copy the code below) to make me a less  frustrating update:

[size=150][color=#FF4080]â—˜[/color][/size] YourName : Issue [i]-> Link ( if exists )[/i]

â—˜ YourName : Issue -> Link ( if exists )

User Interface / HUD / Front End :
Buttons that are not working, disappearing items, placeholders, etc.

â—˜ roth : Mouse implementation in menu screens is incomplete. Scroll bars don't work. Navigating up and down by clicking the arrows don't work. It just goes to next entry.
â—˜ Axizor : Once I used an RC-XD on the map Grid and in the HUD Radar (minimap) it displayed the RC-XD as a small plane icon instead of it's usual small RC car icon.
â—˜  : Occasionally not able to select attachments tab in MP. Even if I have already bought attachments for a weapon and used them, sometimes the option to select the "attachments" screen is grayed out and I'm not able to select it. Specifically the Galil and Commando- as soon as I unlocked it.
â—˜ Fatra : And can the developers add a quick refresh button? Like the button in the Steam server browser?
http://img535.imageshack.us/img535/7316/serverborwser.jpg
â—˜ if i connecting to a server and i press the cancel button sometimes i am back in the main menu and i have to refresh the server list (sometimes it takes up to 2 min to find all servers)
â—˜ SgtSpock : Double, triple or even multiple clicking on servers name doesnt take me to the server.
â—˜ 2/3 matches, when the playercard pops up in the upper left corner, the background doesn't show..
â—˜ mavfox : Team colors are reversed on certain maps. Example - OP should be the reddish color while SOG should be gray. During game play, the colors are reversed and shows the opposite during kills and chat.
â—˜ Renzska : Left and right arrows in all areas of the game only toggle through the options and actually don't move through them, left to right.
â—˜ Renzska : In-game contracts don't show time remaining to complete.
â—˜ AaronAMV : No servers will show up on the server browser. -> http://imgur.com/lveVS.png & http://imgur.com/HjzGn.png
â—˜ |GEN| Bradley : "Friends" tab on server listing does not work aka it doesn't show any friends online playing games.
â—˜ |GEN| Bradley : "Favorites" tab on server listing does not save servers even if you use the "add to favorites" button in game.
â—˜ wazups2xs : Server browser doesn't list all servers. The most I can get it to show is about 120 servers.
â—˜ Newcorpse: Friends list shows Steam users that does not have the game in their accounts, this make difficult to find players with a huge contact list.
â—˜ HokesP : Fonts in friendlist are way to big need to scroll for ages if ya wanna invite/... friends... COD:WaW had a nice friendlist!
â—˜ HokesP : Servers don't show up in serverlist, i own servers but i need someone who can see and enter it invite me.
â—˜ ||XO||Praetorian : Specific server not showing in server list (not all are shown) or favourites for certain users (not all users) -> http://community.callofduty.com/thread/100314075
â—˜ UnbornX69 : Tropas team text chat is prefixed with (Communists), not (Tropas)
â—˜ Lord_Deji : Subtitles issue:
Even if I've put the subtitles ON I only have them during the cinematics and loading cinematics but not during gameplay. They are display as this: http://screenshot.xfire.com/s/106698762-4.jpg
â—˜ YourComputer : Intel (in map loading screen) told me grenades will never explode while you are cooking it. However, cooking a grenade and not tossing it will get you killed
â—˜ _S_E_R_G_ : 5:4 aspect ratio (1280x1024) doesn't supported by the game.
"AUTO' for Aspect Ratio option in graphic setting doesn't consist 5:4. Here is some screens:

http://img405.imageshack.us/img405/5923/blackops201011131834531.png

Gameplay :
Glitches, Exploits, Stucks, Problems while performing actions, Missing interaction, etc.

â—˜ NeNiicK : Without any reason I cant shoot, switch weapons (it will switch, but after the 1~2 secs), reload or knife for about 1~2 sec. but I can walk, ADS and look around.
â—˜ Dorest0rm: When blast doors are closed, theres still sun coming thru the "hole" [i]-> http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=eqIBmIPeUUk
â—˜ Gameplayko : When I placed "Red Dot Sight 1"and my emblem, then I have no scope in game.
â—˜ Cromatox : I can't zoom in with sniper rifle if I hold shift, was possible in all other CoD's.
â—˜ Levinon : Issue [i]-> Perk 3 Ninja PRO Still hear my footsteps when running, still hear myself when jumping over obstetrical.Also enemy footstep sound is not increased.
â—˜  ILuvsTehMudkipz : With hardline pro, you can't re-roll your care package while a teammate is trying to take it.
â—˜ YourComputer : Unable to shoot through thin material. (See Nuketown domination, [i]cardboard boxes
at the B flag).
â—˜ The RC-XD is able to kill you through walls and even through the bus on the map Nuketown.
â—˜ Some people have managed to remove the smoke and flash effects from their screen and are able to shoot accurately through it.
â—˜ Suggestion:  When diving to the ground, your ability to aim should be hindered.  Many people are using this as a dodge and are able to aim accurately the whole time.
â—˜ Suggestion:  When the Perk: Second Chance is used, you are invulnerable for a second while it kicks in.  1) if shot in the head, Second Chance should not be able to be used.  2) You should not be immune for any number of seconds.  If you are being continually shot, you should die before Second Chance kicks in.
â—˜ Saint AtR: Ghost Perk Pro is not working, you still get shot down by aircraft.
â—˜ Phragmine : There's no option to switch teams. This, combined with a lack of autobalance leads to lots of 4v9's in Search and Destroy.
â—˜ YourComputer : Head shot failure: I hear the "clank" sound that we're all used to from W@W (the one that sounds like you're shooting a metal helmet) but i'd be lucky if the game registers it as a head shot. There should not be a "clank" sound if it was not a head shot.
â—˜ BigSexy : Unable to shoot between railings in MP. It's as if there was a wall there.
â—˜ SgtSpock : Sniper rifle with suppressor is useless even from short distance. Suppressor away and it works again.
â—˜ Lexusex : Scavenger pro does not replenish tactical grenades.
â—˜ YourComputer : Opening then closing the Steam overlay prevents aiming down the sight (current workaround is to sprint).
â—˜ YourComputer : I got killed by my own sam turret. How does that happen? I shouldn't be killed by my own deployments.
â—˜ YourComputer : The Stoner63 LMG's red dot sight is faulty. You'd be lucky to get a long distance kill with it. Mean while you are getting killed by MP5Ks from long(er) distances.
â—˜ Awaknen Easley : After watching a bajillion killcams, it seems that only 10% of the people killing me actually shoot me.
â—˜  Widow Maker : since the first patch key strokes register with a delay and when they activate they have a prolongued duration( ex: pressing W for forward, geting finger off of button, still going forward)
â—˜ G915 : Unsure about some surfaces w/ hardened skill (if bullets should or shouldn't penetrate it), railings for instance, also some wooden crates and stuff, need to do some research on this.
â—˜ asdasdasd111 :You can't zoom in (sniper) when holding down Shift.
â—˜ Mickilla : Sniper headshots survivable with the suppressor attachment in place, even at point-blank range. No exception, even on the big L96.
â—˜ HokesP : No Spectator mode.
â—˜ wooteh : Me and my bro sometimes play on the same computer, and his class names appear in my Custom Class list and vice versa, same with the controls, this wasnt a problem in MW2.
◘ MaFuMa'SD :Camara Gets Crazy After Use of (7 Kills – Valkyrie Rockets).
â—˜ Morihaus :  Very often, Spawn zones are very near to enemies location.
â—˜ Morihaus :  Sometimes buggy RC-XD control(total mess of controls)
â—˜ Morihaus :  sometimes KS don't count!!!(I had ks of 5, i have crate and spy plane as my defaults, and i didn't get them:/ Few times:/ Everyone else have their KS rewards.
â—˜ SmilingPolitely : Inverted mouse settings do not apply when using guided rockets (e.g. Valkyrie rockets). Applies to both campaign and multiplayer.
â—˜ Lexusex : Combat training bug :  Bots with Ghost are still detectable by UAV. Ghost pro is still seen in thermal scope.
â—˜ Lexusex : Combat training bug : Bots dont use equipment. Impossible to get hacker pro.
â—˜ Lexusex : Combat training bug : Bots are clearly wallhacking sometimes. (Looks like an issue with wall transparency settings)
â—˜ Groby2345 : I was playing around with my RC car and it just fell under the map. It wasn't lag or anything,  I wasn't laggy at all... I woulda taken a screen but it went away too fast.
â—˜ AWES0MEVIDS : Gameplay issue when Dual Wielding: LMB fires RIGHT gun whilst RMB fires LEFT gun.
â—˜ Dorest0rm: Really hard to aim Airstrike direction. Fix: Make it drag able instead of turning.(Like Mw2)[/i]
â—˜ YourComputer : Calling in too many care packages/sam turrets fills the air space, preventing you from calling in other care packages/sam turrets. It would be understandable if these helicopters killed people as they came in, but they don't.
â—˜ Worldwar2 : In Multiplayer RMB fires left weapon, LMB fires right weapon.

Performance Issues :
FPS Dropdowns, Stutters, CPU Ussage, Loading Times, etc.

â—˜ Worldwar2 : The game does not utilize above 50% on my SLI'd GTX 260 GPU's, averaging around 45% use. Using one board / disable SLI does not max out utilization on the one GPU at all as well.
◘ HijäcK : Ingame performance drops sometimes to like 20 fps from 35 on random occasion. (Q6600, 8800GTX, 4 GB, Win 7 Pro 64), Sometimes the game freezes for a few seconds while browsing through any main menu tab.
â—˜  JeZu : need a core 2 duo e6600 or phenom x3 8750 for play Black Ops on low graphics is a bug
â—˜ Aurorae: Anytime I'm out-of-game and just looking at stuff like: killstreaks, contracts, etc... sometimes my game just randomly freezes for like ~4 seconds, and then goes back to normal.
â—˜ Sacacorchos : Create a Class : The model soldier in the center of the screen take ages until loaded and displayed,today i saw just a loading symbol during one minute or more.
â—˜ SgtSpock : Sometimes fps drop is huge from 125 to 50-60. I have 3.95 GHz i7 930, OC'ed GTX295, 6 GB RAM/1800 MHz (full graphics in cod:waw steady 125 fps, little tweaking AA, AF off steady 333 fps)
â—˜ G915 : Stuttering issuses after 1st update, a little better than before but still present and annoying. Most apparent in killcams and small or explosion/effects heavy maps.
â—˜ mavfox : server browser refreshes and bogs down my CPU. I've seen this happen in CS Source, whenever you refresh you server list...you get huge lag spikes upward of 200+ ping resulting in game freezing. A Stop Refresh button usually cures this bug.
â—˜ Swissha015 : Huge fps problems, max 25 and stable = 20 fps pm if want stats.
â—˜ wooteh : Every 20-30 seconds the game gets frozen for about 5-10 seconds in the menu.
â—˜ wooteh : The "Loading Game Settings" takes ages sometimes, or doesnt finish loading at all.

Online Functionality :
Lag, Choke, Stats not being updated, challenge, displaying items and content, updating your profile, etc.

â—˜ Maestro : When I tried to join a server I got a nasty message about something with configstringmax.
◘ HijäcK : Ingame ping tends to be about 100 in normal gameplay. Also depends on the server, but randomly my ping goes up 999 for a second, then it returns to normal, but sometimes it stays above 300 and goes up to 700 and down to 300 and repeats several times, which leaves me most time to no other option, than disconnecting from the server, not only getting a loss, which I don't deserve, but also lose my xp from the match.
â—˜  Monkey HR MonkeyDFO: issue _. when i start my multiplayer it trys to connect but then it freezes for like a few sec then it gives an error like 'error' The call of duty server is not available at this time please try again later.. Link-> http://www.xfire.com/video/3abc22/
◘ HijäcK : Friends can't join my games and I can't join theirs, doesn't matter how many slots are open.
◘ HijäcK : I can't join any games of my friends in the Zombie Mode and they can't join mine. I didn't try playing it normal online, because I don't want to!.
â—˜ HijacK : The game is currently unplayable, having a ping of 60 and only seeing like 1,5 seconds of 2 makes the game totally unplayable, it worked fine yesterday though.
â—˜ Nilsb7 : Friend invites not being received. happens randomly, sometimes i receive them sometimes i dont. friends got the same problem.
â—˜  Attica451 : I'd like to add an important bug.  Whenever I try to join the same server as my roommate who is on the same router it says " Can't join server.  Duplicate qport detected."  It also disconnects my roommate from the server he is currently playing on.  This is the first game I've ever come across that has given me that sort of problems.  We've always been able to play on the same servers in other games.
â—˜  elsydeon : I have been having internet connection issues on my network while the CoD: Black Ops software is active. My roommate and I went through the router's logs and discovered UDP floods on various ports (3074/3075, a 31xx port, and some over 32000) both inbound and outbound.  This seems to be happening when I am in the server browser.
â—˜  zarclean : Noticed when me and my brother are trying to play at same time(me PC, him 360) if im in a server i get disconnected when he tries to join a server and when i try to join a server he gets disconnected.
â—˜ SgtSpock : When starting BO Fetching Stats, Connecting, Downloading weapon stats etc takes for ages. Even 15 minutes sometimes. I have 8 mbit/s Internet connection.
â—˜ wazups2xs :Can't invite friends through Steam or join a friends game through Steam.
â—˜ wazups2xs :No way to join a specific server or add a specific server to your favorites by console.
â—˜ basics : Can't join a friends game without receiving an invitation beforehand.
â—˜ Newcorpse: Friends cannot join to Training mode.
â—˜ Newcorpse: Overall kills and deaths on stats are not displaying the proper values.
â—˜ Janktu  :  Wager Matches only seem to have one cost associated with them.  Every wager match I go into is 500 COD points and I cannot find the option of choosing a cheaper version.  I know on Xbox and PS3 there are three amounts that you can play for 10/1000/10000 but that seems to be missing from the PC version.
â—˜ SparkOne :many of german Players have troubles with Serverbrowser causes from the Router (Speedport W700V), after an error we've to restart the Router.
â—˜ Titanium17 : After countdown, new map image seen, but no loading bar, no map name.. I get kicked out after every game on every server and have to reconnect.
â—˜ mczgb : cannot link to my account in theater beta. [ *website issue* ]
â—˜ mczgb : login problem with this forum - it took me 15 attempts to post this reply[ *website issue* ]
â—˜ Janktu  :  No joining as a party.  What I mean by this is if I want to play with my friends, there is no way to get us all on the same team unless we just luck into it.  Considering I play on the PC platform mostly for the social aspect of the game, this is very frustrating for me.
â—˜ NineDollars : leme make it more clear lol. I cannot join the same server as my brother. we are on the same network. when ever one of us joins, the other one gets connection interrupted. eg: im already in the game, when my brother joins, i get connection interrupted. vice versa.

Game Functionality:
Contracts expiring early, Challenges that does not unlocks, Not working features, Theater mode not recording, etc.

â—˜ Ltn Big Mack : right alt being detected as ctrl. I'm using a standard plug and play keyboard without any need for drivers or something, so that cannot be the problem.

â—˜ WOrLdWAr2 : Sometimes contracts do not stick after buying them and exiting the operations menu and they revert to your previous contracts before you bought the new ones.
â—˜ Newcorpse: Cannot connect to specific servers via console ( /connect command )
â—˜ Profzy : When I change the name of a class and I restart Black Ops, the name's didn't change.

â—˜ BugCrush3r : In MW2 in hardcore TDM when an enemy with no siliencer shoots you see a blip on the minimap but in blackops only when a spy plane is up do you see the blip. When there's no spy plane you don't see the red blip on the minimap (when you press ESC). This works in MW2 so I'm assuming its a bug in BO.
â—˜  Circusjonko : I CANT make a screenshot because even screenshots dont work in this game (when i print screen and go to paint, all it pastes is a big giant black screen).

(Verified with 4 players so far, example: I started the round at level 8 on a ranked server , after the round was over I wanted to create a class, so I disconnected, went into the menues , started clicking on my newly aquired weapon , then suddenly the weapon wasnt there anymore and my rank was 8 and not 11 as it was moments ago).
â—˜ mczgb : theater not recording - I can find only 3 wager matches in recent games.
â—˜ mczgb : yesterday I finished one contract, but when trying to take another it was 0% completed.
â—˜ Lexusex : Theater mode shows replays of release date.(Tuesday) + THEY ARE NOT MINE.
â—˜ Inifekt : Cannot toggle option for Mouse Smoothing. Mouse is always slow to respond.
â—˜  Mr Huk : I didn't see it with the other server issues but you can't join a server until it's finished refreshing all the servers, which can take awhile.
â—˜ Dorest0rm: Endgame screen needs to be longer, not enough time to look at all the information in detail.
â—˜ ]Tori : Rank lost without warning when leaving a ranked match AFTER the round is over.

When you startup black ops, it starts with the cursor and the "loading circle" of windows, immediately gives you the latest game invite, fades to white screen in 5 seconds and you have to end process. Re-starting black ops gives the same thing over and over again. Rebooting my pc was a fix for me.
â—˜ MrTurtle908 : Black screen, hourglass loading mouse icon. Have to restart computer.
â—˜ ...Again ?! : another error (not only mine), direct3d device present failed driver internal error (-2005530585) Before game dxdiag test are OK after game crash (direct3d crash) same dx diag test doesnt pass. (problem with 640x480 resolution).

â—˜ Fast4ward On Pc after 11/11 patch cant play more then 1 game and it crashes

â—˜  xine  : if use a class with attachements in domination, the attachements don't even work/appear on the gun. Dunno if this goes for all attachements but it does not work with  dual mag on the ak74u.
â—˜ mavfox : killcam is just horrible, maybe it needs some type of slow motion like mw2 but it's not even fun watching the kill cam for it's lag and then instant kill. Part of the fun of killcam was watching it in slow motion smoothly.
â—˜  IrishK :  The M14 appears to be prone to weapon jam. This may be the result of pressing the left mouse button repeatedly, very fast, but it should be investigated.
â—˜ coolzed : An issue created by the shading and particular, analyze the picture linked  -> http://img207.imageshack.us/img207/4158/bugreport111110.jpg
â—˜ Lexusex : Clan tag on some weapons is hardly seen (high texture settings)
â—˜ Lexusex : No background of community custom titles is shown during the game. Only their icon/logo.
â—˜ Mechzer0 : Faulty / buggy environmental lighting and prop rendering. Causes doodads, props, trees, etc., to appear improperly lit, and it looks really bad.   -> http://img4.imageshack.us/img4/6697/faulty1a.jpg
â—˜  Circusjonko  : I've seen that if u play HQ on "summit" and you go upstairs in the building where theres a balcony where sometimes the HQ is. There are some boxes stacked up against the wall. Now the thing is that if you are like 15 feet behind the boxes they disappear you dont even see that they are there. And if you move slighty more forward they suddenly disappear. I noticed this because i was camping to gaurd the HQ a ghost came and i shot him exactly where the boxes should be. So when the boxes are not visible you can even shoot traight trough the area like theres nothing there.

Sound:
Problems with stereo, quality, muted sounds, etc.

â—˜ Renzska : I only hear footsteps coming from the right speaker.
â—˜ G915 : Problems switching between sound devices, for instance - if i run game without my headphones plugged in, then switch the game off, connect headphones and start the game again, the sound is still coming from my speakers and not headphones, need to change it manually in options. btw logitech g35 headset.
â—˜  IrishK : The Enfield has no reload sound.
â—˜ Ra1dMaX : Footstep sound....fix it you dont hear footsteps at all exept your own, makes ninja perk useless.
â—˜ Demonplay :  Can't hear helicopters at all on the Jungle map. *low repro rate*
â—˜ Demonplay :  General sound ques like footsteps, weapon clicks etc are inaudible.
â—˜ Demonplay :  You can hear the enemies chatter which is annoying when everyone seems to shout out something every 2 seconds, gives your position away to the enemies.
â—˜ Lord_Deji : Sound issue: Onboard sound card like Realtek seams to have problems with the game. I do not have any sound in menus and gameplay in both multiplayer and singleplayer except in cinematics and loading cinematics.

Server Issues:
Problems with server functionality

â—˜ ABC=Darth_Rogue : Spectate mode kicks you from the server after one minute.  I'm guessing this is due to inactivity.  Admins need to be able to sit in spectate for as long as they want to help catch cheaters.
â—˜ HokesP : No Next Map and Change to Gametype coomans on the RCONtool.
â—˜ HokesP : Message Rotation is not being Saved in servercfg.
â—˜ HokesP : Admins on server get kicked out for inactivity (We should decide when a player gets kicked)
â—˜ Demonplay :  Can't play with friends on the same team most of the time because Server needs to balance player numbers. Expected Result : When the server shuffles players between matches, it should put people who have invited each other on the same team if possible.
â—˜ 4ragoRn : Yesterday i was playin on S&D .nl server. After the round, ending killcam shows up. Player was RC car and after 1 sec. server crashed. Gives an error > http://imgur.com/IZU7u.jpg
â—˜ Darkflame : Player spawntimes need to be definable via server admin (rcon console)
â—˜ yce teh chease : when I try to connect to my server with a reserved slot, a lot of times I cant join and it says "server is full" ok I know that, thats why I used the reserved one.
â—˜ Motiv : The ability to restrict weapons in unranked (as promised) - Currently all weapons are selectable, so a a "Galas" only server is not possible, or a restriction on snipers to 1 per team (and just one type) can't be done. -> http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=YZ1xBBouNHM

Single Player
Issues related to the Single Player Campaign

â—˜ Rexss: Singleplayer crashes at the airfield when you have to enter the plane.
â—˜ Rexss: Singleplayer crashes when you have to kill the guy talking on the radio in the airfield. The Multiplayer crashes when your playing 5 to 10 minutes.
â—˜ SmilingPolitely : Inverted mouse settings do not apply when using guided rockets (e.g. Valkyrie rockets). Applies to both campaign and multiplayer.
â—˜ Sacacorchos : Executiv Order mission , before using the binoculars at the beginning you cant move while Woods does it.Maybe its not a bug,only to prevent the player to move and run to the road.
â—˜ Sacacorchos : Executive Order mission : After using the binoculars and see how Weaver is "interrogated",Soyuz-1 is launched and leaves a purple fuel trail while going up.If you reboot mission by running outside "map" or if Woods get killed,the trail will appear on the air while Soyuz-1 is ascending.
â—˜ Sacacorchos : Executive order mission : Before Soyuz-1 is launched,you must execute with a weird-curved knife two soviet soldiers to get their uniforms.While Woods get to cover behind them,you can run to the soviets and stand exactly in front of them without penalisation,as if they were blind.
â—˜ Sacacorchos : Executive Order mission : When meeting Bowman and Brooks,sometimes Bowman will be duplicated and Brooks dissapear.
â—˜ Sacacorchos : Executive Order mission :  While entering the base before meeting Bowman and brooks,two soviet fuel-trucks leave the base.The drivers will have the hands too close of their head,holding the air while the steering wheel is about 30 cm. down away from their hands.
â—˜ Sacacorchos : Executive Order mission : When entering the base,the alarm sounds and everybody runs to their positions,blablabla... Bowman says "Snipers on the roof!" before the snipers appear on the roof,so or Bowman is flying with a no-clip or he has *****-thermal vision.
â—˜ Sacacorchos : I think its Revelations,when you discover who is interrogating you and you are set free and wild on a installation."Someone" will punch you to the ground and aim you with a colt,suddenly he will be wearing sunglasses and carrying an AK,and a second later he will be one more time aiming you with a colt and without sunglasses.This bug make you reboot the complete level because nothing else happens,the game stays there.
â—˜ Sacacorchos : Akimbo guns : Right weapon shoots with LMB , left weapon shoots with RMB.


Suggestions:
Low priority Stuff, Just feedback about the game, things that you like to see or improve in the game. ( don't be ridiculous )
Not everyone will be agree with some of this suggestions, but, suggestions are suggestions...


â—˜ Amoeba : operations contracts should be neutral. i.e. work for both hardcore and normal mode and not be mode specific. I play hardcore mode and rarely see operations contracts for it, the list is almost always just normal game mode and i think it would make sense to make it non mode sensitive.
◘ HijäcK : The loss you get when you leave a game early should be taken out, I don't get why I get "punished" for leaving a laggy server. I don't care if anyone tries to have their player records clean of any loss.
◘ HijäcK : Add servers with 12 players max for gamemodes like TDM, Domination, Sabotage etc, 8 players in a Free-for-All and 18 players for Ground war. 18 are just to much to be played in every gamemode.
◘ HijäcK : Have the ability to get Black Ops servers somewhere else, than only gameservers.com, I don't have anything against them, but other games offer that too and I never experienced something like this in any game, not on Battlefield, not on Medal of Honor or Team Fortress 2!
◘ HijäcK : Having an option to use Creat-a-Class after a Match without disconnecting. It's just annoying to leave a good server (if you maybe find one in a random rare occasion) and then, after maybe just switching out one attachment or perk, seeing that your servers is already full or worse, you can't connect because the game is stucked in "Connecting to..."!
â—˜ TheRafal : I just wan't, if it's possible (all are possible !!!) all racon command for the UNRANKED server in the RANKED server.
â—˜ Darkflame : Stop search option added to in game server browser to hault listing of MP servers at any time.
â—˜ HokesP : Ingame Admin panel would be nice.
â—˜ Morihaus : Maybe C-a-C/Emblem Editor/Contracts option between matches and while playing "Preparation" (before Wager Matches?).
â—˜ Morihaus : Be able to chose type of Wager Match.
â—˜ Morihaus : Complete reset of MP rank/money/everything.
â—˜ Morihaus : Maybe Wager Match servers?
â—˜ Demonplay :  Claymores seem to go off almost instantly. (unless I just can't hear the click anymore like everything else)
â—˜ Demonplay :  Pistols should be slightly stronger, and you should be able to switch to a pistol much faster.
â—˜ Lexusex :Hardened perk does not seem to provide good benefit in wall penetration.
â—˜ Lexusex : AK74u and MP5k are having little to no difference stat wise.
â—˜ Lexusex : Spas destroys other weapons in his own class. Semiauto with large clip and long range. Killer with Steady aim. Has silencer. No need to use other shotguns. (once I unlocked this gun, I was using literally only it till I reached my first prestige).
â—˜ Lexusex : keep other shotguns range the same, but cut Spas's range to balance its semiauto fire and large clip.
â—˜ Lexusex : It is really frustrating getting knifed in the back. What is more frustrating is watching a killcam and seeing person sprinted towards you while having marathon and you did not hear a single step.
â—˜ DigitalFlow : Air needs to be balanced. sure maybe ghost pro will possibly cloack u from air. but untill then you have helos that just kill you as you spawn... no time to pull any anti air out..
â—˜ Rickyboy120: New Feature, not bug. - Have a tracking feature for Contracts ingame instead of In-game menu.  For those with widescreen, this won't be much of a problem, plus it's irritating to find a good spot, go to menu and click on contracts.   Options could be : Have 4 different resizing choices, choose to have contract description (Ex: VETERAN: Kill 5 players in one match using an assault rifle) or just tracking bar.  (Ex: VETERAN: 2/5 Killed.)
This has been used in Valve's game called TEAM FORTRESS 2,  use that as a reference for designing this.
â—˜ Dorest0rm: Extra suggestion; Allow to change classes between matches without leaving the server.
â—˜ ABC=Darth_Rogue : Should have the ability to set up at least 18/24 (ranked/unranked) slots for VIPs.  Clan members pay for servers.  Clan members should have priority.  Only having a VIP list of 5 sucks.
â—˜ ABC=Darth_Rogue : Need to have the ability to manually enter IP addresses in favorites menu.
â—˜ ABC=Darth_Rogue : Extended mags perk should not cut down on the number of magazines carried.  It's a perk for a reason.
â—˜ YourComputer : Suggestion : Store theater mode recordings locally (if not already done so; "last 7 days" thing implies that it isn't).
â—˜ 4ragoRn : Add Region Filter for server browser.(Like BFBC2) it helps alot for finding more server for your region. > http://screenshot.xfire.com/s/96118147-4.jpg
â—˜ Renzska : I'd love to be able to play wager match game modes in private matches without betting and with a minimum of 2 players to a maximum of 18 players. Basically, all wager match game modes just for fun.
â—˜ Renzska : When selecting to quick join a ranked match, or wager match, we need the option to specify which game mode we'd like to play.
â—˜ abhinanda : Whitelist more rather than keep commands blacklisted. This includes everything from connect, reconnect and bind to more complex tweak and serversided commands.
â—˜ abhinanda : First fix the core problems; performance and functionality issues. Secondly release Modtools, much can be modded and will no matter what you do in balance purposes. Then, thirdly the small things, not directly related to a functional gameplay.
â—˜ wazups2xs : Auto-join server feature. When a server is full let us automatically join when someone leaves.
â—˜ Anteries : Joining a party just like in modern warfare 2 was very good idea, and worked fine. Friends needs to have different color than the team players to easly locate them on the map.
â—˜kawz : bare bones on unranked please
â—˜  Worf KAC  : Multiplayer the name tags of friendly's are so small we can't see them like we should never had a problem from COD4 until now even in the lobby names are so small it's very difficult seeing them.. they need to make it the same size that's it's been in previous games  all my buddy's are saying the same...

    I simply can't join MP games. It varies as to what happens. Firstly, when opening the game it will say connecting, then fetching stats - however it never gets past this point and claims that the CoD servers are unavailable.

    Sometimes I get past this point and can view the server browser. When I try and connect to a game it times out and loses connection to host.

    If I am really lucky I might actually join a game ( this has happened twice in around 60 attempts). however when in game my ping varies between 80 and 999 and is constantly variable. When playing other games online my ping is steady at around 35-40.

    I am in Australia and believe this is an issue for lots of Aussie Gamers.

    Hey, I just had a really bad glitch in the single player, I was on the last mission when my PC froze. I couldn't even get the task manager to open, so I turned the computer off and rebooted. Then, when I went to finish the mission, I found that I had lost all progress, and was back at the first mission. I still have all the achievements for completing missions though.

    ZOMBIES!!!

    *1. The server setup.

    Sometimes, I will press "Find Game" and it will put me in a server, and everyone will ready up, and the counter will count all the way down to 0, but it will stay on 0 until the server is closed.

    Sometimes, I will press "Find Game" and it will put me in a server, and I will be alone, and maybe 5 seconds later, the server will close.

    Then, the most dreaded part. I will click on "Find Game" and it will tell me right off the bat, that there is no servers, and it kicks me back to the menu screen. My record is 8 in a row. I know there are servers, it is just not allowing me to go into any zombie servers, period. I usually have to shut down Black Ops and restart it, or shut down Steam and restart it. Sometimes it doesn't even work at all, and I'm blocked from Zombies all together.

    Lets just say, there is not a single zombies game happening online, does it have to kick me back to the main menu? Why not kick me back to the "Find Game" menu, instead of going ALL the way back to the "in the chair" area.

    Yes, I have been able to play Zombies, but after a game or 2, sometimes less, the Zombie Server screens just go haywire, and disallows me from playing.

    The best working way is to invite friends to my own server, which has worked fine, so far. But if I get blocked entirely, I cannot even access the option to host.

    MP has been working fine, and I've been having fun with that. But, when I want to get down on some Zombies, sometimes I have to just realize that it will not work, or connect me properly.

    I played today, and I was able to get 2 games in before the dreaded "No Servers" message showed up, and shut me out.

    Looking / glancing at the OP list...I hardly see how ANYONE in their RIGHT MIND can condemn people who are mad / angry / appalled / shocked with the Alpha gone BETA version of CoD7 PC and THEN use the excuse of "stop ******** about bugs and glitches in the game, nothing is perfect and no game comes without imperfections".

    Seriously? You call that monstrosity of "imperfections" glitches and BUGS? Are you ^%$#ing NUTS?!

    What they need to do is just recreate the game and game engine from scratch for PC because this is gonna need like a Miracle Stimulus Package Patch (MSPP) just to get the game to work at the version/quality level previous CoD games were like ON RELEASE FROM THE START. Even Bad Company 2 didn't have this BAD of a launch. People talk about other PC games being ports? ^#uk YOU...they're wrong...THIS GAME is a TRUE port in all glory. Not the other games people like to complain about when most of them run as intended technically speaking on recommended systems. If I were to pick a PC game that I thought or new was a complete straight RIP off one of the console builds...I'd pick this game.

    This list is beyond depressing because the only excellent / great thing about this game are it's sounds, gameplay / balance, and its graphics when maxed (with below stellar / expected performance). $^&#ing shame too since that is what really makes a game enjoyable, but this is an exception when you've got an authentic port or a game which COMPLETELY skipped QA. This game is essentially the INVERSE or the NEGATIVE copy of MW2.

    MW2:
    - PC specific features gone / locked
    - Gameplay / Balance of game components was horrific and simply the makings / design of a 10 year old boy's dreams
    + Renders, on recommended PC's or higher, beautifully and as smooth as packaged store-bought uncooked chicken breast

    BO:
    +? PC specific features added in (some that were promised and never included like server banners), many of which do not work properly or at all
    + Gameplay / Balance of game components is excellent and feels right...other than knife lunging and the FAMAS
    - Renders, on MOST PC's regardless of specs, horribly / inadequately / unreasonably, considering high spec machines

    Intermittent Keyboard SOME keys not working

    I've looked around and researched and even asked people in the game it seems like no one has this problem. And no it's not that I press the chat button.


    The problem is:
    If I die then respawn it might work. or maybe while i am alive it might stop.. then all of a sudden work again. but i noticed it's only certain keys.
    Sometimes i get beep beep beep noisey like the computer things I am spamming keys coming from the game I think. It's almost like the queue is full already for keys actions entered but what I press doesn't eventually happen or anything.

    The follow keys work are the affected:
    z back
    x crouch
    c prone
    y chat
    u team chat
    6 killstreak stuff
    t tactical
    g grenade
    4 flash
    Enter = use equipment

    The following keys always work:

    ctrl move left
    alt move right
    shift sprint/hold breath

    -I also have problems where the game crashes while the game is changing maps after game plays for several maps.
    -I also had problems where sometimes the graphics would go all black on the ground sides of buildings, especially inside smaller areas and guns running around shooting (which are the players, it's just they are all black kind of looks like a ninja lol)

    System specs :
    Windows 7 Ultimate
    Intel Q6600
    4GB Ram
    Ati Radeon HD 4850 w/ 1gb ram
    80gb Intel Ssd Hdd

    Any help would be greatly appreciated and improve game play for me. Thanks for your time!

    After the patch, any time I connect to a black ops server, it reboots my router.

    I am totally not kidding:

    Also, I am not crazy, and this is NOT the fault of my rotuer.  I have had this for over three years without so much as a hiccup.  This happens only when I connect to black ops servers, and it does not ever just reboot randomly.  This issues is demonstrable and easily re-createable.  This started after the release of the patch.

    I have no idea if anyone else has this issue, but figured I'd add it to the pile.

    There is a way to avoid this problem: (not the best but it worked for me)

    1> Finish the entire match
    2> Wait till the new map is loaded
    3> Wait till the prematch is done counting down and the real match begins.
    4> When the new map match begins, you can safely leave the game without loosing levels, cod points & other earned.

    Note and still bugged > When you do this you get a Loss count.
    There is no way to leave a game without gaining a loss count ?

    â—˜ Waus : Leaving the game early will count into a loss, loosing all earnings in the current game, this is also is applied when the match finished and score screen is up, it even applies the next map in the pre-match. It won't apply when the new match actually begins. -> Link ( if exists )

    Seeing now that it is Saturday the lag & fps issues have been worsened. Mostlikely due to the fact that there is more people that have bought the game and they want to play. Appearently they cannot handle the High Traffic. Wich mostlikely is the main problem right now.

    Good topic: Stating the problem helps resolve issues. The thing more hated is the haters with their short perspective of the problem. I say FU whiny kids!

    I am having a major issue. I got up to level 24 no problems and logged off. When I logged back in my level was reset to level 3. While I still had a clan tag, all the weapons and upgrades I had purchased I was unable to buy anymore. I am now back to level 22 and had hoped that by mnow Treyarch wouyld have re-set my account or patched it or something.


    It lets me buy items in the lobby but as soon as I leave they reset to where I was back on level 24. I can't buy killstreaks, weapons, attachments or anything and am starting to worry my account is completely stuffed. As it is I cannot access all the good stuff that I see everyone else runnuing around with and feel completely cheated. Despite having to grind through all of the levels again, missed opportunities afforded to other players I hope Treyacrch will rectify the situation as it has left me with a sour taste in my mouth.

    Treyarch fix it or lose a fan.

After the prestige  i played few maps till lvl 17. I tought lets buy some new weapons and stuff. What happens now is that i lost all my XP of all 5 maps. Now iam back to lvl 1. Is it my fault or why am i loosing all my xp? i dont know if its a bug or am i leaving wrong?!


    *EDIT*

    look at this picture plz http://img169.imageshack.us/img169/7323/shot0007r.jpg and check my status.-16412exp ? At this time i was lvl 8 and the game shows me taht my next lvl is 3. I found out that when i play a map till end, and leave the server when its loading a map,then iam going to loose all my xp that i gain on it,doesnt matter how long i played. I need to leave immediately when the map ends.

    â—˜ Wakko : I have heard people complain about this issue, but this is the first time I have experienced it myself.  I joined a server at prestige level 9, played for about an hour(?), made it to prestige level 16 and exited the server.  No probs.  I went into operations and create a class (as I do this I'm level 16, so it registered with Steam OUTSIDE of the server).  I modified (purchased a few upgrades etc) a class, had about $15,000 left, backed out of that specific class to go and modify a 2nd one.  As soon as I tried that it "updated" (the little grey spinny circle), and I was back at level 9 with $500 instead of $15,000 and no modifications.

    I exited the game, to see if that would allow for an update, the servers to jive, or whatever happens.  No dice, came back over an hour later and I was still level 9.  Ok, so that blew.  But whatever, nothing I can do, it'll get fixed or it won't.  So I go back into the game, level up to 10.  Leave immediately.  This time I try and buy a shotgun.  It shows up that I bought it.  Again, the game "updates" as I try to move to edit another class.  The $2k I just spent is now back in my wallet and my class still displays the old shotgun.  Try it again.  Same thing, allows me to buy it, but as soon as I exit the editing, it goes away and I get my money back.  Oh, and I experienced the worst lag I've seen in 2 days going from 9 to 10, on a server where I was pinging at less than 70.

    Game performance has been improving over the last 2 days, but it just took a HUGE step backwards on an issue that shouldn't be an issue.  This has nothing to do with my computer (which is above minimum and recommended specs for all parts).  Nothing to do with my service provider (rediculously good connection with every other game I've played in the last year).  There is something wrong with BO or Steam.

    WTF?

    When I was playing I switch on the TaskMgr to watch the system. I noticed that the avalible memory is continuing decrease while in the battle. And when loading the new map after play 1 round, there is a high possibility that I got a "uncoverable DirectX error" or got other randomly error(freezing screen etc. and sometime other running program crashed, e.g. C++ runtime error for Steam.exe). If I ran it again, it crashed randomly(same DX err or just froze) in the 1st map loading or even in the game menu in several minutes. Only after I restarted the computer I can run it again, and play 1 round it crashed again. I believe that there is a MEMORY LEAK in the game program that drain ur memory and causes a system unstablity.

    PS: I saw many people post the similar problem so I guess it's a memory leak. If u have 2GB mem or less it will happen more frequently and less frenquently when u have 4GB mem or more

    A bit more control over ranked servers.  The auto kick has to go, or at least give us the option of removing it.  Teamkills suck, but dropping napalm and killing a few of your teammates should not initiate a 5 min autoban.  Let us admin our own servers.

    Tags in last stand has issues.  Tags disappear and the player looks dead only to come back to life. 

    Not sure if clays are meant to give a click warning. 

    Not a fan of the dolphin dive.  I always hit it on accident.

    Pre-match is understandable, but the black and white makes it unplayable. 

    Accepted an invite while in a match, and the game crashed spectacularly.  Not sure it it's reproducible.

    On another note, thank you for lean and the new patch made this game pretty awesome!  It's already way better than MW2.  My E6600 was laggy, but my new Corei7 makes this game play with no lag.

    (ps on a side note: If u start flaming a guy whos camping be patient coz i know 100% i cannot hit at all anyone moving if im moving myself due to the choppiness, so dont call em noobs give them the respect they deserve at doing whats necessary to at least try to not just be cannon fodder- o Wait that what u UBETL33T guys want eveyone else is useless u are gods, fortunately games dont work that way:)

    When I play the mission before the last one (It is called reveal or something) I get taken out of the chair by Hudson and walk through the Pentagon, but when Hudson comes after me and hits me down and points his gun at me, he first is pointing at me, then he stands up and has sunglasses and an AK47 (?) and then points his gun at me again, but the cutscene does not start. I do see the subtitles playing and can see what they see but I can not see the scene and the mission never ends for me... now I can't play the last mission
    Also, the game has low affinity if you look in taskmanager (CTRL-SHIFT-ESC) which causes a lot of slowdowns, and if you set it to normal/higher/high it runs A LOT better with MUCH less lag

    some post I made, reposting it here, so OP can take the things that aren't already said and put into OP if he will.

    "don't post the same problems as people in the thread has already posted.

    my, some angry, "fix list thing" I wrote it days ago

    "how **** hard is it to patch the game with /connect (and /reconnect)?? I cant play on my server now, I should get my money (for the server) back for this ****. and, why doesn't the game remember binds? so I have to do the automatic hold breath thing everytime I wanna play sniper (no its not unfair for ppl who doesn't know it, its just one less button to care about for me)

    and the rcon tool sucks. can't say reason for kicking/banning people, can't have different console messages on different servers, the console message randomly stops a lot of times, can't choose the gamemode rotation... they should add "restart server" too. and, you should be able to see the current map/gamemode, and skip it.

    and where is the message of the day, and ingame server banners they said we would get? and why can't admins kick/ban/skip map from ingame? do I really have to quit the game to do this? **** jokes

    and the final killcam, fails too. the sniper nerf is lame, and I have never been running around quickscoping, so I dont care about that. it is SO inaccurate before you have aimed with the scope for around 3 seconds.. why not have in like cod4?? so much better.

    and the knife range is too long, just remove the lunge all together please. the "join session" friend thing doesn't work either (or is it just private games? should work on dedis too?)

    when you add a server to favorites while you are playing on it, the server won't be added..

    the dive-to-prone doesn't work when you use "go to prone". and you can't filter barebones-servers. you can with hardcore, so why not bb?

    ---
    and yeah, I really like the game otherwise. thats why I make this rage complaining thread."

    edit: when you enter the server browser, you have to wait around 10-20 seconds (at least some times) before you can join any servers. more game problems to be added soon..

    one more thing: you should be able to see the textchat/killfeed on the rcon, if thats possible to do.

    idk what fail this is, but 2/3 matches, when the playercard pops up in the upper left corner, the background doesn't show.. not the biggest fix, but still"

    edit: they should add option to remove grenade cooking and knife lunge in unranked servers, as well as add this to barebones mode.

    I have a suggestion rather than a bug fix but it needs to be fixed nonetheless. After expending your ammo for the ballistic knife the weapon automatically switches to your primary, which can be rather frustrating when your up close and trying to kill your opponent. I think the ballistic knife should be an exception to the auto switch parameters as it is meant for primarily for a melee weapon with the capabilities of a ranged weapon. that's just my two cents.

    I'm still having this problem, also after the update.
    In singIe player campaign mission 14 (revelations) I get stuck after hudson smashes you in the back.
    Some kind of bug just comes, and I keep staring at hudson, while you have to get like another flashback.
    Help ?

    Also, I am one of the lucky people who haven't had many, if any, problems with my computer and black ops working together. There is one thing however, I am curious if other people are experiencing this or if it's just me. Somewhat often, I'll lose connection for about a second and a half then just return right back to the game. Just a blank space in my lagometer afterward.

    This is a very boring video to watch but what I was trying to show is the constant stalls, first by moving around in a room with nothing going on to cause the stalls, then outside with lots going on.   Playing the game at 1920 x 1080 4x AA and auto settings, I get 45 to 60 fps except during the stalls.  While recording with Fraps frame rates dropped as expected to 25 to 40 fps.  In all fairness, during game play the stalls are not nearly as long as they are in the video they only last long enough to piss you off.  MP is exactly the same but the stalls are shorter in duration.  Reducing everything to low settings including my desktop resolution, does gain some fps but not nearly as much as you should and all that does is shorten the duration of the stalls and looks like dog crap.  So first link is the video and second link is my system stats.

    In campaign mode in lvl 14 (revelation stage) you run into a room where you get punched by the guy (Hudson) who you punched yourself at the start of the mission, and then a cut scene with Viktor Reznov comes on. It then goes onto showing Hudson once more then he points a gun at me and then he freezes. I can still pause the game, restart the level etc but it constantly does the same thing. Also, it is only him that freezes as the background is still animated so the screens behind him are still working and so is the sound.

    To better demonstrate where I am getting stuck, I have found a video of the level. I am experiencing my problem at 7:21

    Not sure if this has been posted but sometimes the game just gives you random persk in multiplayer. I had a setup with a Dragunov with a tac knife side arm, scavenger pro, sleight of hand pro and hacker pro. When I logged in to a server it showed in the select a class menu that this is what my class contained, but when I get in game I have an L96, marathon, steady aim and light weight with an RPG as a side arm.

    It took several log outs and in before it finally corrected itself. Have had several friends tell me that they've gone in to games to find perks that they have not selected set up etc and weapons they did not choose in their load outs.

    I can't belive this hasn't already been mentioned. It's incredibly annoying and common.

    Call od Duty: Black ops servers are unavailible error. This links you to the site that has nothing to do with the error.

    My friend had the same error and it just totally randomly fixed, so i have the idea that it's caused by server traffic. But it stops me from going online alltogether, and i can't get anything but singleplayer from this game until it's fixed, so please don't ignore it.

    Sniper headshots survivable with the suppressor attachment in place, even at point-blank range. No exception, even on the big L96.

    "Friends" tab on server listing does not work aka it doesn't show any friends online playing games.
    "Favorites" tab on server listing does not save servers even if you use the "add to favorites" button in game.

    Can't invite friends through Steam or join a friends game through Steam.

    No way to join a specific server or add a specific server to your favorites.

    Server browser doesn't list all servers. The most I can get it to show is about 120 servers.

    not all bugs but....

    - Need to change Profilename in steam if ur in a clan or whatever, would be easyer to just add a ingame name?
    - If closing multiplayer 9/10 the process keeps going in task manager
    - Ingame Admin panel would be nice
    - Changing resolution makes game crash
    - Waiting for players before actual game starts in  ranked servers... plz remove u can play a match with 2 people too, especially at night we only got    like 4 people playing on our server but we can't get XP and the game is Black/white (Worst thing ever)
    - Admins on server get kicked out for inactivity (We should decide when a player gets kicked)
    - Add Spectator mode (If players spectate that they go out of a team.
    - Servers don't show up in serverlist, i own servers but i need someone who can see and enter it invite me.
    - Add option to skip movies in singleplayer.
    - Fonts in friendlist are way to big need to scroll for ages if ya wanna invite/... friends... COD:WaW had a nice friendlist!
    - Add IP in favorites
    - Add /connect through console
    - Add Next Map and Change to Gametype to RCONtool, those playlists are a pain!
    - Message Rotation Saved in servercfg, why we have to keep rcontool running for that??

    You can invite them in game though... hit "escape", go to "friends", then pick the friend and hit "invite to game". But first FIND A SAFE SPOT! :p

    1 - I don't think that this can be a bug.
    2 - That could be a booster match :P , for that exist the private matches.
    3 - The movies actually are preloaders, yeah, they are.
