Hello. I'm from Russia. I bought Call of Duty: Black Ops II at 2nd January in Russian shop and couldn't change the language of game. At the end of September I bought DLC "Vengeance" in Steam and paid by Webmoney. After this I couldn't launch game with text "Error during initialization:
Could not load default asset 'fonts/720/consolefont' for asset type 'font'.
Tried to load asset 'fonts/720/consoleFont'." (http://i.imgur.com/1K1MQwQ.png).
I was searching for reason of that error and found it. The reason of error is English language of game after buying DLC that added the function to change the language of game in Steam and English version had error with some font. I changed language to Russian and game fixed and launched. But few weeks later I wanted to change language of game to English to play with better text and voice because Russian text and voice leaves much to be desired... But I again seen that error and game couldn't launch. Please, can you help me? Or I will be able to play BOII with Russian language only?
It appears youll only be able to play in Russian. This is definately a weird glitch, havent heard of this before.
Try to validate the game cache files, it seems you are either missing files or have corrupted files and this should fix it.
To validate the files right click Black Ops 2 multiplayer on Steam library and click properties > local files > verify integrity of game cache.
Matuzz, it didn't help. This error is still appear when I launch this game even after validating files.
