    Foxhound-Pro

      Patch Notice

      The latest patch was distributed on 11/17/2012.

      Goal of the Thread

      - Collect information regarding the console freezing/locking.

      - Create reproducible steps if possible.

      - Document individual cases.

      Notice: Do not intentionally put your console at risk. If this occurs, then please report it here.
      Notice: Posts that deviate from the below will be removed.

       

      We need you to recount what happened when you encounter a freeze or temporary lock up. This is not a server lock up which is currently defined by the community as matchmaking failing to balance teams or displaying an error within your session.

       

      Mandatory Information to Include

      - What type of PS3 do you have.

      - Any user modifications to your console.

      - When and where does this happen.

      - What region you are in + Blu-Ray Code

       

       

      Optional Information to Include

      - Any video of the documented issue.

      - If you have opened up a support ticket with Activision Customer Support [Yes or No]

       

       

      Example

      I've attempted the system restore.

      I've installed the texture files.

      I have an SSD in place of an HDD.

       

      1. I'm prompted with a patch.
      2. I load up. (I have load to MP selected)
      3. I enter matchmaking.
      4. I attempt to play a game.
      5. We get through the game.
      6. The final killcam happens.
      7. Freeze

       

      Please understand that this example is not to be entirely accurate or representative of your issues. It's just a mock up.

       

      Anything we consider off topic or unhelpful will be deleted. This is a problem solving thread. Not a complaints platform.

          It's a common thing to report a problem. Unfortunately, by itself, it's not always that helpful.

           

          In order for us to help you successfully, we need to know what happened, but also what you are doing.

           

          If you want to be super helpful, you will help us find what we call a "repro." That means if you do the same exact steps the same exact [problem] happens.

           

          In order for any software developer to find and fix issues, we need to reproduce the problem in the development environment.

           

          Not everyone has an issue with the PS3 freezing. I'm a paltry level 10, but have not frozen once.

           

          We need to find exactly and specifically what causes the freeze.

           

          Is it accepting an invite? Are you in parties? Did your host migrate?


          Details are everything when trying to identify and fix issues.

                  - What type of PS3 do you have.120GB Slim


                  - Any user modifications to your console.  No


                  - When and where does this happen.

                  When trying to play tranzit mode in zombies and sometimes  in any zombies match


                  - What region you are in + Blu-Ray Code UK:BLES-01717


                  Each time i crash i never get asked to submit a report

                  • 6. Re: PS3: Tracking hard lock/freeze information. [Post 1.03 Patch]

                    - What type of PS3 do you have : First model, 60 GB HDD

                    - Any user modifications to your console : No    

                    - When and where does this happen : It happens everywhere. When I start up the game, IF the game have started it can freeze during the welcome movies. If I get past the movies, it freezes when I select Multiplayer in the menu. IF I get past all this, sometimes it freezes when loading 1st, 2nd or 3rd match. If the loading works fine, you can bet your money that it will freeze either during the match or when the matchlobby is trying to load after the match is over... All of these are hard freezes that will require a reboot. I have had to sessions where everything worked fine, and I was able to play several matches and finally turned off the console as usual when done..

                    - What region you are in + Blu-Ray Code : I live in Norway, don't know how to get the BD code.

                     

                    I have opened a ticket with the support on chat. First I waited for 2 hours to start the chat, and we tried different ways to fix the problem, none of them worked. I was told that my ticket was sent to the superiors of the person I was talking to. And that I would get a email with sollutions within 1 day. This was on the 15th and I have still not got any response. I have also entered new information and asked for an answer, but still.. No response..

                     

                    Since the game refuses to start a few of the times I try, I suspect that it is the CD itself that is the problem. I am also afraid that I will break my console if I continue to do all these hard reboots..

                        • Wired Internet connection

                        When my console freezes

                        1. Turn On my PS3
                        2. Log into my PSN account
                        3. Select COD BO II from the game menu (ps3 XMB)
                        4. I see the call of duty black ops II logo appear in the lower right hand corner
                        5. I freeze
                        6. I have to turn the power off to my PS3 to reboot it

                         

                        when i take the steps above i freeze up 100% of the time

                         

                        Another Scenario

                         

                        1. Turn my Ps3 on
                        2. select COD BO II from the XMB game menu
                        3. AT the Main Menu select MultiPlayer
                        4. Connect to the Playstation Netwotk
                        5. Select Play Online from the Multiplayer Menu
                        6. wait while it tries to connect to the servers
                        7. screen goes black for a second then i am returned to the MultiPlayer main menu
                        8. get an error msg that reads Black OP II servers are not avaliable
                        9. I give up and and decide to play the campaign or zombie mode
                        10. I select Main Menu from the multiplayer main menu screen
                        11. I see the call of duty BO II logo in the lower right hand corner
                        12. My system freezes up
                        13. I have to turn the power off to reboot the ps3

                         

                         

                        This will lock my PS3 up 100% of the time

                         

                        The Multi Player  version number i see when doing the second scenario is either 22.0.-1 or 22.0.-4

                         

                        My system freezes are only happening if i am connected to the Playststion Network  so i know its a communication of data problem somewhere

                        here is my

                        Internet Info ......maybe that will be helpful
