11-13-12: Initial release.
11-21-12: Fixed mediafire link
So you got the Skidrow copy of black ops 2, and you are trying to play single player, and it doesn’t load?
- Install beta nvidia drivers if you have nvidia graphics card here.
- Now install the timezone fix included here. Extract it to your black ops 2 folder.
- Play and have fun!
Update on 11-14-12:
Note: Today I tried to play the game and it crashed to a black screen, so I could never start the game. If you roll back your date to 11-13-12, the game works! Try it!
It’s finally here. I haven’t tested it myself yet, but the good guys at alteriw.net, the same guys that brought to you dedicated server support for call of duty black ops now has released what I think is a beta version of the dedicated server for Call of Duty – Black Ops.
Now I haven’t tried this myself yet personally, and there are specific rules in regards how to get the dedicated server package. Once I have tried the solution myself, then I will post my own tutorial here. For the meantime, you can read the guide at the alterops.net forum here.
Update: I just tried to make some friendly posts today, and maybe because I posted too much (3 replies) within a 10 minute time span, and apparently this was considered spamming. Right now my username is banned, which is extremely frustrating since I had the account since basically May of 2010. If you are able to get into alterops, let me know the result of your findings and gameplay experience. Thanks!

Important Personal Message From Versatile:
Guys, I know there are a lot of you out there searching the Internet like mad for a GOOD guide that shows you how to play multiplayer online without using IWnet. As of today (11/14/09), there is a fix to play spec op co-op online, but not the real multiplayer portion. Once new information comes up, this guide will be updated.
Also, it is very important that this guide is for legitimate uses only. Piracy will not be tolerated in any shape or form. If something is written or found out of line, it will be corrected ASAP. We (The Underground Staff) do not want a WordPress suspension. We will not be offering links to “cracks” or obvious game executables. There are legitimate users out there who want to play offline co-op for legitimate purposes. This guide is for them.
If you have a question or specific problem that lies outside this scenario, then we will deal with it at that point in time. Please understand my good intentions. Modern Warfare 2 is a great game, and the co-op (and hopefully soon to be online multiplayer) will rock your socks off. ~ Versatile
If you are a gamer, you will know that today is huge because Call of Duty Modern Warfare 2 has been released. Reviews have been high for the Xbox 360 and PS3, and it is no surprise that some PC gamers are giving it low scores.
Here are some quick reasons why PC gamers got screwed:
- 16 maps. The max amount of players on any map is 9v9.
- No dedicated server support. Infinity Ward’s IWNet protocol controls everything. This means no mods and no customizations whatsoever.
- No console. You can’t even kick people.
This is just the tip of the iceberg. If you search Google News right now for Modern Warfare 2, there are thousands of headlines on this.
One headline that really got my sight was this one: ” Modern Warfare 2 Shunned by Several Digital Distributors Due to Steam ‘Trojan Horse’.
What does that even mean? If you bought this game retail from the store, you are FORCED to install Steam in order to play this game. The Steam protocol ensures your game is updated, anti-hacked, and everything else that comes with it.
Per Direct 2 Drive, an online distributor, they will not carry this game because of the inclusion of the Steam client. Below is their statement:
“We believe strongly that when you buy a game from us, you shouldn’t be forced to install and run a 3rd party software client to be able to play the game you purchased,” D2D explains in a statement masquerading as a listing for Modern Warfare 2 in its store. A representative later told Kotaku “We don’t believe games should force the user to install a Trojan Horse.” Source
What makes it worse is that if you had pre-ordered the game on Steam, you will have to wait until November 12, Thursday to play the game! What is even more hilarious is that if you went out to the store and bought the game instead, you will be playing it online right now. The retail version of the game also has Steam, so it makes absolutely no sense why pre-order purchasers are getting screwed over right now.
This signifies that DRM is not all it is cracked to be, and even innocent gamers are getting punished. With no dedicated server support on PC side, it is expected the game is going to be released online via torrents and some hacker group will figure out a way to mod the game and get dedicated server support going. It is just a matter of time.
Read more about the Steam debacle here.
It goes to show that Steam is not always welcomed, and when you have to tie gamer’s hands behind their back and force them to use a 3rd party client against their will, it makes you wonder if it is even worth the purchase.
Let’s face it, it is going to be huge. Analysts are predicting it will make somewhere around $500 million during launch week, which isn’t even bad at all!
There will be many stores with the midnight launch: Best Buy, Meijers, Gamestop, and etc. Are you going to get your game on launch day? In fact, some stores have sold it early and that is why there are a bunch of gameplay videos on Youtube. In fact, the game had been leaked on Xbox 360 per torrents a week early, so people have been playing it since then. Now the real thing will be here. Are you ready for what could potentially be Game of the Year again?
And who could forget the very controversial level where you are a terrorist in an airport and your goal is to take out civilians? Infinity Ward sure knows how to bring up controversy.
What is even more controversial is the loss of dedicated servers for the PC version. Tons of gamers have fouled outrcry against it, fearing that this does not give them modding capabilities and less control over their games. Infinity Ward begs to differ, but we all know this is their own secretive way to charge for DLC content in the future.
Nonetheless, Modern Warfare 2 so far seems to live up to the hype!
Below is a badass video where if you get 25 kill streak, you get a tactical nuke that wipes everyone off the map and equals instant win!

Foreword: I am very excited. This is definitely one of my favorite posts for 2009, and as you read further, you will understand why. This guide is clearly not illegal. It is simply another method to enable users to play their LAN enabled games over the Internet with friends. No longer are you bound to be in the basement with your PCs to play LAN games! There is a reason why I spent two long nights working on this guide and the excellent video! ~ Versatile
If you follow this blog, or know anything about VPN programs, Hamachi is a great program that people can use to play LAN games with each other. In short, Hamachi was the king for implementing LAN games to play over the Internet. How it worked is people would join these networks, and Hamachi gives each user a unique IP address. When you launch a game, the game is tricked into thinking that everyone in the network is on the same LAN, and hence, you can see each other to play the game.
Of course, Hamachi has other useful purposes such as being a great secure chat medium, as well as being an alternative as a safe VPN to tunnel into your PCs and transfer files or encrypt remote transfers or remote administration.
