Activision's Social Media Manager Wants Bugs in Call of Duty: Black Ops Reported; Asks for Civility

By Xav de Matos, Nov 09, 2010 11:50am PST Dan "One of Swords" Amrich recommends keeping a level head in the face of any issues you may encounter during your experience with Call of Duty: Black Ops. We think that's some sound advice after witnessing the horror of some owners during last night's midnight launch.

On his blog, Activision's social media manager suggested that any real-world problems--disc not reading, missing components--be reported on the Activision customer support page.

For in-game issues, specifically finding or encountering bugs within the game, Amrich recommends posting a detailed account of the errors on the official Call of Duty message board.

Of course, Amrich recommends being polite when reporting issues. Other than being the civilized thing to do, it makes it easier to pinpoint the problems. "Insults in all caps might make you feel better, but it makes it tougher to get to the useful stuff," Amrich notes. It's a great point and we certainly hope the gaming world will take heed.

What are your first impressions of Call of Duty: Black Ops? Have you encountered any bugs?

  • I seemed to fix this last night by editing the CFG and adding 2 lines.

    seta r_multiGpu "0"
    seta r_multithreaded_device "1"

    I noticed that by default it sets this to multigpu 1 and multithread 0 - most everyone has more than one core so the multithread needs to be set to 1. and unless you're running SLI or cross fire multi gpu should be set to 0.

    One odd thing to note is, after i set these in the config - and loaded the game i noticed it set them back to the old settings. After adding the lines to your CFG you can now change these settings from the console, so change them back to how it should be. Quit the game, restart and like magic no more stutter...

    I know it's BS that we have to trouble shoot this our selves but this 100% fixed my lag, and i tried it with some random - and it solved his problem as well. Hope this helps if you have any questions feel free to email me at and ill try to help you out. peace.
