Possible Fix For The Black Ops 1.04 Patch [PS3]
I’m not sure where to start with this whole patch drama. Treyarch said the 1.04 patch would reduce the connection problems, but boy were they wrong. The PS3 section of the official Call of Duty forums is taking Treyarch under fire. But not all is lost!
Believe it or not, there is good news. At least for some as this solution doesn’t work for everyone. The solution was placed on the forum by stlcardinal9sr and this is what he wrote:
In the XMB delete your game save data and game data utility for Black Ops, all of your online stats will still be there, you will lose single player stats though, I decided to check this and found that the patch actually loaded into game save data and not where it should have in GAME DATA UTILITY…After deleting and redownloading everything works like it should!!!!
Steps to do this:
1. in the XMB under games where you would click on the disk to load black ops scroll up to where it says saved data utility.
2. delete this data, what will happen is you will lose all of your campaign progress and on your custom classes you will lose whatever you have named them but all of your classes will be the same and no online progress will be lost. just rename them
3. scroll up a little more to game data utility and click it and delete the black ops data, you will NOT lose any online progress.
4. now go reload the game up and it will require you to redownload the patch and you should be up and running.
While applying this solution, please keep 1 thing in mind. If the host of the match has not corrected this problem you can still have issues. The more people who correct this, the less issues people will have. So please make sure that you spread the word so that you and other PS3 users can enjoy Black Ops.
If you apply this solution, could you please leave a comment and tell us whether it worked or not?
