BO Combat Training Patch v7 FULL RELEASE
Hey its been awhile. After 2 and a half years, here is BO Combat Training Patch v7. It offers basically nothing for the vast majority of you. But since the fix that facilitated this version was created, I will be able to work on this project again. I will be looking to add DLC support for the next version as this was something many of you have been requesting for a long time.
In the meantime, if you are one of the few dinosaurs left like me still rockin' Windows XP, good news! I was able to rebuild the launcher so that it works in Windows XP.
An interesting fact that most people don't know about games ported to the PC platform during the 7th generation is that some of them run better in Windows XP, and Black Ops is one of them. It turns out an optimization issue related to HAL (Hardware Abstraction Layer) is the cause and results in roughly half the CPU performance when running in Windows Vista or newer. Since Black Ops is primarily a GPU bounded game, this issue does not cause a large impact for most people. But if you are CPU limited, I highly recommend that you run Black Ops in Windows XP as it will offer a substantial boost in performance.
PLEASE NOTE: This version of the BO Combat Training Patch is designed only for the original SK1DR0W release of Black Ops (ISO 7.28 GB). This will not work correctly with other versions of the game. Read the included instructions carefully.
