R6: Black Ops downloading/installation issues

Postby hbou102 » Tue Sep 24, 2019 12:22 am

Hey all. I'm having trouble understanding how to get this game up and running. I have Windows 10 and I know I need to install the separate patch but I'm struggling to understand how to set the whole thing up in the first place. After downloading the game all I'm getting is an ACDSee 9.0 RAR file that comes up blank whenever I open it. It also tells me that the source data format is not recognized at the bottom left of the screen. Can anybody give me a rundown on what steps I need to take or if something's not right? I cant find anything else pertaining to the download and I'm not really that tech savvy so I don't want to mess anything up. Thanks in advance! :)

For a start, get either WinRAR or 7zip (or both) :| Also replace ACDSee entirely with either XnView or IrfanView (they're far better today) - and BTW never use them for opening archives, it's not their primary purpose :omg:

I'm still using ACDSee 32 v2.3 (from 1998!) on my Windows 7 computer and it works fine and has all the functions I need.

WinRar did the trick! I'm trying to get this to run on Windows 10 but I have everything I need installed so I'm pretty sure I can figure the rest out. It'll be nice to be able to play this again after nearly a decade haha. Thanks again! :D
