So I have Black Ops 2 clean install on Steam, and I recently installed Redacted (today, in fact) in hopes of trying some new DLC maps out (I can't afford any but that's not the point anyhow). I did as instructed on several videos and got to launch the mod/crack itself. I got as far as to the loading screen before everything froze and I continuously got this in the console: 12327 | DBG | ID_UNCONNECTED_PONG from ourselves 12337 | DBG | Was sent from GUID 90072165025358688 12346 | DBG | Data is Offline Ping Data I saw a reply having the same issue, but forgot where exactly I saw it, and as far as I know there was no answer to the reply. I tried several things, from OfflineMode 1 and 0 to setting the HostIP in master to 127.0.0.1. Any help is appreciated! :s Edit: I figured out that the issue was not quite my expectation. I replaced the original BO2 files in Steam's 'common' directory, and then I could load in vanilla maps without freezing (and I can now play). However, DLC maps still don't work. DLC camos do work, however.
