Call of Duty: Black Ops

- Dx11 Fix via DgVoodoo -




Here's a fix I doubt anyone was waiting for, but was on my bucket list for quite a long time, which made it a perfect candidate to test DgVoodoo's Dx9 to Dx11 functionality. Fortunately, it worked like a treat, it somehow even fixed the broken shadows all on it's own! I must say, this still actually looks very nice for a 7 year old game (which is surprising since games that go for a more realistic look usually don't hold up all that well), although performance wasn't quite as buttery smooth as I thought it might be (playing at 1440P with everything maxed, mind you) which I'm not certain if that was due to additional overheard from DgVoodoo + 3DMigoto, or if the fact the visuals were as good as they are, and still somewhat demanding. Anyways, the campaign in this game sure is a mind-f*** that is well worth experiencing.

3D Fix Summary


Game Engine: IW 3.0

Fixed Issues:
-Lighting & shadows
-Skyboxes

User Interface Features:
-Cyclable HUD depth
-Automatic convergence presets for: ADS

Not Fixed/Remaining Issues:
-There was a single mission while in a helicopter where sun reflections on the water are broken. Everywhere else they were fine. Looked at the shader and decided it was not worth my time for such a short mission to spend my time trying to fix it.



Instructions


1. Load the game and set your resolution to your preference and refresh rate to 119Hz.

2. Download fix: CoDBo Fix with DgVoodoo files included  or  CoDBo fix files standalone
