I was wondering if there was a way to play Black Ops on PC without having to put in your CD every time or keep it in the drive WITHOUT having to use Steam.
Bad Company 2 and even Battlefield 2 has been patched to no longer require the DVD, and I was hoping that Black Ops would have the same thing. I'm at a point where my disc drive is hardly ever used on my PC.
Also: does BO have an automatic updated for patches if you install without Steam?
You can't install without steam unless its pirate. You don't need the disk in drive when you open the game through steam. --- From: St0Ne4Ge | #004 Yeah dont be drama queen, APB isn't going to be shut down or anything.
Erm ... pretty sure you can't run this game without Steam (unless you're trying to run a pirated version!) ... and the CD is definitely NOT required in the drive when playing. --- You, you, and you - Panic! The rest of you, come with me.
You DONT need to play this game using a DVD ! Remember this game is a steam game which means your retail disc will turn into a simply back up disc after you activated your game to your steam account using the serial key. I have the retail version and once I installed the game and registered the serial key to my account there was no need for the disc anymore playing this.
