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?

Oh man, if only I had thought to use Google before posting on a forum. :roll:

But that's so much more work.

I appreciate the help.

You can't install without steam unless its pirate. You don't need the disk in drive when you open the game through steam.

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.

Thanks for the help guys, first straight answer I've received.

I was under the impression that you could do with or without Steam... only games I know that require Steam are ValvE but no matter. I appreciate it!

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.

COD uses steam cloud to store players levels and unlocks. I believe all steam cloud games require steam, like MW2.
