View Full Version : Black Ops PC - Box won't open

Hey guys, I've been having trouble with something the last two days. I pre-ordered the PC version and picked it up at Wal-Mart, so all was good then.

I got back home, and excitedly tried to open the box. Guys, this box just won't open. I used a knife, scissors, even ridicule to try to get the thing open, but it won't budge.

Do you guys have any fixes? Here are my scissor and knife specs:

Scissor:
Blue and Black handle (Rubber coated)

Knife:
8 inch steel knife (steak knife)
Textured plastic black handle.

If you guys don't have any fixes, when will Activision/Treyarch be fixing this problem? I really want to play guys!

Yea this is a known bug on the Preorderd version
Treyarch said they will be patching this ASAP so dont worry xD

Btw your Specs doesn't seem to meet the minimum requirements so i suggest picking up some Heavy Duty Scissors or a good Meat Cleaver to do the job right.

Ah and don't forget to update their drivers like "Sarge945" suggested.

Yes, but MW2's Box was optimized.
Black Ops has no optimization and requires better specs to open.

Sharpen the knife yourself, if the box won't work was you want it, change some of the settings to make it work.

My box opens perfect now

You need to open the desk drawer and take out a pen. Not any kind of pens but the one that lets you write on plastic. Then you find the PGrating area of the box and you write on top of it:
This game will not make me kill kittens in real life / this game will not make me fling poo at my neighbours / where are my razors
After that you need to put the box back into the sleeve. Wait a few min and the take it out again and try opening it.

First off, make sure you are holding the box upside down. That is a common mistake when opening this certain box.

Next you MUST have a ceiling fan (a small stand alone fan with the guard off may work, but be warned not tested.)

Take the box AGAIN, upside down, ...and throw it soft enough to just tip the bottom onto the fan blade and the disc should not only fall out of the box but the plastic case inside.

IF you think you are a professional, open up the cup holder on your computer and jump off the couch/chair/whatever available, and drop kick the disc onto the cup holder.

This is tricky, I had my box bug out on me too.

Here's what I did, and it worked:

- Get some candles
- Get a pimp
- Light the candles
- Kill the pimp
- Eat skittles
- Drink 3 bottles of coke while eating the skittles

The box should open if you belch while you open it after eating skittles and drinking coke.

Good luck.

You really need to upgrade, I can't believe you are using an 8 inch knife to try to open a box nowadays.

Hmm... Maybe you forgot the combination for the box lock? It's a 25 digit number. It should be right on the Black Ops logo.

If that doesn't work, take a hammer and pound the box till it's squishy. Then cook it on 120 degrees celsius for 20 minutes. And THAT'S how you make a pie.

Scissor:
Blue and Black handle (Rubber coated)

Oh man, next time please read the minimal opening requirements BEFORE you make the purchase. How hard is it to understand that blue and black handles are NOT supported by Treyarch game boxes. The rubber coating is a good beginning but I see no success in the future if you aren't remotely close to switching to dual neon-green handles.

Maybe you should have invested in some hardcore high-end Alienware scissors like I did. At least I know what I'm doing, buying pre-built and extremely expensive elite kitchen hardware all of you can only dream about.

Just look at this piece of beauty:

Sindrio 11-10-2010, 09:34 AM If anyone is good at such things as opening boxes the answer would have already been here! But obviously no one even know the meaning of "Opening a box". Try a fork instead. The fork will do the job pretty much by itself once you open the drawer wich contain the fork. But if this dont do the job, try a spoon. More work, cus you have to do things manually but this will most likely solve it. Give us some feedback if and when you open the box!

•Make sure that you meet the minimum system requirements.

•Make sure that you have the latest video and sound drivers from the manufacturer's website. Links to common video and sound manufacturer websites are listed below:

Video:
ATI
Nvidia

Sound:
Creative Sound Blaster
Realtek Onboard Audio
Dell Audio Drivers
HP Audio Drivers
Asus Xonar

•Set your desktop to a resolution of 1024x768, 32 bit True Color.

For Windows XP
1) Right-click on your desktop and select Properties.
2) Click the Settings tab.
3) Set your screen area to 1024x768.
4) Set the colors to Highest (32 bit).
5) Click Apply and OK.

For Windows Vista\Windows 7
1) Right-click on your desktop and select Personalize.
2) Click on Display Settings
3) Set the resolution slider to 1024X768
4) Set the colors to Highest (32 bit).
5) Click Apply and OK.

•All background applications should be shut down prior to running the game.

1) Go to the Start bar and select Run. (If you are on Vista or Windows 7, hit the Windows key and the R key at the same time)
2) In the Run window, type in msconfig and hit enter.
3) Once the utility comes up, go to the Startup tab and hit the Disable All button.
4) Next go to the Services tab and check the “Hide All Microsoft Services” checkbox and then hit the Disable All button.
5) Hit the OK button and close the utility, and restart your computer when prompted to.

Please note that this method will shut down all background applications including your virus scanning software. If later on you decide you want to re-enable programs that were closed down, you can undo these changes by simply un-checking the Hide all Microsoft Services box and hitting Enable All on both the mentioned tabs.

The Windows OS allows you to have lots of different programs running at the same time. Sometimes these programs do not play happily together and create problems. Many modern games are very demanding on your computer. Some game problems can be solved by making sure that the game is the only program on the field. Limiting the number of other applications and programs running can help your system and program performance across the board, not with just games. Virus scanning and other security programs often use a large amount of memory and access the files on your harddrive frequently. This frequent harddrive access can slow your computer down if these programs are running in the background while the game is running. You should shut down as many programs as possible to lower the amount of memory being used before you launch the game. For Windows XP your system should only be using about 100 to 120 MB of memory before launching the game. For Windows Vista or Windows 7 that number should be around 700 to 1000 MB. You can check the amount of memory being used by clicking on the Performance tab in the Task Manager.

Once you complete the steps above then your system is ready to run the game. These steps can clear up a lot of problems you may be experiencing. Your performance may also increase because you have more memory free and more resources are available to the game. Not only can this make games run more smoothly, but applications can benefit from this, as well.

•Turn your sound acceleration down for Windows XP
1) Click the Start button > Settings > Control Panel.
2) Double-click the Sounds and Audio Devices icon.
3) Click the Volume tab.
4) Under Speaker settings, click the Advanced button.
5) Click the Performance tab.
6) Reduce the Hardware acceleration to Basic, the 2nd notch from the left.
7) Click Apply and then OK 2 times. Run the game now. Don't forget to turn the acceleration back up to restore the high-end features for your sound card when using other applications.

you have to switch the slider on your knife to maximum other wise you'll just get noclipping issues, also make sure all your knife strokes have Vsync or you might framelag and cut the game.

also in the future post you dxiag.knif configuration

not all brands are compatible with packing support.

- Putting it in a oven or a microwave

- Dancing and eroticly licking it
- Make the box erect a dispenser, then it will want to open itself.

Have you used a needle yet? If not, poke a few holes in the box, you need to let the disc breathe first, then gently pry it open with a crowbar. Its what I did, got it first try!

Hey guys, I've been having trouble with something the last two days. I pre-ordered the PC version and picked it up at Wal-Mart, so all was good then.

I got back home, and excitedly tried to open the box. Guys, this box just won't open. I used a knife, scissors, even ridicule to try to get the thing open, but it won't budge.

Do you guys have any fixes? Here are my scissor and knife specs:

Scissor:
Blue and Black handle (Rubber coated)

Knife:
8 inch steel knife (steak knife)
Textured plastic black handle.

If you guys don't have any fixes, when will Activision/Treyarch be fixing this problem? I really want to play guys!

We will look today at what you need in order to make a nuclear fission bomb. You need some money, as it would really help

if you were the prince, sultan or other royalty of a small, but rich state. If not, you need to know on a first name basis some evil leader with lots of cash, oil, diamonds and so on, of a small but ambitious country, with a need for revenge on the world.

Step 1 - What is a nuclear fission bomb?

Fission bombs derive their power from nuclear fission, where heavy nuclei (uranium or plutonium) are bombarded by neutrons and split into lighter elements, more neutrons and energy. These newly liberated neutrons then bombard other nuclei, which then split and bombard other nuclei, and so on, creating a nuclear chain reaction which releases large amounts of energy. These are historically called atomic bombs, atom bombs, or A-bombs, though this name is not precise due to the fact that chemical reactions release energy from atomic bonds (excluding bonds between nuclei) and fusion is no less atomic than fission. Despite this possible confusion, the term atom bomb has still been generally accepted to refer specifically to nuclear weapons and most commonly to pure fission devices.

No you need to meet the recommended specs to open a box like BlackOps.

Recommended Requirements

CanOpener(manual, automatics don't work)
Blood of 79 Virgins(Important- this is what you offer to Bobby Kotick)
Pentagram drawn in chalk.
13 Candles arranged around the pentagram in a dark room.

After you're setup have the blood in a bowl, offer praise to Kotick, dip the box in and go at it with the CanOpener. Should pop right open. The requirements to actually play the game enjoyably are another matter.

01-29-2011, 08:15 AM
SOLVED:

Here are the steps that Activision recommends;

1. Uninstall the box from your hand.
2. Lay box on ground behind your house.
3. Pick up a tomahawk.
4. Go outside.
5. Throw tomahawk at an 85 degree angle over your roof.
6. Make sure you hit a light pole or antenna.
7. Tomahawk will bounce 3 times then slide across the ground.
8. Tomahawk will continue to rotate until it reaches box.
9. Tomahawk opens box and disk flys out.

Good Luck!

The one from walmart does not work. I tried it myself. You need to actually start your lawn mower and position your lawn mower over the box, if the mower jams up, repeat the process until the box opens up.

WARNING!! Using a torch to open the box may result in the exposure of bugs!

Wow, so no one has any idea how to open the box? Down to me yet again.

You will need.
A time machine (should be spawning to your left as you read this)
£12.14 in change
A pair of sunglasses.

First off, use the time machine to travel forward in time to around 3047. Flag down a passing hover taxi, Ask to go to a laser weapon shop (of which their should be many), pay using the £12.14 in change.

Put on the sunglasses you brought with you (Note, you shouldn't be wearing them between the time machine and the taxi drive, if you have you have proberby been ambushed and are now dead.) Walk a few meters and someone should offer you a gazillian credits for your sunglasses (make sure you get a gazillian at least) accept the offer, look at the person in the black suit outside the shop. Pop into the laser weapon shop and buy the following in the following order.

Laser pistol 202nd generation.
4 battery packs.
Two packets of crisps.
A lunch box.
Tactical nuclear laser device.
A hat.
Sporting results mag from the year 2011.
USP skin for Laser pistol 202nd generation.

Put the laser pistol, the sporting results mag and the battery packs into the lunchbox. Put the hat on. Walk outside, talk to the man in the black suit. He will ask for your hat. Decline his first offer, he will then offer you a time machine, accept the offer and send that time machine back to the year you came from. Eat one of the packets of crisps and use the time machine you started with to travel to 2010. Hand the guy in the jacket the sporting results mag and the tactical nuclear laser device, travel back to your year, use the usp skin on the laser pistol (box will refuse to open if its not used) Use the pistol to open the box.

I heard upgrading and spending $500.00 will make the box open like it should. Order your scissors from Newegg (http://www.newegg.com/Product/ProductList.aspx?Submit=ENE&DEPA=0&Order=BESTMATCH&Description=scissors&x=0&y=0). Install the upgrade and it will work. BudBrownie 01-29-2011, 05:44 PM lol at who bumped this post, id rep u, but im 2lazy to see who bumped it. You seriously epic fail in life if you can't open a cheap plastic case. Nomadski 01-29-2011, 05:56 PM My box opened fine, therefore there is no problem. =UAL=Shock&Awe 01-29-2011, 08:44 PM You have to use the Butcher's Cleaver from Diablo in order to open the box. :p dicobalt 01-29-2011, 08:47 PM You need to upgrade to a quad core box cutter. lobstrosity 01-29-2011, 08:49 PM I think the simple solution would be to somehow bring the box itself to the center of Nuketown and simply let the raining grenades from hell open it up for you. Kittehs! 01-29-2011, 08:53 PM Stick a plaster on the box - it may help you patch the problem. DeadCrayon 01-29-2011, 09:45 PM Wow, so no one has any idea how to open the box? Down to me yet again. You will need. A time machine (should be spawning to your left as you read this) £12.14 in change A pair of sunglasses. First off, use the time machine to travel forward in time to around 3047. Flag down a passing hover taxi, Ask to go to a laser weapon shop (of which their should be many), pay using the £12.14 in change. Put on the sunglasses you brought with you (Note, you shouldn't be wearing them between the time machine and the taxi drive, if you have you have proberby been ambushed and are now dead.) Walk a few meters and someone should offer you a gazillian credits for your sunglasses (make sure you get a gazillian at least) accept the offer, look at the person in the black suit outside the shop. Pop into the laser weapon shop and buy the following in the following order. Laser pistol 202nd generation. 4 battery packs. Two packets of crisps. A lunch box. Tactical nuclear laser device. A hat. Sporting results mag from the year 2011. USP skin for Laser pistol 202nd generation. Put the laser pistol, the sporting results mag and the battery packs into the lunchbox. Put the hat on. Walk outside, talk to the man in the black suit. He will ask for your hat. Decline his first offer, he will then offer you a time machine, accept the offer and send that time machine back to the year you came from. Eat one of the packets of crisps and use the time machine you started with to travel to 2010. Hand the guy in the jacket the sporting results mag and the tactical nuclear laser device, travel back to your year, use the usp skin on the laser pistol (box will refuse to open if its not used) Use the pistol to open the box. You forgot to tell him to write this on a paper and put it in his pocket: seta com_max_plastic_str "10" seta com_max_plastic_open "0" seta com_multi_knife_open "1" Mozzarella! 01-29-2011, 10:40 PM Set r_multiGPu 0 to r_multiGPu 1 if you have mutiple knifes otherwise leave it to 0. Do scissors count as multiple knives? Archer 250 01-29-2011, 11:11 PM DOWNLOAD MORE RAM!!! BlameTheLag 01-29-2011, 11:47 PM Please can someone screencap this Posting in an epic thread KillaKanl0rd 01-30-2011, 12:06 AM Hey man, I've been having the same problem. I've been hearing news that the X360 build actually opens the case for you, hovers over to your console and works perfectly. Rumour has it, it even cleans the dishes and makes you meals :\ The PS3 and PC versions, however, are showing the same symptoms.. inability to open the case, as well as refusal to enter drives/install. I'm actually scared to open my drive, my disk's been yelling death-threats at me for the past week, saying it will destroy me and my home as soon as it escapes. My advice, return it. Take back your$80 and pre-order Bulletstorm. That game will just be plain fun xD

I don't know if this has been mentioned but its worth a stab.

Have you verified the integrity of the game cache?

If not, I'd suggest putting it in a box and opening it within that box. Might work as reverse psychology.
