MP Extra Mods


If you have a previous version of the mod, you must remove it completely via uninstaller before installing this new one. Make sure to manually remove any remaining files, but remember to make a backup of any save files you might have. Clean installation is mandatory.

Moreover, the mod now has an official Discord server where weekly online events will be organized! Make sure to download the separate MP Extra Mods package for playing in those. Link to the Discord server: Discord.gg

Have fun and... how does John put it? "Watch your six."

Amazing!! It truly makes me happy that these games can still be played and experienced! If it wasn't for people like you making mods/fixes like these, chances are the games would be unplayable.

Thank you!! :D

Thanks for all the new content.
Yesterday I realized there is now different in-game dubbing choices, this is cool! I was beginning tests for a French dubbing mod when I discovered that… 😅
GJ!

Thanks to you for your continuous support!
About the dubbing mods, those only affect in-game audio of operatives and other NPCs during missions. Mission briefings remain in English. It was pointless to include those as they wouldn't cover all the missions in Black Ops. Not all games and expansions got a proper dubbing; for instance, Russian dubbing only comes from a Black Thorn release, a terrible Italian dubbing was done only for Rogue Spear, and so on.

Thank you so much for releasing this. So much fun playing through it years later. Spent many hours as a kid trying so hard to get through these missions.

Seriously great to be able to play this game so well. I've tried a few of the official versions and there's always issues with them. This is flawless. Great job.
