I've had 4 hard freezes so far. Every time I'm trying to get into a game and I get a hard freeze its when it says "awaiting textures". I've read others who say the same thing. I'm no genius but maybe treyarchs should look into this...just a thought
Installed them shortly after they became available. Any other bright comments to add to the discussion?
Yep. I've had 3 freezes, definitely 2 had same thing. Probably did on the 3rd but I was so pee'd off I didn't notice! Installed the textures to HDD before I played a match too.
Multiplayer screen, bottom choice is "options". In there the bottom option is "install".
