Greetings, (EDIT: Fixed images that disappeared.) I see a lot of threads here on the site about asking out to play Redacted with friends that have tons on replies explaining it. Which sometimes, people leave out somethings that are needed. I am here to explain in depth of how to play Redacted with your friends. Let's get started! PREREQUISITES!! You guys will obviously need to have Black Ops 2 from Steam. You can use the nosTeam version of the game but I would highly recommend buying the game from Steam to ensure that you have no issues or errors with the game. Plus, the game is pretty cheap on g2a.com Another prerequisite is the Redacted client (obviously). You can get the client from their site at Please login or register to view links or downloads! The last thing you will need is a virtual IP LAN service. I personally use Tunngle but you can use what you choose. (Tunngle, Hamachi, Evolve, etc.) You can find Tunngle here: Please login or register to view links or downloads! You can find Evolve here: Please login or register to view links or downloads! (I did forget how to use Evolve) You won't be needing this at the start of this process but you will need it to connect to other players. INSTALL PROCEDURE Now that you have all the requirements, you can now install Redacted. When you download Redacted from the site, it should be in a '.7z' format. You can use WinRAR or 7ZIP to extract the files. When you open the .7z file, you should see this From here, you just drag and drop all of these files into your Black Ops II directory. If you can't find where your game is installed, you can follow this folder address 'C:\Program Files (x86)\Steam\steamapps\common\Call of Duty Black Ops II' Once that is installed, you are gonna want to change your ingame name to what you'd like. To do that, open the 'Redacted.ini' file with any text editor of your choice and change you name here. CONNECTING AND PLAYING You are now at the stage to open Redacted and play; but you won't be able to play with friends just yet. If you downloaded Tunngle when offered earlier, go ahead and start that up and make an account. After making an account, you will have to install some things to make sure that the service runs correctly. Tunngle will have those for you to install. You will have to click Yes on some prompts that come up but that is all natural. You know you have everything correct when you see this Now, all you have to do is search "Call of Duty" in the search bar and connect to the "Call of Duty: Black Ops II Multiplayer " server. Also, have your friends connect to the same one or else they can't connect to you. PLAYING Everything is now set. When you are ingame, you can press 'F' to see the friends list and see all the online people who are in the server you connected to on Tunngle. Now just select their name and invite them to a game and everything should work fine. Enjoy!
