    Common issues

    E: Could not authenticate to Plutonium!
    F: Your game is in offline mode and you are trying to join a server in offline mode, start the game in online mode.

    E: Failed to Load libcef
    F: If you receive this error ensure your game folder is stored in a correct location. User areas such Desktop, Documents and Downloads are NOT correct locations to install software.
    C:/Games/Black Ops II Is the recommend location to extract the game to. If you wish to put it in a different location ensure there is no non-English characters in the file path / no symbols.

    E: The procedure entry point AddDllDirectory could not be located in the dynamic link library KERNEL32.dll
    F: Running an outdated Windows install is a bad idea, running an outdated Windows version that is so badly cracked you can’t even update it is even worse. Install all Windows updates.

    E: The code execution cannot proceed because binkw32.dll was not found. Reinstalling the program may fix this problem.
    F: Verify your game files, binkw32.dll is a file that ships with the game.

    E: The code execution cannot proceed because D3DCompiler_47.dll was not found. Reinstalling the program may fix this problem.
    F: D3DCompiler_47.dll is part of Microsoft’s DirectX.
