The Black Ops file is a file the Black Ops team is creating. The goal is to create a file that will contain all the code examples a novice will need for his first two years in game programming. Eventually, there will be two versions available.
The first is the online version, which is linked to below. This is used by the Black Ops team to develop the Black Ops file collaboratively online. The online version of the Black Ops File will always be the most complete and up-to-date version. However, we recommend getting the download version when it becomes available.
