Blackops Project Information
The information below will be current status & change log information for all official Blackops projects. I will try to keep the overall information as up to date as possible. Full logs are generally found in the original thread links to the project which will be included here so players can look there for newer updates or manual install files.

Feel free to post bugs either in this forum or in the respective mod's GPG thread. We do read both locations and try to respond on any issues that arise.

Note: Not all projects may be available on FAF yet but they have been included here so players will know what to expect.

Are all the above mods included or going to be included in the Blackops download on FAF or will they be able to be downloaded separately at a later date?
Also, I love the Blackops ACU mod, glad to see its kicking

All the mods will eventually be available through FAF. We are waiting for them to add an "options" screen so that players can enable/disable the individual components like you could do with the Mod Manager version. Default will have them all enabled though.

Is there any update about the other BO mods in FAF, or is it still "just" BO:U and BO:ACU?

The links still work and are present in the GPG links listed in the OP. Just look carefully, they are usually listed after the images or after all the per-requisite mods.
