BO3 Custom Maps Not Working Due To Game Language

Some BO3 maps are not playable because of your games language, with this work around you should be able to play any map that is not playable due to your game language.   I’ve tested this using the English version of BO3, but this should work for all versions of the game.  The easiest way to fix this problem is to change your game language to English, but apparently this is not possible on all versions of the game.

Change Game Language:

Steam Library, Right click on Call of Duty: Black Ops III, Properties, Language, and change it to English.

If you don’t have the option to change your language, follow below to get the map to work.

1) Go to your Steam Library > steamapps > workshop > content > 311210. This is where all you custom maps are located.

2) For this example I am using the map Saw 1, which is only playable with the English Version (en) of the game. (To easily find the folder number for you map in BO3 workshop go to the map page and click share and notice the number at the end of the url.)

3) To make the map work for your language change these two files to your language code. In this example I've changed this to work with Russian (ru). The map should now be playable. Below are the language codes for the different languages.

bp = Brazilian Portuguese
ea = (not sure)
en = English
es = Spanish
fr = French
ge = German
it = Italian
ja = Japanese
po = Polish (not sure)
ru = Russian
sc = Sardinian (not sure)
tc = (not sure)
