Besides the "statistic" at the very beginning this is the best thread in awhile
and yeah, I'm bumping this -blam!- until it's a sticky.

There is a better solution that crapping your framerate for mouse lag which would be increasing the USB polling rate, it worked for me. follow the directions here: http://www.overclock3d.net/forums/showthread.php?t=8561

Hi,

I'm running Windows XP. I was installing Halo 2 when I accidentally clicked the cancel button half way through. Now I can't re-install it. I can't uninstall it either because it wasn't complete in the first place. So I've uninstalled it with norton system works and deleted all of Halo 2 programs from the registry, and then I tried reinstalling it again but still could not. I get this message, "Files are missing or damaged in the installation directory". Please advise or help.

Thanks.

I'm not going to advise you on that as you stated; You're trying to play Halo 2 Vista on XP...
Look for help somewhere else...
Sorry, it's not like I personally have anything against XP or you, but I'm not sure if it's legal...
LOL, I've already PM'd three Forum Ninjas and one Community Guy about stickying this thread... :/
Is there someone in particular that I should PM?

Hello. I just picked up Halo 2 vista. it came with a one moth live subscription so I created a profile and actived the free subscription card. Problem is... When I go to "live" from the in game menu, it says that no profile was found. Sorry, Im new to windows Live..

Where do I sign in (as far as the in game menu is concerend) and how do I play online?

You sure it's not just a setting issue? Try going to the LIVE menu by pressing HOME ingame and then in the personal settings is the Audio settings for the mic and speakers regarding the player(s) etc... If it's not then it must be a Audio driver issue, Either search for an update or if it's up to date make sure that it's configured in the right way like let's say you've got an 5.1 setup: Go to the Control Panel-> Then Hardware & Sound->Sound->Configure and select the 5.1 setup and proceed with the test.

And vincent5, I've heard that doesn't work. To make it to work you'll have to exit your current game (when it asks for the disc) then, from the singleplayer menu, you have to select the Gravemind level manually.

Iggwilv, Whenever I'm going to update my topic, I'm going to update the one over at Halo2Vista (original) and add an description on what I updated like I've done the whole time. So because I've already used the 10000 character limit, you're going to have to add in your post the things that I'll be adding into my topic ok? So just check in on the original one once in a while ok? Or I could just tell you or whatever suits you.

And yes, this should be made a sticky.

Yeah, I've done that. Evrythings normal. Its just not working.

It's hard helping people here "On the fly" if you know what I mean. It's like being a doctor and having patients telephoning me saying:
"Doc, doc!? Listen man, you've got to help me! I've got this horrible pain and I don't know what to do!!!"
...So, until I get to know more about your computer and settings there's really not much I can do...

Enough with the RvB... it's dead. Plus, I get sick of finding noobs online on ALL GAMES ON ALL SERVERS OF EVERY GAME I PLAY WITH RVB AND/OR THE NAME OF ONE OF THE CHARACTERS, WHICH SOMETMES MAKES ME WANT TO WRITE WITH CAPS LOCK ON AT ALL TIMES AND BOOT THEM, PERHAPS WIT A REAL BOOT.

Oh yeah man, feels great.

Look, see, watch, my Halo 2 Vista always asks for a profile when I choose Live from the main menu, but it always says theres no profile found. How is that possible?

Well, this was a waste of a Sticky. Nobody ever replies, and Caboose perhaps got a heart stroke.

No, I'm still alive.
And I'm updating the first post as necessary.
Besides, it's not that wise to cram this sticky full of crap, let's just post here if we have something useful to say ok?
Oh, and my school just started again so I'm afraid that I won't be able to update as often as I did, but all the tips that are there should suffice for now. You can PM me if you come up with something new and you'd like to share it with us so I can put it in my first post, I'll give full credit.

Actually I did ask something. You want to find it, or should I quote myself and call it a day?

Have you done a LIVE account manually? Over at Xbox LIVE? Does it sign in when you turn on Halo 2? More info needed as the LIVE issues in halo 2 are so different from each other everytime I run into them. Is your date set correctly in Windows? Are the required ports open for Halo 2 to access? You'd have better luck looking around at other people's problems when looking for a solution.

Please use english. It helps us understand you, and it makes you look intelligent. And to answer your question, no. You have to buy a new graphics card, you have been told this, and told this, so let's get it through your head this time. Repeat after me: I must buy a new graphics card inorder to play Halo 2 Vista. I will not ask this question again. O_O
