What about 1-50? is there ranks in H2v?

Some guy is making a mod for it, but it seems he abandoned it. So frustrating :/

Here it is.

Can brx'ing be done with kb/m?

Yep. And macros take that one step beyond. Imagine being able to pull that off just by hitting one key. Welcome to the glorious world of Halo 2 Vista.

Button combos don't work anymore anyway. Melees don't register unless you're still in the animation after a second.

50 in H2/H3? Great, but you still fail at this.

Halo Reach PC über alles!

How could this page be loitering on page 3? I ask you?

I agree, this is a good thread.

I'd like to add that if you're motivated enough, you can use an original Xbox controller. On Xbox live I played nearly 8,000 Halo 2 games, and I bought Halo 2 for Vista last week mostly for nostalgia's sake. Here's the process:

1. Acquire/make USB adapter for Xbox controller S (I already had one, fortunately)

2. Bully Windows 7 (or Vista) into accepting XBCD's program

3. Test the buttons in Halo 2, then change the button assignments in XBCD to reflect what Halo 2 interprets. If anyone is curious, I'll look up exactly what the buttons are, but I don't see the need. (Does this mean that Halo 2 thinks the Xbox controller is a 360 controller?)

My question is whether I still get help with aiming. I didn't pay close attention when I played the other day, but in both (lengthy) games I came away with a +1 kill/death spread.

Add me to your friends list if you haven't already. It's a lot more fun to play with people from The Maw and people I know than random noobs.

I always enjoyed the button glitches back when I played H2 on xbox, but I am very surprised that they did not take care of them for the PC version. Surely they thought of how easy it would be to program "RRX YY RRX YY RRX" for nearly unlimited battle rifle fire.

The BXR and doubleshot were fun in the xbox game, but they caused a huge controversy so Bungie had to know about it.

Yeah. That's right. I don't have a 50 in H3. I never got Onyx in Reach. If a game sucks too much, I won't even bother trying for such trivial "accolades". Besides, I've done way more things that take far more skill and talent than anything that can be done in a video game.

Wise fwom your gwave.

How many times are people going to ask this? Wasn't there an FAQ??


Yes, yes there was.

Thankyou for bumping this so people may hopefully read before asking the same questions..

Furthermore on the Co op section of the guide, there is an incomplete mod that Shock120 was working on, in its current form, i have been able to play most of the Arbiter levels though it's unstable, with the MC levels not working at all. Just thought that might be worth a mention.

For Carnage Apply Within - We played Marathon before Marathon was cool!

Keep it authentic...

Can you connect a wireless Xbox 360 headset to the wireless adapter for PC?

If so, could I use that headset on Skype without having Halo 2 or any windows live game open?

This is actually the stupidest thing ever posted on B.net:

Posted by: the omega man117
Why does everyone hate Halo 2? Maybe its because its the worst game ever next to mario.

When I try to play multiplayer, no games show up on this list.
Leave the game running for about 10 minutes. Screw around in a game by yourself, play some single-player, whatever. It might work after that.

Surprisingly, this was fixed a while back. The server list loads up every time now.

A little bump never hurt anybody. Or is it a little bump never hurt nobody? Eh.

I didn't see it in the FAQ and it has been a very frustrating issue since H2V's last update in 2007 (lol) :

I am experiencing what seems to be a 1 second game freeze anytime a new player joins the server that I am gaming in...what gives? <---That doesn't sound right lol?

This is commonly referred to in Halo 2 Vista as "Join Lag." It is known that Halo 2 Windows Vista carries some incompatibilities with the Games for Windows Live client and this is one of many issues that will never be fixed. It affects all players, just not you.

You know edit it and whatnot to your liking.

Voice chat doesn't work?
A gfwl update broke voice chat too, when the Xbox moved codecs.

Wow. You guys are still around. I found this faq so long ago when I had used up my halo 2 vista activations. I was curious to see if any support was rendered by ms in the last few years but I guess not. Thanks for the years of help.
