There's no way Nate Hawbaker's favorite hero is Alan Stuart

Sure do wish my TV was HD enough for me to be able to read the code. :|

It is pretty brutal if you don't have 1080p.

My guess is the code is glitched. It either works, or doesn't. Also, this website is no longer managed by Bungie. If you really want to try and figure this out, I'd go to halo.xbox.com Otherwise, I have nothing really of use, so... sorry.

They should make it readable for pretty much all tvs. It's bull if only people with 1080p are the ones who can read it, and everyone else can't.

Happy day-after-sunset!

After years of research, Bungie engineers are proud to unveil the networking technology of the future, the Sneakernet. Where traditional network technologies can be subject to disconnects and other inconvenient interruptions, the Sneakernet provides a robust new way to get data from your Xbox to your PC -- you walk it over!

I know that many of you are feeling glum that your Reach emblem and armor will no longer update, which is where the Sneakernet comes in. Just write down the avatar code that's been sitting there all along in the game's menu system, and type it in to the box on Bungie.net (described below). A few minutes later, your shiny new avatar images and video will be ready.

Wait, video? Sure, we thought we'd spruce things up a little and let you see your avatar from all sides. The details below will tell you how to get your own 360-degree view of your avatar, after you use the new Sneakernet system.

Here are the details:

- Sign in to Bungie.net with a profile that has an existing Reach service record, and click Profile in the main navigation bar.
- Click the Game Settings tab
- Click the new Player Model link below the tab
- Below the explanatory image, a line of text will remind you of the last Service Tag we have on record for you. Set your Reach service tag back to this value if you've changed it.
- The image on Bungie.net shows where in the Reach main menu you can find your armor code (Start -> Network Status, then wait for about 30 seconds for the code to appear at the top). Your Service Tag on that screen must match the one on Bungie.net for this to work.
- Carefully record the code you see at the top of the screen, and enter it into the box on Bungie.net. It is 64 characters long, consisting only of the digits 0-9 and the letters A-F. Be careful, 0 looks like D, and 6, 8 and B look similar. I recommend typing it first into a different text editor and pasting it into Bungie.net so you can easily try again if you make a mistake.
- Hit the Save Changes button. We will then attempt to render your armor image. We have no way to give immediate feedback if you entered the code correctly, so you'll have to wait about 5 minutes and check your Service Record to see if it updates or not.
- Once you see your armor or emblem change, that means it worked!
- From your service record page, click your armor image to see the full-size version. Now add &vid=1 to the end of the URL in your browser's address bar and hit enter, and you can download a video (AVI) file of your Spartan seen from all angles. (This will only exist after you use the new text-code feature)

Enjoy this final Halo-based Bungie.net feature!

Easter Egg Hunter. Apprentice Tricker/Glitcher (learning from Grumpy and Sliding Ghost).

Trying to get Waypoint to update Halo 3 stats in detail like here. Now no one can see that my Halo 3 Spartan no longer looks like my Reach Spartan.

Really want to be a Heroic member or have a title. :/

Can you please do this with Halo 3 avatars too? Halo Waypoint only updates the barest minimum of stats for Halo 3 (Only games played and K/D).

I don't think they will. This site isn't updated anymore. If you want go to halo.xbox.com That's the main site they're using now.

fun fact: as of last week, this render feature is running on an xbox at my desk. Something about the test team wanting their xbox lab back yadda yadda.
