Halo PC 1.02 Patch and Performance FAQ
Posted by Sketch at 10/8/2003 4:49 PM PDT
Right now a small update for Halo PC is being released online and the next time you connect you should automatically download the patch. This update will allow everyone to connect to the new Dedicated Server 1.02 that was released yesterday.

Over the past week, many of you have expressed questions and concerns regarding the performance of Halo on your PC. Today we're releasing a special Halo PC Techincal & Performance FAQ that was put together by teams at Bungie, Gearbox and MS to try and answer some of these questions. Here's a note from Halo PC Producer Michel Bastien:

We’ve put this FAQ together for you guys. By we, I mean Bungie, Gearbox and Microsoft. Every engineer at Gearbox has reviewed this FAQ and communicated their feedback, so did our senior Development Manager at Microsoft Game Studios (the guy who wrote timedemo and led the effort to reduce the memory consumption of the game).

You now know many, many technical details about the PC version of Halo.

We acknowledge Halo is a demanding piece of software but I personally have played it on many different configurations and consistently tweaked it to have an enjoyable game experience.

Having said this, tweak your settings, get them to your liking and immerse yourself in the world of Halo. Then, get your ass online now… are you still reading this? Get online! We’re quadrupling our number of dedicated servers this week. We’re adding more game types to our own game rotations. You have a suggestion? Check out the Halo gametypes database on Bungie.net and submit your request! We’re working hard on preparing our MOD tools to release them to you... Then, you guys will be the ones driving the experience in new directions, creating the next Timberland, the next Blood Gulch and who knows what. I’ll be online playing it.

Thanks for reading and, more important, thanks for playing.

An online version of this FAQ is being produced at the moment but in the meantime, you can download the .rtf file here.

Now stop reading this, grab the patch... and in the words of Sgt. Johnson, "buckle up and get ready to dance you pasty bastards!"
