Halo PC 1.05 on Tuesday
Posted by sawnose at 9/6/2004 2:04 PM PDT
This is a 1-day advance notice that we'll be releasing a hotfix to Halo PC (v 1.05) sometime tomorrow. No feature changes, just two fixes: 1. Security fix to prevent a malicious user from being able to shut down the game on the server (never yet exploited, that we know of) 2. Fix for the XP SP2 problems as noted in my other recent thread on The Maw forum here on www.bungie.net. If you would like to get your dedicated servers ready, here is the download: [url=http://download.microsoft.com/download/9/b/6/9b64c4f1-9213-45d0-bb89-caae14e9a77c/haloded.exe]Halo PC 1.05 Dedicated Server[/url]. I'll be sending the corresponding hotfix for Halo CE (to v. 1.05 to stay consistent) to Gearbox tomorrow also, please see their forums at that time for download instructions. (I'll set Halo CE to auto-update also, if Gearbox has a codesigning certificate available (I'm not sure). If they don't, I will refrain from having it auto-update, for the protection of the users, who we don't want to encourage to run unsigned bits that are pushed to them, due to the risk of spoofing.) Feel free to copy this post to the Gearbox forums - I never got around to setting up an account there :-) -Roger

Halo 1 PC/Mac, and Marathon 2 XBLA players rejoice!

If you missed the news in the Weekly Update, (scroll down to the section with the orange block of game UI), players of classic Bungie games get a head start on making their Reach lobby appearance shiny by unlocking some special nameplate images.

Two of these need a few extra clicks on your part to become active, so we're letting you get started now - Halo 1 for PC/Mac, and Marathon 2: Durandal for XBLA. To unlock these emblems:

1. Make sure you're signed in to Bungie.net with the account that's linked to the gamertag you want to tie your Halo PC key to. If you tie it to one account, but only played Halo 2 and 3 on a different account, we CAN NOT help you combine them later to get the emblem for playing all 3. Choose wisely! Obviously, this also has to be the gamertag you'll play Reach with.

2. Visit your Bungie.net account page , then click the Game Settings tab, then the Nameplate Settings link below that.

3. Follow the instruction there to unlock your stuff!

4. Wait an agonizingly long 20 days until 9/14 when you get Reach and play it online

5. Return to the same Nameplate Settings page , where you'll be shown all the nameplates available to you, and you can choose one to use. Return there whenever you feel like changing things up.

6. Questions? Problems? Post here

So creative it's spelled with a k.


HBO dug up a sweet, ten minute video of Eckosama making a mighty fine collection out of vehicles on Halo's AotCR.  Wanna see the display?  Check it out in HD.

Retrograde Episode One: Solitude

All by myself.


The dude running the show over at HBO found this pretty sweet retro Machinima shot using Halo.  Not to shabby.  Seven minutes should you decide to give it a watch.  And you should.  It's not like you're doing anything else today.
