Halo PC 1.06 - Manual Update
Posted by sawnose at 11/16/2004 2:25 PM PST
Halo Hot-Fix v1.06: The Halo for Windows v1.06 Hotfix addresses a rare crash bug that could occur if a malicious individual (hacker) purposely imitates a game server and sends invalid data to clients who try to browse the server list. This hot-fix changes the version number of Halo for Windows and the Halo for Windows Dedicated Server to v1.06 from v1.05. [b]NOTE: Due to an incompatibility discovered between some systems and the updated Auto-patcher released with version 1.05, users of 1.05 will have to manually download an updated Auto-patcher 1.06 and run it from the Halo directory to receive this latest update.[/b] Users updating form prior versions can auto-patch from the game. This issue is addressed for any future patches beyond 1.06. Users of HaloPC 1.0 through 1.04 will receive the normal auto-update message, however a change in the auto-updater will require users of 1.05 to follow a special manual-update procedure: If you are running HaloPC 1.05, follow the following precedure to update: 1. Save the following file to your game directory, such as c:\program files\microsoft games\halo. Overwrite the existing file. Remember to "save" this file, don't try to "open" it directly from the website. [url=http://download.microsoft.com/download/4/4/0/440419e2-db95-455c-8871-54b1cd89ad07/haloupdate.exe]HaloUpdate 1.06[/url] 2. Now that the file is saved, run it. If you receive an error message, such as that strings.dll was not found, you probably didn't save it to the location where the game was installed. 3. Allow it to download the full 1.06 patch and install it. You're done! Users of versions other than 1.05 can auto-patch, or download and run this file: [url=http://download.microsoft.com/download/3/2/a/32ae960e-9a8b-4674-bbea-92ae5e6c701b/halopc106.exe]Halo PC 1.06[/url] A new dedicated server is available here: [url=http://download.microsoft.com/download/7/6/f/76fecf5b-21b4-4255-8416-37b2f4846f7b/haloded.exe]Halo 1.06 Dedicated Server[/url]

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

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.
