Halo PC = Halo: Combat Evolved Halo CE = Halo: Custom Edition Server list not showing? Graphics a little bland? Feel like a lonely Spartan? Read on! [u]Update Your Video Card, Audio Card, And Network Drivers[/u] Essential, do not skip [u]Install The Latest Version Of Halo PC/CE[/u] No previous patches required [url=http://halo.bungie.net/images/games/halopc/patch/110/halopc-patch-1.0.10.exe]Halo PC v1.10 Patch[/url] [url=http://halo.bungie.net/images/games/halopc/patch/110/haloce-patch-1.0.10.exe]Halo CE v1.10 Patch[/url] [u]Force Your Video Card To Recognize Halo CE (haloce.exe)[/u] NVIDIA does not recognize the .exe of Halo CE meaning that any custom set options in the "Manage 3D" are ignored. To fix this open NVIDIA control panel, go to "Manage 3D settings" tab, click "Program Settings", click "Add", then find your Halo CE .exe [u]Force Halo PC/CE To Recognise Your Video Card[/u] If your video card was made post-2006, Halo PC/CE will recognise it as ''Unknown'' in config.txt located within your Halo PC/CE directory. To fix this: 1. Double click Halo PC/CE, immediately hold down ctrl 2. A small widow will appear with a code such as ''0x05e2'' 3. Copy this code and open ''config.txt'' 4. Under your video card vendor, before Unknown = "Unknown", create a new entry named as your video card, e.g 0x05e2 = "GeForce GTX 260". Consider adding the following underneath: [b]UseAnisotropicFilter[/b] Improves quality of oblique textures. After force to x16 in your video control panel for max quality [b]DisableBuffering[/b] Eliminates mouse lag by forcing the video card to render each frame. Expect an FPS hit [b]DisableAlphaRenderTargets[/b] Eliminates scope blur in a fashion superior to HAC 2 (see below), makes some textures very shiny, breaks active cammo, breaks night vision. Optional Repeating step 1 should now show a window stating your current video card, not ''unknown'' as before [u]Install HAC 2, Compatible With Halo PC And Halo CE[/u] HAC 2 is an unofficial patch for Halo PC/CE by Btcc22. Read all about it [url]http://modacity.net/forums/showthread.php?24960-HAC-2-Release[/url] Install by dropping [url]http://client.haloanticheat.com/release.zip[/url] Into C:\Program Files (x86)\Microsoft Games\Halo [(AND Halo Custom Edition)]\controls [u]Install OpenSauce, Compatible With Halo CE Only[/u] Open Sauce v4 released!

It includes menus for many community made singleplayer maps. To install, drop into your Halo CE maps folder. creating a backup of ''ui.map'' fist [url]http://modacity.net/forums/showthread.php?25459-Universal-UI-Version-1.1-Release-Thread[/url] [u]Enable Antialiasing[/u] Standard AA does not work on Halo PC/CE NVIDIA users, force FXAA in their video control panel AMD users, force MLAA in their video control panel Highest AA quality possible: [url]http://www.neogaf.com/forum/showthread.php?t=509076[/url] [i]SweetFX listed below may also be used to inject SMAA/FXAA[/i] [u]HAC 2 Tweaks[/u] [b]Set A Custom Field of View[/b] Press F6 in game to adjust [b]Reduce Scope Blur[/b] See below on how to enable the console. Open the console and execute ''scope_blur 0'' to reduce scope blur [b]Correct Widescreen HUD Scaling[/b] Execute ''hac_widescreen 1''. (Enabled by default, some maps look better with it off) [b]Enable Custom Chat[/b] Replace Halo's garish white chat console with a Reach-style replacement. Execute ''custom_chat 1'' [b]Bookmark Servers[/b] Press F4/F5 ingame [u]Improve Input Lag And Online Performance[/u] Latency is the enemy of a good k/d ratio. Latency includes internet pings, but is comprised mainly at the very desk you're sitting at. It is silly to complain of high pings if your own hardware is poorly optimized. Set Halo network settings according to your internet upload speed. Use [url]http://Speedtest.net[/url] as a guide or login to your router. Speedtest reports lower upload speeds than actual, so select next highest setting in Halo if upload results are slightly lower than what is available. Use CAT6/5e cables, don't use wireless or Homeplugs. Turn off bandwidth eaters like phone wifi and Steam. To lower WAN pings, ask your ISP to disable interleaving. To reduce input lag: disable vsync, enable ''game mode'' on your monitor, use VGA, make sure ''maximum pre-renderd frames" is set to app-controlled or 0 in your video card control panel, set mouse polling rate to maximum, and set your monitor to its highest refresh rate. Research HPET, I have it disabled. In multiplayer servers, type ''/lead'' or ''/info'' into chat in-game to check if the server uses nolead. Nolead, part of SAPP server software, patches Halo PC/CE's notorious netcode problem whereby players must apply ''shot leading''. One must shoot his target slightly farther than one would do naturally, this worsens the higher your ping. Nolead fixes this and for new/inexperienced players especially, a server that implements nolead is highly preferable to servers which do not Take advantage of Halo's many glitches [url]http://thehaloforum.com/halo-1/140298-halo-multiplayer-applicable-guide-h1-xbox.html[/url] [u]Improve Graphics With SweetFX[/u] Use [url=http://sweetfx.thelazy.net]SweetFX[/url] for post processing effects. Incompatible with Xfire in-game. [url=http://youtube.com/watch?v=v21m_p7d2A4]Youtube tutorial[/url] Sweetfx's successor is in the works: [url]http://reshade.me/[/url] [u]Fix Assault Rifle HUD Glitch[/u] 1. Download [url=http://gamefront.com/files/service/thankyou?id=3810163]Halo Mapping Tools v3.5[/url] 2. Read [url=http://opencarnage.net/index.php?/topic/1924-assault-rifle-hud-meter-fix/]this post[/url] 3. Open a map (not bitmaps.map) with HMT 4. Navigate to ui\hud\bitmaps\combined\hud_ammo_meters 5. Replace the old bitmap with the new .dds file from the post 6. Decline to update image size Don't apply this to CE, you will be booted from servers. CE has a .map checking system to prevent cheating. The patch will apply to all maps when done [u]Force Highest Quality Shaders[/u] Works for Halo PC, works for Halo CE singleplayer maps only.
