  • I'll definitely be keeping this thread saved. I've been meaning to install add-ons for a while, now. Thanks, OP

  • Fuq that, I will just turn on my Xbox 360 and play Halo CE Anniversary. Hell of a lot easier than having to do all that crap.

  • Hey just wanted to say that Nvidia users can play Halo with AA now, with the introduction of FXAA. Probably worth adding to the OP.

  • The download link for widescreen fixer is down. Is there any other way of getting it? I'm really desperate to fix the FOV.

  • [quote][b]Posted by:[/b] willis936 What exactly does compatibility mode do?[/quote] It uses certain files in the system32 folder for certain applications that need it, halo 2 does not. :)

  • [quote][b]Posted by:[/b] willis936 I wasn't specifically looking for texmods. It's already an incredible jump from the xbox version. I was just hoping for some way of running in dx10 with bloom or AO. The lighting just feels very flat and my CPU and GPU never get above 40% load (save playing around with the scarab gun :p). I've not once had any stability or framerate issues with the game. Running on 7 x64 with compatibility mode vista SP1 and running as administrator. I would like to override the "revert to non aero desktop scheme" while the game is running. That's very annoying.[/quote] Take off compatibility mode , I know what I'm talking about. :) Go to your halo 2 directory, right click on halo2.exe/startup.exe, go to compatibility tab, and make sure "Disable desktop composition" is unchecked. There are no graphics mods for Halo 2 Vista, the most you can do is to go to your graphics card control panel and make sure AA x16 is enabled

  • [quote][b]Posted by:[/b] Zetren The reason that I didn't include "DisableAlphaRenderTargets" is because that breaks the shiny active cammo fix I posted, and the pistol blur is supposed to be there also :P[/quote] Sorry! [quote][b]Posted by:[/b] Zetren I'm interested in the optimization for anisotropic filtering you were talking about. Can you tell me more?[/quote] I'm not certain how this works. It seems to substitute filters. Trilinear becomes bilinear in some places, and anisotropy becomes trilinear when the higher filtering is "unnecessary". Try a game with bilinear filtering sometime to see how awful looking it is. It looks a lot like the tearing that occurs without vsync. The optimization setting is a trade off. You'll sometimes get a nice image, while other times there is a sort of "sparkle" effect, I guess due to the mixture of filtering methods. Simple, right?

I can't seem to find any texmods, tweak guides, tweak guides, or even launch options of note for graphic modifications. Truly lame.[/quote]I highly doubt there are any texture mods for Halo 2 Vista or even many tweaks at all besides FPS Limiter. I think I remember seeing a guide to fixing most of the problems that you might encounter with h2v somewhere...

Yeah, there are options in HMT under some tags to increase the texture quality in the maps. It takes some time, but you have to go into each individual map and check the highest quality setting.

Sorry :/) Oh, and yeah, I do like the new layout. (:[/quote] Please find out! This would probably be the best tweak of them all as it would actually disable texture compression, free steak for you if you do so x) [quote][b]Posted by:[/b] airmanleon59556 Hey I have a Compaq Presario with CPU 2.5 GHz, 504MB RAM, and intel integrated graphics chipset 845G. I know its not great but it works alright I was just wondering if there is anyway to make halo run better on intel integrated graphics. In particular I have a problem where the master chiefs visor is black in the game instead of gold. Any help would be appreciated![/quote] Hi, Update your graphics card drivers, that has been proven to fix it. [Edited on 08.10.2011 10:05 AM PDT]

  • Well, to be honest, I'd rather not have the blur on the pistol scope. Does anyone actually use the Night Vision on the Sniper? I'd also rather see people with active camo easier... Even though that might be seen as a [i]little[/i] cheap.

  • It's a multiplayer enhancement so point four is moot. Just point out the downsides and add it. ;) Just because you don't use it doesn't change the fact that the vast majority of active players do and for good reason.
