Ok, I set everything to max (Even though I'm not sure about the timedemo running on my saved options) and the results dropped slightly.

Date / Time: 10/3/2003 3:55:26 PM (103347062ms)
2800MHz, 2048MB, 128M ATI Radeon 9700 PRO (DeviceID=0x4e44) Driver=6.14.10.6368 Shader=2.0
C:\Program Files\Microsoft Games\Halo\halo.exe -timedemo (Version=1.0.1.580)
Frames=4700
Total Time=164.54s
Average frame rate=28.57fps
Below 5fps= 6% (time) 0% (frames) (9.878s spent in 4 frames)
Below 10fps= 6% (time) 0% (frames)
Below 15fps= 6% (time) 0% (frames)
Below 20fps= 9% (time) 2% (frames)
Below 25fps= 33% (time) 20% (frames)
Below 30fps= 54% (time) 41% (frames)
Below 40fps= 88% (time) 81% (frames)
Below 50fps= 98% (time) 96% (frames)
Below 60fps= 98% (time) 97% (frames)
Memory used Max=161MB, Min=129MB, Ave=149MB

SOOOO, in order to get 30fps, I need all my options set to off or low. Hmmm... Any other options or feedback people?

I thought of that too. I put the AA back to app preference and tried the timedemo again and got the following:

Date / Time: 10/3/2003 3:45:28 PM (102766171ms)
2800MHz, 2048MB, 128M ATI Radeon 9700 PRO (DeviceID=0x4e44) Driver=6.14.10.6368 Shader=2.0
C:\Program Files\Microsoft Games\Halo\halo.exe -timedemo (Version=1.0.1.580)
Frames=4700
Total Time=147.16s
Average frame rate=31.94fps
Below 5fps= 7% (time) 0% (frames) (10.787s spent in 12 frames)
Below 10fps= 7% (time) 0% (frames)
Below 15fps= 7% (time) 0% (frames)
Below 20fps= 8% (time) 0% (frames)
Below 25fps= 15% (time) 5% (frames)
Below 30fps= 38% (time) 25% (frames)
Below 40fps= 78% (time) 68% (frames)
Below 50fps= 94% (time) 90% (frames)
Below 60fps= 98% (time) 97% (frames)
Memory used Max=148MB, Min=130MB, Ave=140MB

BUT, in my video options, I have everything turned off or low. Does the timedemo use my saved settings? With those settings, I had noticed it about that much faster before reverting my AA and AF to application preference. I'll turn on all my options now and run it again. I'll also try the time demo with -use11. BRB!

btw, who are ya?

Hey guys, I've been waiting for Halo for a long time too, but when I compare it to a game like BF1942 it falls way short. They really got the technology right for that game. Anyone who has NOT played it, download the demo and compare.

As for Halo, so far I have to agree with the negative consensus that the game doesn't even come close to the hype. I tried the singleplayer and multiplayer. I tried all the tweaks that I've seen posted. I have a damn good machine for playing and access via a T1. Below are my specs and timedemo results. Just running the timedemo I'm seeing a LOUSY 20 FPS average. It's really not even playable for me with the options all set low/off and using the tweaks.

Suggestions/Feedback?
