159. graphic slowdown Jan 20, 2004, 20:15 MMUK

i hope MS gets it act together for HALO2 or they wont be getting my 39.99 there is something buggy about the game or DX9b using the console and FPS it never goes above 30 FPS only down thats trying all different settings in and out of game and thats on 640x480 ! it seems fixed permanantly on it or less once u add the extras or go up in res, its the only game thats remotely slow on my machine and some of the machines here are monstrous and they have the same prob and i have a fully patched 1.03 game too.

and add some coop play would be nice over lan
and some huge huge huge ass maps with 64 players would be cool

hers a tip
Goto game folder and look for config.txt using ur device ID EG=(DeviceID=0x4e44) u can get this from timedemo u can get card and see if they force 1.4 on it or other fixes or cards that are unsupported.

158. Re: I have to buy 2 copies to play on my Jan 20, 2004, 19:59 MMUK
GOTO start menu/run
type regedit [press enter or click ok]
find reg key
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Microsoft Games\Halo

look at the right
PID XXXXX-XXX-XXXXXXX-XXXX# (right click/modify)
change the # to another number 0-9 ( i just added 1 )

then goto
DigitalProductID (right click modify) opens in binary click the right side then del/type the last number and put the same number as above

this works for me to play on a LAN as long as the game loads up.

Mods shouldnt delete this as it wont circumvent online play which is the only reason to buy 2 copies( i mean give MS more money for another product shipped with problems- i think MS call it "progress")

if this doesnt work unisntall on 1 machine delete this reg if it doesnt when unisntalling then reinstall using a serial(try a few) from the net these are banned Ids so dont try em on the net
