Halp wif Halo D:

Post by Starrz » Sat Aug 22, 2009 4:13 pm


I posted this video showing that every time I go on multiplayer, it does this.

I've searched Google all the time, but I never get the right answers.

Halp? D:

Looks like some terrible lag / disconnection problems to me.

Have you tried removing and reïnstalling the game again?

EDIT: At 1:04 the game shows the connection interupted icon... have you checked if the network connection is good?

...It's not actually a legal copy. But my connection is on (DSL/HIGH) and I've tried every connection, but it never changes.

That's Halo's terrible netcode for you. It has terrible client-side prediction of what the server is going to do with vehicle positions, weapon positions and player positions, which is made worse by being on a laggy server.

Essentially, it relies on regular server updates on object positions too much, making things seem to teleport around the map at random. (Not to be confused with having a hog spawn directly on top of you, which has happened several times to me. I rofl'd at every single one of them.)

Your server list seems to be ridiculously small at the time you connect to a server, so I suggest you wait until the server list is done loading before joining a server. If that is seriously the entire list which should be around 300-500 or something servers, you need to update Halo.

If the game is still unplayable (it's borderline unplayable even when it is playable) I suggest getting a proper game without shitty netcode.

Ehhh
I tried the patch. It says I need Halo installed for it to work.
Sounds like I'm basically screwed. :/

Try going with the servers with really low ping. Also, you might want to try and buy the game.

If it's an illegal copy, how did you install it? Was it just by dragging files from a .zip, or did you run the actual installer with a crack? The second option would be your best bet if you are trying to make it compatible with a patch. Try to find a download with the installer.

I got it from a youtube... Forgot which video it was.
But where could I get the installer? I'm not using torrents, I used torrents and it fucked up my computer.

Hmmm, if anyone here has a demonoid code, they could give you that. Their torrents almost NEVER have virus's.

You just have to be smart about it. Only download ones that have lots of positive feedback, and have many seeders and leechers.
