  1. MSI Optix MAG301CR 21:9 1080p 200Hz VA Panel But I'm gonna run it without overdrive so more likely 144-165Hz.
  2. Halo Trial: http://www.mediafire.com/download/tsqdz7uzzrdliu8/halotrialsetup.exe 3rd Party Gamespy Patch(XeTav): http://www.mediafire.com/download/4k5gwafndq3qx81/XTSuperSpyPatch.exe Halo Trial Host Tools(XeTav): http://www.mediafire.com/download/f4ewvt2nem1mefg/XeTav+V3.exe In the event that you wanted to play Halo with some friends, but none of you own a Console, Gold Membership, or Halo PC, I've retained a copy of 'Halo Trial' for use. This is the official Trial and is Legal. How to Access Online (After Gamespy removal) Run the Tool as Admin Since the removal of Gamespy, you will not be able to access online servers very easily. With the help of a 3rd party tool by 'XeTav', you can bypass this problem. If you are unsure about whether you should use the 3rd party software, you can always host a server and have friends connect via Direct IP. If you don't know what your IP address is then you can use IP Chicken WARNING: DO NOT SHARE YOUR IP PUBLICLY!!!!! The Ending Video is rather annoying Alt+F4 or Locate your Halo Trial installation directory Windows 32-bit: C:\Program Files\Microsoft Games\Halo Trial WIndows 64-bit: C:\Program Files (x86)\Microsoft Games\Halo Trial and delete "demo.bik" The game gets a little boring after awhile... If you know how to mod (which our fantastic community can help you with) you can edit and create modded maps for use. In most cases these maps will not work online unless players have the same file. Other cases they will work but players will have a very terrible experience. Thus, if you don't want to deal with modding maps, you can always use XeTav's host tool. Download link located above. XeTav Host Tool (No, you can NOT use this in someone else's server. That's why it's called a Host Tool and not a hack) Run the tool as Admin Features... Host Tools (Server Wide Edits) Trainer (use caution, can cause crash if spammed) Map Modding This is to play a modded map without replacing the file, not an actual modding tool. >Open Halo and Tool >Go to Internet/Lan Hosting >Hover over Bloodgulch map but do not move on >In XeTav modding tool, click 'back-up' (this is if you want to end the server and run a different map) You will not lose the original map if you miss this step. Restarting Halo will reset to default >Browse for the modded 'Halo Trial' map and apply it. (I am unsure if it has to be renamed bloodgulch) >Run the server and the modded map should load without replacing the original Blam Modding This will allow you to replace the CTF gamemode with any other gamemode >Open Halo and Tool >Go to Internet/Lan Hosting >Select your map, and then wait on the gamemode screen >In XeTav, Back-up the gamemode in case you want to restore it and run a different gamemode. You will not lose the original gamemode if you miss this step. Restarting Halo will reset to default >Use the dropdown box for Default Blams and select your gamemode. If you created/downloaded a custom Blam you can use the browser and apply it. >Select CTF in Halo and run the server. It should run the modded gamemode instead. Others Just a couple of text stuff for chat fun
  3. The only thing I can think of is uninstall it then checking if Halo runs. Then reinstall it and make sure that you're selecting DirectX 9. If you're using modding .dll's in the control folder there might be some comparability problems but I'm unsure.
  4. Razer Ornata Mecha-Membrane Keyboard I normally wouldn't consider a Razer product but I tried this in stores and really liked it. A lot of people would give me flak for using membrane but I honestly prefer the weight and feel of it a lot more than mechanical. But the tactile feedback of a clicky mechanical switch can't be beat. This is the best of both for my preferences. And because of the membrane done, the clickiness of the mechanical switch is greatly muffled which is a nice bonus.
  5. I like it. The time of day looked weird to me until I realized it didn't change lightmaps. Simply looking at this makes me wonder what it would look like with a cell shade filter on it. Could give it a try via Reshade if I still had CE installed.
  6. 4% at 50% for me. My sister gets 4% at 100%.
  7. Never even heard of this was a thing. Sounds like a possibility for paid internships.
  8. That was fast. Was this built from scratch and how similar does it feel to CE?
  9. Are you on version v1.0.10? I also don't touch HCE anymore so I wouldn't actually know the status of the playerbase.
  10. The tyrant lives another year. He's also learned to speak in third person. He grows too powerful.
  11. What game is that?
  12. Welcome one and all to the grand Texture Upscaling Service! For the low low price of one of your organs you can have all your low resolution textures enlarged! *Some limitations apply @ShikuTeshi and @Tucker933 will help you on your way to obtaining that PC Master Race experience for your Halo Custom Edition content! With pure magic commonly known as Gigapixel by Topaz Labs you could see results like this! *Images presented contain 2K resolution textures that you can download here. HOWEVER You are required to prepare the files completely on your end. All we're doing here is upscaling your texture images. We are not here to prepare your entire texture tag for you. 1) If your texture is meant to be used as a multimap or sprite, you MUST decompose them into separate images beforehand. Gigapixel will NOT retain the right RGB channels for them to function as intended. It's also highly recommended to just do this for every single texture you want to maximize image quality. You can then compose them back together for the final product when we return them. 2) Make sure your images are saved as a PNG or JPG image. Gigapixel will accept TIF format as well, but there's an issue related to it that I'm not sure was fixed yet. 3) Upload the images you want done individually to something like Google Drive or Mega. Any file share service will do as long as you can share an entire folder and we can preview all the images before downloading. These are just the services that I can confirm to do these and that I am personally comfortable with. 4) Create a post here with a link to the download folder and what scale you would like. We would like to keep it in moderation for what Halo's game engine is capable of. So it would either be a 2x upscale across the board or simply bring everything up to 2K. The difference is the 2x upscale is in better moderation. So a 1024 size image will turn into a 2048, while lower resolutions like 256 go to 512 instead of 2048. This saves a lot of space where that higher resolution wouldn't make a difference for those textures in most cases. But if you REALLY just want everything in 2K. Sure, we'll do that for you. We will let you know when we have started on your images. Depending on the number you would like done and what type they are, it will take varying amounts of time that cannot be estimated. Once they have been processed, they will be uploaded to the OpenCarange FTP server for anyone to download. https://opencarnage.net/misc/upscale/ If you provided us with a number of images, we will zip those beforehand to save space.
  13. Bioshock Collection for $13.84
  14. https://www.halowaypoint.com/en-us/news/mcc-development-update-november-2019
  15. And I'm over here thinking there's not much you would do for a uniquely amazing mod idea. I would have never imagined something like this being attempted. Neat.
  16. MCC DEVELOPMENT UPDATE - OCTOBER 2019 I typed out an entire recap with the images and shit but the moment I hit enter after a spoiler it deleted everything... so I'll let you all read it yourselves... There's a lot of neat info in this one. Notably how low spec of a machine you need to hit 4K 60FPS.
  17. I've seen gameplay and the depth of field kills it for me. I can't watch someone play with that going on.
  18. I was also going to post a Skyrim picture after modding Special Edition but there was just too many patches and bugs with it that never got fixed after the mods were ported. So here.
  19. MCC September 2019 Update The development team is split between getting content in and fixing game breaking bugs Some armor customization renders from the UE4 engine are shared. They hint that all the content may not be available at launch An update on their porting of custom content from Halo 3, 4, and Reach making it to MCC The next flight is based around PvP MCC PC will utilize Easy Anti Cheat (they're also aware that they'll need to do work to stop it from flagging unrelated programs like anti-virus programs0 They specifically said it'll be used to check for modified files. So there will either be server based Anti Cheat or it's not looking very good for the modding community. They've been in contact with Nvidia and AMD to optimize the game as much as possible. But dual GPU set-ups will not be officially supported.
  20. Batman Arkham Collection & Lego Batman Trilogy All 6 games are available for free on the Epic Game Store. Human Fall Flat for $3 (don't know the site but I did buy it just now from them. They appear to only accept Paypal.)
  21. Here's the August MCC update. Nothing special in this one however. Just statistics about the Firefight Flight and that they might do another one for more data. This one was done in Steam to gather data on matchmaking success rates.
  22. Dear god what have you done... You've doomed us all...
