HALO TRIAL 2019

Halo Trial PC - 2019 ©.

 

 

The glorious days of Halo Trial... competitive... for me were 2009 - 2012 and 2011 BOOM!

 

Let's bring back again Halo Trial.....

 

Halo Trial died by the interruption of thet servers... now thanks to Tavrin we have tools to fix that problem....

 

Halo Trial will come soon....

Members of Open Carnage never see off-site ads.

Moved to General Gaming.

 

Also, being limited to Blood Gulch and The Silent Cartographer got old for me when the Mac modding scene died. What benefit is there to going back to this now?

Halo Demo/Trial is a cut-down version of the full version of the game. For example, on Campaign, you are limited to The Silent Cartographer. You can't play the full game, and if you beat this level, you are treated to a video of Sgt. Johnson ordering you to buy two copies of the game, and you are ordered to buy another two when you close the game. Money-wise, playing the demo/trial is expensive if you have to keep buying two copies of the game every time you play it.


But in seriousness, on Multiplayer, you are limited to Blood Gulch on Free-for-All Slayer or CTF with no access to custom gametypes. Also, you don't have access to the console nor do you have access to dedicated servers. This means:

  • You are stuck on Blood Gulch unless you convert a full version or custom edition map
  • You are stuck with banshees and warthogs being on the field unless you mod the map
  • You have limited access to custom gametypes, requiring you to go through very roundabout ways in order to use custom or alternative gametypes
  • Due to Trial being an old build, you cannot use "Reset Game" as it will just effectively do what "New Game" does except with the current gametype and map, thus you cannot use it to do a count-of-three
  • Someone always has host advantage, giving them a massive advantage over all of the other players

These drawbacks make it unviable for scrimming compared to something like Halo Custom Edition which has:

  • All of the maps and gametypes of the full version of the game
  • Custom maps and gametypes
  • Dedicated servers
  • No-lead
  • The console
  • sv_map_reset (so you can do a count-of-three)

By design, the demo/trial version is inferior and is only intended to sell the full version of the game. Also, scrims and clans exist in Custom Edition and the retail version of the game. Even if the trial did exist, I don't see why anyone would prefer this over Custom Edition or even the retail version of the game aside from the fact that the trial is free.

Thank you for the info.

 

Ce and FV is better, maybe just nostalgia for me... because I started on Halo Trial... and too I loved and hated that game..

 

Salud!

Only Aviable 6 servers from Australia. On Halo Trial, and you need the patch to play.

Pretty sure I have a back-up of the Halo Trial install saved to my mediafire account. Ia also have Halo Trial server tools for doing some neat stuff like playing all the other kinds of gamemodes and using custom ones and watnot.
Was a fun time.
