lol wtf , when it comes to debates on the game dying , i always stay on the side that agrees that the game is not dying , even Dennis will back me up on that like he normally does quoting the download count and such from Halomaps alone , the game is not dying , its just that the majority of players are US so not everyone is on at the same time because of time zones.

As for the rest , i am just gonna blame the fact that there is not enough attractive content released , therefore not attracting people , we need to do more promo vids like i have done , and also there needs to be a load of good maps all around the same time that come out really to get more attention , aswell as more support for nub map makers so that they can actually produce some decent stuff , and then they will spread the word hopefully about how they enjoyed their experiance.

I think Halo 2 and Halo 3 have more players though, because you can run the game without lag (mostly), and the XBox Live feature, including voice, replays, and Forge.

most of the people that have "older" vers basically just downloaded a key off the net or something just to play it , which is sad because they cannot afford to just get the game T_T.

V1..has about 500.. that's a good number, but not much snowgrove, yoyoyast, huge***, coldsnap, extincion.. (i used this crack until i got my disk back) and for me it had 300-400 people, almost no custom maps.(mostly the floods and area 51-55)
hce v 1.07 has 200 people, almost all games are custom, and are not only cmt_snow_grove(i like cmt maps, but there not my favorite). Once i came back on there were only 30 people at ANY one time, i thought it was dead, but 2 days later it went back up to 200. ( i didn't download any new maps in that time)

I play CE, but not nearly enough as Halo 3, which I am ranked and have a skill level. CE lacks those features, which make it boring.

However, I do occasionally have a server of Hugeass. Coldsnap, or Yoyorast's Island.

My xbox is broke so all I play is halo custom edition. I was on Halopc for like 5 minutes and there was a little over a thousand players. Now we just need those thousand plays to come over here.

actually, h1pc has 2000 people, but since i got h2v, the community might be small, but i get even better graphics,characters, and weapons dual-wielding and boarding. And it's annoying when a warthog jeep come in h1, I jump over it, and still die. In h2v, I jump over it and live. Guess thats something fixed in h2v. The only reason I did by another halo disk was for cmtspv2, yoyorastv2(is it canceled or being worked on?), and cmtmpv3(now canceled).

Its because not many people know of Halo Custom Edition. Whenever i watch a HaloCE related video on youtube, i look at the comments and they say: OHHH Whered you get that?, IS that a hack for Halo PC?, No its a mod, I tried downloading the map and put it on HaloPC but it wont work can someone help me?

ETC

Also whenever i go into a server in HaloPC, I ask if anyone has CE, most says they have no idea what that is

do not EVER compare H2W with HCE. There is no comparison. Halo 2 Visuck is locked out of the EK. You will get bored and will crawl back to us. Just like a dying half dead dog.

Now-a-days game developers have found a way to make it so games never die by maximizing the custom ability of the game by allowing things like map making or character traits or pretty much anything custom. Halo CE will never die as long as people have good ideas.

A good thing is that I have a good CD drive, and if not I always can play Halo 3.

You guys just stepped over the line here. I'd edit your psots before you're banned for talking of piracy.

THAT is what I don't get, the EPIC LAZINESS of people that play PC. I mean srsly, duh, LOOK AT THE BOTTOM OF YOUR SCREEN IN THE GAMELOBBY ._. there is a screen ticker right there that says soemthing like "Check out the Unsupported Halo CE, *blah blah url <insert>*"

i mean come on ._.

Halo CE is too old. Even though people are using it to create H3 RIPOFFS (*cough cough CMT and H3MT*), the engine has it's limitations. That's why when I get Vista and a new GFX card I will move on to Halo 2 Vista, because the engine is virtually the same using the same physics engine (Havok).

Halo 2 for Vista doesn't, but XBox Live GOLD does.

Thanks. You've now tempted me to degrade (with Vista, 'upgrade' doesn't apply for me lol) and get the H2 game. Whatever am I going to do with my new pursuit of making Halo: CE maps? Lol.

Sorry, I didn't realize we were ripping off H3 with all our custom content! And you go get vista and h2v. I'm sure you'll love those limitations.

True custom content isn't ripped models with custom textures. Make your OWN levels, make your OWN models and then you can be considered custom.

Make your own weapons too. And vehicles. THAT's what I expected to see in CE.
