See that? Good. Now bookmark this page, because you'll have to come back here if you want to see it again. As an added treat for our loyal users still playing Halo PC after 5 years, I got clearance to discontinue the CD check as part of this patch! This doesn't change the licensing (don't pass around your disc), and you still need your unique product key to play online, but I figure your CD is probably pretty scratched after all this time, and it deserves a break. Anyway, on to the patch...

This is build 1.0.8.616, and is the official version of the test release from the other day. To give you confidence that you're playing on a patched server, this build is not backwards-compatible with old servers, nor will the new server work with old clients. For this reason, I'm posting the patches here a day and a half before I'll mark them for auto-updating in-game. This way, server operators have a little time to roll out the new bits before Friday's auto-patch of the client.

If you haven't been following the pre-release threads, this patch contains several fixes for server-crashing security bugs, and that's it. As I have discussed elsewhere, anti-aimbotting is an arms race that we're not going to enter for this old game, and this patch doesn't address that or any other feature-level changes. I should also note that Bungie does not officially support Halo PC (which is owned by Microsoft, not Bungie) but since the build machine is under my desk and not at MS, I fixed these several bugs as a favor to the community. I can't promise any future support, nor can I open-source the code for community development.

There are 4 patch files. If you aren't sure which one you want, you want the first one only.

Halo PC 1.08 Patch: http://www.bungie.net/images/games/halopc/patch/halopc108patch.exe
Halo PC 1.08 Dedicated Server: http://www.bungie.net/images/games/halopc/patch/haloded.exe
Halo Custom Edition 1.08 Patch: http://www.bungie.net/images/games/halopc/patch/haloce108patch.exe
Halo Custom Edition 1.08 Dedicated Server: http://www.bungie.net/images/games/halopc/patch/haloceded.exe

To use the patch files, you must already have the corresponding game installed. To update your dedicated server install, just drop the appropriate file over the old one. Halo "Custom Edition" is an "unsupported" (but popular) version of the game that allows user-created maps, and is available for download from Gearbox and other mirror sites.

Remember, the game will require this patch to play online starting Friday (and I'll update the MOTD at that time too.)

Enjoy!

-Roger

The patch for CE isn't working properly for me. It stops working at strings.dll and then asks me to send an error report which makes me sad face :(

Yay for Patch 1.08. It's a little late for me because my CD shattered last year and I've been using an emulator since that accident.

It's real
Link to bungie.net topic and employee who posted it:

It's even on their home page, a little bit below the bottom of their weekly update.

And I didn't know bungie.net had a img /img option. But it instantly blocks your image.

You could just wait a couple of days, until its a compulsary auto-update. Then everyone should be running 1.08 :O

It'll be out by tomorrow. I think people with cd-cracks could get this, sawnose said the only problem would be people who were using v1.05, they'd have to use v1.5.1 to upgrade.

Yelo: A slight hack made by Kornman00 that allows you to change where your gun is located on the screen (Instead of being off to the right, you can have it go to the left, or center it, COD4-style) and a bunch of neat stuff like that.

And what a coincidence... The new 1.08 update becomes mandatory 8/8/08.

Alldev works for the reason that it's the developer mode of Halo. Bungie would never get rid of it, especially since people make maps and want to look around and make sure it's bug free or close to.

I"ll have to test the aimbot (i have one... but I use it for getting back at botters only.... and if ganon reads this... just don't reply to my aimbot statement) and see if it works... I think it will though but I hope not.

I wouldn't worry about it. Sooner or later some people with programming skills-maybe even the original creators themselves-are going to re-create these for the new version of Halo simply because they want to.

It's the same reason for why the original trainers were created in the first place, and it's the same reason for why such good work is produced from the CE community for no profit of any kind.

A few fries short of a Happy meal? Never heard of that... but if that's the case, he must be missing his drink and his Micky Dee's toy as well (no sexual implications with "toy", as Happy Meals come with a little toy, for example sometimes they give out hot wheels cars, and also give out disney toys with meals... for those of you too obsessed with OMG MCDONALDS MAKES PPL FAT and have not seen light since then.)...
