My graphic is all mess up. I can't get into Halo CE. How to uninstall Halo CE clean. I have tried uninstall and then install many time without success. I am using a Nvidia GeForce 9800GTX.

We don't even know if he's got AA enabled. -.-

If you've got OS, check the documentation on: http://code.google.com/p/open-sauce

Go to your Desktop. Right click. Select 'Nvidia Control Panel'.

In the Nvidia Control Panel, select 'Manage 3D settings'.

Find Halo and select it as a program to customize. Ensure that all types of antialiasing are Off i.e:
Antialiasing - FXAA
Antialiasing - Gamma correction
Antialiasing - Mode (Ensure that this is set to 'Application-Controlled')
Antialiasing - Transparency





P.S. Oh, checking the Control Panel to help you led me to a pleasant surprise. Forced FXAA ftw... at least for me, since I can probably run it. I've got a 1GB 9800GT, which I'm pretty sure is overclocked, thus which is probably more powerful than your GTX.

E: FXAA should work fine for you, since obviously your GFX is better than mine. I just discovered my 9800GT is DEAD. Well, FXAA works fine for me on my motherboard's onboard 9500GT, which is nowhere near as powerful as a 9800 GTX. So try enabling it and see if it works.

I re-check my drivers. They are not the latest. I download the latest drivers and installed it. Re-install Halo CE. Then I get into OK! Once I got out, I can't get back into it again. Any other suggestions? I have turn off all AA with the new install.

Oddly enough, I manage to fix this issue last night through the following:

  • Set your graphics settings to "Let 3D application decide" (or whatever the first option is). Restoring everything to default also works: this should turn off AA. If not, then proceed to manually switch off all AA settings

  • Run the .exe as Administrator. Set this to default via Properties under Compatibility tab.



Not sure why running the game as an Administrator work... I guess doing so bypasses NVIDIA's settings.

Your anti-virus probably blocked Halo.

Running the Halo CE as Administrator works. Where do you set the graphics? Thank for the help!
