Hi guys,

I know I've seen mos tof you around the servers, and wanted to ask you all this: Has Halo Custom ever been ported over to Android?

Pretty soon I'll be getting an Ouya. I don't want to start a fan/flame war about it, I know a lot of people have mixed feelings about it as a game system. But it's going to be out there, and if ANY game needs to be on it Halo CE does.

So, has Halo Custom ever been ported over to Android?

haha yeah on that POS OS sure. It'll sooner show up on iOS, or hopefully WP. <3 Lumia 900

I don't think I'll have buyer's remorse; it's a console that will already play a slew of games and do lots of stuff already, without any special developing.

It's getting a lot of support from devs, too, not indie ones. Activision has a FPS for it, and that's the only thing I can think of atm, but things like OnLive are also going to be on it.

So, back to my question, has Halo ever been ported to Android? I'm guessing not but thanks for the replies anyway.

No, it has not. If it was, Microsoft would take it down in an instant.

Okay, I'm not too up on the legalities that surround Custom Edition, but wasn't it released by Bungie a while back, in order for it to be customized?? Doesn't that include other platforms???

No, it doesn't include other platforms. The likelihood of even Combat Evolved going to android is none. The game depends on far too many things.

I don't see why the hell it would even make sense to have Halo on android, when you could just wait till you got home to play it like it should be played. The idea itself is just ludicrous.

So no, no matter what your opinion is about how you think it should be ported over, it won't happen. Simple as that. The end.

Thanks, God Of All Software Development, it's the Ultimate Answer.

I'll bet that it'll happen, regardless of any opinion I have. I never stated any opinion, but you sure have. Very snide remarks, there, your attitude shines through, keep up the great work.

Anyway, sarcasm aside, I've seen lots of things happen in the software world happen that never should have but did.

What exactly makes it a ludicrous idea? The game as we know it has been expanded farther than anybody ever thought, so why not Android?

See, I didn't want to start flaming anybody but you wanted to.

It won't be ported because Microsoft doesn't own Android as of yet and likely never will.
It won't be ported because Halo 1 is no longer viable to be put on a new market.

It won't be ported because Halo 1's code sucks. Android's not powerful enough to run this unoptimised trash engine.

(Good game, but remember, rubbish optimisation)

if you get X window system(==X11) working on android, you might be able to play halo "on it"... but it would be difficult(keyboard and mouse) and it wouldn't be android version...

Bs. This is the most powerful engine I have ever seen for its time, not a "trash engine". You are a joke.

Lol guys you're funny. As an avid android developer, I'd know that some high end android devices are capable of a lot. Android is a much superior platform to iOS.

I'm no coder but I haven't seen how a "ported" version of CE could not work on a decent (say Ouya) Android device. What were the original system specs for Halo, something like a PII with good ram and a 3D video chipset? I'm pretty sure most of these phones have the equivalent of that already. Besides I mean the Ouya, not a phone.

Android is a better engine plus it's open source, and I *am* a Linux enthusiast/user so that really appeals to me. Oh, as to anything being ludicrous, nobody ever expected to see anything Halo related on the >gasp< Atari 2600, but it's out there, in actual cart form to be played on a real system.

Personally, I'm betting a version does get ported to Android. Here: PORTED. Not copied and pasted, it'll take some work for it to run and it probably won't run natively. I'm not a coder.

Halo on the Ouya would rock absolutely.

For its time it was as optimised as it could be, it was designed for hardware of its age. It is not an unoptimised trash engine hence, regardless of what time we live in now.

It is once again clear that you do not know what you are talking about, either that or you suck at communicating clearly.

What you probably meant to say was "Compared to game engines nowadays, halo 1's engine is inferior. When it was made the coding did not actually suck, and it was optimised for the hardware of its time"

Lies, it's still one of the most amazing engines out there, sure you cant make everything as pretty as Cryengine 3 but still, look at what people have done with such an OLD engine. :l

Android? Halo? HAHAHAHAHA!!! You are not even thinking about how Microsoft would react, with the new Terms and bullcrap.

If it is even considered, (1 out of 100 chance) it is gonna be on a Windows Phone (100 out of 100 chance). Period. Microsoft would sue the person who even tried making/porting a Halo game to Android. (Or even iOS for that matter)

Exactly. OP isn't thinking realistically. It will not happen.

That's pretty realistic. Nowadays most things done with software is pretty realistic. I see it happening; it might not end up in a store for sale but as freeware. Most players who play Custom Edition didn't pay for it. What makes this different? Not a damn thing.

Vote for The Pirate Party... or better, in a few years, vote for me, for your local country, and then this might be possible.

Until then, your dreams have been shattered. I apologise and pity your lost dream of a free uncopyrighted world.

I hate to burst your bubble but i was kidding. I can make a pinball game for android and any computer running flash but i can't make a FPS ---> I'm almost 18, if I was able to create my own FPS, wouldn't I have done it already? lol

Even if someone did (which is like a 0.01% possibility), they wouldn't announce it publicly or release it since it would get shot down by microsoft.

Why not make an android-friendly rasterizer that's compatible with gbxmodels instead of porting the entire blam! which, at the time, took overkill hardware to run.

Damn right I pm'd him, at the time I didn't know he wasn't serious. Laugh it up fuzzball. With a few exceptions the responses to this topic have been loaded with teenage angst. Are there no serious programmers reading that see any merit in this idea?

So, you people don't like the idea. Fine. Instead of finding an alternate anything you start trolling. Nobody has mentioned anything very constructive at all. A few posts have been logical and unbiased, though, so credit there.

Remember, microsoft uses windows, not android. Highly doubt that microsoft would suddenly start using android when they already have their own operating system. Microsoft wants you to buy their products and their games to use on their operating systems.


Sorry man, you're out of luck :(

Unfortunately, at the moment, there's this thing called ummm... the LAW. And at the moment, this law gimick thingy is quite corrupt. So it's quite... no, VERY illegal to port Halo to Android. :/
