OK, well. I have some spare change lying around. I need to go out and buy a legit copy of CE. Anyone know where I can just go download a legit copy of it? Both PC, and CE.

new content isn't a mod. hhtmods are mods.

(that I know of)There was never a download-now version of Halo PC
And for Halo CE, you just need your Halo PC key to install it, it's an addon

Exactly why I'm trying to buy just the CD key. I don't need the actual CD. I'll only be playing CE either way.

Do or do not, there is no try

Unfortunately if I understand properly the only legit way to own Halo PC is by buying the full physical version. It seems lame, but it is actually illegal to sell the key without the disk.

I think Dennis has mentioned this before, so he could probably confirm whether or not I am correct about that.

Fortunately Amazon has it in stock for about $17.99:
http://www.amazon.com/Halo-Combat-Evolved-Pc/dp/B00009TW6R/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1365534041&sr=8-1&keywords=halo+pc

and you can generally find new copies on ebay as well (sometimes cheaper that way), I just wouldn't recommend buying a used copy... make sure to get it new.

I have bought 3 copies over the years, all new boxed copies. And this game is worth every penny. (especially at less than $20 these days)

Assuming you are an American who doesn't understand how money works-
Take your jar of pennies to a WalMart and buy a Prepaid/Gift Card. Go to Amazon or some other legitimate electronic commerce company; buy Halo. It will arrive in a specified number of days, in the mail (if you have no official address, send it to a close relatives').

If you're not-
Lol IDK. There MIGHT be a way to do something similar wherever you are.


It's not that. I just don't want to waste my time waiting 3 days just to get a CD key. I already have a paypal and what not. Just seeing if anyone here might have an extra copy I can buy from them.

EDIT: NVM already found someone.

As I have said many times there are plenty of grey areas in copyright laws and I don't pretend to be an expert which is why I consulted my company's law firm before opening this website. Ripped models, extracted textures and user created content in general fall into one of the many grey areas of copyright laws such as the "fair use" doctrine and Microsoft's own Game Content Usage Rules, but the one thing that never becomes grey is when profit or money is involved. Re-distribution and sale of product in part or whole is pretty clear cut with plenty of legal precedent the vast majority in favor of the copyright holder. Because I looked into reselling the game through this website I know for a fact that you absolutely MUST sell the media to be compliant with the licensing and selling just the key does in fact violate the copyright laws.
