Download the XTSuperSpyPatch Program here: http://www.mediafire.com/file/c8eix9ovakp48v5/XTSuperSpyPatch.exe
Right click on XTSuperSpyPatch and select Run As Administrator and click Yes/Allow
Click Browse
Select your Halo ce halo.exe (Default location is "C:\Program Files\Microsoft Games\Halo custom edition")
Click Patch

That's it! Now when you play Halo you will be getting the multiplayer server list If you ever want to UnPatch your halo.exe just open it up in XTSuperSpyPatch again and click UnPatch.



XTSuperSpyPatch will even work with halo trial which means if GameSpy ever stop providing services for these games, this patch can be used to bring them back.

If you get an error message saying "The application failed to start..." when you try to run XTSuperSpyPatch it's because you need to install Visual c++ 2008 Redistributable. This can be downloaded from here: http://www.microsoft.com/en-au/download/details.aspx?id=29



Don't let steam take over halo otherwise we will lose Hac2,sapp,phasor and many other tools like Hac2.

This patch was created for halo trial because the server browser was empty so Tavrin made this patch for halo ce and combat evolved aswell and he knew that combat evolved and custom edition will get shutdown.


Spread this around!

Steam can cause bad things as well. And I would not recommend using this patch or something until we are sure that nothing official is going to happen.

Imagine Halo being listed on the front page of a steam sale. A ton of people would buy it just because "oh look Halo is on sale." Thatd be very good for 343i and Halo PC/CE

And maybe we will even get an update from 343i if Halo went to Steam.

And maybe old stuff will not work. Maybe modding will be much more limited.

I don't see how they could directly port a game that's a decade old and turn it into a Windows 8 exclusive.

this will be good to keep in mind, bookmark this thread everyone who doesn't want to use hac2 like me, it is iffy if we get steam support, but I like OS and wont use hac2, and who knows if or what steam would do with this thing.

My virus protector doesn't pick up anything and the program is as described. It patches and unpatches successfully.

But I have OS installed so I can't boot up the game with it patched.

All the patch does is basically redirect all GameSpy domain names to point to my spare GameSpy server.

I figured the patcher would be an issue with custom .exe's for CE & FV so a much cleaner & easier way would be to redirect the domain names in the hosts files.

The server itself fully emulates GameSpy's protocol 100% for Halo, NWN, Battlefield and a few other titles. What this basically means is if you redirect to this GameSpy server it will function as CE does now; you can access the server lists and host like you normally would without any issues.

I originally wrote the server for Trial because GameSpy discontinued support for it in 2012. I also had a few other people hassle me to help bring a few other titles back to life too...

The server is there. I already host it for Trial and a few other titles already with great success... you guys are more than welcome to use it for CE & FV if you need it.

When GameSpy goes down on the 31st of May it will have a backup of the latest server list for all versions of CE & FV so you can still see the servers online :D

Oh before I forget; here's the host file entries you will need for CE & FV:

Halo CE Client / Server Host Entries:
60.240.173.36 halom.ms1.gamespy.com
60.240.173.36 halom.master.gamespy.com

Halo FV Client / Server Host Entries:
60.240.173.36 halor.ms6.gamespy.com
60.240.173.36 halor.master.gamespy.com

Proof Of Concept at the time: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ySlrsMYYaSs

You can make a bat file to edit the hosts for you too. Copy & paste the following into a text file and save it with a .bat extension. Then run it as Administrator

SET NEWLINE=^& echo.

; Patch Halo CE
FIND /C /I "halom.ms1.gamespy.com" %WINDIR%\system32\drivers\etc\hosts
IF %ERRORLEVEL% NEQ 0 ECHO %NEWLINE%^60.240.173.36 halom.ms1.gamespy.com>>%WINDIR%\system32\drivers\etc\hosts

FIND /C /I "halom.master.gamespy.com" %WINDIR%\system32\drivers\etc\hosts
IF %ERRORLEVEL% NEQ 0 ECHO %NEWLINE%^60.240.173.36 halom.master.gamespy.com>>%WINDIR%\system32\drivers\etc\hosts

Not to forget workshop support will make custom maps be played more frequent.

This. A hundred times, this.
Plus automatic downloads of maps which haven't been downloaded.

Quote:
This server is running the addons:
H4_Bloodgulch_Xtrem3.map
Download addon | View Workshop Page



We can dream....

You can still Mod stuff with win8.1

Most of the HEK works with it.

Just install Halo CE in another partition or run a portable one in an external hard drive.

I wish I could make a partition, but apparently I cant shrink a volume in my ssd, but more importantly I don't wanna give up OS, I love its features, and I could care less about not having a map, ill just close halo, put the map in, and then start up halo again in only 2 seconds

Gameranger supports halo demo and custom edition now.

But it won't be worth it unless they support OS too.

Eager beaver kornmann probably has it all figured out though.
