So Halo on consoles is mostly dead to me, the communities are ever shrinking, and well Reach is infested *sigh*. So I am thinking there is a multiplayer on Halo pc that I am mostly unaware of. Or a lot I am unaware of. Is there a strong multiplayer community, or really awesome maps, kind of like Doom multiplayer I recently got into full of stuff I have never even knew Doom had. Or is it mostly unlimited ammo stuff? I can play Halo online, but I am thinking maybe there is an alternative multiplayer that I am just unaware of. One that has custom maps and stuff. I go on this site, but it is hard to know what I am supposed to do. Any help would be appreciated. Also currently my xbox can not connect to the internet due to a modem issue.

You found the right place then, halo custom edition is filled with custom maps.

If you want to play multiplayer, you have to know 2 things, after installing the game you have to install the chat functionality, and after that you have to download hac2 if you want to play custom maps in multiplayer easily (It automatically downloads MP maps you don't have yet when joining a server)

If you want to get some help with, say, SP maps just ask!

Im waiting for sparky or his disciples to start a whole lost little lamb speech here.

Tldr here
Halo PC: Stock halo single/multiplayer
Halo CE: Custom maps, campaigns, etc, as well as the stock experience.
OpenSauce (OS): A visual expansion of halo CE's capabilities as well as some interesting gameplay allteration capabilities. Additional addon for CE.
HaloAntiCheat2 (HAC2): a set of utilities that make the multiplayer experience a lot more manageable. Works with HPC and HCE

if you're mp focused you're going to want ce and hac2. ce is the game, hac2 adds essential features (map downloading, favorite servers, fov tweaking, medal packs, etc).

os is generally used for single player content. hac2 and os don't play well together, but you can have multiple ce installs on your machine at once. once you install the game for the first time, you can create duplicates of the folder for various configurations. my suggestion is to keep a stock install in case you need to revert, an mp install with hac2, and a campaign install with os.

you may want to add parameters to the game shortcut.
-windowed - runs the game windowed
-console - enables dev console
-exec init.txt - runs through init.txt in my root folder to run the following commands on launch:



;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;
;personal settings;
;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;
fov 110 ;sets field of view to 110
multiplayer_hit_sound_volume 0.1 ;turns down the MP hit sound (for my hitmarkers hac2 optic pack)

;;;;;;;;;;;;;
;debug stuff;
;;;;;;;;;;;;;
;rasterizer_fps 1 ;displays FPS
;show_hud 0 ;turn off the hud
;devcam 1 ;toggles HAC2 devcam

;;;;;;;;;;;;
;look input;
;;;;;;;;;;;;
mouse_acceleration 0 ;disables mouse acceleration
player_magnetism 1 ;enables controller magnetism (sticky aim)
player_autoaim 1 ;enables auto-aim (red reticule, bullet magnetism)
set_pitch_rate .1 ;uncertain. suggested setting for SPV3
set_yaw_rate .1 ;uncertain. suggested setting for SPV3

;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;
;clear the console;
;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;
cls ;clears the console


be sure to look at these tweak guides:

Sweet, I noticed I had no chat abilities, which is like a Halo sin, how are they supposed to know what you think of them as you tea bag them?

edit: also I was hoping to hear it will automatically download the multiplayer maps.

There's a folder called "redist", which contains a file called something along the lines of mxslmenu. Installing that should fix your chat
