Whenever i try to host a game the message "CD key invalid" pops up. Why is this?
Also what does the "haloceded" (dedicated server) patch does? Is it for hosting games? Any guide on how to use it?

It means you stole the game. There's a database somehow associated with the servers that prevents CD keys that are known to be fraudulent from being used Online.

Didn't we all did? A friend that downloaded the same Halo CE can create games. Does this has to do with the Halo CE Dedicated server patch? Or how can I host an internet game?

Did you guys use the same CD key?


Not all the keys out there are known frauds, he may have gotten lucky. The dedicated server won't help unless you install, I believe it's SAPP, on it, which has an option to disable key checking.



I myself purchased the game from Best Buy roughly 10 years ago, but have had to reacquire it many times since then.

You know what I mean, we paid the game rights when purchasing, and the base of these forums & customizations is shady in legal terms to say the least.

As it turns out it all had to do with installing SAPP, thanks!

Try again. Custom Edition was created explicitly for the purpose of having a standalone development and play environment for custom Halo maps.
