Is Halo Anticheat 2†causing your game†to crash? Well you can thank OpenSauce for that, because they are not compatible with eachother! Here i will detail how to fix this and†a little†history,†for posterity.

On† Mar 3, 2015 †Btcc22†Released†a†dll†to fix Halo CE crashing when using HAC2 with†OpenSauce v4 installed. As of November 8, 2016†he stopped hosting it, but thanks to an Internet archive you can still† download version †(saved† March 4, 2016),
only Windows 7 is supported by this version.†RÓshÓ R„j†made a video to help people understand†how to use it.

On April 9, 2017†(SBB) Storm†&†(SBB) Michelle†Released their†own fix, but this one uses a completely different method to†fix the†problem then Btcc22's version. They did not intend to make one, but accidentally did in the†process of trial and error!
This version†supports Windows 8 and 10.

How to install
Download†hac.dll from there discord channel in #FAQ directly linked here
Copy†hac.dll †to your Halo CE's installations†main folder %ProgramFiles%\Microsoft Games\Halo Custom Edition\††(you will see†haloce.exe in there).
Add†-no_os_gamestate†to your shortcut's "property target" as shown:
Un-tick map downloading in†Open Sauce to avoid irregularities:

Notes: these are not fully stable & may crash your game

The link to the Discord-hosted HAC dll gives an error.
"Anonymous users does not have storage.objects.get access to discord/attachments/224962170398572554/300682657740750848/hac.dll/."
I probably need to join the Discord server to receive access to the file. I do not know where I can find an open invite.
[s]Alternatively, could a couple mirrors be created?[/s]
Nevermind, I'm stupid. I noticed a few minutes later that there was already a mirror link on the OpenCarnage post.

Why do you call your self stupid? your issue was real & suggesting a mirror is smart.

appears the discord system changed or my link was bad all along because removing the slash at the end fixes it

Edit to orangeJuice; if i know coding this would be a top priority, hoping someone will for me :)

Isn't OpenSauce open source? Why not just nuke the problem for good?
