For giggles I picked up a Radeon 5970 (Crossfire on a single card) off ebay for my budget gaming rig. Tonight I fired up Halo CE v1.0.10 for some online action, got the start up splash screen, the resolution switched to my preferred 1600x1200, and then my FPS counter went into rolling four digits and instead of the game UI I got these trippy patterns of flashing black bars overlaying the splash screen image. The UI was up, but not visible. I had to control-alt-delete and kill Halo with the Task Manager. On the other hand, non-Custom Edition Halo v1.0.9 runs fine. Anyone have any ideas what's going on?


OK, I got this. I had previously forced the card's antialiasing (not anisotropic filtering!) to 4X for another game. I reset this to "application control" and this got CE working. It is odd that 1.0.9 did not get disturbed by this where 1.0.10.

Navigate to your Halo PC folder in "C:\Program Files (x86)\Microsoft Games\Halo" and place your "config.txt" file on your desktop so that you can edit it without a permissions conflict.

Remove the two forward slashes from "//UseAnisotropicFilter" on lines 702 and 761 for nVidia graphics users, or lines 323 and 372 for AMD/ATi graphics users.

Save the file, and place it back in your Halo folder.

Now your copy of Halo has anisotropic filtering

Damn, that's one I have not heard of before. I will give this a try -- thanks!

Disable anti-aliasing in the amd control panel. This game hates anti-aliasing methods that aren't post processing.
