Should I get H2V? From what I've heard, the editing kit (The reason why I want it) sucks, I have the H2 Xbox version, I was a Vista beta tester so I know it sucks, and someone will probably be a releasing a converted H2 Campaign for CE soon. Suprisingly, I'm still wondering if it is worth my 50 bucks. Should I get it?

/\ why? and jay im not to sure if i should get it either, I bought a brand new XPS from dell with vista on it and now i dont think it was worth it. the only reason to buy it is

A. you wanna play halo 2 and dont have an xbox

OR

B. you want to ONLY (ONLY) make maps, and custom skyboxes. yep, you read correctly.

not really much to do. you could just get halo and download CE and you can do everything that bungie and gearbox did. but im hearing other things about it sooooo

It was originally made for Xbox. And no, why would I get H2V, it's for Vista, haven't you read my avatar thing?

The only reason why Halo on PC is fun, is because it was originally going to be for Mac and PC.

Yeah, the reason why I'm asking is I live in CA, and can buy it. However, I don't think I am.

Actually Vista is all that great. If it's not all that great why the hell do most companies use it and make a damn killing using it? Plus Jo Hahn from Linkin Park uses it.

The only reason H2V came out on Vista is to sell. Microsoft though it would make more sales of Vista seeing as Halo 2 is so popular. It's also why DirectX 10 doesn't work on XP.

And I don't care if some rock star uses Vista; it's once again another sales scheme.

Your assumptions do not exactly have merit. And they are assumptions, let's not forget. The more likely reason that H2 and all new Games in development are made for Vista is that by 2008 (7 months away) XP will be discontinued and no longer sold. see http://www.microsoft.com/windows/lifecycle/default.mspx From a business perspective it makes no sense to produce a game that will last for 2-4 years for an OS that will be discontinued. The support costs and added development costs for two operating systems would make it hard to support.

LOL everything is. In this case it is a better operating system and like it or not all new PC's sold by year end will ship with Vista. I watched this same reaction when Windows 3.1 came out everyone saying DOS was so much better. <laugh>.

no, it sucks real bad, the editor is grotesque.


yeah I'd say, add that AND the fact that we can't legally modify the tools formulate into the worst editing kit ever. if there is a worse one then please tell me...

spark edit for PC....

I personally like Vista and H2V.... they both rule.... i'm sure we are passing up something to make custom guns and vehicles.... think about it.... did HCE have custom vehicles when it cam out? NO and H2V just came out.... give it time!

How H2V is now i don't want to buy it. Seems a little lame.

It really turns me off because those who use controlers get auto-aim and get a total advantage in multiplayer. Worse you can't make to so people using controlers can't join servers. Alot of people will be using the controlers just for auto-aim

ROLF playing halo with a camecube controler. that sounds fantastic and fun.

but not for the N64 controler, it was the worst controler ever built besides the xbox. I totally hate the original xbox controler.

yes i hope they give people an unlocked H2 Hek. Untill they do that i won't buy h2. I am already disapointed that they did that

I would say Get Both, Because you can use malicious maps on pc and since its a map you cant get banned. (duel snipe zbe_soda for me)

no you don't hav an advantage.... you have some but not much..... trust me I have a controller and i like it better because it feels like halo.... i'll get back to the mouse sometime.... maybe after I beat campagn again with the controller.

Don't call me a cheater.... it's my choice if i wana use a controller or not.

The auto aim is very minimal, barely noticeable, not an aimbot.

Kiwi, you can still get banned for modded maps, if they used a hacked HEK to be made. Watch out. You can even get banned for playing them, or doing nothing wrong at all, if too many people start making maps that go around the HEK. It happened a while ago for the Xbox, too many modders, banhammer just started flying. My friend got banned, and so did his friend. (Then he started softmodding in custom games lol)

I hate when that this is thrown... you never know who it's gonna hit.

EDIT: Auto aim? pft what auto aim..... yeh there slight auto aim... but it's not enough to be called "bot" ... i've seen what looks to be like bots though.... god I hope not. (gotta love the betrayal eject thing)

Nah I did it to like 5 people in a shottie no shield 5 flag capture ctf earlier.... i don't care if they meant to.... 2 of them did it in the base to me at the same time while I was t bagging a blue. (beaver creek) then I ejected them..... i don't care... tk me... ur out. lol.

I've never been ejected though.. wonder what it tells you when you are ejected. It's my favorite feature and a must have in all fps's when team mates go idiot.

This makes H2V a must have game. (to be on topic.)

Yes the autoaim sucks because you do most of the aiming yourelf... it will stick to the person if you are dead close but then you can melee and whats the point. Also you can use mods on self created maps ^^ because its a part of the map.

It says you have been booted from the game press ___ to continue.


And kiwi, I'm telling you, you can still get banned for it.

the mods are modding to give yourself an unfair advantage to youself or team. My map gives this unfair advantage to everyone so it is fair

Just because it's fair doesn't mean it's legal...

so what about the bungie things in their names in halo 2?

I dont know if it is for Windows Live/H2V, but in H2 for the Xbox, if you made an account on bungie.net and linked it to your gamertag, in the lobby and stuff it has bungie.net behind the gamertag.

Kiwi, read what I am saying. You can get banned for mods if they used a hacked H2EK, and maybe even if they don't. It is possible that you get banned for no apparent reason. Just cuz its fair doesn't mean the banhammer will miss you. Nor does it mean MS will miss your 60 dollars a year...
