Halo CE General Discussion » Any hope for this? Nov 24, 2011 11:17 PM (Total replies: 7)

I actually play with it on and it's still terrible. I usually have to lead about a body in front.

Is there any hope that this would ever be released server side?

It's a fix for the terrible hit detection.

So I got my legit copy and got a chance to play it and it's the same thing as the pirated version, except the pirated version has a lot larger playerbase. Terrible hit detection and the majority of people have terrible pings, which just makes the hit detection even worse. Save your money if you're thinking about getting this.

Something like this is the only hope for a semi competitive experience- http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jwP-GbXnPew

I will have to wait until my CD comes from amazon to come to do that. I just hope I didn't waste money and end up with the same thing, but I have a feeling that is going to be the case as the official halo trial was exactly the same. And what's with you and mexicans?


You must be playing the "mexican" version, lol. Update thread if your pings improve.

Most of the pirates happen to be mexicans, likely due to poverty in Mexico. They mostly have weak computers and fairly weak internet connections, resulting in the 200+ ping you complained about.


From what I have been reading around the net, the legit version is no better. Prove me wrong and show me a full server with the opponents having decent pings in a screenshot.

I doubt it's my connection, as I stated I rarely ever have any problems with other games. The times it does occur, is when others on the network do heavy downloading, etc. No users on the network today while playing, so that is ruled out.

What I do notice is, when looking at the scoreboard, a majority of the players have pings of 150+, and mine is usually 40-80. I think that is the real problem here?

Is this typical? http://i.imgur.com/uHcCcl.jpg

I don't get how so many people can nplay like this. It's especially unbearable at close range, it's literally impossible to hit a target with the pistol when fighting in melee distance. It's a shame, as this game was amazing back in the day over XBC.

Is this just me, or is this a known issue on Halo PC? I have a fairly good internet connection and rarely have issues in other games I play, like TF2 and L4D. 6Mbps down, 1Mbps up.

So I've been playing a few games, and holy poop, the net code in this game is awful. I remember playing on XBC with xbox and having to lead your target a bit, but the PC version is worse. Does the networking setting matter in the options, or is that just for people that run servers?

Wow, the population is very low in the legal versions. I ran into another "pirated" copy that works a lot better now. The population is by far a lot more (1700+ players at the moment) than what is shown above and the opposing players pings are much better.

You can see screenshot here http://i.imgur.com/E5KLZl.jpg

I actually just ordered a copy off Amazon either way, as I always pay if I enjoy a product. Not to mention I have 3 copies of it left over from LANing on the XBOX.

Which is more populated, Halo: Combat Evolved or Halo: Custom Edition?

I had no idea it was pirated, I was under the impression that it was abandonware/freeware. How is multiplayer aspect in Halo? I tried the trial version and it was pretty terrible. Almost everyone had 200+ pings and all the opponents were teleporting around.

I've read in a few places that I can play HaloCE online free. I downloaded a version off the piratebay, but most of the servers say my key is invalid. Can anyone help me out here?
