Ever wanted to have a Halo 2 experience closer to the original Xbox? Have no fear. I have just the thing for you.

Halo 2 Reclaimed aims to restore the Vista port of the Halo 2 campaign back to its Original Xbox state as much as possible through the limited modding capabilities of Halo 2 Vista. Improvements may or may not be made to the mod over time. Although the mod is made mainly for purists, there's something for everyone here. You will definitely find a thing or two here that can enhance your Halo 2 experience. All information is found in the Documentation & Guide Document.

> Best used with Project Cartographer .

2.) Pre-Patched (All the .map files! No need for patch!):

- Weapon Firing rates
- Vehicle Firing Rates
- Difficulties Fix
- High Charity Carrier Forms Drop Fix

- Regret's Carrier position on Outskirts fixed
- Snow Fog Fix
- Tree leaves fix (Now done by Cartographer for all alpha_white shaders)
- OG Xbox Buttons

IMPROVING YOUR HALO 2 SETUP (Detailed instructions in the OneDrive document):
1.) Enable Reverb (Echo, depending on location)
(Registry edit in: Computer\HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Halo 2\Audio Settings)
2.) Enable Low Pass Filter (Space muffle)
(Registry edit in: Computer\HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Halo 2\Audio Settings)
3.) Set anisotropic filtering to 16x in your GPU's Control Panel for Halo 2 to improve the clarity of textures in the distance.
4.) Use DSOAL for audio enhancement.
5.) Leave anti-aliasing off to make sure no polygon meshes are visible.



1.) Menu strings: ( MEDIAFIRE | DRIVE | MEGA )
The following h2customlanguage.ini file includes the following options (Use the select language option in Cartographer to change):

- Advanced (Recommended): A balance between the OG Xbox menu text strings and an actually functional menu. Includes OG Xbox texts such as "Press Start to Continue" and using "Profile" instead of "Player."

- H2V: Restores the 2007 H2V menu for Cartographer.

- OG Xbox: Restores the original Xbox menu strings, even if these labels no longer match what they do. For the hardcore purists.

2.) Button prompts for Controller Users
- OG Xbox buttons: Visible in the keyboard, and in-game as the flashlight prompt. ( MEDIAFIRE | DRIVE | MEGA )


3.) Remap Button Prompts (For use with Durazno):
- Recon

- Bumper Jumper

- Semi-Bump Jump (Default; Swapped LB and A) (Durazno ini file links: MEDIAFIRE | DRIVE | MEGA)

4.) Crosshair replacement options
Via shared.map
Unfortunately disallows access to multiplayer. If you use the patcher, you can quit the game, unpatch, then launch the game to get back to multiplayer right away.

- Diamond Sniper Crosshair/Dotless Beam Rifle Crosshair
Resembles Halo CE Refined's approach to the classic OG Xbox Sniper crosshair by making it a diamond, which it visually appears to be in the 2004 version of Halo 2. Keep in mind this Beam Rifle crosshair does not match the OG Xbox in this.

> Pre-Patched ( MEDIAFIRE | DRIVE | MEGA )
> Patcher ( MEDIAFIRE | DRIVE | MEGA ) (Can patch shared.map for singleplayer, then unpatch again to play multiplayer)

- Dotless Sniper/Beam Rifle Crosshair
Resembles the 2014-2019 builds of Halo 2 Anniversary by simply removing the dot when not aimed for the head.

> Pre-Patched ( MEDIAFIRE | DRIVE | MEGA )
> Patcher ( MEDIAFIRE | DRIVE | MEGA ) (Can patch shared.map for singleplayer, then unpatch again to play multiplayer)

Via Texmod
Unfortunately has to be opened first, then pointed towards Halo 2's exe, as well as the tpf file, every time you want to use. This is, however, able to be used in multiplayer.

- Reclaimed.tpf: OG Xbox appears to have thicker crosshairs in general, and this attempts to emulate that, though it is not 1:1 with the OG Xbox. There are actual differences in the designs of some crosshairs between the OG Xbox and H2V that aren't being represented with this package.
- MCC14.tpf: Simply makes the crosshairs dotless, resembling the 2014-2019 builds of Halo 2 Anniversary by removing the dot when not aimed for the head.

Fixed CEA Join-Friendly Maps

As you may or may not know, the maps originally released back in 2017 had misaligned crosshairs, rendering the maps near unusable. While I personally prefer Vaporeon's Semi-Refined maps now, I thought it shouldn't be any harm to release these fixed versions I made to properly center the crosshairs, making them actually viable maps to use. I originally made these back in 2018, and they've been kind of just sitting in my hard drive unused. If anyone wants an experience akin to the MCC, and for whatever reason, can't play MCC itself, they can use these.

I know you already provided a download, but I'm curious. May I ask how you were able to rip the sounds and music from the game?

wow i've forgotten about haloce3.com thank you, also has there been, any work done on OpenSauce?.

Sadly, no. It's still 4.0. Been the same since 2016. But hey, it doesn't really need updates.
Also, you're a year late for SPV3.1, lol. Now, you'll have to stay tuned for SPV3.2. It's a big update. Gonna get an SPV3-style overhaul for Lumoria along with it.

Thanks for the links. I was aware of most of the map pack maps, but not of bigass, somehow. Is it basically another hugeass/cold snap/extinction?

I had also heard a lot about the Takedown / Project Lawson series. I think I played an early beta or the first episode? What's the latest version of that?

I think what you're referring to was probably MattDratt's extremely early "Takedown" release when he was just starting out. Here's what to play for Takedown:
- The Introduction: https://haloce3.com/downloads/singleplayer/original-singleplayer/takedown_theintroduction_v1-1/?_sf_s=Takedown
- Project Lawson: https://haloce3.com/downloads/singleplayer/original-singleplayer/takedown_project_lawson_v1-2/

Now here's a list I have for singleplayer projects I'd recommend (might've missed I few). Skip the ones you've already played:

- SPV3
- TSC Evolved
- Takedown Introduction
- Takedown Project Lawson
- Project Lumoria
- Halo Covert Ops
- The Great Infestation
- Spleen
- DMT-OD SP4 Upskirts
- Epsilon Sp
- SOI's Singleplayer Mod
- New Mombasa Beta
- Halo Slender Swamp

Halo CE General Discussion » weird activity... Jul 13, 2018 04:13 AM (Total replies: 6)

Yet another award winning post from Crossbow SR! Round of applause everyone! First the SPV3 "virus" accusation, now this. Whatever shall come next?

You want to know why people aren't taking you seriously? That's because your messages sound suspiciously like trolling.

Although, on a serious note, if you're truly not a troll, from what I can decipher, this sounds like someone using a sightjacker. But why exactly would you have an issue of someone recording your gameplay? Are you telling me you're always on the lookout for gameplay videos, and somehow stumbled on one that you recognized was your gameplay?

And also, what do you mean aimbots filling the servers? I haven't noticed too many aimbots myself, really, though they do pop up from time to time. How would you even know who's aimbotting? How do you know they're not just that good?
