Was watching RvB the other day when I realized just how much I missed playing Halo CE. I figured with us all being PC gamers these days, and Halo CE actually feeling good on a mouse unlike Halo 2, we should all get together and play this beast of a game. I’ve even managed to make it easy for you all, and am in the process of setting up servers for it with my mate from Reason since he has a Windows server he can set it up on.
So since everyone is mainly here from a background of Halo, and are now all PC gamers, I’ll be slapping together a 2v2 tournament in the next few weeks to help Reason test their new tournament software they are developing. Settings will be standard (found here), except with Prisoner also in the map list to make 7 maps for the veto system. Will just be a one day cup, where we will sort out the best day to hold it.
As for the game itself, like I said, I made it easy for you all. Download this file, and then run haloce.exe. We will be running the custom edition, for the sole purpose of that version has been modded to allow F6 to edit your fov. Press F6, drag mouse until happy, press F6 to save it. Aside from that, everything else is default. It’s also running the latest 1.10 patch released a few weeks back. The point of the patch was to allow servers to continue after the death of Gamespy, but you can also set to 1080p by default now.
If anyones interested in running some custom games we can do so from tomorrow when the server is up.
MAKE SURE TO RUN HALOCE.EXE
