Thread: Windows 7 Walkarounds (Halo 2 for Windows Vista)

  1. #11

    Re: Windows 7 Walkarounds (Halo 2 for Windows Vista)

    I've installed H2v on various Win 7 systems. Only today did I have an issue with the updates. It seemed to be stuck in an infinite loop, it would repeatedly download my profile and the same update. I am aware there are multiple updates but this was the same one over an over.


    The solution was to set the Halo 2 executable and the Launcher to Run as Administrator:

    So go to where you installed H2v and right-click the main executable (halo2.exe) then click Properties, then select the Compatibility tab. Check the Run as Administrator box.

    Do the same for startup.exe just in case.

    There is a new/old problem where users experience this.
    Different version error

    To locate the halo2.exe.cfg file:

    You must go to > C:\Program Files\Microsoft Games\Halo 2
    or for 64bit users, they go to > C:\Program Files (x86)\Microsoft Games\Halo 2

    <Liveconfig>
    <titleid>4D53080F</titleid>
    <lankey>FFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFF</lankey>
    <rating>
    </rating>
    <enableCrossPlatformSystemLink>false</enableCrossPla tformSystemLink>
    <titleversion>10000481</titleversion>
    </Liveconfig>
    A person with this error would be on latest update, however the <titleversion>10000481</titleversion> isn't on 1000481.
    A simple edit in notepad fixes this problem.

    After that, the Windows 7 error will pop up, or for lucky ones it won't.

    Just thought people who do play/bought this game should know.

    No, it's not just the OS, but your hardware must be "powerful".

    I might be getting this soon. It works just fine without any glitches on W7 besides the install issues right?

    e: would anyone who doesn't play this anymore be willing to give up their key?

    NP. Was the only way i got it to work on Ultimate 64bit. Game does run better on a multicore CPU like mentioned before, fried my previous mobo with vista+h2v :P Looks nice with a DX11-card too although it aint supported still looks a little better.

    I had to reinstall W7 a while back and I only recently got around to reinstalling H2V. This time I had no issues at all. I installed the game, then the dedi then the editing kit, ran the game, started the update and then ran the game again and everything was fine. I think I had already updated to the latest G4WL stuff though before I installed this. Just kind of funny that first time I had issues running H2V but this time I didn't.

    yeah it's just a completely random bug that even g4wl haven't sorted out. and now on top of that due to their update in the voice coded in november. in game chat is broken in h2v. you can send live messages, and do private chat channels but the actual h2v public chat channel doesn't work anymore. i miss talking to the noobs in halo2 :/

    One time they talked about having "Windows Live ID Sign-in Assistant" service to stay enabled.
