ive successfully installed halo 2 on xp but whenever i click the run.batt my computer crashes to desktop with lowered resolution and with an error window saying "LIVE gaming on Halo 2 failed to intialize .This may be because another LIVE service is running(Halo 2 dedicated server) .ive tried all the other patches and tried to uninstall and install halo 2 but i keep getting the same error if anyone know how to fix this ur help will be greatly appreciated. i really want to play this game without upgrading to vista.
I thought I heard that you needed DX10 and vista to be able to play Halo 2?
No, they created emulators to run it on XP. And didn't you hear, dong_neo? You can't play multiplayer on XP.
And also you don't need DX10 Halo 2 vista only supports DX9.
i know i cant play it in multiplayer i just want to play the single player campaign i just cant figure it out why this error is happening i followed the patch instructions to the latter but this keeps occuring.
Look dong_neo, you're asking questions about something that is illegal, yet you want support for it. As far as I'm concerned, you have two options. 1) Get Vista and then get support. 2) Stop whining to us and talk to the people who created the "patch". Also, did you say you only want H2V for the campaign? I think you need professional help if thats the case. If you want a decent Halo Campaign, play Halo 1 or wait for Halo 3.
Well some people never played the halo 2 have they? They have a XBOX, so they play it on the PC.
