Hello there! I am gospel_virus, and before I ask for any assistance, I would like to calm the moderators by stating that I do indeed own a legal copy of Halo 2 for PC obtained by plunking down $50 USD at my local Wal-Mart.

There. Now that that's done, I would like to ask a question: has anyone gotten Halo 2's multiplayer to work on Windows XP? It's not essential, so don't expect outbursts of rage from me, but I would like to explore the possibility of doing machinima with Halo 2 in the future, so any assistance in this regard would be greatly appreciated.

Thank you for your time, gospel_virus

P.S.: Dear mods, I know you're probably getting frustrated with the "ZOMG HALO 2 ON XP!!!11!!!1one" threads. Hopefully, I can show you that there are intelligent people out there seeking solutions like that.

Mine works for a sec the freezes because of my pc. I just go to guide then try and sign it. It asks for my key. I enter it and then it downloads my account. Then freezes. I need a new pc, so it might work for you.

That souds like the game is causing a conflict rather than your PC not working, so long as you can actually play the campaign.

As for the thread starter, you have no issues from me, it's usually the other people in the thread who ruin it for others. As for it working in XP, my only suggestion would be to type into google Halo 2 XP multiplayer and see what comes up...so long as you haven't already tried to do so.

I have also bought Halo 2 ($50), and I dont have hardly any problems with compatability with XP, and I can play the entire campaign mode without a hitch, but when I try to log into live, it works as far as I can see, then when It trys to update, I get an error saying "Halo 2 Patch - Command line option syntax error.Type Command/? for help" If I find out how to resolve this I will post my solution, but I cant find it anywhere so, Please help! lol

Try downloading the patch from Microsoft Game Studios - Halo 2 for Windows Vista (support section) & then try logging in to live.. The patch installs fine, but I haven't tried multiplayer yet.. Could be also the cracked file that's used which blocks the game.. Cos if you go into 'about' option in the menu it tells your product id or something like that is just bunch of zeros.. & stuff, I'm too lazy to write more atm, good luck ppl.. :beer:

I applied the update from the Halo 2 Vista website, and it applied successfully, but I still have the same problem, when I sign into live it still says "an update is available for your game from live" and then during the update it goes to desktop with the same syntax error dialog as before.... " Halo 2 Patch - Command line option syntax error.Type Command/? for help "
