  1. Hi, There has recently been some development in reviving Halo 2 Vista multiplayer with GFWL shutting down the master server unexpectedly in September 2015. The solution that has been developed is called Project Cartographer, a way to play Halo 2 by using the Network browser. It's NOT similar to Tuungle or Hamachi, as it's much more concrete than that. Some benefits include: A fully functioning multiplayer Dedicated Servers Peer Hosted Games Less Lag/Latency (since we're using the Network browser) FOV changer Mouse Fix (no more mouse lag or slow sensitivity) 60 fps lock without vsync or other third party applications Custom Resolution support (includes 4k) Xbox 360 and Xbox One Controller Support Controller Remapping (Duranzo) A new launcher COOP Campaign (a little buggy) Superbouncing (with some minor tweaks, it CAN be done) NO Games for Windows Live (we're not using gamertags anymore so you can pick whatever name you want) Plays better than MCC Features to come (veryyy soon!): In Game Voice Chat Ranking System Map Downloading Right now we have a growing population of around 100 players. To get more information and download Project Cartographer, please visit any of the following websites: h2v.online http://www.halo2vista.com/ - If you go to the forums, you'll find a full tutorial on how to install and get started UPDATE 05/22/2016 Installation Video below Purchasing Halo 2 Vista is NOT required, you don't even need to activate the game for this. If you need a copy of the Halo 2 ISO, please come to our Discord channel and ask for it: https://discordapp.com/invite/0TKY0SDEUHAWL4sG#discord Or just google it, just DO NOT DOWNLOAD the NoSTEAM version Original Xbox FOV on PC (78 widescreen): Installation Video Media (not mine, credit goes to Pain Sherman):
  2. That's interesting, please describe this mod to us. The way custom maps work right now is that everybody in your game needs to manually download the map from the internet to be able to play. We are planning to enable automatic custom map downloading in the future.
  3. Go to your Halo 2 install directory (usually in C:\Program Files(x86)\Microsoft Games\Halo2\) Delete the xlive.dll and the xlive.ini files Run h2launcher.exe and click Update. After it has finished updating, click Play and see if the problem has been solved. If not, try turning off your firewall.
  4. You're so braindead it's not even funny. First, if you think I'm lying about the population, why don't you go and fucking see for yourself? And what proof do you have? You already said you weren't going to download the game in your previous post so I'm assuming that a dumb fuck like you has no idea what he's talking about. Second, how am I misleading people about the "quality"? Every feature that I listed on the original post works as written. There have been countless posts on this thread PROVING that this project has increased the quality of the game. Third, who the fuck are you? Everybody has shit on you on this forum, why are you EVEN HERE? You are the unwanted garbage of teambeyond that keeps coming back to spread his cancerous posts. I'm disgusted that I have to share this forum with filth like you.
  5. You no longer need a product key to play Halo 2 Vista Read this thread: http://teambeyond.net/forum/topic/13305-halo-2-vista-multiplayer-back-online-fixed-project-cartographer/
  6. Thank you for the positive feedback! Yes, there is a way to hide the watermark. Please follow the steps below: 1. Navigate to C:\Program Files (x86)\Microsoft Games\Halo 2 (or wherever your Halo 2 is installed) 2. Open the xlive.ini file using Notepad (it's right under the xlive.dll file) 3. Change the "debug" and "debug log" values to 1 4. Save the changes
  7. We can actually ban players, if you see a hacker, come to our Discord channel (https://discordapp.com/invite/0TKY0SDEUHAWL4sG#discord, go to the halo_2 chat channel) and tell us his exact player name (caps, numbers ,etc.). Most likely there will be a server admin who will boot and/or ban them. With the next update we're going to make everyone register on our website so we can easily track the player population and quickly ban hackers.
  8. That happens every couple of weeks, the games are there, you just can't see them. This means that the master server needs to be restarted on our end. Usually someone will let us know through Discord and we'll fix the issue within the hour. Have you played recently? I've played both the MCC and Halo 2 Vista and I don't feel a significant difference between the two in terms of game mechanics. If anything, Halo 2 Vista has improved hit registration and not even half the bugs that MCC has.
  9. The lag is caused from the number of Colombians playing on our servers. We plan to block them in the future. Also, if you're using the Halo 2 Fixer Upper, it shouldn't affect your controller's aim, but thank you for the feedback. Judging from your profile, I doubt that you represent "this audience" or even this community haha.
  10. Yeah I know what you mean. That's in our to-do list after we enable Ranks, Voice Chat and In Game Map Downloads. It can definitely be done, it's just a matter of prioritizing the main features that need to be added right now. Most likely within the next month, the spawn points will be fixed.
  11. Update your copy of Halo 2 to the latest version Here is the latest update for Halo 2 Vista: http://h2v.halomaps.org/index.cfm?pg=3&fid=2232 ( Run as admin) To verify that Halo 2 has the latest update by going to the Main Menu > then Settings > About. The version should be 1.0.4.129 If your problem still has not been solved, come to our Discord (if you don't have Discord, it is also available through a web browser): https://discordapp.com/invite/0TKY0SDEUHAWL4sG#discord The max amount of players that I've seen on a given time are around 45. But usually the number of online players fluctuates between 20-40. However, unlike MCC you don't have to wait for matchmaking since we are using dedicated servers, you can jump right ingame.
  12. Like LingLing said you cannot just "bring" a Halo 3 Map to Halo 2 PC. However, you could REMAKE said map using the Halo 2 map tools available on halo2vista.com (Go to the H2MT tab, stands for Halo 2 Map Team). Also, if you explore the Halo 2 forums, you'll see that they are already many accurate and successful remakes of Halo 3 maps that have already been made. In the next update, we are going to enable in game map downloading, making it easier for everyone to play custom maps. Because right now, if you host a game with a custom map, nobody will be able to join unless they have that map (most likely they won't).
  13. You need to use xinput9_1_0.dll instead of the xinput1_3.dll that comes with Duranzo. Halo 2 only recognizes xinput version 9_1_0 (idk why, it should theoretically use both). Here is a download for xinput9_1_0.dll: http://www.filedropper.com/xinput910 (File is virus free, disregard Chrome's "harmful file" message) Place it in your Halo 2 install directory.
  14. Just added gameplay videos and picture of the original Xbox FOV on PC, check the original post.
  15. To be honest, the era of the TRUE Halo is over. 343 is moving in a new direction as you can see with Halo 5. Now it's all about micro transactions and making the game easy to play (smart scope, quick reload, etc.) They have turned a unique and diverse franchise into another Call of Duty style game.
  16. Ranks will be implemented in the coming weeks. We have the ability to implement them, it's just a matter of creating a fair system similar to the original Halo 2. But the truly skilled players don't need ranks to define them. :wink:
  17. I just want to say that for those who have issues with Halo 2 MCC should check out Halo 2 PC, there have been MAJOR improvements in the past few months. Right now Halo 2 PC plays much better than the MCC, without many of the game breaking bugs that many of you are suffering from such as matchmaking issues and hit registration. http://teambeyond.net/forum/topic/13305-halo-2-vista-multiplayer-back-online-fixed-project-cartographer/
  18. Here is the official page for the FOV changer as well as the mouse input fix (it's bundled in the same program): https://github.com/sndrec/MouseThingy/releases There is also a second updated version which auto-detects the halo2.exe process, saving some time, but they both work the same way: https://github.com/Revan114/MouseThingy/releases To use (these directions are for the FIRST link): 1. Download the MouseThingy 2. Run as admin AFTER you open Halo 2 3. Find the halo2 process and select it 4. Select your desired FOV, crosshair offset, and Mouse Sensitivity (you have the option to pick both VERTICAL and HORIZONTAL) 5. Click ACTIVATE and the changes should take effect in game FAQ My MouseThingy crashes/stops working after I click activate? Sometimes that happens, just reopen it and follow the directions Will the default options for Mouse Sensitivity affect me if i'm using a controller? The Mouse Sensitivity only applies to mouse inputs not controllers so it will not affect you. I just want to edit one aspect of the game (For example: I just want to change FOV not mouse sensitivity or crosshair offset), how do I do that without changing the other settings? The values that are in place when the program first opens are the DEFAULT values for Halo 2, as long as you don't change them, nothing will happen. So you can just change the FOV and leave the other options the same, the same rule applies for the other options. How come my settings didn't save? You must run the MouseThingy tool every time you open Halo 2, this is easier with the updated version since it auto detects the process and allows you to add a hotkey.
