For those of you who didn't already know, Halo 2 Vista is free, and the servers are still up.(Thanks to Bsangel and the Halo 2 community.) Skip this portion of the guide if you want to jump right into installing/playing Halo 2 Vista and already know your system can run the game without problems Minimum Specs: 2 GHz Pentium 4 Class Processor (or x64) 1GB of RAM Presumably DDR2 @ 600-1000MHz 7GB of hard drive space(the Dedicated Server and Map Editor require additional hard drive space) Nvidia 6100/ATI x700 video card or above DirectX® 9.0c or later Resources needed to play Halo 2 Vista: If you have any doubt at all about the safety and operation of software made available to you, do not download the software. (By following this guide I will not be liable for any direct, indirect, incidental, special, exemplary, or consequential damages (including, but not limited to, breach of expressed or implied contract; loss of use, data or profits; business interruption; or damage to any equipment, software and/or data files) All files provided here have been virus scanned; however, for your own protection, you should scan these files again (as you should for any file downloaded from the internet.) CD Keys Games for Windows Live Client Halo 2 Vista Manual Update MF.dll (H2V won't work without this .dll, but you can find one from anywhere online. To help verify the integrity of this file, confirm it's only 4kb in size. It must be a H2V-specific MF.dll.) You also need the Halo 2 Client, which can be downloaded and installed in 2 different ways: Borrow a disc from a friend. Apply the MF.dll, and follow instructions to apply a CD key.(I personally haven't used this method and don't know how successful it is, so try it at your own discretion.) Disclaimer: I do not condone the use of illegal torrents or the sharing of copyrighted material, you assume all responsibility downloading any and all files. Acquire the Halo 2 Vista game files, follow standard installation, or follow given instructions.Apply the update, then the MF.dll file afterwards. Run Halo 2 Vista, close the prompt that asks for a CD key, skip through intro cinematics. You will be asked to login to XBL, login, and paste in a CD key from the list. If the CD key doesn't work, try another key, as it's probably already been used. XBL will work with your Gold or Silver account, you can do everything except send voice messages. If you need help, add me on twitter: @Roosterru Halo 2 Vista still has a decent-sized community, most of which play competitively. (10-50 online every day) Wired controllers work with Halo 2 Vista. If you don't play Default, or want to change your button layout and don't want to use a keyboard, I recommend Joy2Key (Once again, you assume all responsibilities when downloading files online.)
