With all the H2A Hype...

Recommended Posts

Why has literally no one but me and maybe 2 other people downloaded XBC and played to prepare for the release? 3 months ago this service was almost shut down and now there's maybe less than 200 people that use it weekly. I honestly think that if we're going to hype up a potential re-release of the game, people should be playing it more. Setup of XBC and troubleshooting will maybe take an hour at most and you can find a copy of h2 at any pawn shop or online for less than 10 dollars. It seems like little effort and little sacrifice to go play a game everyone LOVED, so why continue to bitch and complain about the other halo's but refuse to take a little time out of your day to play H2? This option should be heavily considered for all h2 fans and if you decide to join me, add my user: My_Tail; i'll be glad to play w/ anyone at this point. (edit: that's not columbian.)

I just played an English host and it was not that bad. I'm sure French might not be that bad either, but nothing is like the huge lag spikes that I get when I play with Columbians.

Not to mention that Europe has some of the best internet services available, meanwhile in columbia...... (you get my point)

I think alot of people are scared to jump back into halo 2. It has alot to do with just that *bxr hosty* if you catch my drift.

I've been trying to get a few copies of H2 for LANs and for XBC, but every time I have money I can maybe find 1 copy and it's over priced. When I'm out of money I'll see 20 different people on craigslist selling them for under $20. Also am in the process of moving and don't have time to game at all since my set up is packed away.

I really only ever play CE on XBC. I don't like the feel of Halo 2 weapons at all.

You need to redownload and install the app, make sure winpcap is installed properly and forward port 8602 in your router settings. Don't give up because everything didn't work perfectly, ask for help.

 

My Tails whats your XBC name i'll keep an eye for you and see if we can't run some games.

I've never found a good host or a competitive lobby on XBC.  Is H2 PC still up?  That's what I used once they shut down the xbox servers, and normally could easily get an 8 person lobby for FFA or 4's with decent host.

I have never been on XBC where i couldn't find an 8 man lobby of people who know how to play halo 2. you just need to be patient some times and get out there and meet the other players.

I'm working on it... Trying to track down a copy of the Halo 2 DLC/Patch disc. Not a single one in my city. May have to order it off Amazon.ca for $17 used, or $59 new.... Either way it's worth it, Just gotta go get a prepaid credit card as i do not have one my self.

I have a Macbook Pro, if someone knows how to get XBC on it or if XBC could just make a damn MAC version i would totally download it.

I think there should be a big push for more Americans to play XBC, especially for the re-release, it would be good for everyone to brush up on their skills and hype up the game :)
