Re: Will Halo 2 Work with XP?
Halo 1 is full of lecherous cretins. Not to mention the game is stupid easy if you're coming from any of the better PC shooters (UT fans, if you're anything like me, it'll be like you're moving in slow motion).

And I heard Halo 2 multiplayer kept the auto-aim in for the PC version on the cross-platform multiplayer! So that might be the source of your "mouse problems"?

      Why games even have auto-aim is beyond me. People need to get some hand-eye co-ordination. I'm not sure about most games, but I had to bump up the difficulty on FEAR to the top level before I started dying on any regular basis.

       I heard Halo2 multi had auto-aim for the consoles to give them some handicap against the mouse-using PC guys.

Re: Will Halo 2 Work with XP?
It's just present on consoles because precise aiming is very difficult without some degree of auto-aim. It's a mechanical disadvantage of analog sticks as opposed to mice.

Also, Halo 2 console couldn't cross-play with Halo 2 Vista, so that wasn't the issue.

      Uh, I'm pretty sure it can. I specifically remember reading a review about Halo 2 and how the Consoles get auto-aim to counter the mouse advantage. Also how Halo 2, as a PC shooter, was very dated.

Re: Will Halo 2 Work with XP?
Nope, it's just that you can use the Xbox 360 controller with the PC version, and you get a bit of autoaim to help you out.

It won't crossplay with the Xbox or Xbox 360 consoles.

I believe the complaints about datedness were quite valid -- it came out a couple years later on the PC. (Two? Three?)

Imagine awakening, and hearing the heartbeat of the galaxy for the first time.
It is like a cloud, a mist that drifts from living creature to creature, set in motion by currents and eddies.
It is the eye of the storm, the passions of all living things turned into energy, into a chorus.
It is the rising swell at the end of life, the promise of new territories and new blood, the call of new mysteries in the dark.

My Pentium 4 Northwood 2,5 GHz (single core!) + 1 GByte RDRAM handled it fine.

Just downloaded all the stuff on their site, and scanned with AVG 8.0.1, all definitions up to date.  No viruses found.  You aren't clicking on ads, are you?  The real links are on the top right.
