Halo CE on PC just had one of the more well known modding teams reassemble to do another campaign overhaul, so I'd imagine it's not in bad shape.

Where to find?

There is a high-res Mod in the making for CE:

Ok there you go...   They've got a number of videos on Youtube.

How about a BR with underslung grenade launcher.... 3 barrel rocket hog on silent cartographer, texture updates, brutes and other units...
Yes please... may I have some more?

* DarkHunter wonders if the Halo 1 multiplayer is still at all active.

Yes, I could see games... but I couldn't join any.  AFAICT, there was a bad update put out, and I couldn't connect with it, and don't know how to get around the requirement that you have to have an up-to-date Halo to connect.  This was with both Halo and Halo: Custom Edition (free update / mod to Halo: Combat Evolved that installs as a separate program, sorta like a TC for Halo)

i tried the CE once, and i didn't get it at all.  it was the EXACT SAME as the original.  i'm sure it's my fault for not using it properly, but at the time i was under the impression it allowed server mods to work properly (can actually SEE the mods instead of wandering blindly and eventually hitting an invisible warp portal).  never bothered with it again after that, i just don't like modded multiplayer.  although if it updates single with better graphics and whatnot, i'll have to give it another look. 
I like to stare at the sun.

There is no single player in Custom Edition. And yes, you were using it wrong.

Custom Edition allows you to download and play user-created maps. Without adding those maps, it really isn't any different from the normal game.

Some of the maps are stupid, others are fantastic. Can't even remember how many hours I sunk into CTF or Racing on Yoyorast Island.

Wrong.

Custom Edition is perfectly able of single player mode. It's just not enabled by default, because the single player maps are not included, so they just removed the option from the main menu UI.

If you download a custom UI and the adapted SP maps, you can perfectly play the original campaign or any modded SP maps you'd want to try.
People are stupid, therefore anything popular is at best suspicious.

I love Yahtzee's The Witcher 2 review because he rather nicely attacks the "Glorious PC Gaming Master Race" in that one, even though it is a pity he couldn't get into the Witcher...

Since we've got more than a handful of halo players for PC in here...

CEA forcibly injecting Reach into CE's existance and remaking the old maps once again....

Good, bad, otherwise opinion of it?

Talking about Anniversary multi ? Am not much into multiplayer halo anymore, tbh.

I never liked halo's multiplayer. I always liked it for the single player.

Firefight on reach with one other person is fun though.
