Hull breached!

It seems like our quiz is doing very well! So well, that our SQL database is being overloaded. You will know when this happens when the poll on the right side literally says "Too many connections". If this happens, please just be patient, it will return as soon as everyone is done figuring out if they have a Halo over their head :tongue: (are addicted to Halo).

In other news...

Preformance issues in Halo PC have been reviewed in this post on Gearbox forums.

Quote:
You can trade performance for graphics as much as you like. I personally recommend getting as many graphics features as you can while keeping the game locked at no worse than 30 FPS. I'm able to do this fairly easily even with my home machine - a GeForce 4ti with a P4 1.6ghz and 512mb of RAM.

So this means that if you would rather see the game and all of its features, you can max the options, but make preformance lower. Or, if you really want the FPS part of the game, you lower the options, and that game will move faster.

Quote:
The bottom line, though, is that Halo is fun and the code is fast at what it does (it's doing a LOT). Is was that way when we got it and some of the smartest programmers available from hardware manufactuers, the DirectX team, Microsoft, Bungie and Gearbox worked very hard and very long to make it do more things even faster than before.
-Randy


We are sure to enjoy this game no matter what we do with it!

Sorry *again* for the lack of updates, this other site of ours has gotten us all tied up at the moment.

But, I heard a rumor recently that a certain site will be given a MAJOR facelift hopefully in the coming month :laughing: - I wonder which site it could be...

Halo: PC goes GOLD!
Posted: 3:50 pm by Wolfy -
FROM HALO.BUNGIE.ORG - PRESS RELEASE ON HALO: PC.

Halo for Windows Goes Gold

Microsoft Game Studios, Bungie Studios and Gearbox Software today announced that Halo® for Windows has gone gold and is scheduled to hit store shelves on September 30 for an estimated retail price of $49.99 (U.S.).



In the distant future, the fate of mankind hangs in the balance as a fierce alien faction known as the Covenant pursue the fleeing Earth forces to the ancient ring-world Halo. As the legendary cyborg super-soldier Master Chief, you must battle to unravel the mysteries of Halo and save humanity from the ruthless Covenant threat.


Halo, the critically acclaimed best-selling Xbox game, is coming to Windows gamers for the first time with new exclusive features, including online multiplayer support, new maps, vehicles and weapons. Halo is optimized for the PC with the precision offered by the mouse-and-keyboard and full support for high-end hardware including graphic resolutions up to 1600 by 1200 and beyond. Halo's online multiplayer feature will enable players to battle it out with fellow gamers worldwide in a variety of individual and team-based games.

"Halo: Combat Evolved," its latest game, has achieved phenomenal success on the Microsoft Xbox video game system. More information on Bungie can be found at http://www.Bungie.net/.



Gearbox Software was founded in January of 1999 by a group of experienced 3d game artists, designers and engineers in Dallas, TX. The developers at Gearbox Software have contributed to many of the most acclaimed franchises in interactive entertainment - including "Civilization," "Duke Nukem 3d," "Quake", "Half-Life", "James Bond 007", "Counter-Strike", "Doom", "Tony Hawk's Pro Skater" and now "Halo: Combat Evolved."

New Playlists Up!
Posted: 5:12 pm by Jag - Halo 2
The new playlists for Halo 2 have been up for a while if you've missed them! And they're a blast!

Team Action Sack: This playlist is what you should be playing if you're looking for a chaotic and unpredictable experience! Some games include Rocket CTF, or SWAT Fiesta, Ninja Assault - and much more! These games were submitted by the fans - I submitted Invisaball a while ago, and now you can play it in Matchmaking! Bungie does listen to the fans!

Rumble Armory: This is also an action-packed playlist, abiet less insane! This playlist pits you against up to 7 other people, with games that feature a single weapon set - games include Brutes, Swords, Sentinal Beams, and other similar games! Give it a try!

6 vs 6 Battle: This is basically something to fit between Team Skirmish and Big Team - 6 vs 6 battles using a mixture of the Big Team playlist and Team Skirmish.

Additional Changes: The Head to Head and Major Clanmatch playlists are gone - forever... Minor Clanmatch has been renamed 'Clanmatch' and now supports up to 5 people, but your Minor Clanmatch ranks remain intact. Team Snipers is now ranked - and your 'invisible' rank is now visible! If you played a little, you may be a 5 or 6, but some people are in the upper 20's! Big Team now supports only 7 or 8 players per team, to make way for 6 vs 6 Battle.

...a pretty significant update, to say the least.

Posted: 3:12 pm by Jag - Weekly Whats Update
Bungie finally posted another WWU - and this one contains some very, very important information regarding the new playlists:

Quote:
~Major Clanmatch and Head to Head have been removed.

~Minor Clanmatch has received a change in configuration. It will now be called Clanmatch and will allow for team of 4-5 clan members each. Your Minor Clanmatch ranks will persist to the new Clanmatch playlist.

~Two new unranked playlists have been added, Rumble Armory and Team ActionSack.

~6v6 Team Battle has been added as a ranked playlist featuring team sizes of 5-6 players each.

~Big Team Battle now supports only larger team sizes of 7-8 players each.

~Team Snipers is now a ranked playlist and has a total of 15 maps. Your hidden rank will now be displayed.

~WE DID NOT WIPE ANY STATS, STOP LISTENING TO RUMORS! CALM DOWN!


Important information indeed! The WWU also contains a little bit of an FAQ on how to change your 360 theme, and some stuff about the Halo Movie... Read it here!
