This worked fine on my computer. Too bad the game sucked. I would've taken the game back but my nephew opened the packaging before I had the chance.

Shitty port that took forever. They didn't even change the Press A / B / Y / X colored buttons. Halo 1 was much better.

Sorry I don't know then. I used that "hack" to install and play the game.

It took forever because they probably signed some deal with MS to make it a Vista exclusive title. But I agree the game was terrible. I don't get the fascination with Halo.

Halo for PC was a joke. They completely screwed the game up when they removed coop on the port to PC. I didn't even waste my time with the Halo2 "hack".
