Do not at all expect the same results as the Halo on Xbox360 and up. No... just no...

Let's clear this up.....

Random company? You mean Saber Interactive?




Now why Russia? Where have we seen another online F2P? Oh World of Tanks! Let's dive into that.
  • Alpha/Beta testing started in Russia 1-2 years before it was ever in English
  • On 5 January 2011 there were 74,536 players simultaneously online on the Russian World of Tanks server, which, according to Wargaming, had become a world record amongst MMO games
  • On 24 May 2011 total number of registrations for all three game servers reached 3,000,000 players (2,000,000 on Russian server and 1,000,000 on Europe and North America)

*Thanks Wikipedia tongue.gif *

Hope that demystifies some of the concern around here. Russia is no stranger to F2P online games, and Saber Interactive is one of the most qualified developers to be handling this development.

Nope I did not see that. New Reactor map looks amazing though! thumb.gif

I don't have a windows install at the moment frown.gif Otherwise I would be going Ida Pro all over this. It looks like it should be possible to start a dedicated server.
We would need to find a way to find the pointer to a C++ object with a class name of
Code:
c_network_session
and call a method named

OK so now that this game is on PC can we get someone to rip the Halo 3 files off the 360 version and convert it to PC?

Starting a dedicated server? Now THAT would be amazing. My roommate(s) and I would be all over that.

In the mean time please enjoy my artistic screenies of the new Reactor map! This is at 1080p max settings. (No Motion Blur)

It looks like at a binary level a straight port of Halo 3. I would be surprised if you couldn't just use the files as is from the Xbox 360 disk. If someone has a halo 3 disk, try coping files like maps and try to load them smile.gif

Edit: As you can see the map is horribly un-optimized. It dips down to the 20-30fps range even on my Crossfire R9 290's. redface.gif

I've been hearing rumors both ways about the engine being used for Halo Online. One rumor states that it is a heavily modified version of the Halo 3 engine. The second rumor states that it is a stripped down version of the Halo 4 engine. After playing around with the game for a few hour I'm inclined to believe that it is running on a stripped down version of the Halo 4 engine. If anyone has map files from Halo 3 or Halo 4 please try and import them and load them! thumb.gif

If it's a Halo 4 engine, then Halo 4 was just the Halo 3 engine tongue.gif
