Default Re: Halo 2 Vista

alright, I just "got" it. Yes, those are quotes.

Turns out I can only play the first mission. I have to say it ran pretty well, the game is quite better than I expected. Hopefully theres a crack, or I can find something out. I don't want to buy it only because I will play it occasionally and $50 just wouldn't be worth it.

So it installed like a trial version and you can only play 1 mission??
I'm sure someone will release a crack very soon..

I have to reinstall Vista to play it, so I have to wait to get my Raptor in the mail since I'm gonna dual boot Vista on that and XP on my current hard drive.

yeah, I can't seem to find a crack anywhere, nothing seems to work. Once you complete the first level you've gotta activate it.

Cheap ass microsoft

I guarantee someone will put out a crack relatively soon...

It's Vista only.

Yeah, that's what I'm hoping as well. I left it on my PC just in case.

People will always find ways around the copy protection. It's just a matter of time.
