Halo Will Not Run!
ok I downloaded halo trial version to play it on my laptop.
Minimum Requirements for halo are
Pentium III 733mhz Mine: Amd Athlon 1000mhz
128mb ram MIne: 512mb
Vid card 32mb T/L Mine: 8mb Cyberblade XP
IMPORTANT: I have TRIAL version not Full version so the command will be different
Yes I know my vid card isnt good enough to run halo in normal mode, but i believe it can on safe mode. My last computer was a PIII 500mhz 384mb of ram with a Nvidia TNT2( or 1) 8mb vid card and the computer actually ran it very choppy but it still tried to. With my laptop here it wont even attempt to run it. It says you vid card has serious issues which means not enough ram. But my desktop could run it safemode.
Could some please tell me how to run halo in safe mode from the command prompt? I have tried and cant get the right command.D. Command Prompt here is what it says in the read me file about this but doesnt give the safemode prompt, like C:\Program Files\Microsoft Games\Halo\Halo.exe where do u type in safe mode how does this work?
