I played it not too long ago. There was a lot of the game's graphical functionality that wasn't working properly in Windows 7. Worked fine in Wine on Linux though. Same deal with Halo 2, lot of the graphical features break in Windows 7 but work fine in Wine. Halo CE it was tolerable, as the game wasn't graphically complex to begin with, but Halo 2 it was distracting, some models rendered fine, others looked like they came out of a game from the late 90s.

Oh, about online play. Had no trouble finding servers during the daytime, During the night however it was a ghost town.

I've been playing multiplayer lately :D!! is amazing how good this game is after all this years. I run it on a Windows 7 computer and still runs smooth :P
the funny thing is that most of the people that play on it are from like spanish speakers (spaniards, mexican, colombian, chileans)

I still play it from time to time. It isn't too hard to find servers with lots of people online. I mostly have a problem finding a server that doesn't have wacky mods installed on them. I remember this one server in which the admins could teleport right behind players for reasons unknown to me except to gain an unfair advantage. Well, I killed an admin and after that he kept teleporting behind and trying to kill me. Of course the motion tracker gave him away each time he tried.

That seems to be a problem in any modable game with multiplayer. Some mods make sense, like the death beam in CS:S (shows the path of the bullet that killed you), but others just slowly chip away at what made the game so much fun. Still you can usually find at least a couple "pure" servers in any game, where the mod choice is only stuff that doesn't alter the gameplay.

I need to get back on.Because Halo 1 in my opinion is probably the best out of all of the games and just to reinforce that argument the magnum is awesome in Halo 1 and can't be matched in any other game.

I actually installed it yesterday. So many good memories :D

Halo Custom edition is an absolutely good game to play. It was the thing me and my friends played on the school computers all the time. also I love the fact that people have made loads of different maps for it. Coldsnap,Extinction and Chiron TL34 were the best maps in my opinion

I haven't played this game either for a long time and I should go play it right now. The last time I played it, there were a good number of people playing but nothing close to what other games have. Love CE on PC, freaking awesome.

I haven't really played it much recently, but I used to spend day and night playing both the regular version and Custom Edition. Seeing this thread makes me want to play a little bit right now though, hopefully I can find a regular server instead of a super snipers game or rocket launcher server.

Oh how I miss it. I even enjoyed the free version when I got my new laptop a couple years after it came out...
