What Hans is talking about is the hit registration between the OG Xbox and Pc versions. In Halo CE the pistol is off at times where you either see your bullet hit and it causes no damage or your aim is spot on but it misses the target. This goes for the sniper as well. The shotgun is hit or miss. I run a lot of Halo CE Customs and when I do shotgun no shields one hit should kill someone but the shotgun doesn't register some of the time. Same thing with the BR in Halo 2 at times it seems off plus throw in fall damage which isn't in Halo 2 at all except in the vista version and the spawn system isn't like the OG Xbox version that's what Hans is talking about. It'd be great if they fix the weapon registration to the OG Xbox version but keep all the extras from the PC versions. The Banshee, fuel rod gun, flamethrower and 6 maps for Halo CE and the 2 maps for Halo 2. It would be a win win.
Dear Frankie,Just curious, how is the fact they used the PC versions as a base going to change the game?
Why is the code for Halo 1 and Halo 2 on MCC from the PC Versions of the game and not the original Xbox versions? Like many others, i bought the Xbox One for Halo 1 and Halo 2 on MCC because I grew up playing H1/H2 lan parties and tournaments. Even after you semi-fixed the matching system, the Halo 1 & 2 gameplay & experience were such disappointments because they didn't play like the original Halo 1 and 2 games because you used the PC code.... Will you be addressing this at all or are you simply fixing the matchmaking system so people don't have long wait times...
I also agree with (but don't care nearly as much as what I wrote about above) the sentiment you should bring back the 4v4 H1 playlist, even if it's unranked.
If the only fix is a slightly shorter match time wait for MCC, there's no point in buying a new xbox.
I'm glad you guys aren't ignoring this game, but the fact I sent repeated messages to Dan Ayoub, and they were completely ignored with no response for over a year, and then I later find out, he just ditches the game and leaves the company, doesn't give me much hope about Halo's future.

They are running at 60fps vs the OG Xbox 30fps originals. The only differences between the PC base games and the OG Xbox are down to the updates to the physics engine (some super jumps were patched) and the slight change in FOV (reduced vs OG Xbox) but the core game is identical.
You mention LAN parties, which we all love. These features were in the PC versions also but their omission from MCC was a mistake.
Could you clarify what you mean by the gameplay is different?
I’m not personally familiar with any of the Halo CE issues you mentioned (both in the MCC or Halo PC) but I won’t deny they’re there just because I haven’t experienced it.
Regarding Halo 2, yes those issues are definitely present as a result of the game using Halo 2 Vista as a base, as fall damage is a bug that was never patched. The Battle Rifle damage is fine during campaign but the network detection is sketchy, once again due to Halo 2 Vista being used as a base and may cause the BR to appear to do no damage despite you ‘hitting’ them on your screen.
At least regarding Halo 2 anyway, I can 100% confirm all the issues you mentioned are due to the bugs that were never fixed in Halo 2 Vista are the reason why Halo 2 MCC has them too.
The likely reason as to why both Halo PC and Halo 2 Vista were used over the Xbox versions are due to the fact most of the work has already been done. For example, Halo PC and Halo 2 Vista already have support for 1920x1080, widescreen, higher resolution textures etc rather than having to add support for it and porting the original code to the x86 platform, which the Xbox One and the PC versions use.
Regardless, thank you for clarifying what the poster meant. I’m probably going to investigate the CE issues you mentioned because i’m interested now so thank you for those details too. Once the MCC has been patched as 343 says it will, Halo CE and Halo 2 in particular should become more enjoyable.
