In order to get Halo 3: ODST, do i have to have a physical disc to play it, because I've been trying to buy it on the Microsoft Store but it says I can't
I have had this issue for the past two - three weeks. My friend is playing on Xbox One (original release Xbox One), and I am playing on Xbox 360. We both recently bought Halo 1: Combat Evolved Anniversary, Halo 3, and tonight Halo 4. All of them digitally purchased. As all are backwards compatible, we figured we would start out with Halo Combat Evolved. We have played other games that are backwards compatible (Left 4 Dead 2, Black Ops 2, etc) and have never had any issues with connection status, Xbox Live itself, etc. When we first started Halo Combat Evolved we randomly would get an error that read "An error occured while playing co-op campaign. Please try again later." At first we thought it might be some kind of connection issue so we both reset our routers, re-downloaded our profiles, our games, etc. This did not fix it. We would play some missions and be fine, but 90% of the time it would give us that error message then kick us out of the game. We then purchased Halo 3 to play together. This also gave us the same issues. We were getting frustrated so we went to google. It turns out that a lot of people are having this issue, but there has been no solution. We purchased Halo 4 tonight, thinking maybe since it's a bit newer it would be different. It was not. It gave us an error message "You have lost connection to the other players in the game. Please try again later." It did that on every mission we started. We then tried Left 4 Dead 2 and Black Ops 2, and it did not give us any error messages. It is obviously a Halo series issue. I already contacted Microsoft regarding this, and they basically said it was an in-game issue and that the developers are aware of it. The only solution Microsoft gave me was to request a refund for the games (which they didn't even after I explained this whole ordeal). The only Halo game we don't have this issue on is Halo Reach. I'm not sure if it has anything to do with Reach being backwards compatible before the other Halos were released or what. I realize that this thread originally started in 2017 and I was able to see that loads of people are having similar issues. Anything that can be said again or any help would be much appreciated. All I want to do is play Halo with a friend.

Thank you
My halo 3 campaign on xbox360 was reset like i never played the game ,and any changes i made like campaign progress.colors emblem or multiplayer character keep reverting back(eg )i was in a forge game as an elite i died came back as a spartan i have a video clip of it in my Halo 3 file share.
Honestly when mcc first came out i wasnt interested in it due to the fact how broken it was but iv got it now and im glad microsoft is fixin these things, i hope they can shorten the time to find a game
Glad to see this post!

I'm having an issue in Halo 3 with the DLC. I have halo 3 on disk and I have downloaded and installed all DLC,
Heroic
Legendary
Mythic
Mythic 2
And cold storage.

But I can't play any playlist requiring all DLC as it tells me "One or more players do not have the required DLC". I've tried reinstalling the game and DLC, even reset my xbox but still having the same issue. In the custom games menu, only heroic maps and cold storage appear.
Are you playing splitscreen?

H3 360 digital backwards compatibal all my maps are downloaded, but the mythic ii maps do not work. on my 360 console all downloaded map packs show up n work, but on xb1 my mythic ii maps do not work. i've done everything reinstalled from in game, reset my xbox, redownloaded all the maps 100 times. what gives? again i do not have this problem with the downloaded maps on my 360 console, everything works. also my xb1 is a pos and doesnt read any xbox 360 disc games. so i cant play my odst multiplayer maps disc. lets get a fix for this. all i can play for halo 3 360 on xb1 is social slayer. c'mon. lets get this fixed so people can continue to play that game. enough. i'm done.
Game: Halo: CE Anniversary

Issue: Campaign progress and glitched achievements.

After loading up my physical copy of CEA, I found that my entire campaign progress was lost, to the point where all the missions and skulls were locked (as if I had never played before). This is peculiar, because I have completed the game in its entirety on Legendary and unlocked every skull except for the Bandana skull. After playing through a few missions, I ended up picking up the bandana skull. However, the achievement would not unlock. I checked, and the achievement was still locked. So currently, I don’t have access to any missions I’ve already beaten or any skulls I’ve already unlocked prior, unless I do it all again.
Halo Reach Online could be smoother
Halo Reach Servers has been acting strange on Xbox One, one second I'm about to play a Firefight but then Halo Server been disconnected. Also my Spartan will reset to the original default and back to private both in game and main menu. Luckily I still have all my armors equipped and rank. It's easy to fix that just by restarting the game, but it's getting really annoying tho and I hope this gets fix. P.S. the Waypoint Service Records on Halo 3, ODST, and Reach aren't working. P.S.S. mine is Disc.
