Reminder: Halo 1 PC multiplayer still online

OP acefrozen1

For those of you that have a dusty old CD sitting in a closet somewhere, this is a reminder that Halo Combat Evolved and Custom Edition multiplayer services are still up and running in 2019 thanks to Bungie! As an ex clan leader, the PC version of Halo Custom Edition has and will always have a special place in my nostalgic bits. I hope you guys enjoy this throw back to a bygone era while we wait for the upcoming projects related to this great franchise!

If you have Halo Combat Evolved (full CD):
Install the game as normal
Download the 1.10 patch from Bungie in the spoiler below
Move the 1.10 patch exe into the halo install folder
Run the patch

For Halo Custom Edition:
Install the game as normal (Install files from Halomaps linked below)
Download the 1.10 patch from Bungie in the spoiler below
Move the 1.10 patch exe into the halo install folder
Run the patch

Thats it! You can now play old school Halo multiplayer online.

NOTE: A CD KEY IS REQUIRED. While CD key checking has been disabled on most dedicated servers, a CD key is still required to install the game. Please source your keys responsibly.

Loved playing CE on PC, it was my first foray into Halo! Would love to jump back into some of the servers and see if i've still got it!
