    I really notice a difference between ps2.0 and ps1.4 when I am zoomed in (ie. pistol scope). The enemies and everything looks alot better with 2.0. The textures, with 1.4, seem a little grainy (only thing i could think of to describe it). I have been using the 51.75 drivers and i am going to try 45.23's tonight to see if there is a big difference.

    Dude ! is that ok for you ???? Forget the average frame rate.. what matters here is Below 30fps= 40% (time) 19% (frames)

    That sucks really bad... are we nutts ?? I saw a lot of posts like yours ... we came to a point where people are saying HALO runs fine on my system but have 40-60% below 30FPS with a FX5900 ultra.

    edit: i want to have "below 30 fps = 0%" on my Ti4200 and that would be fine cuz this game is no better looking than ut2k3.

    You gotta run Halo under the compatibility of Windows95...

    here's what fixed it for me.

    uninstall old drivers.

    use Nasty file remover.

    Install 44.03 Nvidia release.

    Works fine without any tweaks. Before i used NFR it gave error with every det i tried.

    The direct3d error is caused by using a refresh rate fix or proggy. Might be fixable by running it in compatability mode, if not disable the refresh fix that you are using. Oh and imo the game kinda sucks, there's no excuse for it running so poorly when the gfx are nothing special.

    Christ I said like 3 days ago to stop using Refresh forcing software if you get boot up errors.
    Enough of this Windows 95 compatability crap.
    As for framerates ANYTHING over 800x600 will not run at 60 frames you will be lucky to hit 40 with medium detail.
    Games a bag of **** don't bother with it.

    Setting compatibility has nothing to do with performance... blame it on yourself, or your computer =P
