Og Halo Graphically Superior To McC Version?

Recommended Posts

Please login or register to see this link.

Just thought I'd post this video in case anyone hasn't seen it; apparently the PC port of Halo (which the modern MCC version is based off of) is graphically inferior to the original Xbox version in many ways. Long live the OG Xbox!

Edit: Anyone know why I can't seem to have two capital letters next to each other in a thread title?

Wow! I’ve played both versions on and off for years but never even noticed it was that bad. I always had a creeping feeling in the back of my mind that something didn’t look right but couldn’t quite pin it down. 

Unfortunately when you break it down a bit, it’s not surprising: Gearbox did a hack job of porting the game to PC (‘cause DirectX is sooo dang hard to work with) and 343 smacked some shiny textures on and called it a day.

      Looking for help with my modded Xbox. I had this done by someone (can’t remember who) back in 2005/2006 and I haven’t started it up in over 5 years. I have tried a lot of button combos and it won’t boot up. It won’t even boot up in regular mode either. No matter what I do it turns on then Immediately shuts back off. It is a Halo edition with the X3 and control panel like the one pictured above. Any help would be appreciated. Also looking for recommendations for someone that could repair it if necessary.

      So I bought this xbox from my local pawn shop when i saw it come in for 45 bucks. I know there are better deals out there but this one looked clean and the stickers no the bottom where intact. Knowing the system hadn't been opened the first thing i did when I got home other than test the system (and relive halo 2 for a little while) was pull the case off to prep for the clock capacitor removal. For giggles and farts when I saw the focus chip above the cpu heatsink i tested the resistance on the ground port from the LPC bus and found what i'd like to think is a good condition 1.5v motherboard. Now I am really just looking for someone here with a little more experience to tell me if i found the legendary fable board or if I botched the test somehow. Also if it is real hat are the value of these? Thanks.
