I have a question. Say I was playing Gears of War on my 360. Could my Brother in law also be playing Halo 2 on his computer on my gamertag?

i would say probably not... your tag should only be able to be used one time at a given time.

but that is not the intentention of these FAQ threads. these are to post FAQs that people playing the game will most likely encounter, and they can come here for quick answeres.

I have a question about the achievements in Halo 2 Vista.
Like thats a PC game, how can you get achievements there?
Will they be transfered to your gamercard? That would be kickass to have Halo 2 achievements there

No. Just like with the 360, a gamertag can only be signed in in one place/machine at a time.

Your gamertag is no longer a 360 tag, it's a Live tag. This means that it will have achievements for both 360 and PC games.

Probably not. Just buy the game.

You just log in with it just like on the 360. The Live guide interface is almost exactally like the one on the 360.

Because you'r live tag is the same on the pc, you can see what you'r friends are playing and what 360 ach's they have and even private chat with 360 gamers on the pc.

I hope you're joking.

You don't connect them. You install the game CD and it automaticly asks you for your live gamertag. You insert it, it applies an update to your CPU and adds the dashboard and everything.

After the update, you can play freely on your CPU. You can only be online on your PC or your 360, not both at the same time.

Hope this answers.

If I download the game on XBL Markedplace, will I still have the opportunity to get achievements? Or is it just the PC-version?

Just the PC version. Especially since you CAN'T download Halo 2 on XBL Marketpace.

Do you have to pay to play this game online (only for Windows XP, not Vista or Windows 7?) for the online achievements etc?

I read it works with Windows 7 32 bit and 64 bit versions. Is this true?

I can confirm this game works on Windows 7 32 bit.
I just installed the game normally, no need for compatability mode or any tweaking.
Works great.

I'm curious, too, as to how compatible the game is with Windows7. I just recently got a new PC, and it's running the 64-bit version of W7. Has anyone heard of compatibility issues with Halo2? Thinking of picking it up, now that I finally have a computer that can run it properly. I'm assuming, when they said "for Vista only," that this was meant at the time of release to point out that it won't work with older operating systems (XP and backwards). But as for newer ones, you'd hope it works just fine. Especially for one of Microsoft's biggest titles, one which still sees quite a bit of online play.

It runs perfectly fine in Windows 7, 32-bit or 64-bit. I have it running on my PC in Windows 7 64-bit right now as I post this from my laptop, so I am 100% positive about this.

I have a Windows 7 Desktop and I can't play it at all...on 32 or 64 bit...I'm very frustrated and seriously considering buying a new vista computer just to play this damn game. BTW Thanks Wreggitt for the Amazon link for the wireless controller. I jumped on and bought it because I am determined to play this game and that controller will DEFINITELY help!

ok so I went and bought a new computer that runs win 7 and H2V runs just fine on it without having to use any patches whatsoever...had a problem finding online matches at first which turned out to be that you never will if you have a gold family pack. Once I removed myself from the family pack and bought a seperate gold account I found PLENTY of matches. I am surprised at how many people are still online playing this game. Have fun and play away everyone
