How is nobody talking about this? Does nobody else on the planet earth crash on Halo except me?
I have an i9-11900k 8 core, 32gb of RAM and an RTX 3090. I have friends with computers 7 years old playing this game with no problem, so what’s mine?
-My drivers are up to date, still crash.
-My windows is up to date, still crash.
-I’ve tried playing through Steam, still crash.
-I’ve tried playing through Xbox app, still crash.
-I’ve tried re-installing and verifying integrity of the game files multiples times, and on each application, still crash.
-I’ve tried closing every single application on my PC other than Halo and playing, still crash.
-I’ve turned all settings to as low as they can be and un-installed the HD texture pack, still crash.
-I’ve turned the HDR content pack back on, still crash.
-I’ve turned off all application overlays, still crash.
-I’ve messed with my GeForce control panel settings, still crash.
-I’ve tried just turning off my other monitors because, idfk, maybe it can’t handle all that going on? still crash.
-I’ve made sure my cooling system on my PC was on performance mode, still crash.
-NO, I’m not overclocking anything.
-I’ve google searched constantly; I’ve tried it all man. I just can’t seem to stop the crashing.
I spent an exorbitant amount of money on a new PC >>>JUST FOR HALO.<<<
And I know that sounds silly, but I’ve loved this game since I was 11 years old. When I saw this new Halo coming out, and it looked just so promising, I knew this was the one I wanted to absolutely lose myself in. I had hope. I had faith that this could finally be the best halo in years. I want to be rank 1. I want to be the best, and I wanted to make sure I bought a rig that was going to guarantee me no problems on that journey, no matter what the workload. But hey, I guess I wasted my time. I play 2 ranked games, then my game crashes on the 3rd and I lose absolutely all progress made. It is physically impossible to significantly progress in ranked with the CONSTANT, CONSISTENT crashing on a supercomputer. And it only seems to get worse/happen more often. Why? Why? Why? How? Why? For Christ’s sake how???
Oh and let’s not even get into how many times I’ve been banned because of it, LOL
I have personally taken to just playing one game, then restarting halo. Then playing one game, restart it again. It’s laughable and saddening that I should have to do this just to make sure I can stably play the game.
After 15 years, multiple flights, thousands upon thousands of hours in game and too many memories to even keep track of, this one just feels personal.
And I know it’s not. I’m sure 343 is doing what they can and focusing on what the community vocalizes the most, which is apparently cosmetics and BtB. And hopefully this is just some weird issue/setting that I can fix quickly, but just haven’t thought of.
But is this seriously just only an issue for a handful of people, and that’s just too bad? what I’d give to be able to just play the game without the potential of it closing on me at a moment’s notice for absolutely no discernable reason.
If someone, ANYONE, has any other sort of out of the box suggestion, I’m open to it. I’m all ears. I’ll do anything to play this game, even though it absolutely doesn’t deserve my time. I don’t know why I’m still playing and still trying, but I am.
And above all else, I just had to get this issue out there. Hopefully it affects something.
Have a good day
P.S. Just for clarification, I play games like No Man’s Sky, God of War and modded Skyrim on Ultra and 4k settings with almost 0 problems. It’s a good PC.
TL;DR: Constant, consistent crashing on a supercomputer with no foreseeable solutions.
