unfortunately there is no way to transfer screenshots to your PC right now. Before March 31st you could visit bungie.net and view your photos there, but they no longer update Halo info. Right now Halo Waypoint is developing their own system so we can view custom game content, planned to be released this summer, but at the moment we cant access anything.

Also the Xbox uses different file types than computers use, so you’ll never be able to access game files on your PC (unless you have a modding program to do so, but im pretty confident that is against microsoft policy…)

here’s all the info if your interested :slight_smile:

The turnover from bnet to 343i:
Bungie.net Announcement (click spoiler)

Last summer, Bungie and 343 Industries began a transition process for Halo data. On March 31st, 2012 that transition process will be complete, all live Halo data will be managed by 343 Industries, and Bungie will no longer be able to update game stats and player service records, to host new user generated content, or to operate the Bungie Pro service. All currently supported, Bungie-developed Halo titles will be impacted by this change.

Any replacement functionality, and all future Halo support, will be provided by Microsoft and 343 Industries via Halo Waypoint at http://halo.xbox.com.

Bungie will preserve all existing historical Halo data on Bungie.net for as long as the Internet and Bungie’s data storage systems remain functional.

Thanks for making the Halo-era version of Bungie.net more successful than we could have possibly imagined. You complete us.

See you starside.

Halo Waypoint Announcement:

Short Version of some key points:
-There will be a file share feature coming shortly after bungie.net shuts theirs down on March 31st.
-no video rendering
-no nameplate support
-24 slot fileshares for everyone!

Long Version: (quoted from 2/2/12 Halo Bulletin)

> What’s next for Halo Waypoint.
>
> Our friends at Bungie recently announced that as part of Halo’s transition to 343, they will no longer be able to update game stats and player service records, host new user-generated content, or operate the Bungie Pro Service after March 31. This is part of our contract with Bungie, and a planned stage of the Halo transition process. Decisions on future and ongoing support are Microsoft’s alone, and if you have any further questions, please direct them at us, not Bungie. There has been a lot of discussion and some confusion around this transition, so we wanted to take a moment to tell you what will be affected and what’s next for Halo Waypoint.

> Starting on April 1, we will be increasing Halo: Reach File Share capacity from 6 slots to 24 slots at no extra charge. All Halo: Reach files, including films, screenshots, game types, and maps, will continue to be fully accessible in-game, just like they are today. We’re also excited to announce that we are bringing Halo: Reach File Share access to the web version of Halo Waypoint this summer. After March 31, there will be a short period where new Halo: Reach user-generated content will not be accessible from the web.
>
> While the real-time export of Halo 3 and Halo 3: ODST data to the web will not be supported on Waypoint at the time of this transition, data collection is still taking place. In fact, Halo 3 and Halo 3: ODST stats will continue to be reflected in your Halo Waypoint Career. To access your Halo Career, log on to the website, and click the drop-down arrow located to the right of your gamertag at the top of the screen. Then, click the Career Overview panel. There you will see the total number of Halo 2, Halo 3, Halo 3: ODST, Halo Wars, and Halo: Reach Campaign and Multiplayer games you’ve played throughout your entire Halo career. You can also see Games Played, Time Played, Total Kills, and Kill/Death information for each title by selecting it in the Halo Stats Summary column.

> The most noticeable changes will include those features seen exclusively on Bungie.net, such as rendered films, nameplates, and Halo: Reach API keys. Those features are not included in the transition, and we do not have plans to develop similar features at this time.
>
> 343’s focus for the near future is ensuring that the Halo: Reach experience is the best it can be, both in-game and on the web, expanding our Halo Waypoint services, and making Halo 4, which you can expect to hear more about in the not-so-distant future. We’re excited about continuing to evolve the Halo franchise, and we thank you for joining us on this ride.

You are most welcome, glad i could help clarify everything :slight_smile:

Actually the screenshots displayed on here weekly are still coming from bungie.net and are older files from before March 31st, so no mods, lol

Also, anyone with a video capture card can use it to take screenshots.

Make sure you select the flash drive in the memory settings page and let the Xbox set it up to be used as a 360 storage device. It needs to be a least 1GB and will use all the space, as well as delete anything already on there. You then can go to the screenshot files on your HDD and copy or move them to your flash drive.

To get them on to your PC, try Googling “Halo Reach Screenshot Converter” You should find a tutorial, I won’t link it here though…

> Also, anyone with a video capture card can use it to take screenshots.

Yeah, but a capture card video doesn’t look as good as the still jpeg image.

I’ll give you an example: I just took this screenshot with my capture card running at 720p. It isn’t equal to the quality of screenshots from Bungie.net, but it should be more than adequate for what people might need to do until files are hosted online at Waypoint.

yeah, that looks good enough for a preview at least! It’s not the best quality and might not work so well with heavy effect shots but it’s acceptable, lol. Might actually have to go buy a capture card after all these years :stuck_out_tongue:

You know you could just take screenshot regularly, then view it and use the capture card.

Or do it the way I suggested, which results in the same exact images as if they were taken from Bungie.net

> You know you could just take screenshot regularly, then view it and use the capture card.

That’s actually what I did–if you just take a screenshot with the capture card of regular, live gameplay, the quality isn’t as good.

> Or do it the way I suggested, which results in the same exact images as if they were taken from Bungie.net

Definitely, if people want quality (or don’t have a capture card), they should use that USB method. I was just throwing the alternative out there–and since film rendering won’t be returning, it might be a good time for people to consider getting a capture card anyway.

i did abit of searching on the net and have found my solution,i’m not sure if i can post it i dont want to rattle any cages.the problem i have now is playing reach without trying to do poses all the time!.its strange that ms has a problem with people modding just for screenshots(?).i just want some pics of my spartan and such to remember when im old and crusty.lol.
thanks again to all who replied to my post,your all stars.

YOU DIE AT END OF GAEM
