Hello, folks
Was reading the boards about Halo 2 Xbox modding for a long time, also enjoyed a lot of downloaded mods.
Also made some stuff from "Halo 2 Hacks" book. Looking at Halo 2 in widescreen mode the stretched HUD and crosshairs always made me sick,
some days ago I tried to bring the idea to life, but a lot of stuff is gone from boards, tutorials don't have images no more, also Entity
was giving me errors - some crazy ish.

I hope somebody who knows how to do it, will tell me how is done the resize of bitmaps so their
aspect will look normal in Widescreen mode 16:9. Or maybe someone with free time will do this.

fairly sure you can solve this by changing the settings on your xbox...

Only the aspect ratio and resolutions can be changed on Xbox, mine are Widescreen and 480.
Halo 2 geometry looks normal but the HUD is stretched. Don't know any other options that could
make the HUD look not stretched, like it does in Halo2Vista.

Maybe you know what values can be changed to make horizontal aspect of the crosshair bitmap to be more narrowed that way,
so when Xbox will stretch the HUD - it will look same as it looks on 4:3 aspect ratio.

I'm not about a Halo 2 game that will be able to look cool in both ways 4:3 and 16:9, main thing that is creepy - the crosshairs, if that thing could be fixed - i'm pretty sure people who play on widescreen will love that.

By the way - there is a HEX hack for Halo: CE on Xbox that makes it widescreen:

as we can see - HUD does the same thing in H1 at 16:9

(also there is a similar hack for Midtown Madness 3 my beloved game after Halo)


[But back to Halo]
Was stuck at this tutorial, after cloning chunks the bitmap became corrupt everytime I tried.

maybe this could be a way?
