The Halo 2 Vista game (H2V) is the sequel to the Halo PC version game. Originally developed for the Xbox gaming platform the Halo 2 Vista game is the PC version specifically for users running the Windows Vista Operating system. All map files and utilities on this website are for the Halo 2 Vista PC version game only.

New Test Platform
The Halo 2 Vista test platform has been rebuilt – again – after taking a power surge due to a lightning strike.  Once again it severely delayed the publication of new maps until I had time to re-build a test platform.  In this release there were twenty five new files added to the archive, twenty of them new multiplayer maps. - [Posted: Jun-06-2010 18:26 EST -  (Link)]

The Importance of the Oddball Game Type
When designing a map for the Halo 2 for Windows Vista game it is important to include the settings and object placement for the Oddball game type. That means placing the Oddball in the map. I know you are wondering why I say this so let me explain.

Bungie was kind enough to include the "Oddball glitch" in the Halo 2 Vista game. The glitch allows you a method of discarding your weapons and removing the first person hands and weapons from the screen.  When you take a screenshot, the [F11] key, the screenshot is written to the drive without the HUD interface and if you have no weapons without the first person hands. So you get a clean unobstructed view of the scene.

Here at Halo Maps we are in the process of developing a more extensive image gallery of the maps for Halo 2 Vista and will be taking many more screenshots to show off the design of user created maps. Having high-resolution screenshots without first person hands will allow us to better show off the designs of the maps.

The Oddball Glitch:  
Start an Oddball game with the Plasma Pistol as your primary weapon and "None" as your secondary weapon.

Overcharge the Plasma Pistol by holding down the trigger. Then, with the gun still charged, pick up the Oddball. Next, drop the Oddball. Due to this glitch, you will actually drop your Plasma Pistol as well.
