Resolution
  • Halo 2 in windowed mode can support almost any resolution that matches your desktop.
  • To achieve this, make sure Halo 2 starts in windowed mode, and the press the Windows Key and Up Arrow on your keyboard at the same time to maximize the Halo 2 window.
    • There are issues that can occur, such as broken menus, missing text, improper scaling and other weird bugs
  • If the game appears to be pixelated / scaled improperly, press Win+Down arrow to restore the original window dimensions and Win+Up arrow again. This bug seems to occur if you make resolution changes during a loading screen.
  • If the game window is over 1289 vertical pixels, the in game kill feed text disappears. One solution we found is to replace the font table with a different version. (I'm sure there are more elegant solutions, but this works for me on a 1440p screen)
    • Download these files, copy them and overwrite (make a backup first) font_table.txt in
      [Halo 2 folder] / maps / fonts

Frame Rate

1. Halo 2 is not designed to go over 60fps. Do not set it above 60 and then complain about issues.

Have you tried this on a 2160p display? Whenever I use this font at 2160p some of the text is cut off, and some of it does not show up at all. Is there any fix for playing at this resolution?

The font fix works if I'm not in borderless windowed mode, but the second I turn on borderless windowed, the kill feed disappears.
