About that $100,000 fine,

Knowing how big Msoft is they will probably realease a hidden file in one of the Updates posted On Automatic Updates :ninja: That contains a tracking device which scans for computer info and whether this dl has been accessed.

Dun Dun Daaaaaaaaaaa :rofl:

Besides who will the judge take sides with us the home computer user or Msoft the biggest os company in the world/universe/milkyway :huh:

Watch out fellas hehe.

Chris

P.s Jus an idea :whistle:

Halo.2.DVD5.Kit.READNFO.XBOX-iND

This little kit automatically will Make The Halo 2 DVD9 into

a DVD5. all you do is extract all the files to where you have

diff-hl2.iso and then click halo2dvd5.bat -

it will unpack the ISO, Remove 1 movie [attractions]and Repack

it to make it a DVD5..it also removes dashupdate.xbe.

then simply burn Halo2_DVD5.iso!

the next question, why? Because im sure some credit whoring

group would come along, and release a Rip of it calling it a DVD5..

so why let some credit ###### release another 4.3gb, when ive done

whats needed in 30kb? =)

on another note.

Hey GGS, is this Rip 'Xbox-Live Compatible' too? ;)

make sure you have a bit of free drive space, it needs a temp dir

[which it removes afterwards] to do its work.

Halo 2 leaked onto the internet

Microsoft has said it is trying to track down the people behind a pirated copy of the forthcoming Halo 2 game.

A version of the eagerly awaited Xbox game has appeared on net piracy sites and newsgroups, almost a month before making it into the shops.

In a statement, Microsoft said it was investigating the leak, adding that it was "aggressively pursuing the source of this illegal act".

Halo 2 is due to go on sale worldwide in the second week of November.

DVD file

At the start of the week, the game's makers Bungie Studios said work on the title was complete and the game was ready to go into production.

We consider downloading this code or making it available for others to download as theft

Microsoft statement 

The sequel is expected to be one of the best-selling games of the year.

The original title, Halo: Combat Evolved won universal acclaim when it was released in 2001, going on to sell more than four million copies.

Halo 2 is set to hit in the shops at the start of November. But its release has been overshadowed by the release of a pirated version of the game on the net.

The copy in circulation is a European version of the game on DVD, which is almost three gigabytes in size.

'Illegal act'

Microsoft, which owns Bungie, has reacted to the act of piracy by promising firm action.

"We consider downloading this code or making it available for others to download as theft," said the company in a statement.

"We are currently investigating the source of this leak with the appropriate authorities.

"Microsoft takes the integrity of its intellectual property extremely seriously, and we are aggressively pursuing the source of this illegal act."

It added that the piracy would not affect the release of Halo 2.

Halo is not the first high profile games to have fallen victim to piracy online.

In August, a copy of Doom 3 was leaked online ahead of its release and downloaded by thousands of people.

And last year, key parts of the code behind still unreleased PC game, Half-Life 2, made their way onto the net.

Bungie admits that they rushed Halo. Halo 2 will not be the same case.

Oh this place amazes me. Just about a month ago I get my post deleted and a warning from mods for posting a link to an nfo file (on nforce and console news) for some star wars game. I guess since it was not front page news or something the mods want to see screen shots of, it was illegal. Will the hypocrisy ever end?

Yeah, not really sure why we are discussing this. Yes it's front page news, but it is warez and illegal software. Boarderline on the rules I guess.

Oh well, as long as nobody posts links or offers to share it I think it's fine.
