Halo 1.05 Patch Released
6:49 AM | Tuncer Deniz | Comment on this story

MacSoft today announced that they have released a patch for their hit game, Halo. Users wishing to apply the patch (v1.05) must already have Halo v1.04 installed. This patch is for the English retail version of Halo only. It does not provide support for Halo CE. MacSoft is currently evaluating the CE code.

The 1.05 patch addresses the following:

Additional functionality which provides reflective surfaces for objects and vehicles on some NVIDIA hardware has been added to the NV Shaders

A Model Reflections option has been added to the Halo Graphics Settings window. This option is only available in the ATI Pixel Shader and NVIDIA NV shader modes. We strongly recommend disabling this option on lower-end video hardware.

A PC game bug which prevented eMacs and other analog monitors with high refresh rates from syncing to 640x480 resolution has been fixed.

Some issues with hardware fogging when using the Vertex Shaders rasterizer have been addressed.
