Halo 5 crashing - pragmatic solutions
Is Halo 5 dead?
No, it isn't dead.
Like many people, I grew up with Halo. In fact, the development of Halo Combat is my earliest gaming memory. When I was a kid, I was borderline obsessed with the open environments and solid gameplay.
In fact, I was optimistic when the original developers at Halo, a studio called Bungie, left the franchise and passed it on to a studio that Microsoft had put together to continue the franchise called 343 Industries. 6 years later, and the future of Halos looks pretty bleak, they swapped the game-heavy campaigns of the past for soap opera melodrama levels that couldn't be further from the series' roots if they tried. It all started with Halo 4.
Or as I like to call it, 'Geriatric John and the Bowling Ball Bastard.' Halo 4 tells you right outside the gate that you are no longer cool. Masterchief is old ... even though he was cryogenically frozen the whole time he really shouldn't have aged between games and no one thought he was too old before that, but I suppose that's neither here nor there.
For a franchise based on Masterchief being just a ship that allows the player to experience an action-packed, epic storyline, Halo 4 does everything it can to make it uncomfortable enough that the Masterchief is possible. Campaign is about your allies telling you you suck. Speaking of which ... who wrote Sarah Palmer? Who wrote Sarah Palmer? Why would anyone create this character? This is a character designed around that Just getting under players' skin.
It serves no other purpose than to act as if it controls you throughout the game. There is no evolution to this plot, it is just rude. This may be shocking, but it is possible to have a strong female character without her only character trait being that she is aggressive.
You know ... how maybe these two? For a series that campaigned to let the player inhabit the main character, 343 really got it wrong.
Here, let them te, I'm not really going to go into the details of the plot or the misleading marketing campaign for Halo 5. Not because I have no criticism of it, but because I don't even know where to start. But I'll say this: How could anyone think that it is a good idea to get all of the context and interesting events in the story behind BOOKS ?! If you want to find out who this guy really is and why he's flying around in a bowling ball? “Better crack these books, buddy.
As someone who hadn't read the books before playing Halo 4, I had absolutely no idea what was going on. This from a guy who has played through Halo 1 at least 10 times. If your story is too complicated to fit into a game, it may not be a story that should be conveyed through this medium and it is time to ans The glamor of the Bungie games was that it was in the games to keep the story going and keep the player from getting lost, but if you wanted to delve deeper into the Halo universe, the books were there for you.
Now you have to do a few days of homework before you even start a Halo game or you will be totally lost. It all stinks of game developers trying to imitate films. There is also the problem of 343 Industries' art style changes.
Many are sure to quickly remind you that the art style of the original Halo franchise was ICONIC, where all the guns looked pretty believable in some ways. They look like something to see in the future. And then we could finally see real human settlements in Halo Reach and take a look at life in the Halo universe.
It seemed believable, as if everything had a purpose, and not just overdoing it to look like 'science fiction'. And I'm sure some of this was just to save resources on the old consoles. But check out Halo 4 and tell me this looks believable to you. it looks like a fantasy.
The Spartans don't look like Special Forces soldiers, they look like Power Rangers. The marines look like kids playing nerf. When did that get hotter than that? Alliance Cruiser (ooh) Phantom (aah) Halo ringing (applause) Phaeton (what the hell is that gunny) I don't think I've ever seen anything as disappointing in entertainment as 343's realization of the aliens since the Star Wars prequels .
Bungie identified the aliens as that ancient alien race that loved life so much that they sacrificed themselves so life could go on without the tide taking over the galaxy. This is a race that cared so much about life that it covered the weapons they will use to destroy themselves in life. This was a society for eons before what we could imagine.
Compared to the technology humans possessed, the Forerunners are gods. Reminders of it have been placed throughout the Bungie games, as in Halo CE when Spark says so. The most technically advanced piece of armor mankind has ever made is only a class 2 out of 18 compared to previous technology.
What a fascinating piece of mystery to add to a game. Or it was until they decide to reveal that the aliens are actually quite similar to humans, just as flawed and biased, and even use exactly the same weapons as humans. Isn't that interesting? The same society that built rings that could destroy all sentient life in the galaxy uses a glowing version of the combat rifle and can be incapacitated by a single grenade.
Apparently he didn't die from it though, he actually dies in a comic book. Yes, Halo 4's main antagonist dies in a comic book, not in the game. Is that A plus genius level storytelling right there the part where Halo 3 ended with a Quicktime event to crush the win of the Truth, and then a dialog heavy cutscene? Oh no ... it ended like this.
You see, it doesn't really count as adding new content to your game if you take the old one and just change the skin and give them a little different rental spread values. The silencer? This is actually just an SMG. The Scattershot is literally just a shotgun.
It is boring. Bungie was so dedicated to keeping the gun sandbox varied from being fired quickly while the rocket launcher fired in a straight line and only had two shots. Weapons like the plasma rifle and plasma pistol shot slow projectiles while human weapons fired fast moving projectiles that were less effective against shields differently.
Well, except for the plasma repeater but we won't talk about that. Speaking of different, let's talk a little bit about multiplayer The original Halo games all used the same bulletproof formula. And that's what defined Halo.
Everybody's started with the same weapons, and players would usually run around the map looking for more powerful weapons on landmarks. I know this may sound nostalgic, but I really am not. Not including Sprint and Iron Visors in the Halo franchise was one of the most critical decisions Bungie ever made.
The thing that limits many shooters is the fact that when you are walking around the map you are not actively involved in the fight. When you sprint across the map in Call of Duty, you are not ready to shoot someone. You have to stop, aim and shoot.
Halo didn't work that way before 343, and they weren't ready for the ramifications of adding sprinting and sights to a Halo game. All the maps and the fight itself got clunky and awkward. It's defended by people who say it increases the speed of gameplay, but it's actually not true.
It has been previously tested and it turned out that Halo 5's actual sprinting speed is slower than Halo 2's standard running speed. All Sprint does is to slow the entire game down and disarm you for most of the time if you do the Cross the map. Sprint is bad um in my eyes, damn it, it was bad when Bungie did it in Reach.
But it doesn't end there. They added floor hammers and spartan charges so you can just slam someone and kill them on the spot, which looks really cool on a trailer, but it's not great in a Halo game. It's tricky and requires cards to be built around these skills, not necessarily combat in the traditional sense.
One of the core tenants of the Halo franchise is that the multiplayer is fair. Everyone gets off to a fair start, and then 343 thought, “Well… maybe we'll add classes like Call of Duty. Well, maybe we'll add killstreaks like Call of Duty.
And you get to that point where there's only innovation for innovation's sake. If something is good, you don't have to change it. If you add things like spartan skills that completely dismantle the balance and flow of the franchise ... it's like putting a mustache on the Mona Lisa.
Just because you own the rights to the franchise doesn't mean you have it have to change. There's a reason the gameplay hasn't changed much between Halo CE and Halo 3. t fix it ... and they tried to fix it.
It really shows that 343 indicated that they purposely hired people who hate Halo, they meant business. Halo 5 is a Halo game that isn't like Halo, not in an exciting way, it's just more like any other generic FPS. And it was kind of embarrassing how little he actually listened to the community.
They have a lot of events where they reach out to the community and they seem really nice people and making games is hard. But that doesn't change the face. Not that they made any serious changes to this franchise that a majority of gamers don't like, and yet they refuse to move.
There is no better example of this type of willful ignorance than how you deal with Halo5's requirements system. The requirements system is essentially your standard lootbox system, but the rewards you receive will have a direct and unbalanced impact on the game's PvE mode, such as the ability to summon a tank. And now, as a normal person, you'd think, 'Wow, that sounds ridiculous, I can't believe you can pay for your way to victory.' I thought so to myself.
And so 343 addressed it in the trailer. Worried about the gameplay? Shut up, boy. The adults are talking and now it's all about the money.
Unbelievable, is not it? I can't help but believe that 343 just forgot that Halo was supposed to be fun. What good is a campaign if it's full of characters that most people find unwelcome? What good is multiplayer if most of them disagree with the changes you made? And don't just believe me, some fans revived that classic multiplayer style gained tremendous popularity ... until Microsoft shut it down.
I think what I want to say is that as a person who grew up with Halo and considers themselves their all time favorite series of games, 343's Halo games feel an insult to the legacy of the originals. They just don't feel like Halo.
Why does Halo 5 freeze so much?
The freezing occurs when players leave or join a game in progress and has been a known glitch for a long time. They said they fixed it in the Overtime 4k update, but obviously not since you me and a plethora of other players are still experiencing it. Honestly I don't expect H5 to be fixed, ever.
Halo 5 Guardians has one of the worst campaigns and stories in article game history. And I'm not really sure who is supposed to be responsible for all of this because it seems like every aspect of the Halo 5 story has been screwed up. Anything this story tries to do fails! And this is Halo, this is a franchise known for its high quality storytelling! And what was the end result with such a huge budget? I do not like it.
Now there are a couple of theories I have as to why the Halo Fives campaign turned out so terrible. First, everyone who worked on the Halo 5s campaign had no idea what they were doing, what they were trying to do, or how to tell a good story. 343 hired a totally incompetent group of writers and collaborators.
Second, Microsoft stepped in at some point and changed the design process of the Halo 5 story, which resulted in what we have now. It could even be a combination of both, but I'll leave that to you. I don't think anyone is happy with this story, I don't think 343 is happy, I don't think Microsoft is happy, I'm not happy with it, nobody is happy with this story! Now this becomes a direct review.
I'll be honest, I won't be foolish, I won't dance around, okay. I will point out things that I think are good when I come across you. The sad thing about the Halo 5 story is that it will never go away, it cannot be remade or repeated.
This is the story the game was released with, and there is no going back from it. In fact, Halo 5's story is so bad that it's the perfect example of how not to tell a story. Now I think we all know the Halo 5 story is pretty bad, but how bad is it ?! And where do I even start dissecting this monstrosity? Well, I'll start with the thing that pissed off all of us.
Number one chase for the lies! The first and most obvious problem with the Halo 5 story is godforsaken marketing! I'll admit it to 343, after seeing these trailers and articles I sincerely thought there was a great story going to be told in Halo 5. All of the ads painted a truly epic picture: a newer Spartan Fours brand? Team Osiris?! Against a group of renegade Spartan twos ?? And blue team emerging from their stories to reconnect with the Master Chief ?! Chief against Locke! Two Spartans executing each other in a matter of seconds? Who would win?!? Fuck! I have to get this game! This story looks great! These visions and advertisements made such an impression on anyone who saw them that they showed radical changes in the halo story and an interesting conflict between the two characters who you would play as. We all waited patiently for the fifth part of the Master Chief saga.
After Cortanadied Chief finally started showing subtle emotions, he appeared to be in a vulnerable state. She once told me that about being a machine. This would be the perfect time to explore topics from PTSD, soldiers like machines, war, older versus newer generations, the possibilities were endless! And just like me, you were probably very excited after seeing some of these ads.
You probably thought Halo 5 was going to have a wacky story, maybe even the best story in the Halo franchise! But what you didn't realize was that you were fucking lied to! These scenes reflect an environment we never see, conflict we never experience, character development that never happens, and tough dialogue that doesn't exist in Halo 5. I don't hunt so much for Spartans, but for THE Spartans. It's almost like there's a whole different story, but they changed it halfway and kept the marketing ads for the story they wanted.
When you re-market a game, you need ads that reflect what is going to happen and what players can expect from it. When your advertising is this slimy and deceptive and the fan base you have is just pissed off, you really need to rethink your marketing strategy! Because the last thing you want your fans to think is, am I being fooled, am I being tricked? Was that all a lie? So what 343 had to do was stick with the marketing story or change the marketing, but neither did they make the marketing lie! Pretty much everything the trailers and ads showed isn't in Halo 5, and it doesn't matter! It doesn't happen! Or does it do that? I dont know! Is that real? It's incredible how little all of this marketing, by and large, matters. In retrospect, we'll see it as those scam ads that tried to sell us a story that never existed and we won't see it that way, oh fuck yeah so hyped for that! If we look back at the marketing of other Halo games, we can be damned hyped.
There are things about Halo that even the hierarchs don't understand. But if we look back on Halo 5's marketing, we'll remember the feeling of being tricked and lied to, and that's the worst part of marketing Halo 5. All right, so I'm done with marketing, now you might think we're going to move on to the actual campaign right? NOT CORRECT!! There's another fatal flaw in the Halo 5 setup.
As if the fraudulent marketing wasn't bad enough, it's worse! Number two, the authors expect you to know all of the extended lore. This is the thing that is keeping so many people from enjoying Halo 5's story. I'm sorry, don't enjoy.
Understand. Just take a look at this diagram! This is all of the material you need to know to easily understand the Halo 5s campaign. Let's see this, okay, you have Halo Escalation, a comic book series.
New Blood, the book in which Buck becomes a Spartan. Fall of Reach, Origins of Blue Team, and SpartanII program. Master Chief Collection, the cutscene in which Locke was first revealed as a Spartan speaking to the umpire.
Trailer, Halo Last Light, Exploring Blue Team, a novel. Are you chasing the truth podcast that can tell you the truth? RuhbluhbluhHalo Nightfall is a television series that gives Agent Locke the backdrop. Hunters in theDark, Introduction to Olympia Vale.
How holy shit! Just stop! Just stop all of this! It is no longer possible for players to simply put in a Halo game to play the campaign and enjoy it alone, that is not possible. You have to do your damn homework, okay! You have to read the comics! You have to read the novels! You have to see the animated TV series! You have to watch the trailers! You have to listen to the podcast! You have to see Halo Nightfall! And if you don't, you won't understand jack-shit because you're not a real Halo fan and you don't fucking do your homework !! Gaaaaahd! This is the worst setup you could have for your story and campaign. Not only is your marketing incredibly deceptive and full of lies, but the entire premise, plot, and characters of your story can only be understood from things outside of that story! I don't beat up the expanded universe.
I don't beat up any of these things because, frankly, I haven't read or seen any of them. So I am not criticizing these stories, I am criticizing the fact that they are essential to understanding what is in the actual game. Now you should have done this by putting all these essential pieces in the story and if you can't and then creating a story that has all of these essential pieces in it.
And once you get the game out, people love the story and everyone wants more, then post your comics, your novels, your TV shows, okay. That's how you damn well market this. That's how you get people to do it.
If we look at this diagram we can all agree that Halo 5scampaign and story only appeals to people who have read or seen this material and not only that, but you need to purchase these books! That's more shit to buy and your time to spend on it. It would be okay if Halo 5 Guardians told a full, incredible story. But it doesn't! And that's because it doesn't, as the main plot points aren't in the game.
It's like bad Asgrimoire cards for Destiny. Now we can see the entire campaign and story fail before we even see the first cutscene. Number Three: Big Dumb Intro You know I could spend five hours talking about how stupid this intro is.
So the game starts off strongly with a cutscene that has absolutely nothing to do with the rest of the game. Yes! The fifth film sequence that we see has no relevance. The conflict between Oni trying to kill Halsey and Cortanais is mentioned in this cutscene.
They will order you to kill us both. But it is never explored in the rest of the campaign! Why the hell didn't they cut out that scene? Anyway, the game looks pretty good at the beginning, but then we immediately get boring remarks from Captain A and Commanderboring. They say there have been Forerunner attacks on five different colonies.
But instead of opening up with footage showing that these attacks are building the drama and revealing the villains and their abilities, the game only has two boring, unprecedented characters talking about it. And just because you're telling us that people are dying and there is massive destruction doesn't mean we will deal with it right away! Hey 343, have you heard of Show Don'ttell? So the exposure tells us that Dr. Halsey has information about these attacks and is being held captive by Jul M'dama in Kamchatka.
Whatever Kamchatais and whoever Jul M'adimada is. So they give Fireteam Osiris a mission briefing that seems strangely out of place because we don't even know who Fireteam Osiris is! What are you doing on the pelican when you are informed of your mission. You should be in a meeting room or on the Infinity Bridge.
Track equipment online? To confirm. Well, that dialogue was completely pointless. Uh who are you Say, before we make that jump, does anyone want to say a few words? No wait wait who are you So we're reintroduced to Bock who is now Spartan and the first thing that comes out of his mouth is something completely ridiculous that doesn't make any sense.
I think if God can hear how scared I am, so can everyone else. Wait what? What does that mean anyway? I couldn't tell you were afraid, not the tone of your voice or what you were saying. And if God can hear how scared you are? Are you bringing God into this matter? Everyone else knows you're scared too, right? Gee, you probably shouldn't be telling everyone what a scared little cunt you are right before this dangerous mission.
Within two minutes of starting the game, we received dialogues that didn't make sense. Good shit, Brian! Well. Fuck! Then there's a failed attempt to connect Locke and Buck aaaaaa and they're gone! Well, music is pretty great, but we'll quickly see why this opening sequence ruins the pace and is completely pointless.
Okay so jump down in uh, wait what the hell? What's happening? Is there a dogfight? Between whom? Who is fighting what? What are they arguing about? As you can see, these are the questions an opening scene is supposed to answer. Instead, Halo 5 plunges straight into mindless action. Wait a minute, I thought you should go behind enemy lines? Your mission is to blend in behind enemy lines, rescue Halsey and bring her back to infinity.
Did you even listen to the briefing? Did the pilot just screw it up and drop you off in the wrong place? At this point, Osiris is running down a hill in a place we know nothing about and fighting enemies in a conflict we have no interest in. You see, that cutscene was part of the marketing too, and by itself it's pretty goddamn impressive! It shows off incredible graphics and the new Spartan skills that look awesome! The problem is, it doesn't help history! We know next to nothing about these characters, the setting or the storyline before they jump back into this Michael Bay action scene! There is no tension in this scene because we don't know what is going on and nothing is at stake for us. What's worse is that this opening scene just makes Osiris and the Covenant look like a bunch of retarded people.
Wait, wait, why are you jumping on this ship? Why are you risking your life disregarding order just to kill a few sword elites? Your mission is to save Halsey, you idiot! And you know what? Those sword elites should have fucking killed her! Look at how poorly this fight scene is choreographed, what are these elites doing off-screen, for example? You just stand there. Turn around and kill them! Jackals, use your gun and shoot them! This whole scene makes the bunch look like a joke. If an entire army is unable to defeat a single Spartan even if they recklessly jump into your DropShip, what does that say about the Bund? If nothing is at stake and the life of the Spartans is not in danger, then there is no investment in the scene and the tension is gone.
This is numbing, you shouldn't think too much about this scene. It's action! It is your medicine to help you forget about all the action points that you haven't addressed. An opening scene for a story, film or game is the so-called hook and introduction.
It's what gets your attention from the start, and while this scene could have worked, it doesn't because the basics are never explained! The other Halo games use their opening films to help establish characters. Frame. Motivations.
I will continue my campaign against the people! No! Plot. Master Chief, defend this station. Yes, sir! I need a gun Right this way.
Usually all action scenes are left to the gameplay, but nothing really gets established with Halo 5. The most basic elements of storytelling are not given proper attention. After just looking at the intro and knowing how badly the whole story was structured, after just three minutes in the opening sequence we can see how the main problems manifest themselves and how broken the story is.
Okay, what do you think of this article? Post your comments below! And subscribe to part two. The Act Man logs out here. Peace! You have completed your story, Spartan Lock, my review is just beginning!
Is Halo 5 GOOD OR BAD?
Halo 5 also failed to significantly improve upon Halo 4's main issue, that the story was confusing and required outside knowledge. The Halo 5 campaign wasn't written by the same people who wrote Halo 4, and it shows badly. I personally love Halo 4's story, and Halo 5's is just so underwhelming.

Why does my Halo game crash at launch?
Another reason for the game to crash at startup could be the anti-virus/Windows Defender. Either disable the anti-virus or exclude the game’s install folder from it. This should get the game working again. Third-party monitoring tools like MSI Afterburn is another reason why Halo MCC can crash at launch.
Is there a problem with Halo 2 update?
That's a Halo 2 problem exaggerated by the tick update in MCC. @HorrorShow13666 @CapedCrusader20 @Digital_Duster @PressStartKofi Except I do. I played these games. I played Halo 5 and Halo 3. Halo 3 didn't shove cosmetic mtx down my throat, or have server issues rendering me unable to play the game.
Why is Halo 5 not playable on PC?
@Mustafa03187784 @FlipFPS @sacrediconpod Because MCC is receiving constant updates while Halo 5 is sitting on the sidelines with hit registration issues, server disconnects and not being ported over to PC. Halo 5 is a good game for many, they just won't touch it because of its bad state.
What to do if Halo Master Chief collection crashes?
If you don’t want to mess with GPU clocks, then you can cap the game’s FPS to reduce GPU load. Open Nvidia Control Panel > Manage 3D Settings > Program Settings > select the game. Turn on “Max FPS Limit” and then set a value for it. This is a bit of trial and error to find at which max FPS the game will be stable enough to not crash.
