Just to say that there's a working Halo trainer sitting in the "New Uploads" section of www.xboxsaves.com.

I've just run it myself, and it works as advertised. You press both thumb buttons down, and the trainer menu pops up (looks totally screwed on HDTV, but still readable). You can be unkillable, have infinite ammo, and have a 'bump' mode where you turn into whichever character you run into!

I hope this won't interfere with XBconnect gaming. Oh well.

Er, no. It's a patched default.xbe, so you'd have to have the game on your HD (or burn a patched copy to DVD). I think it also has to be the NTSC version.

Having played it for a bit, it's quite fun. I'd be sure to back up your original XBE, since I'm sure it's pretty buggy. Bump mode is a good laugh, running around as a little grunt making silly noises.

Yup, I just ripped my legit copy to my HD.

To install, download IPSWin. Get the Default.xbe off the XBox. Run IPSWin on it, pointing it to the XBE and trainer IPS file. Put the patched XBE back on the XBox. You're ready to go.

Hmm, that doesn't sound good. By "click on", I assume you mean in EvoX/Boxplorer. And you are definitely running the US, NTSC version? Check this by putting Default.XBE in a RAR file, and check out the CRC32 column. It should read 55EA3A03, and after patching, it should read D6AD3F11.

Here's exactly how you should patch it (although I'm sure this is how you did it anyway).

1. Run IPSWin 2.0.
2. In "File to patch", select the default.xbe that you pinched from your Halo DVD. It should be exactly 2,535,424 bytes in size.
3. In "IPS Patch to use", select CZN-HALO.IPS.
4. Turn on "Backup Copy" and "Log File".
5. Click "Patch".
6. Take the now-patched default.xbe, and put it in the Halo folder on your Xbox HD.
7. Run default.xbe as usual.

If you really want I could probably host a link to RAR'ed copy of the patched default.xbe - we both have legit copies!

Burnmaster, whoever wrote this trainer should be given a pat on the back. Around here, we reserve headshots for people who pass judgement without bothering to find out the facts.

I've just tried it on xbconnect, and as promised, it's impossible to cheat with it. It does seem to work if you both have identical cheat settings, which is perfect - no advantages, and adds variety to a game that's been getting a little old lately.

Medusa is a bloody awful cheat - there's just bodies everywhere! Why couldn't they have done something so Master Chief runs faster? That would've been a popular mod.

The only downside to all this is that whilst Crazy Nation have been very responsible in preventing cheating with their trainer, they've also demonstrated that cheating is possible. It could be a matter of time before Burnmaster isn't talking out of his arse.
