    I seriously want to mod Halo 2 but, I'm afraid of getting banned from ALL of xbox live.

    Will I get banned or will my account get banned?

    :?

    No...You wont get banned at all. You dont even get banned in H2 anymore for mods.

    If you have a modded profile it wont work on live, it will show your gamertag, assuming you mean a profile name mod. and they just boot you out of MM for having mods on your box.

    Yeah dude you can mod H2 and not get banned, i modded H2 a few years ago and i can still use the account on live , i just cant go into matchmaking. Once the countdown gets to zero it kicks you back to the menu. But theres tricks to get around that if im not mistaken.

    Well, I consider that a ban. Its just that its a Matchmaking ban for halo 2. And if you start a new account then your not banned on that one. Also you dont get banned for all games just halo 2.

    You will get 20 seconds in the game then booted to the menu. No h2 ban or xbl ban.

    Pretty much nothing will happen to you if you mod halo 2. The only thing that will happen to you is that you will get kicked out of matchmaking games on halo 2 in less than a minute, but you don't get banned from matchmaking, you can just go right back in and get kicked out again. No other games will be effected, your xbox live account will not be banned, and you'll be fine playing any other game, including Halo 3.

    If you want to mod halo 2, just do it. It's awesome, but you're a little late. When H2 was in its prime, modding was in its prime. The good ol' days. Halo 2 modding is really fun though.

    Wait, Really? I thought you were in the game for 20 seconds then you get kicked out and get banned from matchmaking. Also if you mod and do that and then you take the mods off can you go into matchmaking and not get kicked out?

    Nope once your banned your banned. When i was banned i didnt even have modded maps yet. all i did was complete the soft mod process and i went into matchmaking once (with no mods yet) and after the game i turned of my xbox. Next day i try to go into matchmaking again (still no mods) and it said i was banned. They check to see if your xbox is modded, not the actual .map .

    I meant having a modded H2 Profile with action replay so that I could have unlimited ammo and health.

    Thanks goes out to everyone who posted on this thread, you've taken the fear out of me, you guys are awesome!


    Also, what's up EnergiE!
