Full Game Installer + Mod

If you're having download/file integrity issues with the above method

Try using the torrent link

If you have Halo 2 installed, all you need to do is run the Cartographer mod installer, verify install location, then run Halo 2 and create your account in-game.

If you don't have Halo 2 installed,

  1. Download the Full Game Installer + Mod If you have download/file integrity issues, try using the torrent link.
  2. Extract the contents of the zip file and run h2pc_setup_1.7.exe
  3. Choose your desired install location, please note that game files must not be moved after install
  4. It may appear that the installer is frozen, please be patient and wait for the install to finish
  5. Once setup is complete, run the game

All logins are now done in-game, no more external launcher. Accounts made in game are separate from this forum website, halo2.online. Game account recovery can be found here.



  1. Create account in game, you will need to verify your account via email. Confirmation emails are usually sent instantly, please check your spam folder.
  2. Once email is verified, go back in game and login. If the button says "Dont Remember Me," that means your info will be remembered
  3. If you see Status: Online in the top right corner, you have logged in successfully
  4. After logging in, create a game profile which stores your appearance and other settings.
  5. For other settings such as Field of View, Raw mouse input, and more, click the "Cartographer" tab on the home screen or hit the "Home" key on your keyboard in game.
  6. Select the “Network” option on the main menu to join a game.

If you have any issues/questions, please read the FAQ page first, and the Features post

See you on the battlefield, Spartan.

The interesting thing is I think they used the leaked Xbox Live server files to get this thing working online again. Reason I think that is because it actually had the halo 2 online back end in it. Great seeing that the community made an effort to keep the online community going on Halo 2.

Another question though. Is this still mainly optimized for Vista?

as mentioned above, it runs rather great on win10. Additionally has some mods to allow custom FOV among other things.

Do you mean from 7s or do you mean in general? I've never had any issues finding a game full of people on it.

I only see a few people on in a couple servers. No actual matchmaking works.

Well of course there's no matchmaking. there should be populated servers most of the time, though.

Did you follow the tut when it comes to registering with project cartographer?
I'm sure I did something wrong following it. Gonna give it a look over once more here soon.

I can't remember the main menu, but one of the options is for the og servers and that doesn't work.

If you can't get this going then the files for Halo Online are in prem

Just reran the cartographer and it seemed to have fixed everything. I see quite a few full servers now.

What is the consensus on Halo 2 PC modding vs OG Xbox modding. Let's say someone made a simple, no frills, easy to setup LAN tunneling app for Halo 2, like XLink Kai and XBC. Would the preferred option be OG Xbox nights or Halo 2 PC nights?
