    Ok so idk if everyone already knows this but if you downloaded Halo 3 beta back when it came out you can still do it today without even having crackdown. Its very simple, go to your dashboard/account management/ download history/ then look for a crackdown download and then on the far right it will say halo 3 beta. Now i relize there is probably nothing you can do with this because i am a noob. I was just thinking maybe with all the new saving games to HDD bs, and like people making backups of 360 games maybe there is some 1337 out there who will figure out how to get it to work. IDK!, but yea. I would extract it from my HDD but i forget all the paths to get to **** anymore lol.:thumbup:


    play customs of course the server is def down. You use to be able to play customs in the beta.

    you just have a 1gig waste of space

    To do anything with it you have to be able to resign the XeX and the container its in *LIVE I think?*, which we cannot do

    Yeah, it's in a LIVE container.

    It's completely useless to people without dev kits that know what they are doing.

    Why would you want to play the old Valhalla? The only differences are like the glitches, but that's pointed because with a devkit you can delete invisible walls and death bariers.

    Yes, you can get one from M$ but you need to be a game developer and meet certain requirements.

    There are plenty of people that have the ability to mod halo 3 and the beta. If you would look around the halo 3 modding section you would actually see some examples. Most people however cannot shell out the $1000+ to buy a dev kit. Not to mention that even if you where to get a hold of a dev kit, there is also a software part called the SDK which , unless you are very good friends with someone who has it, you are never going to get so that you can mod a video game. So i wouldn't advise saying that we are not "1337" enough because you are sorely mistaken. Speaking personally , i have a part of the necessary SDK to mod halo 3 but as a fore stated , do not have the funds to buy a kit. How ever if you wish to try to mod halo 3, i encourage you to visit the BST section because there is a member who is selling a reviewer kit. I believe he even lowered the price to $1100 if im not mistaken.:rolleyes:

    Not true, you can't edit invis barrires yet and death barriers you can only survive if you put your player as invinrable!

    Wrong e-mail.

    The dev kits and the SDK aren't free. I think the dev kits are around $800. Not only that, you will need to pay a $10,000 start-up fee.

    You can also download the Beta (Public - Friends & Family) from Xbox.com :
    [Click here to view the link]

    The advantage of downloading the Beta from Xbox.com is that it will automatically be signed for your Xbox 360 and you can launch it anytime. :wink:

    P.S.: Halo 3 Beta was better than the final game.
