    This is bound to come up, so maybe we should have a separate thread for it. I played Halo 2 (standard edition) for a couple of hours last night and was blown away. But the :censored: manual that came with it isn't worth the paper it's printed on. So, I've got a few questions that some of you might have figured out already. Also, feel free to add any of your own.

    (single player questions should be spoilerised, if necessary)

    Q1. They've changed the default 2-player split screen from top-bottom to side-to-side. This is awful on a non-widescreen TV. (I feel like a horse with blinders on) I've delved through the confusing setup menus and can't find anything to change this. Is this set, or is there an option to revert to top-bottom? If it's unchangeable, it looks like we won't be playing co-op until my flatmate gets his new widescreen TV.

    Q2. The multiplayer awards. (those little icons you get after a battle) Anyone know of a good list that tells what they are, and what you do to get them? They seem to have missed out any actual information in the user manual, and although they look cool, I've no idea what they are supposed to represent. (apart from a couple that are easy to figure out)

    Q1. Go into your dashboard settings, and change the screen setting to 4:3. The screen is now split top and bottom. (I know cos I've just tried it!)

    Q2. Bungie.net is your friend. Good FAQs and stats section about your last 10 or so games.

    Not true - custom games are unranked too. Only games entered through matchmaking (ie. Quickmatch or Optimatch) are ranked.

    Sorry just thought training ground was unranked. Just played a custom game with a few people on here. The lag ruined it unfortunately :(

    Yes I noticed that. Can we have a game with just forum members ? Should be enough people around based on last night to get a decent game.

    Mine is still working, have been using regularly since lasy Thursday. WHy not give your chipped xbox a try with Live, you have nothing to loose if you are willing to buy another one.
