    But i just got Halo 2, and i went to go online downloaded the new maps etc.
    Then i wanted to play Capture the flag, but it was quick match which puts you on everything, then this other option, and it has game modes but no like CTF or any of those its diffrent options like 2v2 and sniper war and stuff. and i dont want them matchs, i can create my own match and pick from capture flag and bomb the base etc.

    i just want to join capture the flag server, surely they must be a way i can pick game mode (CTF) and the map i want to play on?

    Anyone help?! :confused:

    You can pick the games you want only in custom games where you invite friends to play.

    Matchmaking has various playlists which consist of all sorts of slayer and objective gametypes as well as numerous maps.

    It's strange at first but honestly is one of the easiest and most fun on line systems to date.

    Take a look here and it'll tell you which gametypes and maps are in which matchmaking playlist.

    No, unless you have enough friends on line to make a party and create a custom game.

    The various playlist are generally either objective, (CTF, Bomb, territories, king of the hill) or slayer. There are team or free for all playlists and the map selected is random.

    I know it sounds sucky but give it a try. If it's ctf you're mainly looking for then try Big Team Skirmish if you like bigger teams or Team Skirmish for 4v4.

    Well I also got the game very recently and tried to download the three necessary map packs but for some reason the second pack won't download as it comes up with an error saying "download failed". The first and third ones worked though but because I can't complete the set, this means that I can't play online :(

    Borrowed the Official Map Pack CD from my mate though, so I'm hopeful I can just copy them to my hard drive that way. Failing that, I guess it could've just been a temporary server blip? Will try again tonight in any case and post the results.

    There is an issue that causes this, take a look at the MS supoport site for information.
