No text in halo

Unread postby Kathryn » Thu Apr 21, 2011 8:58 pm

I have been having trouble with halo, and so far no one has been able to figure out what's wrong. The problem is that I can't see any of the text, or type anything. I have already tried uninstalling, and reinstalling halo, didn't work. I also reinstalled the Microsoft XML parser, also didn't work. So I have no idea why it is doing this, but if any one has any idea of what I could do to fix it please tell me.

P.S. I had to get a new internet modem, and this problem started right after I got it. I don't know if that could have caused anything, but just in case I'd thought I'd put that information too.

Ummm.... I've forgotten what the fix is. I think Tech knows. Resolution or something, not sure.

There's an article about it here:
http://support.microsoft.com/kb/838993
basically the same thing here:
http://hce.halomaps.org/index.cfm?nid=268

Did you try all 4 methods? (#3 should be 1.09 patch)


p.s. Of course, it would be most helpful to know if anything else changed since it last worked. The modem is probably not related. Also, what resolution is your monitor and how do you play Halo? (full screen? what resolution setting in Halo?). Try creating a new Halo profile in the game and see if that makes any difference (it will use the default settings).

In-game chat is the same port as player data, so if she can play multiplayer then it's not a port issue.
