Just cos it's a corporation doesn't mean it's not theft. You can label me an Xbot all you want but it doesn't change the fact that this was wrong and more to the point that MS had to C&D it.

Take the L on this one man.

From their own website.

To be completely honest, we do not know the answer to this question yet. Our conversation with 343 was very brief. Since ElDewrito itself is simply an open source mod and not a Microsoft asset, the mod itself will not be taken down. However, it appears that any Microsoft assets required to play the game (MS23 builds, Full 0.6 game zips, ect) will likely be taken down by Microsoft. All we know is that have been told to temporarily halt development until more information is available, and we must honor this request. During this time, please do not make threats or harass 343 Industries.


Can We Still Play 0.6?
Yes, absolutely! Play the hell out of it. Create more incredible forge creations. You can resume playing 0.6 as normal. It is important to note that ElDewrito itself is not being taken down - just any and all of Microsoft’s assets are. In the meantime, enjoy the great game that we have poured our hearts into.

The number of people that have played 0.6 has blown us away. At the time of writing this post, there are over 8000 players playing. Here are some cool facts about the stats recorded in just 4 days of playing 0.6.

Thinking about it, there are a load of free Paragon assets out there to use, they could dip into that for stuff if they need to and maybe release it commercially.

Copyright infringement is not theft -- and the actual mod isn't even copyright infringement.


I'm not sure I can handle this level of retardation tbh. I'm out.

Photek: Halo is the best MP, more people should play.
Photek hearing Halo is on PC for free: No, not like that.

Reading over this thread, it's really sad how some people can defend a company so vociferously. Their interests are not aligned with yours. It's not a victory for gamers when they stamp this sort of thing out.

Services like steam and spotify prove that people don't want to pirate things if they can get what they want legitimately.

If thousands of people will download a weird semi-dodgy mod of a Russian free to play game in order to play Halo on PC, maybe just strawberry floating release Halo on PC and charge money for it.

You're talking about someone who defended Microsoft's bullshit DRM and online policies during E3 2013, there's fanboyism, then there's blind fanboyism.

Bbbbut theres on 12 players on it now so what's the point :cry: :cry: :x :x :cry: :cry:

Gave it a try and just couldn't get back into Halos MP. Too floaty and gooseberry fool and people kept creating new teams like dickheads. Shame as I used to love the MP in Halo 2/3.

They had to take the source code down or lose the IP. They'll release a PC version soon I reckon.
Also They didn't take the mod down or touch it. They could have just taken it down and said f*** all but at least they are talking to the people who made the mod.

And Nick, get teh Fook.

Just took you back off ignore recently too. Pleb.

I understand about protecting your IP if you're Microsoft. You're not microsoft. You don't have to defend them.

There is clearly a gap in the market and with an open platform like the PC, you either plug the gap with a product of your own or pirates will do it for you.

I'm not defending anyone, just stating facts. #Rafa
