Some facts
Posted By: Syama Mishra <>Date: 3/23/02 11:11 p.m.

In Response To: Re: The Perils of Importing (Adrian O'Grady)

WE can assume a few things as fact. These are

1: PAL60 and NTSC share exactly the same timeings in all aspects. The only difference is the colour encoding, and this is done on the xbox video dac anyway.

2: PAL halo uses 50hz tags and NTSC halo uses 60hz tags (To accomodate for walking speed etc)

3: PAL Halo uses 50hz tags in both PAL50 and PAL60 modes. Hardware tests have proven that halo still only runs at 50hz refresh even when PAL60 mode is set to yes. This shows that PAL halo is optimised for use ONLY in PAL50 mode....thus all PAL Halos will lan together regardless of the PAL mode selected (50 or 60hz).

4: This all could have been avoided had Bungie programmed PAL Halo for PAL60 timings and just let the Pal50 mode be 17% slower...just like all the other devs out there. Games like JSRF do this and sales are NOT hurt in any regards...if anything games optimised for PAL60 sell better as it is a feature, not a bug.

Syama - So in closing we can assume as fact that Bungie had no idea what PAL60 mode was or how to incorporate it...pretty and unforgivable event if you ask me. Whos up for a boycott?
