I miss the RPG too, though the Wave Motion Cannon/Portable Halo does make up for it somewhat, being able to one-shot Jugs. For me, 1.2 was also less fun to replay in some levels but more fun in others as it was more seeing what changes from 1.1 & 1.03 I liked and which I didn't. Some of the musical changes were bad such as both Freedom in Map 13 and something else in We Met Once in the Garden replacing Rushing. Fatman in Run Coward was a good music swap however as the song's chaotic tone (especially the original MIDI) fits that map perfectly.
Other good changes were the conveyor belt physics, Lia's rain/snow etc. scripts, partial vacuum the few times it's not used to screw over the player, a lot of the terrain changes (except getting rid of the Jell-O hell glitch in Third Rock From Lh'owon) and the HD textures.
The rain in the later builds on the Pfhor colony world in Chapter 2 is purple now as well, referencing a 1984 film.
On a side note, before you start your Halo 2 writeups, I do recommend checking out the SPV3 ones I did if you aren't afraid of spoilers (starting with the primer that covers the prequel books leading up to Halo 1 in chronological order, for better context than I gave when I commmented on your Halo 1 PC ones). It's a lot less ficcy than my share of Eternal's Tour too though it doesn't get away completely unscathed. That's mostly toward the end however and it's nothing than some silly text or image sketches comparing an old TV show's (third) pilot movie I like to Halo 1.
I've got a link to every part on the Pfhorums:
Another important thing to bear in mind: Don't play Halo 2 on the harder difficulties for the first time. Seriously, it's way harder than Halo 1. I did recently beat it on Legendary via Project Cartographer, and I'm going to do it on Halo 2 Anniversary as well on PC, but in both cases I was using a patch to make Legendary in Halo 2 not suck. Even then it was no cakewalk, just beatable.
There's a separate one for Halo 2A on MCC too: https://www.nexusmods.com/halothemasterchiefcollection/mods/362
Another thing is that the Warthog run restoration I've mentioned in the past I learned after I posted about it here before was that it actually replaces the High Charity level completely as opposed to just the end map chunk of that level, so covering it would require doing the normal level first, installing the mod after backing up the original level file, and then switching it back afterward.
The worst part other than it replacing the entire level is that it's not compatible with the Rebalanced Legendary mod.
