Isn't the Crimson Pack already available for those who purchased the Collector Edition or am I confusing things?
People who purchased the Limited Edition will get the Crimson Pack (and the next two map packs) for free, but we don't get them early.

Re: Halo 4 & Halo Remastered

So my mom sent me a box of clothes along with a gift receipt... long story short I'm now the proud owner of Halo 4! I've only finished the first two levels. They're quite long. Turns out we quit in the middle of stage 2, thinking there were checkpoints like in the old games, but when we started the next day we had to start from the beginning of the level!

You need to choose Save & Quit, not just dashboard, to get the checkpoint to save. It's a bug that's been present for pretty much the entire series, AFAIK.

Yep. Checkpoints aren't permanent saves. They dissapear as soon as you exit the game.

It's a bug
A bug? How so?

I'm pretty sure I did select quit, but it didn't say save... I didn't go to dashboard and I didn't just switch off the console.

Oh, I think I know the problem now. You said "we quit", so you were playing co-op, right? If so that's why you couldn't save. You can't save from a checkpoint in co-op.

You get a screen popup saying that the game saved, but nothing saved to disk. That's a bug in my book. (Especially when you get the exact same text when starting a new level, and it actually saved to disk.)

Re: Halo 4 & Halo Remastered

Yeah I'm playing co-op. So we have to finish every stage in full then, hunh? Annoying. The old games weren't like that, I've always played co-op.

I'm assuming that you are referring to checkpoints; "Checkpoint... Done" is not saying the game is permanently saved, it's saying a checkpoint has been created. "Checkpoint" does not equal "game saved", at least not in this game.

(Especially when you get the exact same text when starting a new level, and it actually saved to disk.)
The game automatically keeps track of level completions, regardless of whether you save the game yourself or not. That there happens to be a checkpoint at the beginning of each level has nothing to do with it.

Yep, unfortunately.

Re: Halo 4 & Halo Remastered

Well I now I know I'll finish a stage when I get an Achievement.

Just played Level 3 and the first time against the Prometheans. I like them! It's nice to get a different enemy set. I like that the knights can teleport and have healing flyers. I like the dogs you can explode with a single shot to their glowing face.

Nope, co-op on Normal. Every once and awhile we die suddenly with no clue why

Re: Halo 4 & Halo Remastered

Received the game (limited edition) on Christmas Day and finished it on Legendary (co-op of course) 11 hours later.
Love it to bits! Worth the wait! I love the Prometheans, I love the story, I love the Infinity War Games and Episodes.
I had a blast when I found out there was an old Halo 3 map in BTB (Valhalla --> Ragnarok) O M F G!!!
I tried to play Spartan Ops on Legendary on my own, uh let do that again later, m'kay?

Anyways, love the game and can't wait to see what's next, especially the episodes with Dr C. Halsey...
