-screenshot
Allows gamers to take in-game screen shots by pressing the PRINT SCREEN key on their keyboards. Halo will save your screenies sequentially as TGA (targa) files in a Halo\screenshots folder. There is a pause in game play while the shots are saved.

I put that function so I can take Screenies but .tga is an unknown file for my computer,do I need to download something so I can open em?

Argh....

This is one of the reasons I dropped use of the -screenshot directive and I do NOT recommend its use to anyone.

Targa is a proprietary format, so "converters" are few and far between, but they DO exist.

I forgot what I tried to use long ago to convert them, but my advice to you is to take your screenies some other way, like with xfire....

OR! Or or or or

GIMP saves the day again!

GIMP (alternative to Photoshop) supports Targa (the TGA files) for reading, and editing. So you can use that to convert, and if you want to give another player a mustache beforehand, you can!

P.S. Sorry about the month old necropostage, but it was first page, and thus fair game!
Congratulations!

Thanks a lot, only problem I have is when two hogs drive up next to each other and It looks like to you, you flip, or keep bumping into each other very fast so you turn the other way, and that makes you flip, but to everyone else, They didn't get the "Driver lag" I call it. I dont think there is a way to fix it unless you slow down just a bit and let them go in front of you. But this guide helped me a lot, Thanks!  :)

Filla, that's called "proximity lag".  I think that has more to do with the server and the number of players on, especially with higher pings.  Don't think settings will help that.




(thanks TrkKing)

Correct.

There's nothing that you can do about "proximity lag."

It happens inside the server.
