Well, my wife and I just loaded it up on our 16:9 screen. The lobby and everything is 16:9, but when we start a co-op game it goes to a 4:3 image, split-screen, so a large chunk of the screen isn't used. If this is how they implemented same-screen multiplayer, I'm going to be furious. I can't find any options to change it either.

With 4 players it uses the full screen. With 2 players it uses a 4:3 window only. With 3 players it uses the full screen for the bottom half where 2 players play, but the top half of the screen has the image centered, but uses only the width of a 4:3 image.

I'm not pleased.

Can anyone here verify if this is in fact true, or if there is a settings issue that needs to be corrected?  I'd really hate to see my MP experience with my wife to be marred or rendered completely unplayable by such a poor design flaw. 

Well, I tried to play some co-op with my son last night and that appears to be what happens. It pretty much ruined the experience for us. Maybe me will get used to it but after playing on a widescreen tv for so long it is kind of difficult to do.  I couldn't find a setting to change this. If anyone does, I'd love to hear about it.

How is that a disappointment?  All they are trying to is preserve the aspect ratio.  It's actually better than halo2 or gears in hd on the 360 where it would split the screen down the middle vertically.  In that case you had no peripheral vision, and you couldn't see anything despite the fact you have a 16:9 screen.  I'll gladly let some of the screen not be used to have the view that I'd have on single player.

Splinter Cell: The Chronicles of Riddick.  At least that's the impression I got without sound.

Lol good point about having fun.  No if I wasn't having fun then I wouldn't still be playing.  The rank thing kinda gives a goal to shoot for.  Feel free to add me to your friends list my gamertag is dwm189.  I think I was in the knightshade clan briefly until it died.

Sadly the 650 is only a fraction of the games I played on halo.  Last I checked i was in the ~1600-1800 games played range.  That a lot of halo.  The sad part is I could only get lvl 18 as my high rank.  All that time down in the drain....

All you need to do is put the ip of your proxy in that host field, then simply select http as your method.  (or some variation of http).  Port should be the same port you used before I think 55.  The usename/pass is not required so you don't need to worry about that.  Good luck fighting the man!

It's an airlock, so you need to go all the way in (both of you if coop) and then wait for it to pressurize.
