Halo 2 (PC) can never connect :'(

I swear, problems are attracted to me.


Anyways..

I installed Halo 2 (PC) and whenever it attempts to download an update from within the game, it fails. I downloaded everything I could outside of the game but yeah.. it keeps giving me this.

Attachment 22174

Any suggestions? Bing and Google didn't help me much.

is it trying to update the game? or the live ui thing? cuz if it's the UI, try another game. i used fallout3 to do that but any gfw game will do (should, anyway). for the game itself, try a good old fashioned manual patch.
halo 2 1.01 update

Yay! IT works! Thanks!

I still find it odd that it can connect to tell me there is an update, but suddenly doesn't like the connection when it comes time to download the update. =| Microsoft better not mess up Halo 3 (PC) (is there ever going to be one?)
