As many of us have begun to realize, there are currently several debilitating bugs in the menus and UI of MCC. In this thread, I will attempt to compile a master list of these bugs with your help, and then I will do my best to ensure that the right people see the list in order to improve the odds of these bugs being fixed.

General UI Functionality:
  • Playlists display incorrect player counts
  • Games start with uneven teams in matchmaking
  • Some players can boot players on the enemy team from matchmaking
  • Opening the post game carnage report can cause the game to crash
  • Parties are often split across teams in matchmaking
  • Joining and inviting functionality is inconsistent
  • Inability to promote other players in the party to leader
  • Opening the player details menu can cause the game to crash
  • Some levels can are skipped in campaign playlists, notably 343 Guilty Spark
  • Achievement earning can become temporarily locked until game is restarted
  • Players searching for matchmaking games can be entered into custom games instead
  • There is no option to change teams in-game, despite team-changing being a togglable option in gametype settings
  • Maximum number of local files (50) is very limiting and seemingly arbitrary
  • Not all online friends appear in roster
  • Roster inaccurately reports party sizes of friends' games
  • Avatar unlocks do not always work
  • It is occasionally impossible to join or invite other players without going through the Xbox One friends list or restarting the game
  • It is impossible to join a custom game or other session once it is in-progress
Servers:
  • Finding matchmaking games takes excessively long
  • Players get dropped from the party often
  • Parties are often disbanded after a game
In-game:
  • Checkkpoints in Race do not properly act as respawn points in H2A
  • Functionality tied to start menu in Halo 3 and Halo 4 is now missing due to unified UI
  • Lighting on Sandbox is broken
  • Lack of gravity hammer in H2A prevents Grifball from being played
  • Performance issues in CE, H2A, and H4 campaigns
  • H2A campaign can freeze console when under strain
  • Performance meter in H2A forge drops sometimes when placing an object with magnets
  • Objects in H2A forge shift once placed
  • Stalactites on Lockdown occasionally cause players they're dropped on to commit suicide rather than giving the kill to the player who dropped them
  • Playing Requiem in Halo 4 splitscreen will crash the game
  • In Halo CE campaign, while playing 343 Guilty Spark, the loading screen, start menu, and achievements/unlocks report that you are playing the Library. When playing the Library, it reports that you are playing Two Betrayals, etc.
Installation:
  • Some installs do not work, forcing players to reinstall
  • Progress on content patch install is misrepresented (continues to download for hours after reporting 100% complete)
Give me more, guys.

• Campaign: Some levels will be skipped in campaign playlists (most notably "343 Guilty Spark")

• Halo 3 forge is missing gametypes to enter forge with (can only forge on Basic Editing)

• Earning any achievements can be temporarily locked occasionally until the game is rebooted (earned yet locked achievements will show a full progress bar in the Achievments app)

• Players searching for matchmaking games can be randomly placed in ongoining custom game lobbies

• Framerate drops too often in Halo: CE, Halo 2 and Halo 4 campaigns

•Halo 2: Anniversary campaign can freeze console when under intense load (such as reverting a checkpoint when playing splitscreen co-op)

I am about to start my download soon, but after that much shit that is wrong with the game, probs not worth 15g of my internet for one month. I'm sorry but what a fucking joke. 343 fix your shit. It's sounds more Brocken then halo 4 on launch. So disappointed.

I agree to an extent. This game should have been delayed. I would have waited longer would I have known the current state of the game then.

I would like to see the performance meter while in player mode in addition to monitor mode. This is when I would like to view it most, not when activating magnets on pieces. I would also like to see this performance meter operate more sensitively as it currently is most visible when using magnets and not running around.

Objects are shifting on my map and I am not in party. I am forging solo and they shift. This is worse than H4. I never had a problem when forging solo in H4.

Quick question... Is 343 going to really do something about these things or are they going to blow it off like they did with Halo 4. If they aren't going to do anything why are we complaining then. Not to troll just to start conversation.

Can I get a concussion rifle in halo 2? I know this isn't a bug but the lack of weapons that are in h2 compared to halo 3 and halo 4 should be changed in customs I think.
This is not a bug. The concussion rifle is also nearly identical to the brute shot in function.
1. Legendary on co-op Halo 2 automatically makes it so you re-spawn from last checkpoint when one of you die even if you don't have that scull on.
This is not a bug. This is by design and has been like this since Halo 2 came out ten years ago.

Efforts are already being made to fix several of these issues. Compiling a list and ensuring the right people see it will only help improve the support of the game in the future.

Updated the list.

1.O your right about that Crap my bad.

2. I remember when playing halo 2 on the xbox this wasn't the case... we may have been playing heroic so that probable the case.

3.Understandable.

When I save a gametype (as opposed to save as) it creates a new file with a generic description rather than overwrite the original file.

Maximum of 50 local maps or gametypes (for Halo 2A at least) needs to be increased to at least 100.

You can allow/disallow team changing in the gametype settings but you can't change teams in the game.

No forge_ball & forge_goal gametype labels in Multi-Team Richochet so I can't make Beer Pong :(

In-game file browser???

- When pressing X not every friend shows up on the list (right side) . For example you see two friends, but there are actually ten online.
That makes finding your friends pretty complicated as the interface of the XO is inconvenient.

To add to this, team changing, you can view it before your in the game and you can click to change teams but a blank screen comes up, with no option of what team to change too.

The forge ball thing is a huge bummer, I mean it they need to fix that.

Halo Channel: I am unable to play anything I choose. Terminals, Nightfall, etc. It either continuously tries to play the latest thing on featured or it loops the opening where it says 'Coming up next' or the equivalent before just saying The Halo Channel is not available.

Annoying. Re-installed once. When there are unlockables based in the Halo Channel the least it can do is work.

As of last night, it looks like the matchmaking connection issues have been largely resolved.

Personally, the 50 item limit is the killer bug (?) here. We *need* at least a couple hundred in order to make forge/custom games optimal, or at very least the ability to have 50 items per storage device. I also haven't experienced the shifting bug, but that is also a really big problem.

The ability to change party leader at any point, ability to change teams in-game, and ability to 'bring party with you' when joining another party are all seemingly missing.

There's some other obvious missing features and weird bugs, but when MCC is cooperating, I've been having an absolutely fantastic experience... hoping that most of these get fixed quickly!
