I heard you can create a loop by using "BASEIC" code by going into the
menu running

10 Click on "Settings" 
20 Click on "Main Menu" 
30 Click on "Settings" 
40 Click on "Main Menu" 
50 GOTO 10

1) Introduction
===============


Halo is the great FPS game developed by Bungie Studios and ported on PC
by Gearbox Software (http://www.gearboxsoftware.com).
It is published by Microsoft Games (http://www.microsoft.com/games/)
and has been released at the end of 2003.

2) Bug
======


The game is not able to handle the malformed data with the conseguence
of entering in an endless loop that continues to check the same data.
The effects are that the server freezes completely, so is no longer
able to handle packets, and the CPU goes to 100%.
