Halo 3 Autoupdate 1.1
About mid-week, Bungie Studios released the first Title Update for Halo 3, which mainly fixes a bunch of Multiplayer issues. You can find the full details here.
Since the Update, some players have reported issues where the game will freeze in the Lobbies while loading maps. If this happens to you, it's likely caused by corruped cache the likes of which we've seen before in The Elder Scrolls IV: Oblivion (which coincidently playing The Elder Scrolls IV: Oblivion has fixed the map loading issue for some players as it's a cache intensive game) and BioShock.
Just like The Elder Scrolls IV: Oblivion and BioShock, the process for clearing Halo 3's cache is different. To do so, restart the game and on boot up, hold down "A" _and_ "Up" on the D-Pad. Additional cache clearing details are provided in Bungie's Weekly Update here.
In said Weekly Update, Bungie also reveals an awesome new internal tool: The Mancannon Pack1nko Horror. I would give my left nipple to play this. What?
