Well, finally rebooted into Win98 to check it out (yes I'm lazy, so sue me ) and what do you know, it does use the simple cloaking effect. I guess I was just thinking of the Xbox version when I saw that effect.

Maybe it is an incompatability with FX cards then. They might fix it in a future driver (has anyone tried the Det50s with Halo yet?), but it could simply be an effect the FX is incapable of (though it certainly doesn't LOOK that demanding). Oh well, I guess now Xbox owners can brag that their system's graphics card is more powerful then your FX5900.

Det50s do not use the predator effect with Halo. Just confirmed that. Hmmm...

The GF2 was able to do that and the T2 effect, nothing new really.

I think i saw it in the Demo if thats the Gold alien. That is released when you turn off the power in the room with the big towering hologram like computer . It will scare the crap out of you. I never saw it till i got killed then when it reset I caught it sneaking up on me as I was running out of the tunnel it will track you .

It has kind of a transparent ripple look to it like in the 3dmarks water but more transparent.
