Creepy Halo 3 question

OK, so my kids play Halo all the time, and my one son was viewing his friend's fileshare and saw this:




My son is Kev the KMan, and the pic says "Kev the KMan, I'm watching you, and it has a running timer with todays date & time, and below that it says 14 days. The guy that posted the pic isn't in my son's friend list, and there is another one in there also from someone else saying the same thing.

What exactly is this, and is it something to be concerned about?

Re: Creepy Halo 3 question

How about be a father and ask your son besides posting on a message board?

Sounds like there's a way to drop variables into the file descriptions.

Re: Creepy Halo 3 question

I did ask them, they don't know who posted the pic or what it means...THAT'S why I'm posting on a message board. I'm trying to find out what the Hell this is.

Re: Creepy Halo 3 question

Did you post those images over at xbox.com forums? Seems like you would be able to get in contact with some official person over there.

I'd try the Bungie forum as well.

Re: Creepy Halo 3 question

In the first pic I see: < controller0_gamertag/>

Looks to me like a piece of coding that displays the player's gamertag in the preview screen.

Re: Creepy Halo 3 question

yea, this is a modded file, nothing to be worried about. it displays the users gamertag of the person viewing the pic.

It's probably just some guy watching your kid.

If your son is under 17, you're a bad parent.

It's probably just the bicycle shop repair guy who invited Dudley and Arnold over for some drinks and topless pics. No biggie.
