Stretched loading screens and rare FMVs.
Minor UI display and alignment issues. Use the UI adjustment keys if necessary.

Play the game in the Anti-Cheat Disabled mode for this to work. Launch the game first, then the tool.
The tool is a trainer based on CE components that may trigger some anti-virus software. Making it into a patcher would be inconvenient, as it would likely require replacing files before each launch in the anti-cheat-enabled mode.
Tested the Xbox / Microsoft store version at 2560x1080 (all games), 3840x1080 (Halo CE, 3, ODST, 4) and 5760x1080 (all games).
