Ok so I have every copy of PC Gamer (Britains Best Selling PC Gaming magazine) And scrolling through the various pages of Operation Flashpoint 2, CoD5 and Crysis Warhead. I come across this:

Quote: PC GAMER ARTICLE: What’s the newest Upcoming mod to look forward to? We have the answer. Not many people in good old U.K. know about Halo: Custom Edition. It is a version of the classic Halo 1 for PC but it allows you to create your own Customized maps, weapons, vehicles, we’ve even seen custom made TREES! When we heard this from our informant (See Article "The Spy: Time to give the oldies another chance" pg. 64) we immediately dived in. We quickly came across a website dedicated to Halo Custom Edition and other things to do with the Halo Series. (www.halomaps.org).We immediately were met with the "Featured maps" in which we ooo'ed and ahh'ed at what was before our eyes. Upon browsing the forums we came across this topic all to do with a mapping/modding team known as the Custom Mapping Team (Or CMT as everyone calls it). The link to the topic can be found at the end of the article. We spent a lot of time browsing the 148 pages of the topic and we have decided that this could possibly be the PC Gamer "Upcoming Mod of the Year!" **Some old SPV1 pictures are displayed** Custom Mapping Team has released a handful of multiplayer maps. And a custom version of the good old Halo 1 campaign with updated graphics and weaponry. **Picture of a crewman carrying silenced SMG with caption "members of the engineering crew now pack a punch"**. We learned from the "CMT is back!" Topic that this version is named "SPV1" and that CMT is making a second version of the campaign "SPV2" **Shows a picture of the black pistol with caption "Spec Ops Anyone?"**. The pictures we see in this topic amaze us. The graphics that are being produced are easily beating Halo 2's standards, and touching upon Halo 3. As well as images of new game play, fancy effects and a whole load of weaponry. **A picture of Brutes with the caption "SPV2 will see the appearance of brutes!"** This my fellow readers. Wins the PC Gamer Biscuit of excellence! (Article by [PCG]Ross) (Link to the topic: http://forum.halomaps.org/index.cfm?page=topic&topicID=14135 - punch it in and see the pictures! Or just turn the page, either or.)


The next page is covered in images of SPv1 and the multiplayer maps with various captions.

Wow. Just.. Wow. Well done to CMT. Big cheer!

I was surprised when i saw that it had two pages all to itself. Normally the Upcoming Mod of the Year article is 1 page or maybe half a page about something for half-life 2 someones pulled out their ass

That or tell us what issue/page it's on. I don't want to get excited about something without a way to confirm if it's real or not.

If they managed to go through 148 pages, and the CMT thread has 153 and gains about 1 page a day, I think it would be new.

They release an issue nearly every seven days...

I just browsed the PCG website. They dont have much. The only mention of Halo when i serached it was "Halo 3 to PC - Microsoft gets our hopes up" and somehing about a [PCG]Halo 2 server.

Which means it was last issue. Because theyre stupid and dont leave things from an issue or two back on their site unless they think it should stay there for a while... Ill check there podcasts. See if there is a mention.

Nah. Whats bullcrap is that our digital camera has a broken screen. My phones camera hasn't heard of Brightness and my Webcam doesnt work atall...

And with the light on my phone camera is still crap. And the light reflects off the paper

No. Just my scanner and cameras. Mainly because my little sister dropped the digital camera in a Rock Pool and the scanner hasn't really worked well since we got it. making images x1000 the size. Now it just doesnt turn on..

I took it. It was like a black nothingness. So i tried with the light and got this:



I did warn you. My phone camera sucks and killed it.

The part at the top I posted isn't the full article. As you can hopefully see.

I guess It could be true or it could be a photoshop. I doubt he would go through all the trouble of this if it was fake though. I mean what does he gain? Soo, Congrats masterz and the rest of cmt. Job well done
Also the pages get folded josh

If you notice from your lines the page it is on isnt at an angle. But the ones behind it are. Also the huge amount of brightness is mainly because half the pathetic light that my camera uses isn't used as a flash and you have to turn it on manually. And the torch is sticking out a little right next to the camera lens. making it super bright.
