How would you sync a .map file into Halo Combat Evolved for the xbox? If so how would I do this?

if it was, you would probably have to replace a default map

There's an option for it in Kornmanv102, but it just freezes when you click it.

Putting custom maps onto the xbox requires modding. And unless the rules have changed modding of the xbox or xbox 360 is not allowed here as somewhere along the lines it's illegal and therefore this topic will likely be locked the next time Dennis comes around to lock topics.

If you want to mod the xbox try another place like www.halomods.com or the like, they usually allow modding xbox's.

Ai does not sync for Halo Combat Evolved. This is not gearbox's fault is Bungies, for they never wanted online co-op and neglected to make code for Ai sync.

Modding the Xbox is not illegal, but using it to play pirated games, is.

Actually, I'd imagine modding Xbox or any of the games would be considered "reverse engineering," which is against the Microsoft content usage rules. So technically if it were a big enough deal, I'd imagine they could press charges.

Otherwise, why would they ban people for having modified gametypes in their file share on Halo 3? I think I heard somewhere they actually ban the console itself.

You have no idea what you're talking about. Reverse engineering is not modding. If you do a software or hardware mod it is no longer covered under warranty.

Because they don't want people to ruin the stats system by creating maps that have things like hacks and stuff. You can distribute modified maps of Halo 3 over other means, however.

You don't own the software. You just license the use of the software.

Dunno if he does anything else though.

uh, wrong.
Dennis goes and pays his frickin' money every month for what? So we can play a game? He gives you the gift of hosting all this crap and you just accuse him of not owning this stuff he pays for every month? I think at least a part of this, even if it's just this website and his machinima, is his possession. But, he, out of the kindness of his own heart, does this for us.
So quit your whining or get banned.
How's it feel to be worthless? You tell me.

Haha...Jenkins, if you're seriously considering doing something like that, you'll need major experience in modding and such. That's all I can tell you. Good luck learning how to do it; few people, if any, have managed to. halomaps.com seems like a good place to start.

Dennis owns UXB if I am not mistaken. This webste is hosted on UXB servers which Dennis also owns. He owns his website.

Actually you are mostly incorrect. In my case, since I run a web hosting company, I do in fact own the space and the hardware in addition to owning the rights to the website domain name. I also wrote the application that presents the website so I in fact own the rights to that as well. However, I license the software that runs the operating system, web server software and the application server and cannot reverse engineer those items.

Ownership verses licensing of software is not a simple issue and the majority of people do not understand the difference. In most cases you do not own the software you purchase, you license its use and part of that license agreement is to not hack or reverse engineer the product. As a matter of fact if you actually read the license agreement for most software they even have the right to revoke your license to its use and require you to stop using it. People just don’t read the license agreements and install and run it anyway.

I've never understood those liscence agreements. Aren't all legal contracts with a minor void?

It is unlikely that it will be confiscated and you won’t be arrested for violating the license agreement. In the USA Licensing/Copyright laws are not criminal laws they are civil statues. You would not be arrested by the state (police) for copyright violation however you can and would be sued by the copyright holder. They could as with an XBox ban you from on-line use or posibly disable aspects of the software remotely and they would definately sue and seek monetary damages from you or your legal guardian.

No they are not. The responsibility falls to the legal guardian to answer for the minor. Meaning you as a minor most likely will not be sued but your parents or legal guardian would be.

These are not yes/no or black and white issues. There are many shades of grey that I am sure you have yet to fully understand. The main thing to remember is if you hack or reverse engineer anyone’s software you (or your guardian) run the risk of being sued.

I it could possibly be considered said "reverse engineering" because, while the modder isn't technically reverse engineering, they're using tools people have developed from reverse engineering.

Next time do some research before mouthing off and telling someone they don't know what they're talking about.
