Hello,

I recently submitted a map to Halo CE, but the trouble is, I wasn't able to rename it so I have my doubts that it will be accepted. Therefore, I have come here to ask questions concerning this.

The problem is I do not use HEK, and instead I use HMT and Halo Map Version Converter http://hce.halomaps.org/index.cfm?fid=1082.

How do I rename my map? I want to rename a modded variant of Assault on the Control Room I made, the b40 map.

I'm pretty sure Dennis accepts campaign mods named as they are.

I've been told if you open the map in notepad and replaced the map name with the one you want it will be changed in the game but don't quote me on that.

you can rename it using a hex editor, but the map name would have to be 3 letters also...

well, you could recoursively extract the map with hek+ and recompile with a .scenario name that fits you

Can you tell me how to extract the map and recompile? I am not very familiar with this program. I just downloaded it.

Really? Well, I still want to rename the map so I don't have to violate anything.

Yeah, it didn't work.

All the campaign mods on the site are named with the default names, just so it fits into the campaign maps list. If you do want to rename it, it'll require use of HEK.

Yes, if you open it in notepad/wordpad/xvi32 and look for the name (should be in the first line)
and rename it (must be the same number of characters)
then save as a new file with the same name you just gave it, then you should be fine.
ex:
I open a10
find a10 in map code
replace with q69
save as...
q69.map

but it won't load like a default campaign map now. You have to use "map_name q69"

Interesting.
