i used halo mapping tools and got close but it said there was a tree error
Halo Mapping tools is for Halo PC not Halo CE. Use the HEK it is a suite of programs that is much more feature intensive than anything in Halo PC modding.
Halo Custom Edition maps have an embedded checksum that is comprised of the data and the map name. This is done so that the client and server can tell if the maps are the same. When you compile a map in Tool it generates the checksum. The Halo PC modding tools do not take this into account, because Halo PC does not have a map making kit, so when you do a meta swap it changes the actual checksum without changing the stored calculated one. The map then errors.Programs
