there are some tags I need that are in original maps.
so question is how do I view the values of these tags? I know twinreaper was remaking halo 2 tags, but which tool was he using ? and on which maps ( xbox or vista)

The tools are separated by version (PC or Xbox for example).

-Use Gravemind for viewing H2V .map files (SP + MP), should open most maps

-Use Entity and/or ADI for H2X maps

-For CE there are many tools depending on what you need (bypassing protection, for example or ripping bitmaps) but I think you are asking about Halo 2

Yeah I use lots of different tools for my stuff. Here is my official list for tools no H2 xbox or H2V modder should be without!

1. Entity v1.6 UE
2. Entity v2.1.7
3. dxtBMP--------a dds image opener and option to save as targa w/alpha.
4. DotHalo v1.0b3.0
5. 3dsmax 7 and 8
6. Halo map version Converter
7. H2Core & H2Guerilla
9. Sparkedit
10. Orbit v1.1---a tool for viewing bsp's with in-game graphics applied. Good for skinning.

And as always make sure you have the latest updated plugins. For any questions on where to obtain any of my apps, just ask for a link and I'll up them for you.
