greetz i have a major problem.

maps_name a30 (or any other map name it loads the freezez before i can see the map.

my system specs are:

pentium 4 2ghz

nvidia 5200 fx 256mb grafix memory

656mb RAM

233GB hard disk memory

(normal hce maps load {even the CMT bloodgulch} and the normal halo single and multiplayer)

well firstly its map_name not maps_name and after you press enter after map_name push enter again so the pink word 'halo' goes away

are you pressing ~ to turn console back off before you try to play the map?

you have to press the ~ ( tilde<console key) to make it go away,
other wise your map will freeze.
try it out...type your maps name in console then after you press enter press
the ~(tilde console key)

edit..other wise the pink halo text will stay there

well im now on a pc where it always works even when i use enter instead of ~

but this pc is better then the other and it has win 7 while the pc where it doesnt work is XP

is it possible that its becouse my pc specs of my other one or that it has xp?

im not to sure why it's not working on your xp pc,cause your main maps are all working fine.
recheck and make sure it wasn't just a typo mistake and that the console button was
deactivate when you tried the maps on your xp pc.im on xp and i always have to press ~ to disable the console before playing a single player map.

Your specs aren't the issue. How do I know? This is why:

Manufacturer: IBM

Processor: Intel(R) Pentium(R) 4 CPU 2.00GHz

Memory: 766MB RAM

Hard Drive: 320 GB Total

Video Card: RADEON 9000 SERIES

Monitor: Samsung SyncMaster 570S/580S TFT

Sound Card: Creative Sound Blaster PCI

Speakers/Headphones:

Keyboard: Standard 101/102-Key or Microsoft Natural PS/2 Keyboard

Mouse: Microsoft USB IntelliMouse Optical

Mouse Surface:

Operating System: Windows XP Professional (5.1, Build 2600) Service Pack 3 (2600.xpsp_sp3_gdr.100427-1636)

Motherboard:

Computer Case:

Specs according to Xfire. I set my graphics to low as well, and the CMT SP maps boot fine. Console also works fine (I hit enter after entering the map_name cmd). Maybe the maps are corrupted in some way, shape or form? And have you tried a UI that allows you to start a new game (similar to Halo PC)?

For example:

http://hce.halomaps.org/index.cfm?fid=4688
http://hce.halomaps.org/index.cfm?fid=5723

well i have a custom UI i have Halo 3 UI,

i might know what the problem is, i have downloaded the maps then ive put them on a CD, then when ive put them on m other pc they dont work. that might be becouse my other pc has a 6 years old cd/dvd drive and always make wierd noises and even stops working when i try to burn something (sometimes)

could this b the problem?

Yes, that could be the issue. Try redownloading the maps and see if that works.

at first i thing you mean 3.1 GHZ processor i7,

ur specs are not the problem as well,

maybe one of your maps is corrupt.

but the hce maps (sp) ahev a wierd kind of checkpointing: when you jump over a loading point it wont load and ur game might freez due to missing mapdata.
