A drivable halo 3 scarab might be impossible but you can always try

Of course its possible, since you can drive the Halo 2 version.

Reading Itail's posts, I can see that his logic was rather flawed:

Apps weren't released back then, much less tutorials, derp.

Not if you rip it...

If you have a ripping tool, all it takes is the Model and the textures. You can also rip the animations.


If it's a biped, it's gonna have to be rigged as a retarded vehicle or a biped.

Couldn't you just hook up an external hard drive up to the Xbox, and download teh stuff?

Well, does the xbox just have USB ports? Like the Playstation? Because if it can, can't you just copy Halo 3 map wit a scarab on it?

I dunno if that'd work, but it might be interesting to try.

The actual games and map data is on the disc, which is encrypted (hence the need for a 'ripper' program)

I believe the model data is compressed but that is different. I've never heard of the maps being encrypted.

Yes, the map files are even online to download (probably illegally). There are public tools to extract models and bitmaps, but getting it in-game would be very difficult and wouldn't work nearly as well as in Halo 3 (if you've ever played Extinction, it would be like that).

It doesn't work like that.

I have a JTAG and have gotten the halo 3 .map files on my PC. The only problem is that there is no useful halo 3 model extractor. :\

http://www.modhalo.net/index.php?/topic/10388-program-all-halo-3-map-files/

and if that doesnt work, try here https://access.win-serv.net/xbox-files/web/
I used the second one before, but it never gave me the untrusted connection one before.
this rips models and textures:
http://www.modhalo.net/index.php?/topic/24220-xtraction-halo-3-model-texture-extractor/

its not much of a secret.
But PLEASE, if you put any of this stuff in a map, put some effort into the rest of the map.
IDK if the scarab can be extracted.

If you look at modhalo there are a ton of tools, IDK if they will work for you, cause they didnt for me.

If I was to make a Halo 3 type campaign, I wouldn't put in a scarab. Why?

1: Nobody has made a good h3 Scarab vehicle/biped.
2:If they do make it, they'd have to animate it, which I suspect would be a pain in the neck.
3:It would be annoying unless you could destroy it, where you'd have to make more animations
4:It would have to fit in, because it would probably just try to walk up walls and stuff.

So, I don't think anybody is easily going to make a h3 scarab for CE soon.
