Custom Mapping Team, or CMT, is comprised of some of the Halo community's oldest, best, and brightest talent, brought together under the common goal of making the most complete, fresh, and entertaining Halo 1 campaign mod in the game's long and storied history. As the culmination of several years of work and experience, SPv3 is the most comprehensive modification of Halo 1's campaign yet, extensively revising and adding to the core gameplay while almost completely overhauling the visuals and audio.

This first release contains the level "The Truth and Reconciliation," or "a50." Future releases will continue to refine and build upon the groundwork laid here, with new additions and major enhancements retroactively applied after significant milestones. Make sure to regularly check the official forum at http://www.halomods.com/cmt for more information and updates on future releases, along with developer updates and exclusive media!


There are two different maps you can download - which one you want depends on whether or not you plan on installing Open Sauce.

The .map can be played with or without Open Sauce, but is missing several secondary visual and gameplay features that rely on OS scripting and memory boosts.

The .yelo can only be played with Open Sauce, but contains the complete experience. Specifically:

-No Open Sauce/.Map version: Basic mod

-Open Sauce/.Map version: Basic mod, normal mapping, phong lighting, postprocessing effects

-Open Sauce/.Yelo version: Basic mod, normal mapping, phong lighting, postprocessing effects, VISR mode, dynamic Battle Rifle behavior, enhanced CMT Extras menu, assorted easter-eggs

If you have any questions or issues, make sure you read the included CMT Manual file first!

Special note: if you're getting low FPS on the .yelo version, the manual has a section with tips on how to get better performance. Here's a short version if you are lazy:
-Disable motion blur (CMT extras or pp_motion_blur_enabled false in console)
-Disable FXAA (CMT extras or pp_fxaa_enabled false in console)
-Disable all postprocessing (pp_unloade in console)
-Decrease texture quality (video settings menu)
-Decrease screen resolution (video settings menu)

----------------------------------------------------

To install:

Quote: 1. Extract the .map or .yelo from the .rar you downloaded.
2. Place the .map or .yelo in your Halo Custom Edition\maps folder.
3. If using the .yelo, make sure there is no .map with the same filename (in this case, “a50”) inside your Halo Custom Editon\maps folder.
4a. If you have a UI that supports campaign map-loading, just start a new game on The Truth and Reconciliation. (If you do not have one, the halomaps.org archive has several for you to choose from: http://hce.halomaps.org/index.cfm?pg=1&sid=26)
4b. If you do not have a UI that supports the campaign or otherwise cannot load the map from the main menu, launch the game with the console enabled, type in "map_name a50", and hit Enter.

To uninstall, simply remove the .map or .yelo from your Halo Custom Edition\maps folder.


The latest Open Sauce installer can be found off the OS Google Code Page. We highly recommend you install OS - the process incredibly simple and non-intrusive, and the benefits are immense. The only requirement is that you update a properly installed copy of Halo Custom Edition to 1.09 and do not use XFire while you are playing the game (seriously, even having the XFire process running can make Open Sauce crash, so make sure that you’ve completely ended the program!)

----------------------------------------------------

LINKS!!!!

Quote: Just a quick update: We're up on Halomaps now! The versions up there have a few minor updates (the MediaFire versions have also been updated); namely:

-Bushes no longer pop in/out of view at weird angles
-Destroying dropship's turret no longer makes its doors open
-Fixed a stray vertex on the Chief's arm
-Tweaked a few easter-egg things in the .yelo version
-Gave BR an extra magazine of ammuniton

We've also released the passwords to un-protect these maps for tag extraction! Go here for more information.


.Map version (Backwards compatible)
[Mediafire mirror] [Halomaps.org mirror]

.Yelo version (Requires Open Sauce)
[Mediafire mirror] [Halomaps.org mirror]

Again, if you're downloading the .yelo, make sure you DO NOT have an a50.map file inside your HCE/maps folder, make sure Open Sauce is installed on HCE version 1.09 and make sure you do not have an XFire process running!

Uh... I can run Skyrim at at least Medium settings even if I switch to my on-board graphics card.(Tested it once cause I was bored. My seperate card's WAY better. It's like twice as good as some of the newer cards, cause it was a top-of-the-range DX9 card when it came out. My on-board card's absolutely terrible though).
I have 4gb ram, and only a 2.7ghz dual-core processor.

Basically, I'm pretty sure you can run it.

Ever thought of upgrading?
You can get 4gb ram for £14 on ebuyer.
You can get a AMD or Nvidia gfx card for about £40 on the same site that could run Skyrim at at least high settings.

If I can get medium on Skyrim, 30+ fps on Kingdoms of Amalur high settings, will I be able to play this okay? I hear people getting 10 fps on this thing, but i don't know what kind of laptop you have.

Motion blur is a FPS killer. Try disabling it via CMT extras and see how much your FPS increase.

My FPS is fine.

But then again, I have an Nvidia Geforce 9800GT. Best DX9 card available. :P It's like 5 times as good as the low-range DX11 cards. I can run Skyrim at High settings, with loads of texture packs and mods.

I still can't run motion blur on strong though. I'm using 'normal' motion blur. Strong motion blur's an insane fps killer. Either that or it's just too 'motion blurry' so it just looks laggy.

Btw, I'm using an old version of OS. 3.0.0.1(Or whatever. It has a 1 in it anyway). Does it matter? It seems to me like the last 2 updates are only for developers.

@Tiel

Seriously, it only costs like £100-£200 to get a new computer that's WAY better than that.

This computer was only about £300 about 5 YEARS AGO. This comp'd probably be about half that now.

Disabled Motionblur or put it to low either way because I just dont like it,.
Worked fine with it also

I find it strangely annoying that I did in fact work on some parts of SPv2 (b30 + b40) and also attempted to help you guys get on track with this project and was not mentioned in the credit list.

Anyway, getting ready to play, seems exciting. Installed OS just for this, so we'll see how it is.

Maybe you're so incredibly awesome that they just couldn't find the words to add you to the credits due to the fact it's impossible to name someone so insanely awesome, so they just skipped you altogether?

Nah, you just ain't cool enough. :P

Gamebooster and High Performance mode got me to 15 FPS. But no, like I said an upgrade is out of the question at this point. Let me see if turning off dynamic light does anything..

e: That actually LOWERED the FPS, surprisingly.
Edited by Tiel on Feb 24, 2012 at 07:50 PM


If that lowers the FPS, try ENABLING motion blur, dynamic lights, HD textures, and all other usually laggy features, and see if you get higher FPS. :P

I didn't mean to come off egotistical, however it'd be nice to know that the time I actually spent working on something was actually recognized and appreciated by the people I actually did it for.

Yes, it matters, as the updates are only done to fix bugs (though we may sneak in an improvement or two in each update). And the exact opposite of that statement is true. The updates have had more user-specific changes than the developer's.

It's been stated in numerous places before, including the installer's readme's, but always refer to the FAQ (ie, read) before going herp-derp. At release, a good chunk of issues stemmed from people not having CE/HEK installed properly to begin with.

I can't seem to get the yelo version of the map to work at all, even though I'm playing on 1.09, have OS installed (latest), and have xfire turned off. Help?

P.S Version changer says its still on, which uses a d3d9.dll, does this matter?
