H2 Master Chief with or without Sauce, please?

I'm sure it will look pretty, even with the low-res textures.

Hate to make you go through it again, but can you add c_field_generator and c_dropship_shield shaders?

I have all the maps. let me know which ones to zip and I'll send them to you. Any halo game down to the build number.

For tool commands, when using tool, just type "tool" and press enter, it will show all of the commands. Eh, you know what, I'll get the list for you.

Thanks

the only one i recognize in that list is

build-cache-file



this is all i have at the moment


BITMAPS COMMAND: tool bitmaps levels\FolderName\bitmaps

STRUCTURE COMMAND: tool structure levels\folder name (space) Map Name

BUILDING MAP FILE: tool build-cache-file (space) levels\folder name\map name

BUILDING SOUND FILES: tool sounds "(path to sound)\" ogg 1

BUILDING SOUND FILES 2: tool sounds (sounds folder) ogg 1



I hope my post isn't deviating from the thread topic

Doesn't necessarily have to be in levels all of the time, or the final folder being bitmaps.

eg. for a Biped texture...

I want to ask for textures from Halo 3 to use as reference for a texture pallet that I'm working on. Is this doable? :o

Updated OP higuy.

I can grab my copy of adjutant and upload it once I get back to my desktop. But the link in the OP to the 3.2 thread should work fine. (auto updates)


Mine refuses to auto update, not sure why.

Hey,

Is there any chance you could go into further detail about the bone orientation issues when extracting models with Adjutant? I have followed your previous post, and my results are never consistent.

Perhaps a video to better illustrate the process?

As for your plasma shaders... I followed your previous instructions, but I can never seem to get things to look vivid enough. I produced a C_field_generator that looked pretty close, though. I may be setting my shader up wrong, or using the bitmaps wrong.

I would like to contribute a tutorial made by my anonymous client:

Music Firing Sounds

Edit:

Quote: Tutorial from video

Here's how to do it.

1. Open up a weapon tag.
2. Make new function or edit a function in "Functions"
3. Turn on the checkbox in "always active"
4. Set the period to 1
5. Set "scale function by" to what ever letter is using the function and it has to be either: A in, B in, C in, or D in.
6. Set the bounds from 0 to 1 (leave the left box 0)
7. name the usage anything but for the purpose of this tutorial name it "firing music".
8. Now go to attachments
9. Set type to "sound_looping" and choose whatever sound you're going to use. Note: The sound has to be in stereo, ogg, class "game_event", and 22Khz
10. Set marker to primary trigger
11. Set primary scale by to the letter using the "firing music" function
12. Now go to "export to functions", select the letter using the "firing music" function, and set it as "illumination"

And you're done. Now compile the map and watch the weapon make music when it fires.
Note: The weapon has to be automatic firing to make the music going or else it will stop when it's not automatic fire.
Best results is when the gun has infinite ammo.

Not really. Let me know the author(s) so I can add w/e to the OP.

Still trying to figure out the best way to do OP, might end up moving everything to a seperate page to be linked in OP when it gets to be too hectic.

Anybody know if theres a limit to how big a post can be? or a host that can contain this stuff on a page? Dennis?

I'd like to contribute too. I've got 11 video tutorials so far (ranging from short 1-part tutorials to long 29-part tutorials). My thread has a list of my tutorials plus I take requests there, the youtube channel is where I upload everything.

ok

i wished i would've known that last night

took me hours to figure it out

Good thread BTW


all of the Tutorials and guidance should be organized and pinned in one thread

i've been to the thread that you mentioned, but i didn't see any AI information

perhaps i over looked it, or maybe it's in a post on another page in the same thread.

if you look in his resources you can use the latest version of adjudiant to extract all that stuff and more. go download it and i will pm you the links to the halo reach map files. you will need campaign.map, shared.map and mainmenu.map in order to extract anything then get a single multiplayer or singleplayer map from the link ill send you (as dennis wont let me post it here). put all those in a single folder then open the single or multiplayer map you downloaded in adjutant. from there on you can extract almost anything in the map file.

I can upload what I have, and just append later with other stuff/updates. I'm kinda limited in a few areas that I have no control over without the original shader--animation speed/animation direction. Looks better than gearbox's shaders, but its not 100% accurate to the originals.

256x8192 resolution bitmap for frame animation (32 frames). Might end up dropping resolution for the fact that the compiled bitmap is around 8mb's...

Go spam Korn and scythe's accounts asking to fix the old shader/replace it


Would you mind uploading the tags for that?

I can never seem to get mine to be that vibrant. I tend to get a dull green

Make sure you have backups in the chance you want to switch something back. I'm just including my entire c_dropship set. I made some changes to random things here and there (shaders/vehicle/functions).

Just copy and paste tags folder into your halo directory and merge/overwrite.

c_dropship tags


Awesome, Thanks. I am mainly interested in your shader set up. I have a 2 second method for animating the noise in photoshop. I can just never manage to get the shader to be bright enough.

Crappy Sapien pics for reference.

The masks and my frame bitmaps are blended ingame, double multiply is a good way to brighten/bring out color.


Yeah, I have been using double mulitply. I think the key difference is your invert and levels adjustment to the frames. That and your image size.

One thing I notice you are missing is the Color Mask's alphas. I seem to get a much cleaner result in game if I use the alpha to clip each frame in photoshop.

The alpha for the mask's are for re-coloring the mask itself (think multipurpose cc alpha). I haven't gotten into the jackals or the portable shield so I haven't needed to use them really. They multiply color over the mask and that result is added to the animation.


Ah, That is what I had gathered when working with the Jackal. As the Xbox shader is green in the center and fades into Yellow or Blue.

I'll have to keep experimenting, I suppose.

Thanks again for sharing.
