Public Beta Launch!

Yoda and I are very excited to finally release our project for everyone to enjoy but more important we are anxious to hear everyone's feedback.

These beta's will evolve with time so make sure to always come back to this thread to make certain your playing on the latest version.

Most Current Beta Link: .97
https://drive.google.com/file/d/0Bz2FU7y74GWDSVZkM1hqY0lOY0E/view?usp=sharing

Please keep in mind this is a beta and we never had any real testing with large numbers of people within the map so were not really sure what to expect. All we can say is we are very excited to be at this point in our project and can't wait to see how things evolve from here.

The Halo StarWars Mapping team wants to thank everyone for their participation in these betas and look forward to hearing everyone's feedback.

I honestly think it's a shame that HAC2 and OS can't work together...

Oh well. I'm reinstalling OS and disabling HAC just to try this out. 'hope it's a good improvement from the CE3 version ;)

EDIT: Right. I forgot, I can't get into your dedis because I don't have a legit key...

The server gives me the map file starwars-beta.895.yelo which is corrupt according to HCE.

Disable HAC and use the OS download function, it downloads fine that way(for me atleast).

Are you replying to me or ChieftainSnipe? because I only use OS and don't have HAC.

Come on people, why is the server empty? It's one of the best maps in halo custom edition history and nobody plays it?

I got the map working but it lags a lot, I tried it in lan, but I'm determining if it is just my laptop acting like crap or other reasons, but from my low framerate game I was impressed and had a rush of battlefront nostalgia hit me.

Please post this on our discussion boards and we'll work with you to figure out what exactly happened.

There are no rules against selling games without their cd keys, or continuing to use said keys after someone has purchased. The only way to ensure you'll get your own key is to either get a sealed copy for 30+ dollars or get it from Microsoft's online store. Pick your poison :P

At least you're not ranting about ethics.

Or from Amazon, if you prefer Amazon over other places.

With all due respect to you and your team and your great work & great map.

How on gods green earth do you expect to stop someone from uploading your map from there cache to media fire and posing a link?

I think things would be going a lot smoother if you put your nice preview video and download link in the OP!

SHOW EM HOW IT'S DONE!
We all know its a beta and needs testing so just keep up with the change log. and keep your version numbers right.

if the map is out and your still going make changes we want to stay informed about what's going on.

don't keep us in the dark.

I want to check the map out to. but I cant turn dev mode off. due to an app I'm making.

I used OS to download the map. Once it was done downloading and the extraction process began my game crashed. Giving me an error message to reinstall the game, and that star wars beta was the issue. I reopen Halo CE with no errors, odd. However when I attempt to join the server I get various error messages each time. Such as "This game has closed down" or "You need to acquire a valid CD key" . Can anyone help?

I'll admit, I have been caught by surprise with the 3rd party Map Downloads and OS being not as stable as I had visioned it would be. It's really thrown a monkey wrench into my map distribution plan. I love the fuctionality and I will continue to distribute maps using the ingame maps downloads but I don't see much of a choice but to also have direct links for the map downloads. The beta releases will be kept up to date within the fist post of this beta thread and our projects website.

it's the .895. isn't it

When you try to join the server from the browsing list, the map's given name is starwars-beta. But only OS is counting the .895. in the map's true name.

HAC2 doesn't seem to notice this and tries to download starwars-beta(minus the .895 at the end)
methinks HAC2 isn't using the right tags to look-up map names..

Just an idea: maybe you need to use "," instead of "." in map name. I know that HAC2 doesn't like dots so it might work with OS as well?

could you provide more instruction the map does not just start and it has to dots.
the file extention is wrong and the map crashes halo?

you cant have 2 dots in your map name. the extention is registering as .895 instead of .yelo

I second that ^ yet again,

The moment there are actual good servers that stay alive for MORE than a week is when I'll start using my two legit registries instead of the hash randomizer. Because there's no sense in getting your real Keys banned in servers that are monitored by once-a-year inactive 24/7 admins.
