Hello All,
I am new to Halo and have been playing for around a month. I have greatly enjoyed the modded campaigns for Halo Custom Edtion such as the CMT spv2 and the H3 Style Campaign. Here is why i'm am here...some of the guns in these custom maps I don't like what I would like to know is if I could replace them from tags off this website. I have never done anything this technical before and from what I have read you can't mod campaigns. Is this true? Like I said before I would like to experiment with different custom guns (tags?) on these premade maps. Forgive me for being a noob. Any tutorials ot information would help greatly thanks!


First of all you can mod campaign's providing you have all the tags used to compile the campaign map into a playable level.

You can rip the information from the map. Assign the ripped tags into your tagset and have a play around.

Unfortunately whilst there are a couple of tutorials which meander around this subject matter none really hits the bulls-eye.


However if you wish I can make a quick tutorial on how to mod weapons in a campaign map e.t.c


(Which campaign level do you want to mod?)

I wanted to try A30 and as I learn maybe expand to the others...Basically I wanted to add a custom gun to the map or replace an existing one such as the assualt rifle... I have no clue how to do this kind of modding I downloaded the HEK tools but have no clue how to use it. So my main goal is to see if I can get the BR85 working on A30 this is were i found the tags...

If i could just figuire out the basics...
A tutorial would greatly help as I am very confused.


I'll whip something up for you if time permits.

Seems like the h4 tags you referenced are missing a few files. Which means that you cant add the h4 br from that pack.

Also what type of a30 campaign do you want to mod. (there are many)

Darn! The BR85 was one of the big reasons why I wanted to mod a campaign...That was the only H4 br tag I could find on the internet... :( As regards to which A30...It doesent really matter CMT SPV2 or the H3 Style anyone that I could switch tags out with my own would be fine...

No problem...What other tag did you find?


Just explore the site and who knows what you will find.

I found a map that has the H4 br tags... :D

http://hce.halomaps.org/index.cfm?fid=6722

Is there a way I could rip the BR85 tags out of it?


Yeah you can use the HEK+ http://hce.halomaps.org/index.cfm?fid=1542


It's a primary tool for ripping assets out of unprotected maps.
