Hey tripleking,

There are a lot of tutorials that you can search for online.

When I was a young'un I used this tutorial: http://hce.halomaps.org/index.cfm?fid=1525
But there are plenty of them you can find. Try watching them all to see what the differences and similarities are: https://www.youtube.com/results?search_query=halo+custom+edition+AI+tutorial

Install them into your tags folder, the same folder the other assets are in.

Or, you can just rip/extract the halo 3, reach tags from some ai maps through HEK plus. And add the ai_variets at sapien. It's a lot easier like this. Some notable map worth mentioning and riping are- # SOI's singleplayer adventure (custom)
# ff descent (it features halo 3 ai)
# A10av2 (halo 2 marines and brutes)
# spv3 (ya know that)
# tonnes of ai maps

But, if you want to do it the other way then-

1) install/paste them into your tags folder in the correct location; if it exceptions then, take a look at debug.txt

2) now add the desired actor_variets through sapien. Accomplish the encounters, squads stuff.

3) build the map through tool or tool_pro.

so i have copy & paste the halo reach tag. and all i get is a bitmap. what i do with it?

halo reach tag : http://hce.halomaps.org/index.cfm?fid=6881

i have tried to extract the spv3 but it gives me a error. do i only have to extract the
character folder?

i did try to open the yelo maps of spv3 and when i tried to extract all after some time its stuck or it gives me error.
