no this is no re-texture mod it's just a mod to "recreate" the master chief collection, This mod replaces almost everything basically this is the anniversary version but without the visual goodies.

Credits: me (masterchief117) for doing everything, 343i for sounds and HUD bitmaps, Bungie and Isxz for helping me with the plasma and flamethrower meter.

Assault Rifle, Flag, Health pack, Overshield and Active camo shaders are restored also restored some scenery shaders and fixed some wrong materials, no more dirt coming out of overshield when you shoot at it, Active camo values are default now, you can see your enemies as you always watched them, also removed the ting.sound from globals no more guessing kills.
This mod purpose is to replace the original .maps with these ones as if you were playing it on master chief collection.
you need HAC to use the maps online.

Pics:





Complete Multiplayer map pack + Main Menu with restored shaders and HCEA Music menu:

Maybe i'll do a "remastered" version yes it's still a re-texture mod since i need to leave the bsp like it is, i did some maps for fun but i don't think it's gonna happen.

Also modified the active camo values to make you less visible.

Why would i get this mod if it makes it more harder for me to see my enemies with camo meanwhile they can see me perfectly well with the default map ? #PayToLose

true, but "final release" will have default active camo values.

CE's lack of death screams is a code (compiled binaries) defect, not a content (tags) defect. Fixing code defects in CE is a far more involved process.

I have, however, heard there is some clever tag-work hackitry that can be done to implement death screams.

Anyway, will you plan to release with a full pack of maps in one .zip after you release all the maps with final version ? because, it would be much easier for me to download than just download one by one

do you have HAC 2? if so try to delete your cache file and try again if not use mine instead. http://www.mediafire.com/file/5dtjx5xk19ha53d/Cache+HAC.zip

Pretty sure stunt man has that integrated by now.

Stunt care to elaborate?

Basically classic maps with another HUD. You could have remade the older maps in a 3d modeling software and bring something fresh to the table.

I have, however, heard there is some clever tag-work hackitry that can be done to implement death screams.


In the animation tag, you could add another sound reference for the death scream, and replace all of the h-kill and s-kill sound references. This would get rid of the subtle thud sound when you hit the ground, but I'm pretty sure that already plays when your stuff hits the floor with you.


any fix would ideally not sacrifice anything that already exists.

i also want to touch on the idea behind code vs content issues.

code issues:
- warping collision over networks
- shots not registering on networks
- the entire network infrastrucutre in general
- double melee/backpack reload/other action bugs
- 30 tick animations/fx/positions/everything else that isn't move/look
- server controlling damage, players' own clients controlling descope

content issues:
- missing shaders on the flag/AR
- the pistol's damage output (pffff, allegedly)
- anything that can be changed via tags/guerilla/tool

the gmfy servers run by stunt_man, for example, host a project that has great examples of content work-arounds for code issues which include:
- improving visual indication of shots registering
- fixing descope (which I've personally contributed to the project)

60 tick animations are also a great example of content work-arounds for code issues

That is true. I've also gotten this to work by modifying the collision tag to spawn a weapon with no collision or model data, that will detonate itself immediately with an effect which will play the death sounds.


that sounds very altis.

my descope fix was built off of his work, he uses that method for a lot of his glorious hackery

It does. I'm pretty sure my method here is an iteration of that. Altis used more tags to sync effects like biped shields, mine is a shorter version of that. He said that it played the effect on both client and server my way, but I've never noticed a difference with something like the death sound. This method could also be used to make destructible vehicles look perfect online, using effects and spawning a destroyed vehicle in place works flawlessly. Destructible objects can work perfectly online, they can also work near perfect when said object can be driven by the player. Problem there is that players get deleted when the object is destroyed while piloting them, which can cause an exception.


the method's not ideal, there's a lot that goes into implementing it (similar to 60fps animations - all animations would need to be reauthored), but it does work well.

I wonder how possible it would be to automate. I know that I couldn't be assed and there are far better coders than I out there.

i suppose my point is, it's extremely unconventional. applying it to multiple things would take way longer than it should.

sure, once you understand how to do it it's super easy, but hooking seemingly unrelated tag types into other unrelated tag-types to get something to sync online isn't something an average end-user is going to know how to do, or even think to do. the only reason people know how to do it right now is because Altis beasted like a god and other people picked up on it. I'm pretty seasoned with working with tags, and even I would need to research it if I were to want to implement it into something right now.

ideally there would be a tool of some sort that anybody could understand that builds all of the necessary tags and updates all of the references. users love it when they have a user-friendly UI "makes magic happen."



just a ui mockup, but you get the idea. something like this would build all of the "sync" tags between the projectile and the impact effect. it would require digging through tag values, creating new tags and writing to existing tags.

Only transform the sounds i might asks a lot i know takes enough time to do this.I dont know if you work that yourself,or with others,but if you did that on your own Congradulations!I always enjoyed the old "graphics" of this game

yeah when i have the time i'll do it, i tested refinery and it seems it fixed some issues here and there on the campaign other than the broken a10 scenario tag it extracts, and yes i compiled and tweaked all the sounds by myself.
