Hello people of Halo Maps

Everytime I exit Halo CE, HAC2 settings such as FOV, custom chat, optic packs, etc, get reverted back to default (ie fov is something like 80 degrees, no custom chat or optic pack).

So I was just inquiring if anyone knows a solution to this issue? Thanks

You could try uninstalling HAC2, and then deleting it and forgetting it existed.

If you have Halo installed in the default folder, it's likely a Windows UAC admin perms issue. Try running the game as Administrator or reinstall the game in a folder other than Program Files. You should also check if the config file is read-only in its properties.

I tried all of those things and it did not work. Also, by config file, do you mean Config.txt under the Halo Custom Edition folder?

It appears that that file doesn't actually exist in my folder, that might be why its not saving my options.

Edit: I managed to fix the problem by creating a file named preferences, then in the properties changing its file type to .ini, and then finally typing in

fov=number
custom_chat=number
no_scope_blur=number

Thanks for letting me know about the problem not giraffe and FtDSpartn

I'd recommend using Chimera's chimera_block_zoom_blur instead of hac 2's scope_blur
