Post unaltered videos* of you playing through the Halo 1 campaign levels in Halo PC, Halo CE, or HaloMD on each difficulty level with only the stock maps and taking no damage to shields or health from any source**. If you take damage, you have to reload a checkpoint before you took damage or restart that map level if the checkpoint is spoiled***. The challenge is each level of difficulty, one round per campaign level. Each round lasts 24 hours. If you miss a round, you can submit it late, until the end of the difficulty level cycle. Winners will be listed at the end of each round.

For example, round 1 is a10.map on Easy Mode, post your video sometime during May 3rd. Round 2 is a30.map on Easy Mode, post your video sometime during May 4th. And so on. Once the Easy Mode cycle is finished, we move on to Normal difficulty and the submissions are closed for easy mode gameplay videos.

To play the campaign in HaloMD:

1) Copy the Halo PC maps a10, a30, a50, b30, b40, c10, c20, c40, d20, and d40 (from "C:\Program Files (x86)\Microsoft Games\Halo\MAPS\") to "~/Library/Application Support/HaloMD/GameData/Maps/".

2) Make the following change with a hex editor:

*Upload to a web site where, or in a format in which, the video can stream from within the web browser, not so the video must be downloaded for playback. For example, BitChute, YouTube, Vimeo, and maybe Dropbox, Mega or Mediafire.
**The only exception is that you are allowed to take shield damage while in a vehicle.
***The rules allow for checkpoints in respect of people's time and the game's design.

I might not allow for checkpoints after all. That makes it so much more time-consuming and difficult. I don't see anyone else participating yet, so it's no matter.
