Halo CE General Discussion » Bump mapping similar to xbox? Xbox sounds? Jun 14, 2018 09:54 PM (Total replies: 3)

Audiophiles say ogg sounds better so I'd use that when compiling sounds until you must use xbox for sounds that aren't working correctly.

I'll add to the speculation and say that I thought CMT had moved on to recreating the oddball weapon

Use Refinery to rip the scripts.

SOooooooooooooooo not sure where to post this but could someone explain has it always been like this or am I stupid.

So I go to do sleep commands
(camera_set 1.1 0)
(sleep 30)
(camera_set 2.1 0)

ala like that. 30 game ticks = 1 second
Well I set my game to vsync 120fps and 30 game ticks = 1/4 second. Therefor my sleeps that should be 1 second aren't that and are jumping ques to early. It's only causing errors in one of my maps (so idk if its even happening in the others or not) and I can just enable (cinematic_start) to lock to 30 but doesn't 30 game ticks = 1 second regardless of fps? What did I break?!?


welp after recompiling to run some tests I can't get my error with the camera points to happen again. Though it does seem like fps affects the print command and how long it stays up. A regular print command on locked 30fps stays up for about 4 seconds. On Vsync 120 it's gone within a second. Odd....

Looks like there haven't been updates on this map since last year. Still aiming for a 2018 release?

Yes. Just because no update doesn't mean no progress. There's no reason to excite people if it's not going to be out soon.

I'd expect most updates to come in the final month before release. Maybe some teases as stuff boils down but as of now I can say the map is playable from the beginning to the end. It's just a matter of cleaning up, optimizing, beta testings, etc (which will still take some time. It's a mess in spots).

I wonder how long MatthewDratt will keep haloce3.com running as an alternative for this kind of stuff? I can't help but wonder if he realizes what he volunteered for as there is a cost for keeping it running for the foreseeable future. It costs more than just money, it costs time!

Money isn't any problem with the site. The hosting is shared with my main personal websites and the domain renews for free via my current hosting site. The only foreseeable issue is Mediafire. Sites like Mediafire don't tend to hang around terribly long and it's been quite some time that it has been around so who knows since that what I use for the downloads.

But yeah time is the issue. However 3-4 updates/year is still more than HM right now so who knows.

Halo CE General Discussion » How can I link 6 bsp into one in game? Mar 11, 2018 03:27 AM (Total replies: 3)

Useful scripts

(object_teleport object flag)
(switch_bsp bspnumber)

To start off:
Add this to the top of your script
(script static unit player
(unit (list_get (players) 0))

Now you can teleport the player with a script.
(object_teleport player flagname)

Create cutscene flags in sapien, name them, and replace flagname with the flag name. Drop that in your script where you want and you can teleport the player. So essentially you can make a trigger volume, sleep until the player enter the trigger volume, then teleport them.

(sleep_until (volume_test_objects TRIGGERVOLUME (players))15)
(object_teleport player FLAGNAME)

If you have different bsps, loop at the order they were added to your scenario. The first bsp is bsp 0, the next is 1 and so on. So if you need to switch bsp you can add that script in there to

The hope is to do all new audio recordings. The project is underway and we have been playing with SPV3 Lumoria for several days now. There's also a chance a relic from the past may make a re-appearance in SPV3 Lumoria...

wow send me a build
