please someone help me, i have a problem STARTING tool.exe even with command prompt!


http://hce.halomaps.org/index.cfm?fid=2521

here is the tutorial on how to make and use tool (btw i am writing a full descriptive tutorial on how to make a map to the finest detail, from using paint or paint shop pro, - Finishing the map and publishing it)

i hope the link helps, my midget friend (yes hobbet is a real midget coz i know him in real life)

umm THERE IS NO vehicle file in data!, and now explain that?

The makers of the HEK did not anticipate every single folder you would need. If a folder doesn't exist in the data folder, create it.

From the top of the Tag section:

Quote:
Section: Download Files Halo CE Vehicle Tags

Tags are the game Assets such as scenery objects, weapons, vehicles and the like. Each object's information is contained in a "tag". These tags CANNOT be added to existing maps (*.map files) and are only used during the map creation process. Tags MUST be compiled into the maps during creation. Refer to the HEK tutorial for additional information.


yeah but i am doing it in CREATION OF MAP, i making a map called Point_blank and Isolation_Canyon and I need to use the tags,
Edited by ICG_SUPER on Feb 9, 2011 at 06:57 PM


You won't need to use the data. The data folder contains the source of the file, such as the raw exported data from max. The TAGS, on the other hand, are in your tags folder. Merge the provided tags folder with your own tags folder.

you have answered your own question...

"tags"
"data"...


where abouts in data do i place the file


Where Do i Place Vehicle tags like Longsword tags?
I found there are 3 longsword files and one says longsword data and longsword (3dsmax) and Longsword tags, where do i place them!


Quote: --- Original message by: Maniac1000
are you running windows 7?
if you look for the files in windows explorer, can you see them or do you have to click the compatibility files tab?


umm cliff, ground and Mtl # is in the compatability tab

Oh, then check you're
.scenario_structure_bsp, it's in the same folder as the .scenario.


it is


Quote: --- Original message by: Maniac1000
do you actually have those files?

yeah there in my tags folder, all four tags

tool can not find your shaders.

any way to fix that


Quote: --- Original message by: Xoronatus
So you're kind of newbie, yeah i was wondering about that only probably like 2 months ago. Yeah, well those are corrupt tags. In order to fix those, you need to go into Guerilla and open you're .scenario and find all of the red stuff and change those so that they are black.

The error is flat out there. it says FAILED TO LOAD TAG (then a root directory in quotes)

That means your missing that file, and you need to get it back. if you cant, then simply go into guerlla, change the root directorys to the files that pop up in red, or open your .scenario, and delete ALL the tags. (Hint, when cleaning out the scenario, DELETE THE OBJECTS ON THE MAPS FIRST, THEN THE PALLETE. IF YOU DELETE THE PALLETE FIRST IN GUERLLA, IT WILL CRASH.)

hope that helps somewhat.


Done that and now get this and i am able to enter sapien but only to find my sky looks like the ground instead of a sky

Your even lucky i released this beta, early in it's development. i put my own special protection on the map, so you CANT rip it. note how all the tags say "Created by ODST_Nick". that's my protection i put on it, and ripping it is impossible, so stop trying, your going to FAIL at it. my final, i will release an unprotected verson a month later. that's why your tags keep corrupting, because of my protection i put on it.
