Halo CE General Discussion » Bullet holes on the sky ? Apr 14, 2016 04:09 PM (Total replies: 4)

His issue looks like this-



E: Fix is to make sure there is no decal in the detonation started effect, rather. That, or change the sky's shader material so that the projectile uses an effect applicable to it pretty much like flanker was gettin at, idk

I think there might be some glitch on my end...

No prob, nut.

You want it Notro? I'm glad Bungie upped ingame screenshots to 1080 from 720 once it started to become standard. http://halo.bungie.net/Stats/Reach/FileDetails.aspx?fid=19906696&player=Awesomegoober

You can't (without setting a new tag directory in OS' OS_Settings.Editor.xml file), but that's ok because you shouldn't need to. The main point of the copied folder is just to provide an environment for you to actually record them. Then you inject the data with the app that does it (Anim Recorded Editor.exe) into any .scenario that you would use with your main directory anyway.

Also glad to know it works. Happy modding. Make some animations for masterz and he'll give you a beta in a couple years

Like I get why people would expect this to be a big deal, especially since in the past some projects have died due to "real life" but between exams, some stupid drama, and even a little bit of depression going on in my life at the moment, I simply have to stop for a while, just because one minor update I was gonna post in May isn't happening anymore doesn't really mean much. It's not like everyone else isn't working just because I am not. God guys, grow the hell up, seriously, this whole cancelled thing is really getting old.

Sean, I don't mean any disrespect, but I don't think you should take much of what people say here seriously. A lot is said solely because it can be said. I'll be honest in that I wouldn't be able to understand what it would be like to have people repeatedly say that a project you want to put out might not turn out. At the same time, life and making ends meet (should) always take priority. All I'm able to suggest would be the same thing I've told family in a somewhat similar situation- Do whatever you feel is right and necessary for yourself right now, and focus on those that support you. If you really want this project to continue, you will make it continue. Until then, who cares. Everything has always been on your terms.

Sorry guys, got on just now.

I honestly am not sure about that error. That's the exact haloce.exe that I pulled from the folder I use for rec animations, and there's no reason for it to be causing an error, unless the string.dll stuff is causing it somehow. In that case, I wouldn't know specifically how to fix from that point. I guess I'll just mention how I did it starting from the begining. Sorry nut, I know it's a lot of back and forth installing and reinstalling-



Start with a completely fresh CE install -don't install the editing kit just yet- set to wherever you want your primary installation to be (mine was its own folder on the D:\ drive, but I'd imagine it's still fine in "...\program files\microsoft games\halo custom edition" or wherever else). Update it to 1.09 using that link above, or by whatever other means.


From there, COPY the entire halo custom edition folder somewhere like the desktop or something. Run the haloce.exe from the copied folder. It should start and run perfectly fine, so create a desktop link to it and name it "HCE Rec Anims" or something. Next, set up the recorded animations strings.dll stuff INSIDE THE COPIED FOLDER. Patxi's vid seems to walk through this very well. Just make sure that everything you're changing is inside the copied folder.

I have hek tools since I had it installed before I copied. There's no issue with or without, but it does mean a larger folder size.


Finally, do whatever you need to do to update the main folder to 1.10 (I think you do it manually), install hek, install OS, etc. Everything that requires installation continues to use the registered directory and will make changes to the main installation folder. You will still be able to run the separate folder's haloce.exe with the recorded animations .dll since it checks for necessary files inside the folder its located in (including maps, so make sure you also place any maps needed to make anims on or another ui.map inside the copied folder). When loading either halo, it will still share profile settings, gametypes, etc. since it gets those from the documents folder. No need for Betazzzzz, as now Masterz can easily swap between OS and stock 1.09.

I never said it was a virus, I'm just saying that in 2007 Avast marked it as a thread and it was very annoying having to disable avast in order to use Halo Cloner.

It's not a virus btw!

Sorry, didn't mean for it to sound as though it did. What I meant was that while I don't think the program would be malicious in any way, because it sets warnings off, periodically crashes the game, or more importantly:

I think I have both versions of the Full Halo cloner, v2 was for online play to clone pretty much everyone in the server.....not..really much of a point doing that when it CRASHED EVERYONE (good times)

Dennis may not want to have this app linked to here since it can possibly affect the games of more people than just the people using it, like tool_pro. I shouldn't speak for him though, as this is the first time I've heard of the app or the author (with a quick google only really mentioning it in a list here and on modacity), and honestly what do I know. It still sounds like a potentially useful tool, despite the supposed risks to the user and people within his sight.

That's right... iirc it can be manually changed by replacing the haloce.exe with the 1.09 version right? I'll send a pm.

Even on a non OS install? It may because it only runs on version 1.08 or 1.09, i dont remember which. It's probably 1.09. Use this update:

1.09 - http://hce.halomaps.org/index.cfm?fid=4987

Does it look like this?


I noticed from your last thread that you were using Opensauce. That animation recorder is not compatible with OS and gives this error. Image filename triggered profanity filter. lel.

When someone can score 50k a day from producing the stupidest game imaginable, the only thing laugh worthy here is the individuals that consume it.

So use at our own discretion? Whether the virus warnings are false positives or not, it may be considered on par with tool_pro and may be prevented from uploading or linking here. That being said, I'm all for old tools being available to the public considering the fixed kornman app that was found yesterday. People could request for it with PMs, or maybe sparky would host it. If that program was made that long ago, who knows, maybe someone with the ability needed can write something better using that program and what is known now about the engine as a base.

Currently trying to rework some old stuff like the plasma repeater from this thread after viewing all those old tags on that hard drive.


^Image links to a webm showing the vent animation working. Better than a 51mb gif right?


Taking it slow as life still takes priority, but I feel I can design it to have better control over the rate of fire (and hopefully not as much desync) by using its rps decrease, overheat threshold, and round recharging mechanics all together. The reload exit animation keeps bugging out too, and I have no idea why. Had to record that about 10 times before it played properly.

A real-time tag editor would be godly. Especially for when you repeatedly have to make a small value change in a tag just to test the differences in-game.

And I wish the HUD preview box actually worked in guerilla...
Edited by Jesse on Apr 8, 2016 at 01:02 AM


Runtime-cache-viewer, less gui, more input. The values also don't get saved, but you don't have to re-compile after every change and go ingame to look.

I'll add it to the Halo CE and HEK Starter Kit once you're ready.

The Krypton theme from Superman is very similar to the music Thus Spake Zarathustra.

Sounds good. I won't take too long, it's just that the original readme was back when korn was as L337 as masterz was.

frankly I am most disappointed

That's what the flash drive behind the dresser is for.


It will be. Just want the readme included to have adequate information on the program.


Good news, everyone.

... I'd just looked into these tutorials the other day after discovering that kornman's updated haloanimationeditor was mentioned in the tutorial, as it is literally no where else to be found on the internet. Sadly, there's no link provided to the updated version and it may be lost forever.

Apparently, I lied.




On left: Updated/Fixed version. On right: Older, exception prone version.

Rejoice, for we may now replace multiple animations without the application crashing, as well as optionally (but conveniently) retain the target animation's node checksum when injecting the source's data. This is Kornman00's "fixed" animation tag editor. It was passed around by individuals since Nov. 2004 (that's when it was created), but was never really archived anywhere. You know what the outcome is when that happens. It was so obscure that many people's only hope was to try to fix the exception-prone one publicly available here. Needless to say, people as far back as 2007, 2010, and as recent as 2014 were left disappointed.

That was until today. Long story short, it was found earlier today when comparing old tags while making space on an old drive so I could play with this new capture card I got. Didn't find much else worth keeping since it's mostly bloodgulch mod-tier stuff.



Edit- Updated link: https://www.mediafire.com/?ksse02246i2xecc. This is what was sent in to halomaps. It includes a readme with a couple tips as well as a guide should anyone need it, as well as two images showing the program being used.







Completely unrelated, but do you guys like finding similarities in music? Sat through a couple hours of my stuff being played while going through the drive when some stuff would play and make me wonder "where have I heard that riff before?". I thought it was pretty fun to look into and could be worth a few smiles.

Alexi Laiho, Sully Erna, and John Petrucci must've been in the same room together.
Exodus' A.W.O.L. and Killing Floor 2's Patriarch Theme sound like someone played with their speed and pitches in audacity.
Exodus' Scar Spangled Banner and Metal Church's The Dark kinda have that No Remorse intro goin on.
Found She Wolf's main riff in the middle of The Haunted's 99.
And probably the most surprising that I noticed, this outro, and this intro.
