Halo CE General Discussion » Discord Server Needed Apr 8, 2018 03:07 PM (Total replies: 47)

so one thinks stunt man's discord is worth adding to my list? can i have an invite please?

lol the invite in the picture is just fine, it's that i guess i can't read, i though the last letter was a Y not a v.

people hate me just for the fact i do the right thing, as they do Sparky, this i have come to grips with. preaching is like love: given freely with out condition. we are all sinners & deserve to die. me especially, it feel like that some times

Quote: I leave for months or years, I come back and post some topics and get no replies (e.g. ignored).
i feel like that some times. but as R93_Sniper says "Get over yourself and your delusions of importance and adequacy" life is hard, boy do i feel it. peace, or God forgive us!

P.S. i don't take 'sides', is not me & sparky versus you or something like that, i do as i see best in the moment & thats all.

Sorry man, i agree that is is no longer what is was. i shall rename it to "Halo CE Hell" with (once a good Guild) as that seems fitting now, you where what made it special, like how masterz makes SPV3 what it is, same goes for SBB Storm of storm & blackbird. how ever sad it my be i'm not morning the past. if your server seems fitting i will add it to the list, but first i need an invite link, yes the one you gave does not work for me, feel free to DM me anytime.

Halo CE General Discussion » Host LAN Server on devmode? Apr 7, 2018 12:34 AM (Total replies: 3)

well than use ether HAC2(devmode 1) or Chimera(chimera_devmode true) to enable Developer mode once your in-game, not before.

lazy one here, i quick google search for "halo ce chimera" brings you right to https://opencarnage.net/index.php?/topic/6916-chimera-build-49/&page=1 which states:

Is Chimera compatible with HAC2 and Open Sauce?


Masterz I.G. CMT even includes Chimera in SPV3, which uses the latest version of OpenSauce & has (according to them) over 100K downloads, so ya put your mind at ease, they are as compatible as compatible can be!

Halo CE General Discussion » Bypassing Max Draw Distance with OpenSauce Apr 5, 2018 11:43 PM (Total replies: 8)

not that i know anything but i remember a tool that did this, seems i way to start is using "cheat engine" to modify memory addresses. so ya hope fully some who knows how will respond. maybe 002 can make chimera do this? he's already depreciated many functions of HAC2, why not this.

Stock doesn't support playing external media. Add-ons can allow you to do more, such as opensauce allowing .BIK files to be played (As far as I know, OS is the only one to allow video playing ingame). Technically chimera supports it by using LUA to run commands directly on your computer; have it open up a regular media player on their PC.
also those video's are locked down to 640x480, here's the thread . thats all i know :)

so you say chimera's Lua scripting allows a map to open a program on your PC?! does this sound ripe for abuse to anyone else?
EDIT: thanks kirby_422 AKA 'public enemy number 1' your the best.

Halo CE General Discussion » Is Modacity dead Mar 14, 2018 03:16 PM (Total replies: 16)

i have found that modcity hosts an archive thats still viewable! also the HEK tutorial works. if you have an account the site will run almost normally, but registering is nearly impossible, i have tried!

EDIT: so after some pushing of the Administration i got an account to share with you, it can not post but it will allow you to get on just one last time to save the things you need too, i urge you to save it soon. "clrl" + "s" for a local copy.

User Name:
  For public use 


it's quite likely someone will change the password, PM me & i will reset it. if this happens too often it will be by PM only! play nice children

but i'm really glad that site is dead, a new & better site has
taken it's place open carnage & it's like ten times better, heres a thread about why the old one sucked http://forum.halomaps.org/index.cfm?page=topic&topicID=49069

there is always https://www.se7ensins.com/forums/forums/halo-1-and-pc-modding.17/ i found an old halomods forum archive

here's an old CMT thread on the internet archive, ain't it grand what can be saved?
Note for Dennis: i have permission from the site Administrator to do this.

Can someone upload a copy of Austen1000's campaign port to download? He took the only link down for some reason.

for austen1000: i don't know whats wrong with you, but once you let something out on the internet it won't die if people don't want it too, you have degraded your own work needlessly & have made people question youy sanity. this is of course your choice, but i will actively go against this insanity.

Halo CE General Discussion » My thoughts on some Firefight maps i played Mar 8, 2018 02:07 AM (Total replies: 3)

i will try to better describe my feelings

yes i have, thats the first one i tried, will added.

Halo CE General Discussion » My thoughts on some Firefight maps i played Mar 7, 2018 03:48 PM (Total replies: 3)

Firefight maps i tried, my options on how they "play" .

  • Floodfright
  • my rating: 5
    many weapons to play with, not much other then a quick point & shoot affair

  • Firefight Relic
  • my rating: 3
    simplistic, spanish, you play as a Elite & fight Spartans & lots of flood & some sentinels rather boring, you seem to have to track down the AI for an encounter, there is little here to sustain my interest as shooting the AI gets old fast

  • Firefight Fissurefall
  • my rating: 7
    a challenging fun way to play, too hard for me, use strategy for this simple yet hard fight

  • Repression Firefight
  • my rating: 3
    good looking reach tags but get boring after about ten Minutes & has AI issues. needs something different to keep me entertained, i like the looks of it but there is so much that needs to be here. it's to repetitive to play.

  • Solitude Firefight
  • my rating: 7
    some how i feel weak, but it's a cool challenge, AI's can hide & make finishing a round a boring task

  • Firefight Portent
  • my rating: 9
    FUN is the word here, scripting allows you to keep your self entertained & strategize

  • Firefight Airlock
  • my rating: 7
    Simplistic yet fun, lets the Halo 1 style shine bright, epic Sloow mo feature

  • Mystic Firefight Demo
  • my rating: 6
    large beautiful ares, weak player must use vehicle to win. not much in terms of gameplay, but the scenery looks great

  • Timberlandfirefight
  • my rating: 7
    simple. fun, try to save your allies & kill the enemy. what more is there to want?

  • Odst Ascension Firefight
  • my rating: 6
    point & shoot at it's best, have fun with one life

  • {h3} Odst Firefight Airlock
  • my rating: 5
    if you like feeling weak & dieing a lot

  • Firefight Descent
  • my rating: 10
    slowly gets harder, so no matter your skill level you can still have fun. mixes the encounters up just right: not to much of one thing for it to get boring doing it, not so much
    changes you feel like your still learning the 'feel' of how it plays. nothing feels random, skill is how you win. this is by far the best Halo CE map i have ever played

  • B40 Firefight
  • my rating: 9
    well balanced, forces your encounters just enough, a quintessential firefight: keeps you fighting in a slightly varied manner against a variety of enemy's. this feel comfortable, like i have i have played it before, i think this is because it uses standard stuff & i like that. keeps me coming back :)

Halo CE SP Maps i tried

  • Reality: ODST
  • my rating: 5

    Very hard, makes you think a lot, would give it a higher rating (i like ODST) but it's too hard. i seem to die randomly & without my control at some parts, there is no fun in that. i feel way to power less.

if you have any thoughts feel free to post them
Edited by SomeFan on Mar 7, 2018 at 09:59 PM added a SP map thought. i'll try to give more details now. added Firefight Descent Edited by SomeFan on Mar 8, 2018 at 02:31 AM | B40 Firefight
