Make sure you're running as an administator, you may be using cached files if you don't

Tried this, same result.

You're using the wrong language version of Halo is what it sounds like. The UI.map from English won't have the same offsets to bitmaps as the UI.map from Spanish, for example.

That's what i thought, so then I specifically went back and reinstalled the English language version of the game with the same ui.map and everything. Now when I load the game I can't even see anything; it just boots me back to the desktop although the game still seems to be running in the background. When I close the program, I just get gathering exception error. At this point I have no idea what the issue would be.

Try reinstalling using this procedure.

Same result using this installation guide as using the regular one.

HaloPC and CE are really old games, if you don't update them to 1.10, they often choose not to run at all on new hardware

Oh and the bare minimum amount of maps needed to run HaloCE(properly) are:

  • bitmaps.map

  • loc.map

  • sounds.map

  • ui.map



(and I forgot what fixes the rainbow artifacts(if the 1.10 patch doesn't. I assume it fixes it))

Patch hasn't helped whatsoever, every install I have run the patch and the same problem exists.

Halo CE Technical / Map Design » UI.map issue, now affects whole install Sep 29, 2017 06:05 PM (Total replies: 9)

About a week ago I decided to clear out my map files to get rid of maps I didn't need since they were taking up space. I ended up accidentally deleting ui.map, which I quickly realized while trying to load the game again. I then attempted to put back in the default ui.map, causing everything to look all rainbow and strange. Lastly, I attempted to put back in the universal ui.map that I had used before deleting the map files, which worked except for the strange rainbow-like artifacts on the screen. However, I couldn't load a game like this.

I uninstalled, and reinstalled my game to the same directory. Now, when the game loads it just sends me back to the desktop and it says there's been a Gathering Exceptions error. Tried another reinstall, no luck. Not sure where to go from here. Any advice would be appreciated.
