If the MEK is giving you issues installing, you can install the MEKE, which is the essentials edition. It comes prebuilt with accelerators already compiled. It only contains mozzarilla, refinery, and pool though, so if you're planning to use any of the other tools in the MEK you'll need to actually install the MEK. The accelerator modules are only used in mozzarilla, refinery, and hboc(halo bitmap optimizer and converter) so if you can't get them installed it's not a huge deal since the MEKE already contains 2 of those 3.

Here's the MEKE thread.


I managed to install meke, thanks MosesofEgypt.

Once I install 3ds max, I will take a look at your tutorials Sparky, thanks.

Running things as admin isn't really an issue.

But what is is installing MEKE, it says "The Visual Studio 2015 build tools are required for the accelerator modules these programs use to be compliled." I have tried search for this, but have had no luck.

I decided to get a student license of 3ds max 2017, I believe that part of the editing process requires importing bsp's to sapien, do you know if there is a plugin that allows you to do that in 3ds max 2017?

Also thanks so far with helping me out.

I'd like to get into mapping but don't really know what to download, mainly since tools for mapping have evolved since modding on this game first began.

I know the HEK exists, and I've already downloaded MEK, but I don't know where to go from there. I've also heard that there is a lot of difficulties with the program tool.exe, an if there is anything to make that step of mapping easier.

I'm also looking for a decent 3D modelling tool, preferably free. As far as I know, it also needs support for .BSP exporting and maybe importing.

I don't really know much so help would be much appreciated.

It appears that that file doesn't actually exist in my folder, that might be why its not saving my options.

Edit: I managed to fix the problem by creating a file named preferences, then in the properties changing its file type to .ini, and then finally typing in


Thanks for letting me know about the problem not giraffe and FtDSpartn

If you have Halo installed in the default folder, it's likely a Windows UAC admin perms issue. Try running the game as Administrator or reinstall the game in a folder other than Program Files. You should also check if the config file is read-only in its properties.

I tried all of those things and it did not work. Also, by config file, do you mean Config.txt under the Halo Custom Edition folder?

Hello people of Halo Maps

Everytime I exit Halo CE, HAC2 settings such as FOV, custom chat, optic packs, etc, get reverted back to default (ie fov is something like 80 degrees, no custom chat or optic pack).

So I was just inquiring if anyone knows a solution to this issue? Thanks
