ya these are the elites that are super hard on normal to with no health mods :P but theres a way to beat them i figured out run for your life past them grab the shotty hide in a corner except now they lunge more then half the time :P. but im going to post a video of me tryng to beat them. oh and I gave me two humans to see how good they were oh snap they didnt even have time to shoot i set them up just right :]


HaHa, well, anyway if it's not what I stated first, I don't know what it is ;). Anyway, as said before, lunging is glitchy.

dual weild online = fail. Second how long before you learn how to model better??


hehe.. Long :)
Well, I got the patience, but somehow I always get such boxy results..

i did that once with an underwater tunnel and it gushed purple blood at the end


Haha, lol, anyway I haven't tried it out yet, I went to Avatar 3D, great movie ^_^

EDIT: Oh ye, thanks for all the great help :)
EDIT2: Ok, it worked, same method as I used on my mac (on real PC now) So it could be my mac, thanks anyway :)

were you able to see fog in the map file i linked?


I think I replied right at the moment you edited your post ;)

W8, I'll try :)

EDIT: It works, btw huntr skin walls? :D

uhhhh...ummm...i thought you'd like it since you made your cliffs bleed. yeah.

ok since it works i'll link up the files so you can see the setup.

Lol, thanks, but hey, I didn't change my shaders yet ;) That's why they bleed xD

3. I attached the plane to the level, then I linked the level to the frame.
4. I named the material of the plane +unused$


ok, i just checked out one of my levels that has working fog and it's not set up that way although tuts i have seen claim it won't show up if it's not...all lies :p

my fog plane is actually water but it shouldn't make a difference. the geometry and the material should both be named +unused$ although im not entirely certain the geometry couldn't be named "fog" because the material name should override. the geometry should then be linked to the frame, not attached to the level.

in mine i have level, water!$, and waterfall!$ all linked to the frame and that works.

E: my material name isn't water!$ but it does have the !$ shader symbols. only the geometry has that name. since specific geometry defines the fog region (normals) i'm thinking it's more to do with your model setup. there are different types of portal defining geometries/materials but they are specific in what they are for. i don't know if sapien will always recognize this and simply treat clusters the same even though the property being applied will not work.

11. I Added the Gephyrophobia.fog to my fog pallette, and saved the tag to my level


rename the tag to something else.



also, open the bsp in guerilla and scroll down to the fog section to see if "fog_bottom" is listed.

E2: see if this has fog, if it does then i can give you the files so you can look at the setup

Hmmm, thanks for the reply!

I renamed the fog tag, everything is listed in guerilla and
I must just try the fog plane apart thing..

Also I'm going to delete the middle eddge, just to see if it makes any difference ;)

well, I did.. Weird thing is when a cluster is applied the plane will be painted.. So isn't your statement wrong?
Also does it matter if my fog plane has 2 triangles?


maybe i could be wrong about that...this is all from memory..i haven't used fog in a while i just know the way i did it worked.

a single plane with 2 tris is ideal..depending on the geometry of the area you're portaling for fog.

something isn't right though, it sounds like you've got it set up correctly.

are you using a custom fog tag or did you copy-paste-rename one from the campaign? is it possible that your fog is applied but the tag is not set up properly so that the fog is essentially not fog (or just too thin to have an effect)?


Wait, I'll tell you what I've done:

1. I made my map in 3ds max xD (Duh)
2. I made a plane, gave it 2 tris by adding an edge through the middle,
3. I attached the plane to the level, then I linked the level to the frame.
4. I named the material of the plane +unused$,
5. I ran my bitmaps in tool
6. I made shaders of them..
7. I ran structure in tool WITHOUT errors, not even the one you told me about: Clipping
through non-leaves..
8. I opened my .scenario tag, did the standard process (Set to multiplayer, add sky)
9. I ran lightmaps, which was a screw up thanks to the fail model of my cliffs. (I fixed)
10. I made my own lightmaps (just grey tinted xD)
11. I Added the Gephyrophobia.fog to my fog pallette, and saved the tag to my level,
12. Saved the structure_bsp to make sure that's done right,
13. I opened my Fog, under cluster properties.. I set it to the name: Fog_bottom (Which I
gave it in step 11)
14. Applied the cluster
15. I saved the structure_bsp again..
16. Re-opened Sapien..
17. After it loaded the fog wasn't there, so I re-ran lightmaps..
18. Not there :( (Wasn't my custom lightmap, just the real ones..)
19. Again, Made me :C

the cluster is green because of the checkbox in the tool window.

make sure the camera is completely inside the cluster and that you save to bsp in sapien before you close the palette.

you might have a stupid video card, mine is..i can't see fog. get someone to test it ingame and see if its there.


I can see the fog in Geph... Whatever it's called (Bridge scareness) lol..

Uhmm.. I also used THAT .fog tag..

But I can't see my own, (The cluster IS green btw) so it IS applied

You should have UV mapped it, so it's not stretched.


I did UV map, But I was to lazy to do it properly, anyway, these comments are enough information :) Thanks guys.

The material name should be:

Oh.. I thought just: *materialname*$ (without the *)

thanks, I'll try when I get back from school :)

EDIT: OK NOW IM PISSED!

I can see my plane in Sapien, applied the fog, (it shows green)

I CANT SEE MY FOG! I EVEN RE-RAN LIGHTMAPS... UGH.. I GIVE UP IF NO ONE ANSWERS..

why another topic!?

make sure it's linked to the frame as a separate object. if that doesn't work i guess you could try to attach it to the bsp but i dont think that works.

in tool, if you did it right, you'll get errors like "clipped leaves" and should be some info in the clusters because there will be 2 if you add fog. check for that in your debug text or in the bsp tag in geurilla.

also, if you get rid of your the fog tag you made and don't have one at all tool will create a default fog tag called untitled.fog in the tags folder. if it's not there it's set up wrong in max.

follow the Level Creation Part 2 and Population sections of the HEK like i told you before: http://hce.halomaps.org/hek/

it's just like setting up water only your not calling it water!$ and your not using that shader.


Because the topic was kind of.. dead..
