Halo CE General Discussion » Question about objects Jun 22, 2017 03:53 PM (Total replies: 6)

I'm kind of new to this. Is it possible to set a property (as opposed to an effect) to have a model spawn inside of another model at a marker?

For example, let's say I have a gun rack as a scenery object, and I want to spawn a scenery object of a gun at a particular marker in the rack. Is this possible without effects or scripts?

You can also get reference models here and just merge them into 3DS scenes.

Halo CE Technical / Map Design » Garbage/Scenery Despawn time? Feb 2, 2016 10:13 PM (Total replies: 3)

I didn't think it would work, but it did, and beautifully at that. Thanks a lot!

Halo CE Technical / Map Design » Garbage/Scenery Despawn time? Feb 2, 2016 09:10 PM (Total replies: 3)

I'm trying to spawn a non-collidable object for a short time, then have it despawn. Currently I'm using the garbage object and it works fairly well, but it despawns within 10 seconds. I'm lookin for it to stay spawned for a few minutes. Is there a way to control the garbage despawn time?

If not, I figured the next best thing would be to create a scenery object instead. Problem is, how do I despawn a scenery object without scripts?

Halo CE Technical / Map Design » Creation Effect for Biped Feb 2, 2016 08:34 PM (Total replies: 2)

Thank you. There was the creation effect and another effect that it triggered. I set the delay for the wrong one.

Halo CE Technical / Map Design » Creation Effect for Biped Feb 2, 2016 05:33 PM (Total replies: 2)

I can't seem to get a creation effect for bipeds to work. I figured it would use the effect_locations_block marker but that doesn't seem to work. Changing it to a marker on the biped (e.g "left foot") does not work either. The effect works when I trigger it any other way, such as through a projectile detonation.

I'm trying to have an effect trigger when a player spawns.

Halo CE Technical / Map Design » Projectile/Collision model question Dec 16, 2015 03:40 AM (Total replies: 4)

Yes, it is a scenery item. It sounds like a pain having to change all the projectiles, but I guess it'll have to do. Thanks all

Halo CE Technical / Map Design » Projectile/Collision model question Dec 15, 2015 02:26 PM (Total replies: 4)

So I'm making a little chain-link fence and I wanted bullets to be able to go through it but not people. Is there a way to do this? I also wanted a way to prevent grenades from going through it but as far as the game cares, the grenade is a projectile just like any other bullet (right?).

I thought I would make a collision model of a wall with a bunch of holes in it so some bullets will get through and grenades will most likely not get through, but it adds a lot of polys and will affect game performance (right?).

Good to see this project is still alive.

Halo CE Technical / Map Design » Best version of 3DS to use? Jul 21, 2013 06:32 PM (Total replies: 7)

I got a new computer and I have Windows 7 64 bit. I'm running into problems with 3DS Max 8 where it starts to take an abnormal amount of resources and completely freezes. What is the latest version of 3DS Max where I will be able to run it fine on this system and be able to run all the HEK scripts (gbx model importer, jms exporter, etc) without problem?

Setting anti-aliasing to application control fixed it up. Thanks all.

Halo CE General Discussion » Installation Issue Jul 18, 2013 07:00 AM (Total replies: 5)

I just got a new laptop and it's on Windows 7 Ultimate x64. I installed Halo Custom Edition and the installation seems to have went fine. I ran the installation as administrator and in compatibility mode. When I run the game, it loads the splash screen then "loads" the game in the background...so the game is stuck at the splash screen but if I move my mouse around I hear the noises of hovering over multiplayer, settings, etc. I never had problems on Windows 7 Home Premium x64 on my desktop. I also have the same problem and more with Halo: Combat Evolved on this laptop.

I've tried running as administrator, XP compatibility, windowed mode, disabling visual themes, disabling desktop composition, and disabling scaling on high DPI.

I'd really like some sort of solution as soon as possible because I'm voice acting in Project: Lawson and I'd really like to play through it...help?

When I load Guerilla, Halo Tag Converter, HEK Plus, or anything like that and open up the menu (File, Tools, View, etc...) I have a bunch of loading bars ticking down around the menu and it freezes. Then I get this exception:

I'm on Windows 7 Home Premium and run it in XP compatibility mode and run as administrator. I'd really like to find some fix for this, thanks.

Halo CE Technical / Map Design » Camera Tracks? Dec 20, 2010 01:27 PM (Total replies: 0)

Is there any specific way to create them? There are 9 control points but I don't understand exactly how they work. Any insight?

I want to create a camera track that doesn't revolve around a certain point on a vehicle, but stays in a fixed part of it. Kind of like first person.

    Halo CE Technical / Map Design » Base Texturing Problem Jul 23, 2009 11:19 AM (Total replies: 2)

    Sweet, it worked. Thanks goyanks.

    Halo CE Technical / Map Design » Base Texturing Problem Jul 23, 2009 01:34 AM (Total replies: 2)

    I just converted a base from a .gmax, to .obj, to .3ds files.

    I imported the 3ds file into my map, set the IDs of the faces, and added a multi/sub object to it but the images aren't displayed on the base, the base is just solid white. I did set it to view map in viewport and the same multi/sub object was applied to a beam emitter base and it worked fine. I've tried it with both the 3ds, and the obj and I get the same result.

    Whats wrong? I did get an options prompt when I imported the .obj file, should I have set something?

    Halo CE Technical / Map Design » Base Texturing Jul 21, 2009 09:45 PM (Total replies: 0)

    I tried using the search feature on this forum but I'm more accustomed to vBulletin so I kinda failed.

    Well I wanted to know about the 3D Models of bases that I can add to maps. Is there an easy way to texture them (like if they're already assigned IDs) or do I have to assign IDs and texture them myself? OR are there pre-textured models like scenery (that are well textured) ?

    EDIT: Wow, sorry for posting this. I imported a base and explored the IDs, the ID's are already set. Sorry for this thread.
