I love the custom maps in this list. Always fun.

If you like these, you'll probably also like the ones here (They're made by some of the same people): https://opencarnage.net/index.php?/topic/7455-halo-15-maps-converted-to-ce/

Catering to furry/zoophile freaks?


Nope, just cute animals. The type that everyone likes.

Nice space gains. I hope you can figure out the ai BSP attachment thing without too much more hassle.

Gotta love tool being compiled as a debug build making it slow.

I really think having an opensource map compiler will benefit us all at some point.


Python


Can confirm the node count upgrade.

Another worry though is that each node has its own set of matrices in memory, and objects only have so much memory to go around until they stop spawning because there isn't any space to put them in anymore. units being the heaviest on memory even without their nodes.

Remember to have some LODs where you removed the skinning from loads of bones. I haven't checked if that actually helps. But I know Bungie intended it to work that way.

Also, keep a check on the limit on animation data loaded in memory at a time. Too much data causes the game to just exception. A solution is compressing as many animations as possible. Luckily Halo's compression isn't that bad looking. Another solution is again removing nodes.

A lot of this is stuff I learned from having access to the old z-team h2 export tools.

A while ago I was working on a converter that directly converts amf to gbx models. I guess I should pick that up again sometime in the coming months.

Really though, use that amf importer that makes nodes/frames, the original amf importer does some broken things to bones, and you're better off not using it because of that.


I appreciate all of the words every single one of you is saying, but you're forgetting one important question.

Can we have the source? Please pretty please give us the source so that we can soak up that knowledge and possibly make different tools using it.

Most of our recent advancements in this community in the last few years has been because of people making their tools opensource and people working off each other and helping each other out.

I don't like dropbox because I have seen way more dead dropbox links than dead mediafire links. My personal suggestion goes out to google drive though.

Please provide the best link to an executable of MosesofEgypt's Refinery.


It's a tutorial, with a download link in the description.

Ok, this rustled my jimmies. Don't you ever tell people to use HEK+ again, tell them to use refinery so we can stop having broken zooms, animation functions, overlays, weapon type settings, crashing opensauce shaders and all that stuff.

You see that? This one is starting to learn how to speak halomaps!

Halo CE Technical / Map Design » Halo 2 style shield with health bar. May 3, 2019 06:49 PM (Total replies: 7)

I guess you'd make a function on the biped(, make it clamp to ones), set it to shield in, and have an attachment that will dispatch damage effects on you with negative damage as long as your shields are full (>=1).

Halo CE General Discussion » I can't compile sounds Apr 30, 2019 01:47 AM (Total replies: 2)

Here is a wiki page on sound compilation, although I don't think that will help much. https://hek.wikia.com/wiki/Sound

I suggest trying to move your modding directory out of program files, there may be insufficient permissions. Also make sure that the sound that you are trying to import is not in use by any program like audacity, or a virus scanner that is very possessive.

You should also try deleting the sound files in your tag directory to make sure that their brokenness isn't interfering with your hopefully non-broken wave files.

Halo CE General Discussion » HELP ME WITH VIRUS Apr 9, 2019 01:59 AM (Total replies: 6)

You mean I shouldn't run everything as admin?

I sure hope you made backups, turns out protecting maps can hurt when you've just lost all progress.

In all seriousness, start your pc in safe mode and install a virus scanner, let it do its job while still in safe mode and hope for the best.


Here, read the original thread on OpenCarnage.net.

What's a joke?

Maybe I could put an optional setting in Pool to apply this patch if it doesn't already exist.


Doit. You should also add the option to change the execution folder.

While its outside the scope of what you've done, do you know if it also fixes the problem where OS tool can't read a shared map file of a size of 2gb or higher?


Bungie probably used signed integers for all of its file reading operations, what that means is that the filesize can max be 2GB instead of 4GB. You probably shouldn't have more than that though, because CE is 32bit.
Edited by SBB_Michelle on Mar 30, 2019 at 01:32 AM


Bye, bye OS data/resource maps.

This is a tool I wrote to remove the max filesize from the map compilation process. It also always writes 0 to the map file header.
This makes it that Halo will never refuse to open a map file because of its own filesize check.

This has been tested and all signs point to it being safe.
You can download the patch script here: https://github.com/gbMichelle/HCE-STK/blob/master/tool_patcher.py
Right-click the raw button and choose "save as" if you only want the script.
You'll need Python 3.2 or higher to run it.

I have not uploaded an edited .exe file because I know there is at least 5 different tool.exe's floating around right now. And I want to be transparent about what it changes.
