Halo CE General Discussion » A sneak peak of my flood problem :P Dec 13, 2018 09:55 PM (Total replies: 7)

Thanks guys! I will keep you updated.

Edit: I got most of the day off and it's the beginning of the holiday so I spent almost the entire day on animations and got most of the Brute animations finished and I think it's the best one yet! Finished Matt's marine animation graph and finally fixed the flood elite.

Yeah i do have it already rigged to the original halo 3 skeleton and altheros's h2 brute animations work pretty well so I will use that as a base.

I have been having a blast making these guys come to life with 3ds max. This is just a sneak peak at my tag set which i'm gonna release some day.


Fix Infection Form H2 animation graph: done
Re-do Flood Elite H2 animation graph to seem more like halo 3 anis: complete! 12/5/18
finish Zteam's flood human animation graph: incomplete
Re-do Combat Brute animations using altheros beserk brute anis: almost complete needs testing 12/5/18

Add more animations to Matt's beautiful animation graph: Complete! 12/5/18
Finish Pure forms: Incomplete (not currently a priority)

All Models have been ported by me using my own shaders and modified shaders by various talented modders.

Release date unknown, hopefully I will finish before Christmas!
BTW I got imgur to work.

well tool is not very friendly in general and once the motivation is lost no one wants to continue hoping tool wont screw you over after spending hours on something.

Submitting files to the site is no longer working. Has it intentionally been disabled? @Dennis

SUBMIT FILES PAGE: http://hce.halomaps.org/index.cfm?pg=60

I'm uploading a .zip, only 20MB in size. Using the inspector, the page gives the following error: "failed to load resource server responded with a status of 500".

After pressing "Start Upload", the process begins; the 0% begins to increase. After a few seconds, the % number is replaced by a yellow triangle, then a pop-up error occurs.

There's no announcement section I have seen indicating Upload are cut off, though it does look like most uploads stopped significantly after 2016.

Are any of you also facing this problem with the upload feature?

Dennis stopped updating quite a while ago. Try uploading it to CE3

Oh hey dead hamster glad to still see you around

NO DO NOT USE A FRAME BOX I spent hours in rage because of this. All imported models should have something like frame pelvis or bip01 pelvis. Link everything including the geometry you want to it. To properly import materials uncheck Attach Parts of Mesh Within Region in the model geometry options located on the bottom right.
You will have the manually rename the geometry however, you can just import the normal model in a different scene to view their names. Regions are not 100% necessary unless you want removable limbs like the flood however they are easy to make.

Definitely gonna try this later.

1. I heard the most of the dreamcast tags were lost after a hard drive failure including the forerunner weapons.

2. Gamecheat probably did fake his and only few people have access to h2a models. I really wan't to get my hands on those sweet flood models.

3. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rC3hqIyjthc&list=PLsYFcdY5bHyIEj38SFXPRgTCqItJMyLRi that playlist contains the basics for modeling in 3dsmax. I have the latest version and the ui is pretty much the same. I recommend getting a custom biped with halo 1 bones and avoid custom animations for now.

4. All my tagging skills are from trial and error I never did find any tutorials sadly.

damn I feel enlightened

the only thing i know is that one tick is roughly 0.03 seconds I could be horribly though.

With the scripting for example I cannot find out how to do conditions example: Get music to stop playing at a certain trigger point, objective or killing off an encounter. OR spawning an encounter AFTER killing another encounter.

The scripts I know as of right now:
Fade in
Chapter title
Objective pop up text (left side of screen text that pops up telling you to do something)
Spawn/Destroy vehicles, encounters etc.
Spawn encounters in seats (THIS is buggy half the time some AI don't spawn in seats I set)
Trigger music
Trigger volumes
Start another mission (I experimented and did a trigger volume to kill the player, restart the mission and load into another campaign mission)

(sound_looping_start levels\a10\music\a10_01 none 1.00) starts music

(sound_looping_stop levels\a10\music\a10_01) ends music

and there is so many ai scripts I can't remember them.

http://hce.halomaps.org/index.cfm?fid=2809 has most or all scripts

http://hce.halomaps.org/index.cfm?fid=5938 all ai scripts

yep that's it

I recommend doing animations last cause it ain't easy especially those freaking overlays or maybe I just suck at it.

oh and congrats on your first map I am terrified to try and make one.
