Sounds like your chat is not working

Go to where you have the Halo Custom Edition program installed and look in a folder called redist: Install msxmlenu

Well no,

Am not that smart. But being purely an animator for a while now has taught me pretty well on how on how to fake things using what I have on hand.

Regularly using super outdated enterprise software certainly helps :)

Halo CE General Discussion » Universal UI Update? Sep 13, 2017 02:12 PM (Total replies: 26)

If guerilla makes mention of a preview image tag and a map_description tag, wouldn't it be possible to get tool to compile those and have the UI map take advantage of it?

EDIT: So that these considerations aren't necessary in the future?

What exporter are you using for the final product?

EDIT: The version number of it

Can I feel your


In any case, can this topic at least be merged with the original chimera topic that's only a couple of topics down? It really shouldn't have been made in the first place

It's pretty nice when you get to the point where you haven't used the HEK for like 5 years but still know every nook and cranny of the engine :)

Working on smoothing groups and trying to find some original textures to work with because the stock textures are kinda too much.

It "creates," for lack of a better word, new inbetween frames at the cost of CPU usage.

Which shouldn't matter much( cpu usage ) for an old game like this

It doesn't use scanlines(oldschool CRT TV interpolation) the way that its creator seems to explain. So it isn't blending//blurring two finished images together. It's rendering new ones entirely.

Looks like bad hypersmoothed "flash-tweens" considering halo uses 25//30fps animation

Trying to experiment with dynamic shadows and volumetric lighting dust and stuff, so am making a little mockup area//under highway sinkhole thing

He's pregnant

Most "traditionally compiled" maps cannot be renamed as this interferes with the checksum verification

(It does make me curious how this ended up in the archive )

What have you done so far?

I do give it props for using actual " Re-projection " instead of the old, nasty scanline based interpolation. So you're actually getting fully rendered inbetweens.

I simply don't like it clashing with halo 1's low-poly//low-texres artstyle and it provably doesn't affect how I play. I got my skill from the days of the Geforce2 MX200

I'll play a game like omega boost with 240Hz though. Because I like that game. It's actiony, full of framecopied motionblur laser beams and chain lightning. And has fun bullethell that LOOKS good at high framerate.

Halo looks like a cheaply shot mexican telenovela at 60Rpjs

Lovely tool for recording because extra motion helps a lot with splicing and editwork :)

But nope, if you're expecting me to play an actual "match" with it on? Nope !

I'm working purely in C++ and DirectX without an engine

Halo CE General Discussion » [RELEASE] Composer Aug 28, 2017 11:29 AM (Total replies: 17)

playing music or ripping tags isn't exactly realtime though.

Unless absolute performance is needed, like say, making a fully-fledged direct3D or vulkan renderer, c++ is kinda unnecessary. Then you gotta compile for every little change(luckily new stuff can run through code first without needing this), it's definitely not needed for simple little mundane tasks xD
Edited by OrangeJuice on Aug 28, 2017 at 12:11 PM

I tend to just lock most new games at 24fps or 30 because they usually have item-for-item-for-object motionblur

I dislike the soap opera effect that comes from trying to smooth out lower-framerates.

I always keep a few 128gb thumbdrives in my bag loaded with programs, and little batch-files and scripting I make myself xD

I also dislike installing stuff unless they're like . . . fully fleshed out programs that do more than one thing. Funny thing to agree on
