So, while there's no new replies these days, I'll contact the ERSB CEO's and see what they say about this mod (as in, getting this a rating). I'll chime back tomorrow when I get an answer.

Why are you going out of your way to get a mod rated?

Based on the information they have put out, they only deal with games and apps.

This sounds ridiculous.

It is good that you are thinking outside the box but that is not always THE way to go.

Most of what you suggested are not impossible to do, back in the older days or now. However, I would like to say that some things exist, or do not exist, for a reason.

Awesome, your new tagset got the h2a battle rifle working in my map!

Couple of things though, that you probably already now!

-No HUD for ammo count or grenades
-No reticle for weapon
-Ammo count of br is flickery (not solid)

It would be good if i could send you a pic of my in-game with battle rifle but im unsure how to on the forums.

Apart from that things are looking good, the weapon model, animations, sound and texture is spot on!

Cant wait for future updates!

You see, we expected people to choose their own HUDs to use with the BR.
That's why we didn't include a weapon HUD or grenade HUDs in this mini release.

Hey guys, I have some animations I need to add to sets, but to do this I have to go through the tedious and sometimes broken process of importing all animations in max, making my one single animation I wanna add, and then export it all back, it's a bit annoying, and personally it's really not fun to work on, I know of the animation editor by Kornman00, but that just seems to replace anims, rather then add, is there any tool or way to inject new animations into existing model_animations tags?
Edited by MEGASEAN2812 on Feb 23, 2016 at 05:44 PM

I believe it's possible to replace a fake animation you add in Guerilla.

I've only done this once with the CMT Spartan and Zteam Spartan animations though so I can not guarantee it will work.

Fun fact: FOV is one of the (many) advantages of playing split-screen when doing 2v2's in CE. The FOV is absolutely jacked.


That's, what, 8:3? Use 16:3 like a real pro.

I prefer 13:37.

no

wrong

kay


They can be set up in the same way in max. Just import a bsp form Reach or something and look on how the materials are set up by the scripts. You can copy that over to use with Halo 4 materials. Ez

Very well, I will try that. Thank you.

CC bitmaps in H4 are not set up the same way as it is in Reach or any of the past Halo games for that matter.
Edited by Dumb AI on Jan 8, 2016 at 06:13 PM


You're wrong, most of the BSP's in the other games use CC masks to combine multiple materials in a similar way to Halo 4 armor colors work... But what do I know? I just work on the program haha

Alright then, I am wrong.

I can not say the same about what I said within the context and scope established on this page. What you directed me to is not applicable for what I aimed to do, and for whatever reason, the two different CC setups are treated as if they could be processed the same way.

To answer your rhetorical question, I'd say you certainly would know quite a bit, though there are few things that you may need to work on.

I have yet to figure out how secondary works with H4 CC.

What's the secret?


Look at the OP for how they work.


Slight issue with this. If you ever actually looked at the CC maps for halo 4, you'll notice that theres white for primary, gray for secondary, and black for no CC. As far as i know you cant exactly pick out specific colors in a single channel when setting up materials in 3ds max. The way I've been doing it is seperating each mask in the CC into different channels of a new bitmap. This way you can get clean materials that arent so watered down


I don't have time to fully explain it right now, but you can set it up in Max via a color change mask. If you import something from Reach (usually something covenant) the CC mask is setup for you by the import script in the material.

What's up with the h1 animations?

Apparently, it's a recreation of the Assault Rifle seen in Halo CE Anniversary, which uses the Halo 3 model and Halo 1 animations.

Halo CE General Discussion » script problem Dec 28, 2015 03:36 PM (Total replies: 4)

This line might be the issue.
(sleep_until (< 4 (ai_conversation_status cliff_welcome ))1 )(set global_cliff_welcome true ))

The right parenthesis at the end (red) goes with the left one at the beginning of the script.

Maybe you could try this:

(sleep_until (< 4 (ai_conversation_status cliff_welcome )) 1)
(set global_cliff_welcome true )
)

so where is the programming background to support the statement?

I'm pretty sure Mootjuh meant the Halo 3 UI for CE.

Halo CE General Discussion » script problem Dec 27, 2015 11:55 PM (Total replies: 4)

It appears the script is missing a right parenthesis.

You are going to need to find where that missing parenthesis should be. If you are not sure how or where, post the script here.

There may also be additional problems with that part of the whole script.

So....why exactly are CE people afraid of Halo Online? What's wrong with more Halo games on PC?

I like to think that we are afraid of the trolls who keep making threads of about it.
