Halo CE General Discussion » HAC2 not saving new FOV Oct 26, 2016 02:20 PM (Total replies: 2)

You can add 'fov=number' to the preferences.ini file.

If you have any logs for the crash when you exit, I can look into it.

Halo CE General Discussion » HAC2 + OS compat fix Sep 21, 2016 05:06 PM (Total replies: 126)

thanks, can I ask what work is in progress or planning to be added to the client?

also there is small bug where scope blur disabled and enabled are interchanged, i.e. when it's disabled it says in the console that it's enabled.

Thanks, I'll look into that. I don't want to talk too much about features in the pipeline until there's something that's close to release though.

so hac to has recently been updated to, can we get a changelog or ANY WORD from Btcc22 as to the current direction/status of HAC2?

  • Minor bug fix for console text output

  • New command, redirect_kill_feed, will take the kill-feed out of the chat area and display the messages on the HUD, Mac/Xbox style.

  • Toggling sightjacking and multiteam vehicles on the server will now update HAC clients instantly, rather than only after a map change/new game

There is still work in the pipeline but it's a very slow pipe.

Can confirm.


HPC does actually use multiple cores, just not to great effect. Having said that,it also has no need to use multiple cores to great effect.

I get; Program can't start because vorbisfile.dll is missing from your pc.

Did you make sure to copy vorbisfile.dll to the same directory as guerilla.exe?

Running as admin also works fine for me - no virtual store involved.

Run your tools as admin or move them to a directory that doesn't need administrative rights to write to. Problem solved.

I looked into this for HAC2 but the decent (as far as automated translation goes) services require paid accounts, as Sparky mentioned.

PM noted, will upload your maps tonight.

wasn't there a huge debate about this that dennis debunked?

There was but I debunked it.

Not even close to being true.

Halo CE General Discussion » Time freeze Jan 18, 2016 10:16 AM (Total replies: 9)

I've made a build of HAC2 with a 'time' control command for you, here. Just rename the .dl_ to .dll and drop it into your Halo folder.

The command is 'time <tickrate>'. A value of 0 will freeze the game and 30 will run the game at the correct speed. For best results, start an Internet game from within Halo.

This was supposed to be for a dedicated server game pause command but development has been glacial.

Magnetism refers to bullets, not your reticle, being pulled towards an enemy target. It's present in every Halo game, PC and console.

Thanks for the post - the problem should be resolved.

Can maps be submitted through you guys? Or is Btcc22 the only one that can submit new maps?

The maps have to go through me, although the next release (whenever that may be) should see decentralised map downloading, allowing servers to host their own maps.

I have no issues with HAC or any of the 3rd party ad-ins (except those with built in Trojans).

User made applications that attempt to phone home is... well it's very very bad. We will never host this application if it does this.

Second, I think you are confused with him asking for bandwidth for map hosting, not app hosting.
Nope not at all. We will not host this application for download in the file archive if it phones home without user knowledge or initiation. We have already removed several that have done that.

I don't think it takes much reading between the lines to see that trust was a concern, which is fair enough.

If this happens again what is to stop someone registering the domain and spreading a virus as a fake update?

Good question. The intention was to switch to signed updates to ensure that the updater will only accept files that I've produced. Admittedly, development of HAC2 has stagnated thanks to a combination of other projects, life and (mostly) needing a break from Halo-related development.

With that said, I'll do what I can to replace the ailing loader.dll by the end of the month.

Dennis' concerns weren't about whether a bug in the HTTP library's networking in conjunction with a Direct3D related issue would cause a crash under particular conditions but rather trust.

Edit: Services should be functional once more.

I'm not a fan of the skybox. It clashes with the map's sandy aesthetic. Burial Mounds has a somewhat similar aesthetic and a much better skybox.

When I played seriously from around 2007-'10 there wasn't much of an emphasis on keeping track of the Powerup/Power Weapon spawns, even at the (perceived) higher level.

I'd say that while most players in your typical scrim didn't bother, the ones at the higher levels of play did. There are a number of timer programs floating around from back in the end that were fairly popular.

But the vast majority of PC players seem to be turned off by the fact that players can actually use the tools at their disposal, including spamming grenades and using powerups and heavies.

I'm thankful that competitive PC players generally played 'no heavies' on smaller maps. Shame that didn't always apply to the FRG on larger maps too.

HAC2 actually has a timers with a team broadcast option but they were disabled before release. If anybody ever compiles it from source, there's a bonus feature.
