Halo CE General Discussion » Operation Purgepoint (Formerly Project X) Jan 6, 2018 10:11 AM (Total replies: 109)

That video seemed a little odd... I think I've actually played Operation Purgepoint before... This old YouTube video here reveals that this person has played it too!


Halo CE General Discussion » making Halo great again Jan 2, 2018 10:48 PM (Total replies: 5)

As sad as I was (as well as my other buddies) being a long time Halo fan, I've finally come to the conclusion that Halo is dead. 343 butchered it. The old 360 junkers are no fun unless you JTAG and I have to say unlike the Fallout and GTA modding communities, no offence guys, this already small, now remnant member modding community kinda blows now. Lets face it the mods are dying, there are barely any tutorials or discussions VS other modding communities, and HCE servers are unplayable unless your in a certain region.

Really nothing much left to do but to put up with HMCC and do little crappy mods for HCE since there's too many error prone issues preventing magic from happening.

The entire multiplayer side of EVERY Halo including these PC ones is almost non-existent in comparison to other competing and now new game giants emerging. Honestly, not that Halo has just died its been left behind really.

Oh yeah story wise- lore friendly not so much. I should of mentioned lore friendly assets or visuals more specifically.

Ah alright.

Say though if I wanted to rename my craptestmap to display as My Tags Lab within Halo how would I go about that with your tools?

I wanted to rename some of my stupidly named maps without having to rebuild everything from scratch.

Hey guys I love lore friendly mods when it comes to modding (sometimes). Fallout and GTA have a great wealth of them but I've noticed with Halo, apart from a few multiplayer maps that look like they could fool a new comer to think its part of the game or DLC, I've never really seen any cool tags or campaign maps apart from Lumoria and Flood Forgotten Exile.

Are there any other lore friendly adventures floating around out there that I've missed on YouTube or MediaFire sites outside of CE3 and Halo Maps?

Moses I'm really dumb but the word checksum reminded me of an issue I had in the past with renaming maps...

Can this also help with renaming maps?

Don't even mention Waypoint. I speak on behalf of the hundreds, probably thousands who were banned forever from that joint. If anyone is aware of the South Park episode where they had that Safe Space crap? You'd see what I mean... Or we could just go by what most say, the sites run by a bunch of SJW moderators. Hypocritical scum-bags don't deserve acknowledgement.

Waypoint: Full of 343 fan boys and know nothing of the original trilogy nor anything PC related so don't bother. Heck you'd probably get banned for even mentioning CE if one of the mods is in the right mood!

Halo CE Technical / Map Design » Halo Modding Complete Tutorial Series Sep 28, 2017 07:34 PM (Total replies: 2)

That's pretty cool. There are many videos I've been looking for that I somehow never came across which you've featured here, nice work Sparky.

Though I do have a suggestion, or request or question. Seeing as that beautiful playlist has a wealth of videos, do you think you could find the perfect, easy to follow, scripting, UI alteration, HUD element creation tutorials for that video line up?

Also, just in case, I think all those videos should be downloaded and or saved one someone's database on a site or computer JUST IN CASE the channels ever shut down so the videos are ALWAYS there for the future.

Otherwise, superb.

Unless Masterz releases everything as a working folder full of tags, one of my buddies has so far tinkered with and gotten every scenario and bsp working (don't know if they work with OS or non OS, left that detail out) and he's reversed engineered some weapons and bipeds to work as non OS tags so far. Hopefully he'll release them to all if Masterz doesn't eventually.

Oh this sounds fascinating. I really wish Halo 2 had a HEK like CE's...

Halo CE General Discussion » Anyone want to tinker with my marine? Sep 17, 2017 08:42 PM (Total replies: 2)

No that pack only has face alterations.

I want to make (or know if one already exists out there) armoured marines with the marine model's complete head and hat geometry and texture.

So far I chopped the armoured and marine heads off and placed it on the armoured marine's body but I keep getting an error and cant export it.

As I said unless one already exists does anyone want to grab mine and see if they can export it and share it with everyone?

I'm sorry I've been under a rock for a while but I thought you were part of CMT or their competition or something right? What's your project on?

I know a guy who's working on his own project (he got banned from here I think, you cant even see his profile). He sent me two map files of what I presume were CMT's a10 and b30 (it had their BSPs in it) though with all vanilla tags.

Boring stuff aside, he said he doesn't care and MIGHT release his entire tag folder so we can all tinker with CMT's extended campaign missions.

But in all honesty, I couldn't contain myself and already ripped his a10 and b30 and I'm currently having my own fun. Sorry Masterz, I'm sprinkling my own special goodies all over those mighty fine extended campaign missions of yours. I promise I wont distribute anything (cant promise anything from my benefactor though) but I'm enjoying those new areas and placing my own junk in them!

Guess I don't ever have to ask if we'd ever get access to the stuff to make our own edits!

As you know I gave up on custom characters because I keep getting a stupid material error that I cant seem to fix no matter what I do.

My plan: Make marine_armored variants that utilise the marine variant heads and hats.

Before if anyone is interested... Has this already been achieved and this post is pointless? If so do please let me know.

Halo CE Technical / Map Design » An ideal setup for 3DS MAX 2013? Sep 16, 2017 09:58 AM (Total replies: 2)

Never mind all fixed... Once again an option somehow changed itself without my knowledge. Somehow I'm beginning to think something is haunting my programs...

Edited by Halo Noob Modder117 on Sep 16, 2017 at 11:05 AM

Already in an excellent one thanks.

So far I've done my scripts and I've not only replicated CMT's restorations but I've learned all the other functions.

So far I'm pleased to announce that the only mod issues I'm having is editing models and BSPs in 3DS. Otherwise, I can now do everything else.

SubhadeepJazz is making a UUI v2 as i think you know.. so here is some of his work
Main Menu

Campaign selection menu idea 1

Campaign selection menu idea 2

Here's the public source https://www.reddit.com/r/halospv3/comments/4h3d2t/the_main_menu_interface/

That's pretty sick... I like it... Though I do think his 'Fire Fight' should be changed to 'Firefight' as its displayed in traditional Halo menus, otherwise I think that UI is looking sweet.

So with permission, if I wanted to add my own campaign, multiplayer or firefight levels, how would I go about doing that? I know how to link pictures, descriptions etc. What tag or script do you need to alter for it to display other levels?

Halo CE General Discussion » Playing with an Xbox One Controller. Sep 14, 2017 12:07 AM (Total replies: 6)

Can you pause the game? It wont let me map the back or start (2 squares and 3 lines buttons). My one controller works fine but I always have to hit the escape key on my computer to access the pause menu...

Ok, ill extract some biped models and follow a 'from scratch' tutorial and see if I can replicate edits. If I ever succeed I'll post an update and or make a guide.

EDIT: I made some progress but ill post my new issue here instead of making another thread since this is related to it.

When I export my JMS I get this error: --Unknown property: "name" in undefined

The other window highlights line 793: format "%\n%\n" geom_materials[m].name "<none>" to:jms

So what does this mean and how would I go about fixing this if its actually fixable?
Edited by Halo Noob Modder117 on Sep 15, 2017 at 05:08 AM

Ok ill do this as a test.

I imported the armoured marine GBX into 3DS as you do with the 'run max script' thing, he appears all fine with his markers and all (minus the textures)...

I deleted his head and hid everything in the scene. I then ran the process again and imported the marine GBX and deleted everything except the head mesh.

I then unhid everything and linked every marker and mesh to the pelvis part (as seen in most tutorials).

So far I got an armoured marine with the marine head, all linked to the pelvis part, all its markers, meshes and no texture (I'm assuming I don't have to apply textures again? If not how do I import the model with its textures?)

So I then run the JMS export and it fails. I get that invalid name error that I listed in my previous post. I thought I'd get more information from tool but the debug didn't show anything.

That's basically the process. So my issue, I cannot combine other pieces of mesh to other GBX models without getting that error.

Sorry its the best I could put it. If its too complex to explain, is there a tutorial somewhere out there that explains how to EDIT EXISTING GBX models rather than the custom, from scratch creations?

Halo CE General Discussion » Universal UI Update? Sep 12, 2017 03:10 AM (Total replies: 29)

I have a lazy somewhat fun solution to not have to update the UI ever again...

After releasing the updated version, why not leave a little 'how to' note and or assets to allow all users to add whatever extra maps they come across in the future that aren't included with the update?

Just food for thought.
