Halo CE General Discussion » Is Modacity dead Mar 14, 2018 03:16 PM (Total replies: 16)

i have found that modcity hosts an archive thats still viewable! also the HEK tutorial works. if you have an account the site will run almost normally, but registering is nearly impossible, i have tried!

EDIT: so after some pushing of the Administration i got an account to share with you, it can not post but it will allow you to get on just one last time to save the things you need too, i urge you to save it soon. "clrl" + "s" for a local copy.

User Name:
  For public use 


it's quite likely someone will change the password, PM me & i will reset it. if this happens too often it will be by PM only! play nice children

but i'm really glad that site is dead, a new & better site has
taken it's place open carnage & it's like ten times better, heres a thread about why the old one sucked http://forum.halomaps.org/index.cfm?page=topic&topicID=49069

there is always https://www.se7ensins.com/forums/forums/halo-1-and-pc-modding.17/ i found an old halomods forum archive

here's an old CMT thread on the internet archive, ain't it grand what can be saved?
Note for Dennis: i have permission from the site Administrator to do this.

Halo CE General Discussion » Austen1000 Campaign Port Download Mar 9, 2018 02:38 AM (Total replies: 11)

Quote: --- Original message by: Vergil
Can someone upload a copy of Austen1000's campaign port to download? He took the only link down for some reason.

see here for a download link http://forum.halomaps.org/index.cfm?page=topic&topicID=50647

for austen1000: i don't know whats wrong with you, but once you let something out on the internet it won't die if people don't want it too, you have degraded your own work needlessly & have made people question you sanity. this is of course your choice, but i will actively go against this insanity.

i will try to better describe my feelings

yes i have, thats the first one i tried, will added.

Halo CE General Discussion » My thoughts on some Firefight maps i played Mar 7, 2018 03:48 PM (Total replies: 3)

Firefight maps i tried, my options on how they "play" .

  • Floodfright
  • my rating: 5
    many weapons to play with, not much other then a quick point & shoot affair

  • Firefight Relic
  • my rating: 3
    simplistic, spanish, you play as a Elite & fight Spartans & lots of flood & some sentinels rather boring, you seem to have to track down the AI for an encounter, there is little here to sustain my interest as shooting the AI gets old fast

  • Firefight Fissurefall
  • my rating: 7
    a challenging fun way to play, too hard for me, use strategy for this simple yet hard fight

  • Repression Firefight
  • my rating: 3
    good looking reach tags but get boring after about ten Minutes & has AI issues. needs something different to keep me entertained, i like the looks of it but there is so much that needs to be here. it's to repetitive to play.

  • Solitude Firefight
  • my rating: 7
    some how i feel weak, but it's a cool challenge, AI's can hide & make finishing a round a boring task

  • Firefight Portent
  • my rating: 9
    FUN is the word here, scripting allows you to keep your self entertained & strategize

  • Firefight Airlock
  • my rating: 7
    Simplistic yet fun, lets the Halo 1 style shine bright, epic Sloow mo feature

  • Mystic Firefight Demo
  • my rating: 6
    large beautiful ares, weak player must use vehicle to win. not much in terms of gameplay, but the scenery looks great

  • Timberlandfirefight
  • my rating: 7
    simple. fun, try to save your allies & kill the enemy. what more is there to want?

  • Odst Ascension Firefight
  • my rating: 6
    point & shoot at it's best, have fun with one life

  • {h3} Odst Firefight Airlock
  • my rating: 5
    if you like feeling weak & dieing a lot

  • Firefight Descent
  • my rating: 10
    slowly gets harder, so no matter your skill level you can still have fun. mixes the encounters up just right: not to much of one thing for it to get boring doing it, not so much
    changes you feel like your still learning the 'feel' of how it plays. nothing feels random, skill is how you win. this is by far the best Halo CE map i have ever played

  • B40 Firefight
  • my rating: 9
    well balanced, forces your encounters just enough, a quintessential firefight: keeps you fighting in a slightly varied manner against a variety of enemy's. this feel comfortable, like i have i have played it before, i think this is because it uses standard stuff & i like that. keeps me coming back :)

Halo CE SP Maps i tried

  • Reality: ODST
  • my rating: 5

    Very hard, makes you think a lot, would give it a higher rating (i like ODST) but it's too hard. i seem to die randomly & without my control at some parts, there is no fun in that. i feel way to power less.

if you have any thoughts feel free to post them
Edited by SomeFan on Mar 7, 2018 at 09:59 PM added a SP map thought. i'll try to give more details now. added Firefight Descent Edited by SomeFan on Mar 8, 2018 at 02:31 AM | B40 Firefight

It's literally looks like just copy-pasting the files created when you use Creative ALchemy Universal.

exactly what good old Sled did but with one exception; the "dsound.ini" has modified values, you might get Creative ALchemy Universal from https://community.pcgamingwiki.com/files/file/28-creative-alchemy-universal/ but as it's states "This solution is deprecated" & then it gives you everything you need to get the new version working, as i'm such a nice guy & all you really need is "dsound.dll" & "dsound.ini" i have uploaded those on my OpenCarnage.net post so that one might use then with ease. the "dsound.dll" values are default in this one, so you might consider tweaking them to your liking.

how to play the Halo CE MOD " Sonic The Hedgehog : Genesis of the Azure Wind" demo.

For those coming from Halo CE NOW! i have repacked the files for advanced users to be more sane: Sonicdemo repacked.zip , i don't deserve the attention but the mod does, please enjoy!

download "Sonicdemo.rar" from http://www.moddb.com/mods/sonic-the-hedgehog-genesis-of-the-azure-wind/downloads/kingdom-valley-single-player-demo

extract it with WinRar or something, open it & again extract "Halo Custom Edition.rar", & "maps.rar" right here.

find & copy "bungie.bik", & "SonicLauncher.exe"

find Halo custom Edition right click it & click "Open file location" & paste what's in your clipBoard (Ctrl = V)

right click "SonicLauncher.exe" & select "send to" > Desktop

open "maps" & rename "ui.map" to "ui.map.old"

go back to the window with "Sonicdemo" & copy "Kingdom Valley.map", & "UI.map" & paste it in you Halo CE's "maps" folder

download a third person view utility http://hce.halomaps.org/index.cfm?fid=6983

start the utility & SonicLauncher from the desktop shortcut

click & wait, get to multi-player > LAN > & scroll down till you see "Kingdom Valley" & play as slayer.

activate third person (use Alt+ Tab to switch back & forth between programs)

enjoy the Demo!

Note that OpenSauce disables startup video's if a "initc.txt" file is present

Works great for me on windows 7 64 Bit without running it as administrator or in the game folder. it "just works".

EDIT: just use the one on halomaps http://hce.halomaps.org/index.cfm?fid=6983 (linked above) as this is made by the same guy that made the other one lol, not sure why i didn't get it sooner. as to what is different other then the UI changes is beyond me.
all though there are others

like this one by Tirthraaj Gobin AKA PCHacker932 on youtube

i would link his work but he also makes hacks to cheat so i will just upload the files for you download here by mixtape.moe

I am still amused by how the tags I released a while ago have only been used on latino maps.

thats because they can't afford the real thing & Halo CE is super easy to pirate (don't do it boys).

If anyone still has a copy of the Sapphire UI Alpha would you please beam me a copy? site's like sendspace.com are super easy to use & don't require any accounts.

Also thank you for your work! but as i can see it's a passion of you're's so no thanks necessary i guess, i hope you enjoyed the people as much as making it :) maybe you have seen the HCEA UI?

Here are the Pictures & links to download his Test releases for the lazy :)

Alpha released: jan 8, 2011 most downloaded one at 51K (this is the one people know you for)


Initial Reboot Test released:Jun 24, 2011 little done & buggy, new menu, new filter


Test Nē2 released: Jun 25, 2011 less bugs, only one without the dreaded gamepad botton icons


Test Nē3 released: Sep 16, 2011 cool static back-round, new settings menu edit:Thanks to Mangenkyo's continued support you can now get it, thanks again man.


Test Nē4 released: Jan 17, 2012 moving back-round, different settings menu. this is the last release posted here.


P.S. your unfinished works can be building blocks, thats the beauty of openSource; unload this burden

Sorry for breaking your heart :( didn't what more pain for ya, it's just that these old UI's are so awesome!

A note to "the others", i don't care to talk about useless things like "Bumping old threads" because i has not here at the time does not mean i can't post on old threads like you guys had the opportunity too do at the time.
