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).

Why do you call your self stupid? your issue was real & suggesting a mirror is smart.

appears the discord system changed or my link was bad all along because removing the slash at the end fixes it

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 Nș2 released: Jun 25, 2011 less bugs, only one without the dreaded gamepad botton icons


Test Nș3 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 Nș4 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.

It can't die. Then I won't have access to my 3ds max 8 trial.

next time be smart & save your self a copy & save to it a more reliable source like the Internet archive; http://archive.org even this site WILL go down given enough time. R.I.P. will we miss you?

Is this a troll ?

It does not work on WIndows 10 64bits

Well if it's a troll post then he deserve's to be hung!

Welcome to one of my wonderful tutorials, i see you are having some trouble with the "Fix" by SBB Storm & SBB Michel i found hidden away in there Discored http://discord.me/SBB in #FAQ
you be the judge of if i'm a Troll but he's not, in the end not every one can get these "Fixes" to work so don't feel to bad :) also i can not verify that it works as i don't poses a Windows 10 PC< if a really wanted there's VirtualBox & piracy but.....
so can't really help much without at leased with some information of you configuration & hardware.

next time you what to call someone try a PM or a reply http://forum.halomaps.org/index.cfm?page=topic&topicID=50376

This "Net neutrality" is a devil in disguise, it's point is the exact opposite of what they say, just like the patriot act, so fight this unrighteous control (if you live in the U.S.A.)
send a PM to Dennis & tell him to remove that popup! do the right thing here guys.

Halo CE General Discussion » Batch scripts, organization, & UI's Oct 8, 2017 11:42 PM (Total replies: 0)

This is not so much a "release" but a way to get it tested & get feed back. with that in mind here we go.

I have made a collection of Menu UI's for Halo CE & batch scripts to easily use them,
about every UI ever made is in it (well just the ones still available for download) i have organized, tested, & screen-shotted everyone of them.

Now about the batch scripts, i made these my self in about 20 hours of leaning & writing,
so that using any UI is as easy as two clicks.

Now this is were you come in, i what more people to use this so i can make it better by knowing:
any bugs, hows my organization? & did i miss any UI's?.

You may download it here UI pack & easy menu switching scripts ALPHA.7z. 7-ZIP will unzip it

So what do you think?

Halo CE General Discussion » HAC2 + OS compat fix Sep 25, 2017 12:25 PM (Total replies: 126)

Howdy all, sense Btcc22 has left us i have taken it upon my self to help the community in this matter, in my post OpenSauce v4 & HAC2 compatibility fixes i detail the necessary steps & files than must be taken.

if a have missed any relevant information just let me now.

Halo CE General Discussion » OpenSauce v4 & HAC2 compatibility fixes Sep 25, 2017 01:20 AM (Total replies: 4)

Is Halo Anticheat 2 causing your game to crash? Well you can thank OpenSauce for that, because they are not compatible with eachother! Here i will detail how to fix this and a little history, for posterity.

On  Mar 3, 2015  Btcc22 Released a dll to fix Halo CE crashing when using HAC2 with OpenSauce v4 installed. As of November 8, 2016 he stopped hosting it, but thanks to an Internet archive you can still  download version  (saved  March 4, 2016),
only Windows 7 is supported by this version. Rîshî Răj made a video to help people understand how to use it.

On April 9, 2017 (SBB) Storm & (SBB) Michelle Released their own fix, but this one uses a completely different method to fix the problem then Btcc22's version. They did not intend to make one, but accidentally did in the process of trial and error!
This version supports Windows 8 and 10.

How to install
Download hac.dll from there discord channel in #FAQ directly linked here
Copy hac.dll  to your Halo CE's installations main folder %ProgramFiles%\Microsoft Games\Halo Custom Edition\  (you will see haloce.exe in there).
Add -no_os_gamestate to your shortcut's "property target" as shown:
Un-tick map downloading in Open Sauce to avoid irregularities:

Notes: these are not fully stable & may crash your game

Halo CE General Discussion » Universal UI Update? Sep 15, 2017 08:04 PM (Total replies: 29)

i'm not sure, i don't do that sort of thing & as R93_Sniper said: the UUI isnt protected iirc so you should just be able to rip it and modify it as need be
tools like Refinery http://forum.halomaps.org/index.cfm?page=topic&topicID=50247 should be helpful
But you could ask SubhadeepJazz https://www.reddit.com/user/SubhadeepJazz or discord https://discord.gg/2UbwXev @sbdJazz

@Jobalisk i don't understand whats wrong with my grammar....

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/

Edited by SomeFan on Sep 12, 2017 at 11:58 PM

i'm not sure a understand, you mean that these errors are from a name change?
if so, how can this be? they are all designed to have the name ui.map, are they not?
so the Reach UI is broken? but it's are still here?(& the Red UI)
& can i discover witch name they are compiled to have?
also is there a way to bypass this "checksum verification"

i know this if a lot of questions but i'm really what to know what happened & how to fix it.
Edited by SomeFan on Sep 4, 2017 at 08:13 PM

So i know this will sound silly, but some of the UI's i have stopped working

when i rename or delete ui.map in Halo CE/maps & replace it with the Reach UI file named ui.map i get an error

The error message is:
We have detected that one of the Halo PC Files is missing or corrupted. We recommend removing and reinstalling the game. (levels/ui/ui)

  • i have many PC's with windows 7 & XP that i have tried this with the same error

  • i have tried redownloading,hash cheking & extracting with different tools = same error

  • i have tried 5 plus installs & different versions of Halo CE = same error

so plain old data corruption or system failure is not possible

Here are the UI's that give me this error (all others works an expected)

Reach UI
Red UI
but you need an account so here's a mirror

i never got the Red UI to work, but i'm pretty sure i had the Reach UI working about 3 month ago & it's the second most recent UI
so is this just me? i can't think of how i could have possibly messed up of this one.
