I'll take a look and see if it's worth organizing them and uploading. There's a ton of random crap I've attempted to do over the years, not sure what use people can find. I'll have to see if there's anything I can't release, such as Contingency animations. I'll check with Masters regarding any CMT stuff cause that's a good chunk. Everything else is probably fair game since I don't quite care anymore and the community doesn't seem as critical of "stealing credit" or "rips" like it used to be.
Oops, late to my own party by a few days. Apologies. I would mark the occasion somehow, maybe I can release all of my animation files but I'm not sure who would be interested.
Damn, was that really almost 7 years ago? Not quite that either.
I may have indeed been imagining homing rockets. I've been playing CE for over a decade (and my forum anniversary is in two days!) that I felt I've seen laser before, but I'm probably mixing the memories up with a minutia of other games I have played over the years.
I believe I have seen guided rockets before. The "follow me" feature is a true 10/10 addition though.

Why did you use some random SMG animations instead of the actual Halo 2 ones for the tagset though?
Mistake, sorry. blame Jesse.
Quote: --- Original message by: MEGA_VKNGNow there's a name I haven't heard in a long time. Which set of animations though? HDoan did like 3 iterations among H3T's tagset, and while each was marginally better...I remember I got into such a fit of rage thinking I could do better that I ended up beginning to animate in secret with my mentor ICEE and my mother Donut.
I guess its worth mentioning I have a lot of the HDoan anims too, and I guess I'll also include those.
Halo 2 is a great game.

Looks a little boxy, have you tried watching any cliff tutorials? Otherwise looks nice, one day you'll be a great modeler :D
Quote: --- Original message by: UnevenElefant5I wouldn't wholly say we're "kickin' around", moreso lurking in the shadows for months at a time before revealing ourselves for select posts.
Nice to see there's still a bunch of oldies kickin' around here still.
Doesn't seem like it's been so long, but apparently in a month it will be my 10 year forum registration anniversary, so I suppose it has been quite long indeed.
Quote: --- Original message by: UnevenElefant5Ah, it's good to see you around! I'm glad to hear you are doing well and hope the world has not been too cruel to you the past few years during your transition. I certainly remember talking with you a great deal along with Gamma and Jesse, good times.

Hmm, what about UnevenElefant? I used to see them a lot a few years back.
Last I heard she was transgender but whatever happened after didn't seem to be good. https://i.imgur.com/Y9x3xcL.png
Hello! Thank you for this! Wow. was this seriously posted only 4 days ago? Talk about coincidence. You are correct, I am a transgender woman. I go by Danielle. I'm still alive, though I had some rough times for a really long while. But I'm better now. I go by a different online handle nowadays and am actually doing alright! Been on HRT and living openly for about 7 months now (after many awful years in the closet) and got the court to issue an order for my new name too. I stumbled on this while I was lurking today and had to log back in to say something. Appreciate u makin' a point to set the record straight with regards to my gender :) and I'm floored that people still even remember my old name. I was 14 when I joined this site and I'm 23 now. So much can change in 9 years, damn. Any other queer halomaps vets, send me a PM if you're still around
I still can't figure out who you are, and I used to troll far harder as an obnoxious kid back in the day. Funny seeing a few other oldies popping up in this thread.

and a quick one for my homie ODX
Quote: --- Original message by: MEGA_VKNGI lurk every so often and occasionally make an appearance. My student version of Max 2012 ran out and, while I have other .edu accounts at my disposal, I'm not planning on reviving anytime soon. I have thought about packaging all of my animation files together and releasing them, though. Quote: --- Original message by: Super Flanker

Gamma927 and ODX is still alive?
Gamma pursued a new career, ODX is mostly silent.
Oh, and my list:
1) k0rnman (OpenSauce)
2) Arteen (tons of cool maps which eventually turned into CMT MP maps)
3) Masterz1337 (CMT)
4) CtrlAltDest0y/Choking Victim/ShadowSpartan (Zteam, Halo 2/3 animations, etc)
5) Higuy (he's cool guy)
6) t3h_lag (CMT animator, made lots of awesome rigs and content)
7) Kirby (script god)
8) Dane (he makes cool textures, needs more grime)
9) Donut/ICEE (my Halo CE mother and father, respectively. Part of Sigma)
Gamma and I were messing around with a map at one point. It didn't really go that well objective-wise, I think we made a pretty neat atmosphere and the tagset is one of my favorites.

Quote: --- Original message by: NertezI really cannot discern what's up with this post. I like how you supported the "disrespectful" portion by, as your next statement even, labeling Masters as a cult leader. But whether this in its entirety is sarcasm, irony, or something I'm far too inept to understand, I really am not sure.
Wait, there's something we're forgetting... big project, lotsa maps, came with some kind of sauce iirc that you had to take, gave you ESP? Third revision? Moved to reddit as we were too 'close-minded' and disrespectful? Cult leader who used numerological codes such as 1337 and wished to be referred to as 'Master'???
Ah, nvm, probably confusing it with something else.
Quote: --- Original message by: EtchyaSketchI mean that's just like, your opinion man. The goal was never to please everybody. CMT throughout the years (at least to me) has always been about a bunch of great people teaming up to smash together some cool stuff. Sometimes it works, sometimes it doesn't. Sometimes people enjoy the content, sometimes people don't.
You mean sub-par campaign mod with years of work for nothing that impressive?
I have been in this community for a decade at this point. I have seen the release of each Halo game and their subsequent effects on the modding community. I have seen phenomenal people come through this community who have gone on to work in the industry. I have been great friends with many of them and worked with some as well.
None were ever enthusiastic about recreating any Halo campaign in this 15 year old engine. It is not a simple task, and if it was then somebody would have done so by now.
With that said, I admire your dedication and confidence. I was the same when I was younger and by no means do I want to stifle your enthusiasm. Building your own copies of assets from the Halo games is honestly the best way to learn. My animations started as copies of Halo 3's animations, which to this day I still take massive inspiration from them. I merely encourage you to educate yourself and maintain a consciousness of the scope of the project and be a little realistic on what you can do with the time and motivation you have, or else you'll end up disappointed.

-Removed a Focus Rifle melee animation that should have not been included.
Wow, this thread and this community has become far more toxic that I ever remember.
This is a great step for Halo on PC, but of course nothing to this community is ever good enough. We barely know any of the details and so many people have already been making what look to be awful assumptions.
Microsoft is testing the grounds of PC if you didn't already realize, don't screw it up and you'll likely get Halo 6 on PC (since keeping it locked to the Xbox One wouldn't help them boost sales much when its getting later in the console cycle, but releasing to the PC community would certainly help boost Halo sales).
Oh and a final note: Windows 10 is wonderful and comparing this to Halo 2 Vista is a moot analogy.
I literally lost brain cells watching that video.
And I enjoyed every second of the shenanigans it therein showed. Arr!/Arrrrrr
Quote: --- Original message by: Spartan314Like R93 said, perfection is subjective in animation. I find basically all of Halo 3's animations to be perfect, but I've met plenty who believe they're terrible for whatever reason.
If an animation is perfect then regardless of framerate it'll be the same goodness portrayed wouldn't it?
In terms of framerate...30 to 60 makes a massive difference in force I've found. 3ds Max for me is set to 30FPS, but animating for Contingency in CryEngine (going up to 60FPS) I found tons of issues with force looking great in 30 and sluggish in 60. It might just be a matter of me being used to 30, since after playing MCC for hours and hours I've found the animations to still look great. Honestly it's really weird, I can't quite find a way to explain why.

clipping as in . . ?

Why are you rendering in the "User" camera!?
Forgive my ignorance, but... which camera should I use?
