Halo CE General Discussion » Halo Maps Website Status Yesterday @ 01:09 PM (Total replies: 6)

I am sure there has been much (completely unfounded) speculation, rumors, falsehoods, whispering, shouting, cursing and self indulgent complaining that the websites were unavailable for 4 days. FOUR WHOLE DAYS! My god! The humanity!

So here goes:

Yes, I am still among the living.

No, the websites have not closed.

Yes, I intend to keep them open.

No, none of the files were lost.

I had to get a part for the database array that services the gaming websites and because of the pandemic and lock-downs it took much longer than normal to get it shipped.

Please stay safe. Wash your hands. Wear a mask. Socially distance and take care.

-Dennis

Also glad to see Dennis isn't dead after all the speculation
Nope I am still breathing. I had to get a part for the database array that services the gaming websites and because of the pandemic and lock-downs it took much longer than normal to get it shipped.

This is lunacy. Why not just lock any threads that have nothing to do with 'modding CE?'
Buy a server, open your own forum and moderate it how you see fit. Until then keep your opinions about it to yourself. I really have very little patience left with back seat drivers or smart-mouthed mouthed juveniles.

You realise when I'm posting in all these stupid forums that aren't even discussing modding I'm simply being a ass right?
I fixed that for you.

HTTPS when?

Certs are free and easy.
Probably never. This is a public form that does not collect any personal information and frankly I don't care if someone captures the packets of data flowing from or to this particular website. Reading it would only lower their IQ buy a dozen points anyway.

Also, Dennis: What legal right do you have to distribute Halo Custom Edition,
The one granted me by the user agreement, and the EULA.

Stop trying to be a primadonna. If you were as smart as you claim you think you are you would have never had to ask such an incredibly stupid and inane question.

Yes. imo it might as well be abandoned officially right?
No it is not "officially" abandoned nor has the copyright expired. Your opinion does not align with the facts.

I am necro-bumping this thread.

It is 2020 now. Is CE considered abandonware yet?

No.

You guys are too young to be so nihilistic.

Is this trolling? I just can't tell anymore
Of course it is. No reasonable person would respond that way.

Until an official editing toolkit becomes available it may not make sense to add it to this site.
Those astute enough to notice will see that the websites only supported games that allowed for level creation and sharing. The MCC does not.

Is this site closing in 2018?

I'll get back to you on that in 2020.

I'd like to follow up on this comment as we are quickly approaching 2020.
To answer Matt's question No it won't be closing in 2018. To answer yours I have no plans to close it.

I tried putting all the Universal UI maps into one big map pack but the problems is the file size becomes so big most file sharing sites won't let me upload it.
Bingo!

@Dennis
A person should do what they genuinely believe is best.

Don't try to inject yourself into something in which you have only partial information.


(Respecting people's opinion + offending people) / 2 ≠ "love your neighbor as yourself"

You have no idea and yet you work so hard to act unlikable. Your opinion in the matter is unwarranted, misinformed and not required.
