It seems so long ago, but I think I voiced the scientist in both Lumoria releases. As for script production, all I did was re-word my lines to sound like me and put it in a MS word template for easy reading.

As I understand it: something came up, and Dennis had to be away from home for an extended period of time to tend to a family member. This meant he was unable to playtest the submitted maps.

Halo CE General Discussion » Some UI.map Tutorial? Sep 9, 2018 07:01 PM (Total replies: 2)

Maybe one of these might help

I had to move the website to a different server and somehow missed some of the images. Just a few (about 2,000) when the move was completed. I apologize that I didn't notice them missing. They have been restored from backups and all should be well again. If you see one missing please let me know.

Sorry about that.

Perhaps I should simply make software to use all by myself and share nothing
Please do. You may find that more people will like you that way since you won't be trying to win their affection/approval.

I have spent about $20,000 USD on server hosting expenses,

That is your choice, it was a bad one, but yours to make. You can't buy friends.

Then you did it for the wrong reasons.

Turn off or set to application controlled the anti-aliasing setting in your video driver

If you are running the dedicated server and the Client on the same machine then you need to change the ports for one or the other. Otherwise they will conflict and you won't be able to join the game of the server is already running.

You can either change the server port in the command line or go into your client game and change the ports there.

I started a dedicated server and can't connect to it

Honestly, I'm surprised this site isn't dead (or shut down by Dennis lol).
The website has only been open for a little over 14 years. While that may be a major part of your guys's lifetime for me it is just an eye blink.

I feel like these copyright discussions popup from time to time. If people want to sell Halo assets they made they should find another way to make money.
You are correct. For the most part copyright's (in the gaming community in particular) do not become an issue until here is money involved. Either you are doing something that interferes with the owners income or trying to sell something (intellectual property) you don't own. Until money is involved it is mostly treated as viral advertising.

"It doesn't work that way"
Yes it still could.

You are missing context. Copyright laws are not black and white and have various shades of grey, which was my point. Just hotlinking or posting a picture not yours on your website is not a violation of the copyright unless it is. It could also definitely not be a copyright violation but at the same time definitely an actionable licensing violation. or neither. It is not cut and dried and nearly always complex. The short answer to his example was "It doesn't work that way". meaning it is not a simple as that.

"It was offered without charge"
See? you said it yourself. Offering something without charge is known as being free.

Free, in his context, implies without restrictions but in reality all it means is without an exchange of money. Again you are missing the point.

Anyone who has ever "used" an image, such as by copying it, or hot-linking to it, without explicit copyright permission, has also committed copyright infringement!
It doesn't work that way.

Quote: --- Original message by: sparky after all, Halo Online was made available for free during beta testing, wasn't it?
No it wasn't. It was offered without charge but all licensing and copyrights were maintained. Modifying, copying or redistribution was prohibited.

If you have any idea what I'm saying here, you can clearly see that the whole copyright law system is a massive conspiratorial sham.
Says the guy who brags about having "multiple copyrights".

What is clear is you have no idea what you are talking about.

Adding wildlife to Lumoria would make sense since it's a planet, but I'm not sure if it would make sense for blind wolves
Forerunner planets and Rings worlds would most likely share the same flora and fauna since they had to be transplanted from somewhere. While there would be a larger abundance on planets I would think that there would be a larger diversity on ring worlds since they were manufactured and could draw on numerous planets. After all Lumoria is actually an artifact not a planet. I know because I said so in the second episode.

It's a permission issue, so reinstalling the OS is not required. Right click on your Halo folder in Documents > My Games and in the security tab, give full control to the current user.
This is a valid solution.

Or try disabling UAC
Never, ever do this! It leaves your PC open to malware.
