Halo CE General Discussion » Does anyone need AI sync May 15, 2017 03:51 PM (Total replies: 17)

Quote: --- Original message by: altis94
If you know how to add AI to a map then you can learn how to set it up to be synced. It's not hard, just takes a lot of time because you need to create a vehicle for each animation that you want to sync and stuff.

Sounds like something that could be automated using a tool.

Halo CE Technical / Map Design » Custom Sound Issue Mar 25, 2017 01:07 AM (Total replies: 12)

The m16a3 sound compiled fine for me.

You do have the sounds in your data folder and not the tags folder, right? That's usually what that error means, and that's how I messed up when I tried my first sound compiling a while back.

When you point to a non-existent file, tool will seem to compile right, but when you compile again, it will throw that error.

Those are some seriously ugly cars you have there, well of the 2 images that aren't broken, I'm assuming the broken image is another ugly car.

Might as well make a Nissan Leaf and put it in halo.

Woah, woah the zonda I could understand being labeled as "striking" but ugly???

And as for thr CLK GTR you just deserve a backhander.

They're extremely busy, the headlights look silly, the doors are ridiculous, the mirrors look like they want to snap off, there's a single windshield wiper which looks just wrong, the spoiler makes the car look like it has brain damage, the scoop on the roof doesn't make any sense and just makes it uglier, and finally the hood ornament looks extremely out of place. I wouldn't be caught dead in one of these let alone driving one.

Why does this belong in halo? That makes 0 sense. An ugly car that's not even a popular style or model in a futuristic military game where you fight aliens that no one plays anymore? Why? for what purpose?

Hope you realize this was ten years ago this was posted. More people played back then.

As for the reason for wanting this in Halo? For a map such as Chronopolis, I would guess.

I'd list people but I usually lurked and modified stock maps for AI battles for personal use instead of actually playing custom content.

Lumoria's probably my favorite piece of community-created content, with SPv3 + TSC:E being close seconds with their delicious tagset.

You will probably never see this but there are halo maps that try to be like racing games.

Could you stop bumping months/years old posts?

The method I showed works for me.

Even when I change lower bound in guerilla it doesn't work for me, which is odd.

Scripting them on works fine for me as well, so I'm not sure why the bounds method isn't working.

Could you please go into some more detail about this? I don't know where that is you got that screenshot from

You should be able to check this box here in the .biped tag under the 'integrated light power' function, though it doesn't want to work for me.


Halo CE General Discussion » flashlights on marines Mar 1, 2017 05:48 AM (Total replies: 11)

To get an encounter of marines to activate their flashlights, you'd script something like this.

(units_set_desired_flashlight_state (ai_actors enc_marines) 1)

'enc_marines' is the encounter name, while 1 is the boolean (0 = false, 1 = true).

Didn't you like
leave forever
or something

I think if anything this goes to show that you can never truly leave HMF.

Can confirm, am still here.

I remember when there were so many posts on this subject it wasn't even funny.

Pretty sure Dennis can't appoint new moderators due to some sort of rule with UXB Internet. New traffic might just overwhelm the site, though it would be nice to see some new people around here and have the place revitalized (at least for a bit).

Looks like it'd be fun to play as long as the AI don't have any major issues in MP.

Edit: Just took a look at your other post, this is some impressive work here. Outstanding job so far!

Halo CE General Discussion » Halo CE is not dying! Dec 27, 2015 08:40 PM (Total replies: 67)

I'm still here after... what, five or six years? I joined the Halo: Online hype when they first cracked it and helped fix a few bugs and quickly grew bored as currently Halo: Online simply doesn't have the customization of Halo CE. Once (if) H:O has the ability to edit/create maps and place AI and such, then I believe more people will migrate over.

For now, it's not as good as Halo Custom Edition. There's not really any argument to be made over it imo.

Every I add a gun or a pelican I keep getting a error like tag is too large, tag is corrupted or no free tag space

Make sure you're using the Open Sauce version of Sapien.

It would be pretty amazing if you got this to work completely. Good to see the community's still gaining some new members after all this time. (Unless, of course, you're an older member on a newer account.)

Pssh, I was also 11 when I made this account.

Dennis would probably change your username for you, though I don't exactly know as I've never tried.

Hello, I have found a solution to that problem. You need to make internet Explorer your mainbrowser. That should fix the problem.

Totally not worth it. Also, you know this is five years old, right?

Halo CE Technical / Map Design » Navpoints scripting HELP! Jun 25, 2015 12:04 PM (Total replies: 2)

It's been a long time since I've done waypoints. Try putting your assigned team name in quotations, like so: "player"

If not, the globals you're using probably has different names for the waypoints. You'll want to look in the HUD globals. The path to CMT's HUD globals is shown in this image:

Halo CE Technical / Map Design » Guerilla map compile Jun 22, 2015 05:30 PM (Total replies: 18)

Quote: --- Original message by: dmb1
I`ve been trying projectile swapping in guerilla with one weapon and then I compile the .scenario but the map comes out smaller than the stock map (bloodgulch) is this normal or am I doing something wrong, because the size of the map changes I cant get it to work on a dedi so others can join it (bloodgulch)

If anyone can give me some advice on this, Thanks

The people trying to join need your version of the map.

Only the 'src\cmt\weapons' scripts should have any variable by that name. Did you re-download the cmt script & bonus releases before starting?

Try that now, and first, from the script release, go in 'scripts\src' and drag 'cmt', 'globals' and 'shared' to your 'MFOLDER\scripts\src'. Overwrite all. From the bonus release, go in 'scripts\src' and drag over 'cmt' and 'globals'. Overwrite all.

These shouldn't be changed ever, as they're not scenario-specific.

Finally, it looks like it's also looking in your scenario scripts and finding the variable. Try and find it in your EQUIPTEST.hs that should be in 'src\scenarios\EQUIPTEST'. You'll want to comment it out in there (or remove it). Also, make sure you don't have an #include <src\cmt\weapons\...> in your scenario scripts (they should be in 'src\scenarios\EQUIPTEST' for you). That shouldn't be a problem though, unless the pre-processor broke, or the #ifdef in the weapon scripts was messed with.

Just for reference, from what I've gathered, the way the pre-processor works is it takes all of it's includes, finds the related scripts, and smashes them together (pretty much).

If Sapien is telling you that an error is in '_components_cmt', for instance, then it's most likely in one of your 'src\cmt\' scripts. '_components_scenario' would be from your 'src\scenarios\MAPNAME' and so on.
