Make Forge maps and are tired of links expiring?
Date: 8/21/13 8:46 pm

I'm working on a link not-shortener specifically geared towards the Forger. You'll be able to generate a fixed link that you can change the destination of after the fact. This will let you post your map across the internet and change the link to it at a single spot instead of losing potential downloaders because they're still being directed at a deleted or out of date version of your map instead of the newest one.

It will be locked to Halo Waypoint file share URLs so there won't be any concern of someone generating a link to a map file then changing it to a shock site or something.

Anyway, if you're interested in testing this, sign up for an account at . If you already have a Fire Team Zulu account back from when the site was active, it should still work. This feature will be one of many on the eventually relaunched site, but I wanted to get it up and running before the rest of the thing.

Testing will start over the next one or two days. Just go straight to the link and you'll know when it's up for testing.
