Re: If there's no way to port old game types...

In Response To: If there's no way to port old game types... (kornman00)

: then keeping binary compatibility or making changes shouldn't be an issue. Of
: course, H3 didn't use a monolithic/scripted multiplayer engine (CTF, KOTH,
: were all hard coded and ran under different 'game engines'), so it really
: wouldn't be a sort of "copy and paste" job from the
: implementations they did for Reach/H4. Of course, it was also an external
: studio who worked on the H3+ XBO ports (the same one who ported Spartan
: Assault from what I understand). If 343i didn't explicitly say "Do
: this. Do it naow." then it might not have even been considered.

If we're programming something, then we know how to do compatibility.

But a lot of times these studios get orders to port, and port directly. Halo 2 PC still has no grenade starts on Backwash for example, because they were told to just port the game and get it working. They weren't given any directive or allowed "editorial" like Gearbox was for Halo PC.
