Re: I'll Take Those.

In Response To: Re: I'll Take Those. (Phoenix_9286)

: Nah, sorry. They weren't hard to pull off. Just simple map mods with Halo Map
: Tools. Load the map up, edit attributes, away you go. It let you do a lot
: of fun things. As another for instance, how about swapping the Warthogs on
: Silent Cartographer for Ghosts? Or Tanks? If memory serves, it was easy
: enough. Just load another map with a Ghost or a Tank on it, grab the tag
: for it, load Silent Cartographer, swap the Warthog tag with the Ghost or
: Tank tag.

: I think it worked that way. I could very much be mistaken and that method
: would only work if those vehicles were loaded with the map. It's been a
: really, really long time. That isn't to say it couldn't be done at all
: though, I seem to recall a LOT of crazy things were possible with Halo Map
: Tools and some extra editing on the side, I just never bothered to get
: that far into it. Doing goofy things with the guns was enough.

Also, forgot to mention that long ago when I softmodded my Xbox, you could get a lot of wild stuff for CE and Halo 2. Blood Gulch and Sidewinder at night. Wild plasma sniper rifle things with altered models, projectiles and sounds, a Sidewinder that had additional forts built along the cliffs and Snow Hogs (with treads!). Halo 2 had an altered bridge from Metropolis that let you fight several dozen Elites alongside several dozen Marines.

Pretty sure I still have all that stuff. Damned if I know how to break back into the Xbox to retrieve and share it (I think an FTP is involved), nevermind how I did it in the first place (pretty sure a Splinter Cell save hack was involved, and you needed a USB memory card reader, possibly negated if you can just FTP in). I'm also not sure any of this was ever that playable, just goofy, random, neat stuff that to my teenage mind was really cool.
