Well its like this. I am a seasoned Halo PC player, and am not realy into multiplayer online. However, I am a bit bored of playing 1v1 on LAN. Its a bit dull but hey ho. The point it that I am planning on making multiplayer maps that has AI where the AI are in the game, in the form of the campain levels. I plan to do it along the same lines as Madness. What I need to know is: 1) The difficulty of the AI (personal prefference is heroic) 2) If anyne else likes the idea 3) If I should include H2 weapons, or skins or anything 4) general ideas It should keep me occupied untill H2V. Feedback in general wold be nice
Hope you can make a smart A.I.I think you should have halo 2 weapons and vehicles,skins arent that important but meh.
This is an impossible project due to Halo CE's netcode. AI do not sync online, leaving the non-host with invisible AI and fake AI and usually instant death. Now i know your thinking of maps like area 54, but i point out it had the same problem, leaving the non-hosts laggy and dying every so often
But what about LAN. LAN was what I was designing it for
even on lan, the ai syncing still doesnt work.... hopefully this will be fixed for h2 vista... but until then no1 can do co-op outside of the xbox halos =/
You should make like a mission instead of co-op, perhaps like Counter strike, or one where you need to take 3 people in a hog somewhere, stuff like that.
maybe what you could do is use the CE campaign and tweak it to where online support works.

That's cool but everyone has done that for hours I'm sure...a new custom one would be a lot better
The better question is will Halo 3 have co-op
In the future, please This topic has been heavily talked about already. Its already been established AI DO NOT work in multiplayer for all playing and cinema scenes suffer the same problem.
