Just like the title says I'm new here, an I would like to start moding the map BloodGulch on the Halo Demo. Can some one please link me to some programs and toutorials to help me get started.
Also can any one tell me what language the maps are programed in. C++ maybe?
Thanks, Zachary Redmon (Zachary940)
first off you don't need to reprogram anything you should try Jackles Modding Guide 4.0 Jackle's Modding Guide, Halo 2 Downloads, Halo 2 Halo PC it'll get you started and a neat tip to get you started off good under the bitmap tag in hmt copy the meta of levels\a10\bitmaps\cryo glass and paste it over anything you want to be invisible (you'll know what it means after reading the guide)
oh and also You need the ppf o matic: [COLOR=blue]http://halo2.filefront.com/file/PPFOMatic;24225[/COLOR] and these two ppfs: [COLOR=blue]http://files.filefront.com/yourmama_undo_sparkifyzip/;6903230;/fileinfo.html[/COLOR]
you need to apply the 'sparkify' ppf before you mod and apply 'desparkify' after you mod so you can play and if you want a cool trial mod tyr this out Bloodpac, Halo 2 Downloads, Halo 2 Map Mods i did it when i was first starting out
Ok thanks for your help. I got the weapon swaping and that kind of stuff down. Perty easy. I want to actually add stuff to the map. An exaple would be a sky base or something. I downloaded sparkedit and every time I try to open the map it wont come up. No error mesges or anything. At the bottum in the command box thing it says thats its retriving tags or something. Did I screw up or is my comp just stupid?
did you use the sparkify patch? the map might also be corrupted try turning down the settings in the options (in sparkedit) or you might have to reinstall (halo) i am not sure, i haven't encountered that error before also, did you try the invisable vehicles thing?
I did not use the patch. I have thought about it and relized that I should be doing something with these PPF files. What do I do with them. Maybe that will solve it?
I did not make any vehicles invisable but I did make the rocket worthog fly and the banshee hover. Made both home in on there targets. Made a assult rifle shoot needls. Narrowed the pattren of fire on the needler and assult rifle. Other fun stuff like that.
ok perfect! that's an easy problem to solve! make sure you have the ppf o'mattic then open it click the floppy disk ico next to 'iso file' and select your bloodgulch.map then click the icon next to patch and select HT-BG-Sparkify.ppf(its one of the ppf's in the "sparkedit_trial ppf" you downloaded click apply then mod after do everything you already did but instead of using HT-BG-Sparkify.ppf use HT-BG-de-Sparkify.ppf
ok, I got a problem and can't get it fixed for nothin, I'm trying to create mods using sparkedit and i'm sparkifying and de sparkifiying each time but my vehicles still aren't coming up when I try to test the mod out. Any Help, pls reply.
That's probably because your gametype doesn't support the amount of vehicles you have placed. Couldn't you create your own thread instead of reviving one from July?
