      To solve the "toolbeta.map" problem , just do the following: Heres what you do:

      1. open notepad

      2. do not type anything.

      3. save it to your desktop with anyname.txt

      4. rename it to : toolbeta.map

      5. move this file "toolbeta.map" to your the C:\Program Files\Microsoft Games\Halo Custom Edition folder.

      next time you compile your map you won't see that message.

      bingo. gone with the wind. Message is now gone forever.

      [size=1]--- Original message by: Spartan314[/size=1]What is toolbeta.map and where has it gone?
      It's a development map for the development of Tool in the HEK and it is no longer needed because Tool is "finished" and self-contained. If it still exists, it's on some secret backup archive on some hidden Microsoft Game Studios backup server and probably also somewhere on some Gearbox server.
