MainMenu Mod aka MMM
Version: Public Beta 0.5
This is updated Public Beta release of the MainMenu Mod.
The MainMenu Mod (or MMM) allows us to load new custom multiplayer maps
from the Default Map Menu which allows us to load custom vehicles and HUDs,
among other things. The MMM is also referred to as a patch.
The new maps are referred to as Halo 2.5 maps or H2.5. These maps must be
manually downloaded through your web browser and placed in your Default Maps
Just the MMM Patch
90.8KBs (~367KBs extracted)
In the future we hope to add support for in-game downloading be it through Halo 2
or with the aid of an external Map Manager.
The current patch supports ten new map Slots and now includes access to Campaign
maps from the Multiplayer Menu.
Slot1 - H2.5 Coag Redux
Slot2 - H2.5 Sandtrap
Slot3 - H2.5 Vertigo 4
Slot4 - H2.5 Holidays Grave
1) Extract the contents of the MainMenu Mod archive.
2) Open the application called H2.5 MainMenu Mod Patcher (you may need to
right -click it and select Run as administrator if you have UAC enabled).
3) Click the browse button where it says Patch File, then select the file:
Click Apply Patch. Done with patching.
4) Download and place one of the H2.5 maps into the same folder as your patched mainmenu.map:
C:\Program Files\Microsoft Games\Halo 2\maps (the install location for Halo 2)
Thats it! Now load the new maps from the Default Menu (not the custom one) by
selecting the correctly named Slot.
To play locally, after you have acquired an H2.5 modified map, go to the Multiplayer
Map Menu and select the correctly named Slot.
To host the H2.5 maps online the other players DO NOT require the MMM however
they do need to have the maps in their Default folder.
