    Lightbulb [PATCH] H2MT - Main Menu Mod = Halo 2.5 Map Support

    presents the

    MainMenu Mod aka MMM

    Version: Public Beta 0.5
    02|29|2012

    ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

    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
    directory.

    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

    ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~


    INSTALLATION:

    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:
    Patch.sppf

    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.


    ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~


    HOSTING:

    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.


    ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~


    QUESTIONS & ANSWERS:

    Q. Can I undo the changes that the patch makes at a later date?

    A. Yes, our improved patcher makes a backup.


    ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~



    NEW VEHICLES LIST:

    Gravity Ghost - Grey skin, weapon replaced with Gravity Lift shot

    That's a pretty good release. I just might check it out the next time I feel like installing H2V.

    I tried to add more slots like neodos did for H2X,
    Click image for larger version

Name:	mapslots..png
Views:	129
Size:	169.5 KB
ID:	1737

    I cloned that many slots, and then adjusted the block count, am I missing something else?
    I tried adding 1000, 50 etc, they all bork! the game. D:

    If I had Neodos' original patch I could learn from it, but neither he or his patch are available anywhere.

    That's really cool.

    Too bad that the situation in H2V is similar to HCE now: About 20% of players have custom maps installed because most players can't be arsed to download custom maps, and like 10% of these players actually play on custom maps/want to play on custom maps.
    Now IDK how many people want to not only download the maps but the patch too...

    I'm not saying that it's not worth it though!

    This is tempting me to buy this game, assuming you could have most of the CE maps, that would be pretty sweet. (Timberland, Ice Fields, Tensity and Snow Grove in mind.)
