Either Major, Captain or LT will do.
A french magazine? How does that happen?
They contacted me through our website asking to be able to distribute our mod, we have also had some spanish magazine apparently do the same. I also had a interview with some french dude as well. I guess the french just like Lumoria :o
The French are awesome.
Have you or their lawyers discussed the legal issues of distribution? I'm not trying to cause a problem, since I think it's fantastic to see that your mod is getting media coverage, but I don't want anyone to be threatened by the suits. If shipping on a disc is too risky (it could be seen as the disc being sold with the magazine), you may be able to play it safe by them hosting the download files on their website that is referenced by a simple url in the article (such as jvn.com/lumoria).
If the base of the magazine's readers are French, you may want to consider seeking someone who can speak French for the dialogue, or at least create French subtitles for localization. Also, you should be able to rip the French main menu tags from the French version of Halo PC, if you're interested. I remember GAIGHER doing that with his maps.
If you want to update your post in the showcase thread with this news, I'll temporarily unlock it for you.
They are basically just including the mod (with a bunch others, no idea which ones) on their website and on a covermount for one of their magazines. I believe many others do this as well (for other mods). And yes, I know exactly what you mean by the disc being sold with the magazine. They also told me they have apparently done a few other Halo mods (he did not state which ones, but im assuming CMT)
Also we did not sign anything, and we simply told them this:
And then they told me it wasn't a problem, so I guess its fine.We, TM Mapping Team, are not familiar with the legal issues concerning distribution of custom content in Halo: Custom Edition. If you believe there is no legal issue in doing so, then we do indeed authorize you to distribute Project Lumoria: Episode One, our free campaign level. However, we will not be held responsible for any potential legal issues that may arise becuase of this.

Hey guys, I heard you like explosions (boom!), so Matt Dratt made a sick little teaser for you all :O
More to update later on tomorrow - I'm currently in the process of switching rooms with my brother, so I'm a bit busy and things are pretty disorganized on my end.
