Thread: Halo CE

  1. #1

    Halo CE

    I am trying to learn to mod< I cant' get hek to start, I can't figure it out haha, I just wanted to update a few things like weapons and graphics, nothing bit like textures for the map, I can't figure it out, say I wanted to put the halo reach sniper rifle with the sound and animation in it (lets say halo 3 actually) how would I do that? thanks, and any information about modeling and anything like that will help, thanks

    Re: Halo CE

    The pipeline is as follows.

    You have three tools that install in your CE directory when you install HEK.

    Guerilla - Used to edit tag files (Everything in the game is a tag file)
    Sapien - Used to place weapons, scenery, vehicles and other crap around scenario files (Scenarios are a preview of a .map file before compilation)
    Tool.xex - Used for conversion/compiling/random other stuff

    as well as 2 directories

    Data - Source files go here (jma or .jmo exported from max for animations and .tiff files for textures/bitmaps) before conversion through Tool to tags.
    Tags - "Tag" files go here.

    3DS Max or GMax will be necessary for importing models and animations. If this is not your preferred modeling software, you can import OBJs (Most 3D software will export to OBJ, it's a relatively universal format). Animations, as far as I know, will have to be done in one of the Max programs as I have not found a way to import animations from other programs.

    SO.

    Start small. I'll run you through the steps to make a weapon functionality modification (no change to the model/animations).

    1. Open Guerilla
    2. Open an existing Weapon tag (such as the sniper_rifle.weapon) located in CE directory > tags > weapons
    3. Modify Values
    4. Save Weapon as new tag (preferably in a separate folder for organizational purposes)
    5. Create a new Item_Collection tag and link it to the .weapon you just created, set weight to 100 and save it as a new item_collection
    6. Open tutorial.scenario through Sapien through tags > levels > test > tutorial
    7. Edit Types > Netgame Equipment > add Sniper Rifle item collection and close the Edit Tyoes
    7. Find "Netgame Equipment" in heirarchy view and highlight the folder
    8. Middle click (or right click, I forget which one) to place a new netgame equipment, set it to the new Sniper Rifle item collection
    9. Save scenario
    10. Open command prompt, point it to CE directory (Copying CMD.exe into CE directory and opening it will work too)
    11. Type "Tool Build-Cache-File Levels/Test/Tutorial/Tutorial" and press enter
    12. "Tutorial" should not appear in game with your modified weapon placed in the level.

    I have all that, plus hek plus, guerilla says "please set working directory" and I have looked for WEEKS on how to fix that, and I'm not kidding, almost 3 weeks now, and I can't figure out how to open hek, I don't see a hek.exe or anything, unless I messed something up lol

    Is that tag that you are opening in the tags directory?

    Re: Halo CE

    are you saying take a screen shot of my directory? or of my guerilla error? lol and I put the tags in my tags directory, I'm not sure what else to do, I DO know how to open tool.exe, I think, just drag it to the cmd line, but other than that, not sure, maybe I should start from scratch, and have yall walk me step by step (I'm from the consoles, this is so different)

    Re: Halo CE

    with tool, you need to copy and paste cmd.exe into the halo ce directory. When you open it, the first word should always be "tool"

    you can just type "tool" and then it gives you all the tool commands that you need to know.

    also, make sure UAC on windows is fully disabled, if I remember correctly that can mess with your tags and plenty of other things.

    the latter.

    as well as a screen of your CE root directory in windows explorer if possible (where you launch Geurilla from).

    Re: Halo CE

    I'm not seeing the original guerilla.exe in there so you may have to reinstall the HEK

    I haven't worked with OS so I don't know if os_guerilla.xex is supposed to completely replace it

    also you should just use a mini ISO from gamecopyworld and mount it rather than using a nocd crack
