  1. SNES Classic I picked up the last one from the Target nearby
  2. Yeah, this is an issue with the Mac version. The chat buffer is limited to only three or so messages at once. Fortunately, it is easily correctable in just a few steps: Download the Windows 10 ISO: https://www.microsoft.com/software-download/windows10 Run the Boot Camp tool. It will take care of partitioning as well as copying the ISO contents onto your USB drive. Restart your Mac, holding down the option key, and select your USB drive. Install Windows 10. The installation process is simple: click Next a few times. Be sure you select the correct partition so you don't nuke your macOS installation. Update Windows 10. This will install all necessary drivers. You could also use the drivers given to you by Boot Camp, but this is probably unnecessary as you're updating anyway. Install Halo Custom Edition. You can obtain it here: You may also need to install msxml to see chat. I also recommend installing HAC2 which you can find in that topic. If you follow these steps correctly, you will be able to see more chat messages at once, and you will still be on a Mac. In seriousness, though, the chat thing isn't fixable with anything SAPP can do, so the Mac user may want to use rcon, instead. Use sapp_rcon to restrict the rcon to admins (and their admin levels).
  3. Could you upload your script? There are many different zombies scripts out there. Also, I moved this topic to SAPP. The Questions & Suggestions section is for site-related questions.
  4. Okay sure. So let's say that... gdonut.exe's path is C:\Users\SomeUser\Downloads\gdonut.exe Your original map is located at C:\Program Files (x86)\Microsoft Games\Halo Custom Edition\maps\bigass.map Your modified map is located at C:\Program Files (x86)\Microsoft Games\Halo Custom Edition\maps\bigass - modified.map You want your lua script to be saved in C:\Users\SomeUser\Desktop\script.lua Then this is what you would put in your command line: C:\Users\SomeUser\Downloads\gdonut.exe "C:\Program Files (x86)\Microsoft Games\Halo Custom Edition\maps\bigass.map" "C:\Program Files (x86)\Microsoft Games\Halo Custom Edition\maps\bigass - modified.map" "C:\Users\SomeUser\Desktop\script.lua" If you want to save a lot of typing, you can also drag files into the command prompt window, and it will automatically enter the path for you.
  5. I'd recommend asking @aLTis if you need help with his map. Otherwise, you could try swapping it in Eschaton. You'll find it in the globals tag. Then use Glazed Doughnut on the new map and the original map to create a script.
  6. Wherever he is (whether that's heaven or simply nowhere), at least he's no longer struggling with ALS. That living hell is gone, now. The world sadly lost one of its greatest minds, though.

  8. Professor Stephen Hawking, who died today aged 76, is being remembered for his colossal achievements in astrophysics - and for defying the odds to live a long and incredible life. Source
  9. I bought a laptop! Specs: CPU/iGPU: AMD Ryzen 5 2500U (4C/8T @ 2.00 GHz; 3.6 GHz boost) | AMD Radeon Vega 8 RAM: 16 GB DDR4 @ 2400 MHz SSD: 256 GB It's certainly not a gaming laptop, but here is the iGPU's specs for anyone interested: Compute units: 8 Frequency: 300 MHz base; 1100 MHz boost Stream processors (CUs x 64): 512 TMUs (CUs x 4): 32 ROPs: 16 GFLOPs (stream processors x frequency [GHz] x 2): 1126.4 For comparison, the Xbox One GPU has 12 compute units @ 853 MHz, or 1310.2 GFLOPs. This is only 16% more compute performance than my laptop's integrated graphics.
  10. Happy not quite birthday!
  11. I will also be awarding a bonus raffle ticket to anyone who submits a map that makes good use of Chimera's Lua scripting. Presently, SAPP does not support Chimera's Lua scripting, so if you do something that is not a visual effect, you will need to either make it single player or make an equivalent SAPP script. Here are the requirements: Lua script must enhance visuals or gameplay Map must be submitted and accepted into the 2018 Map Competition and adhere to all 2018 Map Competition guidelines Map must work with Chimera build -560. Note that build -3XX Lua scripting is different from -5XX Lua scripting and will not work If the map is a multiplayer map, the map must work on a SAPP server (you may make a SAPP script, if necessary) Only one (1) ticket maximum per entrant
  12. Oh yeah, I fixed this five days ago. The build with the fix is on the Chimera Discord. I'll also post it here: chimera_build_-560.7z I'll be posting another build with lots more features sometime within the next day or two.
  13. I may consider changing my name (and profile photo) on this site, as everyone outside of here knows me as Kavawuvi.


    Is everyone okay with this? I don't want to cause any confusion.

      It'll be the dawn of a new age. We'll have to make sacrifices, some of them potentially being live ones, but I think we'll pull through.

      Maybe we could sacrifice one of the HaloMD players?

      It is done! I am now a duck.

  14. It's only the hash that's being publicized, not the key itself. If it was a legitimate key, you wouldn't be able to steal it in any reasonable way. If it's not a legitimate key, well, that's your fault for pirating the game. However, client IP addresses should not be publicly shown. Any server administrator should know better. As such, I've obfuscated the CD hashes and IP addresses in the post.
  15. Here is a new build of Chimera, build -556. From build -552, there are two new commands: New command: chimera_block_mouse_acceleration. This allows you to toggle Halo's mouse acceleration. New command: chimera_mouse_sensitivity. This allows you to override the horizontal and vertical sensitivity of mouse movement. There are also some miscellaneous changes: The Chimera build number and Lua API versions are shown in a separate color in the chimera command to make them stand out The simple score screen command has been updated a little bit for slightly better positions. You can also see your placement in the scores (1st, 2nd, 3rd, etc.) There is some new documentation which will be enclosed in all full updates (e.g. build 50, 51, etc.) https://docs.google.com/document/d/1OmkwbJTLmuVEqJGTtkLlbRpbdZ_QBHoj86MzC7mXM_g/edit The author in the DLL was changed from 002 to Kavawuvi. Kavawuvi is the name I primarily use outside of Open Carnage, so don't worry, I'm still developing it. Download (build -556): chimera_build_-556.7z
