  1. Upping the resolution on the lightmaps to achieve higher quality/cleaner/crisper shadows clashes horribly with Halo 1's low-poly aesthetic. This is tried over and over again and the first impressions are all wows and high fives but it never really feels right. Stick to just emulating exactly what the old lightmaps looked like, but rendered faster and open source.
  2. "REPORT: TUCKER DELETED 2.7 MILLION VOTES SITEWIDE. DATA ANALYSIS FINDS 221,000 OC VOTES SWITCHED FROM SKYRIM TO WARZONE. 941,000 L4D VOTES DELETED. USERS ON CHROME BROWSERS SWITCHED 435,000 VOTES FROM L4D TO WARZONE." This claim about election fraud is disputed.
  3. I haven't heard of nor experienced this before. Does it happen on all versions of Windows?
  4. That is the ugliest fucking thing I have ever seen.
  5. Cawww!
  6. Please shift away from CLI.
  7. Is that from incredibly cursed Halo?
  8. They're shortened URLs that generate revenue for the person who gets people to click them. I'm guessing they subject you to tons of advertisements before letting you proceed to the intended destinations. Very classy.
  9. Technically this is true. EAC violations are handled differently depending what game it is and what rule it thinks was broken. But generally EAC violations can lead to game bans on Steam, known as VAC bans. You can get false positives or argue that what happened was a mistake to get it reversed, but it's wise to assume the worst if you get flagged and avoid it at all costs. I enjoy the opportunity to make terrible but technically valid entries in contests. I saw a loophole in the guidelines and wanted to make something funny out of it. Hopefully it was filled with enough jokes to make it entertaining. If an admin wants to delete that thread, I wouldn't object. Thank you for selecting this one for the winner. I think this topic is something that is always glossed over without much explanation and it really shouldn't be when there are real consequences. Any suggestions for improvements will happily be implemented.
  10. Awesome, it works! Thank you- bounty transferred.
  11. Does anybody know of a Max Script or a program that can extract collision models? From a tag into 3ds Max. 1 ticket goes to the person who finds me what I need.
  12. I'm not running an executable file from somebody I don't trust. Can you share the files it installs?
  13. What does 'flight' mean?
  14. Please don't force external 3d modeling programs for radiosity. This would simply be a compromise of ease of use for an open source sticker. My experience with Aether and Open Sauce directional lightmaps was not pleasant. The results were often worse than what Halo could produce and at significantly more effort. Many of the lighting settings in modern 3d programs can be overwhelming compared to the simplicity of how Halo's tagging system allows you to automatically configure level lighting via object attachments, shader radiosity, and skyboxes. Too many lights would have to be manually placed and configured correctly. Extra steps of running multiple commands in plugins/scripts and using multiple programs is annoying as well. Unless you manage to produce a single step solution that automates this entire process, I hope you just find a way to mimic the tool lightmaps command.
  15. I'm pretty old school and like having desktop shortcuts over launching through the Steam library so this is a great solution. I have added that as the primary option.
