Proof of concept: Playing on a HaloCE server in HaloPC/HaloMD

The bugs have been ironed out and now the bridge is completely working. The next step is to merge the HaloCE/HaloPC/HaloMD lobby and handle the map downloading code in an MD plugin. The PC version should follow pretty closely.

Halo CE's lobby on HaloMD

 

 

All of the servers are joinable thanks to Samuco's plugin. HaloMD's ui.map has the Internet join game button removed, so I'm using Halo CE's stock ui.map, instead.

 

Also, this list is generated in less than a couple seconds.

Can you make a dedicate.exe mod that allows the servers to broadcast onto both versions of Halo and let both join?  Cause that would be cool.

Forgive the necrobump, but was any progress made on this? a unified server list might help keep all three dying fanbases together.

It was completed soon after this topic was made. This community doesn't cater to HaloMD users, however, so no follow-up post was made here. Check this topic here: http://www.macgamingmods.com/forum/viewtopic.php?f=101&t=20872

 

It's HaloMD only, so only Mac users are going to benefit from it (since they don't get Custom Edition, anyway). I'd recommend just installing Halo Custom Edition if you're on a Windows-based PC.

It would be nice to have to only need one game and reunite the server list though.

Of course it would. People should be on the better version of Halo, Custom Edition, if they're playing Halo PC.
 

Having people on the retail version of Halo able to join Custom Edition servers would not solve anything, because they wouldn't be able to play Custom Edition maps. In essence, you'd be taking away the point of Custom Edition. You could give Halo PC users the ability to play Custom Edition maps like I did with HaloMD users, but this would require user intervention - downloading a DLL file. If they're going to download anything, they should just download Halo Custom Edition.

Shame that despite CE being a thing the list is like 98% of stockmaps played by hispanics with 300+ ping. Has anyone tried to circulate or maybe even talk to the server owners to inject a custom map or two into the rotation? Get them hooked on anything other than slayer on bloodgulch with infinite ammo?
