  4. Got introduced to this band via Comix Zone, came with a demo music cd inside the box.
  5. Sehe maintained his own repo of maps he considered "good" or "worthwhile". He refused to consider maps he didn't like for various reasons. When the HAC2 repo disappeared, there were no backups, and Btcc22 and Harbinger got Sehe to cough up his repo. I populated the new HAC2 repo with that list, and then started adding more maps as I caught failures in the logs. At certain points in time, I scraped the entire H3 website, or other places I could find map packs. Then, I got a huge dump of over 5000+ maps from mihirgates, of which over 2000 maps were unique. Now, we're at the point where the HAC2 repo has 5,687 maps for both PC and CE, including quite a few singleplayer maps as well. TA DA... always remember to back up your stuff, people...
  6. The flag tag is the banner that's attached to the flag weapon tag. This banner is basically a tessellated plane that is affected by wind and movement of the object.
  7. hi. could anyone tell me the use of the flag tag and how to change it please? I know how to add a different looking flag by swapping the weap tag, but I don't know about the flag tag. Thanks you.
  8. Last week
  9. Asassin's Creed Unity is free on Uplay until April 25th.
  10. It no longer does since he killed off his website, guess he was hosting his own repo or a mirror that fed off of hac2's? map_query snow Sapp is not connected to the global server! Please try again later. or map_query snow Map query request sent. Select an ID from below: No map matches this expression!
  11. Cool! Does SAPP's map downloader not work?
  12. Took a look at giraffe's geolocation script and though, hey I can make a map downloader that uses the HAC2 Repo with that. This does require the use of wget as well as 7zip. Just like giraffe's script, this one requires that they need to be in the same folder as the dedicated server executable. Pastebin: https://pastebin.com/kdEH3nyB Github: https://github.com/it300/Halo-Lua/blob/master/map_download.lua 7zip_and_wget.zip Search for available maps @ http://maps.halonet.net/maplist.php Commands: map_download <map_name> map_download.map <URL> <map_name.map> map_download.zip <URL> <map_name> repo <url or legacy> Oh yeah since I just added map_download.zip <URL> <map_name>, a side note is that you can use .7z, .rar, or any format 7zip supports for decompression, I think? Also the map_name is only required to also have SAPP load map into the game.
  13. To increase upload speed from 2mbps to approx 40mbps
  14. Hi. I've imported two scenery tags that aren't behaving the same as the ones already on the map. They are both bushes/plants. The issue with the first is that the leaves disappear at a certain distance, but it's branches/stems stay the same at any distance. So they look nice and dense up close, but at distance they look bare and dead. The issue with the second is that it appears to have a shiny stem/trunk "shiny" on one side but not the other. The map has a night time setting so this looks weird compared to the other plants and trees as they are equally reflective from 360 degrees. I've looked at the bitmap preview and it is flat with no painted in shininess, so I think it must be something to do with lightmap or shaders, but I can't find the right thing to adjust/change. Thank you.
  15. So it was brought to my attention about a month ago that people were using HAC2 and Chimera (-572 and its derivatives, including mine) to cheat by setting their tickrate to 31-35 (30 = default, 36 and above and Halo's built in speed_hack_detection kicks in and ignores packets.) Today an idea popped in my head about a memory location I abused in the past to freeze players, checked the area around and sure enough, a counter that well, counts the number of updates it gets from the client, and my anti-speedhack was born. https://github.com/it300/Halo-Lua/blob/master/anti-speedhack.lua
  16. Game of Thrones season 8.
  17. @ScenyAin't nobody got time for dat. 8 will be fine. Thank you again for your help and this time for also confirming I wasn't going completely crazy not being able to find the float.
  18. This is the quality content I've come to expect from this site. 21/10
  19. If the ammo meter only has 8 bullets, you'll need to create a 12 bullet meter to replace it.
  20. Due to popular demand from no one, here's the port of Drunk Tank from HPC. The map is just Chiron, where everyone has only the Incendiary Shotgun and Rod Pistol from Phoenix ..oh and everyone's 100% invisible (guns visible in FP). Best played as FFA, with alcohol, and without motion sensors. Download
  21. Earlier
  22. Ya'll found my wallet.
  23. Just submitted my acceptance for a casual position I've been offered at the up coming Election in May. It's a 7 am start until all votes are counted at the end of the day (late night) Damn good pay comes with it
  24. Hi. I have a magnum tag which I have increased the loaded total on from 8 to 12 rounds, but the weapon HUD still only shows a maximum of 8 bullet icons. I can't find the float to align it, does anyone know which one it is please? Something in the whpi tag I assume, but I can't find it. thankyou.
  25. @giraffe @Kavawuvi thank you both very much. It was the Rider Damage Fraction value in the vehi tag I was looking for.
  26. If you mean how much damage occupants take, check out the value @giraffe mentioned. If you mean how much damage a vehicle can take before exploding, the singleplayer Banshee, Ghost, and Wraith use health. When that runs out, all occupants in the vehicle die and the appropriate effect from the collision model is played. You *can* use shield for this, too, which can be useful if you want the vehicle to have recharging health, but that's more work, especially when you're not using the Halo Editing Kit and you have to compute some of the hidden values in the collision model for that.
