Halo Custom Edition the FREE Download that makes Halo SOOOOO Much Better!!!

[b][i]Note: I take no credit for originally typing all this. Chewy Gumball posted this a long time ago, and all credit goes to him. However, with his permission, I have taken over the task of maintaing this thread (which unfortunately got deleted in the hacking spree). So if you have any questions, please feel free to ask me.[/i][/b] Halo CE is a free download that you can get [url=http://hce.halomaps.org/index.cfm?pg=3&fid=410]here[/url]. It improves the netcode for halo from being crappy to uh... better than crappy. The MarD can do better justice to that than me. It also, and this is the big one, allows you to *sudden silence* use user created maps!!!! YAY WOO HOO!!! Finaly. If you don't have CE then you should get it. It is exactly like Halo PC in every way except CE is multiplayer only. You need to have PC to use CE though. There is a definate lack in players for CE so that is what this thread is for. CE is a different application, so you can still use the regular Halo PC. When you download maps, you will have to unzip them (use WinRAR found [url=http://www.download.com/WinRAR/3000-2250_4-10350955.html]here[/url]) then put them into the CE maps folder. These are some of my favourite user created maps on Halo CE: [b][url=http://hce.halomaps.org/index.cfm?pg=3&fid=1153]H2_Zanzibar[/url][/b] [b][url=http://hce.halomaps.org/index.cfm?pg=3&fid=1154]H2_New Mombassa[/url][/b] [b][url=http://halo.msmcs.net/modules.php?op=modload&name=Downlo ads&file=index&req=viewdownload&cid=2&min=20&orderby=titleA&s how=20]W4rtorn Cove[/url][/b] (not Wartorn Cove although those also are used alot) [b][url=http://hce.halomaps.org/index.cfm?pg=3&fid=934]Launch Bay X[/url][/b] There is currently a team working on Halo 2 maps complete with new weapons and gametypes so if you want to play Halo 2 but don't/can't buy an Xbox, this is the game for you. H2_Zanzibar and H2_New_Mombassa are some of their creations and more is on the way. New Mombassa is a HUGE maps and is better with more than 4 people, preferably 8. To play user created maps online you must first download them and put them in your maps folder, otherwise you won't be able to connect. You can find alot of other maps fome these sites: Halomaps.co.uk - RIP [b][url=http://hce.halomaps.org]HaloMaps.org[/url][/b] - Over 400 maps and counting!

I have found it to be more challenging than PC multiplayer but don't let that deter you. If you have maps that you think need adding to the list or have something else to add please post. If you need more information on Halo CE please check out [url=http://www.bungie.net/Forums/posts.aspx?postID=2541611]this post[/url] made by Ignite. If you have any other projects that look good, please post them. NOTICE: Halo CE is PC only, there is no Mac version right now. [url=http://hce.halomaps.org/index.cfm?nid=313]This[/url] is a guide on how to install maps. Please read this before asking questions. I will not tell you how to mod maps, if you wish to learn please go to The [url=http://gbxforums.gearboxsoftware.com/forumdisplay.php?f=10]Gearbox Forums[/url] and ask questions. I would advise you to download the [b]Halo Editing Kit (HEK)[/b] from [url=http://hce.halomaps.org]halomaps.org[/url] and do the tutorial before posting any questions as people will just tell you to do that anyway. If your question is answered in this post, I will not reply to you. Please read it all before asking a question. [Edited on 07.10.2007 3:19 PM PDT]

  • Are there any servers that actually have decent playable ping though? I sure couldn't find any. I'd like to give Halo PC a chance because people actually play fun game types. Not rockets, brute shot and swords like all the games for H2V seem to be.

  • [quote][b]Posted by:[/b] SpriteSpartan159 yo, custom edition is better but guess what?? In the costum edition, not as much people play, almost every server has 0/16 people[/quote] [url=http://i166.photobucket.com/albums/u119/ProgramLog/Halocelots.jpg?t=1188841485] yo! [/url] Go to filters -select to not show empty servers. There's actually 304 people playing if you select it to show User Created maps that you don't have installed.

  • [quote][b]Posted by:[/b] Der Kinderslager I'll help in this becoming a sticky by posting every once in a while. Oh and by the way, my C4 switching days are over. Well, it was more like "day" but... I just got bored. Then I remembered about how once, some guy was c4 switching the other team, and I tried it, and it was strangely amusing to see people shout, "WTF?! H4XORZ!!!!". So, everyone who knew me as [SWSL] Nick, I won't C4 switch ever again. I'll play the game the way it was meant to be played. And now, let the flaming of me begin![/quote]We don't care if you C4 switch, it's the map creator's stupid damned fault that he made such an imbalanced map.
