>What is this?
The leaked version of Halo: Online, released early for testing in Russia; it is roughly similar to Halo 3. Our top scientists are currently working on reverse-engineering it so that, with what little information they have, they can enable private-server multiplayer. While you can't play multiplayer yet (as of this post), It is in the works, cant do it yet - the most you can do is load maps and run around with yourself. However, you can do plenty to mess around with in the files in the meantime as progress is made.

Remember, microsoft is monitoring these threads, so be on your best behavior.
I hope no one ever changes the blyat signs.
It gives me atmosphere. A dystopian space marine atmosphere of russian cock fighting. Using spartans.
Don't front, it's my lore. I'll do what I want with it.

Reshilling my archive one last time. Noone uploaded a archive containing all the shit you need to run the game without spending 30 minutes figuring everything out. I decided to do that for you.
>modded .exe for English and weapons modding
All you gotta do now is download the game, extract everything to the folder and you're now up-to-date.
Thanks for Halo on PC Microsoft, I've been waiting for this a long time.
But I won't be paying anything for it and you can suck my dick!
where's my fourty-mike-mike?
and my brute plasma rifle?
and my scarab gun?
All menu music here for those that missed it. Also added one that I missed in the last thread.
That's awesome. Can you add the OP to it? I'd love to see that get posted upcoming threads for the OPs. If we don't have someone dedicated to starting new threads, then we'll just have to hope each thread stays current with their opening.
We're still looking for players in our Halo 2 PC games! Add my tag 'sndrec32' if you wanna play.
I will give head to anyone who can shoot down a sentinel with a rocket launcher.
Make it into a webbum
does anyone have a screenshot of one of the new scopeless DNR/BR? or even better, a screenshot of aiming with those things?
where did the pastebin with the map list come from?
it is a magnet turrent
it´s the second one in OPs post
most people are up to 80%, so not long untill the great seeding begins
having shitty internet is fucking awful
have you tried it out?
the first 5 rounds shoot faster, WAY FASTER, then the follow up shots

Just read the readme. You are a sweetie

but I really like it

Guys there's centered crosshairs in Halo, you just need to mod it in. All vehicle crosshairs are centered, and so is the crosshair for when you have no weapon.
Not so stupid way of giving you a wider FoV up rather than down. There are many things coming from above: flying vehicles, grenades, some vehicle attacks shooting in an arc... and not much on ground level.
Because console games all have shit FoV, so what is easy to do on PC requires specific tweaks on console.
If your k/d is not at least better than this then you were trash. Pic related, my original account's k/d, in which Halo 3 was my first real online Halo game (and 2nd online game played after Halo 2 which I played casually for a few months) where I also played ranked with friends, who were mostly shitters and solo-q'd the majority of matches. Post k/ds and laugh/get laughed at.
Shit, that picture is the exact reason why I want Halo on PC.
>proper vehicle physics
>objective game modes
>actual team play
Three things no other game managed to get as right as Halo did. Because the Warthog is the embodiment of all three.
Our group is done playing Halo 2 for tonight - someone else can start hosting games if they like, but I'm headin to bed!
Thanks to everyone who came out to play.

how do I get to load the other maps?

man he got so fat, he was skinny only for a short while.
sounds about right. I mean halo:reach butchered the story anyway, but at least the gameplay was marginal. Halo 4 killed both story and gameplay.
One of my old Reach screenshots.
How do I see all of my files for the game? It only shows the top files on my file share, not all the images I took.

The only build we have is from March 20th.
I loved using the EVA helmet.
Same, seems to be a lot of RTTI info and other debug stuff tho
Nah not yet, there's a small dumper at https://github.com/Shockfire/HaloOnlineTagDumper that gives you offset/sizes of tags, but nothing to extract from it
Wish there was since it would make editing this AS3 code a lot easier
And we'll be playing this in the next 6 years, and you won't because Microsoft will have shutdown the servers for the release of the new remastered edition for the Xbox Two
When will you fags learn?
Yeah, that's helpful at least. I've been trying to find the function that writes text into the killfeed/game information area and it's been a bitch. I'm already able to give weapons, just having that function would make it a bit "cleaner" because I could write there "x weapon given." in there, making it look all professional and shit.
Having that pdb would make doing this literally a 10 second job.
post spartans, I need to see if anyone shared my colour scheme

Why is Halo so awesome?
Loved fucking around with the glitches, some of the best moments on halo were just messing around in forge with buds
there's just some magic to it isn't there?
I used this for a short while. I thought of it as like desert equipment.
>calling this shit halo 3
It's not halo 3 though is it? Sprint makes it not even similar. You faggots don't realise how much sprint changes how a halo game works. Also all the amazing sounds and visual style of the original is gone. As well as forge.
was always nice seeing a fellow desertbro, there was too many players with black armor and a bright secondary like red or yellow
here's that reply you wanted
That's not what I said though is it? Sprint completely changes halo, just ask any long time fan. This won't be anywhere near as good as halo 3, they should have just ported the original to steam.
>you will never see what resides in d:\Projects\
First of all, this was only for Russians
Second, when we have private servers, there'll be some that are just like vanilla Halo 3 for autists like you.
I for one would at least like to see how sprinting changes the game before I just dismiss it
>calling me an idiot
So are you just using random words istead of actually stating a reason you disagree with me? Are you just a PC user in denial or a 343 apologist?
does anyone remember the secret room on orbital? you had to so some serious teleglitching or turret pushing, but once you were in there you could take some sweet-ass pictures because it fucked the camera up.
I don't even know the explanation for it, like there was some leftover post-processing volume in there.
>mustards break code
>they create private servers
>microsoft sees nobody downloads game and stops supporting pc platform therefore pc never gets halo 5
you maniacs stop it!
dude, sprinting can be modded out, it's only been a short while since it was leaked and look what's been done aleady, haven't you heard about the cash shot? renting weapons? pay to win?
Nobody is actually going to play halo online, just the new custom edition that modders put together.
>look at all this 4chan meme terminology I've learned! I'll really fit in if I use it over and over!
You realise you are literally not making sense don't you? Using random phrases like this again and again makes you look like a fucking retard. We were all new once I guess though
Honestly why are Microsoft fucking around with this? A fucking Russia only F2P game with everything as microtransactions? The fuck?
They would make a lot more money by just releasing a full fucking game at a paid price with no stupid bullshit.
yeah but giving us Halo 3 (with assets from Reach and 4 like sprinting and assassinations) and modding wouldn't give us much of an incentive to buy an Xbox One. They'd lose a lot of money releasing it to us as well
>buy our unchangeable custom game modes only $5 a piece!
>obviously crude parodies of community custom games with names as if they were imitated by a caveman
tfw I don't have any funny names to add to my post because I don't even play halo online
get eldorito and put god on also get this mod to disable boundrys on the map
personally i has mine with increased jump , good to explore anon
>xbox team sees this
>they inform based phil about all the passion and interest we're showing
>instead of shutting us down he understands we can help them instead
>they organize a bigger testing/feature feedback operation to release the game in more countries
>we make Halo 3 PC a reality
what if, anons
yeah reach was pretty fun, I actually liked some armor upgrades, dodge rolling made swordfights fuckin rad.
reach lacked a couple of nice things 3 had, like alpha zombies, those powerups like grav lifts and bubble shields, and working teleporters.
did anyone else get pissed off at how to teleporters got fucked up in multiplayer? you could set them up nicely in forge and make sure all the directions worked properly, and when you opened the map in multiplayer everyone but the host would be facing the wrong direction when coming out of a tele exit. kinda ruined how great they would have been due to the fact you could change what was allowed through them, and how big they were.
>tfw had an xbox 360 with halo on it when it first came out but didn't have wifi on my shitty internet and couldn't wire it either since internet was too shit
>tfw never got to enjoy god tier halo 3 mp
I-I didn't miss much right anons?
Pretty positive Halo 2 Xbox had completely new maps and models and all that shit, and that never had a creation kit. If it got that far on Xbox, then it will go much, much farther on PC.
Just directly porting Halo 3 to PC would fucking print money. It's a pretty old game at this point, so even shittier PCs could run it, giving it lots of availability for people.
The Xbone is basically a shitty PC anyway, it's very possible
>Infection: Alpha Zombies on Sword Base
I want this guy to have a name. My vote is on Headless Ponch
a man can dream, anon
alpha zombies? but reach didn't have an alpha zombie option in custom games, right? or have I been wrong all this time.
Anyone else remember the guardians glitch in halo 2? I dont think there was ever anything better.
>Charge two plasma pistols
>Fire them both and melee at the same time
>your other weapons bullets now come from the fucking SKY and whoever you kill, it tells them they were killed by the guardians
Nothing was funnier than watching random people rage over the fact that they just appeared to be sniped by god
The way pawns work apparently meant dragon's dogma would use immense amounts of cloud storage in an attempt to make pawns tamper-proof, or people would store their pawns on their own computer, and then people would just edit their pawn's stats there instead.
Basically their excuse is that they were too lazy to devise an anti-cheat system, as far as I'm aware.
>Some kid wants to play hunger games
>Brace for incoming half hour of shit

So I tried to make an AR "guide"
to the namefag who is making the "nifty guide"
if you want to thank me, just thank MaksyBeat
to all the anons, who are downloading my HaloOnline.zip, seed is 99,5%
enjoy playing Halo, but please read the INSTALLATION GUIDE.txt
It's actually make sense economic wise. Cos here in russia most people play f2p games like dota, WoT, war thunder etc. And the some of them actually spending money ingame. So fuck you, muriclap.
>I never played Duck Hunt.
What is it with Russians and automatically assuming everyone who isn't Russian is American? Seriously, I live in Finland and whenever I play CSGO and say a word of English the retarded Russians just scream ''SHUT UP AMERICANSKI''
he's talkin bout the fucking EVA helmet noob
haven't played reach regularly in ages, I remember scouring the custom games rules for an alpha zombie option, but could never find one.
fuck man, there's too many amazing custom games it's hard to pick
>Halo on Halo
>Ghostbusters on Hide/seek town
>TANK on Rat's Nest
>Ice cream man on Kiddie Lane
>Baddies creep up on bus stop kids
I'm sure I'm forgetting a few, I can't wait to recreate them when this gets sorted out by based modders
to the anons, who donloaded my shit
Can confirm Russia lurking and downloading /v/ mods
>i can finally sell my 360 and all my games
Well, I'd keep it for ODST, but Halo online on PC will be more than enough to wait until proper 360 emulation.
> my HaloOnline.zip
pls seed for other anons
give me feedback if it works
So fucking what?
That pisses me off anon. Sometimes in online games I even get that, "Stop playing an American game you kangaroo fucker!"
It is the fucking stupidest shit to say. It is not exclusive to one country who made it.
Went to Singapore recently to. The fucking asians over there kept yelling out to me 'We got American Hot dogs! American hot dogs here!" as I walked past. Every white person is a ameritard apparently...
It, along with a whole host of other options got added in with a title update.
And then there's SvE Mythic Slayer which just blows the whole wide open.
I could never get my skill up that 1 fucking point
Honestly Forge World just had a really shitty atmosphere compared to Foundry. Foundry with its dirty and scary look along with its creepy ambient noise really helped out the maps made in it.
I've been photo fag in all of these Halo threads
> fat kid on foundry
C'MON why are you guys not releasing a public build? muh secret irc, don't be a jackass.
Cos you clearly don't know what outsourcing is and why it cheaper, to hire some ruskies to programe it for vodka. So I assumed that you are from murica, and
>shitty F2P Russian dev
Yeah, you're not aggressive at all.
University network, I need to verify my age with IT support, but I've applied for a job there, and because 4chan is a goldmine of adult content, it's not something I want to risk.
Seedbox is banned from posting because proxy
so why does that make you have to take pictures of your monitor instead of using snipping tool
also, i have an ssh tunnel set up to my home router running tomato at work and this does a great job of bypassing the corporate firewall, but it took me quite a while to work all the kinks out (like a month of on-and-off work on it)
There were a lot of zombie maps with doors that you could move by hitting. I can't remember how they were made but they were fucking awesome. I think one part of them was using window sills to make sure the object used as the door didn't slide out of place.
Oh my god you are still going at it? Just give up already. You will never get this off the ground and running. Just buy a damn Xbox if you want to play Halo that badly holy fuck.
Putting too much effort into a post it not justifiable
I can set up an ssh easy, I'm ssh into the seedbox to browse 4chan, but it's not allowed to post.
Seeing as I live on campus, getting a machine set up outside campus is a different story
Actually, I doubt it'll ever happen.
First, emulators aren't a nice side project anymore. People now try to sell emulators, and while this allows them to have big teams, those big teams still suffer from the second point:
Second, we need to look beyond emulation. We've reached a point where it cannot be done efficiently, but we can do other things, like recompiling games to run on a different platform and thus run at full speed, or use FPGAs to replicate core aspects at a perfect speed. Or do both. That would cost you a bit more money, but that would work wonders.
But no one seems interested in doing something different, they're just replicating old techniques because they worked before, even though they don't anymore.
Daily reminder, that the secret IRC club are not releasing the multiplayer build
I played this a lot, then went to GoW 2
ssh tunneling is a bit more than just using ssh normally
i have the ssh daemon set up on my home router running tomato
do you know anyone who has a somewhat moddable router? if so, flash it with tomato or ddwrt and turn on the ssh daemon. you should probably set up an ip whitelist or at least key auth if you go that route, though
i even have ddns set up so when comcast decides to change my ip for no apparent reason i'm not suddenly fucked
So with the different AR variants its confirmed that the official game will be p2w trash?
But we're hoping for a custom version where shit like that are removed and its as close to the H3 multiplayer as possible?
That actually makes sense. There are literally no console players in russia, so halo franchise is still fresh to wider audience. Most russian gamers are pc only and love f2p games. Russian f2p market is very profitable. All that makes russia the best place to release f2p pc version.
microsoft is fucking mining us for work aren't they
they want us to figure out how to make this privately online amongst ourselves just so they can steal our method and toss it into the final product
>get a letter from Microsoft
>in two days time
>over the internet
Guys, my dad works for the FBI, he resolved the problem already.
Also King Jong Un called, he said he'd lend his best computer specialists to work on the server, they're coming to 4chan as we speak.
