    Update For March 8, 2015

    By Lord Zedd

    The latest plugin update under Assembly's Updater has been pushed. It should be available shortly on both update channels. The Github Commit can be found at: https://github.com/XboxChaos/Assembly/commit/6669bd23a87a5cea3754af445a2b6ca74cf9941d The changelog for this update is as follows: updated rmt2 and standardized better
    fixed up h2 bsdt and standardized the others
    fixed string size in reach sbsp
    fixed bit names
    named new mode ik block in reach+ animations
    named ai melee damage in reach+ units
    added the swarm and transformation blocks to odst char
    renamed transformation block to morph in h3/odst char
    added jmrq plugin for odst (ur welcome gamecheat)
    fixed and named boarding properties in char
    named extra targets block in odst hlmt
    fixed error on h3 scnr
    added missing block in h3/odst jmad
    named editor folder indexes in scnr
    other small char edits/additions
    named script values for h4 vignettes
    fixed objective conditions block in scnr
    small edit to odst+ squads
    fixed phantom types enums in phmo
    standardized and mapped pphy
    updated naming in metagame globals in matg
    updated all lsnd
    updated all snde
    updated and standardized drdf, and by extension csdt and rmbl
    fix typos in h3/odst goof
    added enums to h3b, reach beta, reach, and h4 sily/goof
    fixed big issue in reach beta impo
    A healthy-sized list this time around. Some changes came about while working on Outbreak. You will notice bitfield bits in reach are now named "Bit #" instead of just "#" which had been bugging me for quite some time. A semi-important fix is that the Boarding Properties in CHAR tags is named and properly sized. Injected AI should now be able to board you if the animations are all good. There was also a critical typo in ReachBeta's IMPO that caused freezing on injected objects. Perhaps the biggest change is that now most SILY/GOOF parameters have been named and put into an enum. Previously only Halo 3/ODST only had them set up. Along with names the enum includes the value type the xex expects from each SILY parameter.

    By Thunder,

    It's been quite a while since we have had a game night. Some of us have been quite busy with megalo recently. So, let's have a megalo based game night on Xbox LIVE.

    In order to register for this event, simply PMThunder your gamertag. We will send you an invite when we are ready to begin. There is a minimum post count of 5 to attend this event!

    The game night will begin around 8 PM CDT on August 3rd. Please be ready about 10 minutes beforehand so you can receive your invite.

    We look forward to seeing you there!

    This event has been canceled due to low interest.

  2. The latest plugin update under Assembly's Updater has been pushed. It should be available shortly on both update channels.

    The Github Commit can be found at: https://github.com/XboxChaos/Assembly/commit/1e040773a25d94cd2e72806d3a31fcb00a778c9c

    The changelog for this update is as follows:

    • changed h3 flags value in MP properties to 16 bit
    • added blocks to h3b equipment
    • added forced death dialogue enum to reach+ jpt
    • named text flag in odst chdt
    • changed naming of resource types in zone zonesets
    • fixed an enum value in h3-ish sily
    • named location string in reach+ scnr placements
    • named node positioning in scnr placements
    • named animation values in chdt
    • changed hidden enum in reach+ scnr sandbox to a flag
    • named firefight bit in reach+ squads
    • changed pmcg enums to flags
    • added new flag in pre-h4 ligh (lehvak)
    • fixed error in h4 hlmt
    • updated end of zone with new research
    • updated reach jmad with old inheritance block
    • removed testing values in h4 new inheritance block

    It's been 9 months since the last update. Big things to mention are the better CHUD animation blocks, and node positioning in scnr, so you can pose corpses or whatever to your liking.

    Probably another long delay coming, but it will be for good reason as the PC version of Halo 5 kinda came with full tag layouts, so I just have to port them backwards and LOTS of new stuff will be named.

  3. It's back! The insane forge playground has returned, now being titled Forge World Ultimate Edition.

     

    Go ahead, have a look at the screenshots:

    im not going to F*** around, how do u put the downloads on to your xbox??

  4. Nothing modding related here I just found something very interesting in the new star wars episode seven trailer.

    Here is the Trailer:

    at scenes 1:12-1:13 you see storm troopers

    If you look closely you can see there are troopers with different helmets, straps on there backs and ones with backpacks and without.

    WeRonjX.png

    In addition, the ones with the backpacks seem to have different helmets.

    But the one in the back has a different backpack and he has a kama.

    If you look closely he resembles a snowtrooper; but the helmet design is different from all the others.

    2GhTVmD.png

    It looks like Ralph McQuarrie concept snowtooper, here:

    3.jpg

    Lastly, there is another storm I want to point out.

    He has some weird backpack with an antenna.

    Just an idea to make a xboxchaos app for almost all platforms including phone.

    I am thinking of using Visual studio. Might change,

    I have started to develop the home screen.

    This app is a bit like HaloWaypoint.

    You can quickly check your messages, recent posts. A preset list of members. Staff contact info.

    And if your internet takes to long to load. You can kill time with a small maze game!

    As of now, im using a WebBrowser from the list of utilities and cached it to this site. Just a placeholder as of now.

    The goal of this app is to make a UI friendly interface, cross-platform, and special features exclusive to the app.

    You may join in on this.

    Contact [email protected]

    If your interested in working as well.

    Peace.

    If you haven't voted yet here's the link to the survey: http://goo.gl/qCPiYz

    No more shitty cranked_halo.map. I think I can do better this time since a lot has changed since that map mod was made when injection first came out.

    I've been distracted too much so millions of thingswon't be in here. More will be added in

    the future.

    Version One: https://db.tt/76NRRlwO

    Experimental Version: https://drive.google.com/file/d/0B_qQTvZFvb6OTm1KNTNTX1dCZzQ/view

    Version 1

    I've cleared up problems with everything that you see in the pallet list except the shade turrets. Don't spawn them. Also the AA Turret on unsc vehicles. Man I really did forget out those. It did work but decided to break on me. I'll look into fixing it.

    ===================================================================================================

    Future Updates:

     - Enabling turrets for pillar of autumn, frigates. - Adding more civilian vehicles. - Attempt to get the shade turrets to work.  - Look into weapons for cruiser, frigate mac cannon. - Add Super Carrier, Corvette.

    Target Locator:

    The height of the map impact the ability of the missiles dropping onto the map properly... FIXED

  5. What the fuck did you just fucking say about me, you little "cheater"? I’ll have you know I graduated top of my class on XboxChaos.com, and I’ve been involved in numerous secret hacks on Se7ensins.com, and I have over 300 confirmed mods. I am trained in doxxing warfare and I’m the top hacker in the entire anonymous forces. You are nothing to me but just another scrub. I will wipe you the fuck out with precision the likes of which has never been seen before on this website, mark my fucking mods. You think you can get away with saying that shit to me over the Internet? Think again, "cheater". As we speak I am contacting my secret network of modders across Skype and your CPU key is being traced right now so you better prepare for the storm, "cheater". The storm that wipes out the pathetic little thing you call your mods. You’re fucking banned, scrub. I can be anywhere, anytime, and I can hack you in over seven hundred ways, and that’s just with my scripts. Not only am I extensively trained in scripts, but I have access to the entire source of Assembly and I will use it to its full extent to wipe your miserable ass off the face of the website, you little "cheater". If only you could have known what unholy retribution your little online mod was about to bring down upon you, maybe you would have held your fucking key vault. But you couldn't, you didn’t, and now you’re paying XBLSE, you goddamn "cheater". I will shit projectile swaps all over you and you will drown in them. You’re fucking banned, scrub.

  6. Reach map files have a hash in them which is computed based on the data in the file header. This is kinda irrelevant since Zedd's XEX patches disable the header signature checks, but I figure I'd document this anyway because he asked me about it today. Here's some quick info on how to update the hash that's computed on the map header.

    First, you need to prepare the header by removing certain bits of data. Make a copy of the first 0xA000 bytes (header) of the map file. Then, zero out the following areas of the header:

    • 4 bytes at 0x320
    • 8 bytes at 0x328
    • 0x3C bytes at 0x330
    • 0x100 bytes at 0x36C
    • 0x100 bytes at 0x1C
    • 4 bytes at 0x144
    • 4 bytes at 0x148
    • 4 bytes at 0x16C
    • 4 bytes at 0x170
    • 0x18 bytes at 0x174
    • 4 bytes at 0x49C
    • 4 bytes at 0x4A0
    • 4 bytes at 0x4A4
    • 4 bytes at 0x4A8

    Next, you need to salt the hash. Put the following data at the beginning of the header you prepared:

    ED D4 30 09 66 6D 5C 4A 5C 36 57 FA B4 0E 02 2F 53 5A C6 C9 EE 47 1F 01 F1 A4 47 56 B7 71 4F 1C 36 EC

    Finally, compute a SHA-1 checksum over your modified header (this should be 0xA022 bytes after adding the salt). The new hash goes at offset 0x330.

    So yeah. While not too useful, I suppose this could be used to help map out unknown parts of the header based on the offsets that get zeroed. I'm also pretty sure that more hashes would have to be updated and not just that one, because cache files have at least three hashes in the header.

    Anyway, there you go. Have fun.

  7. Dunno if this has been discovered already, but thumbing through some 343i game types I noticed they did Fiesta with randomized personal ordnance. Here's the example:

        <Ordnance flags="InitialOrdnanceEnabled, RandomOrdnanceEnabled, PersonalOrdnanceEnabled, OrdnanceEnabled" unk6="0" customizePersonalOrdnance="True">      <Right>        <Possibility weight="1.000003" name="ord_weap_storm_energy_sword" />        <Possibility weight="1.000003" name="ord_weap_storm_binary_rifle" />        <Possibility weight="1.000003" name="ord_equip_damage" />        <Possibility weight="1.000003" name="ord_weap_storm_spartan_laser" />        <Possibility weight="1.000003" />        <Possibility weight="1.000003" />        <Possibility weight="1.000003" />        <Possibility weight="1.000003" />      </Right>      <Left>        <Possibility weight="1.000003" name="ord_weap_storm_rocket_launcher" />        <Possibility weight="1.000003" name="ord_weapon_storm_incineration_l" />        <Possibility weight="1.000003" name="ord_weap_storm_fuel_rod_cannon" />        <Possibility weight="6.000004" name="ord_equip_speed" />        <Possibility weight="1.000003" />        <Possibility weight="1.000003" />        <Possibility weight="1.000003" />        <Possibility weight="1.000003" />      </Left>      <Down>        <Possibility weight="1.000003" name="ord_weap_storm_sniper_rifle" />        <Possibility weight="1.000003" name="ord_spread_gun" />        <Possibility weight="1.000003" name="ord_equip_overshield" />        <Possibility weight="1.000003" name="ord_weap_storm_gravity_hammer" />        <Possibility weight="1.000003" />        <Possibility weight="1.000003" />        <Possibility weight="1.000003" />        <Possibility weight="1.000003" />      </Down>    </Ordnance>

    Pretty cool, eh? Here's a list of ordnance that can be used:

    ord_weap_storm_spartan_laserord_weap_storm_rocket_launcherord_weap_storm_sniper_rifleord_weap_storm_energy_swordord_weap_storm_gravity_hammerord_weap_storm_needlerord_weap_storm_concussion_rifleord_weap_storm_rail_gunord_weap_storm_fuel_rod_cannonord_weap_storm_sticky_grenade_launcherord_weap_storm_beam_rifleord_weapon_storm_incineration_launcherord_weap_storm_shotgunord_equip_overshieldord_grenade_triplasmaord_equip_speedord_equip_damageord_grenade_doubleplasmaord_grenade_doublefragord_spread_gunord_weap_storm_binary_rifleord_weapon_storm_lmgord_grenade_double_forerunnerord_weap_storm_assault_rifleord_weap_storm_forerunner_smgord_weap_storm_light_rifleord_weap_storm_bolt_shotord_weap_storm_plasma_pistolord_weap_storm_storm_rifleord_weap_storm_covenant_carbineord_weap_storm_battle_rifleord_weap_storm_dmrord_weap_storm_magnumord_aa_active_camoord_aa_active_shieldord_aa_auto_turretord_aa_forerunner_visionord_aa_hologramord_aa_jet_packord_aa_regen_fieldord_aa_thruster_pack

  8. This action is actually very simple. All it does is enable and disable a player's ability to spawn. It was found because dominion uses it for last stand. The action simply takes a player to modify and a bool. True enables spawning and false disables spawning.

    In KSoft, you can update your database with this

    <Action DBID="139" name="PlayerCanRespawn" template="PlayerBool" />

    Here is an example of using it to disable an iterator player's ability to spawn.

    <E type="Action" name="PlayerCanRespawn">  <Param type="PlayerReference" varRefType="ExplicitPlayerType" dataType="Iterator.Player" />  <Param type="Bool">False</Param></E>

    If you have any questions feel free to ask me!

    After a little bit of research I have found out what Action137 is used for. It is basically used to spawn in objects that are PlaceAtStart false based on an event rather than the timer it defaults to. This is used in Dominion to spawn in the base shields based on what team is controlling the base.

    There are four values that you set when you use Action137.

    1. ObjectReference. This is the candy spawner object itself. Not sure if it can be used in regular candy spawner obejets or not. Useually used with Iterator.CandySpawnerObject
    2. Bool: This bool is used to indicate weather or not the object can spawn. If false, the object will never spawn. You must set this back to true to enable spawning.
    3. Bool: This bool will instantly spawn the object if enabled. I equate this to object is enabled. Does nothing if the first bool is false.
    4. PlayerReference: This is the player that caused the spawn. If the object is a vehicle, it will force the player into the vehicle. Does nothing if the first bool is false.

    To use this, you need a couple things first.

    You obviously need a object filter. Here is the one I am using while testing.

    <Filter labelIndex="candy_obj" name="candy_obj" />

    Then you need to add a GameObjectFilters section under the normal object filters and add a reference to the normal ObjectFilters section then add a reference to that object filter.

    <GameObjectFilters>      <Filter type="CandySpawner" labelIndex="candy_obj" name="candy_obj" />    </GameObjectFilters>

    now you are setup to use Candy Objects. To use them you would put this in the sections where you want to spawn the object. Set both of the bools to false to make sure it will not spawn, both true to spawn the object.

    <E type="Action" name="ActivateTrigger">  <Param type="TriggerReference">    <T type="Trigger" trigType="Subroutine" execMode="OnCandySpawnerFilter" name="Trigger7_Subroutine26">      <GameObject type="CandySpawner" filter="candy_obj" />      <Elements>        <E type="Action" name="Action137">          <Param type="ObjectReference" varRefType="ExplicitObjectType" dataType="Iterator.CandySpawnerObject" />          <Param type="Bool">True</Param>          <Param type="Bool">True</Param>          <Param type="PlayerReference" varRefType="ExplicitPlayerType" dataType="NONE" />        </E>      </Elements>    </T>  </Param></E>

    If you would like to make things easier on yourself, I propose going into the ksoft documents and adding a name to action 137 to be used later easier. It will also make everything you decompile show that name instead of Action317 which makes it easier to read.

    To do this, go to the folder where you have KSoft installed, and then go into Games/Halo4/Definitions/ and open MegaloScriptDatabase.xml in your favorite text editor. Then Search for

    DBID="137"

    Then change

    <Action DBID="137" template="ObjectBase"> <!--candy spawner related-->			<Param sigID="1" type="Bool" name="Bool" />			<Param sigID="2" type="Bool" name="Bool" />			<Param sigID="3" type="PlayerReference" name="Player" />		</Action>

    With

    <Action DBID="137" name="ObjectSetSpawnEnabled" template="ObjectBase"> <!--Fruit Spawner-->			<Param sigID="1" type="Bool" name="Bool" /> <!--Weather or not the object will spawn-->			<Param sigID="2" type="Bool" name="Bool" /><!--If the previous is true, set weather or not the object is instant spawn-->			<Param sigID="3" type="PlayerReference" name="Player" /><!--The player that spawned the object.-->		</Action>

  9. Well I collected the xex gravity offsets across different 3rd Gen Halo builds for something I'm working on and I figured I might as well share them. Thanks to Lord Zedd for getting the Reach Pre-Beta offset for me. The rest were either gotten from Ascension (not sure who documented them, but thank you), or found by myself.

    These are floats, and the default value is always 4.1712594; poke in Ascension, Offsetify, or something similar. If you encounter any issues, please let me know.

    By Guest,

    This action was used in Reach's Race gametype with the index of 90 (Action90 in ksoft) and 118 in Halo 4. For the past few months, I've been trying to figure out what this action does. I decided to give it another try and I'm glad I did!

    Here's how it's used in Race (the official Reach gametype):

            <Elements>          <E type="Action" name="Action90">            <Param type="PlayerReference" varRefType="ExplicitPlayerType" dataType="Iterator.Player" />            <Param type="Bool">True</Param>          </E>

    I changed the boolean parameter to False and spent several minutes dicking around in both unmodified and modified gametypes like I've done many times before. This time, I noticed something different: You were spectating other players but not the checkpoints like in the unmodified gametype.

    After some more testing, this action appears to control whether you could spectate over players or respawn objects.

    Now, what to name this action... comment with your suggestions!

  12. Believe it or not, it may be possible to re-create the AA wraith of Halo 3 and Halo 3 ODST on reach, WITHOUT injecting it. NOTE: i said RE CREATE, so this is NOT the actual AA WRAITH. Anyway, the HUD UI of the AA wraith mortar is already on forge_halo.map, so after seeing that, i got a little idea. and after replacing the wraith mortar WEAP with the needle rifle and changing the Needle Rifle projectile, the result was quite resembling of the AA wraith. And after changing a couple shaders, the result was incredibly close. Although this is in place, I will keep trying with the REAL AA Wraith.

  13. This is the magical story of how a lonely Xbox 360 S traveled all the way from Mexico, in dreaming of it's future, wished to find an owner who'd love and parent it into an RGH. The story you're about to read is true, with names unchanged. Now please, sit down and enjoy this... story.

    We'll start with it's birthplace, China. Now, where it spent it's childhood, in Mexico. That's right folks, this console spent it's early years in Me-he-co, the place of cartels, drugs, and cheap prostitutes (don't ask). It's childhood was fair, as it used to play games with it's buddies which extend to each corners of the Earth. Together it and his friends would play exciting games like Viva Pinata, Sonic, and other titles that the children in India are oh so jealous of. Though, it's childhood was tragically cut short when his current parent decided he was no longer good enough for him, and sold him to a fellow in the good ol' States. This fellow was none other than the one and only DevUltra, who promised to provide a safe and nourishing environment where it could blossom into the RGH it had always wished to be. Mr. DevUltra loved his new adopted child, and treated him well. He was slow and kind to it, playing with him as a retail boy until Mr. Ultra felt he was ready to help him grow into an RGH. Once Mr. Ultra felt his son was ready, he carefully undressed him and did his best to transform his boy into the glorious RGH he always dreamt of being. Mr. Ultra succeeded in upgrading his child with the hardware his son needed, and though Mr. Ultra tried his best, his efforts were cut short when he was unable to dump his sons memories, and was only left with a partial file of his sons memories. Mr. Ultra was devastated, but charged on hoping he'd still be successful. And though Mr. Ultra's perseverance was unbreakable, he was unable to succeed. Mr. Ultra tried his best to cope, but just couldn't. Fortunately he had an amazing friend named Xythera, who he knew would take care of, and fix his son. And knowing so, contacted Mr. Xythera offering to give Mr. Xythera his son, in hopes that he'd be able to correct what he could not. And so comrads, that's where the true journey begins!

    So, I just aquired this console and the first thing I'm going to do is install the NAND hardware. I'll be installing the wires needed so I can access the NAND. Let's begin.

    NOTE: After spending 30 minutes writing that story, I'm not going to bother adding comments for each photo explaining what I'm doing right now. The photos speak for themselves. I'll add comments later.

    (These photos are in order)

    Chapter 1, Finding The G-Spot

    First, I had to decide where I wish to have my consoles NAND access wang hanging from, and after a short examination I found the perfect spot right above the video connections.

    blog-0888864001354564968.jpgHey guys welcome to my new Blog! I recently got an RGH to replace my old broken JTAG and I can mod again! Hooray!

    I have a full modding schedule which will keep me busy for a while, so hopefully I have lots of content coming!

    I am hoping for one new mod/video a week, but we'll see how it goes.

    Anyway this is week one a supose, so here we have it:

    MOD POST: http://www.xboxchaos...o-3/#entry22021

    Ok, so someone on here suggested that someone make a Metroid mod, it could be done as the CQB helmet is very similar to Samus' helmet. I saw this and though this is going straight to the top of my list! So I spend what seemed like an age studying Samus and attempting to recreate her in Halo 3. Cold Storage was the obvious choice of map due to the flood infection and the very Metroid-like creepy feel to it.

    I began with the shaders on Samus: her visor, and her body. For the visor I used the regenerator equipment crystal shader, and for the 'red' parts of her armour, I used and elite eye shader. I know its not red but it is as close as I could get it with what I had to work with. I had to get back to grips again with modding as I had forgotten a lot about how stuff worked, and Zedd was really patient with my questions, so thanks Zedd! :biggrin: I ended up installing XBDM and the Xbox SDK (which I thought was AWESOME! Especially the Neighbourhood! Loved It!) to get everything working, I was going to at some point anyway.

    After the shaders I moved on to drips and drabs of the other parts of the mod: The Metroid, the Morph Ball, and the Shoulders. The Metroid was basically an elite replaced with a Monitor and given the same movement properties as the monitor. I added a squashed tire, re-textured and a slightly squashed jammer equipment, with the same texture as Samus' visor. The little horns were made by the Life Sapper, which I will talk about in just a bit.

    The Morph Ball was the forge character changed to a mongoose. I then attached a energy drain to the wheel to make it spin and re textured it with the visor realtime shader. I initially had an issue with this as the forge objects spawned up side down, so you could not drive the mongoose. I could not find a work around, I tried rotating parts, move the collision model, all sorts of stuff, but nothing seemed to work. In the end I discovered that if you look straight down while turning into the morph ball, everything works out as the mongoose spawns on its end.

    The shoulders were just resized soccer balls re textured to the same as the morph ball and attached to samus. The arm cannon on Samus' right arm is resized fusion core that has also been re-textured.

    The weapons. I added 4 weapons to the mod. The Power Beam, Missiles, Seeker Missiles, and the Life Sapper. The power beam was originally the assault rifle. I swapped the projectiles out with ghost bolts, and changed the firing effect. I had to change the position of Samus' left arm to fit the arm cannon properly. While doing this I discovered I could change Chief's position right down to each part of his finger, and even stretch him out which produced some pretty comedic results.

    The Missiles were just a rocket launcher with the firing effect removed and the left hand position changed. Same goes for the Seeker Missiles, but they sort of failed as I gave them the same tracking data as needler shards, but they did not seem to follow any of the other players...

    The Life Sapper was originally the Spiker, giving it the to spikes used in the Metroid's body. I nulled out all the shaders other than the spikes and resized the spiker to fit the Metroid better. I made the projectile relatively weak in damage and completely reduced the range so you would have to touch something to reduce its health, like in the game. I did however raise the amount of projectiles fired each second to combat the low damage properties of the projectile.

    So that's blog post no.1! The next ones may not be as long though, I don't think I have enough time lol!

    Cya round guys,
