    Landing gears and cargo door are down/open with no driver, up/closed otherwise (no collision on closed door however)*
    All but 2 seats work (but you probably didn't know they even existed anyway)
    Gunner is first person. (try it out!)*
    Seat animations are the best Spire has to offer.
    Enter Pilot/Gun from the inside. (Left side is Gunner, Right is Pilot)*
    Falcon Menu in Forge:
    Block 1x1: Default Pelican with Turret
    Block 2x2: Default Pelican without Turret
    Block 3x3: Damaged Pelican with Turret
    Block 4x4: Damaged Pelican without Turret
    *Personal Touches that didn't normally exist for a Pelican.
  5. Darth liked a file by Lord Zedd, Outbreak (ODST)   
    The Flood have touched down in New Mombasa, and your team is all that is left.
    Requires the Map ID 8188 to be added to your game's .campaign file, as well as the latest ODST xex that unlock all missions.
    Final filename should be "outbreak.map".
    This mod includes every flood form from Halo 3, including the cut banger infection, as well as a more-powerful human form for infected players and an infected engineer.
    Third Person can be turned on and off with d-pad down and d-pad up, respectively.
    Only real issue is that the Infection Forms tend to count towards the wave ai counter, so if a wave isn't ending you will need to go hunting for them.

    A program I made a while back and forgot about. Lets you poke a variety of gametypes to the Halo Reach Pre/Beta. You normally had to use the "Atlas" build of Assembly but it kinda died and it's a hassle to boot up just for gametypes anyway.
    Dev kernel/xbdm will be necessary for things to work, as well as a copy of xdevkit.dll in the program directory. Find it in your 360 sdk installation or probably some other modding program that included it when it shouldn't have.

    Version 4.1: I fixed a string and lobby list positioning, if you downloaded version 4 you should patch again with this one!
    Adds custom games and forge lobbies with proper formatting to accommodate, now with working game options. This updated xex is recommended to fix the mp lobbies defaulting to options instead of start game on load.
    CURRENT BUGS:
    None? Previous carnage report crash issue is on map makers to fix.

  22. SpartanTriplesix liked a file by Lord Zedd, Offline Spartan Ops   
    So I finally managed to get it working.
    So in development, 343 used a special lobby, "pve_development_only_custom", in order to test Spartan Ops locally. As seen in the Halo 4 Beta, pve_dev was a slightly modified Reach firefight lobby.
    By injecting the level select and gametype select UIs and modifying them, I managed to get only so far, because assigning pve_dev a screen and trying to visit it crashes the game. I tried a few things, such as not assigning pve_dev and simply "backing out" to it, which kept me in the same lobby I backed out from, but presumably as pve_dev. It always kicked me back to the lobby after the countdown I gave up for a bit.
    Recently I thought to crash it with Visual Studio attached. Luckily enough, it told me about an exception getting thrown. Investigating that exception, I found a switch case that doesn't catch values past 0xC (theater). pve_dev happens to be 0xE, which means it was reading an instruction as an address, and therefore crashing. At the expense of some matchmaking lobby code (you guys don't need it, right?) I wrote up some code to catch 0xD/0xE and send them to the campaign code. It worked!
    Because it's using the campaign lobby code, it isn't perfect but that cannot be helped with the original code missing like it is.
    That said, I researched CUI a bit and cleaned everything up to be more presentable, including a custom lobby, "final" strings for FFGT missions and mapinfos, injected the 1.5 missions, and added proper blfs for every map.
    As a last-minute addition, I figured out how pck files are loaded and added paths so that all spops/dlc sounds will work, granted you have the pck files for them (not included). Here is a screengrab of my English(US) folder to use as a guide http://i.imgur.com/yFyZpxc.png
    What this rar has:
    the mainmenu patch
    the xex patch for TU7 (which works just like my other xex patches)
    modified mapinfos and blfs for all 15 maps.

    What you need to supply yourself:
    clean disc xex
    tu7 patch files
    the spops maps from disc 2
    the 1.5 spops maps from XBL (or wherever, but its free so why not get it from the source?)

    If you know what to do with them and don't want to go through patching, here are the xex changes (TU7)
    At x826777B8, x826777C0, and x826777C8 - Change each to x826778C8, which will set up a change to the matchmaking lobby code, giving us free space
    At x826778C8 - Change to x397F00075563003A, this is is to finish the above, just a copy of the other lobbies' code
    At x8267778C - Change to x48000084, this is the "hook" for the switch case so we can catch pve_dev's value
    At x82677810 - Change to x2B1E000C57C0103A4199FFC84BFFFF74, this applies the shift that we overwrote to branch here, then checks values greater than xC, and sends them to the campaign code, anything else returns to the original switch
    All done!
    This mod has been tested over system link and appears to work fine.
    I do not guarantee the accuracy of these internal FFGT Spartan Ops gametypes. The missions I've played appear to work fine.
    When starting the game, make sure the map matches the name in parenthesis in the mission name. If they do not match the game will load but nothing will happen and you won't be able to spawn.
    Bugs/Issues:
    This mod does not cooperate with mainmenu_patch.map. While it is possible to fix, the _patch map has its own strings so every gametype is blank. To work around this, simply add rename "mainmenu_patch.map" in the games root. onyx_patch and onyx_spops_patch should work fine.
    The lobby resets on every instance, which is due to it using the campaign lobby code. Every time you back out or finish a game the gametype will clear and the map will get set to Prologue
    The gametype list is limited to 32 items, whereas there are 50 spops missions, therefore only episodes 1-5 show by default and 6-10 need to be poked. Poke 0xBE54ED1C to the offset 0xBE54CA78. Or in Assembly, change the address of the "Spartan Ops Variants" block in multiplayer\game_engine_settings_new.wezr to 0xBE54ED1C.
    As mentioned above, there will be no sounds unless you have the corresponding .pck files, which again look like this http://i.imgur.com/yFyZpxc.png
    Not all gametype options may work, which is an engine thing.

    Usage:
    Patch mainmenu.map with Assembly
    patch default.xex with the included batch file
    backup your spops mapinfos
    copy the info and images folder to your maps folder, it will overwrite your existing mapinfos
    copy your .pck files to your "\sounds\English(US)" folder or equivalent
    rename "mainmenu_patch.map" in the root if you have it

    Ingame, simply chose Spartan Ops from the Infinity Menu and you'll be in. Choose a mission, then select the matching map found in the gametype's name, and enjoy some offline Spartan Ops!

  23. SpartanTriplesix liked a file by Lord Zedd, Expanded Gametype Options for H4 Main Menu   
    You want it? You got it.
    Via 112 (6 being broken and unused, so more like 106) new, injected tags, this patch adds options for every possible player trait except 3 special cases. (All 3 are still implemented, but hidden. Refer to the layout)
    Saving from Forge Options now possible
    all runtime trait menus replaced with standard ones as a lazy solution to adding more options for them
    Forge Options given a duplicate layout of Customs with the Megalo Options link switched to Editor Traits
    Editor Traits converted to full fledged trait menu for scaling and other fun stuff, not all options may work
    all tactical/support spinner values merged and applied to all relevant instances
    added pokable support for Weapons On Map and Flood/First Megalo Loadout
    weapon spinner values given none, flood talon, and target locator options and is applied to all relevant instances
    equipment spinner values given flood thruster pack option and is applied to all relevant instances
    added 14 new loadout names, partially to support flood loadouts properly.

    **Includes "menu layout.txt" and "tagnames.txt" for reference**
