ONLY IF YOU WANT TO PLAY THE NEWEST SEASON!
1; Go back to your dashboard and start your game with the (Warez, removed. Please use this, which will have TU3 shortly.
2; Select your map and play

 
5: Playing/Troubleshooting Maps

- understand that playing on spartan ops maps is still very new and if you are not modding the map file there is really not much you can do. We are working on making them fully functional. Please be patient.
Troubleshooting
1; if you spawned outside of the map...
- You Will Need to edit your Starting location, Go into Scnr, Player Spawns, and edit the X,Y,Z values to edit your location when you restart your mission.
Maps That Will Need Location Changed
Chopper Bowl - (last Chunk)X=10 Y=-20 Z=3
Sniper Ally - (Last Chunk) X=10 Y=0 Z=0

Dlc01_Factory (You Must Change Location to - X=-120 Y=0 Z=5 and make loadouts = to -1 Under Functions)

Alot of the NEW Season just flat out don't work. We are working on it.




2; If you die as soon as the game starts...
- Go into Hlmt and set the Invincibility Enum 1 &Invincibility Enum 2 to True Then Poke and Restart the map.
 
*If you want to Spawn Characters that you can fight you will need to edit the strings inside the map.
1; Go to "Scnr"
2; Set "Loadouts" to -1 (Under Functions)
3; Go to "HSDT"
4; Select your Chunk (in Ascension it will be random, this is why you will want Assembly)
5; Set that chunk to "Startup" under "script options"
6; Restart your map.
(Now after you restart your map, maybe something will change maybe not. Just keep trying until you find good ones to change. WRITE DOWN THE GOOD ONES!)

Don't need insertion points.

You gotta explain the things you are doing or people will never think for themselves

on some of the maps like apex I start dead and it says respawn in 0 but I don't respwn unfortunately
so far hears what I have

Vahalla - works (but its in mp so not a big deal)

Complex - Works (but its in mp so not a big deal)

Forts - Works (very cool)

Chopper Bowl - Not working (needs new spawn I think)

Sniper Alley - Not working (Needs new spawn I think)

Temple - didn't work at first but I got it working by editing the spawn point. (works very cool )

Scurve - (Works very cool)

Cortyard (works very cool)

DE Engine (Not working Respawn in 0 error)

DE Factory (Not working Respawn in 0 error)

Control (works very cool)

Cyclone (wont start)

Warrens (Works Very cool)

Apex (Not Working) respawn in 0 error

Harvester (Works very cool)

If anyone manages to get any of the other maps working please let us know also if you have any of these maps working please tell us how to get them working!

maby you could make some patches for the maps that aren't working?

edit so on to a different subject im taking a wild gess and saying that if you replace the hex in the mapinfo with 00 00 10 4C instead of 00 00 00 2C then that will make it a wargames map?

question is how could I put that into the wargames menu? nvm  this works I found the map in wargames custom games menu but it appers locked.

I can enter the map in forge but I cant move.

I changed the map type to multiplayer with Assembly.

It also still shows the map in campaign but changing it to multiplayer removed the hud.

id be great if I knew how to add more multiplayer settings in to the map like 343 biped charicter or whatever is needed to forge sucsessfly.
it was a nice little adventure and step in the right direction. I hope we can do more with thease moding programs in the future.

I have been trying to get the first person animations working but so far no luck

so anyway I was looking at another topic of moding halo reach and someone says the reason bipeds become invisible is because thay are trying to put mp armor on the mc im not sure if that's the case hear?

 

im working on the map the temple atm im not sure if I changed the first spawn point or nulled it out but I can start on the map with an invisible player in campaign. and also in coop campain.

 

if I strat the level in forge im stuck stareing at a wall tower light type thang.

 

id like the level to use the mp  biped. I know the level was not ment for campin witch is why im gessign the biped is invisible?

I realy wana have little battles on this map in multiplayer.

 

I think if I had a moded veriant for the map it may work in mp. but because I cant move or save a veriant it apers locked in mp only openable in forge.

 

is it possible to change to the mp globals change the biped to 343 and give the 10000 needed to forge with in assymbly?

Trying to get it to work in MP and especially Forge would require a lot more work than that.

Spartan Ops isn't necessarily campaign but it isn't Necessarily multiplayer, either.

It was default variant in biped that lets you make him not invisible. Like so:

yeah its odd basicly its not campaign or mp but firefight. basicly a mix of sp and mp witch is the problem what we need to try and do is make it ither fully sp or fully mp.

 

the temple would rock as mp map I think personaly. unfortunately I cant select the mp globals inside the map.i know that the map starts out wit hthe multiplayer character not the mc, so that is probly why the player is invisible. I tried different veriants and poked around but nothing changed looking at the revine map I can see some changes I was able to make 1. is input the 343 biped 2. add player customization. 3.add 10000 4,make the map multiplayer. 5.got the map to start in forge.

but all that dosent matter if I cant change the map to use the mp globals instead of firefight.

 

im thinking a hex edit might actuly make it playable in forge?

I used a specific string ID, Unicorn. I'm not sure if you can get your own armor exactly, but you could always change around specific parts in pmcg. And Reach didn't have Fotus, or valhalla (or stasis rifle) :)

There are 64 variants to try, but if none of them work, as a work-around you could use pmcg. For instance, set everything to Fotus in the variant, and then in PMCG you could change the fotus head into deadeye, the fotus chest into raider, etc. and do it patchwork style to build your spartan back up.

 

Not a perfect solution, but it would let you at least have your armor for screenshots or whatever before it's figured out how to properly enable it.

You have a modified console(RGH/JTAG/DevKit). There are plenty of cool .map mods in the download section of the website, and on deadcanadians Dropbox but I'm not sure where it's at ATM.
