Halo 4 Warthog Run

1 post in this topic

The Warthog Run is a staple of the classic Halo series, even Halo 2 was originally meant to have a warthog run but most of it was cut from the final game but recently restored by BlackDimund. Technically Halo 3 ODST's Coastal Highway included a slight warthog run too. But yeah unfortunately with Halo 4, there was never anything close to a warthog run. Only thing was a ghost run at the end of the mission Forerunner. So just for fun and to see how it'd turn out, I replaced that ghost run with a warthog run instead. It actually turned out pretty well but is probably the most difficult warthog run ever even with some adjustments we made to the warthog.

Changes we made:

  • Injected Warthog to mission Forerunner (m30_cryptum) includes all sounds too
  • Removed chaingun turret from Warthog to fix memory issues causing the mission to freeze
  • Replaced Infinite Boost Ghost in vehicle palette with the Warthog
  • Fixed driver seat animation
  • Increased Warthog engine maximum angular velocity to make warthog accelerate faster
  • Made Warthog more stable
    • Disabled suspension to reduce bounciness
    • Increased ground friction for better traction on ground
  • Removed string for ghost boosting tutorial during the run

Issues:

  • Co-op is supported but players that die during the run will end up respawning in a ghost
  • Passenger seat of warthog doesn't have right animation and will cause passengers to stand up in seat and be unable to manually get out
    • Can be fixed by setting the passenger seat animation to ghost_d but it doesn't look right so I left it as it is
  • Restarting mission, especially during the ending cutscene, will cause the warthog on the next playthrough to have numerous graphical issues including HUD elements to the point of being a giant blob sometimes

Big thanks to Lord Zedd and Tuco for help on creating this mod!

The download is for the Assembly patch file rather than the full map itself. For help with patching a clean map with that file, instructions are here in Lord Zedd's modding guide.

Hope you all like the mod! It's pretty nostalgic and fun, and incredible challenging too!
