I'm too lazy to use QAR and so therefore it just sits in my downloads folder.

Besides... i dont want to play CE maps/full maps in demo because i already own full and i don't give a care about CE and its maps...

So QAR will just sit in my downloads folder, inactive.

I will resume working on my WWII mod now...
Because that is where i think the essence of this community comes from, the making of maps specifically for demo. All those older maps that were made in hexedit and newer ones that were made using tools with probably become insignificant because we now have access to these CE maps and would rather (for some of us) play those than maps made by the legitimate modders here.

(Also ima get >=[ at all these "[MOD] <CE Map Here> CONVERTED!!" threads..)

Even if I knew the identities, I wouldn't reveal them without their explicit permission, on who I could reveal it to.

So no, at least not from me. Why don't you ask them?

I think that only a very select few will ever find out exactly who these guests were.

Wow. Holy. Crap.

I have missed QUITE a lot during the time I was gone, it seems.

I am not about to go searching through 10 pages of most likely spam posts.

To say the least, my response is this:

Blackhat and the rest of his team are godly. However it is sad that this discovery and the development of their application was overshadowed by spam and Tyler's apparent asshole-ness. It's a shame.

In the end, however, I am glad that someone managed to create something I always had imagined was impossible.

That's all I've got to say.

Yes, try it, and you will understand that any modding is illegal, PERIOD. You will also get insight into the fact that no one has ever been *tried* only a c&d came once, you all are taking this all very silly.

Bungie/microsoft could care less, they dont give a rats ass about this, and farther more i doubt then even visit this backwater halo community.

Learn logic.

This in fact, is very serious. In case your not following along, try reading halo's EULA license agreement. If you indeed violate it, bungie has the right, and the money if they wanted to, to press charges, and prosecute you to the fullest extent.

Do you know what that means?

A few K
Possible time in the slammer
A record which haunts your life
And a phailing reputation

Need I keep going?


This really is bad (not sarcasm, just had to point out the phailing reputation. You know who you are) We need to get rid of this and quickly.

the World wor map in the top 100 at halomaps.org was protected but it played fine except when you fire the sniper it crashed :S

Post by zapconquest » Fri Aug 08, 2008 4:22 pm

First of all, I'm pretty sure that it's not possible to convert protected maps. None of the ones I've tried that were protected have worked (they crash halo if you try to run them).

Secondly, people who made CE maps released them to the public and probably wouldn't care who was playing them. Maybe they'd even be happy to know more people played their maps.

Thirdly, to those who say this will ruin the demo community: sometime in the future, probably in your life time, they'll decide to take down the halo demo servers. This app may or may not speed this up. Have fun while you can.

Lastly, to Hi54, I think you're taking this way too seriously.
