Scripting & Other: Reference links (mainly for CE)

Postby Sparky » Sun Aug 17, 2008 10:01 pm

Here are some helpful things I found on other halo modding forums regarding scripting and other hot topics. Although the information is primarily geared towards Halo Custom Edition editing, I recommend you read them for general knowledge.

CE tools list

A quick note about falling damage and physics

Camera focus depth and cinematics

EHS (Easy Halo Scripter) v2.0 forum topic and Gearbox Software Forum topic
EHS v2.0 filefront download(PC/Intel only)

Backpack weapons mod forum topic (CE modding, but worth reading)

Discussions regarding devices (machines) and their scripting; also mentions multiplayer device sync-ing issues, similar to the AI issues we know about now.
First
Second

Manually editing Gametypes

Picking up vehicles with the pelican

Multiple BSPs, making new single-player maps and cutscenes

Converting UT maps, translocator gun, etc.

A CE multiplayer map with AI.
Discussion about sync-ing AI and other relevant chit-chat

A flash file (with link to a cool CE mod) that is found in Stuntman's signature

Very long list of scripting variables (more comprehensive than the standard, mostly for Sapien) You'll notice that they aren't necessarily usable in Halo; read the all the replies.

An in-depth look at scripting

Some advice on scripting (don't bother reading the whole thing)

How to PWN a banshee noob

General Halo Editing Tutorial Links (Ghost) Note that not all the links work. Don't bother clicking the Wiki ones, they're dead.

How to make your own HMT plugins (works with Eschaton, of course)

Setting up Notepad++ to work with Halo Scripting as an alternative to the EHS linked above, I guess.

Script used for deleting objects

How to make it snow

Online Halo Scripting Bible reference Please use the scripting topics linked above in conjunction with this reference, for greater understanding.

Collision vs. Physics Models

EDIT: Thanks for the sticky, Monoman - that was completely unexpected :D

I'll clean up the organization at a later date, sorting by subject. I guess it would also be o.k. to add links to our tutorials, so those will go under the "MGM Halo References and Tutorials" section that will also be categorically sorted.

I didn't get him to do anything - it appeared as a sticky about 5 seconds after I posted it.

Go figure. I was getting confused, because I didn't see it posted. Looking further up on the page revealed that it became a sticky almost instantly! :jester:

Well, I'll keep adding to this as I find more insightful topics and helpful resources, but I'll use replies to keep people updated.

If you find very useful information about halo modding, please contribute to this topic. Thanks in advance 8)

Oh, and I'll edit the first post to include new references.

While I'd normally place that one in the Tutorials sticky, it has more to do with CE (am I right?) so go ahead and post it here. I'll place a link to your reply in the top post.

bazaar.

Would you go into more detail with that short tutorial, please? Perhaps a step-by-step process with an example would be more helpful than a short description.

Thanks.

I think I'll add some references to level design. For example:

Map Design 101 by Chris Carney

And also, it's about time I cleaned up the initial post.
