Eschaton Unknown Tag Problem

Post by Dirk Gently » Tue Sep 22, 2009 8:02 am

Alt, there is a bug in eschaton. if you inject an "unknown" tag, it makes it be named the same as the scnr tag. this is fail :(

this should probably be in the Eschaton topic but what do you mean an unknown tag. What's the tag class?

Don't know why you'd want an unknown tag in a Halo Map. They wouldn't be supported by the engine.

I did a bit of Hexing on the engine, and a little HEK research when I made Emergence. When I get back on my comp I'll run it through Emergence. If it doesn't recognize it, then it's not in the engine.

funny thing, eschaton 0.6.1 recognizes the tag class, but 0.7 and 0.8 do not.

There's a handful of tags that Eschaton doesn't have in it's internal list of known tag classes. It should still be able to handle it just fine. Give me an example map to work with and I can check it out.

I will have to give you two maps. One is a stubbs the zombie map I am taking it out of and the other is a map I am trying to put it in. I can load up the map in 0.6 and and then export the tag, then if I load it up in 0.8, It will load, but the tag will read as just ":" and as class "unknown" and then if I import that tag and rebuild the map. Then when I load that new map it has an "unknown" tag class listed as a jumble of symbols instead of "imef" and the game has been renamed to be the same as the scnr tag name.
