Sparky of halomodtesters Releases Kit for Modding Just About Everything via Halo: CE on Mac

May 10th, 2018
Sparky of halomodtesters on YouTube is putting a lot of work into some pretty cool stuff for Halo: CE, particularly on Mac in this case. Here's what they had to say:

I've been working hard on my Zeus-related projects as I mentioned over the years. The Zeus projects were experiments, and they are generally concluded. Today, I am announcing an application that I am developing to replace the Halo Custom Edition Halo Editing Kit programs. This all-in-one application is called "silence". I frequently post results of the day's work on this application on my YouTube channel, "halomodtesters".

The application is ready for a user test, so I simply recorded a video of its current capability of reading .actor tag files (used by the Halo Editing Kit).

Here is a beta tester build, with fully-featured .actor tag file format support. The .zip archive is encrypted. The password is "beta tester". Thanks for your interest!(MacGyver10 15:03:43 UTC)

Rockslider Shows Off a Cool, New Halo Combat Evolved Glitch in Merging Covenant Bodies

May 2nd, 2018
Rockslider put together a new video in our forum showing how to merge the bodies of dead Covenant and marines in Halo CE's campaign.

Not sure if anyone has really shown this off before either, as it seems to be a cool, new glitch for this 17 year old game!(MacGyver10 15:35:53 UTC)

343 Industries Asks the ElDewrito Team to Halt Work on ‘Halo Online’ and Discusses Community Content

April 25th, 2018
Looks like the inevitable was addressed yesterday, as 343 Industries shared over at HaloWaypoint that they and Microsoft are strongly encouraging the ElDewrito team to cease working on their 'Halo Online' project. If you remember, 'Halo Online' was a game Microsoft released only in Russia to test the waters for Halo on PC, but cancelled shortly after. It's a tricky situation, but one 343 Industries explains very well I felt in their Waypoint post. (Thanks munky-058!)(MacGyver10 18:28:55 UTC)
