Well summer has started for the MacGyver family, but Halo news didn't get the memo to slow down (even more so than it already has during this dryspell of mainline Halo game news)! Thanks to davidfuchs for the heads up on last week's Halo Community Update! Looks like the new Fireteam arcade game is mentioned with a FAQ (canon story, coming to places other than Dave & Busters/North America), some details on upcoming e-sports stuff and MCC community playdate all in one place.(MacGyver10 21:29:33 UTC)

It might be time for cake.

May 26th, 2018
Wow. Been a little while since I posted here (thanks, MacGyver10, for making that possible!), but a recent email from Stuntmutt, coupled with the 19th anniversary of this site, made for a pretty compelling siren call. Swing by the One One Se7en page for a new guest strip, and Stuntmutt's response. (We haven't accepted guest strips for that comic since 2004. We had to sweep a lot of dust out to even find the right buttons.) And to everyone still stopping by for a little bit of Halo news now and then, thanks for all the memories!(Louis Wu 17:32:20 UTC)

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)
