As with the Reach forum, this is the official Technical Help thread for all things regarding the CEA edition of Halo as well as the original Combat Evolved. Same rules apply as the Reach forum one. Ask your tech questions, and myself or others will do our best to answer them. Ready set go!!!!!

Why do you think that the Halo 3 engine was not used for the MM for HCEA? It seemed natural to me to have the Master Chief fight as a himself, not a Noble Team member.

Seriously need to re-read what you post...I'm not following..jk jk. Anyway, the Halo 3 engine was a great piece of code. Not only is it the first completely scrapped, cut, regurgitated, and then re-written engine since H1...(yes H2 borrowed much of it's code from H1).

Now, besides the official statement about how 343i did not want to split the fan base by making the MM run on the CEA, and keep the game completely seperate from Reach, the engine compatibility was the big issue.

Halo 3 used a whole new netcode system, and it used a completely different different technique for shaders and bitmaps. In fact, Halo 3 is closer to Halo 1 in all engine and tag layout ways, including the use of the Chicago Scenario Shaders , and such.

In the end though, the side scripting engine used in in H3, or as we will call it MegoScript Sr, lacked the necessary tools to allow a classic game engine to run along side a newer one. I'm sure they could have rigged it somehow, but Live would have been the biggest issue. Halo 3 was the first title we had true "anywhere in the world" co-op. Halo 1 didn't even have anything besides LAN multiplayer. The only engine capable of pulling any of this off was the Reach version of Blam! And that is the more than likely the sole reason 343i chose to do what they did. Kinda makes you wonder what they are gonna do for H4?

Well, as of now it looks like the new maps will be included with the CEA disc, and not a seperate disc. The package will include the CEa remastered game, and the new maps for Reach. Beyond that, any extras you get are specific to the store you pre-order from.

Will there be any advancements in the .map structure? Or regression?

Good question Peachez. That one is probably better suited to Kornman over at Halomods though. From I can gather, the layout of the tag structure is going to be identical to Reach. But it does the raise the question as to how they are incorporating the original CE tag set into it. Scenario files in general don't like it when you have a bsp with predicted resources pointing to a scenario file, and another bsp pointing to a secondary scenario file. I wont be able to look into it any further until I get my hands on the game.

Just in the off chance you are reffering to titles coming after CE, it is still unknown. I still have not heard any word in regards to what the engines project name is, or what type of engine they plan on going with. All I do know is that is being loosley based off of blam!, but will be a completely seperate in-house made engine. Makes me wonder if they are still gonna use Havok for the physics?

Will there be bloom? Will the halo 1 pistol, AKA 3 shots to the head still kill someone...? Also you should add a specific playlist that has a rank 1-50 up and down, with no radar.

Thanks for the quick reply to that Peanut. as he said, yes there will be certain TU playlists that give reach players a more old school feel in matchmaking to emulate the halo 1 experience. And yes bloom was and always will be in a Halo title...unless they decide to make a game appropriatly called "Call of Halo: UNSC Warfare 1 Billion." Bloom has it's place in halo and always will.

Not sure if this is the right thread, only just joined,
bought the game, loved the original, love this one, only problem is i found a few bugs?!
when playing Co-op, top screen (me) was driving the warthog, and there was no sound at all, (driving sounds)
the sounds came back as i got closer to and or bottom screen (2nd player) was actually in the warthog,
it was like it was only playing what 2nd player was hearing?

Was playing online multiplayer on new maps today and I reached my Offline Credit limit. This did not make any sense to me? What are your thoughts? Is it just a glitch or something in the way they are doing the credits for CEA maps?

Recieved the game from Amazon and the games case had some physical damage but the disc looks perfectly fine. Not a scratch or anything. Tried to play the game in two different xboxes (the older white xbox) and neither will read the disc at all. Haven't found this happening to anyone else yet. Don't know if it's the disc itself or if my Xbox is just crapping out. Anyone else experience this?

I have yet to read of that incident. Will you be able to return it to Amazon for a replacement of refund?

I join this site to ask the same question... My xbox cant read the update data from the disc which is required before you can play, so i decided i`ll buy the game from Tescos and return Amazon their " Faulty disc".. turns out the game from Tescos is just same as Amazons.. so im left with 2 games neither of which works..... Does anyone have a clue as to why this game/update wont work???

All my other titles run/play fine.. im at a loss

i figured out it is definitely a problem with the disc since every other disc works and i tried installing it onto my hard drive and it said it can't read it at about 50%. i have the 360S and the latest version of the dashboard. This is literally a brand new game, i do not understand how it could be faulty. is it possible to send it back to 343 or microsoft so it can be replaced?

the disc can now be read after cleaning. however, it freezes at checkpoints where it should transition into a cutscene, will this be fixed by a patch?
