How to Install/Get Halo CE (Custom Edition)
« on: March 18, 2008, 02:14:09 PM »
*WARNING* Before you can play CE you MUST have your Halo CD Key!!!!!!!

Ok, got to Here and download and install CE.

This may take a while depending on your computer.

Sometimes a patch/update is needed, this is found here: Click



Now, maps.
BFM Server.
To play in any server on CE you must have the correct maps, the BFM up to date map rotation can be found Here.

Then, you need to put these into your map folder.
Firstly extract each Zip folder, and inside should be a .map file. This is the map itself.
Go to your Hard Drive, C:/     -->    Program Files   -->    Microsoft Games   -->    Halo CE  ---> Maps.
This should have by defualt Halo's normal maps, but might not, if so copy them over if you want them.
Now we take the .map file and put them in here.
Start up CE, and voila!
If you want other maps then go to HaloMaps to download them, and repeat the above to put them in.


Troubleshooting:

Note: The more maps you have in your folder, the longer Halo will take to load.
Note: CE and Halo can not both run at the same time.
Note: If you get the message, "an error occurred loading map" you don't have the map in your folder, or the correct version of it.

Happy CE-ing!!!!

You need to UNzip the folder, then Drag the map into the halo CE Folder, hope this helps!

This topic helps a lot. I didn't even know I could have Halo: Custom Edition for free if I had my CD Key for the normal Halo. I can't wait to try out the new CE server! :D

I've tried to d/l the maps file 3 times.  Each time the web interface looks like it wants to d/l the file, but the Firefox d/l function shows that nothing is being downloaded.  At one point I got a "file not available" message.

Haaalp!

Belay the Haalp!....I tried with with MSExploder and it worked.  One of my Firefox addons must not play well with that site.

Another edit.....there may be a problem with the file containing all of the maps.  I had an awful time getting all the maps unzipped.  Warthog Run Final and Domain Final simply would not unzip.  I downloaded them separately from the Halo CE maps site.

Regards,
Archer

and also added on those which are NOT in the map pack.

i would do it if i could :P
