Description

After years of blood, sweat and tears, its a imagination no more. Halo: First Offensive, is finally having a release. It's not finished by far, but (for now?), its as far as its gonna get. Consider this an early Christmas present.


To install:
- Unzip the contents of this file.
- Copy the HFO folder and all its content to your LucasArts/Star Wars EaW FoC/Mods folder. (If this does not exist, simply create it)
- Use the PetroLauncher to select HFO.
- Play and have fun!

Please note that this release might contain bugs and might be a bit unbalanced. Feel free to make your own changes to your own files to make adjustments.

I would like to give out a major thanks to HammBoyTheDestroyer for helping me out so much with everything. This release wouldn't have been possible without him.

It's a little slow. Also, when I load it, I just get vanilla load screen and no music. While it's on my mind, are the assault carriers supposed to stay stationary? also laggy, but that might be on my part.

I must admit that the size of the rar, this mod would be low category. But it is really very promising, I admire the work on models in space and hope you continue with the land battles. The truth is that I was impressed ...

Might as well post im having the same problem with not being able to move ships while playing as covenant. Also while playing on my laptop if I called in ships that took fire from energy projectors the would stop warping in for second. Occasionally they would freeze entirely and be uncommandable. That may have been due to lag because of the laptop being a peice of **** however.

It should work with a normal mod installation for the Gold Pack, so see if you can find where your EaW:FoC data folder is. That should help.

Try using a mod shortcut. Install the mod to the mods folder, copy a shortcut from another mod, and change the target directory of the shortcut.

the directory for the Mod folder for steam games is different from normal ones, it is as follows: C:\Steam\steamapps now im not sure if its in the Common file or your steam user file, but look for EaW's folder and put the mod in the Mod folder, hope this helps

I know what causes the bug that causes Covenant ships to stop moving. It's the mod's method of creating the Cov ships beam/laser weapons. Rather than projectiles being fired from the ships, the plasma weapons are created by using the Drain Life ability for the ships as special attacks. Like any ship in EAW, when the ship comes out of hyperspace, or in this case slipspace, they start firing their weapons. When the Covenant ships start to attack, they activate those abilities automatically before the ships finish the hyperspace animations and they get stuck.

Still like the mod though. I just fired Installation 04 while playing as the Covenant yesterday.

If that's correct, well, that sucks. I was really proud of that system.... Another thing to work on then! But that may not be causing it... The ships' collision meshes were allowing them to run through eachother, so I made every ship a space obstacle. This caused the problem with every ship. I was able to fix the issue with the UNSC ships, but the Covenant ones still have the problem....
