When you say "add -console to the end of the target shortcut" what does that look like I am not very good with this stuff haha?

I have spent 3 days trying to get past the second checkpoint, Master Chief keeps getting himself killed. At the very best i would call this a tease.

Do you seriously need to reduce the Gamma automatically in addition with ENB settings? Because that's annoying and makes it extremely difficult to see anything and isn't realistic at all.

I'd like to point out that Plasma Weapons should have no recoil whatsoever. Also, the M6C/SOCOM has twelve rounds in its extended magazine, not eight.

This may just be my experience, but it seems like I have an easier time "sniping" with the M7S than the BR55 (Which behaves more like a DMR) or the Covenant Carbine.

Other thoughts, The invisible elites could attack after you press the button when you move inside that building. I feel its more satisfying to pull through the situations where you are unprepared. It kind of has a feeling of Dark souls too it, even though that's a bit of a stretch saying that. Like that first map where you were faced with the scarab, or even the beginning of the mission where you were suddenly gunned down by turrets and a split second decision had to be made. Thats the difficulty in games I really like, I know you must cater to different crowds and not make it too difficult. Still since it is already a hardcore mod and a providing to a niche demographic, It might be better to just see how far the difficulty can be taken. More of those niche sort of people like me might catch on and play it if word spread of it being a crazy difficult mod.

I appreciate it if you take the time to read this, I do talk/type far too much.
