This is the first beta for the ZH:HCW mod! Have fun, and report any life changing bugs, big or small, to us! So, you know, we can fix them :P
I'm having some issues with the installer. It's not actually downloading anything.
I'm having the same problem as destroy22980 >_>
download? it installs it to your ZH directory, follow the instructions :P
I used the installer! It's not putting any files into the ZH directory. I checked.
do you have a Mac?
No, I have a PC, with windows vista.

I like this so far.
1.randomize the base solders weapons between the assault rifle, smg, shotgun, and battle rifle. not every solder in halo held the same weapon.
2. add a flamethrower solder. (halo 1 or 3 as reference)
3. make the warthog types upgrades for the standard one.
4. bug report: the NPc characters love to send there ODST drops into buildings problem they don't drop they just spawn. so I have 6 enemy solders spawned in my buildings that my solders can't kill half the time
5. bug report: The ODST drops kill themselves.
And a Q are you going to add flood?
ahhh the random weapon thing.... maybe, im not sure how that could be balanced :/... and about the odst thing... they have to be spawned like that... the whole AI being stupid is just that.. the AI being dumb... we need a person that can code AI to fix that, lol... also, was thinking about a flame trooper.. maybe later when the buildings are replaced... this beta was really just a test for gameplay
about the odst drop you know that you have 50% change of staying alive when you set your feet first into hell also know as a HEV for people that dont know the quote of the odst
yay for taxi, for understanding! :p
don't say the name soo the microsoft see it.
they will delte this
Excuse me! ODST will die if you spawn them near your building cause you will hit the building... i reality a bad landing zone for them... i already incounter those Drops just drop them from a wide place for them to land thats all ^.^
Its A neat Beta but as all betas need
Oh and refinement (which probably means the same thing.)
Well Looking forward to future Releases and how this will evolve and flourish. :D
more like turtle wax, but yea it needs polish...alot of it :)
Is there a version for mac?
@ gamerman ... ummm...lol....no, maybe eventually, then again, i dont have a mac, soooo
don't work I look at the release crash:
Release Crash at Fri Jul 08 10:22:28 2011
; Reason Error parsing INI file 'Data\INI\Object\unsc\unscinfantry.ini' (Line: 'Object UNSCInfantryDemoMarineFitzgerald ')
great.. i thought i fixed that..... its a wrong token in the rocket dude code
i just checked, i did fix that problem... reinstall the mod, and make sure you follow the directions exactly, if it doesnt work, idk... no one else seems to have that problem
anyway! for ppl that it is working for, did you try out the maps labeled (halogen)? esp. the Marshlands map?
Ok so this is awesome! But i noticed a couple of bugs.
1. Pelican Rockets wont fire
2. Skyhawk texture/skin/mesh is wrong, its just a Jet. It doesn't look like a skyhawk
3. Don't know if its a bug or not, but ODST snipers aren't camouflaged. I only mention it because the other ODST units are.
4. I'm not sure here, but are the Pelican main weapons meant to be so weak against buildings?
ProTip: Regardless of how long it takes, make changing the names of the Units/Buildings a priority. I have no idea what some of my buildings/units are because the Object names or whatever are missing.
But all in all. GREAT JOB SO FAR :D
idk about the pelican rockets... another bug i guess... they work on mine... and seeing as the skyhawk has never been seen in any halo game, wat does it look like exactly? the snipers, lol the mod isnt finished, not everything is polished, or anywhere near complete... as for the pelicans gun, i just completely forgot about it (DERP) i actually have it stronger and with rockets in the current build, oh fill some pelicans with some rocket guys (evil smile)
The skyhawk unit looks exactly like the Aurora Bomber to me.
-___- read the readme..... it says that the skyhawk uses the aurora model, b/c this beta isnt the most current version
on the balance just make sure that all units taht have the random weapon put out eh dame damage per second. (works well on some other mods.)
Somethign I noticed. the normal AI plays like a hard AI. (I spent half an hour trying to fortify my base and it sends every drop in on my army which is half way to its base then wiped me out.)(I think it was set on normal.)
haha, your obviously playing as the UNSC... you have to be fast, this mod IS based on the books, and how the games should be.. its annoying realistic, my fix, change the starting money in your skirmish.ini file in your documents folder (zero hour data) to -1 (infinite money) and build like hell, if you arent that good at the game
I tried to find a skirmish.ini but i dont have one i have TFD.
also, what map were you playing on?
and its staying realistic... b/c its balanced right now, for the most part.. some things are still being changed obviously, but the mod IS realistic (kinda, wraith should destroy anything with one shot, as should scorpion and cobra)
OMG ITS HEREEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE
dont get too excited, otherwise your hopes will be crushed
I have a issue
Apparently it instals fine the mod works and the A.I. does to, but I do not have any of the new maps.
hmm did you check the unofficial maps ? or whatever its called? thats where they are located, and my Marshlands map (my best :D) isnt labeled Halogen, lol, but the new maps are under the unofficial section
Yes I did, maybe it was a messed up download or something gonna try from scratch.
hmmm you running TFD?
What is TDF?
Maybe Windows 7 64bit does cause me a lot of heartache
Maybe c&c frist decade
gonna do fresh instal of zero hour and mod.
tdf the first decade and tbd to be decided.
Okey so that is the issue, looks like I can still enjoy the mod on the stock maps, unless someone releases a map pack so people like me with disfuntual versions of zero hour can enjoy the game more fully.
Thanks for tdf barin was not at 100 percent yet.
im making the maps into a map pack right now :P
mechgt5 i have an idea maybe you could make a type of space map it looks like space etc and has space stations space ships etc for space battles or if you can add some kind of space battle to the campaign or at least to the game.
and also if you need a modder or a map maker or picture or image, logo stuff like that ask me i am willing to help i can also code XML type files so keep me in touch if you have xfire find me lspraven
not Ispraven Lspraven lower case L or just type something here or pm me on moddb.
Thanks looking forward to crushing both the covies and unsc on the maps.
I am prepared to be amazed by your craftmanshihp.
lol, ive never said my maps were any good, but Marshlands, looks like it belongs in Halo.. :D
I used my imagenation and thought postively for the best results.
:D yay!, lol the map pack is awaiting authorization, and where do the addon maps go for the first decade?
for the first decade you have to put the maps and the rest of the file in our maps folder in generals zero hour data in your my documents.
PLEASE PEOPLE RATE THE MOD IF YOU LIKE IT!! AND EVEN IF YOU DONT LIKE IT!
Overall later in development are you guys going to release a version of this update to work with the tfd or no because i just relized that cov. ai on tfd is not working on normal or easy only on hard. I know cov are a beast but still
actually, the covie AI just isnt finished,lol only hard for right now
Well it suits them well since they almost wiped humanity off the face of the unvirse.
lol, yep... but idk about making it as realistic as it needs to be... i want to though, but then it would be too hard
