    Can you make a race gametype? Don't know if it's possible or not but I would greatly appreciate it if you could.

    Also, that Infection rocks. I love the extended settings.

    Technically our gametype editor is capable but we don't know enough about the scripting part to pull it off. But it's possible and is one of our top priorities.

    believe me when the members here can add new gametypes in, race,vip, and invasion are top priority, synth sounds very confident and thats good news, if infection is any indication i can almost garantee you its because they would be using basic editing as a base then adjusting the content that way

    Basic Editing is just a broken gametype that happens to work in custom games. Currently, we use pre-existing gametypes but in no time, we'll be able to create a completely new gametype from scratch. Invasion will be one of the biggest challenges but as far as I know, it seems possible although some minor features may not (i.e. pelicans and phantoms).

    Wait... does this mean most of the gametypes we're missing you/the community could (potentially) re-create, WITH all the options? :o
    Synth. I love you. /nohomo

    Very cool. Things like this will continue to make Halo 4 what it really needs to be. But now I'm curious whether the Jeff Steitzer "Infection" voice over was left (or any others). It'd be awesome to actually hear him voice the old core gametypes as they return.

    Just a heads up, I'm running a project called Halo Promod and it was banned from XBL for having modded content on the fileshare. I also lost my main account that was on the same xbox as well as the xbox itself. I recommend that anyone that hosts modded gametypes do so on a spare account AND spare xbox.

    Looking forward to the new tools!

    Quick question, is it possible to remove bloom all together? DMR is fine b/c the bloom is negligible but the magnum is a damn lottery gun with how massive the bloom on it is. Without bloom on it the gun is actually really good.

    They still are. I actually planned on changing the announcer voice in Infection but decided against holding it back for few more days over some petty detail. We have not identified the function to play sounds yet.

    Thanks for the warning. It would be a concern if I get banned since the game types were never on the same console as my gamertag. I modded the author fields to include my gamertag and the user ID belongs to some local account on my RGH.

    And yes, bloom can be modified. We're currently working on weapon tuning.

    Ya see, I thought that as well b/c if anything its a minor offense.

    It is quite ridiculous that they'd do that though.

    All it really it was trolls reporting the file and then some guy from MS swung the ban hammer b/c it that's how they make their money: new accounts and consoles.....

    It's funny too b/c I was 100% going on the word of the lead multiplayer designer who said this: [You don't have permission to view this link. Click to gain temporary access.]

    The multiplayer designer was speaking for himself not the company. Individual employees may like them but we are still bound to the Xbox Live terms of service. Your mistake was admitting you made them. Thanks for the warning. I will not personally claim I created all my future mods and they will not have my gamertag on them even though I remove all of my user id's from the file.

    Ya but also historically they have never banned for Fileshare reports. If anything you would get fileshare banned or only banned from the game/account.

    W/e. What's done is done. Just warning everyone else.
