    Mod Edit:
    The links have died, and this hasn't been updated in a while. The latest version of Ascension is [Click here to view the link], courtesy of xboxchaos.com (posted by Lord Zedd, in this thread).

    If you want an alternative program for map editing, you can also use Assembly, posted here. It can open maps from H2:Vista, H3, ODST, Reach, and H4 (along with a few beta versions of those games).


    Both require you to have Xbox Neighborhood installed on your computer to work, which you install through the Microsoft SDK. As this is warez, I will not be posting it. The top web result (not the video) on Google for 'xdksetupxenon 21119.10' seems to have many mirrors of different versions, including a mega.co upload of the 21119 sdk that I currently use. (Ignore anything that says 'recovery' in the description, those are something entirely different.)

    Original Post:
    Recently i had gotten the source code for ascension from Dark, which i have been editing since then. Mostly through settings such as adding the alteration Ident swapper so you can choose to use that one, auto saving screenshots, and other small things like auto loading a map on start up.

    Then i started working with XEX modding(Help from Chrisco), and real-timing that so you could activate debug cam and much more with that. So now there is a large selection you can choose from to change the xex. auto-aim not included. i dont support cheating.

    Then i talked to Nate(original person who made the RTELauncher and RTELoader so jtags could real time and we deleted all the jtag poking code. and setup a small XEX that would go onto a jtag as a plugin so you could real time edit with that automatically loaded instead of running a specific XWX. So once you install the plugin contained in this rar you will no longer need a special XEX to real time. it can be done from any XEX you choose. This XEX as well allows Jtags to take screen shots using ascension or alteration. Although being we cant freeze the console like a dev movement on the screen will affect the quality. Note that just because its on ascension doesnt mean you have to be on reach. the screen capture will work on any game.

    In short, no need for realtime launchers, and you can take screenshots by installing this plugin in the rar.

    in your harddrive, the parent folder meaning the very top one, simply place in the memedit.xex and your launch.ini as well to ensure make sure you have the newest dashlaunch so you can run the plugin. after that it should run fine.

    or if you get an error trying to poke whats the error?

    it would help if you told me the actual error. and when you say editing the the weapons what do you mean, in the .map or one of the poke memory buttons?

    I get nothing. What dashlaunch version was it made for?

    Running the game with other loaders doesn't work either. Can't poke xdk for the xbox poking options, object reference not set to an instance of an object error for map poking.

    My Jtag has got a jasper motherboard. I've got the 12611 dash and dashlaunch 2.20 .
    I put the plugin xex at the root of the 3rd partition of my HDD.
    I added this to my launch.ini =
    Code:
    [Plugins]
    plugin1 = Hdd:\memedit.xex 
    And I run Halo Reach from my official hard drive :wink:

    i include a link to download the dashlaunch in the installation text file, if you read that. version 2.20 and Nate said this should work on 9199, 12611, and 12625(however im on 12611) so im not sure about the other two dash versions.
