    I think I may have a solution for those who can't get the memedit.xex to work.

    1. Make sure your Launch .ini is formatted as follows:

    [QuickLaunchButtons]
    BUT_X = Hdd:\Content\0000000000000000\C0DE9999\00080000\C0DE99990F586558
    Default = Hdd:\Freestyle\Freestyle\default.xex

    [Plugins]
    plugin1 = Hdd:\memedit.xex

    [Settings]
    nxemini = true
    pingpatch = true

    *Note I keep my memedit.xex in the root of my HDD.

    2. Move your launch.ini file into the root of your HDD alongside the memedit.xex (or in the same folder that you have decided to keep the memedit.xex) If the launch.ini is in another folder the plugin doesn't seem to function properly.

    3. Launch the default.xex for dashlaunch and load the new launch.ini.

    4. Now go into Xbox 360 neighborhood and type in your JTAG's ip. It should now find it and you are able to poke your edits in real time as usual.

    Notes: I am using Kernel 12611 with Dashlaunch 2.2. I don't know if it needs to be said but ensure that after you have updated dashlaunch that you reboot your console >_<

    So, I had no clue the advanced xex poker had other games in the list. I added a bunch of Skyrim stuff to it when I saw that.

    Any way to add the game name to the list? Currently, I have to type Skyrim at the top and then it shows up, but it isn't on the list to just select.

    Now I just need something that can poke a list of offsets at once, and I'll be good.

    i have a file online that adds the games, and skyrim is actually one i've already added. however i cant update the file online right now due to the fact i need a new password to the ftp. you can email me([email protected]) with any game you want to add to the list. and i might find a way to add extras to it.

    EDIT:
    just went through and added a small thing to settings that will allow you to add your own games to the list.
    this version also contains running improvements form AMD. (faster map loading, string loading, and other loading times. new settings menu)

    http://www.megaupload.com/?d=LHGM16UY

    as well if you do any mapping for games please email me the value file and i will update the server when i have a change. the advanced poker is a part of ascension so i plan to have all values found free for the community.

    Can Ascension swap tags between maps? I.E. can I borrow forge pieces from other maps and drop them into Forge World? Don't currently have a JTAG, but I might make one if it's possible.

    Nope, Dead and AMD are working on making a tool that can edit them (Hopefully just be support added into Ascension though).

    From what I can understand, the source code was given to DeadCanadian under the conditions that he does not release it and that he does not change the program's name (there may have been more as well, I don't know). So, as stupid as it may seem, we're not allowed to release it because we have to respect the original developers' wishes.

    Any chance of fixing how plugins are handled?
    Ever since .039 Ascension crashes when a big(starts around 45kb) plugin attempts to load with invisibles enabled, when in .038 it hung for 10-20 secs but eventually loaded.
    I'd settle for just something to prevent the crashing aspect of it. :tongue_smilie:

    Can someone please tell me the supported dashboards for memedit.xex I updated to 14699 or the metro dash and I just get the ip error every time I poke a map but my ip is correct. Also are any of the 13*** dash's supported? Thanks.

    I've had no problem with xbdm/memedit up to 13604, but that's the highest I've updated.

    How come my Ascension doesn't show the names of the items like in your screenshots? I see mostly offsets for the names.

    it depends on the map, cause youll see the taglist files in a folder. thats where the tag names are but unlike halo 3 and other halo games we need to manually name all the tags there is going to be alot that are set to the default offset cause we dont know what they are. their actual names are encrypted.

    Thanks! I was just making sure I wasn't missing a step :thumbup:



    Also I was reading about different taglists. In my taglist folder in Ascension I have files called .taglist but when I download the tag list from on here its in .map.ini files. Was the file format changed to .taglist with the new version of Ascension? Is the 0.038 taglist more complete then the 0.027 I keep reading about? Thanks for the help.

    Would this work with RTH One Click Mod?

    And can you please post a noob-friendly tut on how to do this :biggrin:
    I Just got my Jtag/RGH today, and I need some information.
    Halo 3/Halo Reach, either one would be fine ^^
    The only problem I have with this is starting up Halo Reach..
    There is no good RTE Launchers that work, so I saw this thread and it caught my attention.
    On the downside, I have no idea on how to start Halo Reach with this memedit.xex

    On the launch.ini Do I edit the plugin to plugin1 USB-********* or the plugin1 HDD1-********
    Also, I have the latest dashlaunch of 14699, will this still work?
    Lastly: How do I start up Halo Reach to be able to RTE Mod?

    If you can answer all of these questions that will be great :smile:
    Thanks.
