    Lately, I've been thinking about this .map file. And, if I'm wrong, would there be any way you'd be able to access the main menu data from your hard drive (besides using a DEV Kit, or if otherwise...)? In other words, how can you access the main menu data from your hard drive (if possible)?

    Just needed to know.

    Not 100% on what your asking, but here it goes

    We can get into the main menu fine, we can get into ALL the maps fine. We can edit them fine. We just cannot resign them

    That map is stored on your disk. The only way you can get it from your HDD is by backing up your Halo 3 disk to the HD via the NXE option, and extracting it from the dump. This takes a lot of time.

    Like VF said, you cannot resign the files right now so all you would be able to do with after extracting it is open it in Johnson.

    Does anyone think/know if we(us without a dev kit) will be able to ever resign these files retail? Like could it be a reality and is someone working on making this available to us?
