    Credits go to Tural from halomods.

    What you will need:
    Ch2r
    Photoshop
    DDS Plugin

    Required software can be found HERE



    Tutorial:
    Open Ch2r
    Open mainmenu.map
    Navigate to ui/global_bitmaps/emblems
    Double-click foreground.dds
    Select a bitmap, I will use 57 (The number three)
    Click Extract
    ---
    Open the foreground.#.0.dds in Photoshop (Where # is whichever you extracted), Select "No" to Use MIP Maps
    Edit to your liking, make it like the original colors, blue is primary, yellow is secondary.
    Resave it as a 4:4:4:4 ARGB (16 Bit) and select Generate MIP Maps
    ---
    Go back to Ch2r
    Go to the foreground bitmap viewer
    On the drop down list, select Old Bitmap Viewer
    Go back to the same bitmap you extracted (57 for me)
    Click Inject, find your image

    If it worked, you should see "Image sucessfully injected" or something to that effect

    I know this is bringing up an old topic, but if you made a modded Halo 2 cd with the modded mainmenu/emblems, wouldn't they work on xbox live?

    Nvm that but now I have an error. It's an unhandled exception.

    It says because "C:\dump.txt" cannot be accessed? wtf?
