    Programs that you will need:
    Entity UE 1.6
    ADI

    DotHalo



    Okay, so we start off like this, open up your map in Entity.
    For this tutorial I will be using Containment as my map.


    Open up your map, and go down to the [LIGH] tag
    [​IMG]

    Now find effects\objects\vehicles\ghost\ghost_plasma_vent
    [​IMG]

    Right-click and hit duplicate
    [​IMG]



    Okay, now close out of Entity for now.

    Open up ADI
    File>Open (or Ctrl+O)
    Find your map, and open it.


    Okay, now open up the [LIGH] tag
    [​IMG]

    Now, go find effects\objects\vehicles\ghost\ghost_plasma_vent(1)
    [​IMG]

    Click on the Meta Editor in the bottom right
    [​IMG]

    You can edit the colors to whatever you want, like if you want blue lights change all the red/green values to 0 and blue to 1.
    Don't forget to change both radian values to 0.5 as well.


    Now we're done with ADI

    Okay, now open up your DotHalo (I'm using v1.0b3.0, but it works the same in v1.1)
    Scroll down to the [vehi] tag and find objects\vehicles\warthog\warthog
    [​IMG]

    In the Dependencies editor, click the one that says "ligh" at the beginning
    [​IMG]

    Now you have to change it to your duped plasma vent. (Its relatively close to the top, and yours should read; "ligh - effects\objects\vehicles\ghost\ghost_plasma_vent(1)
    [​IMG]

    Change it to that and hit Save Changes

    Now we're done with DotHalo.









    Now, open up Enitity again.


    Open your map, go down to the [mode] tag
    [​IMG]

    Find objects\vehicles\warthog\warthog
    [​IMG]


    Okay, now scroll down until you see something that says "Marker" and change the "0" to a "9"
    [​IMG]


    Now change the Y to "0.001747948"
    X to "8E-11"
    and the Z to "-0.3428424"
    [​IMG]


    DON'T FORGET TO SAVE!!!

    Thank you!

    This is my first tutorial as well.

    Also, if 0.5 Radian isn't enough or bright enough you can make it brighter by adding more radian value to it, I set mine to 0.9 but 0.5 works well on darker maps. (like backwash)

    It's alright. But, the entire tutorial could've been done with Entity.

    Your MPShared .map File has to be in the same folder as the map.

    No, as I played my h2 mods on a 360 I never had the chance to take pictures in-game.
