    Hello. As most people can guess, Im new to this community.
    So Hi.

    Today ill be showing you how to mod a film.
    Properly. Clearly.

    This is alot easier then hex editing the film. Because you might just make a mistake , therefore corrupting your film. (dunno, Never done it)

    Hardware needed.
    A connection with your computer, and xbox 360, Most likely an xsata, xport, or a microsoft transfer cable.
    A brain.
    Able to use explorer360.

    Note : I will not show you how to get the film from your explorer 360 program. Just showing you how to use this.
    Another IMPORTANT NOTE! Do not use film clips. Only films. We currently don't know why.



    First, You will need Halo 3 toybox.
    Which can be found here : http://www.se7ensins.com/forums/halo-3-modding-programs/101443-halo-3-toy-box-v2-new.html .

    After you have downloaded it. Install it. And open it up. you should see a GUI. Click the tab "Applications"
    Like this:
    [​IMG]



    Go down to "film editors" And take your pick. I'll be showing you how to use both. First, ill show you the first one. "halo 3 film editor"
    [​IMG]

    Part One

    Halo 3 Film Editor

    If you prefer the other program, Please skip this. and Go on to part 2.
    When you open the program, you should see this :
    [​IMG]

    Now hit the open button.
    And find the film you'd like to mod. :biggrin:

    Now, When that's done. you'll see this :
    [​IMG]

    Now the rest is self explanatory.

    Once your done. Save it. And move on to part 3. The rehashing and resigning.
    Part Two

    Mirage Beta .95



    When you open it , you should see this :
    [​IMG]
    hit the open button.
    Find the film of your choice.

    Once you have opened the file, It should look like this :
    [​IMG]

    And again, The rest is self explanatory.

    When your done. Hit 'save' .

    Part Three
    Rehashing.
    Go back into the Halo 3 toybox.
    Go into Applications > Rehashers > The first one.
    When you click it. You should see this :
    [​IMG]

    Click the big Rehash button.
    Find your file. ,
    Once your done, it'll give you a message :
    [​IMG]
    then your done rehasing. Now on to resigning.

    Step four
    Rehashing.
    Go into halo 3 toybox. And go to "Resigners"
    click the one that says "con resigner" (second one) (Most recommended) .
    You should see :
    [​IMG]

    Open the file. And DONE!

    Congratulations, you have just modded a film!
    It may seem like a lot but its not.

    I like this community alot, And hopefully i wont get any flame. :wink:

    Thanks guys.
    I hope i taught anyone something. :smile:

    Have a nice day.

    Psst. Hey, I know a super-efficient program that saves you many steps. It's called Forge.

    The only thing you need outside of Forge is transferring the film.

    Not trying to be rude but did you really need to make this?

    How stupid do you have to be to not know how to use these apps? they are extremely simple

    there might be some people who just joined and want to make their friends jealous by saying they have recon. I know at least once in someones life (if they played halo 3) They want to do that, I know i did. Once.
    Plus, Most people don't know how to use the resigner.
    My friend on Msn asked me if he had to copy the info at the back of his xbox into the resigner. (device id , serial number ect)

    OMG. I just started modding halo 3 again. I have modded user maps and films before but now, even after following about 4 tuts on modding a film it ain't working. I am not making a mistake, I am rehashing and then resigning but somehow my film is still becoming corrupted. I am not wearing any Mark VI armour. WTF?

    You need to make sure your using a resigner with an unbanned keyvault.
