    Hey guys, I'm here sometimes and never post a reply or a topic but I need to know something so can some one answer my questions with out flaming :wink:, I know that .map modding is not possible with out a Dev kit but recently I see so many different video's of Character modding weapon projectiles and vehicle mods (warthog with scorpion turret), But how do they get a dev kit if you cant get it?


    Some of my friends says that you need to mod your Halo 3 Disk other says that you need a second xbox and mod your second xbox, so what of these things you need to do to actually mod .map?

    Lets put it this way

    If some1 is modding a .map file and are shooting different projectiles and warthog's with tank turrets and such etc..Then they have to have a dev-kit to be able to mod

    Second thing..Alot of people are fake..They will have it look like they are modding but alot of it is glitching...Like Sligstorm

    I know you need a dev kit for that, and that its not possible to play it online becouse other people need a devkit to to see this (or something like that)

    @ YOOOOO

    but how didt they gett the dev-kit? becouse there is no way they got it from the internet.

    Yes, you can find them you just have to know where to look. Don't waste your time and money trying to get one just to mod H3..

    well I wasnt planning to ask you for that.

    why not? Halo 3 is the game to mod characters for online playing as the flood and the other people as marines/odst is always cool, make it foggy on one of the maps and lets infaction beplayed.

    But something else now, I have heard that you can add AI in Halo 3 ODST is this true or not?

    I don't know anything about ODST..But Dev kits cost $1000+ and by buying one causes the prices to rise for people who need one to actually 'use'..You wanna pay that with the possibility that you can't mod H3? Yes it is possible to mod H3 but do you personally know how to? Also you can't go on live with a dev kit..

    well I can mod halo 3 but random stuff spawning is nothing so that's why I want a Dev-Kit I don't care how much it cost or if the price gets bigger, and I know u cant get online but a local network can right?

    No, there's partner.net but you can't play with anyone on a normal 360..And most people on partner net don't use it to mod H3..Plus do you know what a modded .xex is? Or how to mod one? Btw, usermap modding is different than .map..

    You arent going to be told how to mod you XeX

    You will end up paying 1k+ for a brick, unless you know how to use one, which I doubt.

    IF you end up getting the SDK as well and the modded XeX, you cant play with anyone, only other dev kits

    You dont care about spending 1k to make homebrew on retail 360s take LONGER than it already has? When homebrew is possible on retail 360s then modding Halo 3 will be possible on retail 360s.

    And you will spend 1k+ in order to play Halo 3 by yourself? Just unplug your ethernet cable and smack around your GPU to mess up graphics. BAM, you are doing exactly what a dev kit will do
