hello. i want to mod halo 3 maps on the halo 3 disk just like i modded halo 2 maps on halo 2 vista disk with gravemind mod tool. i think that i need a dual layer disk drive to read the halo 3 game disk but even if a dual layer disk drive reads halo 3 map files from the halo 3 disk i still need a program to mod the maps. i tried opening nimbus r3 on my win7 os but it wont open. any response is appreciated. thank you

You need an RGH to do any .map modding. You then need to use a program called Assembly or you could use Alteration too.

yes, i need a rgh jtag box to be shielded against being banned but what does program assembly or program alteration do? mod maps like gravemind and if so would i need a dual layer dvd drive to read halo 3?

also everyone keeps telling me nimbus r3 mods in real time and does not require hard code map modding like gravemind. is this true?

I have no clue what gravemind is. Anyways though if you want to use Assembly, Alteration, or Nimbus, those are all RTE (real-time-editing) tools that require a JTAG/RGH. You can't mod Halo 3 in that capacity otherwise.

gravemind works like this... its a program that you open up .map files then mod .map files. the process for halo 2 vista was to mod .map files with gravemind then go to the folder where the maps are stored then replace original maps with modded maps. done. game loads modded maps instead of original maps. how does Assembly, Alteration, or Nimbus work?

The same way but you need to have an rgh to exploit the console to run unsigned code, without it no .map mods will work for it. Not even ISO modding works for halo without an rgh or jtag. Basically everything after that should be the same as the h2 editing tools, or somewhat similar.

I don't think as of right now anyone has any paid recovery spots for the game. Sometimes people host on Halo 3, but not much as of lately. If you're going to be getting a JTAG/RGH, don't pay someone for something you can do yourself.

i downloaded halo 3 maps from xbox live to usb device then opened up alteration .map editing tool on my computer. when i wanted to move the maps to the computer from the usb device this is what i saw... Content folder that has sub folders. the sub folders held the maps but the maps had names like this 36F0FA570C01BA9F0FED91C6FAEDF2035AAACC244D with type File. alteration could not open the map file. any ideas to solve this ?

Never really thought about modding DLC maps, let alone ones from XBL. Try opening up the container in Horizon and going to its contents to see if the .map files are in there. If you were to mod those .map files, make backups of the original and if you try injecting back into the container, make sure you save, rehash, and resign. Not sure if that would even work though to be honest with you. Professional Professional , any ideas?

yeah i can rehash and resign with modio. there is a tool that used to download .map files but the program says that the server is down. there are no .map files inside the folder
