Before I start I understand im like 13-14 years behind but...

im prepping for MCC(so I can mod h2a MCC when it comes on the PC). With that being said im also having problems finding any tutorials because a lot of the 12+ year old links are now dead.

I have Insolence. I can move tags. I can move single player weapons into multiplayer maps(like adding fuel rod gun/major sentinel beam) and Entity reads them just fine. But when i attempt to move some tags..say Magnum or SMG into 0b_deltacontrol
, Entity starts spewing out errors.

I know one can inject tags and expand maps(for example the Warthog run video contains the warthog that was manually injected) but I have no idea what I am doing. I understand that when i moved a tag from one map into another i increased the map's size and I guess I need to change its Meta Size? but for MP maps I pasted like 4 different tags and I didnt need to change anything they loaded just fine. Im at a loss what to do

after doing some research and like 30x map crashes i found out that Insolence shouldn't be used in tag moving. That I need to use Entity only. But following this tutorial http://old.halomods.com/forums/viewtopic.php?f=88&t=58508 my maps still crash and freeze. What I did was clone a Character palette with Entity(for an extra character slot) in 06a_sentinelwalls(Sacred Icon), port the juggernaut out of o7b_forerunnership and injected the tag into sacred icon, changed that extra character palette I copied into the juggernaut and replaced some flood combat form characters in the scenario/squads with juggernaunts. I then resigned the map with Entity. But then my map either fails to load/freezes/or has glitchy textures and later freezes.

What im asking is ...does anyone know how to expand maps properly? Or how to ad tags? I just want to be able to port the flood juggernaut/weapons that arent in some maps into other SP maps.(sp only)

Have you tried the 2.1.25 version we have here? You can't find it anywhere else.

Looks like the latest you have is 2.1.19, which we have 2.1.25, which was specially made by Troy to fix an error that I was having.

Mega links? Can you show me which ones you are referring to? I believe those are all Google Drive links unless there was a mega link in there mixed with it. Please go to that thread and multi-quote select which ones you can't download.

I think it's user error tbh. You are the only one that has had an issue. And the mega links are the mod pack downloads iirc. Tho, I think they are also mirrored on web archive.
