    Is it possible to obtain the source code for Halo 3? From the disk or any other methods?


    I heard that people were looking at the Halo 3 Beta source code to find things out about the game before it came out. Does anyone know how they were able to do this?

    Thanks in advance.

    The source code for the halo 3 is only available to the games developers, the game disk contains the compiled source code, or xbox executable file.

    The people you're referring to probably dumped the betas xex from their HDs and sifted through it with a hex editor.

    impossible to obtain any high-level source code such as c++. The only code that you could look at is the raw PPC assembly code of the game. If you strip the entire XEX2 header (leaving you with just the original PE), you could disassemble it in IDA.

    Unless you can read PPC, you won't understand a thing you find.
