If anyone knows of another way to FTP to the original Xbox other than Flash FXP, I've got some maps on there from back in the day still. I think I've got some on my 360 as well.

Let me know, due to bugs on 7s due to cloudflare having issues with heavily modified threads, I can't edit the thread like I used to be able to. When I make a big change in the thread and save it, cloudflare basically refuses the saved changes as it thinks it's a DDoS attack or something and my changes get met with a error and refuses to save the thread (7s staff doesn't know a fix for this). I've had a few packs sent my way I need to go back through dms and just upload them to my mega and mediafire and that's assuming those links are still up. I almost completely discontinued my H1 repo of mappacks, it's up but I wont have any more major changes on my end as all the mappack combos I was working on all got wiped due to a failed drive and I do not have the time or motivation to go back and do all of that again.
Post automatically merged:

I've reached out to a few people via DM's but if anybody has ANY mappacks not archived here please DM me again and send me links. These last few years have been a huge pain in my ***. Failed drive after failed drive, 7s thread bugs, etc the list goes on.
Not to mention work, and family takes most of my priority so I just never got the time to back everything up.
T Terminator Zero I have dm'd via here and xbox
Vapidsplash Vapidsplash I have dm'd here as well asked around for your discord acc.
wparti00 - aka Shadow07 - Wouldn't let me tag you, but I have your complete edition mainmenu edits downloaded, thank you for keeping those links active, they will be updated in the pack itself with credit given to you hopefully by 8/10/2023.

To anybody else I forgot to DM, I hope you at least get this notification on this thread reply, assuming you watch this thread and or have replied here once before.

Quick Question:
There is a file titled, "H2CEGametypesAR". When I unzipped it it contained multiple zipped files within it. Do I need to do something specific with this file? Again I'm very new to all of this, so any information or instruction helps!

Another Question:
There are multiple map packs that have multiple xbe files. 1.0 / 1.5 etc. How do I know which one to choose to change to default.xbe? Lastly, what is AI enabled?

I'm sorry for the plethora of questions. I just found about all of this today and this is by far one of my favorite games growing up as a kid, and I'd love to explore all of these new maps and such! Thank you again for all of your help.

Insignia is getting really close with the Online ability. Right now you got xlink kai and I'm not sure if XBConnect is still a thing, but you'd need a pc, and your xbox hooked up with ethernet. You'd connect on the server on the PC, then search system link and you'll find the game

Sorry everyone I don't much keep up with comments on this thread these days. But a small update.

Halo 2 Ported Mappack has been updated. (Vista/Custom Maps Ported To Xbox Sample Mappack) If you have 1.1/1.5 update installed you must delete it as some maps freeze when loading on those updates, so stick to 1.0
All these maps were ported by grimdoomer with his tool that is still in the works with a unknown release date. Probably another 4 years LOL. Joking but in all seriousness there is no ETA on a release as he only works on the tool in his spare time which seems to be far and few inbetween. He also shuffles other projects so yeah. Anyways the original release included these maps

v1 - original release
1. h2vh2x
2. Battle Beach
3. Icefields Beta v1.0

The new update to the maps include
1. h2vh2x
2. Battle Beach
3. Icefields Beta v1.0
4. Street Sweeper
5. d2_coast_01 (v1) (half life 2)
6. d2_coast_01 (v2) (half life 2)
--digsite tag repo--
7. 03_ascension
8. 03_colossus
9. 03_headlong
10. 03_lockout
11. 03_midship
12. 03_waterworks

Please be warned these are still early conversions so expect bugs and issues such as objects missing, texture issues, spawn issues, decorators missing, crashes, collisionless objects, the list goes on!

As a side note insignia is doing a public beta for halo 2 soon! So as a friendly reminder and warning. DO NOT USE THE CHEATING PACKS ON INSIGNIA OR XLINK KAI

Redherring32 VinnyHaw I tagged you two because both of you seem to care about halo 2 as much as I do, enjoy!
DO NOT USE CHEATING PACKS ON INSIGNIA OR XLINK KAI!
Majority of these mappacks DO NOT work on insignia!



Halo 2: Modded Map-Pack Repository
Down below will be download links to every UPDATED mappack. In other words, I myself have updated a good bit of these so if you have them already, it's strongly recommended you download these also.
MEGA:
- Mega does have a download limit (4.5-5gb) max, after you reach that limit you have to wait 4-8 hours before you can continue downloading.

You are not to link the links anywhere but to here, sharing any of my links on other sites publicly will result in consequences. If you wish, you can re-direct to this thread and this thread only, do not share my links.

SPECIAL THANKS!

- All original map/ map-pack / tool creators and anybody that has helped contribute to halo 2 modding, and the preservation of halo 2's modding past, present and future!
& anybody else who has helped along the way!

I CabooseSayzWTF Salute Every Single One of You!
Ooh Rah!!

TROUBLESHOOTING TIPS
1. Dirty Disc Errors: Clear Cache, and make sure your font files are not in 100+ folders, like each font in its own folder, this causes dirty disk and invis text errors.

2. Damaged Content/ Damaged DLC: Most mappacks have 50 maps included, with that said dlc map slots were taken up, so you get damaged content error messages. The fix for this is simple, either delete your DLC installation via clearing out the halo 2 and halo 2 content folders in Udata/Tdata as well as clearing cache or you can just ignore the message, also make sure you have no corrupted gamesaves, profiles, or gametypes which also cause damaged content error messages.

3. If a modded mappack folder name has (- . , ! @ # $ %) any special symbols please rename the folder as in remove the special symbols as it will cause alot of issues.

4. In any modded mappack, if they come with more than 1 .xbe (1.0 or 1.5 XBE's) be sure to choose which xbe you want to use and rename it to [default.xbe] to avoid game boot up issues that could occur.

HALO MAP-PACK LAUNCHER (Xbox OG ONLY)
This is a homebrew app but it goes in your games folder on your modded xbox og. It's a A.I.O Solution for launching halo modded mappacks correctly.
View the thread: HERE for more info.


Halo 2: Complete Edition
Halo 2: Complete Edition - [Click here to view this link]
This Halo 2 consist of the full original halo 2 experience, however modified so you don't have to have your normal halo 2 anymore or the dlc installer for that matter! This compilation is to make the normal halo 2 and the dlc installer both obsolete! All dlc included in this pack, all maps, everything you love about the original halo 2 is right here! As a bonus to make it a normal and complete experience, I have included the dlc gamemodes as well. I also included EVERY QUICK OPTIONS MOD TO DATE. SO in Mp the quick options list is extensively modified and much bigger in a pregame lobby to make your gametype edits. I even added some custom timers such as instant respawn, CTF timers, Territories timers, assault timers. Just keep note of this though, even though the full experience has the dlc, you can not play dlc maps with players that are using the dlc installer. So whoever you want to play with give this pack to them! Let's make the DLC Installer and Normal Halo 2 OBSOLETE TOGETHER!, This right here is all you need for original halo 2 play.
DO NOT USE THIS IF ON INSIGNIA (Unless Custom/Private Game)
You wont be able to connect to people if they have the original DLC installed.

Mimesis: Reborn

Legendary Mappack

Killjoys V2 (Halo 3 Themed Mappack - Updated)
Killjoy V2.1: [Click here to view this link]
I added 4 more halo 3 themed maps to the mappack.
EDIT: When you download this pack take the v2.1 out of the folder name or you will get errors when you FTP. Such as fonts becoming folders and fonts not working in the game.

Allied Map-Pack

United Map-Pack v1.6.1 (Unofficial)
United v1.6.1: [Click here to view this link]
This pack has been re-built for the most part. I added back all cut maps from v1-v1.5. Just missing 1 map.
Credit to Anubis and DoorM4n for the patches. If it weren't for them this mappack wouldn't be here at all.
v1.6.1 Adds the rest of the cut maps as well as map images and a lite new modded mainmenu. Enjoy!

DoorM4ns Legacy v1.1
DoorM4ns Legacy: [Click here to view this link]
The maps were made by DoorM4n, the maps were supplied to me from Redherring32 and Anubis ,I thought DoorM4n deserved his own special mappack just because his maps were so freaking awesome!
EDIT: When you download this pack take the v1.1 out of the folder name or you will get errors when you FTP. Such as fonts becoming folders and fonts not working in the game.

MiniGame Map-Pack v1.1
MiniGame v1.1: [Click here to view this link]
These are racing maps, dodgeball, demo derby, soccer, ski, boxing etc. Pretty much smashed together small mappacks.
EDIT: When you download this pack take the v1.1 out of the folder name or you will get errors when you FTP. Such as fonts becoming folders and fonts not working in the game.

XLink-Kai Definitive Halo 2 v1.6 & v1.7
XLink-Kai Def v1.6: HERE
XLink-Kai Def v1.7: [Click here to view this link]
This Halo 2 consist of the best user made maps from every Halo 2 modded map pack and other stand-alone modded maps. As voted by members of every Xlink-Kai discord, they include maps best fit for Xlink-Kai gameplay, from competitive to a few fun maps. 12 of which are updated to include Halo 3 weapons. Also, are several better "Lockout" maps on this Halo 2. So hopefully if it spreads enough, we no longer have to play on the same Lockout 100 times a week.

1.6 Info
This pack has accomplished its goal as being 100% System Link Compatible. While there are a few bugs left that couldn't be tackled, the team has worked countless hours, days, and months to bring you something everybody can enjoy. We hope you enjoy the map-pack as mush as we did creating it.
- This is the very first 100% System Link Compatible modded mappack in halo 2 history, besides cheating mappacks and Halo 2: Combat Evolved. Combat Evolved at its core is 98% vanilla maps with halo 1 styled modifications added. While Definitive pack is a mappack that was created with Kai 100% in mind and maps voted by members of discord purely, without all of our beta testers and staff team this would of never happened, and I CabooseSayzWTF thanks every single one of you that played a role in helping this mappack ever shed the light of day.

1.7 info
Made some minor quality of life edits to a few maps, re-enabled the drop pod "weapon" on one of the zanzibar maps.
Added a sniper nest to one of the maps. Look it's been a long time since I looked at the changelog. Enjoy I guess.

Halo 2: Online Coop Campaign Mod - Broken(Updated)
H2 Online Coop Campaign Mod BBP Edition: [Click here to view this link]
I made a new mainmenu, proper map listing's, added god mode to every map to avoid a few issues. Added helpful map descriptions telling you what team to play on and or what gametype to play the map on. Added weapons near player spawns on maps that refused to force the player to spawn with a weapon, and more. This is my Broken But Playable Edition, enjoy.

Halo 2: Prophet/Bomber Edition
Prophet/Bomber Edition: [Click here to view this link]
This mappack is probably one of the worst I have ever seen tbh. So much cringe!
Anyways since it is a mappack, and does have some "Okay" modded maps, it will be added to the archive.

Halo 2: Combat Evolved (Most Recent Newest Version)
Halo 2: Combat Evolved Latest Version: [Click here to view this link]
Gametypes For This Pack: [Click here to view this link]
It's strongly recommended that you download this version. This is the most up to date version. Has actual Halo 1 assault rifles, pistols, ui edits, better balancing, and much much more. Also grab the gametypes.(Gametypes go in 4d530064 or 06f300fa in UDATA) depending on the xbe you use.

Halo 2-009[Mage Edition]
Halo 2-009[Mage Edition]: [Click here to view this link]
This mappack has sat on my drive for a year or so now. It's not special in anyway nor does it really add anything new to the bunch.
I forgot who gave it to me but it's dated all the way back to 2009. Originally this mappack was [Unmarked] until I opened the xbe to rename it
and it showed Halo 2-009[Mage Edition]. So it's as is. [If a map doesn't work then it doesn't work, i haven't tested this pack fully]
- I can only assume this was somebodies personal favorite modded maps compilation.

Vista/Custom Maps Ported To Xbox [Sample Test Pack]
Sample Test Conversion: [Click here to view this link]
These were ported to xbox by Grimdoomer with a tool he has been working on.
The tool is NOT FINISHED.
These test maps are by no means guaranteed to be SLC [System Link Compatible].
The maps are missing alot, textures could be wrong, weapons could be missing. Spawns could be wack.
Objects could be missing, spawns could be broken, the list goes on.
This was all very early conversions. Tool for converting maps and editing maps etc is still in the works.
If you have title update 1.1/1.5 installed You must remove them as some maps only work on 1.0. I do not know why but leaving this as a warning!

Cheating Mappacks!
[Do not use these packs on Xlink Kai in a server that does not support modding. Do not use cheating packs on insignia at all ever, you will be banned for such antics. - You Have Been Warned]

Everything here is "CUSTOM MADE/MODIFIED, from the map files to the custom xbe executables.
Copyright Disclaimer under section 107 of the Copyright Act 1976, allowance is made for “fair use” for purposes such as criticism, comment, news reporting, teaching, scholarship, education and research.

Fair use is a use permitted by copyright statute that might otherwise be infringing.

Non-profit, educational or personal use tips the balance in favor of fair use.

FAIR USE DEFINITION:

(Source: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Fair_use)

Fair use is a doctrine in the United States copyright law that allows limited use of copyrighted material without requiring permission from the rights holders, such as for commentary, criticism, news reporting, research, teaching or scholarship. It provides for the legal, non-licensed citation or incorporation of copyrighted material in another author’s work under a four-factor balancing test. The term “fair use” originated in the United States. A similar principle, fair dealing, exists in some other common law jurisdictions. Civil law jurisdictions have other limitations and exceptions to copyright.

U.S. COPYRIGHT OFFICE- FAIR USE DEFINITION

(Source: http://www.copyright.gov/fls/fl102.html)

One of the rights accorded to the owner of copyright is the right to reproduce or to authorize others to reproduce the work in copies or phonorecords. This right is subject to certain limitations found in sections 107 through 118 of the copyright law (title 17, U.S. Code). One of the more important limitations is the doctrine of “fair use”. The doctrine of fair use has developed through a substantial number of court decisions over the years and has been codified in section 107 of the copyright law.

Section 107 contains a list of the various purposes for which the reproduction of a particular work may be considered fair, such as criticism, comment, news reporting, teaching, scholarship, and research. Section 107 also sets out in four factors to be considered in determining whether or not a particular use is fair:

1. The purpose and character of the use, including whether such use is of commercial nature or is for nonprofit educational purposes

2. The nature of the copyrighted work

3. The amount and substantiality of the portion used in relation to the copyrighted work as a whole

4. The effect of the use upon the potential market for, or value of, the copyrighted work

The distinction between fair use and infringement may be unclear and not easily defined. There is no specific number of words, lines, or notes that may safely be taken without permission. Acknowledging the source of the copyrighted material does not substitute for obtaining permission.

The 1961 Report of the Register of Copyrights on the General Revision of the U.S. Copyright Law cites examples of activities that courts have regarded as fair use: “quotation of excerpts in a review or criticism for purposes of illustration or comment; quotation of short passages in a scholarly or technical work, for illustration or clarification of the author’s observations; use in a parody of some of the content of the work parodied; summary of an address or article, with brief quotations, in a news report; reproduction by a library of a portion of a work to replace part of a damaged copy; reproduction by a teacher or student of a small part of a work to illustrate a lesson; reproduction of a work in legislative or judicial proceedings or reports; incidental and fortuitous reproduction, in a newsreel or broadcast, of a work located in the scene of an event being reported.”

Copyright protects the particular way an author has expressed himself. It does not extend to any ideas, systems, or factual information conveyed in the work.

The safest course is always to get permission from the copyright owner before using copyrighted material. The Copyright Office cannot give this permission.

When it is impracticable to obtain permission, use of copyrighted material should be avoided unless the doctrine of fair use would clearly apply to the situation. The Copyright Office can neither determine if a certain use may be considered fair nor advise on possible copyright violations. If there is any doubt, it is advisable to consult an attorney.
