PostSubject: Halo 3 Acension Modding Tool.   Mon Jan 16, 2012 11:22 pm

If your having trouble with plug-in's please
scroll down further to DL them and read the ENTIRE post before you even
attempt this


Remember the first part of this tutorial was made for the Beta, read on further for modding the full game

You Need a Jtag for this.

Download Ascension
megaupload.com/?d=3LDN6NJK

Ascension is a tool based off the Halo 3 tool Alteration, for use with
Halo Reach Beta/Game, reusing much of the source code, but developing
new ideas slowly into a new framework. Opening it up you'll find alot of
the same ideas, just incorperated differently.


The program will can autoupdate itself, thus users will not fall behind.


I'm aware of the bug that poking over and over, or too many connections
to the Xbox will eventually crash the program. I'll be fixing that soon,
so no worries.




This time around I'll do less talking, and just more of a release, so
here's the application for download.. Have fun playing around with it,
if questions are asked here I'll try to answer them as much as I can.


__________________________________________________________________________________

Unsigned and Force-Load XEXs

Using these XEXs you just load the XEX corresponding with which map
you'd like to play. Force loaded maps are local and not online or
splitscreen, and you can do this after the beta expires, it's purpose is
to allow modding and research to be tested. ff10_prototype.map is a
firefight map, so you can choose your loadout. However AI will not spawn
when force loaded. All other maps will be loaded as Multiplayer, Slayer
maps.


To load the map, just be signed into an account, (offline) and launch
the XEX, an after the intro videos, the game will appear to freeze but
that's just the map loading. Once the map loads, you just need to wait
to spawn and you're good. If you start up the XEX without being signed
in, you will be asked to use a gamertag or a temporary profile. Using a
temporary profile will allow you to continue to the mainmenu. Signing in
will launch the map.


Note: A patching program was not released as it was in the past because
F&F beta and the ODST beta are slightly different. This is also why
the DLLs were included, because without them, the F&F beta would
have glitchy sounds. This was based off of the ODST Reach Beta XEX.

Enjoy.

__________________________________________________________________________________

This tutorial will
teach you how to unlock the Halo: Reach beta on your JTAG'd Xbox 360. It
will allow you to run around on all maps including two that haven't
been released yet(one of which is a Firefight map) and will also make
modifying those .map files possible.

Requirements:

A JTAG'd Xbox 360 or a development kit

Halo: Reach Beta(Available for download May 3rd)

Forceload XEXs

X360Gamehack

WxPirs

Auto Xbins to download XEXmenu or Xplorer360

Google is your friend!

Once you have all those files, you may start. You will need to use all
of them and if you are missing one, then you can not complete this
tutorial.



Downloading the Beta


1. Go here and sign into your account and download the beta if you
haven't already. Then turn your Xbox on and allow the beta to download.

2. Once the beta is done downloading, either put your hardrive on your
JTAG'd Xbox and boot into XEXmenu and FTP the 4D53885C folder to your
computer. Or you can connect your hardrive to your computer and open
Xplorer360. Then in Xplorer360 go to Partition
3>Content>00000000000>4D53885C>00080000>725EC55D552A4DEDDE69466A0BA490B2CB496EF74D
and extract that file to somewhere on your computer.



Extracting the maps, default.xex, waves, etc.


1. Now open WxPirs.

2. In the top left hand corner, click file>open or click the folder with an arrow above it button.

3. Locate your where you saved your Halo 3 Beta to(aka the 725EC55D552A4DEDDE69466A0BA490B2CB496EF74D file). And open the file.

4. You should now be presented with bink, maps, and waves folders and a default.xex, WaveShell-Xbox.dll and WavesLibDLL.dll

5. Click file>extract all or click the repeating floppy disc icon in the top left hand corner.

6. Pick a folder to extract all of those files and folders to and wait until they are all done(it was will say

"done" next to every folder and file).



Downloading and signing the Forceload XEXs

(Credit to DeToX for the XEXs and Halo: Reach modding research)


1. Download the Forceload XEXs

2. Extract all contents of the halo_reach_beta_forceload.rar to a folder.

3. Run X360Gamehack, and point it to that folder.

4. Use the following settings and hit "Fix"

5. Delete the files with the .orig extension, they are no longer needed. (Optional)



Putting the Beta on your Hardrive and Playing it


1. Run FreestyleDash or XeXMenu, and access your xbox via FTP

2. Open or create Hdd1:GamesReach Beta

3. FTP the following files: reach-30_settlement.xex,
reach-ff10_prototype.xex, reach-20_sword_slayer.xex,
reach-70_boneyard.xex, reach-mainmenu.xex, WaveShell-Xbox.dll,
WavesLibDLL.dll, and waves folder that you got from the
halo_reach_beta_forceload.rar. Make sure that you put EVERY file that
came in the halo_reach_beta_forceload.rar folder.

4. Once those files are on your hard drive, go to the folder that
contains all the files and folders that you extracted using WxPirs. Take
the "maps" and "bink" folders and all of their contents and put those
in your Halo Reach Beta folder on your hard drive.


Alternative (Xplorer360):


1. Open Xplorer360 and navigate to your Partition 3 and make a new folder called "Games" if you don't already have that folder.

2. Inside that folder make a new folder called "Halo Reach Beta".

3. Inside of the Halo Reach Beta folder, put your
reach-30_settlement.xex, reach-ff10_prototype.xex,
reach-20_sword_slayer.xex, reach-70_boneyard.xex, reach-mainmenu.xex,
WaveShell-Xbox.dll, WavesLibDLL.dll, and waves folder that you got from
the halo_reach_beta_forceload.rar. Make sure that you put EVERY file
that came in the halo_reach_beta_forceload.rar folder.

4. Once those files are on your hard drive, go to the folder that
contains all the files and folders that you extracted using WxPirs. Take
the "maps" and "bink" folders and all of their contents and put those
in your Halo Reach Beta folder on your hard drive.
