Andy 'Bravo' Dudynsky Leaves 343 to Be Closer to Family
(MacGyver10 21:36:49 UTC) (permalink)
Big news yesterday came down that Andy Dudynsky is leaving the halls of 343 Industries to pursue other interests. The guy got his feet wet in Halo as a member of the eSports community, and it was awesome to see him morph and mature into a community leader helping guide us through Halo news and games. Best wishes, Bravo!
Rockslider Has New Videos of Merging Silver and Gold Elites, as Well as Pillar of Autumn Crewman
Rockslider continues to put out impressive content with a couple of new videos! Their first shows off a new color of merged elites (as well as a how-to to accomplish these merged Covenant corpses!) using merged silver and gold elites in Halo: CE. The next one seems a little creepy to me using human, but hey, the effect of merging POA crewman is pretty cool, and fun as well when they start using the grunts to help!

Catching Up with The Halo Community Update 05/24/18 - 'Duty in Battle'
Well summer has started for the MacGyver family, but Halo news didn't get the memo to slow down (even more so than it already has during this dryspell of mainline Halo game news)! Thanks to davidfuchs for the heads up on last week's Halo Community Update! Looks like the new Fireteam arcade game is mentioned with a FAQ (canon story, coming to places other than Dave & Busters/North America), some details on upcoming e-sports stuff and MCC community playdate all in one place.

It might be time for cake.
Wow. Been a little while since I posted here (thanks, MacGyver10, for making that possible!), but a recent email from Stuntmutt, coupled with the 19th anniversary of this site, made for a pretty compelling siren call. Swing by the One One Se7en page for a new guest strip, and Stuntmutt's response. (We haven't accepted guest strips for that comic since 2004. We had to sweep a lot of dust out to even find the right buttons.) And to everyone still stopping by for a little bit of Halo news now and then, thanks for all the memories!

Sparky of halomodtesters Releases Kit for Modding Just About Everything via Halo: CE on Mac
Sparky of halomodtesters on YouTube is putting a lot of work into some pretty cool stuff for Halo: CE, particularly on Mac in this case. Here's what they had to say:
I've been working hard on my Zeus-related projects as I mentioned over the years. The Zeus projects were experiments, and they are generally concluded.
Today, I am announcing an application that I am developing to replace the Halo Custom Edition Halo Editing Kit programs. This all-in-one application is called "silence". I frequently post results of the day's work on this application on my YouTube channel, "halomodtesters".
The application is ready for a user test, so I simply recorded a video of its current capability of reading .actor tag files (used by the Halo Editing Kit).
Here is a beta tester build, with fully-featured .actor tag file format support. The .zip archive is encrypted. The password is "beta tester". Thanks for your interest! (MacGyver10 15:03:43 UTC) (permalink)

Rockslider Shows Off a Cool, New Halo Combat Evolved Glitch in Merging Covenant Bodies
Rockslider put together a new video in our forum showing how to merge the bodies of dead Covenant and marines in Halo CE's campaign. It really makes for some neat moments in separating the models with plasma grenades and rocket blasts! Not sure if anyone has really shown this off before either, as it seems to be a cool, new glitch for this 17 year old game! (MacGyver10 15:35:53 UTC) (permalink)
