A Halo CE Roadtrip Redux
Posted By: siliconmaster482 <>Date: 10/1/08 10:54 p.m.

About 4 years ago, after attempting my own map for Halo Custom Edition and realizing how complicated the process was, I was impressed enough to make a sort of tribute to the mapmakers who have made the CE community so fun to be a part of over the years. At the time, I had a very poor computer setup, with an ancient nvidia graphics card and no ram whatsoever, so the original Roadtrip, though soid in concept, lacked the quality to accurately show off the CE maps.

Now, with a system light years ahead of the old one, I've done my best to remake the old video in larger resolution, full graphics, and nicer-looking maps where needed. Ironically, even with 4 gb of RAM and a nvidia 8800GT I've found that the portalling system (or something) in CE prevents completely lagless filming. Some maps became nearly unusable when trying to move across a strangely portalled area.

The original video, for reference:

Note: Halomovies doesn't seem to want to work for me right now- the streaming doesn't load. D: Here is the youtube version, though the audio does not sync properly, unfortunately:

I made 3 versions of Redux:

filefront, 720p wmv:;11950054;/fileinfo.html

The general fan base might have moved on to Halo 3, but CE still has its interesting features.
