How To Mod On Halo 3
Modding Halo3 on your Xbox360 can be really easy to do. The fastest route is by working with your PC and USB drive. This method keep you from having to resort to opening your hard drive or making too complicated of alterations to your game of Halo3 without having to make major changes to your Xbox360. So, without any further ado lets get your Halo3 modded and running on your Xbox360.
What You Need
- An Xbox360, with Halo 3 game save data on it.
- A PC with xport and forge 2.6 installed on it
- A USB Drive
- Make sure your system it up to date. If you need to run any updates before you attempt the mod, or you run the risk of them being lost in the update. Once this is done you can go ahead and plug in your USB drive into one of the USB ports on the Xbox360. The Xbox360 will now attempt to format your memory stick. Allow the Xbox360 to format your USB drive or you will not be able to take the needed files to mod Halo3.
- Once your drive is formatted you can go to your hard drive and copy the data to your USB drive. Then unplug your USB drive once the transfer of data is complete.
- Plug the USB drive into your computer. Sorry Mac users, this will only work with a PC. Start explorer and open the USB drive on your computer. Then find the file that is labeled Halo3.
- Open xport. This should provide you with a list of files from the game. If you have multiple maps find the one that you want to mod. The simplest way to do that is to look for the last date modified. This should be the last time you played on this map. Open the map file and you will see individual item files. Once you find the files that you want it is easiest simply to drag them to the desktop.
- Open up Forge 2.6. and drag in the files you want to modify. From here you can switch in and out items and elements that you want to add to the map. When you are done making your trades click on save, and then move the files back to their original locations. Rehash and Resign in Forge 2.6 to complete
Just bear in mind that modding is technically against the end user license agreement. If you take these maps onto multiplayer and you are caught you run the risk of having your live account taken away.
