6. Hacking Setup and Software > 51. Use an Open Source Map Editor

Use an Open Source Map Editor

Use the Ch2r open source application to hack your Halo 2 maps.

Ch2r (http://sourceforge.net/projects/ch2r/) is another popular Halo 2 map editor. C2morg and other modders use Ch2r as their primary tool. The interesting thing about Ch2r is that it is an entirely open source application. The project leader for the Ch2r app is a modder who calls himself XIU.

According to XIU, Chr2 was meant to be a tool for people who wanted to learn C# and Halo 2 Modding. Although the program has been successful, not many people have contributed to the code. Since the Ch2r team has always tried to help the community, most of the features were requests from users. Just like ADI [Hack #50] , Ch2r supports plug-ins. XIU worked with Iron Forge to add a plug-in system that maps out every bit of information about the metadata of each tag.
