Mod Maps with DotHalo

DotHalo offers another Halo 2 map-editing option.

DotHalo is a new version of a Halo map editor formerly known as H2Edit (Halo 2 Edit). As with ADI and Ch2r, DotHalo can be used to alter various aspects of maps. For example, this app allow you to play with textures. DotHalo is available from the HaloMods Download page (http://files.halomods.com/). Because the location of the file moves around from time to time, be sure to look for sticky posts in the forums—these are posts that are kept at the top of the forum so they are easier to find. Figure 6-10 shows the main window of DotHalo; Figure 6-11 shows the DotHalo tag editor.

DotHalo can also produce patch (.PPF) files. These patch files allow modders to store their changes and then apply them to a .MAP file using a tool called PPF-O-Matic. Since all of the map changes are stored in the patch, modders can distribute their mods without having to send around large .MAP files.
