Halo Combat Evolved XBOX Restoration Mod V. 1.0

-Created by xBlueXFoxx-

-Details-
What this mod does is patch a few things missing in the ported PC version
that were removed from the XBOX version of Halo.

-Repairs Halo multi's, fixing the shiney ring that existed in the XBOX version.
-Repairs Longsword multi, it's shiney again like the XBOX version.
-Repairs Assult Rifle multi, fixing the specular that was on the original assult rifle.
-Repairs Flag Pole Multi, fixes the shine that was on the original flag in the MP game "Capture the Flag".
-Repairs Fuel Rod multi, however you were never able to pick up the Fuel Rod in the XBOX version, there was an existing multi, now the Fuel Rod Cannon has a light shine to it.
-Restores the old energy recharge effect, the xbox version used to have yellow flare rings float around you as your shields recharged.
-Restores the old FOV, the "Field of View" in the PC version was much lower than the XBOX version, and does not really look good or properly aim to the crosshairs.

-Dimmed down corroded texture, in the UI, the xbox version never had a corroded texture on it, it was added in the PC version to add a bit of detail to the ring,
probably to make up for the missing shine, I dimmed it down to brighten the ring a little.

-Blood Gulch grass and sand texture scaling, I scaled these down a little bit to be a bit more realistic and show a bit more resolution, to a more proper scale,
just makes the graphics a little better, we are PC gamers aren't we? ;)/>


-Tools needed-
1. PPF-O-Matic (Included)
2. An IQ of at least 20


-How to install-
Step 1. Go to your Halo directory (Default: X:\Program Files\Microsoft Games\Halo) and delete the files Bungie.bik, Gearbox.bik, and mgs.bik
Step 2. Place the new Bungie.bik into the halo directory, the new file is located in the folder "Bungie video"
Step 3. Open PPF-O-Matic located in the PPF-O-Matic folder, and begin patching each map file.
Step 4. Play

Note: If you do not know how to apply a PPF file, please visit the link below. Credits to Phil for the awesome tutorial.

However I did not use Explosive American's restoration patch, I created my own multi's, I would still like to credit him for the inspiration!


I have taken the time to create a new Halo restoration patch, inspired by Explosive American I wanted to improve off his patch, all the content made here was made by me but I still give credits to him for the idea. So what I have done was restored a few more things, energy recharge, field of view, rod fuel and such. I also took a bit of time to create a new intro video, a little remake of the old XBOX Microsoft intro, just need to replace bungie.bik with the new one.

Read the Read Me to ensure you install all the new features!
