Or any documentation on the layout anywhere?

Gamesaves are just straight memory dumps. Reverse engineer the game state, and you in turn, reverse engineer the game saves.

While there are some differences in Xbox to PC (eg, PC's object memory pool is twice the size found in the Xbox, IIRC), our OpenSauce Halo1_CE codebase has game state structures documented for the PC version of the game.

I guess I used the wrong name, I was meaning to say profiles and gametype settings instead of campaign progress, unless those are also game states. Does anyone have any starter info on these or do I need to reverse them from scratch?

Game variants, Ctrl+F "s_game_variant", and that's the structure (there may be one or two differences from the Xbox version though). I don't have anything on the profile files though.

Thanks a lot, that'll be really helpful.
