I feel like I'd mostly be embarrassed to go over it ;p

Seeing your avatar takes me so far back, ScottyGEE. Really hoping you're doing well.

Would love to see more familiar faces on Facebook, rather than news websites talking about likely prison terms.

Send me a PM for those who care. ;o

I spent a lot of time here as a silly teenager and it was great. I often think about my behaviour though and think of just how much of a stupid prat I was. Despite that, without this place I would not be where I am today. I still enjoy tweaking things endlessly, drawing and sometimes, I am still a stupid prat. This place had a huge influence on who/where I am today. There was much respect to all of you


In my time jumping back around on modding forums over the past couple years, I've reflected several times on these exact thoughts about myself. It's shocking reading some of the stuff I've written, which I would immediately rewrite if I could.

On another note, have y'all see Zola's Halo documentary? If you haven't check it out here.

It would be really fantastic to see something like this happen for Halo modding. Is anyone interested in pursuing a project like this? I guess it would include submitted interviews and footage. I have contacts for a lot of people still, and I'm sure we could get a lot of interview footage. We could discuss the history, how we fell into modding, Halo 1 and Halo 2 (maybe even later games), and the impact modding has had on out thoughts and our present lives.

Of course, we would leave out the bullshit, and only highlight the positive things. We all were part of an unbelievable community, and a documentary like this seems necessary for such a fascinating community Halomods created.

Doorm4n, I passed that idea on to Hizlo, CLuis, Llama Juice, and a few others. I'll also let GTJuggler know next time I see him on Xbox Live as well. I'd be interested in seeing a video like that for sure.

That's great, man! Thanks for being so interested in this idea. I feel a documentary would be one of the best ways to archive the glory and beauty that was once Halomods and Halo modding. Btw, add me on XBL nintendo. My gamertag is DoorM4n. Also, I didn't realize GTJuggler still had Xbox Live. What is his gamertag? If I remember correctly, it is some sort of variation of GTJuggler. He was one of my main influences in modding.

Just sent a Friend Request, my tag is Agnt 007, had the name since pre-halo 2 on Xbox Live. And yeah, his tag is just GTJuggler, it's still on his website www.halogt.com . I'll be on MCC a lot, especially once all the bugs get sorted out. I try to party up with Llama Juice but when we search in parties we never find games.

Hey DoorM4n, it's been a long time bro... hope all is well with you. I think it would be great if we could gather everyone up. This was a great community back then and I loved being apart of it. So yea lets do it.

Hizlo, really glad to hear from you man. I'm doing great, and I hope you're doing well, too. I'm pumped to see you're interested in getting this ball moving. With your involvement, I know this thing will be done right.

I'm up to lend my part of the Halo modding story to whoever would want to get this ball rolling. I'd very much like to see something like that get done.

The Halo community has treated us well over the years, why not give back.

Like so many of you, I found Halomods way back in the day, it was shortly after the release of Halo2.
I was instantly sucked in, by the idea of recreating Halo the way i wanted.
I modded my Xbox, downloaded a couple mods and was hooked.
My first created mods were simple cheat mods, I would super jump, spin 360's and pull the trigger, getting crazy sniper kills with the SMG lol. This was fun for a day or two, but soon i was editing every tag and just seeing how things worked.

One of the first mod i ever shared was Headlong Rooftops, Playing snipers up there, was so much fun, soon i was shooting airlifts from the plasma pistol to make in game custom lifts to different rooftops. Playing above Headlong, Coagulation, Burial Mounds, or below Lockout had become the norm. I would check Halomods daily to see what people were working on, and the tutorial page was invaluable. The people here were all so creative and amazing, but i never really felt like part of this community till Remnants site came out, By then i was actually making and releasing fun and beautiful mods, I spent so much time modding, my wife and kids became jealous of it.

This became my art, I would share some mod i made, or some tag edit i figured out and see it played or used on XBC or Xlink Kai and would be filled with pride.

My name is Shawn Becker, former known here as Venom73 i am 42 years old, and im proud to have been, part of this community.

I admire so many people here, and had so many good times, thanks for everything.


my most notable mod: Probably, The Ruins

Oh gosh, those were some times. It's okay, we who worked with you knew you really did intend the best for the site. I shared many of your ideas as well. Many of them just weren't practical when considering how set in their ways the community was, and how difficult it would be to build a new community without a strong flow of content. It just didn't work out.

On a lighter note: it's good to see you, Sourcey. Hope things are good!


Hi Shout,

Late reply. I really did want the site to not die, but I tried to make it happen without fully understanding the community. Anyhow, things are good! Working in IT now. I've also gotten really interested in psychology stuff lately.

I have a hard time remembering everything that happened. I could go into the archive, but part of me doesn't really want to see my old posts. Something about halovicis does come to mind, a logo design... :) What are you up to nowadays?

It's pretty weird to read that detox got arrested for hacking the government and microsoft. Five years in prison when you're so young is a big deal. I doubt they made any money with the information they stole, it seems like a harsh punishment. They should've just banned him from their networks :P

Good god, Source, talk about a late reply *cough* two years ago *cough*. IT sounds like it would suit yo; very glad things are going strong. :D I've actually gotten out of psychology stuff lately – peoples minds are rabbit holes that go absurdly deep; it's hard to keep up. :P I do animation design and editing at a company called LoyalKaspar in NYC (www.loyalkaspar.com). They're a network branding agency. Check out my work sometime at my portfolio website: www.mylesbryan.com

I think we can both agree – despite how aggressive his punishment (probably unnecessarily aggressive all things considered), he definitely will learn his lesson (I should hope). v v
