Halo 2 PC Online – Project Cartographer Tutorial (November 2016)


Revisions:
11-23-16 Initial release.


Hey guys,

Recently I got a lot of gamers telling me that in my previous Halo 2 Project Cartographer video that the files linked didn’t work, or maybe they had issues on Windows 10. All of that didn’t make any sense to me at all, so earlier today I reinstalled the game, got the Halo 2 Launcher file from h2v.online, and it got my game online on the first try!

So how does it work? Here is the quick text tutorial:

  1.  Install Halo 2 Vista PC on your computer. It works fine on my Windows 10 64-bit machine.
  2. Get the Halo 2 Launcher from h2v.online/install. Link here.
  3. Put the .exe in the root of your Halo 2 folder.
  4. Run the .exe, make an account, and then sign in and play!

For the visual learners out there, see my video tutorial below.  Enjoy!

How To Connect PS3 Controller to PC Using SCP DS3 Driver (No Motioninjoy!)

Revisions:

5-11-15: Initial release.


On my youtube channel in the past, I had two videos that discussed how to get your Sony DS3 controller to connect to the PC. The first video focused solely on Motioninjoy, which is a program/driver package that installed the proper PS3 drivers so your controller can emulate the xbox 360 game controller on the PC.

Since then, I made a second video tutorial that used a combination of Motioninjoy and Better DS3 Tool. The idea behind that video is we use the drivers from Motioninjoy, but then we use the offline Better DS3 Tool so we can use our controller without having to be connected to the Internet.

For whatever reason, I still have viewers telling me they can’t get their DS3 controller to work properly on the PC.

Henceforth, I created what should now be the final PS3 controller tutorial using the SCP DS3 Drivers. The reason this method is awesome is because once all is said and done, the SCP Server runs as a service in Windows, which means that once you turn on your computer, this is always running in the background. No need to have a program running in the background. Just plug in your DS3 to the PC, or enable bluetooth on your controller, and you are ready to have a lot of good times.

How To Determine the Lowest Compatible PS3 Firmware for Downgrading

PS3 Console

Revisions:

In my latest PS3 video, I will show you how to determine what is the lowest firmware that your PS3 can accept. Why is this important?

If you want to do CFW (custom firmware) and you upgraded your PS3 to the latest official firmware (i.e. 4.66) you may or may not be able to downgrade it if the original firmware loaded on the system is 3.56 or higher.

If it turns out that your PS3 model was originally with built firmware 3.55 or lower, then that means your PS3 can be downgraded through the use of a hardware flasher of some sort.

How To Play the Walking Dead PC with PC or PS2 USB Controller

So a gamer on my youtube channel told me that this game could not work with his non-xbox 360 game controller. I got the game, tested it with my PS2 controller with twin usb joystick adapter, and I too could not get it figured out.

In addition, many youtube videos show you about this dinput8.dll file, where you copy it into the root folder, and your xbox 360 game controller work. If you use the same file with your PC controller coupled with x360ce, well, it doesn’t work at all.

After some research, I figured it out. What you need is a “spoof” dinput8.dll and when coupled with x360ce, your game controller will now work with the game. The procedure is simple, but best exemplified with a video tutorial as shown below. Enjoy!

[How To] Play Soldier of Fortune on Windows 7 64-bit Tutorial


Revisions:
11-17-12: Initial release.


When I was growing up as a kid, one of the games I used to play all the time was Soldier of Fortune. At the time, the game was awesome because it was the first game of its kind to allow the user to shoot off limbs and body parts right off the body.

Want to blow off the arm? Go ahead. Maybe just a leg instead? Sure, go for it!

But now with modern machines, you may try to run the game, and it doesn’t work? It crashes? Well, I found a simple way to make the game work.

The steps are below:

1) Install game.

2) Install latest patch. Go to filefront.com to find latest files.

3) Now go into your Soldier of Fortune game folder. Make a copy of the SoF.exe and repaste it to make another copy. Rename the new file as mohaa.exe.

4) Now run the SoF.exe and play the game! Apparently, having the mohaa.exe for whatever reason allows the game to work. See screenshot below:

Hope that helps, enjoy!
