Our guy on the inside, Sean "Scoops" Cooper, is back with another tale from the Halo engineering trenches and some interesting bug work regarding a pesky medical scanner:.
These marines are located at the start of the mission, near the collection of green crates. The Medical Scanner the marine is holding is present in different animation sequences used in Halo 3. This bug is a symptom of the actual cause. But first a history lesson. He has also worked on the Halo games since Halo 3. See Exhibit A below. I believe at the time he was claiming this was a bug they fixed in ODST. I took a mental note and carried on with what I was doing. A few days later he corrected himself: But how did the designers ever attempt to use it in their vignettes if that was the case?
See Exhibit B below. After pulling up this information in the scenario, I started inspecting the various properties for the medic. See Exhibit C below. Nothing else in the properties stood out as a possible lead to this mysterious medical scanner. So I pulled up the Marine character and looked at said set of properties.
See Exhibit C again. Everything there checked out. With my head wrapped around the data and the code, I set forth to debug the code in action. I found where it tries to create the activity objects and slapped down a breakpoint.
Thankfully, the particular vignette is right at the beginning of the level, and in this case wound up being the first thing to hit the conditions of the breakpoint. Here, I started inspecting the game state and the asset data that was loaded.
Another pass at the code and it became clear as to why.Was The MCC Update A Success Or Failure?
Another asset in level would need to have strong reference would for it to be included into the map file. The desire for this kind of asset resolution is understandable.
There are a couple of ways to solve for this, but I want to do some more investigation first. You also need the CPU resources to process everything. The games are very complex ecosystems. We're excited to get the November update into your hands and hope you'll keep your feedback coming and let us know how the Match Composer and other new additions are working out. As always, you can leave feedback, suggestions, and issue information right here in the MCC forum on Halo Waypoint.
Work on MCC continues and the the team plans to keep attacking issues and has more goodness in store like the long-awaited Custom Game Browser. We don't anticipate that big feature coming until next year, but keep an eye out for a more modest update to MCC later in December.
Thank you to everyone who continues to play MCC and share feedback!
Mcc matchmaking update
Your support and passion fuels the team - please keep it coming! Welcome back to another Halo: The Master Chief Collection development update, packed with details on everything the team is working on this month. Read on for the full details! Welcome new and returning Spartans to the updated and enhanced Halo: Please also keep Europe in mind. I can't find anything in H2C Hardcore and I spent hours trying to find a game. My ping to us east is exactly and I really hope that once everything is fixed that i'll be able to match americans in all playlists.
I'm concerned all an open cap will do is destroy any hope we had for local games at all as AU players will be snapped up into US hosted games.
Also wouldn't it mean US players getting put on foreign host as well? I had an idea - what if there was a 'regional playlist' with a mix of game modes, with the 35 sec subms expansion enabled, and all the regional players could play in there, but still play the 'normal' playlists or with their overseas friends with the more aggressive expansion enabled.
Halo: Master Chief Collection Shows Off New Matchmaking Feature
Cut them some slack. They've put over playlists in the game. There's one playlist for each player online during peak hours. The services team isn't necessarily involved with playlists, which means they're more likely to forget what a specifically named playlist is on the fly.
There are different people doing different things, and engineers aren't always going to get those specific details right when answering questions on demand. Tried BTB for a while, all to no avail. Why are they so stubborn? Just allow us to go on any server; all it does is provide those who are closer to the datacenters an easier time.
I don't care if I'm laggy. It won't hamper their experience, I just want to play Halo. You know, the game I've been playing for the past 3 years? I think is just scared that people will drop the game thinking it's still buggy because of all the Australian players, it's kind of a lose-lose situation unfortunately. I knew hyping this update would be a mistake. That's why I didn't expect much coming into it. AngryXenomorph , hipcrime , havoc00 and 1 other person like this.

Can't wait to play this! Electroacoustic , Aug 27, After 10 years they finally fixed it. Now 4 people can return back, bringing the total of 6 players worldwide. TrooltheTrollLegend , Aug 27, Totally going to check out the enhancements. TheVert , Aug 27, I haven't played 2 in forever but I'd still wreck everyone here.
AssassinAltair , Aug 27, Have they added a custom game server browser? I played Halo PC religiously for like 10 months because of that feature and honestly it was the only time I actually had fun with this series.
