I don't mean like custom CTF, I mean like adding stockpile and headhunter from Reach. What would I need to do? I assume that I need the H2 editor, but is there anything else that would be useful? I'm a noob at this if you couldn't tell.

Rip apart the game and start from scratch probably lol

Or make scripts, fix scripts, fix and adjust stuff, then in order to play that it'd probably have to be a "slot" map (custom main menu, CO-OP menu)

CTF ,Headhunter..etc are GameEngine types which are in built in halo 2 itself
H2 Editor has nothing to do for custom gametypes ,though u can still get many fun custom games from scripts
Like check Aerial Dev's Jenga map
It uses scripts entirely and is quite fun

I dont think we still need to use the Slot map system because most of the checks have been disabled in xlive(i may be wrong for the current release build, but the next build that will arrive shouldnt rely on Slot maps for loading any custom content)

Oh cool deal, even though I'm in Dev preview I still have no idea what's going on really. Lmao
