Sessions & Events are also announced on Xfire with your local time:


By the way, since there's so much snow now we recommend to change the chat ingame chat color while playing on Xmasworld. Colors can be found here: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Web_colors

And the instructions:
Want to change your halo font color? Then read this tutorial.

Go into your halo folder (C:\Program Files\Microsoft Games\Halo Custom Edition) and look for the folder called content, open it up and you should see lost of un-recognised files called 576editbox,480log... etc.

These are the resolution sizes that your ingame text is stored on so if you want to change the text of 800x600 resolution, you would need to go to 600log and if you want to change the resolution of 1024x768, you would need to go to 768log and so on. Double click on the file and it will say it doesn't know the file extension, just choose open with selected program and choose notepad. Open it and it should bring up a box something like this...

Now you can start doing some tweaking to the text. Lets start with the color, at the moment it's set at ffffffff which is white. You have to use HTML (hex code) code to change the color but heres a link to a color code:

e.g. replace ffffffff (white) to ffff0000 to make your text full red. (Format: iiRRGGBB, ii= intensity)

To change to text size just change the values, and to change the font, do the same thing. Only certain fonts work but i use 'comic sans ms' and that font is cool and seems to look good at 1024x768 res.


If you wanted to you can move the text around the screen to where you want it and how many lines you want the text to be. The default is 8 lines and you can't make it any longer but you can make it shorter. I would just experiment with things, that's what i did to find things out and what each item does.

You can change the edit box (the thing where you type your message when you push 'T' to talk to other players) but i wouldn't bother.
