Hey guys, I thought I'd type a little bit about mods and halo reach today, The whole modding situation has been a great one, when it started it looked like the xbox 360 was un-hackable or going to be a pain in the ass to mod, but a few years later and it looks like the modding community took huge steps...nay, leaps forward.
The jtags are one of the reasons for such a leap forward, they use an exploit in the old dashboard kernel (was pre- NXE or what ever they're calling the new dash) and some wiring internally to an port called LTP parallel.
there's a lot of great stuff going on now, new stuff being discovered, new opportunities to create mods on the three sixty that were thought to be crazy.
I'm sickened by some of the actions of some people (using jtags in matchmaking to cheat) also by people talking trash about the modding community, saying we're all trash and cheaters, when a lot of us don't even do anything but mod in custom game lobbies and shit just to have fun.
I'm really excited about the future of modding, I'm excited to see what will happen with project natal (I refuse to call it kinect) in the modding community, I'm sure some people have some ideas of what they'd love to see done.
Halo reach hits in 14 days(and some hours) which makes me really excited, really impatient and happy, halo reach will be one of the best halos out there to date, I'm a huge halo fan (I play other games, they've never been a huge part of my gaming like halo) and that game has touched a lot of peoples lives, made a lot of people happy and angry.
I've met some really cool people on halo, a tight knit group of friends, but I guess this wraps up the blog, keep looking here/stay tuned for Halo reach mods, also check out my youtube channel ( youtube.com/citadelmontages ) for halo 2 mods and some halo 3 videos, some cod videos, some NHL 10 videos and some reach videos (coming soon) plus much, much more.
