Halo 2.5 Collection - Updated & Remixed
By Kills Alone & the H2MT Crew
Released April 26th, 2013
Links updated March 10th, 2016
This collection contains sixteen updated Halo 2.5 multi-player maps. The maps have updated settings, new weapons (most of which feature custom HUDs), new and experimental vehicles. New scenery and objects such as base shields. We've added some more Reach era weapons into the mix as well.
IMPORTANT - The original H2.5 maps used the MainMenu Mod but this newer version uses the Custom Map Restriction Remover by Kant. As long as you have these DLLs placed in your Halo 2 root directory you can host and download these new H2.5 maps just as you would with a normal custom map. Another user must have the Custom Map Restriction Remover as well or their download will fail at 99%. One other thing, we do not have this working on dedicated servers yet, so to enjoy these maps you must host them yourselves, at least for now.

ABOUT THE H2MT CREW:
We have some members that also work with Halo 2 for the original XBOX and Halo Custom Edition for the PC.
Some of the members act as consultants and error finders while others create new BSPs (terrain or geometry) to battle over.
The team has released a few mods that enhance gameplay rather then taking away from it, mods such as the MainMenu Mod, Blu Trainer vK2 and Ambiguous Alpha & Beta (the first Real-Time H2V Editor).
A few members have created tools that now allow us access to enhanced Real Time Editing capabilities while others have ported maps and content from various Halo games.
We now have a large pool of custom BSPs, weapons, vehicles, HUDs, shaders, bitmaps, new crates, active scenery, skys, scripts and more to choose from.
When a project has reached an acceptable level of completion we choose to share most of our source files as we believe that the community can grow and learn with more ease through proper existing examples.
We are not actively searching for new members at this time, particularly novices, but if you feel you have some skills that could help us expand the Halo Universe please contact us through the H2PC Forums.
