    This is one of those things that has been done for a bit, but I guess I never released.. you guys can have it..

    ===========================
    HALO 3 BETA UNLOCKER
    ===========================
    By Xenon.7(DeToX)

    H3B Unlocker, an internal version of the Halo 3 Beta Map Loader by Xenon.7 and Anthony, for non-dev use.

    This tool takes a clean, retail "default.xex" from Halo 3 Beta and will output 3 modified XEXs.
    -h3b-highground.xex
    -h3b-snowbound.xex
    -h3b-valhalla.xex

    Launching one of these XEX's will force a map to load when you go to the main menu and click "Quit to Dashboard", allowing you to improperly play the beta again. Note, since it forces a map to load, you are playing local, on a temporary profile, on the gametype Assault, until the timer runs out, then you can restart the XEX.. This patch is mainly for testing purposes and some modification testing.



    Features
    --------
    -Load a map when clicking "Quit to Dashboard" in the mainmenu.
    -Removed intro videos for faster loading.
    -Removed .map file checks to make modding of content possible.
    -Tool will auto detect if the XEX you opened is not a clean
    one, and will not proceed if it isn't, unless specified.

    To Do

    -----
    -Proper unlock eventually that makes the beta think it did not
    expire and unlocked custom games menu to select any map,
    gametype, etc.



    ========================================
    HOW TO APPLY PATCHES TO THE EXECUTABLE
    ========================================
    -Open "H3B Unlock.exe", open up a clean XEX from Halo 3 Beta, and specify which folder to output the modded executables to.
    -Click apply patches.

    IMPORTANT: It's also been reported you should use xextool for all 4 .dll files in the game. Otherwise the game MAY freeze on launch or give an error message upon launching.


    ========================================

    Note: Little to no testing with the tool to apply the patches, but the patches themselves work. Enjoy.
