    DotHalo is a Halo 1 and Halo 2 map modding program. This program requires .NET Framework. If the program does not load, go to Microsoft and get .NET Framework.

    Ok well here is DotHalo (aka H2Edit). There are bugs and incomplete items in the program but for the most part everything works. Over the last week I have been deciding how to move forward with this project and I finally came up with a solution. I will continue work on DotHalo but I will be starting from scratch. Part of the reason is that it will give me a chance to clean up the code and make it run faster. Since I have only been programming for 3 months, I had alot of things to learn and this program wasn't made as professionally as I would have liked it to be. So I am going to re-make it and make it much better. I am looking for help on this new project so if you are interested, please contact me.
