    Phantom MAPPACK v1 and v2
    Assembled by iBotPeaches

    What does v1 and v2 mean?
    I wanted to start with a large mappack supporting 90 maps. This idea failed once I came to the realization that it was near impossible to have 90 mainmenu previews. I could have 90 maps, just not any mainmenu screenshots. I feel that diminishes the look of a mappack, so I decided to split my mappack into 2 version. Each version has 45 maps, and a mainmenu with previews.

    I started this mappack around 3 years ago when the release of Killtrocity 2 was still fresh in the minds of everyone. I wanted to compete, thus I tried to create a mappack by myself. I was a noob and had no clue what I had just started. My DDS previews were aligned wrong, and I had very little knowledge of C# so I stopped, 3 years later I picked up the project to boost Halo 2 modding. Finished finding some mods, made the mainmenu shots and programmed an autopatcher.

    The mappack release was orginally set for November of last year. However, after my first BETA test I quickly released that a few mods had issues of freezing, strange noises and others just wouldn't load. I double checked everything, and fixed what I could and replacing mods for others that didn't work. Then the problem of SLC arose. Long story short, I went from 20ish not working to 5.

    mainmenu.png

    This mainmenu doesn't compare to Killtrocity 2, or come close to the mainmenus that neodos can make. It does boot the maps which is what I want you to remember. I tried to create a successful mainmenu, but all failed and there was much anger involved. So I simply got a fresh mainmenu and skinned just 3 elements of it. I also removed the blue filter to add to the change.

    autopatcher.png

    The autopatcher was a rough project. I tried doing it all from scratch and nothing would work. All I knew was I had to use the serenity calls to take advantage of autopatching. Then I got help from The_Guardians from his Serenity v3.2 autopatcher. This saved me from my pathetic coding structure that didn't even take advantage of reading the serenity patch for the output map. If interested you can view screenshots of my old code, here and here.

    downloads.png

    I have 3 separate hosters in which you can download. There are 13 parts that totals 1.18gb, but has 90 patches, all programs included for building an ISO, and a special optional bink file. All hosters are hosting the same parts, thus meaning you can download any parts from any hoster and then unRAR them all once you get all 13. Rapidshare, Megaupload and Mediafire are your choices for downloads. Below you will find a list if your trying to load into jDownloader, or hyperlinks if you will be manually downloading. I at first wanted to do a torrent, but I could only find 2 dedicated seeders and that would be at 5kbps and that would take forever. I'll put one up later on, once links seem to die.

    Direct Download :)

    You'd need to have modded firmware, then prepare this as a backup.

    xD you don't need a kreon drive to make backups

    Just connect the 360 drive to your computer the way you did when you flashed it, and when it shows up in my computer, run XBC (xbox backup creator), and go to read. It will then rip the game to an ISO

    I have the mappacks burned on ISOs that work on normal xbox(s).

    If they don't require changing, I think they should work on the 360, unless you need to do something extra.

    The xbe might need to be updated, I'll double check the differences between a normal untouched xbe in comparison to a modded one.

    The part 11 file at the mediafire site is corrupt. Just download that file from megaupload, once downloaded just replace the spaces in the file name with underscores.
