Step 1: Injecting Skins

First back up: (Silent Cartografer)
then open b30 with halo map tools or halo hacker tools then find the bitmaps tag click on it then scroll down all the way until u reach: weapons/bitmaps/assault_rifle/assault_rifle then click on it then press Inject Texture find where u downloaded the MA5C assault rifle then find the assault_rifle dds1 texture double click it then it will be injected but we not done save and find the assault rifle number plate thing click it then press Inject Texture then do it again exept look for all the numbers plate and inject them all and save im not sure if u inject the compass thing if u do then inject it then find ui/hud/bitmaps/combined_rectiles then the first one press Inject Texture find the MA5C folder then inject the rectiles and save.

Step 2: Injecting Model

this is an easy step find the [mod2] Model PC tag then find assault_rifle/fp/fp click it then click on the model name something vertices is in it then u should see a model on an assault rifle press import model find the MA5C Folder then find the model and import it then save.

Step 3: Injecting Animations

another easy step this should be somewhere on the top find the [antr] Animation Trigger tag then find the assault rifle tag thing click it then on the top is the meta code stuff click inhect meta find the MA5C Folder then find the meta code thing i think its called fp.meta or its called antr.meta inject it then save.

Step 4: Injecting Sounds

go to the sounds tag this will be hard cuz theres more than 330 tags in this place find assault_rifle/fire then u should see like brown_fire1 brown_fire2 brown_fire3 brown_fire5 press import sound then import all the sounds besides the AR reload and AR ready or whatever then inject those and save then find AR reload inject that sound and save.

Step 5: Mod Some Stuff

now u got a full ma5c assault rifle but it acts like a halo 1 assault rifle find the Weapons tag and then find assault rifle then press the magazine tab and press the "0" button then change the rounds intinel to 240 and change the maximum ammo to 400 and the clip size to 32 and rounds reloaded to 32 then press the trigger tab and press the "0" on it then change the Minimum ROF and Maximum ROF to 7.5 and ur done! please be aware that the skin, the sound and the rectile will be in all maps.

    Hey, this is a great instructable and is very informative. Just one thing is missing... pictures! It really helps a lot when trying to follow directions so you should consider taking some photographs. Once you do that and leave me a message when you have so that we can publish your work. Thanks! Thanks for the cool instructable and we hope to publish this soon!

    Not sure if I'll be much help now, as I made these instructions when I was 11 -.-

    It's been 3 Years since I have ever used HMT.

    MA5B Is the Halo 1 Assault Rifle, which fires faster and has a 60 Round clip. The one in Halo 3 is called the MA5C Which has a 32 Round clip, shoots slower, but has more damage then the MA5B

    When I try to inject the model it injects fine, but when I test it in game the model isn't any different from the halo 1 assault rifle. P.S. everything else works fine in this tutorial

    i go to the antr tab, click the assault rifle/fp and click inject meta, i inject fp.antr.meta and when i start the game MC still wields the assault rifle as normal, help? do i need to patch the game or something? what am i missing? the textures are working perfectly and even though there's no big difference in the model, it seems to be working as well, as do the sounds. and i can't save the weapon stats, when i press save they get erased...and when i type them in the tag i get "error when trying to update blah blah blah"


    Mine isn't working. The message it gives me is: "There are no controls to display, because a supported tag has not been selected." Any advice?
