Halo Custom Edition Article

Halo CE Takes a long time to start
When Halo Custom Edition starts up it performs a checksum calculation on all the maps located in the Halo CE map folder. This checksum calculation is done to 1) determine that a map is not corrupt and 2) to verify that the map in your folder is the same as the map that is running on the server you wish to connect to.

The more custom maps you have in your \map folder the longer it takes for Halo CE to start. To reduce the time it takes to start the program move unused maps to another folder before starting Halo CE.

For a standard installation of Halo CE your map folder is located at C:\Program Files\Microsoft Games\Halo Custom Edition\maps create a sub folder C:\Program Files\Microsoft Games\Halo Custom Edition\maps\hold and move the unused Custom maps to that folder. When you want to play one of the maps in the \hold folder just copy it into the \maps folder and re-start Halo CE.
