As soon as you log on to your Xbox Live Account with this on, you WILL be banned! ======================================================================================= Q. What does the Yelo15 Trainer do? A. It is a trainer, you can use it for inf. health, ammo, grenades, or any of the skulls you want. Q. What about a screenshot tool? A. It is that too, you can take screenshots with it; pause the game, teleport, and much more! Now to start the tutorial! ======================================================================================= Files you will need: Team Xored ETM-XBTF Launcher v2.2- Mirror 1 Mirror 2 Yelo Trainer v 1.5- Mirror 1 Mirror 2 FlashFXP-Permanent Link Microsoft .NET Framework 2.0 ---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Ok, first thing's first, let's extract all the files into a well organized folder which, for now, will be called "Yelo Trainer" Now we need to FTP to our xbox using FlashFXP and transfer the 'mini' folder to our xbox into the /E/Apps/ Folder. Now we are going to go into our /E/TDATA/4d530064/ Folder and copy the config_v1.5.inc to the xbox: While we're in there, be sure to re-name the $u folder (if you have one), to ANYTHING else! For example, you will see in the picture, that I have named mine -$u-. Now we just need to put the Yelo trainer on the xbox. To do this, we are going to make a folder called "Trainers" in the /E/ Folder. To do this, right click and click 'Make Folder' and name it "Trainers": Now, go into your 'Trainers' folder. Inside, copy the file Yelo15.etm: ======================================================================================= Ok, now go to your xbox, and select 'Launch Menu' and then 'Apps'. Now select 'Xored Trainer Launcher'. Now select Halo 2 (don't worry if there are 2 Halo 2 listings, just select the first one). Now select 'Yelo: Halo 2 (Xbox). Make sure to select the following options and hit 'A' to activate them: Option #1 "Disable Autoupdate" Option #2 "Developers Mode" Now you can select what others you wish to use. After you're done, press 'Start' on the controller. *NOTE* The light around the 'eject' button on your xbox will turn orange/amber. This is normal, it means that the trainer is running. For a list of the camera commands, look in the folder "Yelo Trainer" on your computer. Open the file "Trainer Configuration Layout". This will tell you all of the commands for the camera: ======================================================================================= After you're done with your screenshots, exit Halo2 and go back to your dash on your xbox. Now to take those screenshots off of your xbox and put them on your computer. First, download BatchDeswizzle- Mirror 1 Mirror 2 Now put the Folder BatchDeswizzle on your desktop: DO NOT mess with this folder. Leave it like it is, don't try to copy anything out of it other than the pictures that will later be placed in there. This folder contains hidden programs that are needed to run: Now FTP to your xbox with FlashFXP. Navigate to the folder /E/TDATA/4d530064/$s/ and copy all files from that folder into your 'raw' folder: Now simply double click BatchDeswizzle.exe and wait for it to finish: Now go into your bmp folder and there's your screenshots! But your not done yet! Now you want to either rename or move all the pictures in your bmp folder so it's empty: Now you must erase all the files in the 'raw' folder, or else every time you go to get your screenshots, you'll have your old ones there as well: Now you want to go back to the /E/TDATA/4d530064/$s/ folder on your xbox and delete all the files in there: Now you're all done and are ready to do it all again! ======================================================================================= Now it's time for some more FAQ's: Q. What the heck; when I open the /E/TDATA/4d530064/$s/ in FlashFXP, there's nothing there!!! A. Relax! Just press F5 on your keyboard and watch the files magically appear! == Q. Come on, I don't wanna have to type in /E/TDATA/4d530064/$s/ all the time to get my pictures, isn't there any easier way? A. Yes, after you are in that folder, simply press Ctrl+P. Now every time you FTP to your xbox, you will automatically be viewing that folder! == Q. I thought I had to change some .ini file or something for this thing to work right? A. Originally you did. However, since you downloaded my version; this file has already been changed for you! == Q. My xbox is set up differently than yours and the .ini isn't correct; what do I do? A. You can just PM me with your set-up and I'll make a custom .ini file just for you! == Q. What the heck, this thing won't work at all! I go in the game, and none of the controls work! A. I've had this problem occur but once before. Simply delete and re-copy Halo 2 to your hard drive. == Q. I just re-copied Halo 2 to my hard drive, and it still doesn't work; what now? A. You simply need to disable your autoupdate manually. To do this go into the /E/TDATA/4d530064/ folder and find the folder labeled $u. Rename the $u folder to ANYTHING else. == Q. What the heck, why are my screenshots downloading to my computer so slow? A. It's odd how the technical world works today. It seems that really small files transfer slower. This is normal. == Q. Dang. Hey dude, can you give me a registration code for FlashFXP, my trial version ran out. A. Excuse me, but read the forum rules! This is illegal and I will not help you in any way! == Q. My question is already listed in this thread, but the given advice didn't help; what do I do? A. Well, I prefer you list your question in the thread again. This way, after it is solved, others can refer back to it for help! == Q. I try to run the trainer with the disk and it doesn't work for me; I apply Invincibility and Infinite ammo and stuff but it never works! I don't have Halo 2 on my HD so what do i do? A. You may want to try disabling your automatic update for Halo 2 and unplug any additional controllers if doing a campaign. Also, make sure after selecting your cheats, you press start and nothing else to start the game. == Q. I can't launch the trainer with the game. When I put the disk in, it automatically plays and won't let me start the trainer, what do I do? A. Start your xbox with no game in the CD tray and have the tray inside the xbox. After your xbox boots up and is displaying the dash, insert the game. Now start your trainer. == Q. I have Halo 2 on my HD, but I want to play it from the disk this time so that I can play the un-modded maps but still have the cheats. How do I tell the difference between the two? A. You can FTP to your xbox, and go to the /E/Games/ folder and rename Halo 2 to Halo 2 (with mods). Now on your trainer, you will see listed Halo 2 and Halo 2 (with mods). Also, you will know if it is loading from disk when you see this screen with a disk at the top-right corner. If you don't see a disk, such as the picture below, you are loading the Halo 2 from your HD: ======================================================================== Extras: Tutorial: Softmodding an Xbox + FTP & Files Read my sig for more tutorials! ======================================================================================= Yeah, I could probably think of some more stuff to add, but for now I won't.
