    The End of Elaztek Gameservers

    This is a change that actually happened a while back, but apparently everybody just plain forgot to announce it to the public. Better late than never, though, right? So, we don't have any gameservers anymore. Just Cause 2, Ark, Don't Starve Together, CSGO, and Unturned servers are now offline. All their files have been copied over to Chaotic United's dedicated server, so that should we want they can be reintroduced. Michael wrote a "Closing FAQ" a while back, to attach to the official announcement. That FAQ is at the bottom of this announcement in the spoiler. Most of that pertains to Raven Runner, however, so allow me to go into more details on the non-Raven Runer side of things. First of all, if these servers ever come back, you will find them over on Chaotic United. Here at Elaztek, we make games - and the only reason these servers were ever branded as Elaztek is a result of some of our team being unhappy with the direction of Chaotic United at that point in time. People didn't want to be involved in CU anymore, and thus the servers were kept up under the Elaztek name. As time passed, things changed at CU and the feelings of the people here did as well - hence why the files for these servers are back in CU's hands. Any effort that was formerly put into maintaining these servers is now going to be put towards the primary goal of Elaztek Studios: game and software development. If you do wish for these servers to return, you'll have to ask over on Chaotic United. The server IP's have been removed from the services block on forums page, and all the subforums have been archived. On an unrelated note, incase you didn't see the previous announcement addendum, we updated all the banners of our own screenshots - with the exception of a select few. Despite the joking blurb on that announcement, these screenshots are entirely allowed under the Microsoft Game Content Usage Rules. We hope to have more to share soon! @JTKreates has been making some good progress with the Eon Game Engine - it's not quite ready to show off publicly yet, but it's coming along nicely. That's a wrap on today's announcement, keep an eye out for more down the road! Closing FAQ by Michael:

    6/28/2018 Update

    A small update has been applied to the website. + Added banner images to the following site areas: Blogs, Clubs, Leaderboard, Gallery, Downloads, Awards, Calendar, Search * Replaced banner image on Store page with an ingame screenshot * Fixed incorrect theming with IPS internal embeds - Removed Killerteddy
  6. Hey everyone! We've been doing (more) website updates, and we aren't done just yet! Currently, on our own internal team pages, on the Helpcenter, and on the Forums, you'll notice some nifty new additions at the top of the page in the form of new banner images and titles! It's a small addition, but it's one that really helps to liven up the website. We plan to continue extending this change to the rest of the website in the upcoming days. However, as you've noticed, these images aren't exactly original, all of them being taken from various concept art and ingame screenshots of various official Halo titles. We would like to give credit where it's due and make it explicitly clear that we do not claim these as original by any means. We do plan to replace all of these images with our own work - once we have the art talent necessary. A smaller change involves the pagination on the main website theme. Previously, the current page was the same coloring as the others but with a blue glow around it. For those who never paid attention, it looked like this: The new and improved pagination looks like this: As you can see, the background and text color of the active page are changed instead, as opposed to just an ugly glow. The glow effect is still there, but very very subtle - not as in-your-face as before. Along with these polishes, we did manage to squash a few bugs that were lurking away for some time. You can view the full changelog linked below. Now, I know what you're thinking. What is the actual status on the games? What's the status of Project: Infinity, Raven Runner, or Blamite? What the hell is Eon? What is the actual status of the studio and why is there no apparent progress besides scattered website updates and announcements of new projects? These are all excellent questions, and I think transparency is the key here. Project: Infinity and Blamite are both led by myself, Raven Runner is led mainly by Michael (AwakenedRage), and Eon is led by JTKreates. Let's start in order: What is the status of Project: Infinity and Blamite? Project: Infinity is still at baby stages, as is Blamite. Engines take a long time to develop and up until recently I've been stuck in high school. Once I get a job and proper income, my focus will move a lot more towards Elaztek than it has been for a while, and if finances allow, putting money into getting paid people on the team - or if that isn't doable, just spreading the word and getting dedicated Halo fans to participate in the project. In terms of Blamite, a little bit has been going on that I can go ahead and show off real quick - though it isn't a whole lot. The most recent additions include a crash screen and some improvements to the console. The crash screen was implemented shortly after the Halo 2 Alpha leaked to the public and was made playable over system link thanks to modders. Some screenshots of these can be seen in the spoiler below. What is the status of Raven Runner? For those unaware, Raven Runner was on a temporary development hiatus. That hiatus ended a while ago, but a second, much longer hiatus may be about to hit due to some things that Michael is going through (either he or myself will give more details later, if he wishes for the details to be disclosed - no promises). Even so, I must admit that I myself am very distant from most of what happens with Raven Runner, and most of its team operates separately from the core Elaztek team. This is both due to the fact that the Raven Runner team existed many years prior to Elaztek being something that wasn't just an idea floating about in my brain, going back to 2014 and possibly prior with a project called Demoria Online. Additionally, Michael seems to keep a lot of his stuff secret either on purpose or just due to being busy/not thinking to do it. I don't know what his reasoning is, but I do know that Raven Runner is still currently the most developed project we have at the moment. My hope is for that to change soon - not against Raven Runner of course but because we need more stuff to start happening besides a single mobile-focused game in active development. What is the Eon Game Engine? One of the newest members of our team, JTKreates, is a fairly skilled C++ programmer. He went the route of developing a second engine for Elaztek Studios, known as the Eon Game Engine. I created the logo for it and he's been doing all the coding thus far. The difference between Blamite and Eon is their target game type - Blamite is a 3D-focused engine, whereas Eon is a purely 2D game engine, designed for vastly different purposes. As such, it generally makes more sense to keep them just like that - two separate projects. That may change later on down the road, it may not. Time will tell. Chaotic United A while back, I took down the announcement that was made shortly after Elaztek's launch regarding Chaotic United, without giving a whole ton of clarification on the state of the two beyond just "that old statement doesn't apply anymore". I think it's high time I inform you guys of some of the newer developments regarding the relationship between Elaztek and CU. What the folks on CU have seen slowly happening is a slow carrying-over of various ranks, roles, and site features from Elaztek to CU. Additionally, people have critiqued me for some of these changes/additions as well as my general attitude regarding the management of the two, with people saying things like "CU and Elaztek are not the same", or "they are two completely different entities". While, yes, CU and Elaztek are separate groups, their fundamental values and principles are the same. While one is driven by Minecraft servers and the other by game and software development, the interests, ideas, and so on are the same throughout. However, a decision was made internally not too long ago and that decision was to end the synchronization of the staff team between the two. This had nothing to do with any specific incident but rather just the realization that having the same group of people spread across two organizations is inefficient and isn't the best way to run things. The people currently on both and who hold positions on both will retain those positions, but any future applicants who wish to serve on both will need to apply on both. However, despite these changes, the statement still stands. CU and Elaztek will continue to borrow from each other freely as they are both run by the same people for the most part. They will not share a total team, but they will share ideals, values, principles, and just the general way of running things where applicable. They won't be identical, but the "CU isn't Elaztek" argument is simply not valid. It never was, and it never will be. Conclusion This thing has been getting way too long, so let's wrap it up with some recruitment, eh? We are still looking for people to join the Blamite Game Engine and Project: Infinity development teams! We are especially wanting 3D artists and concept artists so we can stop grabbing screenshots off of Google Images for our new website banners! Additionally, we'd love to have some folks skilled in C++ to hop on board and help us build Blamite (experience with Blam is preferred as well, but not required - just be prepared to learn how it works)! You can apply for a position within the Blamite team here, or for a position within the Project: Infinity team here. That's all for now, folks! Make sure to keep an eye on our Discord for all the latest happenings and so on!

    This is a test mod and cannot be used in any game. The file is a screenshot from the ElDewrito Press Kit.
  12. Official Update as of 4/25/2018 at 1:09 AM CDT: The ElDewrito team has made an update on the situation. This is what they had to say: Just as was seemingly the case from the post above, it appears that the full game assets are the real issue here. They have been asked to temporarily stop development for the time being, but it is unclear what the future of ElDewrito truly holds as of yet. In either case, this is confirmation that the game will NOT be getting shut down.

    ElDewrito Faces Legal Action

    So, recently, ElDewrito was given notice from Microsoft, and as of yet there is no official statement from the ElDewrito team regarding the matter. But I suspect that the events that transpired could lead to some potential concern for the future or Project: Infinity and any other fan-made Halo content - made by us or by other teams. Currently, there have been statements made on Halo Waypoint, as well as some words from Frank O'Connor regarding the ordeal, links to which will be posted at the bottom of this topic. From Halo Waypoint Some of this content has been omitted to reduce post length. Please view the full announcement here so that you know all the details. Today we want to let our community know that Microsoft has initiated actions to protect its Halo intellectual property in the wake of the recent “ElDewrito” PC release. Community created content has long been a key pillar in the Halo franchise and something we have continuously sought to support – from the early beginnings of Red vs. Blue to Forge-made maps & modes to the “Halo Custom Edition” to original recent fan creations like “Installation 01.” These projects, and others like them, have one key factor in common – they fit within Microsoft’s established content usage guidelines. ... As this project reverberated across the community, our team took a step back to assess the materials and explore possible avenues, while Microsoft, like any company, has a responsibility to protect its IP, code and trademarks. It’s not optional in other words. ... As Microsoft’s need to protect its IP spun up, we reached out to members of the ElDewrito team to have an open discussion about the project and the admittedly difficult situation we all find ourselves in. The ElDewrito team is understandably upset at this outcome given the time they’ve each invested in this project, but they understand the legal implications and the need to press pause on this work. ... From Frank O'Connor on ResetEra Some of this content has been omitted to reduce post length. Please view the full announcement here so that you know all the details. BTW, we’re not “shutting down the mod” or going after the Eldewrito crew - we’re enacting action to remove the Halo Online code and packages from places it’s being hosted. The distinction may seem like semantics to a lot of folks, and I don’t blame them for assuming that, but to be clear, this is a legally necessary step to protect code, product, IP, trademarks and copyrights, and is not optional. We’re a publicly traded company, and we have a fiduciary and legal responsibility to our shareholders, and further, if we don’t take steps to protect it, then we actually run the legal risk of losing it - and there’s code and content in there that is still very much in use. The general sentiment that can be drawn is that the issue isn't with ElDewrito itself, its servers, or anything of the sort - but rather to the ms23 component used in it - Halo Online. For those unfamiliar with the inner workings of Halo Online, ms23 is the version of the game that the mod runs on. For those also unaware potentially, ElDewrito is, in reality, a mod - a mod for Halo Online. The issue is that on the Reddit page for Halo Online/ElDewrito, full installers - ms23 included - are being distributed. It's entirely possible that the Dewrito team and their ability to continue modding Halo Online will face very minimal pushback from Microsoft - especially as 343 Industries currently has actually liked the work of the ElDewrito team. Granted, none of this is certain. Microsoft may choose to shut down the team's future work and their master server - we will know a lot more when an official statement is made, and we will reply to this post (or, if need be, a separate announcement entirely) when there is one from the Dewrito team. But what does this mean for us? In short, virtually nothing. Fan-projects have continuously been given the green light from 343 and/or ignored entirely. There is no issue with these. They operate on their own engines, use no Microsoft, 343, or Bungie code/assets, and don't charge for access. They all follow the Game Content Usage Rules set by Microsoft. Project: Infinity and even Blamite do not break these rules. Blamite, while it operates similarly to how Halo's engine operates, does not use ANY Microsoft code (with exceptions being DirectX and other such libraries of course). It also isn't inherently a "Halo" game in itself, merely a set of tools used to build them. Project: Infinity, like other fan projects, doesn't use Halo assets and doesn't make profit for Elaztek. It doesn't use any code from the official Halo titles, and follows the Microsoft Game Content Usage Rules. Fear not for the future of us or Project: Infinity, we are safe. For those interested in ElDewrito and it's current situation, you can find all the relevant links below. Keep an eye on them as well as here at Elaztek for any updates on the situation. 343i Announcement: https://www.halowaypoint.com/en-us/news/eldewrito-community-content ElDewrito Subreddit: https://www.reddit.com/r/HaloOnline/ ElDewrito Download Page/Changelog: https://www.reddit.com/r/HaloOnline/wiki/index/download Comments by Frankie: https://www.resetera.com/threads/microsoft-initiaties-action-to-protect-halo-ip-in-the-wake-of-eldewrito-halo-online-mod.38406/page-3#post-7164086 Direct Download for ElDewrito: http://www.mediafire.com/file/rtmgvh67oy4yzgp/ElDewrito_0.6.exe ElDewrito Website: https://eldewrito.com/
