How to Configure Halo CE to start in developer mode (- devmode)

The default configuration for Halo CE does not allow you access the developer mode (-devmode) commands. However it is simple to create a startup icon to start in devmode.

NOTE: When in devmode you cannot access the internet lobby or start an internet game.

  • First right click on the Halo Custom Edition Icon on your desktop then select "copy".
  • Right click on an empty space on your desktop and click paste to make another copy.
  • Click and highlight the new Icon and press [F2] and rename it to "Halo CE Devmode" or something similar.
  • Right click on the new Icon on your desktop and select properties (see image).
  • In the target field of the properties dialog box you will find the following:

    "C:\Program Files\Microsoft Games\Halo Custom Edition\haloce.exe"

    Change this to read:

    "C:\Program Files\Microsoft Games\Halo Custom Edition\haloce.exe" -Screenshot -console -devmode

    Note: include the quotations.(")  
This will enable Screenshots, the game command console and developer mode when you start the game with this Icon.
