Good Morning Friends,

Late last month in the MCC Development Update for June, we touched on the legacy maps and game type file share migration we have planned. This process will kick off on August 12, and we will be doing a one-time copy of both the game types and maps that you have uploaded to your file share so that we can begin preparing them for access in MCC later. This copy will occur for every Xbox Live account with game types and maps on its file share – content saved locally will NOT be transferred.

Below is the full blurb from the Dev Blog, updated to account for game types being done first before maps, as well as with dates!

What is Happening?
This is a ONE-TIME service for bringing game types and maps from your profile’s original Halo 3, Halo: Reach, and Halo 4 Xbox 360 file share to the MCC file share on Xbox One and PC. If you have maps and game type files not on your profile’s file share, they will not be migrated. Only content on your file shares in the original releases for Halo 3, Halo 4, and Halo: Reach from the Xbox 360, will be brought to MCC. These game types and maps will work on both the Xbox One and PC versions of MCC.

When is this happening?
Due to technical limitations, we will only be able to do a single pull for each file type, so we’ve separated this into two separate days – one day for game types and one day for maps. By allowing players to fill up their file share with game types during the first pull and again with maps on the second pull, players can maximize their slots and bring over as many of each file type as they can fit in their file share. The two weeks below are when we will copy the files, so be sure to have your file shares loaded on each game (Halo 3, Halo: Reach, and Halo 4) well beforehand to ensure they get copied over:
  • Game Types – 10 AM PT on 8/12
  • Maps – 10 AM PT on 8/26
What do I have to do?
Load up Halo 3, Halo: Reach, and Halo 4 on your Xbox 360 (or on your Xbox One via back-compat) and ensure the local files you want to copy over to MCC are uploaded to your file share before each pull. Ensure your game types are uploaded up before August 12. On the 12, please leave them there for at least 24 hours without altering so we can properly perform the copy. Then on August 13, please take some time to place your maps on your file shares before August 26.

If you can’t get to your Xbox 360 or update your file share, don’t worry as the game types and maps already uploaded will still make their way to MCC.

When will I have access to my maps and game types in MCC?
Since transferring game types and maps to Xbox One and PC requires work to the current version of MCC, our intention is that they will become available when Halo: Reach releases on both platforms (with Halo 3 and Halo 4 content on PC becoming available once those titles are released). As we get closer and have a better idea of when it should land, we will share an exact date.

How will I get the maps?
There is no work required beyond uploading your files to your file share on all three games. After that, we will make sure they get to the same gamertag. Simply log into MCC on Xbox when the update drops and the maps and game types will be copied down for you. For PC players who have maps in these legacy titles you will need to load into MCC on Xbox after the update to make these available. All maps and game types that have been copied over will be found in your local files.

What about Screenshots, Films, and Film Clips?
After extensively exploring copying screenshots and videos, we were unable to find a workable solution to copy and migrate them to the new system – so unfortunately Screenshots, Film Clips, and Films will not be transferred to MCC during this process. On the plus side, we are still investigating a way bring screenshots to Halo Waypoint and make them viewable and downloadable.

We are excited for this migration to happen and we look forward to bringing all the content you have created over the years into MCC. One additional piece people will be excited to learn, that with this change, we are also increasing your file share size to help you share even more content with your friends online!

We will continue to talk about this more as we get closer to the deadline so that you’re up to date with the latest before we finish the process with a game update. Until then, polish up those maps and get ready!

Cheers,
Postums
When is the fileshare increase happening and by how many spaces will it be updated so I know how many accounts to upload to?

I don't understand what your question is about "how many accounts to upload to?"

I believe he is asking how many File Share slots we're allowed so that he can prepare. In the event the permitted slots are not sufficient, he would like to use additional profiles.
You are allowed the maximum number of file share slots in the legacy titles for that profile. Meaning if you fill the file shares to capacity on each of the legacy titles for a XBL profile, then after the migration log in with that same profile, all will be available to you on that same profile.

There's no increase happening for the legacy titles.

Is there an increase happening for the local file limit on MCC? 50 is a pretty low limit, and many of us are concerned that there will not be any room for the soon-to-be-migrated files.
What about "modded" gametypes like Reach's SvE Mythic Slayer? As tempted as I am to transfer something like that to MCC, I don't necessarily want to get banned because of sheer naivety.

I think you should be fine, though I am not entirely sure.

Modded game types are allowed, same with maps, Tyler was looking for some to test out and I am assuming it went well for this post to come live to us.

I should restate it, is there a legacy fileshare limit increase so we don’t have to buy Xbox live for like 13 accounts to get all of our maps, or can you turn off the Xbox live requirement for the fileshare system on legacy games so we can save some money? I have 90 maps on H4 and 80 on Halo Reach. Reach only allows 6 files, I’d have to make 14 accounts and give all 14 Xbox live to transfer the maps. So is there some type of thing happening to help for that kind of thing?
So does this mean that halo reach on PC definitely wont be out until at least after August 28th? Or is it possible for the game to come before all the transferring is done? I understand you guys are working super hard to get everything right and make the experience on PC as good as possible I just really am trying to figure out some kind of timeframe I can expect the game to come out in

Right now Reach has only had one small flight on PC and none on Xbox so I doubt that it'll be out in August regardless of file transferring.

We will not be increasing the file share sizes. If you have more maps than file share size, you will need to upload them to multiple file shares in order to have them transfer over.

When it's ready.
Thanks for the info, now all I have to do is turn on the good old 360 and hope for the best!

This is actually a pretty good suggestion/solution. You can ask friends that don't have a full file share to upload what you have in excess and then recover the files from them.

What if all your friends back then were online people that have been offline for 5 years and you have 100 maps and 80 gametypes to upload? The max 25 limit for Reach which is probably the same for the other ones sucks, i hope that some modders create a tool so we can transfer however many maps

It doesn't work like that at all.....
If I had Bungie Pro which grants me extra space to store things in my file share, and they're still there in halo 3 (and I'm obviously no longer paying for that) will all those files transfer over? or will only a select few transfer per the size of a normal file share. I hope that makes sense. Thanks!
