I want to add some new maps I downloaded but I dont no where to look...also I downloaded 3 different trainers for Halo 2...None of them work...they show up in my trainers menu but when I turn stuff on nothing happens...can anyone tell me how I can access all halo 2 files...such as maps...textures...player files...all of that stuff...thanks alot for any help.!   :)

The cache thing only works for Halo 1. There is no point at looking at maps and such because you can't mod levels unless Halo 2 is saved to your Xbox HDD. Now as for modding profiles that can be done. Look it E:/UDATA/4d530064 now I would suggest copying that entire folder to your PC HDD if you want to edit. As for trainers, you can't use them if you have played Xbox Live before, there is a topic in here that tells you were the folder is(I think on your E) to delete in order to be able to use Trainers for Halo 2 and any other Xbox Live game. All your maps textures and files and such are going to be on your D:/ when you put the game in as runawaywarthog said.
