You can use the search bar on the side of Halo Maps to look up the campaign maps for Halo Custom Edition. HEK Plus as far as I know only works on Windows 8 and Older, so you may need to run it in a virtual machine. I recommend Windows 7 or XP

There are links to tutorials in the help tab of HEK plus.
