catscratcher a little bit of info first i just signed up with this forum so i am new here. but i would like to offer a correction if i may so that you know flash radius is refering to the actual flash the weapon gives off the other thing is radius = 100 in the explosion end of a missle set it to a 100 and you will hit things that are not ment to be hit .. example as follows

nickname = missile03_mark02_explosion
effect = missile03_mark02_explosion (wanna spice this up too change it to any other existing effect like br_empmissile_impact)
lifetime = 0.000000, 0.000000
process = disappear <---- (remove this and the missle wont go away till it hits something)
strength = 100
radius = 16 <-- (but if you change this to ooh say 2000 then it would make a big dent)
hull_damage = 31.600000 <-- obvious
energy_damage = 1264 <-- obvious
impulse = 0

if you found this helpful then kewl if not sorry ...
i tinkered with the settings till i got them to do something better then they did
thats the way we learn eh ? (keep it real keep it klean) <its spelled wrong i know>

old. i know. but its always good to bring out the old threads

"This tutorial will cover almost anything about weapons"

it would be useful to include a complete list of nicknames for the weapons, and their "real" names...

jst a thought.

~x marks the spot. step and burn!

I apologize for dragging out an old post, but do I need to use a specific program do decompress the zip the DLL is in? The standard windows "extract all" says it's corrupt, or that there are no files to extract.

First of all, what zip file? None of the dll's are in zip files. As to using the windows zip thing, its utter rubbish. Get a copy of winzip or winrar, real programs for real people.

The blanck dll new_res2 in the first post. The normal windows thing isn't the only one saying it's corrupt. My mac's stuffitexpander (newest ver.) also says it's corrupt

I couldn't even dl it, said i had to be a member of the site which is odd, but bear in mind this was originally posted back in 2003 so don't be surprised

If you are using FL Explorer or if you have it, it has a blank dll file called empty_resources.dll in its install folder - you can use a copy of that.
