PostSubject: Changing laser bolt colour   6/29/2012, 8:22 pm

I would like to make a mod where each faction's laser color is the same in every weapon. For example, using the Republic, I would like to change the sniper and shotgun bolts from green to blue. That way, all fire from that faction is blue. Same thing with green for the Alliance.

I understand that I need to change the [Properties] section of each weapon's .odf file. But I would like to know the data that is available in-game. Is there a .tga for each bolt colour? Of course I can't use the normal bolt texture on the shotgun or sniper. What do I need to do then?

Thanks in advance.

Thanks for the link. I guess I have to create new shotgun ODF's, since they all use:

Code:
com_weap_inf_shotgun.odf

Does that mean that by creating new ones, they won't work in multiplayer? And is there any specific method to create them?

Thanks in advance.

It will work in multiplayer if you only do graphic changes i think.
And there's not specific method to create them. Just create a .txt file and after change the .txt to .odf .

Ok, I'm doing this on my new laptop, and every time I'm starting my map, I get a FATAL warning saying: Could not open mission.lvl

I've also noticed that the _LVL PC folder of my mod (in the addon folder) is empty, and there is no _LVL PC folder on my data_ABC folder. Munging worked fine, but strangely very fast when compared to my previous mods (although I did them on another PC).

Does anyone know how to fix this error?

Are you running windows 7 or vista? If so:

Question #7 - I'm using Vista or Windows 7 and Visual Munge is not working properly, it is munging too fast so what's wrong?
Answer - Try THIS workaround to get it working properly.

I've tried that, made a new world and it didn't change anything...

Really? It has worked for dozens of others... Exactly what steps did you go through to try this? Can you give me a step-by-step walk-through of what you did?

Nevermind. The problem is that not only the changes didn't work, but the menus, names, etc are written in code (in-game).

You need the 1.1 patch. You should get the 1.3 as well.

I have v1.1. Isn't 1.3 an unofficial patch? I'm not sure it's necessary in this case.

1.3 is not but you should get it anyway. You say the names are messed up?

Yes, the menu is like:

common.resume
common.restart
common.quit

The name of the classes, weapons, etc is the same way.

Shocked There could be a problem with battlefront, try re-installing.

It has nothing to do with the game, so mod i played had no localization.
And you probably not installed the workaround correctly, it always worked for me.

The workaround worked, otherwise I wouldn't be able to play the world I created.
