I was very confused as to why DICE put in the M95 instead of keeping the M82, seeing as the M82 is the actual US military large caliber sniper, so I'm trying to mod it back in, but allot of stuff is missing. How do I put in a scoped view, as well as import the sounds of the M95 into the M82?
There is already a mod:
All you have to do is put the folders in the specified places and change the sniper kits weapon.
It doesn't seem to work on v.1.0 is it intended for a patch, or is there some trick other than just plugging it in?

I'm not sure, as I can't download it until Tuesday.
I have patch 1.3, so I'll see if you can run it on 1.3 patch.
Does your game crash when your map load screen gets to around 17%?
yeah it crashes around 14-17% (when it's loading objects). It's probably something from my modding, I'll try checking over my mod. Man as slow as the loading times are on BF2, I'm really glad they added a load status, otherwise it would be a pain in the a** to mod.

That happened to me when I tried to use the original M82 files that were included with the game (I have since replaced the original M82 files with the M82 files from the Modern Warfare mini-mod, but those crash as well).
It's not your modding, as when I used M82 files, it also crashed, but when I gave the US sniper kit an M95, the game ran fine.:confused::Puzzled:
It has something to do with the M82 itself.
It may need patch 1.4, I don't know.
I'll mess around with the M82 on Tuesday.
EDIT: In the mean time, try THIS mod: Battlefield 2 Mod: Download - Dedicated 100 mbit Fast Files Hosting Servers
It says 'M82 update 2.0'. I wonder if the '2.0' part makes it work......
EDIT #2: I just found THIS mod as well: Battlefield 2: Downloads / Details -- Strategy Informer
It contains a new specops.con and sniper.con file. The Spec Ops has a SIMRAD and the Sniper has an M82. The mod description says it will work.
That second one I've tried before, but it's not complete, it just puts the unfinished files in the kit. I'll check out the first one though. Nice to know it's not my modding, that would have been a headache!!!

The 'M82 Update 2.0' works, but it has a few flaws:
1. No gun sound (there is ejecting brass and smoke from the barrel, but there is no sound).
2. You can only fire the gun while prone.
3. The scope view is VERY small.
Other than that, the file works just fine.
Sometime ago I had that working fine. I'll check it out in BF2Editor and see if I can get the scope and sound straightened out. Not guaranteeing it but as for the fire while prone, I snipe in prone position anyway and it's more realistic but if you think it's better off without Fire while in prone, i'll change that.
Yay, that would be awsome. I play on v1.0 though, will it still work if you mod it for a different version? Also don't touch the prone bit, I like it better that way.
