Alright, what'll you need to do (first of all) is make a mini-mod so you don't have to edit the WWII mod directly. However, that's a completely different tutorial that I'm not going to get into in this post. Also, of course, you'll need to extract the RFA with a program, say, winRFA (which comes with the Battlefield MDT). For the purpose of this tutorial, I'll refer to files in the RFA in relation to the \objects\ folder. However, replacing the BAR with the flamethrower... the main thing you'll need to edit is objects\Items\USMarineKit\Assault\Objects.con. I'll copy/paste what you'll need to change. (The [color=Red]red, bolded[color=Black] text shows what was changed from its original setting.)[/color][/color] I'll leave it up to you to figure out why you changed what you changed, et cetera. However, if you are completely stumped, just telll me so I can reply with the answers. :deal: (Actually, I was in the process of explaining why below the text, but I accidentally did the Mozilla mouse gesture for "back" and lost what I wrote, and I don't feel like retyping all of it right now. :uhm:) [color=Green]BONUS![color=Black] [/color][color=Black]I decided I'll just attach the fixed .con (in .txt form--just rename the .txt to .con) file with some commenting because I felt like it. :p Enjoy.[/color][/color] ObjectTemplate.create Kit UsMarine_AssaultWW2 ObjectTemplate.Type Assault ObjectTemplate.healthBarIcon "menu/hud/guage03empty.tga" ObjectTemplate.healthBarFullIcon "menu/hud/guage03fullorange.tga" ObjectTemplate.addWeaponIcon "Weapon/Icon_alliesKnife.tga" ObjectTemplate.addWeaponIcon "Weapon/Icon_colt.tga" ObjectTemplate.addWeaponIcon [color=Red]"Weapon/Icon_Flamethrower.dds"[/color] ObjectTemplate.addWeaponIcon "Weapon/Icon_grenadeallies.tga" ObjectTemplate.addWeaponIcon "Weapon/Binoculars.dds" ObjectTemplate.setKitIcon 58 [color=Red]"Weapon/Icon_Flamethrower.dds"[/color] ObjectTemplate.setKitName 58 [color=Red]"FLAMETHROWER-GRENADES"[/color] ObjectTemplate.setKitActiveName 58 "RESPAWN_ACTIVE_ASSAULT" ObjectTemplate.geometry Kit_Allies_Assault ObjectTemplate.HasCollisionPhysics 1 ObjectTemplate.networkableInfo WW2KitInfo ObjectTemplate.addTemplate UsMarine_Backpack ObjectTemplate.addTemplate AlliedKnife ObjectTemplate.addTemplate Colt ObjectTemplate.addTemplate [color=Red]M2-2Flamethrower[/color] ObjectTemplate.addTemplate GrenadeAllies ObjectTemplate.addTemplate Binoculars ObjectTemplate.aitemplate Assault ObjectTemplate.create Kit UsMarine_AssaultWW2_Alt ObjectTemplate.Type Assault ObjectTemplate.healthBarIcon "menu/hud/guage03empty.tga" ObjectTemplate.healthBarFullIcon "menu/hud/guage03fullorange.tga" ObjectTemplate.addWeaponIcon "Weapon/Icon_alliesKnife.tga" ObjectTemplate.addWeaponIcon "Weapon/Icon_colt.tga" ObjectTemplate.addWeaponIcon "Weapon/icon_m1_garand.tga" ObjectTemplate.addWeaponIcon "Weapon/Icon_grenadeallies.tga" ObjectTemplate.addWeaponIcon "Weapon/Binoculars.dds" ObjectTemplate.setKitIcon 71 "Weapon/Icon_m1_garand.dds" ObjectTemplate.setKitName 71 "RESPAWN_ASSAULT_US_ALT" ObjectTemplate.setKitActiveName 71 "RESPAWN_ACTIVE_ASSAULT" ObjectTemplate.geometry Kit_Allies_Engineer ObjectTemplate.HasCollisionPhysics 1 ObjectTemplate.networkableInfo WW2KitInfo ObjectTemplate.addTemplate UsMarine_Backpack ObjectTemplate.addTemplate AlliedKnife ObjectTemplate.addTemplate Colt ObjectTemplate.addTemplate M1Garand ObjectTemplate.addTemplate GrenadeAllies2 ObjectTemplate.addTemplate Binoculars ObjectTemplate.aitemplate Assault
