Just got this game. Played 1 hour. Looks great with great scenery, etc.

But, I would like to add 10 rounds to the SCAR. Is it at all possible to do this without spending 2 years reprograming the entire game? :confused:

I have moded over 50 games, mostly weapons, but I see there is only one weapon mod available on Crytek's Official Modding Portal | Portal.

Isn't there a simple script file I can open and just change the Mag/clip size and click save and play? Please help if able.

Absolutely.

Basic XML Tweaking - CryWiki

Actually stuff that, ammo is controlled in Game/Scripts/Entities/Actor/Player.lua.

Thanks Mate. I did it and opened it"Editing of XML files Preparation Before you can start editing the .xml files you have to extract them from the respective .pak file. To achieve that open the GameData.pak that is located in the "Game" folder of your Crysis Wars installation and extract the Scripts folder. If you have the latest patch for Crysis Wars installed you also have to extract the Scripts folder from the ZPatch1.pak file and overwrite the extracted folder from GameData.pak. The ZPatch1.pak file is located in the "Game" folder as well.

Before you start tweaking you should also strip down the folder structure so that only the files of the weapons you want to tweak remain. If you want to edit weapon XML files you can delete all folders except for the following one: "Game\Scripts\Entities\Items\XML\...".

Did all that.

After preparing the files you can start editing and tweaking now. A XML file can be edited with every text editor. Still you should think about getting a text editor that displays the text formatted and highlighted correctly. . .downloaded Notepad++).

Opened the files but can change anything or enven type in the file. really sucks.

all I wanted to do was change the number 4 to 5. I have spent 2 hours reading downloading and stuff only to find out I can't even do that in Notepad++.

Unless someone knows how to allow the file to be edited withou reading for 5 hours.

God I miss games like COD series that can be edited simply and quickly. The new verions and codes the use now is really sick.

Wow, all the files are read only. Never seen that in any other game. Mod wiki needs to state this in the setup instructions. Mods and changes can be done but still very difficult and time consuming. Maybe in a few weeks after I get a few Weapon Mod "sets" done I'll post them to save others some time. Great game with geat graphics, but man! Thanks for the input missing.string.
