1. I tried to make a Jackal carry a beam rifle to make it a Sniper Jackal, I made an entire new Jackal major biped and actor_variant and made the accuracy near perfect so that it is a sniper but it refused to hold the beam rifle. I removed the plasma pistol from the weapons list in the biped tag but it didnt have the beam rifle. So I put the plasma pistol in the list but it just used the plasma pistol(for sniping. XD) and didnt even drop the beam rifle. So how do I make it carry the Beam Rifle? Im a beginner modder in CE, so please help. 2.I tried to put in new vehicles like Spectres, wasps etc into Bloodgulch but those vehicles didnt appear in-game. It never worked on any multiplayer maps but it was ok in single player maps. Its like:- I put vehicles in the map in Sapien, they appear ok, then they dont appear in-game. I saw a tut that said that, to make them appear, I have to enable some options "slayer default, ctf default, oddball default and king default" but it still didnt appear. Please help. 3.Yes, Im beginning modding and I want to put in a script made by Kenney001: Dual Wielding Script. I have been working on my map for hours and I cant seem to figure out something:
kenney001 Then you open your scenario in sapien, and add the trigger volumes with these names, over their according weapons SMG SMG2 Magnum Magnum2 Plasma_rifle Plasma_rifle2
Over their according weapons? WTF does he mean? How r we supposed to know which trigger volume goes with which weapon? I mean, we have SMG, Dual SMG, Plasma Rifle+SMG, Magnum+SMG and so on. So how would we know which one goes for SMG2, Magnum2, or Plasma Rifle2? Please help. Its all sooo confusing. No offense to the maker, but hes made the readme a bit confusing. I really appreciate the dual wield feature but hes made instructions only he can understand. P.S.- Do I need the Halo 2 HUD? I got an error too. The link to the last question is:- http://forums.filefront.com/halo-modding-editing/326771-how-do-i-use-kenney001s-dual-wield-script.html They're all from other threads I made but no one seemed to give it any attention.
this would actually be a great thing to see in more detail...i two am having trouble making this work...
Again another question... I was making a custom weapon(chaingun) following a Wiki Tutorials pdf file, I had created the model but I cant export it to a .JMS format.
WikiTutorials- DEC 2005 Step 1. ok, click on File > export. Step 6. /data/weapons/YOUR_WEAPON_NAME/models/ <— thats where you should, and remember, don’t have spaces in your directory name, tool.exe doesn’t like it, type in a name for your model, open the file types and find JMS, NOT JMA
The tut says to use GMax/3DS Max, Im using GMax. But the problem is, I cant export into neither a .3DS format nor a .jms format as the tut says. What should I do? I'm trying to get a trial version of 3DS but it keeps giving an error and wont let me download. So what do I do?
Exporting in a .jms format is easy enough. You need to use [COLOR=blue]this[/COLOR]. It's a script for gmax that allows you to export models in a .jms format. You need to run it in a normal script way for gmax (script, run script, select the .ms file). I'll work on your other questions when I have more time. Sorry.
I have problems with that script, I click on the export button and nothing happens. No errors or anything, just plain nothing. I tried exporting and JMS isn't an option. Any ideas?
Try using [COLOR=blue]chimp[/COLOR]. Does the same, different script.
But wait, I got chimp but wasn't it used only to make jms files out of the BSP's? If not, I wasnt future-sighted:lol:
Nope. Chimp can be used for converting weapons and stuff as well, but it's not as good as Bluestreak by any stretch.
But on the TheGhost's site, I'm sure it said Chimp could only do BSPs. Not that it even does that for me. I sometimes wonder if it's me versus technology....
Yea, I couldn't make a single map using chimp, it always gave me open-edge errors. And I cant see how to fix it. I tried to import the wrl file but nothing happened. And I tried to make a Halo 2 Wraith and a wierd Captain Keyes but Chimp didn't work, gave me errors saying "Frame object not found".I made a 'frame' but it seemed to be doing work, but Tool gave me a lot of errors. And when I tried to save it as a JMS using an exporter script, it gave me a error saying "No geometry found" or something. But I had already imported a Wraith using a BlueStreak importer. So now I cant see how to export JMS models. P.S.- Offtopic but...please take a look at my PoTD. :D
