So I read and applied Niphty's excellent tutorial and have made some great weapons. They work fine if they're the _m1 versions already present in unique_items.

But - if I make one from scratch, even if I add Niphty's Gauss rifle, it shows up, can be used etc. until I get killed. Then the game crashes to desktop.

Here's one I'm really trying to get up and running - a sawn-off that works in weapon slot 1 :

_____________ unique items entry _____________

[wpn_bm16-chove_m1]:wpn_bm16 $spawn = "weapons\uniq\wpn_bm16_m1" description = enc_weapons1_wpn_bm16-chove_m1 inv_name = wpn_bm16-chove_m1 inv_name_short = wpn_bm16-chove_m1 cost = 5 slot = 1

_____________ trader_trader entry _____________

wpn_bm16-chove_m1 = 1, 3

______________ stringtable entry ______________

A one-handed shotty.

string id="wpn_bm16-chove_m1"> Hand-Cannon

It happened in V1.003 of STALKER and also in 1.006.

Thanks for your time

Perhaps you should post something from the Xray crash logfile, it should be in Documents and Settings\All Users\Documents\STALKER-SHOC\logs

you need to rank your new wpn in the the file gamedata\config\mp\mp_ranks.ltx

This is the where the engine looks when an NPC is evaluating a wpn to decide if they will pick it up or not

Mr. Chris and Shadow_State - you were both absolutely right. I read the crash log file and at the end it said that it couldn't spawn the weapon for mp. When I added it as shadow_state said, it worked just fine.

Now I'm gonna roam the Zone with my hand-cannon and modified sniper rifle. :-)
