Hey, I am new to modding, and I haven't the slightest clue as to how I could possibly change the weapon effects in Jedi academy. I was told it could be done so using efx... any help would be appreciated.
Yes. The real power is in the effects.efx files. You can find them in the effects/weaponNameHere directory. Most weapons have an wall_impact, shot, and alt_shot. There are others, but they vary from weapon to weapon. Open up assets1.pk3 with pakscape to view all of them. I suggest looking at what raven did in theirs and then mimicking it in your mod. I suggest just messing around until you learn your way around it. Download other weapon mods and look at how they did it. Eventually you will get a feel on how to use them. You can download EffectsEd, which is a tool for viewing the effects out of the game. You can also modify them. You can get the file here. It comes with a bunch of other useful modding tools.
