Hi there i wanted to ask if someone knows how to add effects (.efx files) to models and skins (meaning player models and player skins) or certain textures. If it's possible, that's it. I only know so far how to add effect to map/weapon. Any help welcomed!

Do you know how to add an effect to a weapon? If you do, wouldn't it be done just the same on models? And also, if you do know, would you be kind and tell me how to? ^^

Adding effect to weapons is kinda similiar as adding effect to saber. Open assets1.pk3, ext_data folder and weapons.dat. There you'll find things like muzzleeffect and such. Try experiment with those a bit ;). -Coughs- it's not exactly ON the weapon, but it looks ok too o_o...

Doesn't that require any tags in the weapon model itself? Or how does the effect know where exactly to display? Or are all the weapons of approx. the same size so that it doesn't matter?

I think if you would make effect bigger than weapon, it wouldn't matter.
