is it possible to put a mod in a dll file (like jampgamex86.dll) or put it out?

I don't believe so, because a DLL file is simply information, unlike skins. You'd need a DLL reader to be sure, and I don't think there is a free copy floating around.

an information? well that's weird because when I load a mod with pakscape, (not all mods but some of them) there are those 3 dll: jampgamex86.dll, uix86.dll, cgamex86.dll. and folders with shaders, gfx... And I delete all folders in it to check something exept those 3 dll. I save the pk3 (with only those dll) and the mod still works in the game when I load it exept some very few textures error (that were included in the folders I deleted before) but the system (like stances or weapons) works correctly. So I was wondering if there was mods in the dll you know what I mean?

DLL and EXE files are the actual program or engine. But no, you can't really mod dll files unless you have a nice program or the original source code.

Yes, those files can be altered, but not without special software. You find those files because they edited the actual source of the game.

I'm sure Microsoft has a C++ reader, but you'd need a level of coding knowledge. I don't think there is a free copy, however.

oh well i'm not a pro in coding at all so nevermind the program. But one last question: is there a program that can merge two dll ? not replace but merge so it adds new sources? I'm shure it must exist exept if the moders are real experts at coding.

no i dont its possible, becouse of they are probably linked to eachother. and if you merge them, then they only have ONE fileName.
