I found some backhand lightsabers on jk2files and i wanted to ask if i can make them myself, like a new ext_data and the sabers there are for backhand, or is it necessary to make it via model and animation editing?
so is there a way to make a saber backhand through the sab files?
He didn't say saber models, just backhand behaviour, which may not require a new model.
yeah the model is a lightsaber that already exists but used as a backhand saber
Pretty sure you will need a whole new mdl file for it. If you figure out how to do it without, then the saber might work, but the hilt may be backwards. Either way, a new saber won't hurt much.
