Bit of a misleading filename here, in that it doesn't actually set all the guns to black. In summary, the changes are relatively minor.
First up is the E-11. Notice how it has a brown tint? Well, the textures have now gone through the good ol' desaturate->darken process, leaving the gun black as the title says, but relatively undetailed.
The disruptor has also had a change, what looks to me like desaturate->lighten->+contrast. The whole gun is essentially recolored uniform silver. The author is under the false impression that the Star Wars weapons are made entirely of metal, y'see, and also under the impression that metal is always grey or black. In actual fact, metal is usually not even black until it's painted, and using the same logic it's not entirely unusual to see metals painted in different colors. Hence why we have blue cars, green cars, purple cars (yes, I have seen purple cars), etc.
Chances are you'll also have to rename the pk3 file for this to work, as the author has foolishly included brackets and a period in the filename. Simple rule for pk3 files - and archive files that you upload to us - is that filenames should consist only of letters, numbers, and underscores.
Well, it's a simple mod, if it takes your fancy then download away. Well, you're going to have to download it anyway in order to find out whether it takes your fancy or not. Or incidentally, you could instead opt to take a three-day weekend in Hawaii. Completely unrelated to the file.... but still a very good idea!
******************************** Star Wars: Jedi Knight: Jedi Academy ******************************** Title: Black Guns (1.1) Author: ragen45 Email: email@example.com Website: http://members.iquest.net/~cbooth/index.html Completion date: March 2008 Description: For some reason Raven decided that it would be cool to take the E-11 from Star Wars and make it light brown instead of black. Raven also figured that while they were at it they would make all of the other weapons tan instead of black or grey like metal should be. So I took the cool Disruptor weapon and made it silver (like metal), and restored the E-11 to its original glory - black. Enjoy the mod! Version history: 1.1 Took out all weapons except for the E-11 and the Disruptor, and made the Disruptor silver. 1.0 Made the Flechette green and black and the rest of the weapons darker. Installation: Copy and paste the "PK3" file into the folder named "base" within your Jedi Academy directory.
