i have a couple question about melee weapons(hand to hand fighting). I know how to do the codign for the weapon as far as vectors and stuff goes but i am unsure abotu a few things.

1) i want to make the melee the default weapon to start with(and get rid of all of the things you do start with like shield gun, translacator, and assualt rifle.

2)i know how to do animations for normal guns, but i am not sure how to do if for hand to hand combat....IF i jsut take one of the models from UT2k3 and do the animations with him, will the animations i did with the one model carry over to all the other models in the game? Or do i have to do melee animations for each model?

1) check the code for the Arena mutators, its got that kinda stuff in there.
2) Use the MercMaleA skeleton to make the animations and itll work just fine. Theyll look a bit odd on the GMK models (because the male skeleton doesnt have the chicken legs) but its not too noticable, and if it bugs you that much you can draw up the animations on the alien skeleton as well.

my lord, if you make a good looking sword/axe/baton for UT2k3, then i would GLADLY be your bitch, i have been waiting for a good melee weapon for this game since it came out.

Some help- the "Trigun UT" mutator that adds the colt .45 revolver may be of use to you. While it is somewhat buggy in its primary fire... which is oddly enuff probibly its simplest part as far as coding (slow RoF, 1 instant hit projectile per shot), its secondary fire is turning the gun around and striking with the butt of it, an effective pistol whip. Its free of bugs in that aspect, although it steals sound FXfrom half-life. mebey you could check out its coding.
