How to make weapons hidden?

If I set weapons to bHidden = True, they aren't hidden in the game :(((

You can go into the in game options and for the weapon view option choose hidden instead of right.

I think he's asking how to make weapon pickups hidden, so they are kind of a secret. I'm not sure how though...

Oh, silly me; I guess you have to specific with me since I am fairly dense.

Anyhow, you can't. Even if you do get the pickups to be hidden when you play a level... as soon as you put it online, and someone runs it on a server (or you on your server) the server will make it so everyone can see the weapon.

I know this used to be a problem with rotating weapons in unreal 1.

Your best bet is to put them in a walkthrough wall or something.

OW damn...

Would it work if I set their mesh to "none"?

BTW: I've lots of custom graphix used for weapons and pickups (my map is called CTF-Wolfenstein so I use wolf's medkittexture and ammoboxes, and levelup for superhealth,...)

Do the servers keep these graphics for them??

thanks a lot

I think those will keep, though really the main thing that you have to do test it out.

There are only some properties that the server will auto default. You can remove these settings if you can program.
