View Full Version : changing weapon model and texture runtime

21st Sep 2001, 05:52 AM
I can change the texture/skin of the player weapon runtume, that is no problem, but is there a way to only change the skin of the 3rd person view model and not the1st person view model?


I have a knife. Players looking at me should see a bloody red knife. Me, the player holding the knife, should see a normal, non-bloody knife. Or vice versa, this was just a boring example ;)

I can only see the multiskin property for the weapon, not a multiskin for 3rd person or 1st person model :(

Thanks for any help!

they share them.

Yes, yes, I know that, but is there a way to go around it?

I guess I have to make a separate model for each weapon that is supposed to have a different texture. It seems to be the only way.

Make multiple textures and don't use the same ones on 1st and 3rd person models, by exchanging the textures you might get your desired result (might :P )

you could maybe hack in renderoverlays and let it make an actor with the 1st person mesh and the right textures, and let it render that actor instead.
