View Full Version : HELP!!! somewhat of a newbie question

16th Nov 2001, 02:00 PM
I've searched the forums and I can't seem to find any examples or tuts with bHideWeapon in them... or bHidden.

destroy would create too much lagg because there'll be a lot of these items in a given map

basically I'm trying to hide a weapon mesh when it fires the projectile, like throwing a ball...

you throw a projectile and and the weapon needs to hide until the pawn catches it again... I've tried it a hundred ways and they've all compiled without error but it still doesn't work!

Probably because first person meshes don't directly answer to display calls. Maybe try messing around with PlayerViewOffset and PlayerViewScale to rescale or reposition the mesh so that it's smaller and drawn offscreen?

Oh no I mean...

I need to hide the 'world view' of the weapon once the
projectile has been fired.. so other players see that
the instigator has empty hands

The fist person view is ok...

Could you see the weapon mesh to none in the fire function and then reset it in the pickup function.

*Set bHidden to true
*Set bOnlyOwnerSee to true (great stuff)
*Make a mesh-animaation that sinks out of existence...
