    I just went an' played GE a bit to see what the muzzle flash looked like, and found out that you was wrong about something. You can shoot through people!

    And the laser actually works sorta like the shock beam laser. It hits instantly, but you see the beam travel towords where it hit. So how should I make it work? Should it be completely instant, like my laser pistol, or have it fire more like a really fast version of the shock beam?

    I also found that it takes four hits to kill people, unless its a headshot, so I'll make it do 30 damage unless its a headshot, in which case it will do 200 damage.

    I was also surprised to find how accurate my skin actually was. :)

    well I don't understand how zooming in, meaning your FOV is closer to the beam when you fire, will not produce lag when you do fire.

    you CAN fire through people? Well I haven't had that game in a long time now. :)

    Would it be hard to make it fire through people? If not, could you?

    How should it work? hmm... probably instant, is what I would do

    and it was really close, eh? If you can find a screenie of Goldeneye with the laser, and yours in action, I'd like to see the comparison :)

    good work again, I say :)

    but yes you need a crosshair! :p

    Well I don't know how it would make any more lag than when you're not zoomed! Does the game lag when you zoom in real close on other objects? No! So why would it make the laser lag? I think Dragonfly is right about the shock beam. Particle meshes use fewer particles the farther away you are from them.

    No, it wouldn't be any harder to make it shoot through people than walls.

    Okay, instant effect it is.

    Fine, if you must have a crosshair! :)

    Go zoom in full tilt with the Zoom-Instagib rifle and watch the lag when you fire. Available at Modsquad.

    Unless you have a real good system this will produce lag.

    What part of this particle system do you not understand? I'm sure the zoom instagib lags, but this isn't the instagib rifle. It's laser effect is gonna be completely different. One that won't change at all if you get close to it.

    Somethin's wrong with my models. In UEd, the grill is masked, but in-game, it still shows the transparent areas as pink. I don't know why, or how to fix it, which is bad.

    I think he is about the super shock rifle thingy. You sorta explained that, remember? But since this new laser isn't made of particles, it won't change when you zoom in, unlike the original, which would increase the particle density because you were lookin' at it so close.

    Are you sure you do? I hope so.

    The model works pretty well, it's just the grill won't be masked in-game, and also people don't hold the third person model right (even after I moved the weapon triangle, it didn't change). Other than that it's working fine.

    The program I use for recording sounds directly from stuff on the computer (as opposed to using a mic) stopped working when I reinstalled Windows, so I don't know how I'm gonna record the moonraker sounds from my emulator.

    BTW, the current death message is, "Secret agent %k assasinated %o with the %w."

    this may sound dumb but have you tried reinstallin ghtat program?

    I don't know what the hell could have caused that.

    People not holding the third-person model right, big deal. All those people who say "I use their model to see where they're aiming" is full of sh*t. You can NOT effectively use the model, I don't know how people can even say that load of crap and mean it.

    Well if the grill will be pink, as long as it doesn't hamper my aim and isn't too obtrusive, should be alright. I'd ask you try to see whats up with it but don't kill yourself trying to fix it.

    Good death message. I like that one. Just get the %k and %o right, unlike a certain Blast Rifle maker ;)

    The program came with my sound card, and a whole bunch of stuff got messed up when I reinstalled Windows. I don't know how to reinstall it.

    The third person model isn't held really oddly, it points forward, it's just that people hold it underneath the front of the barrel, sorta.

    I can't have the grill be pink! It's bad! It must be masked! But I don't know why it's not working! The fact that UEd uses software mode probably has something to do with it as Neuroflare pointed out, but I don't know how I might repair it. Stupid thingy! I could model the grill as several seperate pieces, instead of just one masked piece, but that would increase the poly count by about 14 polies.

    That doesn't sound like a whole lot in game but sounds like a royal pain in the ass to do.

    There has to be another way.

    Can you go to Add/Remove Programs and uninstall/reinstall that way? Don't mess with anything you don't know, great way to screw up your computer. Take it from someone who knows.....

    What sounds like a pain, making the grill all seperate-like? Not really, and I think it might only add 12 polies

    There's not much in Add/Remove. A bunch of stuff disappeared from that when I reinstalled Windows. There's also something in Add/Remove that I've uninstalled, but it won't leave the Add/Remove thingy.

    Jonas wants me to make it so you can have mixed weapons in your left and right hands for Tempus, but I don't know if I can do it. I don't even really understand akimbo weapons.

    I wish school wasn't starting so soon.

    well yeah but modeling that grill as a whole bunch of little pieces would suck.... it sounds like a b*tch to do.

    You don't understand Akimbo? Interesting, I can't even begin to start my own weapons ;)

    [edit] oh yeah, and SCHOOL SUCKS CRAP [/edit]

    It's only 7 pieces. You must think modelling is quite difficult.

    I sorta understand how it works, but the code is, like, blah...

    School messes EVERYTHING up!

    I'm sure college is just fine, but I'm not in college. I'm starting high school. Junior high was just really bad for me (partly because everyone seemed to lose a large piece of their brain over the previous summer...), and I can't help but expect the same from high school.

    Anyway, I haven't worked much on the laser lately, but it shall be completed. I'm starting a nifty upgrade gun, which is gonna be nifty!

    Trust me High school is much better then middle.

    Smoke beating up fresh is so fun, especialy since most of them only come up to my chest, its like clubinh baby seals or hunting armodillos.

    I have made mixed weapons, hard as stripes, but possible.


    And expect a upgrade tutorial soon
