v1.0 - First public release made by Bladerunnercutter. - Now almost all weapons have a mounted flashlight attached.
"So, why a new weapon mounted lights mod, and what are the differences ?"
The only difference, is that this (all weapons) light mods moves with the barrel of your weapon, instead of being stationary ( fixed in the center of the screen ) like the other mods. Thats it , nothing else.
Slayer 2 asked me if the movement on my shotgun light ( in my mod) could be fixed, so that it won't be stationary, and that it would move with the barrel of your weapon ( like the pistol and machine gun light).
I asked if Slayer 2 had tried the Rhino Squad Light mod, and he said that it was the same as in my shotgun, it was stationary ( centered and never moving ).
So I went through all the stock U.S. version 1.0 Q4 weapon defs, and found the answer. Now all weapons have mounted lights, and are stock defs with no tweaking other than the weapon mounted lights added and some other small fixes/updated features.
All weapon lights move with the barrel of your weapon, but when the player try to turn on/off the light on the current weapon, it does, but returns to the MG if the player has one or blaster if not.
I think that the game looks for an md5 animation for the current weapon and if it does not have one ( only the blaster and machine gun do), it defaults to MG if the player have it or blaster if not. :(
Note!: Try to fix the forced return to MG or blaster when the player press the ON/OFF key to turn the current mounted flashlight.
-Just drop the mod folder into Quake 4 root folder, not into q4base folder, ok ?
-Enjoy yourself. :D
On a final note i want to remember all the Q4 users that feedback is always welcome and very appreciated, because it helps a lot to improve the mod. :D
