An way to fix v_model (Pre-LaW(?)) animations?

A Forum Thread for Team Fortress 2

I like custom animations, but the good ones are broken ._.

I posted an Request not long ago for an fix for this mod: (It was not fixed though, not that i'm upset ._.)

But, now i decided to try and fix it myself. It is an v_model custom animation. But, i don't know how to fix v and w_models. If anyone knows how to fix these, tell me, and i will try to make a fix myself :)

[It uses these files: v_knife_spy.dx80AND90.vtx, v_knife_spy.mdl, v_knife_spy.sw.vtx and v_knife_spy.vvd. Extensions are .vtx, .mdl and .vvd . All v_models]

    You don't, the game doesn't use v_models anymore, just c_models and external animation files. So what you probably have to do is decompile  that animation file and put the right animation in the right slot.
