Flamethrower and Guitar for Melee

03-05-2004, 01:26 PM
This is a funky release. I converted my old flamethrower spade replacement for 1.1 (new hands and stuff) and I'm including Jackhammer's guitar for the American knife. The flamer comes with a sound too! It's a separate wav so it doesn't replace anything.

There's one little bug though: you can hear the shovel hitting the wall sounds and that stuff. I could have replaced them with empty wavs but then you couldn't hear bayonet sounds D: Also beware: thanks to DoD's "improvements", this kills the fps at high resolutions (it worked fine in 3.1b :P ).

Omg, now I can bash people w/ a guitar just like Haruko! :eek:

haha, good stuff...brings back fond memories:D

i remeber d/loading the flamethrower for 3.1, jumping onto a random server, it was schwetz...i patiently camped the water, and got my 1st two flame thrower kills under water..ahhh, the memories:cool:

the guitar, if possible, would be better as a balalaika for the germans, captured from the soviets to use against brits and americans in dod;)

Anyone thinking of Desperado and Once Upon A Time In Mexico when they see the guitar? You really should rip the guitar music from that movie and have it play during the idle.

I love releases like this... As much as I appreciate all the "historically accurate" stuff that gets released it gets a tad boring... I always like to see nonconventional material get some lovin'... Keeps the game fun & fresh... Nice job !

I agree w/ Effexx. I like a change every now and then.
