Someone should make a replacement for the pistol thatís just a hand doing the pretend gun thing. would go great with a spoken word "BANG" sound effect.

I can't compress it enough to get it hosted here (185kb), but I have a screen shot

If someone wants to host it I will email it to them

Best. Idea. Ever.

But see, make the hands a little more high-poly. Just a little. :D

10-05-2004, 04:20 PM
LOL. I gotta try this out.

Rubber band K98!

Some new animations for this would be cool (although this might be asking for too much). Or maybe just an edit? like making it have massive recoil? xD

Oh, I've got another good idea! Pretend gun! Remove the actual weapon from the v_model, and it looks like your player is pretending to handle and fire a gun.

10-06-2004, 10:47 PM
Good idea.

Is there a way to just make the luger invisible?

...btw guys don't forget to add the "bam!" sounds :D
/edit: and other gun sounds like the "click" when your gun is empty. You can get really creative with the pistol pullout...

heres an idea for some of the animations...


have it pretend to pull a clip out of the 3 fingers at the bottom

out of ammo:

have th finger up at first, and at the end of a clip have the finger go down

I just sent '(4THIDUSA) SSG' an email containing the colt replacement everyone is feverantly anticipating.

BTW. that shot you saw was of the thumb down (hammer-click) of the shoot animation. The thumb is most definately up when in idle mode. I ran all the animations, but if there is a problem or an enhancement you can think of, I might be tempted to change it.

[4thR]HyPeR Good idea.
yes, there is a way to just make the luger invisible, that is esencialy what I did for this weapon, deleted the gun then tweaked the fingers to look like more like how you do finger pistols. If you just remove the gun, it will look like an "air-gun" (see "air-guitar" not "BB-gun")


PanFrie - I think you might like what I did with the reload animations. They are patterned after the colt's so the assumption is that the slide is open when you are loading, I was thinking of pretending to charge the slide, but decided to stay with the originals. Maybe if I feel like it, I will put him charging the slide

lol chargeing the slide would be him lifting his thumb up with his left hand, lol.

Sorry guys but this was done months ago on the CDG forums ;) Don't think a DoD version was released but a CS one was along with the appropriate sounds.

someone needs to make the sounds, or find the sounds that that CS model used.
I might just record my 4-year old shouting "BANG!"
and then "click-click" for the reload and stuff, I might need to tweak the QC file to use different sounds to make it easier to replace... we will see.
