Sniper Sprite Request

09-26-2006, 03:06 PM
I was just curious to know if anyone could possibly help me with the sprite for the Springfield Sniper Rifle. I want its scoped crosshair to be the kar98's, but I have no idea how to acess the files or any of that stuff. Could anyone throw out a zip file with the sprites switched? Sorry I don't even know if it'll be a lot of trouble for someone to do or not, just curious to see if it can be done. Thanks!

Theoratically all you'd have to do is use GCFscape and extract the Kar's vtf or vmt (forgot which it uses) which should be in the Materials folder I believe... It helps if you have a VTF viewer to verify out of the game, then just drop it into the correct sub-folders. If clarification is needed, I'll help you out or go dig for it later.

Messing with the scope sprites gives you consistency errors. I tried putting the Springfield's scope on the Kar just last week, no cigar.

Did you try it on servers without the consistency check on? Or did it get blocked out on a server with consistency off (not fully sure how consistency is setup for a stock server for Source right now...)

I'm not sure, I didn't check. I was not able to join any of the five servers I tried before quitting and putting things back to normal.
