  • Is there a lightning gun fix around?

    I was wondering if there is any fix for the UT2004 lightning gun? I can't find anything anywhere.

    Are you referring to the bug with the Lightning Gun that crashes servers? If so I'd be interested in that as well.

        He probably refers to the Lightning Gun's one sided part/visual bug at its barrel. It is possible to fix it, Skred did it in the UCBP, it was one of the first things he did when he was improving the original skins (Translocator/Lightning Gun/Shield Gun). I'm not sure anymore how he did it (I think it was a combiner) and the thread is quite long, but he mentioned it there afaIk, sorry if I can't give you a clearer answer, maybe you would want to check it yourself and ask someone to code a mutator to replace the skin with the new one?

          bTwoSided = true;

            Was it that? I thought that didn't work... *insert thoughtful emoticon here*

            But now that you say it, I think you're right, I think he used in fact a shader with just bTwoSided = true...

              What would I want to set bTwoSided to true? I want a fix so I don't have to use a mutator, for when playing the Single Player tournament or online.

                  Sorry, that is impossible. It would require editing of the original Lightning Gun code such as editing of an official package, that would break online compatibility.

                    I don't really play online anyways, ping is way too high. Is there a way to fix it and just play offline?

                      A mutator is really the easiest way... Do you really mind it so much in the SP ladder?

                        Not really then. Is there a mutator to fix it?

                          Dunno but temporary. Not sure how the lightning gun have issues with it on your own idea.

                            The twosided issue is what I'm talking about. It just looks really weird to me and bugs me.

                              Yea, making a mutator for that should be simple. You need to find the texture that the weapon uses (from the animations tab), then create a shader in a new package and set it to be two-sided. Then create a simple mutator that sets the skin of all lightning guns to your custom one on CheckReplacement().
