  1. Oh dear, you modified "mods\bf2" do not do that, unless your friends are willing to give up playing vanilla all together for your mod. You shoudl copy bf2 folder, paste it as your mod name. Delete Objects_client.zip and common_server, common_client. Fonts and menu isn't useful yet, so i'd delete it as well. You should read to EA tutorials, which should be of use. Copy map files you want your mod to have, delete client.zip and the .md5 files. I would pretty much delete everything client because thats all being loaded by bf2. Then change "serverarchieves.con" and "clientarchieves.con" to load things from your mod. Here's an example of what i did with mine clientarchieves rem ***1on1*** fileManager.mountArchive Objects_client.zip Objects fileManager.mountArchive Common_client.zip Common fileManager.mountArchive Menu_client.zip Menu fileManager.mountArchive Shaders_client.zip Shaders fileManager.mountArchive Fonts_client.zip Fonts fileManager.mountArchive 1on1boost_client.zip Objects rem ***BF2*** fileManager.mountArchive mods/bf2/Objects_client.zip Objects fileManager.mountArchive mods/bf2/Common_client.zip Common fileManager.mountArchive mods/bf2/Menu_client.zip Menu fileManager.mountArchive mods/bf2/Fonts_client.zip Fonts fileManager.mountArchive mods/bf2/Shaders_client.zip Shaders fileManager.mountArchive mods/bf2/Booster_client.zip Objects rem ***Special Forces*** fileManager.mountArchive mods/xpack/Objects_client.zip Objects fileManager.mountArchive mods/xpack/Menu_client.zip Menu fileManager.mountArchive mods/xpack/Fonts_client.zip Fonts fileManager.mountArchive mods/xpack/Common_client.zip Common serverarchieves fileManager.mountArchive Objects_server.zip Objects fileManager.mountArchive Menu_server.zip Menu fileManager.mountArchive Common_server.zip Common fileManager.mountArchive Booster_server.zip Objects fileManager.mountArchive 1on1boost_server.zip Objects fileManager.mountArchive Warbirds2_objects.zip Objects fileManager.mountArchive mods/xpack/Objects_server.zip Objects fileManager.mountArchive mods/xpack/Menu_server.zip Menu fileManager.mountArchive mods/xpack/Common_server.zip Common fileManager.mountArchive mods/bf2/Objects_server.zip Objects fileManager.mountArchive mods/bf2/Menu_server.zip Menu fileManager.mountArchive mods/bf2/Common_server.zip Common fileManager.mountArchive mods/bf2/Booster_server.zip Objects
  2. Wow, texture's good but it looks like it will need some smooth groups to fix up those faced round edges. Where did you get this ?
  3. Hehe Bergerkiller, i see that you have gained some insight about game engines from your VB game project
  4. Cool, it works with many pictures. As a feature, it changes the background when logging in as well . Though, having 1 last issue with the news ticker. Here's an example... As you can see here, there is an unwanted newsticker. Getting very frustrating as I can't find the code in flash, just a sprite that is a grey colour. Also, as stated before, I am using the sandbox menu here: http://sandboxmod.com/forums/viewtopic.php?id=510
  5. Wow, cheers!<br><br>It loads "Strokes_small.png" for the menu, after login it would occasionally change between "Bokeh4_small.png" and "Dirty2_small.png". I guess your code works, but how would i change this if I had 7 images? How would that affect the code?<div><br></div><div>EDIT: Unrelated problem, but still annoying lol. Everytime I login, even with internet disconnected, it loads a newsticker that says "go to sandbox to download latest version and avoid being disappointed" Now i'm finding it hard to find the line of code that even raises that in flash, but it must be somewhere. If I run the SWF directly it says<br><br>where the ticker is "http://sandboxmod.com/ingame/newsticker .1.0.0.png". Now I find this strange, as the newsticker image is not even in the flash images folder, and if it is loading from online, i wonder how it does that even when i switch off the internet </div>
  6. Trying to get the sandbox menu for my mod, and after finding the source files and spending a long time getting the fonts working, i now have a working flash menu for my mod. But, that's not enough . I've been working together to try implement a feature that should be do-able. A Randomised background, that changes each time the mod is loaded. With plenty of background images, it should add a nice variety within the mod. The problem, however, is the code. h = ["Strokes_small.png", "Dirty2_small.png", "Bokeh4_small.png"]; i = 3 //Catches the number of values inside the "h" array j = Math.floor(Math.random()*i); //A random value, with a ceiling equal to the length of the "h" array k = h[j] //Defines the path for the background to be used. this.background_img.loadImg(k) Now, if i change "this.background_img.loadImg(k)" to the image filename, which is located at the root of the mainmenu, to simplify things, it does actually work, but it only loads 1 image, which defeats the purpose of this code.
  7. Haha i love all these ingenious solutions! Will post results.
  8. I'm finding it hard to get it working at all, please post your code for that weapon. I'm guessing the soldier throws the cd on the X axis
  9. Ah sounds cool, btw what is "AOL_CD_07_ver6_goldLions?" is it a projectile?
  10. Hmm i have tried that, but (at least in bfeditor), it doesn't spin (using continous rotation speed), please explain about the materials, don't know much about that, thanks. Basically this is how it should work: "Fire" the knife. Knife projectile comes out spinning vertically, hits player, kills them. If it hits a wall then it sticks. Doesn't work ingame either, just tested - unrotating...

  11. Now that would be a cool feature , Just like BadCo 2, or CoD.
  12. Is this PR specific? Can't you always go though 3rd person with "C"?
  13. Downloaded latest python from the website, UAC control completely off - bar down all the way. Didn't run any compatibility options (except for bf editor which won't work unless you run in winXP).
  14. Yes! Got new computer with Windows 7 (64-bit). Any CMD-based program on my Windows Vista (32-bit) CTD the moment it was commanded to do something. Glad I can finally follow this tutorial again
  15. SAW has more than 10 parts, figured out a solution when i made red dot sight M249 SAW. If a weapon has more than 10 parts, it should be named "001" instead of "1", so 3p meshes are allright, just 1p ones aren't. USLMG_M249SAW 001 002 003 004 005 007 008 009 010 ect...
  16. I've been pulling my hair at a recent problem i have created, rotating projectiles. I have been wanting to do a nice "Thowing Knife". Added a force object, but found that constant force works, but there is not "rotational-constant force". I managed to make the projectile, slowed it down so i can tinker it (quite eerie, heaps of knifes moving very slowly at a constant speed). But could only get it to curve like "bullet-drop". Anybody no of a solution to making a nice rotating knife effect?
  17. Hmmmm i can only get this tutorial to work on WinXP, shame that I have the vista computer now When I run the "CreateNavmesh.bat", it says "Modname", "LevelName", then I enter in those names (CoRrEcTCaSe as well), and the cmd window crashes instantly. I tried running "Navmesh.exe" instead, however when i did run it it said "This application has failed to start because gts.dll was not found. Re-installing the application may fix this problem." Anybody got any spare gts.dll files?

  19. Not as awesome as the real deal...
  20. I was going around Google Sketchup looking for Models for GoogleEarth when i saw the Statue of Liberty. I thought it was pretty cool, however it was very low-poly. After a while i found one available for free on shareGC, i think it was. It came in a .max file with the "Meshsmooth" modifier on, so thankfully I could turn that off and use it as a bf2 staticmesh After some optimisations and reconstructions around some of the areas (particularly the base), I was able to start the UVW mapping. I mostly used bf2 textures apart from the green rusted copper. The textures look a little Low-Quality, but that's because the Object is full scale! The soldier col mesh was made very basically. I plan on using it on a sort of "Liberty Island" map, where MEC invades US in New York. I need to make the Statue of Liberty base now, that is that star looking thing underneath. You will see by the screenshots, it may need a new texture (Not very good at UVW mapping)
