Ok so im having a problem that maybe someone on here can help me with. Ive got Griffs bat in game and i replaced it with the vice city bat. well when i go to the tool shop right when i start the game its not in the correct position nor the right size. but if i start a new game and do the thugtools cheat it appears correct while holding it then once i go to the tool shop its the right way and size.

now if i dont do the cheat and get the messed up model is all wrong when i hold it... the only way i was able to fix the problem at the moment was to replace it with the golfclub or any other item that doesn't appear in a shop. Is there a way i can fix this

not sure. Thats weird.

Aug 7 2007, 8:22pm Anchor

alwell, we can leave it as the golf club it still looks fine and you still swing it like a bat anyway.

Sorry to say about animations again but you could change machete animations to bat animations too, so it wouldn't make the sounds and such.. And you wouldn't have to do new animations for it, everything just with notepad. I only have problems exporting the animation, everything else is fine.. :(

i know this is a bit late, but nice work on that guitar!

just remember that that scene is in 1955 not 1962 :P

Aug 8 2007, 12:13pm Anchor

and i know the scene takes place in 1955, but Marty is actually playing a Gibson 1963 ES-345TD ... it was a goof from the producers most people wouldn't actually know the year of that exact guitar.

Aug 8 2007, 1:29pm Anchor

Then you should've been a producer on that movie. lol

Aug 8 2007, 1:52pm Anchor

I only

Aug 8 2007, 3:31pm Anchor

hah, yeah its hard to tell. but again, nice work, how do you put a 3d model into the game like that

Aug 8 2007, 5:37pm Anchor

You first make a DFF file then use IMG tool which you can download at or other places then replace an existing dff with your new dff file.

All the following weapons are complete and in game.

Gibson Guitar

Futaba Remote Control

the bat looks simple and it basically is not much i could do with it to make it look unique or cool but it works nonetheless and i tried my hardest on docs sniper... its just so hard because its hard to get a full screen shot of his sniper and its a knock off of a 1865 Winchester but for the movie it has added gold plating extended barrel and telescope so I tried to get it as close to the movie as possible

Aug 8 2007, 7:37pm Anchor

really nice man. dammit i wish i could help out with this mod

Aug 8 2007, 10:00pm Anchor

damn you're fast.

Aug 8 2007, 11:07pm Anchor

I have to say, those look really good, kinglog, keep up the hard work, looking forward to seeing more of your weapons.

Aug 9 2007, 12:01am Anchor

great work. cant wait to see some more stuff from you

Aug 9 2007, 12:35am Anchor

Lol yeah it was faster than i thought it would take me to finish the list you gave me delorean... personally i thought it would take more than a week but only took what like 2 days. Got one more on your list - Colt Peace Maker and that one should hopefully be done within the next 2 days or so

Aug 9 2007, 1:07am Anchor

Just wanted to see what you guys think... I changed the Sniper Scope to more resemble what the scope at the end of docs sniper looks like and i also changed the weapon icon on the hud to the appropriate image and a different color

well dont forget the AK-47 and Biffs Smith & Wesson .357 Magnum 7 shot revolver

Aug 9 2007, 1:35am Anchor

Well why would i need to make the ak-47 when its already in game? And i just got a list from delorean saying what to make so i didn't even think about what gun biff had.

Aug 9 2007, 1:48am Anchor

the gun in the game isnt an ak-47, its a Ruger Mini-14

Aug 9 2007, 1:54am Anchor

Oh well i saw a ak-47 dff file in my img tool so i thought it was in game i couldn't remember....

what do you guys think of the icons on the hud... because if i need to change them i need to stop making them for the rest of the weapons.

Aug 9 2007, 2:06am Anchor

I like them, nice to have a fresh weapons hud in the game.

And everything in the game is getting replaced, or not exactly everything but it's a total conversion, the map is changed, nothing old left, pedestrians changed, weapons changed, missions changed, etc. That rifle is awesome, you've modeled those pretty fast too, maybe we have all needed at 0.3 :) BTW where in the movie is an AK? Or are you just adding it for fun

Aug 9 2007, 4:31am Anchor

lybians had one

Aug 9 2007, 5:30am Anchor

ak-47 was in gta3, but not vice city.
