View Full Version : The saber-through-the-back problem

09-26-2002, 10:49 AM
Can anyone explain how to solve this in terms a relative newbie can understand? It's discussed in the adding-NPCs thread, but I really don't get it.

(I've created a new NPC by reskinning a Reborn, but he holds his gun in his crotch, a most uncomfortable way to fire a weapon, and his lightsaber comes out of, well, someplace any doctor will tell you never to stick a lightsaber.)

make sure his spawnname is something like "reborn....". That should fix it. And don't change the enemy/player teams on the characters, that doesn't work either.

Here's what I have in my .npc file:

Yes, I have changed all the folder names appropriately. ;)

The saber still comes out his back, and he still holds his rifle in his crotch.

the entry looks fine.

All i can think of then is that the model directory isn't right.

Another mystery solved. It turns out it's case-sensitive. A RebornJawa is not the same thing as a rebornjawa. The later works!

LOL, I never realised that. I always typed lowercase because everthing in the pk3's were lowercase. I guess you really do learn something new every day.:)
