fix 3rd person laser sights

Post by PotatoGlados1 » 03 Aug 2012, 16:55

Would it be possible to fix the laser sights in third person? When you equip a lasersight it doesnt appear in third person

There isn't a fix, because there is no file in the game files for a third person laser. Unless somebody tinkered with the vmt or vtf of the laser and made it accessible in third person, it's probably not going to happen.

well I know how to tinker with vtf/vmt's.... but could you point me in the right direction on how to get it to work

Try checking the vmt. There will likely be something about them appearing in third person. If that doesn't work, try opening the vtf, and there might be a black open space, and try copying the laser into that open space, and it might work.

there's nothing about third or first person related codes in the vmt for any of the lasers. and yeah there's some black space but I don't see effect it would have on it not showing up in third person if I just filled in the blanks :/
