I have this thing for original content
Ok, chances are everyone in this forum is already using something else for their lmg, but I thought I might post this anyway.
So 2.0 is about to come out, and the old grenade launcher model, which of course was never intended to actually be a grenade launcher, is going to be dusted. So I was thinking, hey, wait a minute, this thing was originally intended to be a machine gun model, right?
So I went ahead and replaced the lmg .mdl's with the gl .mdl's and it worked just fine. I never really liked the lmg model, and imho it looks way better. There's no noticeable jump in frames anywhere, the gl reload is just a few frames longer than the lmg. The only bit that's out of place is the shells eject from near the front of the gun, whereas the clip is located further back, but it's hardly noticeable.
I copied all the files and saved them elsewhere on my harddrive, in case they are overwritten by 2.0, because I intend to use it as my lmg from now on.
