HD M1A1 Weapons in Hand (Beta version)

by General Tacticus

Uploaded May 11th, 2013 for Marathon


This is my first plugin uploaded to this site, it adds hi-res weapon in hand graphics to replace the original, low-res sprites with redone 3d rendered sprites.

Constructive criticism/tips are very welcome.

Version 1.2

revised the hands a bit more, added 3d weapon items.

Not Working

This doesn't seem to work in M1A1 1.3a1 and 1.2.1, returning the error:

"Assertion failed!

File: shapes.cpp

Line: 1635

Expression: bitmap

Was cool using it

But Aleph One 1.1 seems to mess us the size of the weapons.

The plugin appears to cause issues during multiplayer sessions. The player using the plugin tends to get out-of-sync during the match, usually during weapon reloading sequences.

Aside from that, this is a nifty addition that I'm glad you've shared with us.

Woot, now I have a mod. Really cool I must say, but there's definitely a few things I hope to see in the next couple updates. For one, the Magnum and Fusion Pistols are a bit derpy looking. The Fusion pistol doesn't have a lot of detail, almost a grey blob with some red lights. Some detail; maybe it's just the perspective, but I think some more detail would be good. And the Magnum looks REALLY derpy. Too narrow, the scope is too high, too smooth. Doesn't have to be a rectangle but a little but more boxiness would go a long way with it. Also, the rocket launcher doesn't go all the way to the side of the screen. I'd expect that would be a simple fix though. All in all cool, looking forward to the full release.

Edit: So now I've played it a bit. (at first I just went in and scrolled through the weapons) Ok, the MA-75 definitely is awesome looking. Seems to be smoother animations too, which is great. Can't speak on the TOZT, alien gun, or SPNKR as I don't have them yet in this playthrough.

Edit: Oh, and a readme for how to install would be nice. Didn't know how to do this at first.

Love the new weapon models! The assault riffle looks badass and i like the motion blur thing for the fists! Good work!

Reasonable effort

HD weapons for M1A1 have been worked on several times at the Pfhorums, but never completed, so good job at least completing a first iteration.

Some of the weapon graphics are too big and cover up the player's view, especially the napalm and the alien weapon. The pistols are too light of a shade of gray.

I would recommend opening a thread on the Pfhorums in the Projects section. It is a much better place to get feedback. When things are polished up, update this entry on Simplic7y.
