Infiltration 2.75, version 1.05 extended...about AK47 weapon

Post by gattovicentino »

Hi,
does anyone know if there is some fix (The AK47/Kalashnikov weapon is invisible when using it: some mesh is missing) or has it never been fixed in Infiltration 2.75?

The AK47 was added to InfiltationUT by the 1.05 extended version. In the properties of the AK47, the PlayerViewMesh is given as 'M16first' - which means that there isn't a first person view mesh of the AK47 but the one from the M16 is used instead. Looking at the code for the AK47 we find
Spoiler
function BringUp()
{
cFOV = stdFOV;
bMuzzleFlash = 0;//Hack to remove flash on dropped pickups
//DrawType=DT_None;// since we do not have a FPView Mesh, we reuse the M16 anims and hide the mesh
Super.BringUp();
bLockedOn = false;
}
So, because there isn't a FPView mesh of the AK47, the one that is used is deliberately hidden. AFAIK this hasn't been fixed.

So should I see an M16 in FPView ? But I see no weapon (maybe I have to disable AK47 in Infiltration menu, and "forget" its existence, as if it was normal 2.75 not extended version)

No, the mesh has been hidden by the code for the AK47 - you won't see anything in FPView and this is deliberate, not a bug or a mistake.

OK now it's all clear, so I will change some settings in Infiltration menu (m16 instead of Ak47... I prefer to see the weapon :D )
