Post Burst fire and alt ammo
ok I made me a gun that has two types of ammo using Crickets script. Then I tried to add the Vanilla script for burst fire to the alternate gun.

Problem is no matter what I have tried it only does one of the scripts.

It fires in burst but then wont switch back to the main when I select Gold Dig OR it switches but fires full auto. It is always one or the other never both.

I have tried putting two scripts in the .ini but it seems to choose one at random



I have tried adding the burst fire to the switch ammo script itself but it only does whichever script is first.



Am I just adding it wrong or what can i do to fix this?

Thank you

Multiple ammo via CC48's old script has now become obsolete. You can now attach scripts directly to guns, making the whole process far easier.

Scratch that, I forgot he updated it.

You can't attach two scriptpaths to one entity I'm afraid. :)

Also, you'll need to add all Create(Self) bits under the Create(Self) section and all the Update(Self) bits need to go in the Update(Self) section. So you can't have more than 1 Update(Self) section.
(It's what I found out anyway. Please correct me if I am wrong.)

If you look at the last downloadable unitec version, the alternate .lua files have been edited, merging the burst fire bit with the gun changing bit. Feel free to use them. :)

Yay! I helped with lua! Sort of... >_>

I am really clualess, but if you need help merging lua scripts then I can at least help you with that. Feel free to pm them to me. :grin:

It looks like we'll have pie menu slices available for modding before long, [see: drl twitter & mod contest thread] so you might want to hold off on putting a lot of effort into either of those features until that's been implemented, so you can have an easier control method for those features in the first place.
