  • I certainly wish, but I was messing around with the built-in particles in Episode 2. It surprised me that nobody was using these yet.

  • Nice job managing to make it use info_particles. [QUOTE=CowThing;19226157]Looks pretty, did you make the effects yourself?[/QUOTE] Nops. The effects are from Valve's Orange Box (Ep2). :)

  • Really great weapon! Everything works except for the secondary fire which gives me this lua error: weapons\weapon_base\shared.lua:188: attempt to perform arithmetic on local 'num' (a nil value) and I think that the combine portal should disappear after a while, since it will be there until map change.. or if you could make some sort of missile to close it (like in episode 2).

  • Thanks everyone for your comments! [QUOTE=MCZorba;19227939]S-S-S-Super Jizz, jizz, jizz, jizz...

(can someone find me the source for weapon_base?) As for the combine portal thing, I could probably do that. The initial idea was it was an epic explosion that blew up everything on the map so you'd probably be changing anyway, but I can put that in the second release.

  • how do you open the portal? Anways, I also get: | weapons\weapon_base\shared.lua:188: attempt to perform arithmetic on local 'num' (a nil value) | when I use secondary fire, and there is no effect for the primary fire, just a bullet hole, and the secondary fire has no effects.

Can't do anything about that.

  • It's not bad but it could be done to have better attacks. They seem kind of simple right now, like they're just good looking attacks but without an actual attack if you get what i mean.

  • why not make it so that when you do the portal thing, it actually does the rt camera thing in the middle. like a real portal

I tried to put effort into the attacks. Explode causes splash damage, shock causes your enemy to freeze for a short period of time, secondary makes a massive explosion, and the combine rift destroys everything on the map. [QUOTE=Ningaglio;19283273]why not make it so that when you do the portal thing, it actually does the rt camera thing in the middle. like a real portal[/QUOTE] Well, what would it point to?
