[Modding] making claws do cut damage
Hey guys im trying to do what should have been done from the begenning.making the wolverine claws do cut damage so that i can cut legs and hands but i cant seem to do it...

I extracted the inventory_gen.scr from data0.pak using winrar. And under wolverineclawsgen i set the cutting mult of both hand and legs to 1.0.when i saved and fired up the game my inventory ALL WEAPONS were wiped :(...
So no matter how many times i try to mod the inventory_gen.scr my whole ingame inventory is not detected by game.....

Please anyone with a modding knowledge help would be appriciated

Only in Source games and multiplayer. It's your toy to mess with if you buy it so long as it doesn'r conflict with others' games.

Instead of 1.0, you should try just 1 or "true."

Because it is affecting other things, that indicates you have a syntax error that is stopping the game from processing the file. Check you lines carefully, including the ; at the end and the } that closes the individual item.

What you actually want to change is:
Melee_ClawsWolverinegen are the Feral Claws, and won't affect the other types. The more common version is Melee_ClawsGen.

change
DamageType(DamageType_Punch1);
to
DamageType(DamageType_Cut);

change
HeadSmashProb(1.0);
HeadCutProb(0.0);
ArmsCutProb(0.0);
LegsCutProb(0.0);

to
HeadSmashProb(0.0);
HeadCutProb(1.0);
ArmsCutProb(1.0);
LegsCutProb(1.0);


Leave everything else alone.


The file goes in C:\Users\YOURUSERNAME\Documents\Riptide\out\Data. Do not try to put it back into the original PAK file.

I see but if i change it to damage type cut i think my john will level up in blade weapon types instead of hth types... Wont he?
Also if i am only modifying claw weapons why did my shotgun and knife also disappeared from my inventory?

It stops loading the file if it encounters a syntax error, and therefore, anything loaded from the file is unavailable... so, since it is not loading the file, you have a syntax error somewhere.

I think it is the ItemType(ItemType_Knuckles); that determines the skill used, not the damage type.

Okay it did work now :) and its also leveling up my hth skill
I guess i kept forgetting to change damagetype from punch1 to cut...thats why it was not loading the file and my inventory was getting wiped.
Now i also changed the damagetype and the head/arm/leg cut to 1.0 and it worked
Also i had to change all the upgrade varaints damage type to cut as well or getting weapon upgrade was crashing game

Really playing as a true wolverine feels soooo badass now :D
Thanx for the help :D
