Hi guys, first of all I am a big fan of Jagged Alliance, and altough I haven't posted a lot, I've always been here in the "shadows" watching all the progression has been made by all of you guys... So thank you for creating these great mods. Now let's get to the business. The last few days I wanted to change the graphics of some certain weapons, and I started with the FN 2000 Tactical. I managed do extract the bitmap file with the "STI editor" or viewer, not really sure, and I managed to save it as a sti file after the picture was made.

After the new graphic was made I wanted to use it on the JA 2 1.13 Urban Chaos/AFS, but no matter where I placed the file(I checked the xml file, so the pic was the correct one), Data 1.13, BigItems, etc. (where it was supposed to be, or at least I think so...) the new graphic wouldn't show up.

Anyway, I tried several options but couldn't make it work so in the end I got nervous and left it like that...

The next day I said to give it one more try, and I managed to make the pic show on the official mod "Jagged Alliance 2 1.13". But it only shows on Bobby Ray's and when I see the description. I can't see it on the inventory as it's the old graphic of the FN 2000.

So my questions are, could anyone help me out in telling me how I can manage to make it show also on the inventory. And if I succeed, maybe tell me how I can make it show in the UC/AFS version of Ja2.

Thank you very much!

I also changed the QBZ-97. Let me know if you like it, I would be happy to share the bmp files if you are interested in using these weapons graphics.

Thank you very much! Today I tried to perfectionate myself and I think I acomplished that. I made a totally new gun, the "SIG MCX VIRTUS SBR". I think it looks great, but I am having problems in adding it as a new gun. I can't seem to fire with it if I create a new item in XML Editor. I was thinking of copying maybe the lines from another gun and just use STI editor to add the graphics files only. What do you think? Also I can't seem to find the exact specification for this model, but I loved the way it looks... very cool.
