This is a smooth animation mod for the weapons, not a gameplay changer. :?
Where have I seen that same reaction?

Why do you make an assumption that recoil means "gameplay change"? I certainly have demonstrated one term is not bound to the other one.

Blox's BFG isn't bad, but there should be more frames to smooth out the barrel transition between the recoil and going back to the ready state,

The following code makes the plasma rifle fire one round instead of two per fire sequence while keeping the 6-tic fire animation. Though, the "cool down" animation had to be reduced to 17 tics which isn't that bad, IMO.
Spoiler:
Note that you don't have to use this if you don't want to. It's merely a suggestion.

Hmmm, well actually the pistol looked fine to me after Blox' latest tweaks. I think I have to get working on the BFG on my own. :)

It's a bit hard to fit all of that into 10 tics, which is the original delay after firing the BFG. (AFAIR)

Which is why it's so damn silly, I had to cramp all the recoil frames, and some of the black-thingy-goes-up frames into 10 tics.
That can't end well. :v

And updated the pistol once more, again with the extra frame and additional muzzleflash frame from JoeyTD's last post. I hope I got the muzzleflash part somewhat right.

Hi.

I implemented Blue Shadow's plasma rifle code into both WADs and I also extended one of its frames so the "cool off" time would be 20 tics like the original. I also slightly repositioned one of the pistol's frames and sped up the muzzle flash animation. I'm not sure if you're willing to update your first post with these, but here you go anyway.

I checked out the changes for the pistol and plasma rifle and found them appealing. :) All have been added to the files, new uploads in the first post.

Tweaked the plasma rifle a bit, also made it zandronum compatible - though instead of being restricted to a minimum of two shots, you can't fire just two now. (I can't really see how that'd be better than 3, however.)

Hey Blox, think you can incorporate this?

(Haven't downloaded your mod yet, not sure if it's in)

Can't remember who uploaded this... sorry...
