The original weapons don't have the +DUALWIELD flag, so they couldn't conflict unless someone used the sprites in a +DUALWIELD gun.

Pipe dreams, I guess. I'd love to see this implemented in the future, though.

However, if you 'Duel Weild' weapons, that could just count as one weapon, thats right, to trick the .exe into thinking 2 guns = 1 gun. Though I'm not sure how to do this, I'll probably think of a way.

But this is not 'straightforward'. I never said it is impossible to implement dual weapons.

Well, Lemme take a stab at it with just plain ACS and we'll see what we can do from there, because i've been planning on playing around with this concept with ACS and the assignment of a acs_execute special to alt-fire... So gimmie a few days to finish vehicles, and I'll see if i can at least create something like this with ACS....

ACS? Why use ACS?

I'm sure some hack can be done with just plain DECORATE weaponry. In order for me to pull it off right however I'll need AltFlash states.

ACS because of the fact you want to mix and match your weapons right? The concept i'm going to be playing with will enable you to mix any of your decorate weapons with eachother.... Still figuring out all the little minor details to get it all working..

I see.

I just want to build a weapon where the left and right weapons do not interfere with each other is all. But I need a flash state for the altfire to pull it off.

Yeah, What I'm trying to pull is 100% real dual weaponry. And the only way to really do that is to well... I'm not telling because i want to do it first :P Expect me to show off some kind of product within the near future.
