Who wonderful weapons have you created on Worms 4: Mayhem? I have lots... (But i need better ideas...) but there are the best that i have created:

-Super Rifle = A rifle that does about 60 damage!
-Hyper-Bazuka (or Hyper-Bazooka) = A bazooka with the damage of a Dynamite!

Neutron Bomb

A bomb that does 75 damage and releases 25 "neutrons" that cause 75 damage each one ! :eek:

Special Delivery

This burning parcel doesn't do much damage, but it contains 30 "invisible" clusters (you can see the blue trail) that cause 30 damage each one, and make the worms fly away. Yay, fireworks !

I call for someone who has a slighty idea on programming, to make a patch to "switch" to a tweaked game or not... I mean, having a folder called "tweak" or anything, then putting there the files tweaked. If there is a file there, it replaces the original, but only if the "switch" is on...

That helps for tweaks offline, and for legit online. Anyone doing the (seems easy, as CS did something like that for WA) job?

Just a simple batch can work well for this job. :)

@echo off
ren "data\Tweak\WeapTwk.xml" "_weaptwktemp.xml"
ren "data\Tweak\PartTwk.xml" "_parttwktemp.xml"
ren "data\Tweak\Tweak.xml" "_tweaktemp.xml"
copy "W4Tweak\WeapTwk.xml" "data\Tweak\"
copy "W4Tweak\PartTwk.xml" "data\Tweak\"
copy "W4Tweak\Tweak.xml" "data\Tweak\"
"WORMS 4 MAYHEM.exe"
del "data\Tweak\WeapTwk.xml"
del "data\Tweak\PartTwk.xml"
del "data\Tweak\Tweak.xml"
ren "data\Tweak\_weaptwktemp.xml" "WeapTwk.xml"
ren "data\Tweak\_parttwktemp.xml" "PartTwk.xml"
ren "data\Tweak\_tweaktemp.xml" "Tweak.xml"

Here, it loads the files WeapTwk.xml, PartTwk.xml and Tweak.xml in the W4Tweak folder, and then, restores the original files. ;)

But I added a module in my team weapon editor that can load tweaks from a folder too.

i think andrew's tweaker lets you do something like that. go to dream17.co.uk, find a forum, and then the fan stuff section. should be there.

Just wondering, if you got a tweak, and give it to your friend, and you both play with that tweak online without letting others in, are we allowed to do that or something ?

the main concern with tweaks is synchronization. unlike some other games, each worms client runs its own simulation. if tweaks are different, simulations will diverge, causing a sync error, and the game will terminate. main reason they tell you to keep tweaks off-line is because you'd just be crashing other people's games with these.

on the other hand, if you play one-on-one matches, you are not hurting anyone except for yourself and your friend if something goes wrong. w-net servers are just name servers, so they won't be affected. in theory, if you make sure that both of you run exactly the same tweaks, simulations should remain in-sync, and you should be fine. i'm not sure if anyone has actually tried that, though.

And super bazuka or Hyper-Rifle of his weapons are persons right ? :p.

About tweak, we tried it but it keeps crashing after 5-10 turns. and returns the screen where you can go to next round,except there is no button to do that so its time for rh. Why's this happening ?

Perhaps that's because you "generally just make things look different".

quakerworm
11 Jan 2007, 18:28
ah, that could be it. if you don't change behavior of weapons, just the looks, the games should remain in sync, causing no problems. if you add clusters to the sheep, however, you'll probably cause a crash.

GrimOswald
12 Jan 2007, 02:39

Shh. :p

No, tweaked weapons don't work online. Well, tweaked weapon factory weapons do (Including the default ones) but I imagine you already knew that. Tweaking the way things look, such as replacing flag graphics and changing values in WormAttachments works well.

Lag-wise, the more of this stuff you change, the laggier it is, which is a pretty good reason not to take it online. But having one tinsy thing different doesn't hurt. *Coughpunkcyborgscough*

One thing I can't figure out is why custom graves crash the game after a few minutes, even if they haven't appeared. Can anyone explain that to me?

You aren't a moderator. :)

Well, if you want to tweak weapons, you can learn by yourself... it's not that hard (if you understand english).

Or wait for my Weapon Factory Weapon editor, I'm still on it.

Btw, do you want me to disable online playing when too powerful weapons are created ? I can do it, well, tweaked team weapons may be unfair when playing online, but it's so funny on the other hand. :p And they don't mess up the game at all.


Edit : I've just made a funny weapon called "Doom at night". It's a skull that makes the screen become completely black during a few seconds. And during these seconds, you hear explosions, worms shouting, sometimes falling in the water.... and when the light comes back, you notice many that there are many big holes on the ground, and that many worms disappeared... that's freaky...

it is said that to speak a language proficiently, one must know approximately 10,000 words. at a rate of one word every month, you'll be there in no time. less than 850 years, in fact. which, you know, isn't long at all, compared to, say, age of our planet. of course, if you are a human, as opposed to a sequoia tree that might live for well over 2,000 years, your life expectancy might become a problem.

YOU MUST FEAR HAMTARO !

It's an airstrike that drops 30 hamsters that bounce everywhere. Each hamster explodes when it stops moving and does 75 damage to the worms, and 200 to the land. This weapon isn't accurate at all, and it's more powerful on big and high maps.

Depends what you call tweaking I suppose. It looks different, but as I said, it acts like a normal team weapon.

Hehe Kilburn, I also made a Neutron Bomb myself, it does max. worm damage, lots of blast, but very low ground damage (neutron bomb). I made it as an airstrike, the ''Trooper'' model. It wasn't tweaked, just your standard 60-75 damage.

Well, if you complete a mission or beat a time trial thing, then you can unlock stuff such as hats and accessories.
But if you mean for designing weapons, no, everything for the weapons factory are already unlocked.
