The .ent files that hold the basic data like how much damage the weapon does and the maximum speed for a takn are just text files, so they are really easy to edit. Most of the images are in .bmp format, so they can be edited with just about any image editor. The 3D mesh files need a 3D program like 3D studio max, which costs quite a bit, so there harder to do.

like charlie said its easy to edit. TM made it easy to edit. The basic idea is if it says projectilespeed = 100 you just change it to 200 or something. And the layout is pretty easy to follow. The stuff you change is in a .ent format and notepad can open them.

ok thanks for the replys.

Now my friend and i are playing the demo for now (buying SOON). How hard would it be (in full game) to make a mod that only one type of weapon respawned?

It's damned easy, man, damned easy.
In each weapon .ent, each gun has a 'value'. Set the gun's value to like '100000' and it will be the only gun to spawn. (Kaeto, you've done this before, add comments )
