ok, Rex R informs me that im an idiot. not his words of course, he was quite pleasant about it . but he did find the problem with the Lobber looking like a cube.
1) re-download the lobber zip file from my slow server (which hopefully will be changed today).
2) re-download just the bad files which i have posted (but they are small, so my slow server shouldnt be a problem)
3) make the adjustments yourself.
strangely enough its the same problem that A2597 had with the shark. a stinkin typo in the projectile and weapon files. where it calls for the high res mesh i have in there low instead of lwo.
open up both the weapon file Lobber.ent and the projectile file Lobberpro.ent and change the mesh lines which say ...Lobber.low to read Lobber.lwo. within those same lines it also says LobberL.low. this was from a test i was doing that i forgot to remove, get rid of that trailing "L".
this happpened because i was working on a weapon (the Battle Tank) which is based on the shark, so i had coppied the shark files to work from. when i started on the lobber i just took the Battle Tank files because they were convienient and started with those. thus the evil typo continued.
I should mention that in my other post asking about this A2597 did mention the problem with the shark and thus was 100% right. after he said that i looked at my files and the land shark files and STILL didnt see the typo even tho i knew what i was looking for AND was looking right at it... dyslexia? who knows...
Thanks Rex R for pointing it out and sorry A2597 for getting all dyslexic
