Hi all,

I'm changing my semi-auto weapons (like pistols) to behave more like real guns by 1) removing the time between shots, and 2) stopping them from firing automatically when holding down the mouse button.

Well, I found the time between shots, but I cannot figure out how to stop the gun from firing auto when holding down the mouse button. I'd like to have the gun only fire ONCE per mouse press. Any ideas on this?

- Thanks! smile.gif

i feel ya, semis in gta never felt like semis cause you could just hold down and get the highest firerate. for gta3 i could edit anims but for gta4 im not sure what to do, ive tried a lot of things but it never worked even when i made clip sizes of 1

R* didn't want weapons to work like that. it's one of the stupid mistakes every gta has to repeat(OMG,when will they manage to do the weapons right?)

this idea is not practical because of the cover system.

if every weapon will only fire once per shot than your character will go back into cover after every shot.

it isnt practical.

The cover system itself should have been streamlined to accomodate this. There should be a button for "preparing to fire" (could be CROUCH even) and then he would slightly emerge from cover/raise weapon ready and then fire accordingly. My character bobbles up and down already..

Yes I realize R* didn't want the weapons to fire that way, but I was hoping there was already a mod that modified them or even if I had to make the mod myself. I didn't find anything it the weapons XML so I came here.

As far as the cover system, it's obvious it wasn't really fully implemented like it should. But most games use the forward, or left / right button to make the character lean over in that direction. Instead of having Niko pop is head out once when you hold the fire button, you would hold W to pop your head above the [car, for example] and then you can choose to fire. sarcasm.gif

It feels like metal gear solid when you get the jump on someone around the corner, I say icon14.gif

what do u mean that your character bobbles up and down?
when? how?

are u trying to make a mod like this to make the cover system like G.O.W?

I think he means if you fire a shot with a gun and let go of the fire button, he goes back into cover which makes him bobble if you like to click the mouse instead of holding it when firing semi-auto.

And I do not want to make a cover system, all I'm asking in this thread if anyone knew how I could mod the guns to fire semi auto meaning you can fire as fast as you can click the mouse button -- but if you hold the mouse button it only fires once per click.

Like when you pull the trigger on a real semi-auto pistol.
