    I am having trouble getting item sprites to work with new weapon i have created. the item works but there is no pic in-game. can any one help me? I have extracted all the .bos files needed, and the sprites are from the sprite packs on http://jj86tutorials.stgfc.com/ so is there something i'm doing wrong?

    I don't know, you haven't said what you've done to link the image to the entity yet. :roll:

    Create a folder in core/sprites for the custom sprites and in the entity editor open up the item and under 'image' click the button with three dots (next to the field that says sprite). Then in the window that pops up find where you placed the custom sprites and then double click on the one you want to use.

    ammo problems now

    sorry but i now have another problem this time concerning ammo creation. how do you edit the ammo type because whenever i click on it it brings up the list of ammos to choose from and i know that these are hard coded so it wont show up there. should i be able to type the ammo type in as well as select it from the menu?

    It's all hardcoded just pick from the list, you can't type it in.

    If you want to make an entirely new ammo type such as .22 or .38 you'll have to use a fan made program and edit the ammo and weapon entities after creation. See here.

    And in future don't double post.
