Changing Dispersion values of all firearms in the game?

Post by Huey Hog » 2012-02-26, 04:04:50 AM

Hi all, I'm aware that this forum appears to be dead and I'm playing a mod that is no longer supported but I'd like to know. Is there any way to change the dispersion values of the guns in the mod? The firefights are really long and a drain on ammunition. I feel that the dispersion is too high and doesn't allow me to hit my targets at all. I'd like to return to the vanilla OFP dispersion values.

I'm aware that the VTE mod uses JAM HD magazines, can I change it to standard dispersion JAM magazines. Please let me know where to find the entries and how to change please!

You can use JAM non HD magazines for most of the weapons, please check the PMC Addons/Mods Manuals: OFP VTE Class Names for details.

For those native VTE weapons which do not have JAM_ magazines, there is no way to change the dispersion other than to tweak the original config.cpp values. But I would say that switching from JAM HD to JAM non HD mags is good start already.

You do that on the units Init line in mission editor. There is plenty of quick tutorials on how to use mission editor which explains this.
