Arc Thrower in pistol slot available in LWR?

Post by SectoidSquisher » Wed Jan 13, 2021 9:30 pm

Hi all,

I've been trying to mod the defaultgamecore.ini to make the arc thrower available as a sidearm, but I can't find the comment line mentioned here:

Am I looking in the wrong file, or is this not an option with Long War Rebalance?

I changed the values as mentioned here:

https://www.ufopaedia.org/index.php/Mod ... rc_Thrower

which had the effect of the arc thrower appearing in the pistol slot on the loadout screen, it was also seen as a sidearm on the soldier model but upon starting the battle, there's no pistol icon, neither is there a stun option at the bottom of the screen. I have disabled phoning home with PatcherGUI but it's still not working. I preferred having the weapon as a sidearm as otherwise one of your squad is basically a non combatant who has to be nursed through the battle until you can get him or her next to an alien.

Thanks in advance for any help.

The line must exist in LWR. Download NotePad++ which is much more efficient at finding and managing lines of code. I followed the instructions in Faleg's video and everything is working fine.
