This old topic was all messed up, here is re-upload with screenshots. Installation: unpack to {Q3}/baseq3/ dir and change rail color to get different color effects.

You don't use crosshair AG? I just watch the crosshairs and wave doesn't bother me.


i think it's a habitual thing of what i've trained my eyes to see.

anyone else should try it though cause it does look pretty cool.

Here's a railrainbow script that will manually change your rail spiral and railcore color with the press of a button.You can play around with the colors.Just bind whatever key you like and hit that key to change colors

set rail0 "color1 "0"; set rrail vstr rail1"
set rail1 "color1 "4"; set rrail vstr rail2"
set rail2 "color2 "7"; set rrail vstr rail3"
set rail3 "color1 "6"; set rrail vstr rail4"
set rail4 "color2 "1"; set rrail vstr rail5"
set rail5 "color1 "3"; set rrail vstr rail6"
set rail6 "color2 "4"; set rrail vstr rail0"
vstr rail0
set rrail vstr rail0
bind x "weapon 7; vstr rrail"

Is there an actual multi colored rainbow rail or is it just one that changes after each fire?, I would like to see the rainbow one like out of CorkScrew mod.

Again check the thread date, 2008. You are asking people who are not even here anymore. :-D

Besides, you can see they used script to change colors, so why asking if it changes colors, of course it does what else it could do.

Code: Select all
//rainbow rail color


set rail0 "color1 0; set rrail vstr rail1"
set rail1 "color1 1; set rrail vstr rail2"
set rail2 "color1 2; set rrail vstr rail3"
set rail3 "color1 3; set rrail vstr rail4"
set rail4 "color1 4; set rrail vstr rail5"
set rail5 "color1 5; set rrail vstr rail6"
set rail6 "color1 6; set rrail vstr rail0"
set rrail vstr rail0

unbind MOUSE1

bind MOUSE1 "+attack; vstr rrail"


save this file name like
Code: Select all
rrc.cfg


when You start game You can
Code: Select all
/exec rrc.cfg


or add this to autoexec.




One press fire button = change color.

If You keep pressed fire button = color is the same.
If You press again = color is change.

This thread was about Colorful Rail mod for Q3. Scripts to change rail color can be used with mod, but mod doesn't require them.

I updated first post with uploaded file and screenshots. :)

My question is, how to create, or at least use the rail effects in the Quake 3 mod "Corkscrew". I once emailed Firestarter about 5 years ago, and he said he can't remember what he did to create it, but he said feel free to go through the source code and use it. However, me not knowing anything about that sort of stuff, has made it quite difficult. I managed to create myself a script that I see other people have also done, that changes the color after each fire, I also went as far as asking ebo1a (maker of Event Horizon 3), if I could have the custom rail for that, of which he sent me.

Here is a screenshot of the Corkscrew mod, and it's awesome rail:

Maybe it is just pk3, if it requires custom code then it will need cgame.qvm or even server mod. No idea, i didn't look, but feel free to upload.

Our rail mod uses pk3 and changes just 2 gfx files:
Code: Select all
vg-colorful_rail.pk3\gfx\misc\railcorethin_mono.jpg
vg-colorful_rail.pk3\gfx\misc\raildisc_mono2.jpg

You can unzip any pk3 and look inside. Maybe that mod uses something similar and you could then copy those files into your own zip, and rename it to pk3.
