Chainsword is a blunt weapon!
« on: September 07, 2016, 14:00 »

I assembled a chainsword and proceeded to promptly ripping and tearing some demon guts. Instead of a satisfying buzz-roar expected under such circumstances, my strikes sounded like hitting a wet sponge with a forehead covered in guacamole. Which means they made a default melee sound.

Is that meant to be? I realize it has no impact on the gameplay whatsoever and it's just a puny matter of aesthetics, but come on. :(

Did you remember to alt.reload to turn it on?

Yeah. And fusion batteries were nowhere to be found either.

(You've actually made me go and check if that was the case. You scoundrel, you.)

To give a serious answer though, Chainsword being an assembly probably inherits Ccombat Knife's sounds. This means you *can* change the sound used to something more fitting (if you can find a fitting sound file that is), but then you'd have the Combat Knife sounding like a Chainsword.

I think I get it. Fixing the issue would require the Chainsword to have a different item category. But then, it would no longer count as a knife for the purpose of knife challenges/unlockables/traits/whatnot. Looks tricky.

Not as much item category as create a new item with new ID. Coding in for knife challenges etc. to allow Chainsword would probably be trivial in itself, but the game would need to actually remove the knife you have from inventory and give you a (new item) Chainsword in it's place. As opposed to renaming your knife to Chainsword and changing it's stats which is, as far as I understand, what happens now.

Either way too much work just for one assembly.

Oh well. Looks like I'm going to have to put up with my knives sounding like chainsaws from now on.

Don't worry - I make the noise myself all the time when I'm slicing bread. Very cathartic.
