Thompson Contender G2 Reloading without Reloading...

I can’t find anything wrong with the code, but when you fire a shot, the animation for reloading plays without the gun actually reloading. You have to manually initiate a reload either by left clicking or hitting your reload key. Any ideas?

   SWEP.ViewModelFlip = false
end
 
-- Always derive from weapon_tttbase.

My weapon :smiley:

As far as I know, it’s a problem with the animations. You might be able to fix it by calling self:Reload() in the weapons SWEP:PrimaryAttack() function.

[lua]
function SWEP:PrimaryAttack()
if ( !self:CanPrimaryAttack() ) then return end
self.Weapon:EmitSound( self.Primary.Sound )
self:ShootBullet( self.Primary.Damage, 1, self.Primary.Cone )
self:TakePrimaryAmmo( 1 )
self.Owner:ViewPunch( Angle( -1, 0, 0 ) )
self:Reload()
end
[/lua]
