    Does anybody have an idea if WCP is WIN2K compatible?

    Actually, with a change to only several lines of code, WCP runs under Win2k just fine. The reason the shipped executable doesn't work is there are a couple of issues that need to be fixed regarding WCP's memory management and memory initialization that seem to work fine under Win95/98. Without...

    hardpoint direction

    It's not worth it. That "number" is also used to know how many bullet types to allocate (memory-wise). One would have to know how often in the code that "number" was used, and where to change it. What you need is a new executable with the feature added, but that can't happen.

    hardpoint direction

    A hardpoint is a named 3x4 matrix of 12 32-bit floats, in the order X.x, X.y, X.z, Y.x, Y.y, Y.z, Z.x, Z.y, Z.z, pos.x, pos.y, pos.z. The left-handed coordinate system is used, with positive x to the right, positive y up, and 'looking' along positive z. A transform at the origin would be: 1,0,0...
