Hi GDSN, I see you are new to the forum so firstly welcome :). Now the last I checked the MX doesnt have hiddenselections. Unless this has changed it means you would have had to edit the models and include them in your pbo. Is this correct?

If yes you need written permission from BIS to release this mod. I didn't see any mention of this on your release post so Im assuming you haven't done this. I recommend you pull this release until you have. BIS are pretty good about it if you ask nicely. Without such permission you are in breach of the EULA :(

Thanks for the information pomigit, I wasn't aware of this. I'll contact BIS as soon as I can ;)

Edit: I've contacted BIS and have now updated the credits as per request.

i have the mod loaded, but the MX rifles are still tan, and i can't see an ammo box anywhere

maybe i'm just blind, but still, could you post the classnames?

Currently there is not an ammo box containing the black MX weapons. They must be obtained via VAS or by adding the weapons manually. A weapon box may be added in the next update (when I get time).

The classnames (as from the Readme) are:

Simply add _black to all standard MX weapon classnames:

MX (Black)		arifle_MX_F_black

MXC (Black)		arifle_MXC_F_black

MX 3GL-H (Black)	arifle_MX_GL_F_black

MX LSW (Black)		arifle_MX_SW_F_black

MXM (Black)		arifle_MXM_F_black

Currently, the addon does not replace the standard MX.

@GDSN: If possible, could you make a replacement pack?

Kudos, a replacement pack would be very nice.

GDSN, the normal MX Black still has a tan vertical hand grip. Is it meant to have that? The MXC has a black one.

The tanned vertical grip wasn't intentional, but it does look quite nice when used with the ARCO scope :p

However, I will be making the grip black in the next update.

Unfortunately no, not yet - I haven't had the time to update the mod since release. I have quite a free day tomorrow so I may work on it then.

I can't make any promises though since AFAIK the MX weapons don't allow hiddenSelections (possibly due to BIS copyrights) which prevents replacement textures.

Is there a way to have this mod installed via a script for a mission so that others without the mod can see and hear the gun, or just a regular MX instead? Because I really wish to use the black version but of course no one else can see the gun unless they have the mod installed.
