How to fix the floating gun bug?

Postby Drenaldo » Fri Apr 15, 2016 8:10 pm

Does anyone know how to fix the floating gun bug? If you don't know what it is, basically your gun icon (and other weapon icons) floats in the middle of the screen just to the left of the reticle. It only shows up for me on some maps and mods (Battlefront Zero has it the worst). However, when running the mod on a different computer, the issue is gone. I have the r119 1.3 patch if that helps. I am running the steam version of battlefront. I would normally just assume it was an error with the map but since I do not see it on my laptop, I don't think it has to do with the map. Does anyone know a solution.

Thank you for the reply. Unfortunately, since I am not the author of these maps, I can't re-munge the mod files. Also, Is there a reason why some maps crash on some systems when they work on another one of my computers?

Nope, no idea. But as I said in the other threat, the floating icon fix worked for others, but not for me on belsavis. There have been a few reports like that in the past, so maybe someone will start searching for the problem in the future.
