Hello, I am trying to make a first person shooter demo. The problem is that how I can give the weapon a nice motion effect as the player moves like in Quake or HL? Thanks.

have an increment that goes between 0 and 2PI. Add the sine of this to the camera''s height value.

//for each step
stepInc += .15;
if (stepInc >= TWOPI)
stepInc -= TWOPI;
cameraY += sin(stepInc)*offset;

just remember to reset the cameraY to the normal offset, like the head position.

Hope that helped!

Well, some people like to have the Idle Animation inside the model file. So, say frames 0 - 20 are for being Idle. This is the way Quake 2 does it. Now just animate the model.
