Is there any way that one can customize the weapons in Soldat?

do you mean the look? if so then you just change the gfx (or what ever) in hte folder

Umm if you manage to boost up weapons or make a new one you will be banned from this forums

To clarify: modifing the .bmps of the weapons used in soldat is allowed (it's called 'mod'ing) but you can't change the names of the weapons without reverse engineering the soldat .exe which is not allowed by the terms of soldat.

You can change the names of the weapons really easily!!! just edit the text file and it appears ingame! tell me if this is illegal and I will stop, but I have weapons that are called the berreta, 12 gauge and others. it all works on game too, so when one person kills another, the report in the top left says this accurately. but you dont have to mess with the exe at all, it was really easy.

F842: DNA.styx posted this when the new version wasn't released and back then you were NOT able to edit the weapon names.

How about changing the animations? You're not changing the .exe, just the animation files...

Well if you figure that out, be sure to tell the rest of us how to do that.

I assume no-one's done this and writing the editor won't be a waste of time? If so, then about 50% is done. It lets you preview animations as a stick figure, play them, and so on. It also has the english names of most of the animations, so no more wondering what 'kucaidzie' is (crouch walk). If some-one wants it, I can do up a version that's allow you to change animations...
