How to disable seeing the weapon in the enemy's hand, when watching mvd? I just noticed this, although i didnt change any demo watching settings. Why is this the default setting btw?

You can disable it with r_drawvweps 0 - But why shouldn't it be the default? vweps are cool for demo watching/spectating

Never seen a request to turn off vweps.

I'd like to be able to see mod vweps but apparently it cant be easily done.

Actually, it just doesn't feel right, when watching a demo, and seeing a big ass RL in the q-guy's hand. I mean you cannot enable vweps during gameplay right? So why enable it in demo watching? And again, it just doesn't feel right, it ruins the standard quakeguy 'feeling' or whatnot.

What he mean is probably that it's possible but doesn't mention that it requires a server side setting to be enabled. That server side setting defaults to OFF due to the impact on gameplay. It's just like how enabling/disabling teaminfo HUD works.

I've never watched (or had the need) to see vweps, so this reflection might be totally pointless, but...
...does it not look weird with ppl using weaponscripts?

Small SG -> big-ass RL -> Small SG.
Or is it always drawing "best weapon"?

ezQuake got a feature that allows you to show last fired weapon or best weapon iirc
