how can i change the item template without changing the base item? do you mean item template ID, cuz that didn't work. When I do it with a sword, I use homemade sword as the base item and paste in the item id you posted into the template id field and it doesn't work. I have no visible weapon, yet I still use the 1-h sword attack animation. the shield has the same problem. i can only get the weapon to work if i make the base item something like _DA_zombie_A, but then i can't unequip the weapon without crashing the game. I have the same problem with the shield, where the item appears to be invisible, but i have the animations as if i had a shield equipped. arhg! if there were only a base item shield that was invisible this would be no problem.
