Default Automatic Shotgun- Mini gun style

Heya! I was playing Insamnity! earlier today with Target, DK and Oscar and an Idea popped up inside my head, what if I could turn the Auto Shotgun into a mini gun which shoots shot gun bullets as fast as the mini gun, but with the barrels of rotating like the minigun! Of course I need to learn how to use Serious Editor 2 first but I thought I'd show people my intentions and also see if it is at all possible to do.

So to sum up my idea...
The shotgun will be like a mini gun that shoots shotgun bullets 1 at a time at a rapid base with the barrels moving at the speed of the mini gun, maybe even making the sound of the spinning mini gun barrels.

Edit 1: Also, what will I need to be able to do this? As in what files are required?

I think checking out the .ep files for the Auto Shotgun may be a good start. You can find them in Content/SeriousSam2/Databases/EntityParams.

You could always ask DwK if he could make a much faster firing speed option for the next update
The auto shotgun rotates it's barrel anyway so if you could get the rate of fire higher than the maximum at the moment

I would ask him, but doesn't he have a bit too much on his plate at the moment? I mean there is alot of stuff for him to fix right now, as I have heard.......

Open up the editor and then on the left side (browser) you should be able to explore to content/entity params and there you find .ep files for all weapons, they contain some of the weapons configuration.

You should be able to change 'Min Fire Ratio' to change firing-speed
Probably you would use something like 0.05 to have "minigun-speed" for real minigun-speed as in Serious Sam 1 you use 0.04.

I think its not that easy to add a rotating barrels sound, but if you fire that fast, the "barrels-reload-once" sound should also play in very fast frequency and would automatically result in a "looping" mechanics sound. If you change the reload sound to a good one, it should give that effect
