Code: Select all

weapon.bzw: warning (line 3): discarding incomplete object
weapon.bzw: warning (line 3): unknown object parameter "position" - skipping
weapon.bzw: warning (line 4): unknown object parameter "color" - skipping
weapon.bzw: warning (line 5): unknown object parameter "initdelay" - skipping
weapon.bzw: warning (line 6): unknown object parameter "delay" - skipping
weapon.bzw: warning (line 7): unknown object parameter "type" - skipping
I have no idea where you got "world weapon" from, because the example on the wiki sure doesn't have it. That should not be there. And it might not matter, but you should probably use a lowercase "weapon".

And you didn't read it correctly as blast pointed out. Best I can tell your weapon should look like this:

Code: Select all

weapon
 name world_weapon
 position 0 0 15
 color 3
 initdelay 1
 delay 10
 type SW
end
I haven't tested it, but as you can see, you forgot the 'name' portion of the 'name' line.
