Update to jvarnes real weapon names Mod.

Permissions and credits
Thank you jvarnes for giving me permission to continue development of your mod.

"This is a small mod to change the fictional names of various weapons in the game to ones found in the real world.
The guns in the game are actually hybrids using a variety of parts and pieces from several different weapons. When changing the names I relied heavily on the suggestions found here:" - original description from jvarnes

1.exctract and Copy the 00.dat into steamapps\common\MGS_TPP\master\0
2. yes to overwrite

For snakebite[SBWM]:
1. Download SnakeBite's Mod Manager, set it up.
2. Open the Modmanager, click on Mods, click "Install Mod..." and browse to and select the *msgv file
When it asks you to install the files even though they're outdated (they aren't), say yes.
3. Start the Game.
