Hi, I've tried the first lines of this tutorial about trigger_camera. In JACK the info_player looks like Gordon with his special outfit but when I run the map, in the camera sight the player has the Gman outfit ? I'm afraid Half-Life grants identity theft !! Is it normale like a joke of the devellopers ?

4 years later I still think it would be a good idea but I dare not bothering the smithing god with that. Indeed that would be too short a tutorial since this entity is basically straightorward : a brush with the scroll texture , tied to a func_conveyor . The yaw defines the steering. As for the angle of the texture, it is set with the Advanced texture tool.
Then a func_button which target is the name of the conveyor switches the steering for both the conveyor and its texture.

Anyhow the YouTube Hammer Quickies 6 is great, for a mortal that is.

J.A.C.K.S seems to be mostly identical to Hammer although eaqier to use. I made my choice quickly. I'll have to donate.
Well, I would cast away money every day if I gave a fee everytime I use those shareware with donation.

It would be helpful to copy/paste some vectorized shape in JACK. Is there a way to do this with , say, Inkscape or Blender ?
Thank you!

Sorry I still don't know how to insert a picture in the forum.

Can you tell me which line to alter please ?

By the way I tried J.A.C.K and it R.O.C.Ks.

Windawz, should I disable any Windows §ecurity ??
Why the .map files are copied to the maps folder but not bsp's?

Copy to clipboard ?
I know how to do it!
Will do tomorrow when I'´ll be in front of my laptop.
Thanks in advance.

Nice try Jiminy but you heard the doctor : that's not possible.
Commented 5 years ago2015-04-02 07:17:08 UTC in journal: #8528 Comment #67645
Jiminy Criket gave me the following idea.
At the 1st PC the rotating door should be a brush so I can group it with elev. The Group go down as 1 brush.
The 2nd PC would trigger a func like multi_manager or whatnot which automatically Tie to entity the door brush to the func_rotating_door with the right parameters (Name, Use only) and fire the door (Target).
I have never used a multi_manager yet so I ask before making any hardwork.
Does it sound possible ?

Once again you're hustling me in my boundaries.

Moreover this trigger_changelevel method allows the following entity persistence !

If I was HephaIstos I would write a tutorial on this topic like a wriiting translation of this one https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=68HAHbxSgCI but for hl 1 :(

In HL1 the tongue takes a while to get down.
It seems that barnacles from HL1 have less appetite than the one in HL2.It won't eat gargantua nor any alien.That's fair enough as enemy won't eat each other. However they eat scientists, g.i.s and even Assassins but not gmans !
Is it a joke about bureaucracy from the game makers ?

Dont talk to me about the HL2 editing credentials ... I know nothing on this subject.
It's a great game, such a big world. The edition must be very confusing.
Commented 5 years ago2015-02-17 19:43:45 UTC in journal: #8507 Comment #67631
There's another utility.
The entities that are used to be tied to brushes don't apper in the dropdown and so it can be convenient to copy it with one click.
As you can see lazyness keeps killing me.
Commented 5 years ago2015-02-17 11:25:55 UTC in journal: #8507 Comment #67630
monster_bullchicken is the string for the bullsquid.A single click and Javascript put the whole string in the clipboard so that you just have to paste it in
properties field which require it. It's very pointless because so far I only found one enities which could have use of it :O) it's the monstermaker, Type of monster field.

What's worse it's only locally effective while it's html. An issue with the encoding impedes the web to run it as well.
My lazyness kills me softly.
Thanks Tetsu0

If physic engine smashes one's dream nothing stop the Dreamweaver. That lead to a vicious circle and eventually to the grave but with an ethereal computer and Half Life and the After Life mod that's a tolerable fate.
I'll keep on knocking the world wit my Hammer.
