in Last movie you saw? Post #287165
I enjoyed shutter island, but it really was kind of a "cheap" brainfuck. A large part of the it was in the fact that they showed us what he thought he was seeing. Its hard to tell what exists or doesn't in that context. :P

Great movie though.

in Best Glitches Post #286006
I dunno if you'd call it a glitch.. but back in the day of nintendo 64, I was playing Perfect Dark trying to unlock some cheat options. Suddenly, immediately as I unlocked one of the cheats, a power surge happened. Right after I turned my console back on, I miraculously had all cheat codes. That added hours of entertainment to that game. :heart:

in Help with rotating sign! Post #283503
Actually.. you may be able to get the door to toggle itself after a certain amount of time. You could tell it to trigger itself with a ~5 second delay as an output. All you would have to do then is trigger it the first time as the map loads, and then it will take care of itself.

in Help with rotating sign! Post #283501
A func_door_rotating and a timer should be all that you need.

The func_door_rotating will turn a number of degrees and stop. You can then toggle it back the other way too (hence two signs).

http://www.twhl.co.za/tutorial.php?id=5

The rotating door bit will be a little different with the I/O setup in source, but the rest should be the same.

If you can mask it, or change it in some way that it makes sense, sure.

I'd prefer its looks not be totally oblivious if possible though; part of the judging is based on how well you cope with the limitations the engines.

I'm not saying that you cant do it, but if it gives off a fake 'hacked in' vibe it probably wont fare as well as it could've.

I didn't like some of the kids steriotypical 'black' stuff, but overall I enjoyed it more.

Chan is less 'corny' than Mr. Miyagi was in the original ones.

I wish they could invent an antagonist who isn't unnaturally soul-less though. "HE TAUGHT US NO MERCY, WRAHGHGHGHGHGH BEAT HIS ASS UNTIL HE PISSES BLOOD LIKE A WOMAN." The originals had that problem too, heh.

in rotating warning light Post #282775
Following http://www.twhl.co.za/tutorial.php?id=3 should teach you how to rotate stuff (if you didn't know), and you'll need the volumetric looking light.

You'll build your alert light in two parts though. One for the rotating solid base, then two more brushes for the alerty lights. Make the rotating entities have the same properties as far as speed goes. You'll set up the lights in the shape you want, and then set the texture effect property to texture and the FX amount to 0. It will be invisible.

Whenever you want the light to turn on.. you will use an env_render to change the light brushes to be visible with an FX amount of ~50 on additive mode. (Env renders change the target entity to reflect the texture effect settings in the entity)

Also, turn on the rotation at that point too. You'll need a multimanager to get it all happening at the same time.

JeffMod: Take http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Fair_use into consideration. Use it if you think it's necessary. If you include one, keep it excessively small and cite the music in your readme. Also, the more obscure the better.

Skals: Probably not Nightwatch; I think we've run into some complainers in the past over that. I'm sure svencoop is fine though, because most every mapper for that uses other people's models/textures in the first place.

There are plenty of model places around (or at least there used to be) if you can find them.
