Thank you all for the input! I'm going to play around with some of these ideas when I get a chance - I'll let you know if any of them work out!

Hello!

I'm fairly new when it comes to making maps and using hammer on the original HL/TFC. I've only been playing around with it for a year now. I'm trying to create a gauge, or a loading bar that fills relative to the buttons that activate it. So one button would make it fill a little bit, while the other would make it fill a lot.

Its a bit of a tweak from an idea I saw here. The biggest differences are that:
  • I'm using the version of Hammer that doesn't have outputs and inputs in its properties
  • I don't want the bar to load on a timer. I want it to increase either a little bit or a lot when a button is pushed.
I've never made anything like this before, but I think its a cool idea. I just have no idea how I should go about making it actually work. Maybe a multi-manager?

If anyone has any ideas, I'd love to try them out! I'm not asking anyone to do the work for me... unless you want to ;)
