  1. Nope. Add a path_wait after the path_sleep.
  2. Fair enough. For whatever unknown reason, whoever created it decided not to have it show up in the Targets folder. Here's a picture of one I used in Somewhere Above the City, showing spawnargs. This one, when triggered every frame or so, resets the "target" spawnarg in VaultCamera4 so that it points to the entity target_null_7, which is moving around. This lets the camera resync its view in real time.
  3. And you don't want to use the existing "target_setkeyval"? Keep in mind that some spawnargs are read and initialized only at spawn time, and changing them later will have no effect.
  4. Yes. The timeline should help, especially since Witchers and Mages don’t age, which adds to the confusion, since the season covers a span of 65 years w/o telling you.
  5. Jack: Give me a simple test map with the AI, the path corners, the switches, the doors and their visportal, all monsterclip in the area, and I'll try to see what's going on. When a mission is loaded, if a door has a switch targeting it, the door makes a list with all switches in it. When the AI approaches the door, and he's told by pathfinding that it's closed, the presence of a switch list should send him to the closest switch to open the door. Once he's through the open door, he'll go to the other switch and close the door behind him.
  6. Working on several missions that will rely on 2.08. Yay! Getting treatment for my cancer that has decided to attack after 11 years of remission. Boo! Enjoying my 2-month-old grandson. Yay!
  7. Ok, when I include the dmapped files of the "moonlight" version, it now fails. (???????) Anyway, do the following: 1. Download "Braeden Church" using the in-game downloader, then install it. 2. Go to fms/braeden_church and unzip this file there. You should now have fms/braeden_church/maps/*. 3. Start the mission. The failure is that the only part of the map that gets painted with moonlight is the "section" (visportal-bound) containing the moonlight light entity. (The light is named "Moonlight" if you open the map in DR.) ======================================================= Stretch task: You can try the "it works when you don't include the dmapped files" issue (??????) by deleting everything in fms/braeden_church/maps except the *.map file. You can try this and see if the light suddenly starts working.
  8. Well, that didn't go well. I added a bright parallel moonlight light to Braeden Church, and my initial test runs showed that it fails with 2.08 (before your changes), only lighting up the visportaled section where the light lives. So I wrote up instructions to include the new map for testing, but when I ran through the instructions to make sure I had it right, the moonlight decided to start working. The changed map works correctly in 2.06, 2.07, and 2.08. Go figure. So I'll have to rethink this. The only thing I can think of is that my failed tests included a new dmapping of the moonlight version, and my instructions only included adding the map file but not the proc, cm, or aas files. I can think of no reason why this would matter, but I'm going to have to revisit this. Back later.
  9. I remember trying moonlight in the mission "Braeden Church", and it looked terrible. I'll add a moonlight light and make a pk4 available this afternoon. The architecture is pretty complex, with lots of outside visportals, so it should be an ok testbed.
  10. Glad you enjoyed it. Thanks for playing. William Steele missions 2 through 5 are released. I'm working to complete 6, 7, and 8.
  11. I enjoyed it. There are critical reviews of Cavill’s acting, but in my mind he does a good job with Geralt’s moodiness and minimal verbiage. You aren’t told what he had to go through to become a Witcher, which would help. Perhaps they’ll cover that in a future season.
  12. Even though I've read the Witcher books, I was a bit confused by the timeline when watching the series on Netflix, because they don't tell you where you are in time as the episodes unfold. To help with this, someone has created a timeline. If you've already watched the show but plan to rewatch it, this might help. If you haven't seen the show, be warned that the timeline image contains spoilers. Enjoy!
