    Hi guys.. first editing related question I ask:

    I have this problem, in my DM map, LAGORDA, I have this laser-blocked door, that when you approach it a "Access Denied" sound is heard, and a message appears that says "Acces Denied ; Tournament Game in Progress" .. the problem is, the message only appears to the player who bumps to the wall.. and I want it to appear to every player.. how do you do that?

    Please help. Thanks.

    I think you have to use a "SpecialEvent" in the triggers menu. You can use a special sound, and broadcast a message to everyone (if bBroadcast = true). Give this a try.

    uh huh

    What you need is a trigger that has the event of a SpecialEvent's (a "special" type of trigger) tag.
    Last in the properties is "Special Event"
    Here you can add sounds, damage and messages.
    For everyone to see the message, set bBroadcast to True.
    If you're gonna do noises and stuff, SpecialEvent Triggers are the way to go.

    Play test maps in the "PlatTest" Forum

    Before releasing a map goto the "PlayTesting" Forum for feedback.
    After you release a map, then by all means, Showcase it.

    yeah really why would you want it to broadcast to EVERY player...i imagine being on a totally different part of the map and getting "access denied" and being like wtf...mass confusion.

    I think you are right Laff.. better make the message only transmit to the player who bumps against the door.. thanks for the suggestions. :)
