...Thanks Ts2do, very good job of formatting it. --wisemx 17:05, 16 Aug 2005 (PDT)

I saw that the flags were forgotten, and I thought that the names from the Hammer properties box would be better than nothing. I don't know the bit values for these flags, or if they are called something else with SmartEdit off, but at least they're there if anybody would want to comment them later on. --Andreasen 18:20, 31 Jan 2006 (PST)

  • Re the "Ring" spawnflag: looking at the SDK source code (/dlls/EnvBeam.cpp), it looks like this will only work if both the start and end entities (LightningStart and LightningEnd) are both moving entities, e.g. parented to something. It won't work if either entity is, say, a non-parented info_target.

Perhaps someone could test it out. Quite why they've made it this way I have no idea. --Rof 08:28, 1 Feb 2006 (PST)
