The "ThrowGrenadeAtTarget" input doesn't seem to work. Is there something I'm doing wrong? --Darthkillyou 19:52, 23 Sep 2007 (PDT)

How are you calling it?—ts2do 13:56, 25 Sep 2007 (PDT)
I use a logic_relay (a logic_auto in my test maps) and I use an "OnTrigger" output to fire a "ThrowGrenadeAtTarget" input with a parameter of "throw_grenade_here_1" (which is the name of an info_target). I tried info_targets, npc_bullseyes and even citizens... it just doesn't seem to want to work. --Darthkillyou 16:25, 25 Sep 2007 (PDT)
To help others who may have an issue with this: The grenade target must be within the viewcone of the npc_combine_s when the throwgrenadeattarget input is fired. The npc will not move towards or look for the target, it must be there at that time. If he finds the target after the input has been called, he may then throw the grenade, but only if the target is in plain sight from his perspective. This input is unusual (if not unique), in that it enables an npc to execute an attack on a non-npc.--Fitzroy doll 19:56, 14 February 2009 (UTC)

Elite and Prison Models & Simple spawning

I am having trouble finding the models for the Combine Elite and Prison Guard models. I don't really know how to make the models in the Combine Soldier cheat. Anyone know how? -- User:Mega Sean 45

Could somebody please just say in a way that thick, new people who have never done this before, like me, how do you spawn a Nova Prospekt Prison Guard and an Overwatch Elite? I do not understand all of the techno crap. --Donovan-j-charlie 12:54, 18 Dec 2008 (PST)

Since you both are asking the same question, I combined them to answer both of you at the same time. If you look here you notice that near the end of that section there is a 'model' key-value. So, if you want to create a Nova Prospekt or Elite combine, then change the model keyvalue to the value shown. Ediblespread 17:30, 29 March 2009 (UTC)
I'm sorry. But, I tried the commands. Nothing happened. =( Is there some sort of order, I have to put them in, or something? --Mega Sean 45 02:59, 2 June 2009 (UTC)
You should be selecting from a drop-down list... --TomEdwards 12:34, 2 June 2009 (UTC)
What? --Mega Sean 45 20:50, 2 June 2009 (UTC)
In Hammer, place a npc_combine_s, select it, press Alt+Enter, then select from the drop-down... But if you're spawning them in-game with the npc_create console command, you can't specify a type. --Campaignjunkie (talk)
