phys_hinge + helper

helper must be used to make hinge work or you will get an error (ERROR: phys_hinge bad data). The helper is a little circle that can be found at the centre of the hinge. drag it from the centre so it is offset. remember the entities attached to the hinge will rotate around the line between the helper and the centre of the hinge.
