Error with ambient_generic

I have one of these logic cases with 8 unique ambient_generic entities attached to it and a button that randomly selects a case. On all of the case events, they stop all the ambient_generics and after a delay of 1 second plays its own sound. When compiled, the logic_case ignores the option to stop the sounds but still delays by 1 second the option to play the sound. The other logic_cases in my map work properly. It is only this one with I am having trouble. --MongoTheMad 23:11, 31 July 2009 (UTC)

If I understand you correctly, you're trying to stop an ambient_generic from playing a sound. This won't work because of bugs with the ambient_generics which can only be fixed by a programmer. --TomEdwards 08:13, 1 August 2009 (UTC)
It still doesn't make sense. It works just fine in my other map, but when a logic_case is involved, it doesn't work.--MongoTheMad 17:51, 1 August 2009 (UTC)

Test Value

What is that? How do I use it, and what for? This is not the only entity that 'tests' things, could I get an explanation on all of these? --Mr.p.kiwi 04:27, 30 July 2011 (PDT)

It means that the input value (or random value) is compared against all available cases. Also, please sign your comments. Solokiller 04:15, 30 July 2011 (PDT)
First of all, sorry for not signing, slipped my mind. Secondly, how does it compare things, and for what use? --Mr.p.kiwi 04:27, 30 July 2011 (PDT)
It compares a value against up to 16 values, and depending on which it is equal to a corresponding output is fired. For example, if the case keyvalues have the numbers 1 through 16, and the input value is 7, then case 07 is equal and fires the output OnCase07. if it isn't a value between 1-16 then the output OnDefault is fired.

Moving props with logic_case

I'm was thinking about how to add a moving car with dynamic light to my map. It mainly should look like the moving cars, appearing at random times on de_nuke (CS:S).

It's dark allover, so the car needs its lights turned on ;D. After decompiling de_nuke, i found out that they used a logic_case together with an logic_timer to make the cars appereance totally random!

Now i wonder how to create such a moving prop without a func_tracktrain or so.

17+ Values with logic_case

Would it be problematic to use more than 16 values with the logic_case if you disable SmartEdit? I mean, I am sure it is not supported, but would it begin to actually cause problems?

Since the code wouldn't expect any additional keyvalues, they would be ignored altogether. It would amount to no more than a few extra bytes to store the key-value pairs. Unless the key names happen to be used somewhere else in the entity (which they most likely aren't), they shouldn't affect the game in any way. Solokiller 12:33, 11 November 2013 (PST)
