    Hey I was wondering about the point_tesla entity. I put in all the code in correctly, and when I execute the "dospark" input I hear no sound.
    Here is what I did:
    ent_create point_tesla
    ent_fire point_tesla addoutput "targetname tesla"
    ent_fire tesla addoutput "classname tesla"

    ent_fire tesla addoutput "m_soundname music\HL1_song25_REMIX3.mp3"
    ent_fire tesla addoutput "m_color 0 0 0"
    ent_fire tesla addoutput "m_flradius 0"
    ent_fire tesla addoutput "beamcount_min 0
    ent_fire tesla addoutput "beamcount_max 0
    ent_fire tesla addoutput "thick_min 0
    ent_fire tesla addoutput "thick_max 0
    ent_fire tesla addoutput "lifetime_min 1
    ent_fire tesla addoutput "lifetime_max 1
    ent_fire tesla dospark

    and there is no sound.
    Is there a certain spawnflag, variable, or other console command that disables and enables the sound?
    and if not, what other ways can I play music/sounds with basic entities?

    You could try using ambient_generic and have the point_tesla fire an output that plays music from it (I'm assuming it's music, judging by the "music\HL1_song25_REMIX3.mp3"). Just set the latter so sounds can be heard everywhere (it's a flag).


    Nice name, by the way.
