    Every. Single. Time.

    I finally figured out how to use the commentary editor, but when I attempt to place a node in the in-game editor, it crashes. I can walk around and find a spot to put it, but when I press the left mouse button it crashes.

    I created a commentary file and called it ctf_boats_commentary.txt, prior to this (ctf_boats is the name of my map). Did I do something wrong? Do I need to do something else?

    EDIT: Umm, that should be noDe in the topic title. Seems like I can't edit it...

    You should do it the old fashioned way Fred, here's a file I made to create a commentary node in a test map:

    Code:
    "Entities"
    {
    	"trackinfo"
    	{
    		"track0"
    		{
    			"map"		"phoenix_test"
    			"printname"	"Phoenix Commentary"
    			"description"	"Test commentary in a test map."
    		}	
    	}
    	"entity"
    	{
    		"classname" "commentary_auto"
    		"targetname" ""
    		"origin" "0 0 0"
    		"angles" "0 0 0"
    		"connections"
    		{
    		"OnCommentaryMultiplayerSpawn" "Phoenix Test,StartCommentary,,1.0,1"
    		}
    	}
            "entity"
    	{
    		"classname" "point_clientcommand"
    		"targetname" "comm_cmd"
    		"origin" "0 0 0"
    		"angles" "0 0 0"
    	}
            "entity"
    	{
    		"classname" "point_commentary_node"
    		"targetname" "Phoenix Test"
    		"origin" "-256 256 64"
    		"angles" "0 200 0"
    		"precommands" ""
    		"postcommands" ""
    		"commentaryfile" "#commentaryphoenix001.wav"
    		"printname" "I am a liability"
    		"viewtarget" ""
    		"viewposition" ""
    		"prevent_movement" 0
    		"speakers" "West the Medic"
    		"synopsis" ""
    		"teleport_origin" "-1544.354858 -5629.431152 -351"
    	}
    }

    It's not that hard, you just have to replace bits and bobs.

    All a commentary file does is add entities to the game, so you can add anything, even logic relays and stuff.
