    But you NEED a respawnroomvisualizer to block the other team. I think. You should have one anyway. I think what makes it block everyone, is that you haven't set an associated respawn room. That should solve it.

    I've had so many problems with these kind of things myself, I probably wasted a week trying to get my first spawn room to work. (while following a guide :p)

    That's right, the respawnroomvisualizer needs to be associated to a respawn room.

    Also make a filter for a team, and set the door trigger of the spawn room to that filter. That will stop the door opening up for the bad guys.

    Nobody wants the bad guys in their spawn, cause they're all so bad and all, and very rude.

    also add a brush as func_door that opens and closed with the model. The model isn't solid so eveything will get through. just set it so the func_door isnt rendered. Take a look at the valve example map in your mapsrc directory. It shows a CP setup with advancing spawns and everything. only entity work though.

    my idea is how the official maps do it, they also have visualisers. I dont really know what exactly causes blocking the enemy team

    There is also a flag for some of these things called, I think, 'Touch to open'. You should uncheck that, or else anyone can go through by running into the door.

    Valve uses a toolstrigger trigger around the door, I believe. "OnStartTouchAll" is used to open it and "OnEndTouchAll" is used to close it.

    I don't know the difference between those outputs and the ones that don't end with "All", but I'm guessing that "OnEndTouch" would close the door when someone stops touching the trigger, which is no good in TF2 - if you have 4 players in the spawn room, all of them touching the trigger, that would mean that when one player leaves the trigger, the door would close, even though there are still other players in the vicinity of the door.

    Kind of like how the resupply cabinet stays open with two players next to it, even if one of them walks away from the trigger.

    Whoops. Looks like I'm the thread necromancer. Mistook it for a new post, and was all excited about thinking I had something worthwhile to add.:blushing:
