    Hello community,
    I´m currently changing my map into a halloween version and added quite a lot of "creepy" stuff already, but I also thought: why not add the ghost?
    The problem is that I don´t know how to do that. I´ve read that it´s an entity but it´s not in the entity list and I also didn´t found any documentation on it. So how do I add him then?

    Regards
    NicoandLuis

    It's a brush-entity you have to parent around the ghost.
    I think it was called trigger_stun or jsut something with "stun" in the name

    yea it was trigger_stun, and you're right, it isn't in the original fgd. you just have to make it. I believe there's a tutorial already here on the forums somewhere.

    The thing to understand here is, that the ghost isn't an intelligent NPC or anything.

    It's basically a prop with a stunning brush around it that follows a track laid down in advance.

    You should decompile event_harvest, there is some nice I/O done for the ghost.

    I never added this fgd. :eek:
    I had this entity as soon it was implantated. I thought he didn't find it because he was looking for a Point-entity.

    ok. originally you had to create the trigger_stun entity, but I guess they updated it.

    Alright, I got him now, thanks for the help!
    But I also got another question. I read that the HHH can spawn randomly when a specific entity exists. How is it called?
