    Is there anyway to parent a trail or a entity to a player? Something like when players teleport, they will have that certain trail? Using the intel works, but how do you make it so people will have this trail on teleport?

    That would require outputs from the teleporters, which I don't think is possible (assuming you're talking about player-built ones).

    It is possible, Krusty ( a surfmapper), I looked into his/her map and found that the teleports have outputs, with a logic_template. I tried copying it, but that didn't work. So it is possible, but anyone know how?

    That would require you to get the reference name of the players i guess... Then a system were the particles could automatically parent themselves to that player

    :O:O

    Maybe it would be easier to find a way to make the players emit sparkles in general...
