    A map of mine is using the a/d ctf gamemode, so to help out players, I want to use a popup like this that explains the gamemode:

    ^ I've been able to get it working using the gravelpit gamemode, but I've had no luck getting the message to fire in a/d ctf. The message never appears. At the moment, my gamemode entities are set up like in the picture below. (I got this setup from Jonah's a/d ctf prefab.)

    The outputs shown in window are fired from the logic_auto to the tf_gamerules. These two entities weren't a part of the original setup and only really exist to make the message appear. The two are actually copied directly from boojum's gravelpit prefab, although the messages are different.

    Right now my guess is that the "OnMultiNewRound" output doesn't work with the gamemode entities I have right now, meaning that it never actually fires. But I could just be doing this totally wrong! Is there a better way to do this?

    Hi ABP,

    The way you're doing it now is, as far as I know, the only way to do such a thing (unless there exists a console command you could fire).

    I downloaded Jonah's prefab and placed it into a basic room with ABS's ABC type tf_gamerules and associated logic_auto, like you have, and it worked for me:

    So perhaps it's something else in your level interfering with the set up?

    Edit: You linked this in chat! I thought it was recent. :(

    Sorry Egan, that's my fault. But your post was actually really helpful to me, so thanks for taking the time to do it. Definitely appreciated!

    BRICK HYPERSPACE!

    EDIT: OK why does the exact same image that worked for Egan put up an error message when I try to post it?
