    I'm trying to get addoutput to work properly to assign a name to an !activator

    My Output Named : OnStartTouch
    Target Entities Named : !Activator
    Via This Input : AddOutPut
    With a Parameter Override of : ??????

    My guess would be
    Name NewnameHere

    and if I do this, and have a filter_activator_name will give an error with this in the map errors?

    Thanks

    For filter_activator_name, you can just give it a name normally, via the keyvalues page. The filtername option is also in the keyvalue part of the entity. Unless you want to change the name of items mid-game, then no outputs are required.

    ok, what i'm trying to do is this...

    I have an area that if passed they get a new name, that way a teleporter will work for that person only... if they return the way they came they get a new name that disallows the teleporter...

    how do i do that?

    Ahhh. I'm afraid there is no way to specifically target players right now. Or even classes :( Right now you have to target the whole team, or nothing at all. Sorry m8.
