    Hello,

    I have more problems with the disco that I have on my map.

    I solved the crash problem that I had by removing some timers that I was using to make the lights of the disco blink. Now only some lights blink.

    But now it doesn't work when the disco moves... The disco is inside a boat and when the boat moves( it's constantly moving) the lights that blink turn off. The lights that doesn't blink continue on.

    I tried removing the timers and make the lights blink by changing it's settings but it didn't work.

    The lights are all point_spotlight and have the boat as parent. All I did when I created the boat was selecting it as a parent.

    I think you need dynamic lights when they move.

    Can I create the same light type with dynamic light that I create with the point_spotlight? Point_spotlight looks like those lights you have in concerts, thats what I want to create.

    point_spotlight already creates a dynamic light. They just add some sprites on top.

    I don't know why but now the point_spotlight works fine...

    Hammer makes me crazy! Sometimes I wate hours trying to solve problems that are simple and sometimes things like this happen. You have no idea how many times I created the lights and the timers again and now it finally worked!

    By bthe way... the dynamic light didn't work.


    I am afraid of how many problems I will have with the map and all there is left is to set how the boat moves, create some health stations and a few boxes.
