    I cant get it to work. The whole prop just goes up and into the brush above. I think in order for it to stay I have to make a large sliding door move up. Get the sliding door frame prop and the motor prop then have to somehow get the motor to move with the door. I just don't know how to get the motor to move and how to get it to move together.

    if the whole prop is moving up then re-check the outputs of the func_door

    My output named: OnOpen
    Target entities named: door_red_respawn1_prop
    Via this input: SetAnimation
    With a parameter override of: open

    My output named: OnClose
    Target entities named: door_red_respawn1_prop
    Via this input: SetAnimation
    With a parameter override of: close

    It works for sure with that prop_dynamic i mentioned above since i followed the tutorial a few days ago since i used the wiki one last time and that dosent even use the animted doors :)

    edit - i've just ripped a copy of one of my doors out of my map - its currently set to open for the red team only - red spawn door - and there isn't a respawn visualizer included - hope that helps :D

    Don't have the model parentted to the actual door. Thats why its moving. You just want to use the SetAnimations, as Paria pointed out. Also, you'll have to type in open/close, because they won't show up in the drop down box.

    I tried to put those outputs in last night but for some reason it kept giving me an error because of the OnClose part I had to type in because it wasn't showing up on the drop down then when I typed it in the SetAnimation wasn't on the drop down anymore and whenever I just typed it all in it just gives me an error so I couldn't use it.

    I did have the prop set to parent the func_door I made. I don't know I will have to check tonight when I get home if that was the problem.
