Remember the flare that goes up in the first sp map in waw? Im trying to get it to work for my map but I havnt to yet. The flare is a vehicle so I made a path of a vehicle and I have added the following to my map gsc

maps\_flare::main( "tag_origin", undefined, "white" );

looking at MAK.gsc I saw they had this line

level maps\_flare::flare_from_targetname( "flare1", 1, 2, 1, ( 0.83, 0.82, 1 ) );

so I made my vehicle have a targetname flare1 and add this to my map

Code:
flare()
{
	trigger = getent ( "flaretrig", "targetname" );
	trigger waittill ("trigger");
	level maps\_flare::flare_from_targetname( "flare1", 1, 2, 1, ( 0.83, 0.82, 1 ) ); 

	wait( 5 );


}


cause I want it to flare when i hit a trigger I also added the csv lines

rawfile,maps/_flare.gsc
fx,misc/flare_start
fx,misc/fx_flare_sky_white
fx,misc/flare_end


At the moment when I start the map it loads and then game immediately exits.

I might be on the completely wrong track anyone have any suggestions or know how to do this?

Did you try this? http://wiki.treyarch.com/wiki/Add_Flares_To_Your_Map

It looks a bit too simple for my liking.

Looks like Treyarch uploaded a tutorial written by Chris P, for Japanese Ambushing. This has flare stuff in it too!

i think that iof you can set upthat flare in the clinent side it might work a the flare fx is 1shots and only work clientside not serverside so wont run from gsc i think my best guess it has bothered me for ages i want to do the same thingis with other 1shot fx and a trigger setup
still working on it


i got errors about the utiility.gsc and stuff as iwas trying to do it server side adding the scripts to my map.gsc instead of the map.csc's
its all a bit above me but the slow blade penetrates the shield
