@Preach 
I looked at the code again and wondered why my attemp doesn't work.
I copied the trigger_cdtrack function (is equal to the code dumptruck_ds showed with a -change and -use procedure) from AD's target.qc to my progs_dump/triggers.qc next to the trigger_relay function and compiled the progs.dat.
Then I copied the trigger_cdtrack definition from AD's .fgd to my progs_dump.fgd with the windows editor.
When I entered Trenchbroom and changed to the new fgd (in new progs_dump folder with the changed progs.dat) I got this message: "progs_dump_112.fgd': At line 1, column 1: Unknown entity definition class '//'".
I think I'm not to far from a solution.
Have I missed to change or add something in the progs or done a failur in the fgd? 
 
looks like invalid characters in the fgd 
Byte Order Mark 
Yeah, if you encode the sequence "" in the default windows codeset and decode that as UTF8 you get character FEFF (a byte order mark). Working backwards I guess the program you used to edit the fgd saved the file as UTF-8 and added a byte order mark. Trenchbroom is then opening the file as 8-bit windows codeset text and seeing garbage at the top. Suggest you reopen the cfg file and save it in ascii format, which should get rid of the garbage. 
@Preach 
It should have been saved in ANSI.
I will try to save in Unicode and use notepad if it doesn't work. 
Got It! 
So. This challange is masterd.
For no reasons, the widows editor saves automaticly in UTF-8. So I changed that in ANSI and now theres a trigger_cdtrack in trenchbroom.:)
That's the good news.
The other is that I was wrong about the compiling.

Whatever progs.dat I decompile and recompile ,with fteqccgui64, I get messages like this:"defs.qc:328: error: "ev_field" is not a type in function SUB_CalcMove (line 61), subs.qc:66: error: Unknown value "tspeed"Errors have occured Error in defs.qc on line 328."
The funny thing is that fteqcc shows erros, but
the progs work.

I have absolutly no idea what happens here.

I'm wondering whether you may have replaced an older version of QuakeSpasm with a newer version? The newest is 0.93.2, released November 2019.

From the thread dumptruck_ds linked:

metlslime: This is caused by lightmaps.

From the README for QuakeSpasm 0.93.2:

Lightmaps are now dynamically allocated (from QSS), and BLOCK_WIDTH/HEIGHT raised from 128 to 256.

So if you replaced an older version with 0.93.2, I guess this would be why that error went away? 
@iw 
Ahhh, enlightened!

I installed the newest version.
So it is a change in Quakespam.

Thank you very much.

best wishes.

Lazarus Misc_actor / Target_anger 
Hi guys, nearly got my new Q2 map ready for playtesting but struggling with a particular issue.

I'm using the Lazarus misc_actor to have a friendly marine attack some Strogg enemies but I want the friendly guy to stand still in one place while he shoots the bad guys.

I'm using the "Hold" spawnflag on the target_anger to achieve this:

HOLD Spawnflag (=16)
The target_anger will cause the misc_actor/monster_* to stand in place and not run around.


...but it seems to have no effect. The actor runs around trying to get close to the Strogg and, while he will occasionally shoot them, when he happens to find himself with a suitable angle to do so, he's largely useless and stupid.

Has anyone here used this feature in Lazarus and managed to get the actor to stand still when he's told to? 
Elevator Multi Level And Combining Mods? Help Lease. 
Hi,
New and signed up just for this! Really enjoying my first foray in mapping for quake.
As per title, I know you can make multi direction elevators with progs_dump mod (dowloaded from Dumptruck DS)
However I'm enjoying using AD mods for all the excellent extras it includes. - I cant figure out how to do it (multi level elevator) with AD!
Is there a way to combine mods? I can't find a way to do this anywhere either! ...or maybe a tutorial on how to customize my own mods and features / combine mods?
(on a side note, I spent 4 hours trying to raise/lower water into an electrified basement room!!! Urgh...failed)

Apologies if this has been asked before, please link to post if that's the case. Much appreciated.

Thanks in advance and I'll upload my maps in time! hopefully! 
@XG 
1)NO combining MODS.

2)Load AD and type "map test_2floorplat"
in the console.

Map is in the AD maps folder.
