Mapping Help
This is the place to ask about mapping problems, techniques, and bug fixing, and pretty much anything else you want to do in the level editor.

Event Bug 
Do you have "wait" set on the path_corner? The page you linked says that event isn't compatible with that (it's really more an acknowledgement of a bug than a design decision, but still). 
 
Maybe a silly question, but how do people get it so that textures on faces that aren't parallel to the grid don't stretch? 
 
I use Valve mode to prevent that. You can convert to Valve format by using Eric's tools and you can also choose the format when creating a new map in Trenchbroom (drop down menu on bottom right when selecting the game for which you want to make maps). 
 
Ah, the map format thingie. Thanks. Guess Valve is useful for something these days. 
@Preach 
No, "wait" not set 
See The Map 
Hard to say what's going wrong without seeing the map itself then, email it over to me and I'll take a look... 
@Preach 
Pardon me! I use my own utility for select a portion of the map and this utility changes "target" to other name.

I try simple compile and it works correctly.

Sorry once again! 
Trigger Problems 
Hi!
Got a real bad trigger problem in my first map.
When I come to the middle of the game and have passed some triggers the others are all fired. Doors are opend things are working without activation?

Any idea to this?

Targetnames Vs. Targets 
It's easy to get these mixed up. Double check everything. And what editor are you using? 
@dumptruck_ds 
Trenchbroom 2.

The only idea I have is to give every trigger a targetname. Could this help? I checked some targets before and they all have different names so I can't imagine why they should be activated when one target begins with cave_ and another with sink_. 
GunSgtHighway 
No reason to give triggers a targetname unless you want another entity to trigger it. So that might make things a bit confusing.

Without seeing the map it's really tough to know what is up. If you'd like me to take a look I can this evening.

One suggestion is to create a new test map and re-create each target/targetname one by one there to ensure your map isn't somehow corrupted and to double check you are following the right logic in your setups. 
 
Doesn't "everything has fired" normally happen when you set a trigger with a blank target field (as opposed to no target field)? Check for that. 
@ Dumptruck_ds And PRITCHARD 
Thanks for your help guys!

After giving every trigger and button a targetname the problem doesn't come back. It seems that wathever triggerd the problem, giving a name to these objects avoids other triggers to activate them or there targets.
And yes there was a trigger with no target and only a killtarget so I fixed that.

Looking forward to upload a full playable beta in a month when fixed the last issues. 
 
wtf is trenchbrooms problem, the first time i run it i import the q2 texture wad, it works fine, now it wont work at all, the necros gui will not launch, nothing wants to work anymore wtf has gone wrong, ive even reinstalled it and it wont even regonize that q2 wad anymore. 
 
Theres a lack of information and an abundance of attitude in that post. Please try posting again and correcting these 2 things. 
 
I dont really know what else there is to explain, i goto materials add the wad, and no textures load, I've tried different wad files and nothing.

and the thing is it worked the first time i booted trenchbroom, just add the wad, not much else to it, and it worked but when i exited and started again it just will not load wad files anymore

is there some reg files i can delete? 
 
To clarify, youre attempting to load textures for Quake 2? Quake2 doesnt use wads so youre confusing the issue a bit.

I set Q2 up and got it to work. Closed and restarted TB, still works. Did you perhaps make changes to the quake2.cfg in your trenchbroom/games folder? 
 
No just a quake 1 map using the q2tex00.wad, Ive used it before

only log message i get is

Could not load palette file 'gfx\palette.lmp': File not found: 'gfx\palette.lmp' 
 
all sorted, just had to reinstall it a few times, no idea what its problem is still. 
 
providing that error message wouldve been a massive help :D

you must have done some changes in your quake/id1/gfx directory that got rid of the palette.
