Hi, I am a fairly experienced mapper, however, i am having trouble with a door. Basically, i have a large, single door that moves sideways. I have one switch that opens it outside the room. I have another inside the room. BUT.. I can only link one switch to the door in JK2 radiant. (latest). So therefore, the door can only be opened from the outside (not good). Im certain you can do it cos jedicouncilgc has close to a million doors and all have double switches. I have tried grabbing those doors (save selected) and load them but it aint work - cant link the 2 switches to 1 door. Hope someone can help.:confused: sorry if i went on a bit.!:lookaround:

Im assuming you are using the ol' "select two separate entities, and hit crtl+v" method of targeting the switch to the door? Althought, this method is fast and simple, in the long run it can cause headaches and frustration (like you're expirencing now, but worse). I would suggest u select the door, open the entity window {N}, give it the key: targetname and the value : yourtargetname. Close the entity window and deselect the door. Then select both switches, re-open the entity window and enter the key: target and the value: yourtargetname. Both switches should now have the same target value, and that target value should be the same as the door's targetname. Close the entity window, and move on with your life. Good luck

I think you can also clone the trigger and move one to the other side of the door?
