well im back, I was woudering if anyone knows how to make a strobe light? I tryed to be cool and place a light in a cylinder like shape box that spins on the x-axis thinking that it would generate a cool low-strobe effect, but when i placed it into a pk3 the light was just going right thru the little mechism i made. could i have done something wrong ( BSP selection perhaps?)

[COLOR=black]Press 'n' to bring up the entities window for the light, and type this in:[/COLOR] [COLOR=red][COLOR=black]Key:[/COLOR] style[/COLOR] [COLOR=black]Value: 4[/COLOR] that will make the light strobe The quake 3 engine is rubbish with light and doesnt make shadows when brushes move etc which is why the light just goes through the rotating object.
