For those of you whom have played on The Academy (Version 3.0) map will know what I am talking about.
In the initial start area is a memorial to Vladiron and other members of The Jedi Academy. Now, this memorial is a hologram memorial. I've got the holographic part working.
But I can't get the little ray beam at the bottom and I can't walk through the hologram.
Does anyone have any idea how Virtue may have done this? Cause he sure as hell hasn't responded to my emails.

I have no idea what The Academy (Version 3.0) is but for a hologram to be nonsolid you need to either have the hologram shader(s) to have the surfaceparm nonsolid or the hologram to be a model, which would make it naturally nonsolid.
The hologram projection beam is usually an appropriate effect. I'm pretty sure there's something suitable among the Raven effects, though I don't remember any file names (since I use my own effect, which may have been altered from a Raven original but I don't remember anymore).
Awkward? You bet!

yeah, ramp shader. its a gradient texture with the same thing as the alpha channel, then you use the texture alpha and inverted texture alpha blendfuncs to make it dissapear over time. play with the gradient and stuff until you get it how you like it.
