Hello, again :wve:

This time I need an explanation on using the Falling_Block object. I do not know how to set it up. Or if you don't know, could you lead me to a tutorial for it?...

Thanks!

I hope that this is the correct thing I'm thinking of, you will need 2 rooms one to place the falling_block in and another room that you will fall into. The first two "I" is the top room the second two "I" is the bottom room. Then you need to make a dummy trigger. After you place the falling_block, click on it then go to the trigger window and then go to the trigger type window and select "Dummy" then press ok and place that trigger in the bottom room directly under the falling_block object. I hope this helped :)

Do I need to set the ground to a certain "opacity" setting?

no, but first you are talking about that thing where when you step on the floor it falls apart right?

lol, yea...
If I don't set the floor to a certain opacity, then how can I place the object on a door?

let me make some pics....

Ok first make the top room and place the falling_block object

Next place a room under where you put the falling block

Now you can connect the rooms together

Next you select one of the blocks

Then go to the trigger window and select "Dummy"

Then press ok and place your trigger directly under the object that you set the trigger for

I hope that was better :)

Actually...it's not working right...
Lara still falls right through...
Here's what I did:

I put the falling_block objects on the ground
I connect the first room [with the falling_block objects] to the second room
I select the first falling_block object
I change the trigger type to dummy
I click on the sector where the first falling_block object is on the 2D grid in the first room
I place the first trigger on that sector
I repeat for the second falling_block object

it has to go in the bottom room not the room with the falling block

thats odd, ive had this happen to me with the bike shattering floor, ill go check to see whats wrong

Edit:

I can't find anything that could cause that, are you sure it was setup as dummy?
