Piston Help
« on: August 29, 2005, 04:59:31 PM »
I need help with a piston...

Im making a Campaign and on the 3rd level i cant get this piston to raise an object attached to a sphere that the piston is effecting...

But when i start the piston goes haywire and breaks the chain...

And the piston is linked to a switch... I held K and clicked the switch...

Why does it do that???

I have a Push piston on the right of the sphere and a pull piston on the right of the sphere and a half pulled piston on the middle...

Is that correct? '<img'>

This is how it looks when i dont even press the switch/when it goes haywire:


Why does it do that?
And why you dont see any chains is because there already on the ground.

If you want me to help, post either:
- A more detailed description.
- The level or a reduced test case.
I rarely check this forum anymore. Feel free to send me a PM if you want my attention.

I solved it by reconnecting the pistons. '<img'> Maybe you used the wrong type? (can't check because the editor doesn't allow me to, and I don't know yet which number is which anchor on an object)

How???

What are the types now and where did you connect them?

    Hold 1 Left Click = Add light rope
    Hold 2 Left Click = Add heavy rope
    Hold 3 Left Click = Add light chain
    Hold 4 Left Click = Add Heavy chain
    Hold 5 Left Click = Add a push piston
    Hold 6 Left Click = Add half pushed piston
    Hold 7 Left Click = Add a pull piston
    Hold 8 Left Click = Add half pulled piston
    Hold 9 Left Click = Add Bar
