if you wanna see ure self in a part of a map, do what sniper did in map MastaMike. Make a camera and point it in corner of room, kinda like 3rd person

You can't make mirrors, but you can fake them though. By coping the room and turning it 180 degrees, then make the floor func_wall with 96renderamt (um.) Now you got two rooms, and it will look like its mirrored. Would only be good on non-multipayer maps though

ok . . . there are no mirrors in hl. Hl is an old engine and can't support mirrors. At least i'm all most positive.

HEY. the hl`s engine ain`t DAT OLD, the only one i can think dats better is quake 3`s

OK heres an idea to make mirrors.
1) Make the glass for the mirror
2) Have a camera in front of the glass facing the player
3) Set up a trigger to where when the play walks in front of the glass he triggers the camera and looks at himself

Kinda cheezy but hey, its a mirror non-the-less

07-12-2001, 05:27 PM
hmmmmm i`ll jus make it glass. non see threw

the mod "The Opera" will have it in future, they want to code it, so its possible if you make your own mod.
