Hi gang,,
i'm using demo, but getting full version soon...
is it possible to make the lights in my game flicker,
like a loose fixture or a faluty bulb... in some lights,
or a pulseating light or one that spins on it's side like a red alarm siren...

thanks...

Hey try this for the flickering script. I messed with it last night and it looks pretty convincing.

Yep, the tutorial is really good! I just modified it. I think I got the timing down pretty good.

here it is:




Enjoy!

Ok, what are your computer specs? My specs are AMD Athlon 3500+, 1024Mb RAM and Geforce 6600GT. Do you think it will work good on my computer?

It was a christmas present from my wife she gave me $1000 to either buy or build a PC so I opted to build one and after rebates and buying a my processor, hard drive, ram, case, monitor, processor cooling unit, motherboard it came to just under $800. here is a list of the stuff I got:

K8 Triton (gigabit tech) motherboard w/AGP8x slot.
x2 1024MB pc3200 400MHz
x1 250 gigabite hard drive
x1 amd athalon 64 3700 claw hammer
x1 CPU cooler(fan & heatsink) THis things keeps my CPU at around 3c/37f in temperature.
x1 el cheapo gaming case with neon lights.
17 flat panel monitor
x1 geforece fx 5600 256MB (AGP)
x1 Creative labs fuill duplex sound card (for my music recording projects

I went with that processor because My motherboard has a 3 gig maxout for ram so I have two gigs now and am waiting on the third stick to get here. I would have bought a better processor but you can flood your motherboard with ram to ease the CPU's workload.

I will build a better one in a few years I suppose.
