Round Based Events - How To Make And Reset Them?

<div class="IPBDescription">All you siege map makers HELP ME!</div> Lo chaps.

Right, I've got a problem.

I'll start off by saying this isn't ANOTHER siege map (phew), and that I'm not a complete mapping nub, I've got 4 years on and off experience under my belt.


I've created a forcefield/wall (func_conveyor), and I want it to drop after a certain amount of time when the round begins (NOT when the map loads) and I want it to reset again when the game ends ready for the next round.

I've seen it in alot of these pissabout siege maps - ns_siege1-7 (ns_siege007, ns_supersiege, ns_osmsiege, you know the lot) - but I can't figure out how to do it, I've asked around in #valveerc, #nsmapping & a few others, I've Googled, searched these forums and smacked my head against the Collective, but I'm still missing something here

I can use a simple trigger_auto to get a single delayed reaction when the map actually starts, but I need it to reset, and I need it to play properly from the round start.

Oh well, help me if you can guys! <!--emo&::nerdy::--><img src='' border='0' style='vertical-align:middle' alt='nerd.gif' /><!--endemo-->

    Thank you confused, the multimanager needed to be named "gamestartedstatus" to trigger automagically when the round starts.

    w00t, thanks m8.

    Siege maps typically use trigger_random for triggering targets based on time with min/max times set for the time to trigger, wait time -1, and ... with smart edit off... the name of the target with a blank or default value (the value doesn't mean anything in this case). They use one trigger random for each target, or target a multimanager that has fairly short time fields (as the whole reason behind using a trigger_random is that it will not count into the next round, like a multimanager will).
