    Cool Dynamic Lights tutorial - Lights Buttons Window Action!

    http://www.rclsoftware.org.uk/thief/dromed/lights.html

    Techniques described:
    • Using a pair of buttons as a light switch to control a lamp.
    • Using multiple pairs of buttons to control a lamp.
    • Making the light from a lamp shine through a solid-brush window (or not, if the lamp is switched off).
    • Making the light from a torch shine through a solid-brush window (or not, if the torch is extinguished).


    Experienced DromED-ers may just wish to glance at the diagrams, while beginners should follow the tutorial step-by-step.

    Enjoy.

    That's nice, but you don't need S&R for the torch thing.

    Torches will send TurnOff/TurnOn messages along CD links when they are extinguished/lit, so you can just link the Torch to the AnimLight with a CD link.

    You can also set the AnimLightPoint to be Random but Coherent, and setting the Renderer > Light Colour property to match the Torch.
