I've run into an issue that I'm having a problem trying to figure out to correct.

It has to do with the [Amindef] Animated Definitions within my map and in particular... switches.

I can get the switch to operate by it's frame change, sound and Linedef function, but I can't get it to reset
back to it's start position, to be used again. Below, is an example of how I have my custom switches loaded
in my Amindef lump.

SWITCH [Switch's texture name 1] off sound DSSWTCHN pic [Switch's texture name 2] tics 0
SWITCH [Switch's texture name 2] on sound DSSWTCHX pic [Switch's texture name 1] tics 0

I'm a little familiar with writing some script for certain actions within my map and I've tried quit a few
changes within this lump without any success. Below is a copy of the error report I get when I test my
map with the latest version of Gzdoom.

I know it's quite a bit here and I apologize for the probably unnecessary information, but does anyone know
what's possibly going wrong here. Like I said, I can get the top line of the command to function, but the second line command won't.

Please help... Thanks

You have to flag the line itself as repeatable. As long as a line is a one time trigger the switch won't reset and can't be used again.

My fault for not mentioning...

I use DeePsea

Thank you for your post anyway, buddy ;-)
