well ill get to it. on my new map i have a long hallway which i want the player to past a certain point and a set of bollards will pop up an give the player some cover to hide behind. i want the bollards to only pop up 32 and not to the ceiling.

how would i go about this, i am not using any specific port just a limit removing one. would i be a script? i just a little lost atm

if u need some screen shots i can do it for yas!

Hey that's kind of a cool idea. Reminds me of the new security checkpoints on the military bases here where they have these big posts that shoot out of the ground, or a humongous cement barrier raises up if you try to run through the checkpoint.

Also I think Ribbik's method should work fine for any vanilla map. Pretty sure in ZDoom's more advanced formats you can simply specify how high you want the floor to raise in the map data, no scripting or anything involved.

You would need dummy sectors for any other height, but in that case you can just use "floor raise by 32" action.

There's a switch action that will raise the floor 32 units in vanilla doom/2. 32 units isn't high enough to block projectiles/attacks though, unless you're meleeing demons?
