Odd, quirky, and difficult thing to do. I will go over the whole thing so that I don't hafta again.

Set up the surface that you want to be the camera portal following the rules for mirrors found in this thread.

Texture the surface with common/mirror_yavin (just because I like mirror_yavin) and place a misc_portal_surface within 64 units of the surface. Target the misc_portal_surface at a misc_portal_camera (placed where you want the point of view of the camera to be). THEN target the misc_portal_camera at a target_position.

Thus you should have something like:

Brush with front face covered in common/mirror_yavin

misc_portal_surface (64 units from brush):
target t1

targetname t1
target t2

targetname t2

JO cameras/mirrors are VERY quirky about placement, so make sure you read the mirror thread to make sure you have it set up right.

There are three things that I paricularly hate: kids, animals, and women with attitudes. - Map Showcase and Tutorials!
