L4D: How to Create an Elevator Part

Following video tutorial is a part 2 series. I go through all the steps required to create a function-able elevator in Left 4 Dead.

We will set up a button sequence to have our elevator travel to 2nd floor and back down on button press.

Creating an Elevator:

Go to func_button properties and under outputs set up New Output and add the following:
