Help scripting an opening and closing door.

Hallo!

Um...I would like to have the old haunted house trope of a door opening a little and then closing and then opening a little again and then closing (repeatedly) by its self until the player tries to interact with it, when it can just stop and I am having trouble figuring out how to do.

I can make doors open *or* close but not do both on an essentially infinite repeat.
I *think* i may need some sort of timer loop thing (or something) but i can't figure it out.
Anybody got any ideas?

It's just the opening and closing bit i need help with, i think i could probably figure out how to stop it on an interaction myself...once i can figure out how to start it.
Ta,
Yours
W.S.

Ooo, that's a better way of opening doors than i was using before (Big Grin) but not quite what i'm asking for.

See how that opens and then stops? I would like the door to open (say 1/4 of the way) and then close again. Then open, then close and then keep on doing it in a loop until it's interrupted.

I provided the video not to teach you how to open a door, but for the fact that it provides example usage on timers.

These threads bring back so many feelings of Deja Vu...
