Making chase scene restart after death

How do i make my chase scene occur again after the player dies? because as soon as i die everything is still the way it was before i died, making me die constantly at the checkpoint.

I'm sure i would be a IF i use but i would rather soemone explained it to me so i dont have to waste hours of trying to sort it all out properly.

RE: Making chase scene restart after death

RE: Making chase scene restart after death

This is for the original game right? not a modification?

it should reset properly, unless someone edited the files or something

I'm afraid your going to have to explain a little more in detail and tell us how too reproduce it and most likely wait for a frictional games developer who is familiar with that scene to assist

RE: Making chase scene restart after death

The script i showed you was from the actual game files. I want to be able to repeat a chase scene if the player dies, eg. have all the entitys and particle effects and sound's disappearing and restarting again.

The script i copied and pasted obviously works but i have no idea how to get that to work for mine, i wish i could just type in repeat then add in the script line(void collide i am using to start up the timers).
