i tried this which i found here someplace but it doesnt work

Make a brush what ever size you want and cover all faces of it with a trigger texture

Assign this brush to a func_mortarfield and name it "mort1"

Now make another brush and cover it with a trigger texture

Assign this brush to a trigger_multiple and make its target "mort1relay"

Now add a trigger_relay point entity and make its name "mort1relay" and make its target "mort1"

Thats it now when you walk through the trigger_multiple the trigger_relay will target the func_mortarfield and will act as if the players killed by the mortar were killed by worldspawn

Or.... people could just not know how to help you. But go ahead, assume the worst.

No. I never got mortar fields to work in 1.3.
