Is there a way to make a cod2 style loading screen (when loading finishes, you have to click right mouse button to start level)?

ScooT9 Yes, very easy. You have to plan it out first though so no action takes place until the player & levels starts.
First make a blank full screen hud. I usually just use a totally black one. Add text on it to tell player to "right mouse
click to start level" Place it in your gamecore\huds\*** The Name Of Folder***
Make a script to use in a triggerzone , place in your level anywhere.
Note: the next code shows just what I already had on file. "Level1\blank.png" is what I have & used. Yours would be a different file

Here the player is disabled for 999 sec's ( more than long enough, when player rmb click "blank" hud unshows & player is able to move again.
One thing... like I said before, have your action wait until player moves around. Planning ahead here is the key

I have never tried it, but one could even use a simple video, maybe a spinning hour glass or something.
I do know that LMB click and/or SpaceBar stops a video so the level can begin. Just another option
My games never have bugs. They just develop random features..
Lots and lots of random features...

I have a question, the loading screen will disappear and then the blank HUD gets shown?

Yes, with this simple script, attach to trigger and place anywhere in level. When "loading bar" finishes
level will start with a blank/black ( or what ever image you choose ) of course YOUR image will have a
different path to file When player click rmb hud will "unshow" and player is no longer disabled.
You can also have the hud "fadeout" slowly, or any combinations of other methods You choose.
Note: remember to have any "action" or music wait until the "hud" disappears and player can move about.
