This is a tough one. I have an idea, but I'm not sure what it'll do. You might want to wait for Killer-Duck before you try my idea.

1. Create a thin brush and make it func_wall. In it properties set:
A) rendermode = Texture
B) FXamount = 0
1.. That's your window.

2. Create a HUGE brush that fills up the whole room and one side of it is touching the window. Make it func_illusionary, and texture it solid black. This means you can be in the black func_illusionary, and people from outside see only the black. This should work fine on the window side, but the rear end will be black and weird.

Maximum FXamount is 255. 80 should let light through, that's the whole idea...

That's what I was ranting about for hours. The func_illusionary is supposed to block the light...

This is a bug/feature in the Half-life engine, brush-entities don't block light.

I'm not sure of this, but if you're using latest version of Zoner you could go into the properties of the brush-entity and set "Light Flags" to "Opaque (blocks light)", not sure if it will work though...
QUACK! QUACK!
