General knowledge

Note:A recent update to the orangebox engine has broke the particle editor in all orangebox games and mods. (if this notice is still here, it's still broke)
  • To run the particle editor, run the game with -tools on the commandline and select 'Particle Editor' from the tool menu on the far right.
  • To load a map so you can test your particle, look to the console window at the bottom of the screen and type "map <levelname>"
  • A helpful command to restart all particle systems in a level - useful when tweaking them in the editor : bind "h" = "ent_fire info_particle_system stop;wait 120;ent_fire info_particle_system start"
