Particle Editing Tool

General knowledge

  • 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;wait;wait;wait;wait;wait;wait;wait;wait;wait;wait;wait;wait;wait;wait;wait;wait;wait;wait;wait;ent_fire info_particle_system start"
