Particle systems must be registered in a manifest file. These are:

  • particles\particles_manifest.txt
  • particles\<map name>_manifest.txt (per-map)
Confirm:The second manifest option may not work in Portal, Ep2, or old OB mods.


Tip:Systems within PCFs prefixed by a ! character will be precached globally. Others will be precached on-demand by entities.
