PrecacheParticleSystem is a function provided to precache particle effects by string. Make sure to specify the name of the actual particle effect and not the name of the .pcf file. All child systems in question will be precached as well.

Usage

//-----------------------------------------------------------------------------
// Precaches a particle system

void PrecacheParticleSystem( const char *pParticleSystemName )
{
	g_pStringTableParticleEffectNames->AddString( false, pParticleSystemName );
	g_pParticleSystemMgr->PrecacheParticleSystem( pParticleSystemName );
}

Examples

void CWeaponSMG1::Precache( void )
{
	PrecacheParticleSystem( "muzzle_smg1" );
}
