 Post: #16 RE: particle.matrix yes but why still using the constant? even in your case and the car stands still it shoots the smoke out at the same speed.. and thats not very realistic unless u want to change its variables on the run. And smoke goes up and not down/left/right or whatever... it moves at the moment the car moves.. unless you're making a smoke shooter... There is always evil somewhere, you just have to look for it properly.

 Post: #17 RE: particle.matrix good point, but maybe he wants something with a little more oomph.. i tried setting vel_constant z to -3 and make it rotate according to the angle of the player but i got no luck - i tried setting the rotation axis to the character and rotating it using matrix rotate.

 Post: #18 RE: particle.matrix yes thats because particles matrix affects only particle position, the orn/rotation doesn't work. There is always evil somewhere, you just have to look for it properly.

Yes, exactly but how to achieve it?

I'm using vel_constant for example and for learn something new. Btw Look on this video and flames. Car isn't moving - flames have some force in moment of creation. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rwCttR4i4...re=related Yes i know i can change its variables on the run but i don' want. Ooooo, better example. My Chr:: would like gun - Flamethrower. How can i make it for him? It should shoot flame in every direction (360 degree). Example video - Flamethrower - is it possible to make using EE particles ? - no shaders. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nAEAa-IiFRk (This post was last modified: 02-21-2011 12:49 PM by Mardok.)

 Post: #20 RE: particle.matrix just remembered I looked for something similar just regarding raycasting. Ray testing rotation Edit: lots of edits today (This post was last modified: 02-21-2011 01:07 PM by Zervox.)
