Particle effects Secrets

So we know there are two types of particles. One is a type of particles that has a center, another is one without center. How can you change the type?


Particle movement direction. It seems that changing a movedirection of a particle effect with a center does not affect the actual direction. Why?


Which one of the two properties starting with "direction" actually changes the direction?

Anyone? Please?

One of them uses an ambientparticleeffect tag, the other is just particleeffect. Ambient means screen-wide.

You probably want to have directional set to true for that. Wink

Both, in combination.

Hope this helps.

Those are no secrets, it's very well documented here Wink:

The attributes your are searching are movedir and movedirvar.

What value did you use and what was the original one?
What is the movdirvar value?

I tried making an effect like bubbles, which go up. Copied all the values except for the image and id.

Ok, but you said you've changed some attributes and nothing changed at all. Which attributes have you changed and which values did you use?
