I have no Idea how to properly import images into fx.xml because goofans wont tell me. Because of this, it is crashing world of goo because I dont have an image for my custom particle. Someone tell me how to PROPERLY add images to fx.xml

First, put the image somewhere. For example, res/images/fx/bone

After that, you'll add that to the resources.xml, something like

Then, when you want to use the image, use "IMAGE_FX_BONE".

It stopped crashing, but the image wont show up! My resources path is properties/boltfx (boltfx is the image) does this path effect my resources?

Joined: 05/11/2011

Yeah. Put the image in the fx folder, and make a path to res/images/fx/boltfx. That should work.

The particles don't show up! I set the particle effect to a fire geom, and changed the resources path, and it doesn't show up!

What was the effect based on? If it's something instant like beautypop or splash, it won't show.

Does the regular effect work? Also, paste the particle effect in something like this so I can help further.

The full path is removabledisk/iggworldofgoooo/res/images/fx/boltfx
Should I add this full path?

You only need res/images/fx/boltfx

I checked the effect you used, and I tried it out myself. It doesn't make a lot of particles, so I decided to try to make an effect for you. Hope you don't mind.

   <particleeffect name="electricfx" maxparticles="30" rate="0.5">
  <particle image="IMAGE_FX_BOLTFX"
            rotspeed="0.2" 
            directed="false"
            scale="1.0,2.0" 
            finalscale="0" 
            fade="true" 
            additive="true"
            lifespan="0.5,1"
            speed="0.2,0.4" 
            movedir="0" 
            movedirvar="180" 
            acceleration="0,0"/>
</particleeffect>

That's ok! Does it work? If it does how can I make it work?

Joined: 05/11/2011

I've tested to make it work and see if its kewl.

Anyway, just put this into the fx.xml.bin and you should be good to go.

Yeah, particles are one of the most difficult things in this game to make. A while back, me and a few other goofans made a level with custom particles, I may have a look and I'll see if I could maybe help you fix it

Try using an image of 32*32. It's what I did for the particle effect I made, and it worked fine.

If you used your effect, one thing I noticed was that it didn't make a lot of particles. Maybe that's why.

Once again, which effect? The one I gave you, or the one you made?
