Hmm, it kinda works now. Not sure why though. I'm also trying to make the particle lifetime longer but they just die very quickly. Even with lifetime 500 they just disappear quickly.

If I remember correctly: larger values does not mean longer lifetime always. Try values 101,103,105 and 125 for the lifetime field and notice how greatly their lifetime changes. I think there was something really odd about how the lifetime worked with Flep.

I must remind that I might be mistaken due faulty memory.

The above values didn't really make that much of a difference, but 225 did. Now I only need to know how to make the particles scatter more in a shape of / \ rather than | but I'm not sure if there is any place for that.

Is this regarding the smoke emitters? I remember trying to use these before but not getting anything decent

Anyone know roughly the values for a good wind type effect. I've seen it done in some custom levels like War Of The Worlds and wondered how it was done.

Yeah I am trying right now and I'm getting some subtle results, although particles are still mystery to me. At least now I know start time and ending time mean the amount of time during which particles will fade in/out and not the time at which they should start doing it.

Anyway, I still don't know how to make my particles spread out more. It seems like they can only do that horizontaly or at an angle, I cannot make them spread vertically. The picture below shows my issue:

It means horizontal curve value

The third one would be the best option but I cannot achieve it somehow.

EDIT: I mean horizontal curve, not value. Sorry.

They're a mystery to me. Only tried to use them once and failed. You got a nice dust effect there! Would be good to see it in motion too

Yeah but they don't want to fall in the right direction. Too bad there isn't something like "vertical curve" option. Maybe this would help me.

Oh right haha I've read the instructions but it makes no sense to me. This is harder than scripting

I would like something like this:

9.31



I just have no idea where to begin.

I'm using FLEP, but how did you get this effect?
It's using smoke emitter, right?
Could you help me with that?

Just a page earlier Titak posted her settings to make particles fall down. Have you checked them?
