Particles.

This forum is currently in read-only mode.
  • Hello everyone.

    I have a technical question about the particle object. If a particle object is not producing particles(i.e. a rate of 0), does it have any performance footprint?

    I can see thanks to the lovely debug, that when set to "one shot" the particle instance is removed after it's done it's dash. I've made a little fire effect, that peters outs, however the fire particle object instance stays.

    I have set up a private variable that will destroy it, but it looks bad if i pause using the time scale, as the PV continues to build and will destroy the object mid pause. While it works, it looks bad, so any help would be awesome.

  • If you pause by setting time delta to 0, then objects wont move and the particle object will stop spawning particles.

    I imagine you might be writing:

    Set life to life - 1

    instead, replace 1 with timedelta*60

    That way, pausing will work, and if you decide to add slow motion into your game, you wont need to worry about particles being destroyed too fast

  • Wow, nice

    I have it all working nicely now thank you. There is a drastic time difference between TimeDelta and Ticks hey?

    I assume TimeDelta*60=1 second?

    If your frame rate is 60 then yes
