I was looking for a good way to create a fire effect and stumbled across this PLATFORMER: Snow Fire Rain. Those effects were all created using sprites and not the particle system, which felt like it was probably quite inefficient depending on how C2's particle system works. So I recreated fire purely out of particles.
Fire Particle System Demo NOTE: Suitable for mobile apps
Now I have created this effect with just a 10 rate for each particle system as I wanted it to be resource cheap. However, you could probably just up the rate if you wanted something that looked even better.
I have attached the capx for anybody that wants to use it.
P.S As a bonus I added the burning player effect too.
Edit: Added Somebody's Fire effect with my frost modifications on right click.
Edit2: Added fire with smoke effect on middle click.
