    i have a few particles from a few out sources that i loaded for my map, they work on a small test room but when i run hammer on my main map with the particles in it , they particles just wont show and it keep saying "Attemped to precache unknown particle system".

    Now i know about particle manifest for when you finish and assemble the map but the particles worked in the test rooms without the particle manifest. A hammer test run is working with the test rooms, but with the same particle system is not working on my own map when doing a test run.

    anyone know what could be the cause?

    How about you type out what you did to fix your issue so people who may run into the same issue can find the fix by searching.

    in the map folder, doing a textfile with "yourmapname"_particles.txt and putting the particles of the particle manifest there instead of the particle.manifest particle folder

    That's what you're supposed to do in the first place.
