    For some reason, particles from Frontline won't work.
    I did a my_map_manifest (with my_map being my map ofc) with the Particles listed in them, this is what it looks like

    particles_manifest
    {
    "file""!particles/wartime_explosions.pcf"
    "file""!particles/wartime_tank_fx.pcf"
    }

    When they are supposed to show up, the console just says "trying to create unknown particle etc."
    Any idea on what i did wrong?

    Your particle manifest should be called yourmapname_particles.txt, not yourmapname_manifest.txt. The YOURMAP_manifest.txt file that they provided as a template is wrong. It should be YOURMAP_particles.txt.
