    OK, so I didn't know where else to go to ask this. TF2Mods.net doesn't have a working forum (yet?), and if Gamebanana has one, I can't for the life of me find it in that tangled-up mess they call a layout.

    I'm working on a reskin for the Bonk! that includes a new label for the can and a new effect to replace the "freakin' blur" that appears behind him. I got the first part, but I know almost nothing about particle effects, nor what specific files would need to be replaced. What I have in mind is a very simple one-dimensional texture that would stretch out behind him and gradually fade out to invisible. No warp or blur effects; just the texture.

    Can it be done?
