    How would I create my own particle system and if I did create this particle system will it work to Pakrat the particle in the map via Pakrat?

    You add your <mapname>_particles.txt to the 'maps' folder inside the bsp.
    And the .pcf files to the 'particles' folder. (you have have to set it to view all files in the dir to find them!)

    According to this (7th and 8th post):

    The yourmap_particles.txt file gets packratted to the "maps" subfolder in the BSP and the PCF's get packratted into the "particles" subfolder.

    e.g.

    maps\pl_awesome_a1_particles.txt
    particles\awesome_effect.pcf

    EDIT: Ninjas. >_>

    not to derail the thread or anything but. what? Pakrat has not been updated since 2006 unless I've missed something obvious?
