    I'm having issues with particles
    I've made a custom pcf in the particle editor
    put it is the particle_manifest.txt file
    made a custom map to test it.
    And no mater what I do no particle will display


    Before you ask, yes I tested the map with other working particles.

    ples halp

    1. Is the particle set to be active? By default it starts disabled.
    2. Is your particle manifest named (yourfullmapname)_particles.txt.

    Does the ingame console give any errors about missing particles?

    Your problem is probably because you aren't naming your particle manifest correctly. In this case, it should be particle_test_particles.txt

    Is your particle spawning in the world origin, and does it have any initializer that sets it's position, such as spawn within sphere random.

    Your particle manifest might be the cause, it looks like it might have some syntax errors. It should look like this: http://pastebin.com/jLYwtSFE
