Particle FX Menu Help

Recommended Posts

Hello, Im having trouble with looping a particle effect in my Particle Effect menu, when i use the code below my menu keeps blinking and then if i keep the effect on the effect doesnt show on my screen does anyone know why this is happening? also if i remove "WAIT(500);" the game lags very badly, here is the code i used,

 

if (featureWeaponExplosiveAmmo) // i just replaced this with the effect
{
if (bPlayerExists)
STREAMING::REQUEST_NAMED_PTFX_ASSET("scr_rcbarry2");
GRAPHICS::_SET_PTFX_ASSET_NEXT_CALL("scr_rcbarry2");
GRAPHICS::START_PARTICLE_FX_LOOPED_ON_ENTITY("scr_clown_appears", playerPed, 0.0, 0.0, -0.5, 0.0, 0.0, 0.0, 1.0, false, false, false);
WAIT(500);
}
Does anyone know why?
Thanks! :)

You're if statement is wrong. If that is false, then STREAMING::REQUEST... isn't going to be called, but everything else is going to be. Surround STREAMING::REQUEST... and WAIT with { }s, like so:

if (featureWeaponExplosiveAmmo) // i just replaced this with the effect{if (bPlayerExists){STREAMING::REQUEST_NAMED_PTFX_ASSET("scr_rcbarry2");GRAPHICS::_SET_PTFX_ASSET_NEXT_CALL("scr_rcbarry2");GRAPHICS::START_PARTICLE_FX_LOOPED_ON_ENTITY("scr_clown_appears", playerPed, 0.0, 0.0, -0.5, 0.0, 0.0, 0.0, 1.0, false, false, false);WAIT(500); }} 

2.

WAIT(500) is going to make your menu blink because it isn't going to be drawn for the 500 milliseconds that the script is waiting.

3.

When you remove WAIT(500) and it starts lagging, it's because you need at least a WAIT(0) somewhere in your loop.

Sounds like you don't want help, but would rather somebody else would code it for you, which is not what I'm on this website for.
