(Help) GTA SA New effects that dont modify smoke and dirt particles?

Recommended Posts

lRaziel1

Do you guys know some new effects that modify only the fire, gun shots and such, everything BUT smoke and desert dust particles, because when you go to drive on desert roads its very annoying the much bigger amount of particles that is released compared to vanilla GTA. So does the smoke while you burnout or accelerate slightly. It becomes very annoying after a while.

 

So, anyone knows one?

I recall having to learn how to edit the effects.FXP when I got mine. The dust trails from the vehicles was just too big and on turf made it look like green smoke. The fountain particles were too big and didn't behave properly either. So I simply tinkered with the parameters until I got it right. I recall that it was tedious, but not difficult, everything was clearly labeled for the most part

 

I never did find the flaw that would fix the smoke machines in the dance clubs. As a result, I have no smoke coming from the smoke machines.

 

:/

Is there any program to do that? That would be great.

 

 

 

You can just edit out the particles you dont want with this http://gtaforums.com/topic/851436-relopensrc-magictxd/

 

 

Thanks a lot! I'll se what i can do with it, hope it doesnt crash if i remove textures.

I have no information on the suggested software, other than people seem to like it. As for me, I opened it with Notepad, though it takes a minute to open because its a huge amount of lines of text.

 

Im sorry I dont remember exactly how I did it. It was years ago. I think the last time I was in there it was to change the color of the spray paint.

 

I remember it took some screwing around for a while, but I eventually figured it out. Always make back ups. The trick, iirc, was finding the name of the particle because a lot have similar sounding names, so it can take more than a few F3s and wrong edits. At least it did for me. I start with some noticeble change to make sure I got the right one, then play with the parameters for size, speed, rotation etc.

 

Perhaps the other fellows software suggestion would make it easier, I dont know. In that case, you would be editing actual images, whereas editing the effects.FXP is more a matter of changing how the particles are rendered, thus the options like rotation and such. I couldn't say what the effect of editing the actual particle images would be.
