[Resolved] cannot edit Particle Effects
« on: Jun 13, 15, 03:49:13 PM »

It seems that I am unable to edit any particle system in the engine

Basically you are able to edit the FX systems but you are not able to edit the .prt or the _p,prt in the properties panel. I have tried in other areas other than mine or just copying the system with no success. Also I cannot select any assets in my world or at least not for long, It might be because I have so many assets in my sandbox that it basically deselects the asset the moment I unclick it.

Is there a change to how we create particle effects?

I confirmed this:

When selecting a particle emitter, the properties page only show the emitter instance properties, but not the tabs for the particle specs themselves.  Thus, there is no way to edit particle systems.

This is fixed in the update we plan to put out with a tentative date for this week.

Hey guys, just a note here.
It is possible to edit the emitter and particle files in notepad++ and upload them again.
the settings are laid out pretty straight forward in the file.

to see the changes take affect however you'd have to remove the current loaded particle asset from the area, and reload it.
