Preloads doesnt really work :S - neocrawler - 05-11-2012

Heey everyone,

Quote: AddEntityCollideCallback("Player", "ScriptArea_4", "Collide_ScriptArea_4", true, 1);

void Collide_ScriptArea_4(string &in asParent, string &in asChild, int alState)
{
PreloadParticleSystem("ps_break_wood.ps");
}

Preloads don't spawn a particle system, you're looking for:

CreateParticleSystemAtEntity(string& asPSName, string& asPSFile, string& asEntity, bool abSavePS);

Preloading is only done in the OnEnter function, and I don't necessarily know the purpose of it - I do believe it removes the lag that happens when events fire.
