Search help

  • Simple searches use one or more words. Separate the words with spaces (cat dog) to search cat,dog or both. Separate the words with plus signs (cat +dog) to search for items that may contain cat but must contain dog.
  • You can further refine your search on the search results page, where you can search by keywords, author, topic. These can be combined with each other. Examples
    • cat dog --matches anything with cat,dog or both
    • cat +dog --searches for cat +dog where dog is a mandatory term
    • cat -dog -- searches for cat excluding any result containing dog
    • [cats] —will restrict your search to results with topic named "cats"
    • [cats] [dogs] —will restrict your search to results with both topics, "cats", and "dogs"

How make my mesh emitter particle system to spawn particles according to player orientation?

Hello everyone im new to cascade and the particle systems, so apologise in advance if this is a really noob question !

im doing a FPS game and basically im looking for the "shell flying off the gun" effect, I got it pretty much ready with exeption to 2 details that I need help:

1 my mesh emitter is always facing the same way ! im using my particle system as a notifiy on a weapon shooting animation, the moment I hit play and fire my gun the particle plays and shell mesh ejects as it should but it faces always the same direction, so if my character while playing turns 90 degrees and shoots the particle still plays like if it was facing forward. question is how do I make the particle initial orientation to be according to the player view? or the mesh the socket that spawns it or whichever way is better? also I notice a slight delay on the emitter even though I have it set to instant and my notifiy is right on the beginning of the timeline of the shooting animation...

please enlight me guys thank a million
