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"

stop particles from going through walls


I'm having serious trouble getting my particle system to collide against walls correctly. What is happening is I am spawning a particle system attached to the character mesh. The particle system is a sort of light explosion, with particles spawning from the player and spreading out in a 360 degree radius bouncing off walls and moving freely. For the most part, this all works exactly how I want it to,

The problem is that when my character stands close to a wall, particles are going right through the walls? any one have any idea what could be causing this? I really need help and iv been experimenting with with this for 2 days now and cant seem to figure out the solution.
