September 30, 2010 at 12:15 am #3722 MongooseParticipant Hi Peter, Is there a way to draw only specific layers within an effect, rather than just spawning whole effects on different particle managers? I noticed particles have a ‘layer’ parameter, or is this merely for Z-sorting within the manager itself? If so, is there a way to pick out which particles are on which layer, and choose which layer you’d like to draw? For example, in Explosions.eff, there is Mushroom 2 that contains: Dust – Layer 0 Fire – Layer 0 Collumn – Layer 0 Explosion – Layer 0 Glow1 – Layer 1 Ground Smoke Container – Layer 0 Now, say in the case of my drawing manager- You wanted the explosion to be behind the player (On Layer 0, Background – Player occupies Mid ground), but the glow to be in front (Layer 2, Foreground) – Think this is possible?
