Would be really cool if it could be benchmarked/automated some way when the game is first run with the option to manually change. I prefer not to use a particle limit as the detail limiter as it doesn’t look too good in an environment where most particle fade in (it starts to pulsate). I’ve also added a custom method to the tlParticleManager to perform as I wish with multiple viewports at different locations. Without it I couldn’t get the effects to draw correctly in different viewports. New fields for tlParticleManager Field vp_x:Float Field vp_y:Float New method to set the position of the viewport: Method SetScreenPosition(x:Int, y:Int) vp_x = x vp_y = y End Method and in the DrawParticles method I’ve changed the if statement for drawing to: If px > vp_x - e.Image_Diameter And px vp_y - e.Image_Diameter And py < vp_y + vp_h + e.Image_Diameter Not sure if there is another way to solve it using the existing methods but setorigin and setscreensize and setareasize didn’t quite cover it for me .
