yeah they spawn always from the centre point. It's really good for lasers, but looks odd for missiles.

If you want (It'd help :) ) you can rework your models so the center is the thruster.

your problem sounds like if you're using the D3D particles (from RT's build he posted).

just make your model a little more forward, you should be doing that anyway, as that is the point they will rotate arround as well, and that's the point the old trail code spawned around.

also I'm at school so I can't test it right now, I just thought it would look better if the trail was longer, if you'r useing a custome ani, just recompile with a smaller FPS in the ani properties (assumeing you'r useing ani builder)

Sure, I can do that. 5-10 mins on all the ones so far. I'll include the redone ones in the next pack (with the BIG warheads);)

Ah, I am runing with a D3D thingy (not up on source code type stuff).  Still looks good though.

And Kal, no need to swear about it. I'll remember next time.

Lightspeed, there seems to be a problem withe the perseus, it wont accept any secondary weapons. Not sure if its your ship.tbl causing this but I presume thats where this info is stored.

Ok I'm a newbie and this will sound like a dumb question most likely but I installed the latest version of the weapons package, as well as the latest version of the source code.  When I fly the first mission and fire the Subach I don't see anything.  It makes the proper sound, it impacts the target, does damage, but there is nothing there visually.  I checked to make sure all the ANI and image files were in the data/effects folder and sure enough they are.  The TBL files are also where they should be.  Any ideas?

Whoosh, over my head:confused:  .  I'm pretty green when it comes to all this, commandline flags?  Is that something in the tbl file or am I totally off?

:welcome:
Exits are to the rear and left . shotguns are located under the seats. Phaser rifles are available in the lobby, along with short-range flamethrowers. Avoid the air ducts, and if you see any Shivans crawling around in them, it's probably just me. Give me your lunch and back away slowly, and i'll probably leave you alone, depending on what kind of sandwich you have.

Still won't work.  I selected the appropriate tick boxes in the version 3.3 launcher and it didn't do anything.  Is there another program I might need to download?  I realized that my comp doesn't recognize ANI files, perhaps that might have something to do with it.  I thought I used to have a ANI reader of some sort but must've deleted it ago.

By the way, when I attempt to run FS with the tick boxes checked I get an error message like this:

Error: Unrecogzined command line parameter -jpgtga
File:E:\Languages\Visual Studio Projects\Visual C++\fs2_open\code\Cmdline\cmdline.cpp
Line: 540

Call stack:
------------------------------------------------------------------
    kernel32.dll 77e814c7()
------------------------------------------------------------------

It gives a similar error message for the other tick box.  However it doesn't prevent me from getting into the game.

Hopefully he's not using the standard FS2...

Edit: Ok, I didn't read the original post well enough. Ignor this one.

Have a look in the Latest Version of Everything thread. Get the version from there. I doubt that you are using the most recent version (3.5.5 is not the most recent, just the most recent official version).
Karajorma's Freespace FAQ. It's almost like asking me yourself.
