How to view particles

Since pcf files can contain multiple particles, I want to know how would I view particles? I can’t view them in any of my source games since I don’t have a compatible one, except CSGO (Crashes everytime I do the method). H

Here’s a handy link: https://forums.alliedmods.net/showthread.php?t=127111

I want to view CUSTOM pfc files, not just ones from the source games. I think I am fucked.

Open them in TF2.

Didn’t think of TF2. Now to remove some other games for 10 gig game ._.

You can also open the .pcf in notepad and search for the names of particles manually, if you know what you are doing and can distinguish particle names from particle attributes.

That saves a lot of time. Thanks!
