Particle Editor - Quick Questions

Hey guys,

im currently working with particle editor. Basically I switched to
Alien Sworm tools, because its much easier with its interface to work
on particles. But I want to transfer my finished particles into Garrysmod.

Is this even possible ? What if I use materials from the alien sworm path ?
Would people still see the particles in garrysmod ?

Or how can I import hl2 materials in the particle editor, because
I only see the alien sworm materials / sprites…

Thanks a lot

Maybe try copying stuff from alien swarm to Garry’s Mod?

Try going to this directory:



C:\Program Files\Steam\SteamApps\common\alien swarm\swarm


I can’t test this to be sure, but there may be some folders called ‘materials’, ‘models’, and ‘particles’.
If there is a ‘particles’ folder and it has your particle in it, try copying it to Garry’s Mod.
