Some particles in my maps are not showing up

Things like explosions (whether caused by exploding props or an env_explode), sparks and muzzleflashes don’t show up in my maps. Dustmotes and particles spawned with info_particle_system, however, do show up.

This is the case in every map I make and I have no idea what is causing it.

Does anyone here have any idea what could cause this and how to fix it?

I think it’s now fixed, thanks to Firegod522.

oh wait no it is not fixed

You could try and extracting the particles from the .gcf and putting them in your ep2 folder.

Perhaps I should have mentioned it but this particle problems also appears when other people play my maps.

However, I’ll do what you just told me.

I think it’s now fixed. Thanks.
