Bf 2142 Effects Go Broken

Recommended Posts

Now this bug, we have encountered many times, for some, for us unknown reasons, the effects brake down in the game as we added alot of custom effects made by me.

Truely troubling is that each effect, individually works 100% in editor, as ingame, but these said good effects brake down beyond a point, regardless how they named, are they used on the map or not. The simptomes are the following

-Missile Trail Flame texture randomly changes texture

-Missile Trail Flame / Glow starts scale randomly and suddenly

-Generic explosion FX not appear ( empty map, no other FX, activity )

This we encountered many times, we scrapped and rebuilt the effect directory of our mod by 3 times now, remove suspected effects that cause it, and remade them differently, yet this still comes back, and affects all effects, mainly projectile related ones as trails, and explosions.

Now if some one knows the answer where to look the error, or what can cause this sevear brake down of many FX elements that individually works perfectly, named uniqely, with the right syntax, and its not an core issue of the BF 2142 engine, would be the biggest help to us, me especially, to finish our mod.

Any ideas, help is welcome.
