    You don't spawn muzzleflash effects. It replaces the default effects that you see when you create an explosion or fire a gun (or use an emitter with the muzzleflash effect).

    All you do is take the materials folder out of the folder for whatever effect you want, and drop that into your garrysmod/garrysmod folder.

    I tried this, extracted the ultra_effect file into ...garrysmod/garrysmod/materials. Then I deleted every file except for realistic flash. When I try searching in game for realistic flash it's not in folders, nor does it come up in search.

    I've also tried just moving the materials folder out of realistic flash, then dropping it into /gmod/gmod/materials

    And I've also tried dropping realistic flash into materials. Nothing.

    This is what I've gathered from the thread.

    1. Open the .zip file.

    2. Pick out which folder you want, wether it be epic explosion, realistic, action, ect..

    3. Then open say "Realistic Explosion" folder and take that materials folder inside the Realistic flash folder, and put it into the gmod/gmod/materials folder.

    Didn't work. I also tried doing the above steps, but instead I tried moving the whole Realistic Flash folder into gmod/gmod/materials.

    I've tried everything I can think of and cannot get any of them to work. Can someone tell me EXACTLY which folder i need to move into gmod/gmod/materials. Because i've tried both the realistic flash folder, and the materials folde inside the realistic flash folder.
    But after i put those files in there only ONE Worked. i didint notice that they didnt work. olny the fucking realistic Explosin worked for me..........Ive tried everything too, put the folders in materials,and still ONLY the explosion worked..And im geting pissed off

    They override each other. If you put realism in, then put action-realism in, action-realism will replace the realism.

    I tried extracting Realism Flash materials to gmod/gmod folder and the emitter for muzzleflash is still the orange poof. Do I have to replace anything or just extract to the garrysmod folder, because it doesnt seem to be working for me lol

    Edit: Yeah when I extract the materials folder inside any Realism/Action/ect... folder to gmod/garrysmod it then apears as a "Realism Flash" folder inside Gmod folder. So even though I'm 99.99999999 percent sure im doing it right this time around the in game muzzle emiters are sill orange poof.

    Wow, why is this so hard.

    Say you want to install the realism flash (you can't have them all at once) You select the folder that says "Realism Flash" on it, and open it. Inside the "Realism Flash" folder you will find a folder that says "materials". Take that "materials" folder, and drag it into your "garrysmod/garrysmod" folder. Repeat that for any other effects that you want (just remember that you cannot have more than one flash effect at once.)That's it. It's not that hard. I don't understand why so many people have having so much trouble with this.

    Because I'm doing exactly what you say now. The other guy is still bent on trying to get all of them to work. I'm going into folder Realism Flash. Then I see the folder materials inside Realism Flash. I am now right clicking, and extracting to /garrysmod/garrysmod folder. Now when I launch the game, the emitters are still orange poof.

    I really don't want to download a screenshot program to show you I am doing EXACTLY what you have said. Granted I really F'd up the first attempts, but now I am doing it to the exact T.

    The added picture shows the materials folder I am extracting to garrysmod/garrysmod



    Edit: Is there a way I can manualy place each file to replace the muzzleflash emitter effect? Even though it'd be a pain I really only plan on using the realism and I'm fairly certain I'm doing the correct steps and it is not working :D

    It's a material. So, theoretically, it should work if you just place it in the right folder and name it correctly.

    The rocket fire derives off of the muzzle flash sprites so they will be replaced with the flashes. As for the smoke trail (or the smoke particles in general) I have attempted to change them over and over again, but for some reason I can't find the right file names. =(
    Hey dude,

    I don't know if you're still interested in modding the RPG smoke trails, but I hacked an e2 camera script that follows the crossbow bolt and spent almost an hour searching for the proper rpg filenames to work with to make the camera linked to RPG. We succeeded in finding the proper names for an active RPG round so if you still want them send me a PM.

    Nice work though. Maybe I'll try it out on my servers but was wary of potential particle lag and I'm assuming others would need to manually download the addon?

    Whoa bump.

    And no. L4D uses a different kind of particle system that isn't quite as easy as a simple reskin :saddowns:

    Man you fail, open the folder that you downloaded the rar to, right click on it and click " extract to "ultra_effects_pack", then open that up, copy over the one you want, simples!

    Why mods are closing recent threads instead of old as shit ones? This is weird.
