No Muzzle Flash Effects On Clients

Postby karrilon » Mon Sep 03, 2018 12:59 pm

Hi

After solving my gun attachment problem a new one has emerged. I’m running an 8 PC multichannel system. All guns and effects are working correctly on the Host PC but I get no muzzle flash effects on the clients. Is this a known problem or have I missed something? I’ve added Attachments and GunSystem files to the clients, updated the Aircraft.cfg and added my modified muzzle flash effect file. Any ideas?

Best
Richie

Hi Richie,

Are you seeing this issue with the default AC-130?

Hi Richie,

In multichannel, all content should be the same on the host machine as well as the slave machines. This is especially true for particle effects. If particle effect content is not the same on every machine, the effects will not show. Are you noticing other effects displaying correctly?

Thanks.

Hi Clifton

The effects file mismatch has now been resolved and I get muzzle flash on the clients but only while the aircraft is on the ground. I still get the effect on the master while airborne but not on the clients.

Thanks
Richie
