Hey guys.

Ive been messing about with the particles.cfg file and stuff and i edited the fire trails and flames that come from the tires to look quite different then the original.

Below is the link to the video i just uploaded onto youtube.

Try not to set it on fire :P

question though, how come peds or cars go threw the flames after the deloreans vanished don't get damaged by them?

Aug 19 2007, 4:47am Anchor

its not a physical flame, its just a visual thing.

It doesn't matter what fire it is, they'll walk right through it and nothing happens, its always been like that.

Aug 19 2007, 9:56am Anchor

those flames looked like one big fire

Remember the movie itself? Marty was standing right in the flame, it's like a candle trick, when you hold your hand above the flame, but fire can't reach you, you only feel the heat.

Aug 19 2007, 10:28am Anchor

ah theres a good point

Aug 19 2007, 10:39am Anchor

it's not even fire. What it is is super cool plasma. The flames were real in the movies, not special effects, but they weren't real fire. It was something else. Because, you know, concrete can't catch on fire.

I saw how they were doing it. I am afraid, the moment when Doc and Marty turn back to see the trails, they're not real, though your theory seems to be correct.

This is probably the most realisic fire I've found. looks great in game.

where did you find that fire?
And ricardodude, if the fire is already buring after it explodes, they're just walk right through it.

Yeah I found that ages ago. The only problem is it makes the firesparks coming off the wheels before it hits 88 look ugly.

I know they catch on fire like that, what im saying is that after those couple of seconds they can walk right through the fire without anything happening.

Aug 19 2007, 11:48pm Anchor

no because the fire fades away, and I ran through the fire after the explosion was gone and so did the ped.

Aug 20 2007, 3:06am Anchor

thats an object burning, a ped, so its not a seperate object (a car fire wont catch u on fire either), while the Molitov fire, after the explosion will catch other things on fire

you're still not understanding what im trying to say.
Im not talking about right after the explosion im talking about the big fire burning on the ground for the last couple of seconds.

Aug 20 2007, 7:39pm Anchor
