If you're going to stick with this type of effect, it would probably be a good idea to switch to a perlin-noise beam like the vortigaunt's zap attack from Episode 2.

Not quite what I thought you meant by "particle one".
You could have meant a stream of particles like fire.
Or maybe metaball particles (Portal 2' paint) for acid.

Sense they are in ASW, they can use the metaballs, because they are available in ASW's particle editor.

I doubt they are suitable for a long range attack like the Creamator's cannon.

I think I saw a shader for fluid particles in Nvidia's papers. It had something do do with rendering the particles to a Depth buffer, creating world space normals from that, and lighting it deferred style. I think there was a "thickness" buffer in there too that controlled color saturation or something. Ofc I'm explaining this with my nonexistent knowledge on how shaders work.

It ends up looking pretty nice if done right.

I have no idea if this effect can be achieved in Source though.

This one looks pretty outdated (the zap effect) for source.
It fits in GoldSource, but here...

Btw, I thought the Cremator was originally supposed to spray acid from his gun. And a pipe goes from the gun to that 'poke-ball' on his stomach. It makes more sense than green lightning, lol :V

All his weapon sound files in the game start with "plasma" so maybe it just has highly flammable juices in its gut.

Alien Swarm is it´s own source engine - branch, and Orange Box (S2007 & 2009. 2009 being unmodable due to lack of sdk base and source code. yes, you can map for it and thats it) is it´s own source engine - branch.

The cremator never had a flamethrower, it had a different method of disposing bodies with its weapon. Just burning bodies on the streets would actually be quite nasty thinking about it now.

Keep in mind guys, this is just a test map, and we don't plan on sticking with that green beam effect. But yes we are alive even if we don't always talk about what we're doing.

Also a fun bit of trivia: Contrary to popular belief, the green electricity effect was never supposed to be the Cremator's attack. This was actually the Strider's old weapon. The more you know!

Even though I AM happy about this, I just realized that this is JUST a test map. Even though before I just wanted any kind of update, I just realized how small this one is. Keep up progress though, before I stop being nice. (I'm joking)

You're being an ***. You little mother ******, why are you doing this to your fans? YOU are now acting like a ****. If this creamator is the last update, a simple test map and nothing big, you can go and **** yourself. Everyone here, all of you used to be fans are now likely going to give you the middle finger salute.

So far you're the only one. And we don't even want you as a "fan".

Sorry to once again break it to you. You're an entitled little kid that needs to grow up, and realize the world doesn't care about you.

ps. I hope you stop being a "fan" of us. Thank you and bye.

I am a fan of this mod, but you just been too much of an ******* for me to contribute.
Why have you stopped updating? Is it just to **** me off more?
1. You're being a ****
2. The reason other people aren responding is because they dont want to start flame wars with you

The only one going for a flame war here is you. Please don't think we consider you at all we when we make decisions. I'm sure others haven't replied because they're not idiots.

You've been as *** since the first post you made on our page, we've asked you to go away, but you just come back and start calling us names instead? I can't really see how you're a fan of this at all.

So you'd rather we spend time on making content with the purpose of keeping you in the loop instead of getting things done that'll get a release closer?

You're still the only on that's flaming, I'm just replying to your comments.

I can not emphasise this enough. We don't care if you're not a fan anymore. Go be a fan of some other mod that'll keep you updated.

ps. we've posted updates on our forum, and loads of updates on our IRC channel.

Somthing you should know is that all other mods that are "trying" to make a HL2 beta are either
1. Full of viruses
2. Suck balls
3. Never update even longer than this one
4. They have a Trodjan virus

So really there is no other mod that actually is trying. Also I would not like to have things to keep me in the loop. I would like this mod to be finished soon since this is a good mod. I think that you should at least tell us what your not updating, if you are either

1. Are not going to update you fans
2. Are no longer working on the mod

If you are no longer working on the mod, tell us so we at least have a reason to support this mod. Not only that, but one of those mods that you suggested to me got me a virus, so I had to get a new computer. So you have made me have to spend houndreds of dollars on a new computer.

ps. Make a reasonable responce.
