Yesterday ScorpionTail figured out one of the most strange mysteries of SoaSE: Rebellion, why lasers and other particle effects do not show up at times. Turns out the culprit is anti-aliasing; setting this to "None" ensures that Sins renders all particle effects, and also appears to be resulting in better game stability, useful in particular during MP matches. As such, I must say that everyone should turn off anti-aliasing and I once again thank ScorpionTail for his discovery and insight into something that's been boggling me for over a year now.
Anti-aliasing: The Elefant in the Room
Turn off anti-aliasing to ensure particle effects like lasers show up, and for better stability.
