Effects Creator
Effects Creator is a program I made to help make particle effects in my games. Its easy to use and exports the particles you made into scripts. You can take these scripts, load them into your game, and then use them whenever you want. More info on how to do this can be found in the read me.

Want to see one of your particle effects in Effects Creator? Here are the requirements for the effects-
-No outside variables
-All code inside 1 script(except for particle system functions)


Target platforms:



Effects are quite easy to do, requiring only a few drag and drop actions... Particles are slightly harder, but seeing as this doesn't deal with particles, only effects, I thought it had little use. I did design a program with almost exact concept as this, except using particles, not effects; You can find it http://64digits.com/games/index.php?cmd=view_game&id=552

I didnt use effects, if you export the scripts you see that all the things in there are particles. I only duplicated effects with particles to give them more cutsomizability. I always hated using an effect and only haveing 3 size choices.

Besides, not everyone is a particle master like you Rhys. Most people, imcluding me, find particles hard to use and understand. This is just a tool to help the creation of particles, not just effect_create_ stuff.

Oh and thanks for accepting this.

I like to use custom sprites in my particles, but this is a decent way to help people who are new to particles get into things.

If it uses particles that's a lot better *edited my rating to 6 instead of 3*, Although in which case it's much more like a limited version of my Part-Art (Which, btw FF, supports sprite importin)... Yet, It's still good as you're using it for yourself, great to program things for yourself i do it all the time.

I thought it was a good program, considering I'm new at effects (having just Registered GM this morning), so I find it of great use. Good job, very well done.
