Ok so i thought when a beam struggle happens it gives off this cool glow thing when it first hits and kinda illuminates the area around it

This pic kinda shows what Im talking about. THis would only happen when the beams first hit.

Edit: Here is another picture that works better.


Edit: OK and it would be freaking awesome if beams had starter sprites like this.

KidBoy17, do it yourself with the FX system, and report to us, saying how much lag and fps drop you felt when it happened

P.S. why do people keep suggesting stuff from Budokai series? Budokai is a beat em up game, ESF isnt quite the same, its more of an action game in 3D instead of side scrolling

instead of the flash going through the whole map, it could just do that at a smaller area

with the flash going throo the whole map i ment that its visable from evrywhere. And if youd look at it youre FPS would drop so much that youd have a problem.

I suggest stuff from Budokai thats graphics wise. I don't think I have yet to suggest Overdrive or Dragon Rush. And when 1.3 is released I will try to make this. Im sure it wouldn't drop ym fps too much seeing as how its based on how good your system is.

this is the error you made

Shure the system plays a big role but you cant ignore the capabilities of the HL engine. If they are exeded than no system in the world can help you.

AH! Well I thank you for correcting me. And having it in a small area would be the better idea.
