umm... FX stands for Special Effects I believe, and for BFME (and in this forum) it stands for the special effects that you can do in-game... istari light is an FX, the glow of leadership is an FX, anything that glows or lights up is probably an FX... so this forum probably just has to do with the "how to's" of modding those glows... (I'm not entirely sure because I don't visit this sub-forum much)

So no tutorials...just Q/A

Well, the BFME particle FX subforum was set up to ask question on FX and hoping we could compile enuff info for a tutorial. FX are VERY powerful and neccessary for any decent mod.

Wether it's Galdalfs Word of Power shockwave, or Saruman's Wizard blast, it will make or break a new power or upgrades coolness factor.

Not at all, the FXlist.ini, particleFX, and system FX are the files where they are coded. They can use models or just image files to create them.

Either I've gone blind, or am completely misunderstanding you. Where's this Particle FX subforum?
