I was going to put this in how do i, but i realized its not a how do i question:
do particle effects lag less than sprites?
because quite frankly I find them troublesome, and almost useless, they have 1 frame so you cant randomize animations ( hello people! its a particle effect, the whole point is to be random!)
and secondly, you cant even control it correctly, it has all of these stats/settings and I cant even tell it to move, slow down, stop, and then fade, I find it easier to make my own ''particle effects'' with sprites,
they also seem to come out over time instead of all at once, i dont see an option to change this anyway, it takes a good second to shoot out 8 particle effects instead of just all at once.
(no im not talking about single shot or continuous spray)
i mean the rate at which they come out
so to the question do particle effects lag significantly less than sprites?
if not id rather customize my own particle effects using sprites =/
