You probably have the wrong *.TGA files for those effects.

If you have more effect packs try the other efects their *.TGA files and see what that gives.

 

My best regards, Kodiak.

okay, I thought at first this was going to be fixed in the update for the "SF2_Reloaded_mod1.12".

But, it didn't work.

 

Although I'm generally impressed with the whole of the collected SF2 Reloaded Mod 1.2, there seems to be this one file thats giving me trouble.

I'm still unable to nail down the specific file(s) I need to correct.

I'm running a moded SF2 install.

Here's the readme regarding effects from "SF2_Reloaded_Mod1.12"

--------------------------------------------------------

"+++ Effects +++

- Unified Effects Pack 1.1 by Stary

- Ground Effects Collection by SF

- High res Waternormal.bmp by Paladrian (a.k.a. Mago)

--------------------------------------------------------

Here's a screen I've taken today...

You are using another mod(s) as I see, so maybe there is some conflict...

 

Try to download and install Stary's mods:

 

- Unified Effects pack 1.0

http://combatace.com/files/file/11802-unified-effects-pack-10/

- Unified Effects Pack update 1.1

http://combatace.com/files/file/11985-unified-effects-pack-update-1/

 

I hope this helps.

 

Érc

"Effects mod Update for SF2 I don't understand the words coming out of your mouth..."

Is this an offense against me?

 

 

Mondhatnám magyarul is de nem hiszem, hogy megértenéd, ezért próbáltam meg angolul leírni amennyire tudtam, hogy Te is értsd!

 

 

Értékelhetnéd! ;)

Hey! come on I barely understand English!

No, it's just to say that it's a technial referance that I don't understand.

I think, if I did, it might help.

I've reloaded Stary's 1.0 and update 1.11. from scratch.

no effect.

So, what other packs have I loaded, I don't think any. but then again, there's been so much modding with this SF2 install.

 

The blocks appear right after an AC explodes with either guns or missles.

and only on AC, not other targets.

is there an INI that can tell me which tga files to look at?

 

Thanks to everyone.

Well its a shot in the dark, but you can try to look at the followings and see that you have all the .tga files listed in them, each should be in your Effect folder in your mods directory.

 

AircraftEngineFireEffect.ini

AircraftExplosionEffect.ini

AIRCRAFTFIREEFFECT.INI

 

Other than that can be also driver issue as EricJ suggested.

Thanks logan, I'll take a look.

I have recently updated my drivers.

I removed the effects updates and everything works well with the default.

I'd rather re-enable the effects and figure out which tga is the culpret.

Sorry then I misunderstood you.

 

Did you try deleting your whole mod directory and building from the scratch?

1) delete your mod dir

2) run the game then exit

3) install the mod(s) (some mods are interfere each others be careful)

 

Sorry pal, I am not a real modder only an amateur. :/

And my english is crap I know but I am trying. :D

Happy to help, even if it is limited.

An advice before you go too deep. Always keep a back-up effect folder that you know works.

Also if an .ini file ask for overwrite sometimes good to rename the targetfile if you forgot to make a back up, that way you can revert quickly to your likeing.

Good hunting!

Erik, logan,

 

All good ideas. No problem Erik, I understand completely.

 

Right now I'm at the default Effects.

I'll let you know what happens.

Does Stary's effects require another of the SF versions? I'm running the Basic SF2 with no expansions or merges.
