This effect is useless. You can't see jack shit.

How do I get rid of it? Is it a shader thing? My settings are maxed out.

I want to get rid of the smoke without lowering any other settings.

It's 4.0 related. The bright white smoke is much worst than it was in 3.4.4 but TT team thinks there's nothing wrong despite many of us complaining how much brighter the white smoke got.

My god. So they can the scrolling minimap and building bar health, and then BLIND people with suffocating gas clouds....

Something is wrong.

So to get rid of the stupid smoke, I have to get rid of 4.0?

The white smoke is unbearable. If anyone succeeds in reducing the intensity please post Smile

Looks the same to me. Find a particle system that differs between the game and w3dviewer, then we'll look at it.

If tt didn't block all w3d files I could of made the emitter a lot smaller, but yeah I agree it is bad and so annoying.

You make this out to be very unilateral. If it annoys you, make a smaller emitter, release it, and get server owners to add it their approved file list. Problem solved.

or just make a DDS transparent and the smoke will become invisible.

Is e_master01.dds the correct file to edit?

If not does anyone know which dds/w3d files are used to create the white smoke? ** EDIT ** I'm guessing it is e_fiery_smoke ? are there any other files connected?


Thumbs Up

e_master is the one you can modify for the smoke/burning/missle effects.

Not entirely sure what the other fiery ones do, whenever I modified them in the past they didn't do jack, only e_master did

The white smoke from the Mammoth is the most annoying which wasn't there before.

It shows up even if you set the graphics to the lowest setting.

Hopes someone can make a smaller emitter if it is too difficult for TT to change it.
