Particle Emitting Loading Screen

Submitted by The10th-X
This bundle is marked as approved. It works and satisfies the submission rules.
Here's a loading screen that uses particle emmitters for added effects, and yes this is my maps loading screen but it's the basic ver and i needed an example to show ^^

Video: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=FVsWbViN5nc

How To Use:
It's Rather simple Actually, there are 3 Textures used within this Loading screen:

1) The first Texture, BSLogo.blp is the texture for the title, just simply edit this BLP in any way and you can change the title that is emitted from the center of the screen

2) The Second one is the norm for any LS, Fullscreen.blp is the background so you can edit that as well

3)The third one is the one you can change optionally from the WC3 MPQ, i've used Flame4.blp from the WC3 MPQ to create the flames effect going across the screen, and to change this you have to import a different texture (There's a guide for that somewhere) and go to, in magos, Windows -> Node Manager and click "Cover Emmitter" and when a window opens change the "Texture ID" Box to your imported texture and Wala, done!

    This is really cool, and I've never seen anything like it. That being the case I think your should explain more about what it is and how people can use it to make their own loading screens. For example, can I change the background without losing the animated fog? Can I add my own title? I can probably figure these things out but many people might not be able to. Also, I'm not sure I want to figure it all out and waste my time finding out the answer is... nope what you see is what you get.

    + REP, this is about the coolest thing I've seen all week!!! Nice work!

    This is mildly interesting, I never knew it was possible until today. People who mod warcraft still surprise me, after all this time! :)
    I'll also +rep you, it seems it the least I can do for this nice surprise. I wonder why it has been never used before..perhaps it increases the loading time and overall file size of the map, however it looks beautiful.
    Edit: If I remember correctly, I've seen this similar effect in a DBZ map about 2 years ago.. nevermind though.

    the first was using multiple pictures .. but it would increase map size...
    nice thinking on making the LS using particles....

    Looks ugly, but this can be a great tool for us to do things most of us had never thought of, thank you very much!

    This is by far the most beautiful piece of shit I've ever come across, and I mean that as a compliment. Not that I've got any experience in judging manure for its quality.

    I can only imagine the sorts of epic loading screens people will create with the knowledge gained from opening this up. I can already see how it works, but I do think this should have a tutorial made, one to help newer people figure out how, and two just so people who are looking around the tutorial section can see something they probably hadn't done before.

    Well it was merely a way for others to create their own in the first place anyway xD
