Tyre Effects Readme

SFX\TYRE EFFECTS README.TXT is a readme that describes how to implement the tyre effects.

The format of the TyreEffects.txt must be as follows

[SUBSTANCE]
Substance_Name
Kickup_CNT_Name
Smoke_CNT_Name
Skidmark_Colour


Where:

[SUBSTANCE] - Tells the game that a substance is about to begin

Subtance_Name - is the name of the substance (the same as in the acolyte materials box)

Kickup_CNT_Name - is the name of the CNT file containing the kickup particle emitter (without the .CNT on the end), If there is no kickup emitter for this substance thne this must be "NoKickupEmitter" (without quotes)

Smoke_CNT_Name - is the name of the CNT file containing the kickup particle emitter (without the .CNT on the end), If there is no smoke emitter for this substance thne this must be "NoSmokeEmitter" (without quotes)

Skidmark_Colour - is the comma seperated (R,G,B,A) values of the skidmarks colour, if this is line reads "DefaultSkidColour" instead of a colour, the default skidmark colour of (0,0,0,64) is used, another value that is acceptable is "RainbowSkidColour", if this is specified as the colour the skidmark cycles through a series of colours.

**** IMPORTANT ****

NONE OF THE LINES CAN BE MISSED OUT, IF THEY ARNT ALL PRESENT THEN THE RESULTS ARE UNDEFINED. YOU CAN HOWEVER NOT INCLUDE A SUBSTANCE AT ALL IF YOU WANT IT TO BEHAVE IN THE DEFAULT WAY.
