Hey guys; It’s been a while! I’ve taken a long break from C:MW and the forums, school has been really busy lately! But nonetheless, the new update (which brought my favorite weapon from AoC into the game) lured me out of my cave!
I don’t know if anybody remembers, but back in good ol’ alpha days, I had asked in-game about the sparks being green. Ever since I noticed it, it has always bugged me! It seems that there are two particle types that are emitted, one yellow and one green, I might be wrong though!
Does anybody else notice the green sparks?
It might just be my video card, so here’s a screenshot:
I would like to kindly thank Daeroth for being my assistant! 8-)

Those green sparks have always annoyed me as well. XD
Well that removes the graphics card theory! Also, It’s amazing how bad I got from not playing for a while… Before I could hold a 2:1 kdr, now only 1:1! :(
*edit: I totally agree with your sig Bob! (about the buckler)
It could be super realism. You don’t know what metals are involved when a sword hits another weapon. Some can produce green sparks.
True, but these common metals listed only white, red, orange, straw, and dark-red as spark colors:
I know copper burns green, but it’s non-ferrous so it shouldn’t spark… But I’m no chemist!

All shields in Chivalry are made from Agathium, which produces green sparks. Duh. What do you think they’re mining in Citadel?
facepalm I should have known! :P
Oh, I think thats just a mistake in normal/bump mapping the materials on the object.
