Green Sparks!

  • 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-)

    *Edit: Crossed out video card, turns out it's universal!

  • 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.
