Hello there I believe I downloaded a mod for this a long time back, but I don't think I installed it right and it never worked. Still, the files are hanging around in my KA2 install and I wanted to give them a go and see if the stock-type (i.e not red/green/blue/orange colored ones) look better than the explosion shockwave I use now. I think Achilles mentioned something to do with one of his screenies about having tried them and removed them ("looking like a fireworks show" I think the line was ;) ) so, Achilles if you could shed some light on how to do it :) Or anyone else for that matter, i just remembered Achilles in particular had mentioned it. Thanks
Well in the stock A2 there are different explosions for different ship SIZES, so i'd say yeah it's possible. Look in the odf files for a "fireball = " line... Not the individual ship files, but the ones they include (destroy.odf, battle.odf, etc)
no, I'd already mad erace specific explosions, I said I toned them down because they looked like a firework show ;)
it's pretty simple to set up, if you like I will send you my files and you can work from there.
ok, can you pm me your email address please, I will send them tomorrow morning now.

I tried to put race specific shockwaves once, really looked like a fireworks show LOL. When I played the game, I was like WTF, I couldnt even see my ships.
Theres also the NanoFX stuff but you need a decent graphix card to push them other wize most of it doesn't work and the rest looks like crap. But when its working the booms are somthing to behold.
Ah, you've hit it on the head again! Thats what theses weird sprite entries in my explosion.spr are. What are these NanoFXs and how can I get em to work?
Well to be honest mine just stared working when I got a new graphics card. I didn't do anything but install them. But I had the same problems with midnight univers before I got this card. What kind of card do you have?
Well I have a Radeon X800XT. It appears I had some advanced beta type form of these NanoFXs, as they are not just single generic effects like the one downloadable from A2 Files, but they are race specific ones. Either way, I now have Sherman2s NanoFXs working, with a few small tweaks of my own. Turns out he even used one of the KA sound effects for one of the explosions so I went with that for mid-sized ships.
