Right, so as some of you know I'm making a one winged jetpack mod. And someone had the brilliant idea of having an effect so feathers fall from the wing instead of the lame smoke and fire jetpack effects. So I wrote an effect file, and it works perfectly! except for two rather large odd problems. The first being that you can see the feathers through walls. People. Rancors. You get the picture. The second is that it makes the feathers all black, when the image I'm using is infact NOT all black. (atleast it has a bit of contrast with some grey) Anyway, I'll just post the coding and if someone wouldn't mind taking a look at it, that'd be great. repeatDelay 1900

Um... EffectsEd is your friend, you know. Use it. To me, it's a lot easier than doing it by hand.
