To add the Particle Manager slice

  1. In the Asset Browser, navigate to Game\slices.

  2. Drag particle_manager.slice into the viewport.

  3. Press Ctrl+S to save your level.

  4. Press Ctrl+G to play your level.

    Shoot at the walls and at your sentries. Notice how weapon fire and hit FX now appear.

  5. To quit, press Esc.
