Glitchy particle effect?


Missed a portal peek, and a sphere of red stars appeared in the goo beside me, disappearing after around 3 seconds. When I tried to play back the demo, the star effect didn’t show. Is this a known thing?



What the fuck was it if it didn’t play on the demo o.O

The demo, in case anyone’s interested, pulled straight out of the run in the video


That’s a placeholder error effect that usually happens when you are missing a particle effect file, not sure why it appeared here. Sorta like the violet/black error texture you can get sometimes when you alt-tab. It has no effect apart from the visual difference.
