I keep getting particles on my screen, but only in DM.

These white particles are spawning in for NO reason all over my screen, around my character, even while chasecaming, but the effect only surrounds the character. This only happens in DM. I would prefer NOT to nuke my ini.

My INI:
gzdoom_portable.ini

I suspect what you're seeing is the effect of cl_respawninvuleffect - set that to 0 and it should go away.

Unknown command cl_respawninvuleffect
Keep in mind I originally copy pasted my config from Zandronum (Yes, IK this is a very bad idea).

Then, I'm sorry, but you will probably need to start a new INI file. I can't figure out what other setting it could be.

So be it...

(This is what I get for being lazy AF, well deserved.)

Edit: Even after trashing my INI and starting over, I STILL get those goddamn particles, just less noticeable. Maybe cuz i did it on my Linux laptop...


2nd edit: goes away on windows laptop... (i tested by doing "map map01 dm", but on my linux laptop i used the alias called "solodm", maybe my dmflags are screwing it?) [even without nuking my ini, i think it's something else]. 3rd edit: AHAHA! it was the broken respawn protection setting which doesnt protect you!
