Half-Life 2 Muzzle Flashes in SFM.
Well, I'm going to be making a lot of Half-Life 2 Machinimas in Source Filmmaker now that I've learnt it pretty well (not TF2 stuff), but for some action scenes I need some good muzzle flash particles. I have looked through the /game/hl2/particles folder and found nothing to do with muzzle flashes, yet I have seen videos with them in. The particles/sprites have got to be somewhere, I just can't find them along with quite a few others.

Half-Life 2 was before Source had non-hardcoded particles. Episode 2 introduced the particle system SFM uses, so check that game's VPKs.

Exactly as 6000 Angry Bees says, I believe that HalfLife2 depended more on a sprite system than a particle system. SFM only include the base particles used by HL2 and they are actually pulled out of the HL2 Deathmatch Packs. If you want more HL2 Particles, you have to pull them out of the C:\Program Files (x86)\Steam\SteamApps\common\Half-Life 2\ep2 VPK files yourself.
