Unusual Effects So Broken they're funny.
In reality, I'd love for you to fix these. Until then, however, we'll just get a nice kick.

Stormy Storm/Stormy 13th Hour (AKA That's not how rain works)
For some reason, the rain in the stormy effects appears ABOVE the cloud. Thankfully the rest of the effect is fine but, just, HOW?

Orbiting Planets (AKA Gravity Dun Fucked Up):
The planets orbit OUSTIDE of their orbits at incredible (sometimes accelerating) speeds.

(Eerie/not) Orbiting Fire (AKA What orbiting fire should actually look like)
The (eerie or not) fire orbits so fast that it forms a cool halo around the user.
Some people are talking about "updated fire" which looks more vivid, so this might be what orbiting fire used to look like. Regardless though, don't change it. It just looks too cool.

Hellfire/Darkblaze/Demonflame (AKA Satan's not feeling it)
By default, these effects will spit out 2 fireballs at once, thus making it look really half-baked. There is a fix: select one of the sister/recolor effects and switch back. Then the fireballs will be rapid. However this will reset if you switch class or switch to a different effect. Just watch out for this if you're testing these effects.

Bonzo the all-gnawing (AKA Bonzo the all-gnibbling)
Sometimes I get it to work (or fail, rather), sometimes not. I haven't figured out the rule yet. However, on some occasions, bonzo will just stay tiny in the middle of the gas cloud and occasionally do the spit thing, the spit being full sized. It really is hilarious and if you can figure out the pattern, please say so below.

Abduction (AKA Cow-Stealing Beam Malfunction)
This is the least noticeable of all the effect failures, but it still is weird. Like stormy storm, the lines often extend way too far, down onto your mercenary of choice.

And I've saved the best one for last:

Death By Disco (AKA Disco Fever Seizure)
What makes this effect so hillarious is that the disco lights, the lights on the ground, the ball, EVERYTHING is fine in this effect except for the skeletons. They, on the other hand, have apparently suffered a seizure thanks to disco as they can be found, on the floor, spasming out. It really is beautiful.

Hello, thanks for your post.

Stormy Storm/Stormy 13th Hour: this is how they look like for me :
http://steamcommunity.com/sharedfiles/filedetails/?id=763508979
http://steamcommunity.com/sharedfiles/filedetails/?id=763508690

Orbiting Planets: yeah i know they are fucked up. This is by far the most complex effect.

Orbiting Fire: Yeah i know it rotate too fast. But if I fix it, i broke something else.

Hellfire/Darkblaze/Demonflame: I don't get it. What is the issue here ?


Bonzo:

Abduction: the main issue here in my opinion is that the effect should be always pointing up, not following ht e head orientation.

Death By Disco: this is known but never found how to fix it.

As for hellfire and the others, unless you select a sister effect it pops out 2 fireballs at a time instead of a constant stream. If this doesn't happen with you, then I guess it's a system problem on my end.

1 more I found:
Chiropetra Venenata/Poisoned Shadows/Something Burning this way comes (AKA Batty go Bye Bye)
Unless you select a sister effect and switch back, the bat will spawn way outside your head and start spinning around your merc. Again, it might just be local, but for me, it's pretty funny.

On http://whatsnext.loadout.tf/ I fixed some effects:

Abduction now has a better look
Rainy effect work properly on slow hardware.
Death by disco now works properly.

I will push this on the main site in few days.
