As far as I know it is. I used particles from other games in CS:S before so it stands to reason that you should be able to make your own.

Sure it has man!

Do you own Half-Life 2 Episode 2 or Garry's Mod, just go into Steam right click the game go properties then "set launch options"

type in the box
Code: Select all
-tools -novid

Run the game and the particle editor should come up, i sugguest using this to create your .pcf file and then in hammer create an "info_particle_system" and also dont forget to add your custom particle to the "particles_mainfest.txt"

Take a look at this tutorial for how to create particles


Hope this helps
