Soft particles not fixed.

Postby lamefun » Wed Apr 08, 2015 3:22 am UTC

"For our renderer, we now have auto-softening for all sprites, so that all particles now take advantage of the soft particle feature without having to explicitly call it."

This is not fixed.

Look esp. at Lucifer explosion, the fire looks soft, but smoke and shockwave disortion doesn't (look at how it intersects the wall at far right).

It's possible that the release post considered the content of the sprites branch that was merged in the release to include auto softening while it was really about something different. gimhael?

Thanks for the report, we'll have to look into this.

Made an issue for it.
