i know lightwave can display opengl sprites in layout, but i can't seem to get it to show any color but black. all my display options are turned on and i have particlestorm color checked as well as show particles, and i am using sprites:shrug:

Umm...this may be a dumb question, but are the images in color that you're using as sprites?

ya it's one of the fire presets, in a viper preview there's lots of color but in the cameras veiw in layout it's just black...i changed the color to a bright blue and no change. maybe it's my video card a ati 8500 128meg..... has some funny problems with lightwave...for instance texture shade veiw in modeller is useless, the poly's are transparent from most angles, i have to use wireframe shade.

not sure if this would cause the prob but have you checked your alpha channel settings both in the image editor and the HV panels?
