X-Particles 3.5 Problem with particle paths and stops

Hi everyoneI'm using X-particles 3.5 and I have a small problem, maybe someone can help me?I would like to lead my particles along a path, like a road, and in a certain position tell the particles to stay, like in a traffic jam on a highway. with the help of a xp-speed Modifier.The problem: The particles hold still at the path, but they slowly leave the path. I need them to stay at the path. Exactly like in a traffic jam. The single particles are like cars, stuck in a traffic jam and after a while they should "drive" again on the "highway" or the path.It would be quite helpfull, if anyone had a solution for this. Here is my example. And thanks so far.


Here is the file

You can add a Change Speed Action in the xpFollowSpline in the tab "Actions at the End of Spline".
You might want to set the Speed in the Change Speed Action as absolute.
Is that what you're trying to achieve?

Thank you for your reply.
the particles are related to action, but you can select any falloff for the loss.
I want to do next. the particles should go on a spline and in a fieldfor example 2 cm in second 3 should because the particle will slow down, then in the second 5 should the particles which langs Ammer geworgen, go back quickly.
