Get mPartciles to have some spin

Is there some trick to get mParticles to spin ?

I have:

Birth Stream
Position Icon
Shape Instance (group of shape, use group members)
mP Shape Convex Hull
mP World
Display Geometry

By particles won't spin very fast at all,. I can get a tiny amount of spin, but very little. I tried upping substeps to no avail. I would like some particles to spin like 4 or 5 revolutions per second. I can't get more than about 1 rpm. (360 deg/sec). I tried spin values orders of magnitude greater than that.

2014 SP1.

Hey man, try to insert a mP Switch there and check the Spin inside it's properties.

This operators stop's using the position, speed or rotation of the mP World and keep the stuff you've inserted before.

Thanks for the reply.

This is what I needed. It seems the spin has no time to act before the mParticles physics take over. I used the switch to keep the spin for the first few frames of the particle age. This got them going and worked great.

Your correct, without an mP Switch it has exactly (Integration Step / numOperators) per step AFAIK.
