Thinking Particles is driving me insane.

Hello people, I'm doing some first time digging with Thinking Particles and I've never managed to get something to work, not even when I follow tutorials to the spot.

Could someone please take a look at this scene and tell me what I'm missing and such?

Scene explanation: I want particles to be born and on a static position with pBorn and pSurfacePosition.

Scene below.

Thank you so much.

The max. particle count, in the TP settings is set to one. Increase this parameter.

Cheers, Cube

This is a bit awkward and obvious...a part of me is hoping you are wrong.

I'll take a look, thank you for responding.

Edit: Damn you were right!

For the shot modus, you better restrict the emission. Otherwise every single frame, 500 particles are spit out by the emitter.

Cheers, Cube

Ahh, yes. I did that in my original file but thank you for reminding me!

Thank you so much for the help!
