nParticles stops emitting after frame 50
I have an emitter shooting out particles but it stops around frame 50. Any reason why? I can't find where time would be associated to the emitter?
Thanks for reading!

Select the pasted_nParticle1 from the outliner.
Scroll down to object display and turn off the checkbox for intermediate object.
You'll see that the nParticles become visible and that they are still emitting.
But after frame 50, the settings under the Output Mesh no longer work or gradually stop working because (from what I think) as more particles are born and as they keep falling down with gravity, the particle object becomes bigger and bigger. And so, quickly the existing Max Triangle Resolution of 100 is not enough to produce enough polygons to mesh an "ever increasing in size" particle object. Raise it to 400 or 500 and the problem will be fixed. You may need to increase it more if the mesh starts to "loose" polygons and starts disappearing again.
