Quoted from reference..
the steps are:

- in light settings, use shadow map or raytrace shadows
- in light settings, under "shadow parameters" check "atmossphere shadows"
- in ffx under "illumination" tab, add the light to the light list .
- in ffx under "illumination" tab, (optional) check illumination map, to decrease render time
- in ffx under "rendering" tab, check cast AND recieve shadows on the smoke shader (the same for fuel if needed)

that should be it. u dont need to add all objects that could recieve shadows to the ffx objects list.
