Question ThinkingParticles Matterwaves

Hi everyone - I'm totally new here but thought that I might give it a shoot!

i'm trying to work with ThinkingParticles (3DSM plugin) and I can't figure out some problems with matterwaves - I can get matterwaves to emit from a standard shape like a sphere that has been converted into an editable poly - but when I switch the emitter object from the sphere to the body of a character I created (also editable poly) I can get the new object to emit. I feel like i've tried just about everything - no particles. It seems that TP just rejects/won't recognize the new mesh?

Any help would be GREATLY appreciated because I'm on the verge of becoming bald I've been ripping out so much hair!

Ive got a ton of tutorials on my site, if u have any suggestions let me know
but it sounds like u have to scroll down mw and then click off "coordinates" and turn up your UV density in the same section
