    it's possible to make the effects cause damage?

    Asked this a few months back and haven't noticed a response - Any ideas?

    Just add the damage to the code you're running. There's an example that does exactly that in the main post.

    I am working on a new idea, LightSabers (Made of flame particles) that can cut through some blocks (glass)

    The only thing is, I do not have time to do this all the time, but I can do the math for it, and give it to the community. I think this is a VERY good idea, and I want to help out!
    (EG: You right click a stick and flame particles appear as a lightsaber, and when you swing... You get the point, it is like a lightsaber!)

    How can i change the color of my particle effects?
    I tried using color atribute, but nothing happened.

    Well, did you create your own effect or you're using an effect that comes with the plugin?
    Could you send the code? Would be way easier to help with that :)

    Code:
    EffectLib lib = EffectLib.instance();
    EffectManager effectManager = new EffectManager(lib);
    AnimatedBallEffect efeito = new AnimatedBallEffect(effectManager);
    efeito.setEntity(zom);
    //efeito.particle = de.slikey.effectlib.util.ParticleEffect.FIREWORKS_SPARK;
    efeito.start();
    //efeito.color = Color.GREEN;
    efeito.color = Color.fromBGR(5, 100, 220);
    efeito.infinite();
    
    sorry for being slow to respond.

    The color effect only works with the particles MOB_SPELL, MOB_SPELL_AMBIENT and RED_DUST (Redstone).
    That is something that cannot be changed by us.

    Can I have the code so when you right click a diamond axe it will launch a helix

    You could listen to PlayerInteractEvent, check the item in hand, and see if the action is a right-click. Then, if it is, you create the effect in front of the player :)
    (I prefer to tell you how to do instead of giving you the code, because with the code you won't learn anything :p)

    So, how would I actually use this? Sorry if I'm a big noob here, but some help would be appreciated!

    Wait so after the right click event, what do I do?

    This is my code

    Code:
    private EffectManager effectManager;
     
        @Override
        public void onEnable() {
            Bukkit.getPluginManager().registerEvents(this, this);
            EffectLib lib = EffectLib.instance();
            effectManager = new EffectManager(lib);
        }
     
        @Override
        public void onDisable() {
            effectManager.dispose();
            HandlerList.unregisterAll((Listener) this);
        }
     
       
    @EventHandler
        public void onPlayerInteract(final PlayerInteractEvent event) {
            Player player = event.getPlayer();
            Location loc = player.getLocation();
            ConeLocationEffect cone = new ConeLocationEffect(effectManager, (Location) event.getPlayer());
            if(event.getAction() == Action.RIGHT_CLICK_AIR) return;
            if(event.getItem().getType() == Material.STICK) return;
            effectManager.start(cone);
            cone.iterations = 8*12;
            cone.speed = 2;
       
           
    
             }
       
    }
    
    It isn't working in game

    You're returning the method when they right click with a stick. Change the return to {
    and then after the cone.speed = 2; add }}
    (Of course, fix your formatting after adding that... :p)
    Then, when a player right clicks air with a stick, it will create the cone effect.
    Also, you should create the cone object after the if statement, to avoid creating objects that you won't need.

    You can't cast player to a location. Do event.getPlayer().getLocation() instead, and remove the (Location) in this line:
    Code:
    ConeLocationEffect cone = new ConeLocationEffect(effectManager, (Location) event.getPlayer());

    I am trying to make it now so that when you do /helix it will do a little helix around your body.
    code:
    Code:
    package me.capz.pluigin;
    
    import org.bukkit.command.Command;
    import org.bukkit.command.CommandSender;
    import org.bukkit.entity.Player;
    import org.bukkit.plugin.java.JavaPlugin;
    
    import de.slikey.effectlib.EffectLib;
    import de.slikey.effectlib.EffectManager;
    import de.slikey.effectlib.effect.HelixEffect;
    import de.slikey.effectlib.util.ParticleEffect;
    
    public class Main extends JavaPlugin {
       
    private EffectManager effectManager;
        public void onEnable() {
             EffectLib lib = EffectLib.instance();
               effectManager = new EffectManager(lib);
        }
       
        public boolean onCommand(CommandSender sender,Command cmd, String commandLabel, String[] args) {
            Player player = (Player)sender;
            HelixEffect helix = new HelixEffect(effectManager);
            if(cmd.getName().equalsIgnoreCase("helix")) {
                if(sender.hasPermission("helix.use")) {
                    helix.iterations = 10;
                    helix.particle.equals(ParticleEffect.FLAME);
                    helix.period = 20;
                    helix.start();
                }
            }
            return true;
        }
       
    }

    You didn't implement CommandExecutor in your class, and you didn't register the command in your onEnable()...

    #equals is a comparison method, not a setter.

    Hello,

    I want to create a TextEffect. Here's my code:

    Code:
    Player p = (Player) event.getEntity().getShooter();
                        Location location = a.getLocation();
                        TextEffect text = new TextEffect(main.em);
                        text.setLocation(location);
                        text.particle = de.slikey.effectlib.util.ParticleEffect.FLAME;
                        text.period = 1;
                        text.setTarget(p.getLocation());
                        text.visibleRange = 50F;
                        text.autoOrient = true;
                        text.text = "MyServer";
                        text.setTargetEntity(p);
                        text.start();
    'a' is an arrow projectile. The code is executed when an arrow hits a block. The problem is that the generated particle text is always rotated by 180° so I can't read it correct... Did I do something wrong?

    Thanks for your anwers and best regards!

    Correct me if I'm wrong, but using Particle Utils is far more server intensive than using PacketPlayOutWorldParticles. Since particleUtils uses reflection, it is a lot slower. Based on my testing (Spawning 500 particles per tick, for 10 seconds) with timings, the result between using particle utils vs packetplayout is ten fold. It dropped a spell that when fired 20 times a second, using 3% percent of server usage per player sent to, it was reduced to around 0.5%. While it is not version safe, I feel that writing a wrapper that you have to recode maybe every 6-8 months, for 6-10 times better performance, is totally worth it.

    hello i add EffectLib to my project (http://i.dekros.ovh/2015-10/20-10-15_21-54-07.png) and i make this:
    Code:
    
           
            TextEffect text = new TextEffect(PvPCage.getEffectManager());
            text.text = "ONE TO FREE TESTTTT";
            text.particle.equals(ParticleEffect.FLAME);
            text.duration = 100;
            text.period = 20;
            text.run();
    
    but how to change location?
    i can't use text.setLocation;/
