Hi,

If you created 2 copy of MP_Manager then it is error. All emitters places in one array inside API.

How many objects of GsMagicParticles do you create simultaneously? You can create one object only.

what is the problem if i create multiple objects of GsMagicParticles ?

MP->LoadTextures(texture_folder,1024,1024,0,0.1f);
The atlases are created for ALL loaded emitters. Read API.chm->Magic_CreateAtlases.
You can make other way to load textures. You can get all information about textures from API.chm->MAGIC_TEXTURE.

I want to create multiple particles at the same time .... can please tell how can we create ...

Delete in my wrapper the line:
MP->Stop();
and ALL emitters will be shown simultaneously.

You can turn on/off any emitter with help MP_Emitter::SetState.

if i delete this line
Mp->Stop() ... it is crashing at.... this line

renderer->DrawIndexedVertices(TRenderer::kDrawTriangles, vertex_array, buffer.GetIndexArray(), k_particles*6);

I have deleted Mp->Stop() and all works well. You can delete the line in MY wrapper. If you deleted this line in your new code I can't know about result.

This is the class i created ( attached ) using same wrapper class,

please try to create object of this class in swarm class like following code

GsMagicParticles* _mouseOverParticles;

////in Init
_mouseOverParticles = new GsMagicParticles();
_mouseOverParticles->Init( "fire.ptc", TVec2( 0, 0 ), 2, GsMagicParticles::pause );
_mouseOverParticles->Play( true );

// Update
if( _mouseOverParticles ) _mouseOverParticles->Update();

//Draw
if( _mouseOverParticles ) _mouseOverParticles->Draw();




please try to fix this problem

I am sorry, but I have own work and can't find your errors. The wrapper works well, if you decide to improve wrapper then you have to find your errors yourself.
