Description

Add particle a single particle (short form) or several ones (long form) to this particle system.
Short form (single particle): `particles:addParticles(x,y,size,angle,ttl)`
Extended form: `particles:addParticles{particleDesc1,particleDesc2,...,particleDescN}` where particleDescX is a table describing a particle to be added. This table can contain the following parameters:

  • x,y: particle position
  • size: particle size
  • angle: particle orientation
  • color: particle color
  • alpha: particle alpha
  • ttl: time to leave, number of frames this particle will stay on screen
  • tag: tag associated with this particle
  • speedX,speedY,speedAngular,speedGrowth: Amount added to x,y,angle and size at the beginning of each frame
  • decay,decayAngular,decayGrowth,decayAlpha: factor applied to speedX and speedY, speedAngular, speedGrowth and alpha at the beginning of each frame
(number or table) = Particles:addParticles(particles)

'particles: (table or arguments) table for multiple particles or arguments for single '
Returns (number or table) index or table with indexes of added particles
