Sets the horizontal and vertical scaling of the particle type.


part_type_scale(ind, xscale, yscale);

Argument Description
ind The index of the particle type to change.
xscale The horizontal scaling of the base particle.
yscale The vertical scaling of the base particle.

Returns: N/A


This function will set the horizontal and vertical scale of the particle before any other size changes are made. This function works on the ratio of the sprite size, so a value of 1 (the default value) is a 1:1 ratio, meaning that 0.5 would be half and 2 double.


part_type_shape(particle1, pt_shape_flare);
part_type_size(particle1, 2, 2, 0.10, 1);
part_type_scale(particle1, 8, 0.50);
part_type_colour3(particle1, 8388608, 4227327, 8454143);
part_type_alpha3(particle1, 0.10, 0.10, 0);
part_type_speed(particle1, 0, 1, 0.18, 20);
part_type_direction(particle1, 0, 359, 0, 0);
part_type_orientation(particle1, 0, 0, 0, 0, 1);
part_type_blend(particle1, 1);
part_type_life(particle1, 10, 40);

The above code will set various particle values including the scale which sets the xscale to eight times the size and the yscale to half the size.
