CEG Main Page


CEG stands for Custom Explosion Generator, a scripting language for creating graphical effects. These are most commonly used to draw a graphical effect when a weapon hits a target, but can also be called from COB and Lua.

Files Needed

The actual CEGs are defined in .tdf or .lua files in effects/ (preferred) or gamedata/explosions/ (old standard). You will also need a resources.lua in gamedata/ to define textures, as well as the actual textures in bitmaps/. Finally, you need the weapon, unit, COB, and or Lua files that you are calling the CEGs from.
