Hi! lately i fully complete an player with animations, So now i wanted to add "effects" to it like dust when he jump. I made it with particles2d but the problem is that sometimes it doesn't emit the "dust". I notice that its something with life_time because when i set it to 0.1 its working well.

Here's some information about particle and player script i use.


Lifetime = 0,4
shot = on
Explosivenes = 1
Local Coords = false
and other options like color, scale but i don't think it matters.

Player script:

if Input.is_action_just_pressed("Jump"):
    $Jumpeffect.emitting = true

Hi, I tried the same way and I had the same problem, look at the documentation in the editor and particles has a restart method, this method works instantly but removes any previous particles.

if Input.is_action_just_pressed("Jump"):
