Maratis Particle System

Particle system for the Maratis3D engine. http://maratis3d.com

This plugin should compile against the stock Maratis SDK, but also Maratis/MIngEd. For the latter, you can use the following to install MParticle. At this stage, there is no easy way to load a plugin in the standard Maratis SDK (it can be loaded manually) Also, any lua interface may be incompatible

Linux: MPlugin install MParticle.so MPlugin install-sys MParticleEditor.so

Windows: MPlugin install MParticle.dll MPlugin install-sys MParticleEditor.dll

OS X: MPlugin install MParticle.dylib MPlugin install-sys MParticleEditor.dylib
