I'm busy with university stuff, and college seems to be a motivational roadblock for some reason. I intended mostly to make a prototype, or at least make it work. And well... it works! I'll have to add a player model in the future.

Video of the base pack would wait until at least Saturday, and it's not really much to show. Simple dev textures (like, 128x128), fire particle, a skybox and a level that mixes them. It's not really a visual pack, it rather focuses on functionality - you've got entity defs right there, with everything set up for you to make assets.

What I'll do is make some beginner level tutorials for working with the engine once I'll have more time.

Letting those files simply rot on my hard drive would be pointless, even if no one is going to use it.

Sound like you aren't going to make a standalone game using the engine.

Btw, you should make a youtube video showing what your base pack looks like in action.

I hastily made some simple assets, defs, materials and a basic level to create a quickstart base for anyone willing to try Storm Engine 2. It lacks a player model, but there's a workaround I described in it's readme. Letting those files simply rot on my hard drive would be pointless, even if no one is going to use it.

I already know where the flashlight stuff is. The flash when demons spawn is unrelated.

I thought "light flash" was "flash light."  My bad.  :)  Sorry!

Got it. Traced it back through the telebolt particle effect. This is referenced in teleporter.fx and 4 other fx files, which then references the squareblast light.

Next mystery to solve is where the color for the HUD doodles of all the weapons is (the icon that shows up when you pick up a new weapon.) They're shown in a greenish/cyan color but having gone through the GUIs that belong to the HUD for both single player and multiplayer, I haven't run across it yet. I changed the HUD colors and these need to change as well. I wish I knew the color as the float values the game uses as that would lead me right to it as I've replaced everything else that is that color. They're white and then colored by the game, likely in a GUI I haven't touched with a name that doesn't make this obvious.

Yes I keep a copy of the game extracted for the same reason along with a folder of just assets that are useful for text searches.

I actuatly keep  already extracted def/material files handy just to do searches.  :)

So after searching in the weapon_flashlight.def, it says the "mtr_flashshader" is "lights/flashlight5".  That's defined in the same .def file.

That references a file in "lights/flashlight5.tga".  That's in pak000.pk4.

I kind of suspected this. It's a single detail that I need to follow the breadcrumbs to the source. I thought it would start in a def or material or particle and then trace it to one of the others. I search through all of the game's files a lot looking for a string somewhere that I think might be relevant in the hopes that it will reveal enough to track it down the rest of the way. Generally colors defined in defs are for muzzle flashes or a flash of some color for when someone uses their attack... It's not going to be in the weapon_ defs or the map_ defs.... Crap.

The flash light is defined with a material.  It uses a graphic for it's color & pattern it uses.   I forget where it is, but find the material it calls in the def, then you'll find the file it uses.
