       The IsBorn function in the TP_MASTERSYSTEM functions seems to only return true when a particle is first created starting from MinTIme. The PAge TP Node seems to correctly return true when the particle is reborn where the IsBorn function does not. How do I correctly find out if a particle has been born ( or reborn ) correctly using the particle information available from TP_MASTER_SYSTEM?

    Could you send a scene that shows the correct behavior (of PAge) that you want to get with IsBorn()? I don't know enough TP to recreate this. (For example, what is a reborn particle?)
    Just a guess: perhaps it's possible to deduce this from for example Age() or Life().
    Once I've been able to reproduce the discrepancy between PAge::Born and TP_MASTERSYSTEM::IsBorn(), I'll see if I can find out how the former is implemented.

    It seems to work correctly now, I am not sure why it was acting funky. My question now would be how to retrieve a collision event ( not actually reevaluate it ) to be used as a trigger. Any inof would be very helpful!
