This utility is, in essence, a particle effect editor that allows you to edit
the 55 or so parameters associated with particle effects with a series of
dialogs, and see the results first hand in real time.

This comes in the form of an ingame single mission.  It's not a mission in the
true sense however.  The scripts inside are not meant to be imported into your
own mission and there is no enemy to fight.

It's goal is simply to let you manipulate particle effects to enable you, as an
addon maker or mission designer, to acheive the desired effect quickly, and use
the settings you came up with in your mission/addon/script/whatever.

Features:
     - Full manual.  It includes notes about the controls and how my utility handles them, where
     appropriate.  In addition, it includes information as to what the parameters
     actually do, and a tip here and there.  It is recommended that advanced
     scripters read this as well for information pertaining to the dialogs and how
     specific things are handled.

     - You manipulate the parameters of the particleParams, particleCircles,
     dropInterval, and particleRandom commands through a series of dialogs
     accessable through the action menu.

     - You can import and export code via a copy+paste functions.

     - You can edit up to 5 particle effects at the same time to enable you to
     more easilly manage more complex effects.

     -A version for both the intro island and Sahrani are included in order to
     minimise load times for the end user.

     -A very simple usage demo mission is included to help set people who are
     new to particle effects on the right path.
