2.45.15 static particles????

Hello there I am busy doing a nice green lawn… and in version 2.45 there was an option within the particles tab that said [static] I cant seem to make grass any more with the newer version of blender… can anyone help me with this… I have discovered some nice new tools but Im still unable to make grass with the newer version… the closest I got was doing hair but the strands Material does not seem to work here… or I am missing someting… which is most likely possible…

Thank you

The particle system has been completely rewritten, so things are a bit different,
set the “Type” (menu) to “Hair”,
