explosion animation in the game engine

Hey Blender Artists, I would like to know how to create an explosion animation with the game engine, specifically, the one I had just uploaded onto this thread. I would like to know, first of all, how to model this explosion, not with a plane, but with something else. I would also lilke to know how to animate this, so I would be able to play this in the game engine. I am open to any suggestions. Thanks:)


lots of planes with textures/Ipos see the particle tutorialhow to do that.

You have to setup the path the emitters have to go, plus the animations the particles should perform. You can combine different types of particles (see smoke and flame particles).
