Two particle effects to one mesh

I have assinged two particle effects to one mesh. The second effect is excatly like the first, only it begins after the first effect, to simulate two short bursts. Why will the effect only work once and not twice? I am using blender 2.37a.

Why will the effect only work once and not twice

How sure are you of this? As far as I know the second one won’t work at all (press Static to verify), only 2 different effects work, like 1 particle and 1 wave or 1 wave and 1 build.

Hey Fligh,
Do you do this stuff for a living? I have not seen anyone stump you yet, and your answers are always right on target.
