Using objects in place of particles.

I am wanting to make some grass. I followed a tutorial on how to make the particles be a specific object. So I created some grass then I made a grid and made the grass a child of the grid. I then went and started a new particle emitter from the grid and set up dubli verts so that the child of the grid(the grass) would be used…this worked once but the grass was all over so I just reloaded and tried again and changed the normals. Now it isn’t bringing up anything when I click the dublivert. Is there a step that I am missing in this process?

Well I found it out by just messing around…wish i could get some responses though :stuck_out_tongue:
