May I ask you to provide me with that test setup (map + particle) of yours? I know it's not too complicated, but it might save me some work.

Sure, will do that in next day or two. Or, you can recreate it yourself, here's the particle setup:

/*

}



The texture image: https://s9.postimg.cc/5850fib1r/obraz.png

(The image had to be rotated like that, as it the flame couldn't be positioned straight up. That might also be worth checking, but I checked stock TDM flame textures, and they use similar setup.)



And finally the material definition:

textures/do/fx/candle_flame01
{
translucent
noshadows
twosided
sort 20

{
blend add
map textures/do/fx/candle_flame01
}

}
