I am trying to control the speed of the particles that I have set up with a Curve guide. I have changed the settings for Drag and Damp along with Timestep and none of these affect the speed. Also I have tried every setting in the Velocity drop down under particle systems and also no luck.

What else could I try to slow down these particles?


For slower particle speed change the lifetime of the particle to a larger value.
