Is it possible to get an emitter to follow the path of a spline?

I did that but nothing happens. I can get the actual emitter to follow a path, what I was hoping for was a way to get the actual particles to follow the path of the spline without using espresso (I'm terrible with it!)

for that you need to use Thinking Particles (there's a preset in the Content Browser so you don't need to do the xpresso yourself)

4395_tpfollowspline.c4d.zip

or XParticles (3rd party plugin, not free) which can follow a spline too.
