Accessing spell effects

This may be a trivial question but I've been scouring around the forums for a while without any luck. I'm using Datedit to mod and I want to change certain spell properties. I notice that the property which determines the spell effect of projectile spells in Datedit is the explosion property in the weapons tab. What would I need to do to access this property?

For example, I would like to access the explosion properties for the spell Ensnare. I would like to change the spell duration time and the amount by which a unit's speed is decreased. Is this possible to do, and if so how would I be able to change those properties?



None.

D.A.D

I don't think properties like those are actually editable using DatEdit. Try using a FireGraft .exe edit. If it's not listed there, it's possible that you'll need to mess with it via a plugin.

ALL PRAISE YOUR SUPREME LORD CORBO

Maybe there's some FG edits for it that I don't recall at the moment, otherwise it's very doable via plug-in.

Some properties are accessible in Firegraft, but not others. Which plug-ins are you referring to specifically?

Edit: All good I found Corbo's topic after searching for a while.

Pr0nogo -- hm, since you coded pytile and wrote its error handling, maybe you know the problem i'm having?
[08:44 pm]
poiuy_qwert -- If you need some help getting the program running you can PM me with any details you have
[08:43 pm]
poiuy_qwert -- It should error out if it doesn't like the files, but there are lots of ways to "corrupt" the file while having it still look fine
[08:43 pm]
Pr0nogo -- the program won't even start for me so i can't even begin to take your advice :P
[08:43 pm]
poiuy_qwert -- I think the main thing is you don't want to edit an existing tileset with PyTILE, you want to export the tileset entirely, edit the exported data, and create a "new" tileset from that. but its been a while, so i'm not even sure anymore
[08:42 pm]
Pr0nogo -- i just want to see if tileedit is the source of my problems or if it's something else, would pytile be able to detect incorrect formats? (wrong palette/image size/color index)?

poiuy_qwert -- Pr0nogo
Pr0nogo shouted: hey poiuy, any chance you can take a look at pytiles? i'm doing a lot of tileset editing and tileedit is failing me (can't run tileedit 2/hawt tiles and the latest version of pytiles won't start for me)
PyTILE has a lot of architectural problems that make me not want to work on it without doing a full re-write, but I might be able to give some help

bwai wasn't shut down during the sen incident, it stayed up and strong for a long while. It was a sad day when it disappeared though :(
