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?

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.

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.

Not sure what happens if you give to P1 if they are gone, but if you create for P1 and then give to Force 1 (or whoever) that works perfectly. But you can't create for Force 2 (if P1 is Force 2) or Current Player if you want an empty P1 slot to receive units. Also keep in mind units you do create for P1 will be hostile to everyone, regardless of ally status, and will have no AI.
