1. Go into units.dat and set their attack to Lockdown. tongue.gif
2. I seem to remember some problems with mind control... I'll go check that out.

If changing the weapon itself doesn't work, try changing a different weapon's explosion type to "Mind Control".

what i have done is use an unnused protoss building..... give him a new weapon (using an unnused one) with mind control explosion...... but the weapon doesn't show....... doesn't fire (i give the fire and stop actions with memgraft so that isn't the problem) confused.gif

Mind Control cannot be applied to weapons. Sorry.
Also, depending on the building's graphic, you may have to give it an attack animation in ICE/IceCC.

Basicaly, with the exception of Mind Control, it should be any weapon which has an entry in the explosion/spell data, and certainly any spell that actualy is a weapon ( for example, you can find irradiate in weapons.dat ) .

I know this as I made a Scout shoot bullets that plague, so here goes:

Open datedit,select the eapon tab, select your weapon and in the explosion part its there, for the photon cannon look for the weapons STS photon cannon and STA photon cannon (#80 and #81).

I found a fun one to be a area splash of broodling explosion, real fun tongue.gif
