[Spell] Buff Animation on Custom Model

Level 4
Aug 12, 2014
I am having an issue with a custom model (http://www.hiveworkshop.com/forums/models-530/constellationclass-47504/?prev=search%3Dspaceship%26d%3Dlist%26r%3D20) displaying the animation for the spell/buff, Mana Shield, on my custom hero unit. From searching around, I found out that custom models often do not display some animations or are notoriously bugged in general and these things wont work properly. In my attempt to troubleshoot, I discovered the first problem is that the model did not have an attachment point. I edited the model and added "origin" attachment point to the MDX model file. Beyond that, I am not sure what else to do. Under the spell I changed:

Art - Target Attachment Point 1 - origin
Art - Target Attachments: 1

as was recommended on several other threads and still no change. I also toyed with other options and followed several guides with zero success so far.

Is this at all possible to get working?
