    I've got another spell that I need help on: how do I use the lightning special effects?? What's Code to Code? I need lightning to go from random points in a region centered around a region to go to the caster.

    Panto said this before, but

    You abbreviate the lightning code:
    i.e. Chain Lightning Primary Bolt = CLBP

    So...you're saying that I can't make my own codes? I had no idea that they had to be specific..but what if I wanted to have a tinted lightning color??

    Hmm... I remember seeing some coloring changes into the WE. Having a look... Yes, it is possible. Use the following trigger combo:

    Special Effect - Create a Lightning Effect Code From To (Code - code of the lightning, From - starting point, To - end point)
    Special Effect - Set Lightning Effect Color (Change Last Created Lightning Effect color to Red, Green, Blue, Alpha)

    Just remember that lightning effects do not disappear immediately like original ones. They are like a continous one (let's say... Siphon Mana). It seems to me that you never worked with lightnings before.

    Just look over the RAW CODE of the lightnings... I hope you know how you can see the Raw code. Then changing the color is piece of cake. :D
