This hack allows you to alter the properties of grenades to give them a different explosion effect. In this example, you will change the frag grenade so that its explosion looks more like a plasma explosion.
To do this, open up your map in DotHalo and navigate to the [proj] tags in the Tags windows. The tag to look for is objects\weapons\grenade\frag_grenade\frag_grenade (see ).

Next, go to the dependencies window and swap some of the dependencies for the frag grenade. Swap the foot reference to effects\materials\objects\weapons\plasma_grenade and both effe tags to effects\impact\explosion_ small\plasma_grenade\airborne_detonation ().

After you have made the change, sign your map and then FTP it to your Xbox .
Your frag grenades will now glow when they explode (see ). Changes such as this are used every day by modders so that they can create new effects for their modded maps .
