You can find those and edit them in proto.

Proto can be found in data.xmb. You have to extract that to view and edit proto xml.

no t0m, you need to download aomed and extract data2.bar, not data.xmb. seriously t0m, stop saying stuff if it's wrong! lol...

if you don't know how to do that, launch aomed once you download it and click the "?" icon in the top-right corner.

once you extract data2.bar, go back to the instructions in "?" for direct file conversion. use those instructions to convert protox.xmb into xml format.

once you have a copy of protox.xml, post back here and i'll show you how to give your unit a special attack (always, not just in scenarios).

keep in mind, however, that modifying proto will disable online play, so before you edit proto, make sure to keep a backup copy so that when you play online, rename the protox.xml file you modified to protoxMODS.xml and rename the backup copy protox.xml. when you are finished playing online, rename protoxMODS.xml to protox.xml and rename protox.xml back to protox.xml.old or whatever it originally was.

ya....the only way to give units special attacks is through the proto and anim files.

but it WOULD be REALLY cool if you could do that in the editor....
