I havent modded for a long, long, time, so specifically, I dont quite know how to do this. However, I may be able to give you some pretty good guidelines. Since these, aren't very specific, I hope another fellow Halo Modder may come to your assistance.

To have a flaming effect, try adding the plasma grenade pulsing flame thing on the frag grenade. This should give you a blue fire around it, but keep in mind, the flame only lasts 3 or 5 seconds as a Plasma Grenade that is stuck lasts only that long. To have the red flame, continue onto this page:

How to make Flaming Plasma Grenades, Halo 2 Downloads, Halo 2 Mods

While that page may be directed towards Plasma Nades, try applying it to the Frag Grenade.

If you would want to easily settle for a Flaming Plasma, just follow those instructions on that page. It seems that would be easier as the frag/sticky nade model itself would be mostly enveloped in the flame that you couldnt tell which is which.

I hope that helps, and I apologize that I cant give some step by steps, but I think that page should suffice. Good Luck, and happy modding.

PS: For the flame trail, I have fiddled with some stuff like that a while back. A more experienced modder could go off my suggestion: Using the flame trail from a flamethrower (in this specific case, just the small one as it is only a small trail), have it come out the back. Simply pasting the effect only gives it one flourish, but I think that maybe using Guerilla or Sapien, you can chain spawn the flame out, leaving a nice trail. The chain spawn should be regulated, and then stop when either the nade comes to a stop or explodes.

I mean more like which specific tag would i swap it with for either tag: the frag or the flamethrouwer. Should i be replacing Effects\weapons\frag grenade\effects\smoke

or

Effects\weapons\frag grenade\effects\throw

What should i use ppl? especially from the flamethrower..... flame char? Jet????????

OK, now i know that Effects\weapons\frag grenade\effects\smoke causes the smoke trails out of the FRAG grenades, but what do i replace it with to have a nice flame tail? I have already tried Effects\weapons\flamethrower\effects\flame thrower jet but no luck.

In my post-note, I mentioned that simply changing it isnt effective. However, a more experienced modder could probably chain-spawn a flame trail out of it. Hopefully, some one on these forums can help.

I'm about 80% sure this is possible... I don't really know how, but maybe you could just do what (the dirty dirty) Shisno is saying...
