need to edit the effects and place those files in addon (temporarily, for testing) or in a folder that is first in the search list.

from shadow_a:

colors are RGB and Alpha

[Flame]
renderBase = "draw_twirl_trail"
textureName = "flame.tga"
textureBlend = "one one modulate"
startColor = "255 255 63 255"
finishColor = "255 0 0 0"
startRadius = 0.2
finishRadius = 0.02
animateTime = 0.02
emitDelay = 0.001
emitVelocity = "0.0 0.0 0.0"
emitVariance = "2.0 2.0 2.0"
emitLife = 0.02

tried to change the color but it stayed the same. Though I do know that the main file wont recognize the combat version of the cannon; dont know why though.
[Flame]
renderBase = "draw_twirl_trail"
textureName = "flame.tga"
textureBlend = "one one modulate"
startColor = "255 31 31 255"
finishColor = "31 255 31 255"
startRadius = 0.2
finishRadius = 0.02
rotationRate = 10.0
animateTime = 0.02
emitDelay = 0.001
emitVelocity = "0.0 0.0 0.0"
emitVariance = "2.0 2.0 2.0"
emitLife = 0.02

Got another mod loaded?
Also the colors of very short lived effects like the flame can be tricky, its only .02 secs between start and end you will probably only see a color in between the start and end colors anyway.
startColor = "255 31 31 255"
finishColor = "31 255 31 255"
this will probably look orange.

Okay, important question: You using a new file name yes?

If so, make you RenderName(s) point to the new file name's renders. Renders can be called from any file.

renderName = "atstab_c.render" << Filename . RenderName.

[Render] << This is the render name.
renderBase = "draw_multi"
renderCount = 3
renderName1 = "atstab_c.smoke" << FileName . RenderName.
renderName2 = "atstab_c.flame"
renderName3 = "atstab_c.Light"


So, you could call a render from a completely different ODF, such as blast_c.core, or some such, in a renderName.
