This mod adds flaming projectiles to your catapult and petrobolos, thus making them more realistic
and improving the overall game experience.
Also replaces the ballista fire effect with
a better looking one.
[b]== Installation & Uninstallation ==[/b]
Put the folder contained in the archive in the main folder of the game.
(default is Program Files/Microsoft Games/Age of Mythology)
To uninstall the mod go into your Age of Mythology/anim folder and remove ballista_shot_anim,
catapult_shot_anim and petrobolos_shot_anim.
Does the flame affect come into place when you research the Flaming Arrows upgrade? or is it there as soon as you hit Heroic Age?

Thanks for your comments guys.
I always asked myself why catapults/petros were
the only siege wep without flaming shot, maybe ES
just forgot how good a flaming rock looks.
Btw, for a better effect you should increase the
projectile speed for cats and petros by just a
little bit (+2, max +3).
This mainly because, in the opposite case,
when you start throwing from 30 range you'd
see the fire anim disappear about half second
before hitting the building.
The reason is that the fire ball anim sfx
which i used is by default faster than the slow
cat/petro shot, and by upgrading the projectile
speed you sync it.
