attatching scripted light effects

Is there a way to attach a scripted light effect that uses the showing command to a specific sprite? (I use showing because that seems teh easiest to creating such as trails with)

you can just add the light effect as a sprite, put it in the gani, then open the gani in a text file and put in changeimgcolors index red green blue alpha.

Or you can open the gani with a text editor, jump to the end, add a line:
followed by your script (always clientside, no //#CLIENTSIDE needed, can be GS2 too), and when you are done, one last line:
Save, upload, and enjoy.

Since I don't know, what's your scripting or general dev level i will post another reply since both Frankie's and Crow's answers are pretty accurate but i don't think someone with few experience will be able to figure it out what they are trying to i will make a detail guide here.

to add a scripted light effect you have to follow this steps:

First, you make your gani as simple and normal gani and use a light sprite definition(the black and white light) wherever you want it to appear

Then, when done with the general appearance of your gani and with the light def. in place save the gani and close graal shop.

Afterward, open your recently made gani using any notepad(right click on it and press open with... notepad)

you will have something like this:

this is from a gun with a laser i made:
PHP Code:
SPRITE    3 tl_laserpointer2.gif    0    0  182   20 sprite
SPRITE    4 tl_laserpointer2
.gif    5   20  182   20 sprite
SPRITE    5            BODY  120  398    8    8 sprite
SPRITE    6            BODY   32  398    8    8 sprite
SPRITE    7            BODY   68  344    8    8 sprite
SPRITE   10          SHIELD    0    0    6   18 shield up
SPRITE   11          SHIELD    6    0    8   20 shield left
SPRITE   12          SHIELD   14    0   16   20 shield down
SPRITE   13          SHIELD   30    0    8   20 shield right
SPRITE   14 tl_sal
-creeper.gif   14    4   26   17 tl_sal-creeper
SPRITE   15 tl_sal
-creeper.gif   15   41   28   18 tl_sal-creeper
SPRITE   16 tl_sal
-creeper.gif    0   21   42   20 tl_sal-creeper
SPRITE   17 tl_sal
-creeper.gif   32   58    7   10 tl_sal-creeper
SPRITE   18 tl_sal
-creeper.gif   50   58    6   10 tl_sal-creeper
SPRITE   19 tl_sal
-creeper.gif   49    4   27   17 tl_sal-creeper 
then go to the end of the paper and look for this:
PHP Code:
SETBACKTO tl_ceo-laserhg-idle
right after it, you can add a space in between if you want, add this.
PHP Code:
COLOREFFECT 1 0.4 0.4 1 0.7
COLOREFFECT 2 0.4 0.4 1 0.7
COLOREFFECT 3 0.4 0.4 1 0.7
COLOREFFECT 4 0.4 0.4 1 0.7 
this works like this:

COLOREFFECT <sprite index> <red color effect> <green color effect> <blue color effect>

you can add multiple lines to define different color effect to many sprites.
in my case i wanted all laser sides to be slightly blueish

after that add this script this is in my case but you can modify it to fit your gani, make sure to remove comments as they might cause problems.
PHP Code:
if (created){
drawwaslight;//draw as a light
changeimgvis 1,3;//change the image visibility of sprites with index 1,2,3,4
changeimgvis 2,3;
changeimgvis 3,3;
changeimgvis 4,3;    
Okay, you can save it know and when you open it on the game you should see your color effect...

hopes this helps you.
