Immobilize a creature


Returns an effect that when applied will paralyze the target's legs, rendering them unable to walk but otherwise unpenalized. This effect cannot be resisted.

The target this effect is applied to must be a creature for it to work. This effect should not be applied instantly, only temporarily or permanently.


This actually seems more like a paralysis effect which cannot be resisted. In any case, this most certainly will *always* stop a creature in its tracks.

Effect functions are Constructors, which are special methods that help construct effect "objects". You can declare and link effects, and apply them using an ApplyEffectToObject() Command. Once applied, each effect can be got separately via looping valid effects on the target (GetFirst/NextEffect()). See the Effect tutorial for more details.




// Sample code for applying Cutseen Immobilize to a target
void main()
    // This is the Object to apply the effect to.
    object oTarget = OBJECT_SELF;
    // Create the effect to apply
    effect eImmobilize = EffectCutsceneImmobilize();
    // Create the visual portion of the effect. This is instantly
    // applied and not persistent with whether or not we have the
    // above effect.
    effect eVis = EffectVisualEffect(VFX_IMP_REDUCE_ABILITY_SCORE);
    // Apply the visual effect to the target
    ApplyEffectToObject(DURATION_TYPE_INSTANT, eVis, oTarget);
    // Apply the effect to the object   
    ApplyEffectToObject(DURATION_TYPE_PERMANENT, eImmobilize, oTarget);
