NGE - Ability Animation Speed

I have been playing on the Legends server and noticed that certain abilities cause the animation for that ability to be triggered at a considerably lower speed.

Example: Smuggler - Pin Down (AOE Melee Ability) - when a polearm is equipped this attack triggers the animation all_b_cbt_pole_standing_ready_showoff_2 - The animation tied to this specific ability when using a Polearm forces the animation at a ridiculously slow speed. I have swapped out other animations with less movement and renamed it "all_b_cbt_pole_standing_ready_showoff_2" which will switch the animation for this ability but the speed will ALWAYS be reduced.

Would someone be kind enough to point me in the direction of how to potentially increase the animation speed of this ability? I love using polearms on my smuggler but it kills me to watch this long animation fire. I was reading other posts on here and think someone mentioned that animation speed was modified thru the .lat files, like the file "" however I don't know how to properly edit this file as I seem to only be able to open it in notepad/wordpad. I have run a search on the above animation and have found the entry but have no idea what value I would be changing to achieve the results desired. Maybe theres another editor I need to use?

Any help is greatly appreciated. Thank you

As much as I always hate to do this, for the sake of the scene and this site, I can't allow there to be support of any kind for NGE which is only runs on illegally obtained src servers these days, so I'll have to close it.
