I recall reading somewhere that you can't change unit parameters in the editor. This was in a thread comparing GB to Empire Earth and the difference in the editors.

There should be triggers in the editor that allow you to change things such as:

Change Object Name
Change Object HP
Change Object Attack

I hope you are able to change the names of the units

Yes. You are. I think Mr. Gaber only meant that you cannot create permanent units, but must fix their HPs, attacks, and names every scenario.

Well, unfortunately name, HP, and attack are the ONLY things you can change. Things like armor, range, and speed cannot be changed at all. :(

Like the above mentioned, you need to use the Change Name, Change HP, and Change Attack triggers :).
