Ah, sorry.  Nope apparently there is no way to detect when a critical hit occurs.  The best work around, is to have an effect trigger with approximately the same percentage of hits. 

So, if a creature will critical hit on a roll of 20, then have the effect trigger for 5% of the hits.  If it criticals on a 19 and 20, then 10%.  This isn't perfect, because the attack roll modifiers are not taken into account, but its the best work-around possible as far as I know.

Some hints are there, but what I got from browsing the posts the answer is pretty close to 'not really'.

I'd like to be able to apply a .eff file when the player delivers a critical hit with a certain weapon.  Is there any way of detecting when a critical hit has occured, and to have an item or spell trigger when this occurs?

EDIT: Answered on another forum.
