      That is very interesting. The award should be rewarded to ones that finish the crash course imo. All missions is just too much.

      I'd love to add vJASS' struct-related missions there, but it says it's limited to things applicable in vanilla JASS only eh? But from this limitation, missions to replicate structs exist.

      Missions that help in understanding the vJASS that we currently use should be around. The vJASS we use now is quite not original, like how structs always extend array, and how interfaces are well forgotten. Then there's this must-to-understand concept of how structs are actually just arrays and keys wrapped in deceptive beauty. Plus the existence of structs that actually don't even use arrays (sometimes just global variables like WorldBounds, other times they use Table fields instead). Also, how this particular Table library exactly works should be better informed.

        Np mate. I still have a whole bunch of things left to do, so without those, I think I'll manage better.

        I think vJASS missions would be a nice addition. Though only for the later missions. As IcemanBo said the JASS class is intended for beginners and I think it's good to have a general idea of how vanilla JASS works, before diving into vJASS.

        At the very least, there must be a reward for just completing the crash course. It's quite a feat already to finish them all, imo. And this should help motivate the 'students' to move further in the class.

        "It uses TriggerRegisterUnitEvent to detect order changes rather than your thing"
        Mine uses it, too, just with RegisterPlayerUnitEvent library.

      I finished the Plugin Library, you can view it in the latest version of Spell Menu System. There is a problem though with ghost item pickups, the solution I have for that right now is to simply hide the item again.

      To create the bug you spamclick or shift click the item you can basically execute multiple item-pickups which then interfers with the system.

        Well, not sure I will review your submissions.

      Apperently I've broken my LinkedList sorting algo, it's filled with Double Frees. And I have no clue what I did back then. I found an older working version, but I don't want to touch it. ^^ You don't happen to have tested it or have a backup on you?

        Sorry, I've no backup of it.

      I'm a bit curious about your profile pic. I think some of them were used as map preview for polar escape series.
      1. IcemanBo
        IcemanBo
        Polar Escape is a similar game, but as I'm aware of it's a map series Area of Ice Escape by swpmoele, the very original ones.

        But a bunch of them are still missing, at least for western public. If you have something from second half, it would be cool to share! :D

        That's awesome. I had played a lot of Polar Escape back in 2007-2011. However, I havent tried that one yet, but I will do so soon. Thanks for sharing that info. :)

      Hey dude, I want know, what is FoG? I never heard that in my entire wc3 programming.

      You said that you need to use FoG to count the number of the unit in the group. So, I'm confuse.
      1. IcemanBo
        IcemanBo
        Hey Nel. It's some tequnique that one can use for group enumeration without splitting the "loop" into an other function ( so local values don't get lost). Sure, it is not best to have everything in single functions, but it is definitly a method one could benefit from sometimes.

        Have you googled/hived for it? :) You probably would fine some threads about it. :)

      Hey man. If I don't null the variable for a picked unit in a group pick in between each instance, what might happen?
      1. IcemanBo
        IcemanBo
        Global variable? In terms of memory leak it would not matter at least, if you need this. :)

        Yup, global. Thanks!

      Set HarpDagger_Point = (Position of HarpDagger_Dummy[HarpDagger_Loop])
      Set HarpDagger_Point = (HarpDagger_Point offset by HarpDagger_SpeedTravel towards HarpDagger_AngleIndexed[HarpDagger_Loop] degrees)
      Custom script: call RemoveLocation(udg_HarpDagger_Point)

      can i ask sir if this way is okay?
      1. IcemanBo
        IcemanBo
        It's leaked at the point you overwrite the variable without destroying it's content.

        how about putting array to those udg points?

      Sir is it okay not to destroy the indexed group?

      It actually took me more than 5 minutes to find that thread. I KNEW I remembered one where I commented and someone uploaded a simple template, but I could not figure out the combination of keywords to get it to show up!

      Thanks for showing your appreciation

      ...and this year, the Conchita Award for worst thread-cleaning goes to...
      XD

      Joking aside, I must admit I am struck to the quick. In the days ahead, I might open a thread in Staff contact, with some additional (possibly unrelated) info from the past weeks which might have gone unnoticed.

        The thing I didn't expose is that staff doesn't have the capacity to properly work on all existing topics. But yeh, the attempt is still better. ;D

        Part of the problem is that the thread starter may not have reported the conchita post as being off-topic to begin with

        Dito, hehe ;D

        I enjoy checking some other coders' acitivity when they are online. It helps me to find interesting threads.. and you are very active in those threads. :) Follow helps me to see what you are doing, lol.

        But yeh, there's not too much sense in follows per se, I guess.
