      How's (0,-11) possible, though? The integer value can't even be negative.

        I did get a massive smile on my face when I realized what EXACTLY the Battle.net client was advertising with a giant golden III. I thought it was a wc3 themed hearthstone expansion at first.

      "Imo vJASS is a fine introduction to OOP languages"
      Imo it teaches bad programming habits and paradigms and thus isn't suitable as a beginner language.
      When you move from vJass to something else later, you carry that burden.
      I think I would even prefer vanilla Jass over vJass because it teaches very basic event based programming, as intended by a small language initially designed for small scripts.
      Such scripting can be still found in modern ruby/groovy envs.
      My 2cents
      1. Pyrogasm
        Pyrogasm
        Can you give examples of bad habits and paradigms one might inherit? I think if you're a competent programmer you will realize every language is different and the methods/practices from A do not necessarily carry over or apply to B. But vJASS is straightforward with simple syntax; you understand what an object is, that you (might) need to take care of their allocation and deallocation, and you get introduced to code encapsulation (not an OOP thing). I would like to know the bad practices you see.

        Yes, a "competent programmer". But we are talking about a language to begin programming with. Examples of habits that ppl coming from vjass to wurst regularly show, have several reasons. For once because JassHelper doesn't do any optimizations except 1line inline, people write "optimized" code, which is unreadable and hard to maintain. They are encouraged to work against the language (custom allocation) and do stuff, which is strange and should be handled by the compiler instead (handle nulling, static ifs). They use raw loops instead of for-loops or closures. Simple things like passing data along a timer are complicated - pretty much all major languages don't work this way. People constantly reinvent the wheel because there is no established "standard library" of any sorts. Likewise no real conventions or linting. It's a mess to find and keep dependencies updated. Just an excerpt.

        As you mentioned before, vJass wins on the convenience side, as it is now even included by default.
        Wurst inherently embraces various other concepts such as version controlling the code, using an IDE, dependency management and can also be used independently from wc3, cross platform, while vJass binds you to the world editor.

        One might make the argument that all this is overwhelming beginners, and I agree, it can be. A strong suite of vJass is the wide availability and variety of resources, tutorials and answered questions which are useful for beginners. I guess in the end Wurst is simply aimed at power-users and experienced coders - but personally I'd still prefer wurst as the tool of choice as preparation for using a standalone programming language.

        Not a golf watcher. I don't see the point of zooming in on the ball against the sky while its in the air; that tells me nothing because I can't tell where it is in relation to the green! Would have like to actually be able to see the ball hit the tree and bounce off it in that last shot.

      Reputation points are user-time dependent. It's not like in the real world where you'd run out of matter by giving it. Here, you give something without losing anything. How's that for infinity?
      Which makes you wonder... is our universe actually unlimited? The energy within it?

        Certainly within the realm of possibility (assuming the reference frame of 'possibility' is outside of this universe).

        But technically, this universe actually has a limit, at least with how science understands it.

        I was running farmers' markets and working for a farm the past few years, but I just recently moved back in with my parents to try to get my life in order (ultimately hated living in Los Angeles and was losing money every month)... so right now I'm doing nothing. Well, my neighbor is bringing me along with him on his mole-removal operations but that's not really my job.

        I have an MS in Astronautical Engineering and will hopefully actually get to using that sometime soon, but not feeling like I was adequate in that field is a big part of the reason my life wasn't in order in the first place. Ideally I'll find some sort of engineering position where I am now and parlay that into some aerospace stuff soon, but who knows.

        This maybe makes sense, if ignore message has then higher priority. Iirc when I was staff, for example https://www.hiveworkshop.com/members/pyramidhe-d.140223/ was banned, too, and now for me there's the same message. So at least it would explain why none can't access the profile with this message. So crossed name, maybe you're right, is also no more.

      Have you played my rpg map yet? The shadows are not included in the current version yet but it's already playable. It's in my resource section. I also had a nightmare last night in which the shadow calculation had an error and stopped. But then i woke up and i noticed that the calculation was complete.

      hey man thanks for helping in my thread: https://www.hiveworkshop.com/threads/save-code-in-txt-file.307389/
      I actually found out from another guy that the default path has been changed to "C:/Users/<username>/My Documents/Warcraft III/CustomMapData" and since you are a JASSer I thought maybe you would know if it's possible to actually change the location (although I doubt about that)
      1. Pyrogasm
        Pyrogasm
        There might be a Registry entry for that folder that you can change, which would change where the data is saved, but it would only be in that new location for anyone who has changed their registry prior to saving. So on most people's machines you functionally can't change the folder.

        With Memory Hack (https://www.hiveworkshop.com/threads/memory-hack.289508/) you seem to be able to run arbitrary code. I've never tried to use it, but perhaps with that you can simply move the created file from its creation point to wherever you want it to be. File move should be a pretty basic operation to achieve with the mem hack. Just remember you'll have to look at the user's registry to see where wc3 is installed, since some might choose a different directory or drive.
