    UI: OriginFrames

You can get rid of it with BlzFrameSetVisible(BlzGetFrameByName("ConsoleUIBackdrop",0), false). Maybe you...

In the loot tab of the data editor there is the field CLoot_ValidatorArray. as soon as i put any validator in there (tried different ones for test purposes), no loot appears (without validator i get loot). i think the...

    [Unsolved] Attack Action Actor launch site ops problem

    thanks for the answer! i didnt even think of looking into the launch effect... but even adjusting that launch offset does not move it up, still the (parabola --> guided) mover uses it to calculate its horizontal speed, which lets the missile slow down at the end. i managed to solve it now: in...

    [Unsolved] Data editor questions: Actor problems

    ah, i didn't even know about macros yet. i did what you suggested and played around with it and finally solved the problem. i just removed the whole death macro and everything works as it should. i already tested what happens when other people destroy a tree in the fog of war and it behaves...

    [Unsolved] Data editor questions - Warcraft Assets

    1. ok, i figured the first out myself now. the solution is very similar to TyaArcade's solution for question 2 if someone is interested in the solution: in my unit actor, i changed the PortraitActor, PlacementActorModel, and PlaceholderActorModel to custom actors that have an event to...
