    [JASS] Trackables

    Well, I started a map once (that I never finished) where all units had the Locust ability, and you would move your hero around by clicking invisible trackables on the ground. This allowed me to use all 12 command button slots by making a control unit in the corner of the map that was constantly...

    [JASS] Trackables

    ...and a lot people used to say that calling InitGameCache over and over wouldn't leak - a lot of people were wrong. Both mistakes were caused by people jumping to conclusions a long time ago. Also remember that trackables were discussed before the gamecache and return bug were put to use, so...

    [JASS] Transparent Roofs for 1 player

    No, you must put the code inside the actions function. function Trig_Untitled_Trigger_001_Actions takes nothing returns nothing // A unit enters the building local unit roof = gg_unit_hfoo_0000 call FadeUnitVertexColorForPlayer( roof, 1, 1, 1, 1, 1, 1, 1, 0.40, 1.0...

    [Solved] Mouse Button Click Event?

    There is no way to specifically detect the left mouse button click. However, you can cover the entire map by trackables (or one biiig trackable), and detect its hit event. In that case, it will trigger for left and right mouse button alike, and there will be a few side effects like units'...

    [JASS] My special effects wont DIE!

    The function GetLastCreatedEffectBJ only works if you created the effect usinga BJ function. That is, AddSpecialEffectBJ or AddSpecialEffectTargetBJ. But I don't recommend using those function. I'd rather save the effect directly in a local: // This is where you create the effect set...

    [JASS] Removing a unit variable, without removing the unit?

    If you mean a variable set using the handle variables, you just set that variable to null (or 0) and it is cleaned up. If you mean a global or local variable, it makes no sense trying to remove them.

    [JASS] Variable not being passed correctly?

    Glad to hear that it works. It's not as complicated as you think it is. Remember: A timer is not destroyed when it expires. It still exists as an object, even if you set periodic to false (non-repeating). There is still a lot of work for you if you want it perfect, because there are many...

    [JASS] Variable not being passed correctly?

    The problem is that you are using the Trigger to store the variables on, where you should use the timer. In the SkyPortion function, you should set the variable on the timer rather than the trigger. And in SkyDamagePortion you should use GetExpiredTimer() instead of GetTriggeringTrigger()...

    [JASS] Evil Compiler - Cant fix my problem!

    I wrote a tutorial on how to beat that issue. Using globals tend to get messy because if your trigger runs more than once at the same time, everything will be messed up. You can read the tutorial, but it is very generic so you may have a hard time understanding how it works. The Handle...

    [JASS] Evil Compiler - Cant fix my problem!

    This line is wrong: set t1 = CreateTimer(t, 0.03, true, function k_001(target, 6.00, cast) You cannot pass parameters to a code parameter, AND you are mixing CreateTimer and TimerStart together.

    [JASS] Question about jass/gui

    I think you can remove the selection circle by setting Selection Size (or something like that) to 0.00 in the Object Editor for all units. If course, if you want to turn it on and off again, that wouldn't be an ideal solution. There is an object called a trackable, which was never used by...

    [JASS] why is this simple function leaking?

    You are right. I did some tests on this and I found out that the problem is InitGameCache. When people started using the gamecache someone convinced me that it didn't leak - but it does! It returns a new handle every time and those handles leak. To fix it, make a global Gamecache variable and...
