    Need Help with Strafe and Multiple shot archer

    Note that (Target unit of ability being cast) is not safe after the wait, meaning that if you cast another spell with another unit within those 10 seconds, it points to the wrong unit. You'd need to track the target, storing it in a variable

    Damage Engine

    I'm not sure, but NextDamageIsAttack causes my trigger with FILTER_ATTACK to not trigger. When I look within the engine, I see that the "isCode"-variable is set if NextDamageIsAttack = true, witch is wierd imo. I solved it by removing all NextDamage..., becuase the triggered damage was...

    Can there be more than 1 unit with this passive? Is it a learned passive? Does the unit exist in start of map or do you "pick" a hero? Is it even a hero? The basics are: 1. Have an initialize trigger, if it is a learned ability or you have a hero picking system, add the hero to a unit-group...

    [Development] CliCli Incubation Program!

    It depends on what you define as "see your map triggers". If a scrambled mess that result in same thing in-game, but it barely editable due to variable names, function names etc. being shortened and/or optimized, you are technically correct. But in reality, probably not. It's likely easier to...

    Another excellent icon from a legend, creating a ton of useful Icons over many years :) IMO this could use some touch ups on the top swirl in the background, making it slightly smoother with sparkles or something, but extremely useful as is! Thanks for all the icons!

    [Crash] Slider-Based Trigger Leak

    The ones you disabled to confirm that they were very likely the cause of issues, (hopefully) fixed leak in Loc3 assignment and (hopefully) removed unneeded remove of Loc3 (in the other trigger).

    Can you post the latest slide triggers? It'd make it more clear with less assumptions on my part (and assumptions can easily miss details).

    [Crash] Slider-Based Trigger Leak

    Good question. Not that I can see in the triggers above. I'd look for leaks in stuff that runs a lot (I.E. short timers or large groups typically), points and groups are most common and maybe excessive unit-creation (do you have a ton of dummies?). btw, Slide2 removes Loc3 but does not use...

    How to create a frame spinner?

    I don't know how to do "inputs" (where you can write using keyboard) in RUID or FDF, but just placing text-labels (one with "date" and one with the value), two buttons with "/\" and "\/" on top of each other and make triggers to add/remove from a value and make one of text-labels get its text...

    [Crash] Slider-Based Trigger Leak

    In this trigger, Loc3 does not use Loc1 for its "initial position", so that's a leak per unit per 0.03 seconds.

    [Solved] How to detect enemy units within range?

    Kind of, yes. Store the previous "picked unit" (if you need it later) in another variable, set a group-variable to units within X range of some point, do another loop with that group and then destroy that group and start that for-each-unit-in-group with an if-block to filter enemy heroes...

    Damage Engine

    It's fairly simple. First detect the instance where you want to do this, then modify the damage to deal 50% of its current value (I'd guess a pre-armor-event should be used), then deal new damage (same amount as the modified value) with DamageType universal and probably set NextDamageType =...

    Playing with random terrain generation

    Yes, some thing like that, but maybe it's too slow. I've seen people say that triggers are processed every 0.03125 seconds. I have not done enough research to confirm, but I was thinking of processing 1 row every that much time.

    Playing with random terrain generation

    There are ways to avoid function queue limitations, such as calculating one row/tick, storing result in an array, when all is complete, analyze the results and apply it to the map. Or something like that. Anyways, interested to follow the progression! :)

    I love me some random terrain generation! Wonderful to see! The mountains could be improved by introducing some additinal noice on top of the "Shablam! Round, smooth mountain". I'd probably use some multi layered perlin noice with some fractals to achieve it, but as long as it looks good :P I...

    Trigger help

    One thing about the special effect here is that if you have another trigger that creates a special effect during this 0.5 seconds wait, the "Destroy (Last created special effect)" of this trigger will destroy that one, because it is created AFTER this special effect. In this case, for feral...

    [Solved] Playing specific animations for Special Effects

    need some advice for tower defense

    It doesn't matter how you spawn units or "nothing going on", whenever 1 player have more than X units, it will cause issues with Warcraft 3 Path Finding that all move orders uses resulting in units "randomly" standing still, moving "towards" the move-order, but not always in the closest...

    need some advice for tower defense

    If I remember correctly, the path finding issues (stuttering) starts when a player owns (or moves) more than 200 (or there around) units. Having 3-4 "enemy players" is recommended to keep units walking as expected when given move orders.

    [Trigger] Set ability cooldown - map won't load anymore?

    I haven't run 1.29 in ages, but one strange thing about setting cooldown is that you usually need to "refresh" the ability for it to take effect. By "refresh" I mean for example increase the level by 1, then decrease it by 1. This seems to be fine even if the ability only has 1 level or are at...

    Damage Engine

    You need a newer version of Damage Engine to handle other event-values than exactly 1.0, 2.0, 3.0, 4.0. Any event-value was added in I upgraded recently from to, running on 1.31, no problems. I'd guess newer works well too. It was an easy upgrade process imo.
