    [Trigger] Unit movement not making sense???

    I think I recall a way to make the Neutral units "think" they're always in their guard area...or something like that.

    Maps with Land Underground !!

    Look at Water War (if you've ever played it), that has underwater and above water without having two seperate maps...I'm not exactly sure how it is done, however.

    Please help with complicated balancing

    Make them all do the same damage in a period of time. That would be balanced, right? Let's say the time period is 5 seconds. One weapon could be 1 times as fast (0% increase)and do 30 extra damage and another could be 2 times as fast (100% increase) and do 7.5 extra damage. If the hero does 15...

    Awards @ endgame

    If I had to do that I would use the eye doctor method. Checking red's against blue's, then setting a variable to the higher one. I'd check the variable against teal, and so on. I've never really gotten how do do the integer A and integer B things..

    Help plzzz!

    Re: Moin^^ You have to set it to 0 not subtracting 1. If it was set to subtracting 1, then whenever you got a kill after your first double kill it'd count as a double kill.

    Generic Unit Takes Damage Event- A Frequently Asked Question

    I'm guessing that's what you were explaining on our clan forums...well, I hardly know what handle variables are, but that's still pretty cool.

    In your map it seems that the flag isn't heavily involved. By the time you get to the flag, the enemy is already at your complete mercy, and what's gonna stop you from just running back with the flag and winning? Nothing. Maybe you could change the design slightly, to make the flag more involved...

    Map Project start! Eragon: Defense of Tronjheim

    Tronjheim is where the Urgals came in to attack Farthen Dur. So, if he has the Isidar Mithrim, that directly implies that he will have Farthen Dur as well. I'd be glad to help with any ideas or triggering. If I knew how to change the view in gmax I might be able to learn how to model..

    Map Project start! Eragon: Defense of Tronjheim

    Hmm...I wish I knew how to model. I'm actually working on that right now. :) A giant ruby with death animation...hmm. I hope someone can help you with these things, but I couldn't model if my life depended on it.....yet.
  17. Xander-


    Go to the abilities tab in the object editor. Go to one of the defense bonus abilities for items. Change it to a unit ability. In the column for attackment points, put in two things seperately. right (or left), and hand. Then add a model in below that row (still in the attachment section) and...

    I was just suggesting that you use the river and lake in front of the entrance for effect. Ugh. I'm confused, what is Tronjheim again?

    Map idea: Eragon: Defense of Farten dür

    The map will need to be huge, after all there are mountains surrounding Farthen Dur and a winding river leading up to a giant stone wall with a lake in front of it. Hmm...I'll try to read the parts that give a good description of Farthen Dur so I have a better idea.

    Map idea: Eragon: Defense of Farten dür

    I would be glad to help with what I can. :) I did a map of Alagaesia for my book project (it was a board game), so I have a general idea of where Farthen Dur is located and what some of the place should look like.

    Map idea: Eragon: Defense of Farten dür

    It's basically it's defending the city of Farthen Dur (can't make the...thing on the u with my computer) from the Urgals and from Durza (or however you spell it) The Urgals would come from the tunnels, and Derza would try to penetrate the city defenses by himself. If you want to...

    How i put a score and rewards to my maps?

    Select unit trigger

    I'm not sure that will work. I think that Selected Unit will only refer to an Event or an Action [i.e., you select a unit with a trigger action] I'm not sure how you would do it, I'm pretty sure there's a JASS code...function...thingy for it, [like smart is for right clicking], then you could...

    Help with Trigger, removing units owned by unused slot playe

    Eh...You used picked player for the removal, all of the players have to be not playing which is impossible... You have to do it seperately for each player, and as [email protected] said, use a periodic timer.
  37. Xander-


    Your loop problem is that you make the units and they appear on the map, so it makes infinite units and crashes the game.. I'm pretty sure you could do it by having the purchasing of the original unit as an event.
  38. Xander-

    Yeah, right....

    Sigh...Your solutions aren't creative enough. Just make a game that looks exactly like DotA, and make the imba heroes' spells kill themselves instead of doing what they did before. Heh...Maybe I'm being a bit TOO evil :twisted: Oh well...It's worth a try. They want DotA? They can have DotA...

    Map Won't Work -- Closes After Loading

    When I try to test my map, after it finishes loading, one or two seconds into the game, it closes. Do you know what it might be? If it's a trigger, I only have one on, and that is this: Starting Game Events Time - Elapsed game time is 1.00 seconds Conditions Actions...

    Spell Craziness

    I'm no expert, but if one unit has both I think it will cast both spells because they have the same order ID. Going more in depth, the game uses mini triggers to get a unit to cast spells, so when they have the same order ID, it casts both. (All in theory)
