    Cannot Join Specified Game (GameRanger)

    No, sadly. I already left a message to them but so far they haven't responded. The issue is still unsolved and I'm just hoping for someone who knows how to solve it to reply to this thread. It's not really a big of a deal since I could just ask other people to host the map that I want for me...

    unable to connect to battle net

    There's a third-party application called Game Ranger that I believe sets up a LAN network to allow you to play Warcraft online - this includes Reign of Chaos. In my experience, people seem to use 1.26 more than any other version but I only play the Frozen Throne expansion so I don't know much...

    Cannot Join Specified Game (GameRanger)

    Well, that's a bit embarassing HAHAHA. I'll be checking it out. Until I solve the issue, I'll be keeping this thread open. Thank you for the reply!

    Cannot Join Specified Game (GameRanger)

    I use GameRanger to play Warcraft 3 Frozen Throne on LAN with other players. Occasionally, a friend and I would use it to test out a custom map that I made. Recently, however, a major issue has appeared. I can join anyone's room and the games that they are hosting in the Warcraft lobby, but the...

    Unit Disguise Spell

    Tried and done but sadly he's still red. Thank you for the reply! UPDATE: It seems to work if I changed the action in a way that he changes into a specific color instead

    Unit Disguise Spell

    I made a unit called a Mercenary Informant that could Disguise himself as an enemy unit (with matching colors) visually that is controlled by the owner of the unit but shows up as a Neutral unit for the enemy (kind of like the Mechanical Critter). Problem is, I don't know how to create an Action...

    [Solved] Tax Reform Upgrade

    I didn't know about this. I'll definitely be experimenting more with arrays, their function, and how to use the said function. Thank you for the help! This has been an INCREDIBLE help! To keep improving my Trigger Editing skills, I promise to not only copy the trigger that you have given but...

    [Solved] Tax Reform Upgrade

    I made a trigger that makes it so that for every House that you build, you earn 100 gold every 30 seconds. Red House Events Unit - A unit owned by Player 1 (Red) Finishes construction Conditions (Unit-type of (Constructed structure)) Equal to House Actions...

    [Solved] Morale System

    I wasn't aware of the Wander ability, it's exactly what I was trying to find when I first conceptualized the Morale System, thank you! I doubt that the players would be able to actually abuse this loophole with all of the micro and macro management going around, but I will definitely patch it up...

    Spell Requiring Nearby Patron

    It would seem that all buildings that require a patron have the Select Unit/Hero ability or the Shop Purchase Item ability. I don't want the Oil Pot to have a nearby patron to sell units nor items so it's still unclear to me how I could make the Pour Oil ability require a patron.

    Spell Requiring Nearby Patron

    I made a Structure unit called the Oil Pot in which could cast a Pour Oil ability (based on Flamestrike) to pour hot, scalding oil that damages anyone who is hit by it severely. I also made it so that this could backfire - if it dies, it would "tip over" and cast the same ability on itself and...

    [Solved] Lingering Special Effect

    I'll see if I can successfully attempt your advice. A question though; is it better to have a "Generic Expiration Timer" than a "Wait"? If so, why? Many thanks for helping! Very useful information! I'll make sure to implement that into My future triggers.

    [Solved] Lingering Special Effect

    So I made a fairly simple custom spell called Sabotage that allows a specific unit-type, the Scout, to cast on a Supply Crate to set it on fire. I used the Rejuvenation skill as a base and changed its stats accordingly. The burning special effect that is supposed to envelop the Supply Crate...

    [Solved] Morale System

    I don't know if it's the most efficient way to do it, but I have succeeded. What I did was make two triggers that split the system in two - one that sends the text "Fleeing" text and changes the unit to a Neutral Passive, and one that causes the now neutral unit to panic and run around before...

    [Solved] Morale System

    So I have developed a Morale System in which units gain/lose mana if they're attacking/getting attacked respectively. If a unit's mana reaches 0, the attacked and the attacking player gets a text stating that their unit/the enemy's unit has fled. They then promptly disappear from the map. I...

    Holy crap. This is the first time I've actually asked for help and I can't believe I didn't think of this sooner. Thank you for the help! Truly appreciated.

    [Solved] Hunger System

    So I've been trying to develop this sort of hunger system in which organic units will take 1 HP of damage every 1 second of game time for the longest time now. So far, this is the trigger that I have come up with: This works fine apart from the fact that literally every single thing with a...
