Hello guys, for some reason my arena system stopped working in my map, and i can't find the reason why,because i haven't changed anything, or using the duel variables somewhere else..
So, my arena system starts when the last boss of the map is killed(i have a hero defense type map) and a little cinematic starts, where boss takes the killing blow from player 1,and after that all players from 1 to 5 argue about "leading the group" and they set up in a last duel where every player is enemy with the other players, when the hero dies, he is removed from the game and a counting shows up (each time after a hero dies) that says how many heroes remained alive, when the number of heroes alive is 1, a little cinematic starts for all players featuring the remained alive hero and then the map ends. But for some reason, the arena group formed by the players heroes, doesn't get recognized by the counting trigger and always shows 0 heroes alive, even if there are 5 or 1..and i tried to do more things, but didn't fixed it yet so i am out of ideas..if someone may know, thanks !

I mention that i use 1.28.5 patch of Wc3

This is the trigger that runs the ending of the cinematic and beginning of the duel

You are referencing to a non-existing event here (there is no event), wherefore all the killing/dying unit conditions and actions are ignored.
You need to move this part into the "Hero Die Arena" trigger to fix the problem.

Hmm, if i do that, i can't run this trigger each time a unit is getting removed from ArenaUnits, to see how many units remain in arena units from "Hero Die Arena"
There is something wrong with the detection of the "ArenaUnits" and i don't understand why..because when i teleport heroes from the cinematic to duel it works and uses the same variable,but suddenly it's like the group get's empty when teleported to arena..

^The if then else part can't trigger, because the event is "
unit.gif
Unit - A unit owned by Player 11 (Dark Green) Is attacked".

Also many triggers can be shortened by quite a bit with the usage of the "for each integer variable" and/or "pick every player/unitgroup" actions.

I would cleanup a lot of that first and double check your events-conditions-action chains carefully.

I tried to separate the duel part from the cinematic trigger,and when i do that, it doesn't even move the heroes to the arena..for some reason, the "ArenaUnits" group get's wrecked and i don't understand why..

Well, I don't even know where to start. Your triggers are a bit messy and all over the place.

The first improvement I would make is to use tavern hero system instead of regions. It's really really simple and needs only one trigger to run.
  • Selecting Hero
    • Events
      • Unit - A unit Sells a unit
    • Conditions
      • ((Sold unit) is A Hero) Equal to True
    • Actions
      • Custom script: local player = udg_Player
      • Custom script: local unit = Soldunit
      • Set VariableSet Player = (Owner of (Buying unit))
      • Game - Display to (All players) for 15.00 seconds the text: ((Name of (Owner of (Buying unit))) + ( has chosen + (|c0020C000 + ((Name of (Sold unit)) + |r))))
      • Selection - Select (Sold unit) for Player
      • Unit - Move (Sold unit) instantly to (Center of HeroStartPoint <gen>)
      • Unit - Kill (Buying unit)
      • Camera - Pan camera for Player to (Center of HeroStartPoint <gen>) over 0.00 seconds

And instead of having PlayerHeroRed, PlayerHeroBlue, etc.

You could add to the Hero Select trigger: Set Integer = Player Number of Player and then use Hero unit variable with index and do: Set Hero[Integer] = (Sold Unit)

Then later you can use this index with a loop to make your triggers more simple instead of this bloated code you are currently stuck with.

I would also combine Hero Arena Die and Arena Victory triggers.

You should remove the first wait from the Arena Victory trigger, I get that you want a wait after the conditions are met to transition to the cinematic event.

Hello, i wanted to transit from a hero choose with whisp into Tavern system, the problem is that, i have 3 specs for each class, like in wow, and with tavern i can't find a way to make it delete the other 2 specs when one spec is chosen..and that's why this messy thing is there..because i want when one player chooses for example mage fire,to delete mage arcane and mage frost from choosing for him and other remained players..

Well the HeroTypes must be made with triggers and then add the hero types into the taverns with triggers.
  • Set HeroType[1] = Mage Arcane
  • Add HeroType[1] to Tavern XXX with stock value 1 and maxium value 1
  • Set HeroType[2] = Mage Fire
  • Add HeroType[2] to Tavern XXX with stock value 1 and maxium value 1
  • Set HeroType[3] = Mage Frost
  • Add HeroType[3] to Tavern XXX with stock value 1 and maxium value 1
A unit won't be removed from the tavern if it is not added there trough the triggers.

There are examples somewhere in the forums :p

This is a frequently asked question.

Yeah, this is where i got close too aswell, the part that i couldn't get into, is to delete the others 2 that were unselected for all players because i can't figure it out, i have 39 heroes, so i do 3 herotypes per hero class,but how does the tavern can be configured out to know exactly which hero type was choosed and delete the others 2 from selection?
Shall i make smth like
-herotypemage[1] [2] [3]
-herotypewarrior[1] [2] [3]
-herotypewarlock[1] [2] [3]
and so on?

If all conditions are true
or (any) conditions
Unittype of Sold Unit equal to
HerotypeMage[1]
HerotypeMage[2]
HerotypeMage[3]
For each HeroInteger from 1 to 3 do actions
Remove HeroType[HeroInteger] from all marketplaces

I know @Uncle has helped with a system like this in the past, but I couldn't find it so maybe he can help you out a bit here :)

ok, i will try smth like this on my own, so i do a condition like this for each herotype, right? because i can't set all heroes to just a herotype variable, and i have to make a herotype variable for each class,as it seems from my view
Or i could do with same variable too and change the integer from 1 to 3 for mage, from 4 to 6 for warrior, from 7 to 10 for warlock and so on,hmm,thanks a lot !

Later Edit:
How can i add the unit to the tavern from triggers? I can't find the function, i use 1.28.5 WE if that might be a problem..
And for some reason, at the "remove herotype[herointeger]" part , it doesn't let me chose a unit-type variable,only units variables.. and the "hero" variable that i used there, is the one from players numbers,i did that just so i can complete the function.

Ohhh, I'm sorry I don't have earlier versions currently, but if it existed back then it should be under "neutral building" and from there "add unit-type to marketplace".

I've done this and works, thanks for the help !
Tommorrow i will start remaking triggers that used the "PlayerTealHero" etc

I'm glad you are getting it to work! :)
Yeah, i am currently working on version 0.4C of my map, i think it will have the biggest update of all until now xD
This hero tavern,already added 3 new heroes and have another 3 in plan, remaking the cinematic triggers because they all use "PlayerRedHero" to refer for players,and duel triggers.
Thanks for the help !
