Charge-Slash 2.0v

Hello! I present you : Charge-Slash. I have seen other charge spells, but mine is different - mine has acceleration for the speed (for both moving and animation speed), it also has a slash at the end of the charge. It's MUI and i think it's leakless.

Spell description : Charge at the enemy. With each passing moment, you begin to gain speed. When you get to your target, you slash it with lightning speed, you deal damage and you stun it for 1 second. Level 1 - 100 damage, 700 units cast range. Level 2 - 200 damage, 1000 units cast range. Level 3 - 300 damage, 1300 units cast range. You can't charge if you are within 300 units of your target tough.

Comment, rate, give credits if you use. :)

  • Leak
    • Game - Display to (All players controlled by a ((Owner of CCaster[CArray]) controller) player) the text: ...
  • You should do the distance check as early as possible in the cast trigger to avoid useless actions
  • Don't use arrays for the locations
  • Some locations are not correctly removed in the looping trigger
  • Add importing instructions into the map file
  • The looping trigger is never turned off
The caster can get stuck on deep water and can charge through cliffs and buildings. Maybe these things are intended, but getting stuck on water could be an issue.

@Maker - i thought i should not destroy the force because i don't use it when CWait is less than or equal to 0 and i have never used it before in the trigger. :? I have used it only when i have to erm... send a game message to that force (when the hero is too close to his target (in the cast trigger) and when there is a cliff or deep water (later in the trigger)). Please, tell me if i'm wrong so that i can update the map spell. :)

Thank you!

Very nice ability, only problem i've had with it is that it isn't blocked by pathing blockers? Both ground and air.

How do you use this? I started coding the triggers and what not, but when I got to the part where it says "(Ability being cast) Equal to Charge", it stumped me. There is no "Charge" variable. There's a "Charge Gold and Lumber" variable, but that's not it. It almost seems like you have to create the the spell itself first before writing the triggers, but how can you do that if there's no already existing spell to base it off of?

You are supposed to copy from the test map, buffs (when there are buffs) then spells, then Dummy units, then you tick the "Automatically create unknown variable while pasting trigger data" (found in File - Preferences) and finally you can either write it line by line, or just copy the whole trigger then configure it in that order. (I think)
