    Searched through hive looking for a similar answer but could not find any answer that matched this question.

    Was just wondering if there is a faster way to convert all GUI triggers in a map/campaign than by right-clicking each individual one and converting to custom script.

    If not no problem, was just curious. Thanks~~

    there would be no point in doing this unless u are planing to edit after converting to custom script.

    i dont believe there is a way to do multiple at a time either

    Yeah JASS is only faster if you write it from scratch, because GUI converted to JASS is so horribly bad just editing a few lines would not be nearly enough.

    However doing it for speed reasons can be considered micro optimization. It only really makes a difference after algorithmic improvements at bottlenecks are depleted.

    Maybe. Just swapping out certain BJ functions can save a whole lot of function calls.

    But I get you, restructuring an if then else does not do much performance wise. It just makes it look less like a mess.
