Hello,
Guys could someone please help me?
I have a trigger for "evolving a monster"
it's working fine, the monster is evolving and stuff.
But i want the effect to last longer... and some monsters doesnt have the origin point to attack the effect.
So what I need is in the second trigger :
  • monster pause and get invulnerable
  • show the first Effect for 3seconds
  • change the monster
  • pause the new monster and get it invulnerable
  • show the second effect for 3 seconds
  • unpause and turn the new monster vulnerable
  • I need that for multiplay and for multiple units for the same player
so basically 3 monsters of the same player can evolve at the same time
or 3 players can evolve at the same time...
and every monster (with or without the origin point) can have the effect.

What should I add to the triggers bellow to get that??

This looks weird:
  • PlayerHeroes[IndexPlayer[(Integer A)]]
You shouldn't ever need an IndexPlayer variable when the Convert Player to Index function exists. But that's besides the point, you can just reference PlayerHeroes[PNEvo] here. You also seem to be referencing both PN and PNEvo. Use one or the other, I don't think PN is even Set anywhere.

For the Special Effect, just create it at the unit's Position and Set the Height to your desired value.

Well it's working just fine, the part of PN and PNEvo is because there is other triggers that use PN so I dont want them to get mixed...
The thing I want is to implement some kind of countdown for the effect.
start effect 1 - stop unit, turn it invulnerable - wait for 2 seconds.
remove unit 1 - create unit 2 - start effect 2 over unit 2, stop unit, turn it invulnerable - wait more 2 seconds.
turn it vulnerable and resume the unit.
I need that for multiplayer... :X

I'm saying that you should use one or the other, not both. If PN isn't set in that trigger then you're counting on it being the correct value from a previous trigger. So who is to say that PN is even equal to the correct value? Sure, in singleplayer tests things will work fine, but that's because you're the only player that PN will ever get set to.

Long story short: You don't want to use PN in that trigger, you only want to use PNEvo. Replace all instances of PN with PNEvo.

Anyway, I attached a map with a GUI friendly Timer system that I made which can help you make MUI effects with Waits.

There's also this system which could be better I haven't tried it yet: [GUI-friendly] Timer System

I tried to make mine as user friendly as possible with a lot of examples.

What you need to do:
A unit gains a level -> If level is >= evolve level -> Proceed with the initial evolve stuff and start a 2 second timer using one of these timer systems.

When that timer expires you will proceed with the next part of the evolve process and start another 2 second timer.

When that final timer expires you will finish everything (unpause/vulnerable).

If using my system you would use the TS_StartOneUnit and possibly TS_StartTwoUnits functions.
