    THX !! =)
    It did gave me a lot of work to do =)
    Btw, i also clicked the "feed me" link =). I make no idea what that is, but i did it lol.

    I am pondering the chance of posting here a JASS tutorial. Also a system to select heroes, very similar to Vexorian's one. But i still don't know.

    Yeah, it helped me through :)
    Make a tutorial with 'Variables' - If you're able to..
    I don't really understand about GUI & JASS features :p

    It's good to know that my work helped =).
    Well, Variables complicate things a lot for new people, that's why I decided to exclude them from my tutorial.
    To create this tutorial I evaluated many maps, including dota, and I know that most of the stuff they do can be created with no variables(like repick option per example).

    However the level of memory increases with the level of simplicity (it shouldn't be this way but it is lol). If I make a very simple trigger for player 1 with no variables, I will have to repeat that same trigger 8, 9 10 times to make all players able to use it.

    Variables can be useful for such a purpose (saving memory).
    However, my point here is not the memory, is that everyone (even those who never opened the world editor) can create a Hero Tavern in the most simple and easy way.

    My tutorial is perfect for a start, but if you want to learn more about JASS and GUI variables I recommend you read some tutorials or download an opened version of dota.

    Oh and btw, Merry Christmas and happy new year.

    Thx =). It is good to know we can actually help =).
    Remember to give +rep as well lol.

    It seems that people actually like this tutorial. I may yet upgrade this tutorial to include some well known features like the "-repick" or "-random" options.
    But i still don't know, i don't much time actually.

    Mmm, no problem pandarian, we already fixed Larhalt's problem when i spoke with him by msn a few days ago.
    About your problem, it is now complicated.
    I don't know how to do it yet, but i shall teach you how to do it once i find time to.

    EDIT
    I am sorry to say i don't have time to update the tutorial neither to help you as i would like to.
    However, you may like to see this template, i am sure it will help

    that depends on the file you want to import.
    If you want to import an icon, than read me icon tutorial, there is everything explained there.
    However if it is a skin or a model, you'll have to look for tutorials, because i don't talk much about those.
