    Hello. I have ecountered a minor problem (again) where my JNGP World editor cannot show some lightning except Chain Lightning primary and secondary, Finger of Death.
    How Could that be? Is there any solution?

    It can't.
    But if I Played Dota, the effect will show, only just wouldn't show at World Editor and Test map too...

    I had a similar problem but I'm not clear on your exact meaning.

    my problem was that lighting effects placed in game using the region weather setting, wouldn't show in game play.

    I fixed it by making the weather a bird with a changed model file.

    though I guess if you need the effects for an ability you are out of luck I guess

    Its very easy to understand, a lightning is created and draw out by the length of the attacks themselves. You can see that no matter how long or short you set it for any attack range, the lightning line will keep its style repeatively and straight.

    It seems to be a blind point (which is show in editor or test map) but will be lengthened when showing in the real map. That is my theory.
