Changelog

*Reworked nearly every system in the game to improve efficiency and reduce lag.

*Removed ALL waves and replaced them with new counter-parts. There are a total of 32 base wave-type units that have varying abilities. Each wave type is modular - allowing me to add/change/remove existing wave types with ease.

    Game is not possible to save in-between the waves?
    And -save / -load system is made only for credits?

    yes you can save between waves.
    as far as i know yes the save/load system is only for credits so saving after bosses is pretty much all that is needed
    though there is a title system ( which is already in the game since a earlier patch but need a bit of work to work properly )

    Saving doesn't work. We try to when the timer is yellow (no mobs) and the game won't let us. It just keeps playing without being saved.

    it doesn't save your game.
    it juste create a folder where text files will be recorded on your disk drive C://mineralz
    inside that folder each time you -save there will be a new text file but the way it is done won't let you create multiple of the same one
    if you go in there find the -load xxxxxxxx number that is the lowest in the text file so that it is the right one ( you just have to ctr+c it then in game ctr+v to load it ) ( ctr+c = copy and ctr+v = paste )

    if you want to resume a game you started but didnt finish you might want to try the old fashion way that is F10 save game then try loading custom game instead of creating a new one ( can't guarantee it will work since i never saved a moded game )

    hope i answered your question

    I know that -save is there to store credits.
    I want to save a game process via F10. It doesn't do it in multiplayer mode and I didn't verify it on single player mode.

    Hey, please don't quit working on this map. It's honestly the best wc3 map I've ever played and what made me come back to wc3 after a year or so.

    Btw a suggestion I have is to allow shifting a lot of buildings, since every time you shift more than 2 buildings, your character will just work on the one they're currently building, build the next shifted thing then stop.
