    If a unit is moving, its coordinates and the spell target coordinates will not be the same when cast upon its portrait, so your check will be false. Generally, the offset will be less than the unit's collision, though, so I've used
    Code (vJASS):
    IsUnitInRangeXY(GetTriggerUnit(), GetSpellTargetX(), GetSpellTargetY(), 0)
    to check for self-casts.

    Belhammer and Ice Shards look really really nice when you cast them lots of times. Unfortunately, I did not try this out when I was judging. I think if a spell has to be cast lots of times simultaneously in order to realize its potential, perhaps it should have looked like that just from one cast. Maybe I am seeing it wrong.

    Frozen Orb looks pretty wild on a fast computer. Too bad it lags tremendously on lower spec computers.

    I liked Sheep Strike the best visually when I was judging, but I couldn't give it a full score in triggering because of the leaks.

    Thanks to Vengeancekale for making the video.

    Actually in the original game, Ice Shards has no cooldown, the casting is limited by casting speed. By default it is 100% which translates to about once per second. The max is 300%, about three casts per second, which every "sharder" should have :)

    Thanks for hosting the contest, now I have one more spell for my Powerslave map.

    I didn't even realize how bad it lags, my computer has 4 gigs of raam i think. But yeah when you get multiple going, it's a pretty cool effect.

    Having a fast computer is good for you but it's bad for those who have a slow computer ;)

    I have 1GB of RAM and a 1.66 single core intel atom.

    Out of curiosity, did my spell lag for you at all, Bribe?

    I thought so. :xxd:
    It seems impossible for it to lag. :xxd:
    Anyway, thank you for the judging, Bribe. :)
