  • My Trigger
    • Events
      • Unit - A unit Finishes casting an ability
    • Conditions
      • (Ability being cast) Equal to My Ability
    • Actions
      • Set TempPoint = (Target point of ability being cast)
      • Cinematic - Ping minimap for (All players) at TempPoint for 1.00 seconds
I cast at one point, it pings halfway across the map, in the wrong direction.
The ability is based on Inferno. I use "finishes casting" because i want the trigger to execute when the infernal lands.

i have no Jass experience, so i don't know how to do that... But if it's true that it returns null, then how would i go about creating a trigger that executes when the infernal lands?
"A unit starts the effects of an ability" would need a delay of 1,5 seconds... but it needs to be MUI :/

how you print it is basically use the same event and put in Game - print message (Integer to string(X of point(Target point of ability being cast))) for player 1 - red ...
and the same for Y, if it is 0, 0 or if it didnt even print you are getting invalid values

you could still save the point to some hashtable or w/e and load it when the unit finishes casting using key(Triggering Unit)

Fix'd it by storing point during "starts the effect". Thanks for the help :)

      • Set TempPoint3 = (Target point of ability being cast)
      • Hashtable - Save Handle OfTempPoint3 as (Key targetpoint) of (Key (Triggering unit)) in AbilityTable
  • Explosion Cooldown 2

yeah only with start effect and begin casting/channeling give back the casted spell id, rest can't give back because the ability already shout since unknow time
