The Souls of Paradise (Map)

I don't think the Escape/Maze fits the map but well, if you extrapolate. 1. Since the camera is locked, I feel like it should change accordingly in some places to avoid visualizing the hero being blocked by doodads or whatever gets in the way/screen....
deepstrasz
Create a camera and set the height to the a higher value. Then use the Cinematic Action triggers and apply that camera and then lock it. [ATTACH] It's not hard at all. You just use the Action: Hero->Revive Hero Instantly. You can open the doors...
deepstrasz
Started the game and pressed ESC during the first cinematic: -if you press DELETE/DEL, the camera gets down again. -Revenants appeared without all skeletons being destroyed. -the Golem boss could be attacked from out the zone as the hero wasn't...

    Well, maps should not have always the use of playing, maybe someone would need something of the terrain, something of triggers, etc. Those who would steal my map(or others' work), they are not the real WC3 modders and I don't know what to say to them... I'll just try to detect them if possible.

    I don't think the Escape/Maze fits the map but well, if you extrapolate.

    1. Since the camera is locked, I feel like it should change accordingly in some places to avoid visualizing the hero being blocked by doodads or whatever gets in the way/screen.
    2. There should not be things discovered on the minimap.
    3. The camera isn't properly positioned in that the hero might shoot at enemies that aren't on the screen but beyond its borders.
    4. Ice Shards has the same hotkey as Attack: a.
    5. Not sure if intended or not but you can get back to the cloudy/air space where the big Golem and its three minions were after you get teleported out.
    6. You should either use remove unit to avoid having double heroes with one being dead or just use the revive hero trigger which will also keep the CTRL+number group. Plus, my Potion of Greater Healing was replaced by a normal Potion of Healing.
    7. Killed only the two voidwalkers near the purple circle without the one on the right/east. The purple circle could then be taken without the hero being paused like on previous circles.
    8. Shouldn't Ice Shards freeze/slow?
    9. HP should be restored to full at the start of a boss battle.
    10. You can take the darkness fragment during the boss fight and it will give you the spell.
    11. Opening the second gate, after beating the darkness boss, will not pause the hero.
    12. Avoid playing music through the sound channel. Use the other Play Music trigger.
    13. Disable (Player Properties) abilities which aren't supposed to be used (like Cannibalize, Unholy Frenzy etc.).
    14. Capturing the yellow circle where the many Ghouls are doesn't pause the hero.
    15. I feel there should be a faceless one boss too after that miniwar.
    16. Abilities have inconsistent colour description. Some are written in white, others in harder to see gray.
    17. You can capture the south circle without killing all temptresses and then you can take the ghost fragment.

    It's a nice minigame which can be improved in the aspects of gameplay.
    It does not have game breaking bugs but it does have some which shouldn't be there.
    Credits aren't shown in the tab (thread description).

    Awaiting Update.

    ===============================================================

    Always check/recheck the Map Submission Rules! (Map Submission Rules)

    Screenshots could attract more players to download your work. Make the best of them.

    A credits list is required where the names of the resource (models, skins, icons, spells, sound etc.) authors are mentioned along with the specific resource. It would be a luxury to have links leading to the used resources. Credits in the Quest Log would be appreciated.

    A detailed changelog in the first post would be helpful to reviewers and notify fans about the newest implementations to your map.

    To make your work run smoother, fix the so called leaks: Triggers - Memory Leaks and Custom Scripts

    I don't think this is a problem. Most of the times this issue doesn't happen.
    Fixed.
    The hero will kill them however. It's not a big issue imo. Plus, I don't know how to fix it.
    Fixed.
    Nothing important. Yes, you can go back, what's the problem? :]
    I tried but it had many bugs and it is hard to do. I think having double heroes is much more easier.
    Fixed.
    What do you mean?
    Fixed.
    It's a hive spell. I don't know how add an slow variable.
    Done.
    Fixed.
    What do you mean?
    Done.
    Fixed.
    There is. (Faceless One Terror)
    Fixed.

    Either lower the range of the enemies or set the camera from a higher view.
    I mean that there are two groups of voidwalkers (those nether creatures) and it was not necessary to destroy both groups to be able to convert the circle.
    There are two Play Music triggers. Try the other one.

    It's not hard at all. You just use the Action: Hero->Revive Hero Instantly.

    You can open the doors while the creatures near it attack you and you can't pause/stop the door opening ritual. I suggest you be able to open the gates only after all creatures near it are dead.

    Pressed ESC during the scene where you die and talk to that ghost... well, the camera remained on the spikes and didn't want to follow the hero anymore.

    Awaiting Update.

    Done.
    But I want to play Night Elf Victory. There isn't any music in the other one.
    Done.
    No, you can't open any door without having it's respective fragment. Respective fragment can only be achieved by killing the respective boss, and for killing the boss you should kill all those creatures. And if you kill the boss first, all those creatures will die. So, there are no problems.
    Fixed.

    Actually, after you kill the first boss, three or two more golems appear near the circle to the gate's vicinity.

    Started the game and pressed ESC during the first cinematic:
    -if you press DELETE/DEL, the camera gets down again.
    -Revenants appeared without all skeletons being destroyed.
    -the Golem boss could be attacked from out the zone as the hero wasn't teleported there.

    Restarted:
    -pressing ESC should not do anything if not in a cinematic scene. You need to set a Bolean variable false or true like:
    A player skips cinematic (=presses ESC) >CinematicModeOn=True?->Then turn cinematic mode off (etc.)
    A player skips cinematic (=presses ESC) >CinematicModeOn=False?Xx->XxThen turn cinematic mode off (etc.)xX. (xX means the action won't run because the condition is not met).
    -because of the error, you can choose the difficulty again.
    -if you don't press ESC during the start, triggers seem to work correctly.

    Other than that, seems to be going on properly.

    Approved

    Yeah, but I don't know how to prevent this.
    These errors seem to be leaks. I'm still struggling with fixing the location leaks.
    I don't understand. Pressing Esc doesn't do anything except in cinematics.

    There's an event: player presses some key->Key=DEL->Apply camera; lock camera. If I'm not mistaken. Or just force the camera with a periodical: every 0.1 seconds, apply camera; lock camera.
    Try pressing ESC during the intro and then after it move a little and press ESC again. Then proceed to playing the first part of the game.
