    I would expect so, since creating those systems is effectively part of your entry - if the supporting systems are flawed, then anything being supported by them, is also flawed. Documentation may be less important to that effect though I'd imagine (they should however probably be posted along with your main spell code). If you're using a pre-existing support made by other people then it can't really be "your fault" for their issues and thus it would be illogical to be "marked off" for them, but since you made them yourself (specifically for your entry), you are responcible for them and their issues.

    Otherwise, you could have a "perfect" spell based off an awful system and "get away" with it

    Also, screenshots don't appear to be visible

    Screenshots in a public album of mine on the hive. Well, then I feel sorry for anyone who made a system prior to this contest using it, because then they're held accountable for it when someone else with the same system isn't. Seems doubled edged. This is more a rules philosophy question. I will go over the other code and eliminate the leaks. I know I leak hashtable entries for how I index units, but that's because I don't use a unit index system, nor care (map example code, versus spell/system code).

    Note that I added the qualifier "specifically for your entry", though frankly I'd hope that any approved system which people can use as bases in order to make their own resources, would lack flaws in the first place (i.e. be held to a higher standard in the main section than individual resources) due to this exact thing.

    Lol, that's me. :p

    Humorously, I'm actually having massive issues fixing it up... I'm using Mana Flare as a base, and it just doesn't work. The triggers can catch the issued order ID "manaflareon" and "manaflareoff"... And I can even do things to the Ordered Unit... Except what I need to do, which is Adding/Removing an Ability.

    Well, doesn't mana flare disable other abilities? There may be an easier way to do what you need.

    It does, and that's kinda what I want (a Channeling spell that disables the caster, has a cooldown, yet can be toggled). With a Duration of 0, it lasts (so far as I can tell) forever, so the toggle just needs to be there.

    Oh, okay. Mayhaps you can't add/remove abilities to the unit during this time? Or, only remove the toggled ability, and any added abilities are added after the toggled spell is toggled again?

    Anyways, might have to trigger more things instead of working at this because of lack of time?

    yesterday i decided to scrap my entry and start a new one, finished half of the spell before the day ended. today I continued working on it and got it to work as intended. tomorrow I'll post 2 wips, one is a screenshot i took after finishing half of the spell, the other Is the partially complete map(not yet cleaned of leaks and commented fully). I can't do it or tell you about it right now because in on my phone and it's really difficult to type.

    Please be a bit more descriptive with your file names.

    e.g.
    Zephyr11GunSlinger21wip1.w3x

    No maps folder deserves a list of Zephyr.w3x, Zephyr (1).w3x, Zephyr (2).w3x
