    New script errors with patch 1.5

    Items and Inventories.

    1. My goal: Heroes can carry only 1 of each item class/type. They can carry only 1 weapon, 1 armor, 1 helm, 1 ring....etc. I've seen rpg maps where they've done this. I'm trying to achieve something like Ace's Item Restrictions, but I want a vJass system that is efficient and can handle...

    Buy or build a new computer?

    I'm looking to get a new computer in the next few weeks. I'm still using a 2 year old Acer laptop, it has served me well, but I've outgrown it. I'll use it mostly for gaming, such as Diablo 3, Starcraft 2, SW:ToR, etc. And other general computer stuff. My budget is probably between 600-900...

    [Discussion] Item Stats

    I'm developing my item system for an RPG, I have 3 "tiers" of items: Basic, Enchanted and Legendary. I have several hero classes, but I don't want them all just using the same items. It doesn't make sense for a ranged class to use a sword as their main weapon, so I'm trying to figure out how...
