    Video Game Addiction

    The issue of video game addiction, especially to MMORPGs like WoW and EverQuest, has been given increasing attention by researchers as well as the media (see this recent thread). The opinion among gamers seems to be that it either doesn't exist or is much less prevalent than it is made out to...

    Channel Cast Animation?

    If I create an ability based on Channel with a Follow Through Time of 0.0, the animation will not play fully when the ability is cast (it will stop playing at the cast point). Is there any way to fix this without changing the Follow Through Time?

    Taking Spell/Misc Requests

    Like we haven't had any of these before, right? Points: You may request a spell or some other sort of system/code. The more you expect, the less you receive (i.e. don't post large of unnecessarily complex requests). Requests may be completed in Jass or vJass. I will try to make things...

    Amazing 64k Demo.

    Chaos Theory is a 64k intro by a Hungarian demogroup. I don't usually follow the demoscene, but this is probably the coolest thing I have ever seen. You can download it here. If you suffer from .exephobia, you can still watch it on youtube, but that really doesn't do it justice.

    Change unit base damage?

    I know this is possible, it is used in the HeroCraft map. I need to know how to, without using upgrades or stat changes, change the base damage of a hero. I'm guessing there is no "SetUnitBaseDamage" function, but is there an item power up ability or such that can achieve this? Edit: Oops...

    System Event Broadcaster

    I previously had a bulky and non-dynamic system which could perform this sort of stuff, but this one is better. You can attach functions to an "event" string, and then you can broadcast the event in order to call all functions associated with it. Pros: 1. Dynamic - can attach or remove...

    I have some "cart" units that I'm moving along a single axis. They can have differing weights and speeds, but I have no idea how to calculate the transfer of momentum between colliding carts. The track is frictionless. Does anyone know a simple formula for figuring out the energy exchanged...

    Dynamic Hero Skills?

    I would like to be able to add random hero skills, using triggers, that function as normal hero skills would had they been added using the object editor (you can level them up by spending skill points, for example). I have tried a few things, but have been so far unsuccessful. If the you've...
