Areal Shackle - removing the animation and adding new?

So it's been a year or two since I last tinkered with world editor but I got hooked up again. Anyways, I'm trying to make an ability, kinda like pudges dismember (DotA). However I can't get rid of the areal shackle animation, how do I do that?
Also I want to have a "gore" effect to show while the target is "shackled".
It may be a simple question but I don't know, might be because I've been gone for so long ;)

IMO, Pudge's hook is much more complicated than you make it out to be ._.

For the gore effect, Shackles give a buff, change the buff effect to the gore models that WC3 offers
Aerial shackles is a lightning effect, just look for that field and empty it, I believe

You've misunderstood me. What I'm trying to make is pudges dismember. It's simply based off areal shackle, however I can't get the animations to change.

EDIT: Regarding the buffs, I've deleted all the buffs, but there is still a shackle animation on the target.

Oh, shet.
Sorry for the screw up.

I mixed up hook and dismember for some reason ._.
The shackle animation comes from one of the art effects, I believe.

He's right. I dont understand anything.
What I'm trying to make is Pudges dismember ability (from dota) which is based off areal shackles. However I can't change the areal shackle s animation from the spell, even thought I've deleted all buffs.

Okay but the wierd thing about it is the fact that I've deleted all buffs and effects, and yet it still shows areal shackles effect on the target unit.
Default, there are no art effects on areal shackles btw.

I closed WE a long time ago, so I didn't know =x
Sorry

Go to the aerial shackles buff under the "Buffs" tab
Change the Art-Target Field and remove the model file

You can change it to a gore model for the gore effect.
WC3 has hard-coded the spell to have that buff if no user-defined buff exists in that field

So, remove all buffs from the aerial shackles spell

and chng the model from the buff's Art - Target field

Okay so what I've done is I've removed everything from the ability itself.
I have changed the art - target of the buff to Demon Hunter <special> and now it doesn't give the areal shackle animation anymore, but it gives the "gore animation" which is great. However I can't get the animation to loop. It only displays when the spell begins and then it doesnt show anymore.

    You need to buy a laptop that supports external GPUs for this.
  • tom_mai78101 tom_mai78101:
    I'm pretty lucky to get myself an Alienware 15 with RTX 2070.
  • Varine Varine:
    I think I'm moving back up north for the summer, I got offered my job as the tournant chef back and I'm tired of struggling down here, it pays like twice as much too
  • Varine Varine:
    I think imma give four or five weeks of notice today to my boss, and see how much that backfires on me. I know he's struggling to hire anyone though, so it's like, do a couple weeks of interviews with me and then we'll have two or three weeks to train someone to take over for me. Hopefully he doesn't fucking let me go in like two weeks cuz that would really fuck me up right now
  • tom_mai78101 tom_mai78101:
    Wouldn't it be better if you give 3 to 4 weeks of notice? So that, at least you are guaranteed for 1 more week of paycheck to hold you over?
  • tom_mai78101 tom_mai78101:
    By the way, where are you moving to?
  • Varine Varine:
    Back to Idaho for the summer, then maybe Houston in August or so, my girlfriend or whatever we are loved it there
  • Varine Varine:
    I'm not sure yet, but my parents need some help cuz they're getting older and my mom has MS so can't do much anymore, so I'll be able to get their property fixed up so they can sell their other house. And the resort is stoked to have me back for the summer, cuz they always struggle with staff.
  • Varine Varine:
    I think it'll be alright, even if they cut me loose a bit early I do have some money and I know plenty of people that will lend me the few hundred bucks to get up there. I'm just catching up after last year still, if I have to kite some bills for a couple weeks it'll be fine.
  • Varine Varine:
    I hate my job but I do like one of my bosses, he does try really hard to get me what I need, and I want to make sure I leave with them comfortable with a new manager
  • Varine Varine:
    I like my coworkers for the most part too as much as I bitch about them, they just aren't reliable. As kids tend to be, I was a shithead at 19 and 20 too I'm sure, so
  • tom_mai78101 tom_mai78101:
    Good luck on getting things going.
  • Varine Varine:
    Eh, it'll be fine, I got it mostly planned out already. Roommates know, boss will know in about an hour when I go to work, I'll have a plane booked once we decide my last day, and I have a place to stay up there lined up for two or three months
  • Varine Varine:
    That all came together surprisingly easily
  • Varine Varine:
    I think I'm going to give 4 weeks, so that'll give me 2 more full checks probably, and then one more coming after I leave.
    +1
  • Varine Varine:
    All that shit came together really well suprisingly. My boss was upset cuz I am really good at my job suprisingly, but he's stoked that he got 4 weeks, plus one or two if he needs it, my flight's book in mid June, but I start my new job almost immediately so it'll be nice to have some time to chill and pack and get my rooms cleaned out. He actually gave me a dollar raise right after I gave notice to thank me for not being short or just leaving and making sure I can help interview and train someone to replace me. He is really cool, his food truck has just been a nightmare to run. I get my vaccine next week finally, allegedly Idaho will let me have my license back when I get there, and I have all my bills up to date so it should be an easy move this time around.
  • Varine Varine:
    Is anyone else getting server timeouts in the chat? I think it's on my end, my wifi adapter has been acting up recently
  • Varine Varine:
    100% my end, idk what it is though.
  • tom_mai78101 tom_mai78101:
    Just woke up. No idea.
  • jonas jonas:
    sounds great :) have fun in Idaho
  • The Helper The Helper:
    freaking Idaho
  • Varine Varine:
    Yeah it sucks up there, but it'll be a bit easier for the summer probably.
  • The Helper The Helper:
    When you get to Houston you will have your pick there is a huge shortage of good people to work in your field here. They are hiring everywhere and Texas is pretty much fully open.
  • The Helper The Helper:
    for anyone else following this yes I am in Houston so Varine and I will RL meet gotta love it! Looking forward to it!
  • jonas jonas:
    awesome
