You're probably not saving your map properly. Make sure you use the File > Save (Ctrl+S) command before testing your map, otherwise it will save in an incomplete state and will need to be resaved.

Only tested it for a second, but cool..useful.

One thing though...the messages are lame. What I would do is make it easy for users to customize their own messages, maybe in an array so a random message can be picked.

Ex:

Code:
// %kp = killing player
// %dp = dying player
// %ap = assisting player
// and so on..

// users make their own messages...
kill_messages_assist[0] = "%kp has slaughtered %dp with the help of %ap."
...
kill_messages_noassist[0] = "%dp died at %kp's feet."
...

Other than that, there's not much to the system (not a bad thing necessarily). It seems to work, so that's it :thup:

Now that I'm thinking about this, I may do something similar. Not to trump yours of course :p

Well...you're displaying hero kill messages, so in a way it is..

Currently, without editing your system, it becomes unusable if I don't want those particular messages or none at all.

Works well for what it does, but it has limited functionality and customization and thus, less application. I think you mentioned that you made it for yourself, which is fine, but I would change it if I were to release it (and felt like spending a bit more time on it). Just my two cents.

Also: Your test map doesn't compile (in my version of NewGen...not sure if there's a new one). In the library declaration, there's a comma that shouldn't be there.

check the main trigger, or one of them, which is what is showing hero kills (just seeing osmething for assists would be stupid w/o knowing a hero has died), I am pretty sure that is explained somewhere

there's a comma that shouldn't be there.

Vex decided to change the syntax a few releases ago, this hasn't been updated to comply

Works well for what it does, but it has limited functionality and customization and thus, less application

how would you change the assistance message - I feel its optimal, anyone who needs different can easily change that within the system - with a few minutes of work

I only say that because I know there are systems out there that record killing sprees and such, and if I wanted to use this (for assists) and the other, it wouldn't work seamlessly, as there would be messages from both systems on kills/deaths.

Yes, I could edit the message if I wanted, but not everyone can. I just personally like to allow for easy customization :thup:

no there wouldn't - the system only displays assists - try reading it once

btw- i just looked back at the code, and the message is completely customizable.....

What could I do to use my own trigger to print text, move units, calculate multiboards etc. when a unit dies?
