    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

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

    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?
