Aura giving buff instantly?

You're living only because it's illegal killing.
Create a dummy unit to cast the spell on the unit for, 1-2 seconds.

Well thanks, but I really need an aura for my purposes. Or atleast it would be much simpler, as the buff needs to be there instantly whenever units in range of the aura are revived or if one of the units turn spell immune or something.

I know it's possible since it's used in dota. (e.g buff of Bloodseeker's Rupture is given by an aura.)

What I meant was, use an aura. But since it takes time to register, you should create a dummy unit to cast teh spell, which givews the buff for 1 or 2 seconds, and after the buff is gone, the aura's buff should come in. if you get what I mean.

You could make a trigger to affect all units within range of your unit, you would be able to get the same effect as having an aura, just without the delay of adding or removing the buff.

Godspeed to the sound of the pounding
It's impossible to make a genuine aura act instantly, but you can trigger an aura using a fast period (eg. 0.1s) which will be much more prompt, although not truly instant.

Also, I believe the buff can be applied by giving each unit a self-affecting dummy aura based on Tornado Slow. This is the method used in J4L's BuffStruct and I think he said that self-affecting auras apply instantly.

    "hey tom_mai please do not archive anymore news" ----> Got it. What should we do with the "News Archive" subforum?
  • The Helper The Helper:
    I think leave it for real old news that cannot be sorted the reason we had it in the first place was a server issue that we do not have anymore. I don't want to get rid of the archive just not put anything in it for now until we figure it out more
