A useful tool for creating custom damage types.

***********************************************************************
*
*   function UnitDamageTargetEx takes unit source, unit target, real amount, 
*   integer damageType, boolean considerArmor returns nothing
*       -   Deals custom type damage, will fire functions registered to
*       -   it.
*
***********************************************************************
*
*   struct DamageType
*
*       -   Creates custom damage types that are evaluated only when
*       -   dealt through the UnitDamageTargetEx function.
*
*       static method create takes nothing returns DamageType
*           -   Creates a new damage type.
*       method register takes code func returns triggercondition
*           -   Registers the function to the damage type.
*       method unregister takes triggercondition whichCondition returns nothing
*           -   Unregisters the function from the damage type.
*
***********************************************************************
    
This needs to be a textmacro in order to keep the encapsulation correct
and private within the Damage library. Consider this textmacro private.

**********************************************************************/

//! textmacro DAMAGE_TYPE_EX1
    globals
        private trigger array DamageTypeTrig
        private integer       DamageTypeEvent = 0
    endglobals
    
    //*********************************************************************
    //  This function will make damage dealt pass through the custom damage
    //  type's filter.
    function UnitDamageTargetEx takes unit source, unit target, real amount, integer damageType, boolean considerArmor returns nothing
        local integer prevType=DamageTypeEvent
        set DamageTypeEvent=damageType
        if considerArmor then
            call UnitDamageTarget(source,target,amount,true,false,ATTACK_TYPE_CHAOS,DAMAGE_TYPE_NORMAL,null)
        else
            call UnitDamageTarget(source,target,amount,true,false,ATTACK_TYPE_CHAOS,DAMAGE_TYPE_UNIVERSAL,null)
        endif
        set DamageTypeEvent=prevType
    endfunction
    
    struct DamageType extends array
        private static thistype size = 0
        
        //*********************************************************************
        //  Only the corresponding trigger created for the damage type will be
        //  evaluated once the damage is dealt.
        static method create takes nothing returns thistype
            set size=size+1
            set DamageTypeTrig[size]=CreateTrigger()
            return size
        endmethod
        
        method register takes code func returns triggercondition
            return TriggerAddCondition(DamageTypeTrig[this],Filter(func))
        endmethod
        
        method unregister takes triggercondition whichCondition returns nothing
            call TriggerRemoveCondition(DamageTypeTrig[this],whichCondition)
        endmethod
    endstruct
//! endtextmacro

//! textmacro DAMAGE_TYPE_EX2

    //*********************************************************************
    //  Fires the trigger using the custom damage type as an array index.
    call TriggerEvaluate(DamageTypeTrig[DamageTypeEvent])
//! endtextmacro
endlibrary

vJass errors are legion
I imagine the importing instructions require the user to delete Jesus4Lyf's UDTEx, and implement these textmacros instead.

Why not have the importing instructions already documented?

I'll add implementation instructions to the main library explaining why you should remove J4L's Damage from your map

    My boyfriend is super into Bethesda modding so I'm probably going to join him in that for a bit, then move on to making mobile/browser games.
  • C Cherry.Grove:
    I mostly just want to look at my old projects because I know I posted uploads on here somewhere.
  • C Cherry.Grove:
    My one game was basically Among Us but you sabotaged an entire medieval city simulated drastically inefficiently with dynamic NPCs :S
  • C Cherry.Grove:
    of course I never finished it x D
  • jonas jonas:
    xD
  • jonas jonas:
    I think you can still run the original game, just there's a chance your map won't work with the newer patches
  • jonas jonas:
    what development framework have you been looking at for mobile development?
  • jonas jonas:
    I'm currently creating (as a hobby) a space invaders like game for mobile using Xamarin, after starting a few larger projects that I also may not have finished :rolleyes::p
  • The Helper The Helper:
    Awesome! you should look at the Atari VCS platform it does not have a huge user base but the one it has is super active at around 11k and they have no games in there store
  • The Helper The Helper:
    basically it is linux
  • The Helper The Helper:
    OMG it is BanLord as Blackveiled on the forum
  • The Helper The Helper:
    what is up buddy
  • jonas jonas:
    thanks for the tip, that sounds cool. Never heard about the VCS before but seems like it should be a good match
  • tom_mai78101 tom_mai78101:
    The winter vacation left a toll on me. I missed staying up late and sleeping in late.
  • C Cherry.Grove:
    i haven't looked into it yet
  • C Cherry.Grove:
    If I could use something Python compatible it would save me some learning
  • C Cherry.Grove:
    But Unity might be easiest
  • C Cherry.Grove:
    looking at old posts here makes me happy. Makes me be all like "wow I was pretty smart in 2009"
  • C Cherry.Grove:
    mostly failing at life through adulthood really demotivated me for a while
  • C Cherry.Grove:
    ....what I don't get is why the fuck they would force us to permanently convert to a version of the game everyone fucking hated : \
  • C Cherry.Grove:
    Raid Shadow Legends texture pack smh
  • jonas jonas:
    Most people fail at life throughout their adulthood. Sometimes we get to learn from it. Usually it just feels like crap.

    What does not kill you makes you stronger is what they say
