"For each integer A/B" - what does that mean and how does it work?

It represents an Integer. It is a loop action that runs through the specified number of loops. So if you are doing several actions with sequential numbers, you can use this action to make it easier. Example:

Trigger:
  • For Each Integer A (1 to 10) do Actions -
    • Loop - Actions
      • Set New_Integer = (Integer A)


That will set a new integer variable 10 times. It is the exact same thing as doing this:

Trigger:
  • Actions
    • Set New_Integer = 1
    • Set New_Integer = 2
    • Set New_Integer = 3
    • ...
    • Set New_Integer = 10


NOTE:
The only the thing to remember is that (Integer A) and (Integer B) are global variables, which means that if you use them several times in the same trigger, make sure they do not overlap or they will overwrite each other's data. That's what (Integer B) is for: You can use it inside an (Integer A) loop. Example:

Trigger:
  • For each Integer A (1 to 10) do Actions -
    • Loop - Actions
      • Set New_Integer = (Integer A)
      • For each Integer B (11 to 20) do Actions -
        • Loop - Actions
          • Set Brand_New_Integer = (Integer B)


With that you have 2 variables, one that is set ten times from 1 to 10, and the second is also set 10 times, from 11 to 20. Of course that would be completely useless, but its just an example.

They are especially useful when using arrays, because you can use one loop action to set multiple variables with an array.

There isn't a point, it was just an example of how to use the (Integer A) function. They are useful when dealing with arrays, where you access certain integers that have data, such as Player Numbers, Unit Groups, etc.

He means "What's the point of having integer A/B"

Well it makes it easier to do loops with specifications.

Example:
Player (Integer A)

If you use (For each Integer A from 1 to 12) the Editor will carry out the actions using:
Player (1), Player (2), Player (3), ..... Player (12).

Look for a GUI Mass Impale. It's a great example of how to use integer A/B loops.

As a quick example that states almost exactly what temmerbob and keychup said:

For each (Integer A) from 1 to 12
Loop
Player - Set property - Set gold for Player(Integer A) to X

Trigger:
  • CreateRandom
    • Events
      • Player - Player 1 (Red) skips a cinematic sequence
    • Conditions
    • Actions
      • Set Count = 5
      • For each (Integer A) from 0 to 5, do (Actions)
        • Loop - Actions
          • Set Index[(Integer A)] = (Integer A)
      • For each (Integer B) from 0 to 1, do (Actions)
        • Loop - Actions
          • Set RandomInt = (Random integer number between 0 and Count)
          • Set Point = (Center of Region[Index[RandomInt]])
          • Special Effect - Create a special effect at Point using Abilities\Spells\Human\MarkOfChaos\MarkOfChaosTarget.mdl
          • Special Effect - Destroy (Last created special effect)
          • Custom script: call RemoveLocation(udg_Point)
          • Set Index[RandomInt] = Count
          • Set Count = (Count - 1)


This is script by Dinowc. Integer B is from 0 to 1, any1 know what that means? :)

The (Integer B) from 0 to 1 means that the actions within the loop are going to run twice, the first time with Integer B having a value of 0 and the second time with Integer B having a value of 1. Since Integer B isn't used within the loop, it's simply running the set of actions twice.

Is it the same as
Code:
from 1 to 2
or 
from 5 to 6
?

"I will stand, or I will fall. I will not sit."
They would essentially be the same, they all cause the actions in the loop to be run twice. The only difference would be the value of the Integer B loop within the variable.

    I really do not want to move to California otherwise I might consider it.
  • The Helper The Helper:
    yeah California is not anywhere you really want to live
  • The Helper The Helper:
    That is why I did not take the job Blizzard offered me back in the day, there is no way I could have moved my family there on what they were offering, not even close and that was like 20 years ago
  • The Helper The Helper:
    yeah they wanted me on the tech support team when they did not get me they got one of the next MVPs in Dinobot
  • The Helper The Helper:
    Dinobot was one of the youngest of the MVPs tkron probably could have worked for Blizzard but he had a good job in Chicago doing business programming already
  • The Helper The Helper:
    Dinobot probably still works for Blizzard would love to reconnect with that guy
  • The Helper The Helper:
    I wonder what ever happened to Wargasm?
  • The Helper The Helper:
    This new version of Xenforo really is awesome
  • Ghan Ghan:
    Wargasm is still around. He works for the domain registrar where thehelper.net is kept.

    Is sqrage still around?
  • The Helper The Helper:
    I have not seen him on lately the forum says he was last on 2 years ago

    How are you doing Varine have not seen you around in a minute

    lol I live in CA
  • thewrongvine thewrongvine:
    I've got some friends in animation department who have been applying for Blizzard, doing interviews and such. They said the workplace seems nice, though now it'd be all remote work I suppose
  • The Helper The Helper:
    good for them I live close to Austin and am trying to get my kids interested in getting into Games but not having much luck. I would never let them move to Cali.
  • The Helper The Helper:
    unless it was huge money
  • The Helper The Helper:
    and even then with the taxes I really could never let them move there
  • thewrongvine thewrongvine:
    Haha fair enough, I have no interest in CA at all as a living place either. Really only here just for the work in LA, but hopefully once I get settled enough in my work, I can move out
