Help to remove Patrol, Hold Position and Move buttons from a hero. I beg you please

I need a room for spells and I was trying to do this for a while already, all forum threads asking the same question I could find through Google are of no avail. "call UnitRemoveAbility(unit, 'Amov')" or "call UnitRemoveAbilityBJ( 'Amov', unit)" doesn't seem to work (or at list I can't make it work).

Although I found maps that have those order buttons removed:

http://www.hiveworkshop.com/forums/maps-564/blades-n-gore-ii-v0-99h-211054/

Blade 'n Gore custom script has 20k lines and CS Village has 42k so I don't know how do I even search for it there. what should I do? Please help.

P.S. I can upload deprotected versions of those maps if you need to see them in world editor.

So I found the solution to this problem + perfect arrow key controls:

As far as I know, they can't be removed if you want to retain their functions. Removing move button will make your unit unmovable. Same goes for attack.

CS village was removed because it uses arrow keys? So the units do not require all the move/patrol buttons.

Not sure about Blades and Gores though. I'm thinking they are still the move/patrol buttons. Only the icons are changed. That's all.

"call UnitRemoveAbilityBJ( 'Amov', unit)"
The above line works. Maybe you used it wrongly?

Do this to remove move ability from triggering unit:
call UnitRemoveAbilityBJ( 'Amov', GetTriggerUnit() )

I know how to make a hero walk with arrow keys, that's easy, no need for custom scripts at all, here's the tutorial:
so how do I remove those buttons? :(

There's this tutorial, which tells you how to change the properties (positions, tooltips etc.) of the default commands.

This map has Patrol "removed" by making the Move command stack onto Attack, and Patrol takes on the role of Move.

Trigger:
  • Custom script: call UnitRemoveAbility(udg_TempUnit, 'Amov')
This line removes Move, Patrol and Hold Position for TempUnit, a global unit variable.

P.S. I can upload deprotected versions of those maps if you need to see them in world editor.
No. We don't like deprotection.

Alternatively you could give your unit the Ward classification, to remove all icons aside from abilities.

    cool! do you have a video?

    I have a GIF though
  • tom_mai78101 tom_mai78101:
    In the GIF, I've configured it so the lower the "Main Value" is, the better. I had to compress it pretty far down though.

    Hmm, about the Headline News, I noticed threads are being moved into the subforum (Health News, Environmental News, etc.). When that happens, the TH Forum Home page loses the articles, and instead would show old articles posted 1 or 2 weeks ago.
  • tom_mai78101 tom_mai78101:
    What do we do with the Home page?
  • Ghan Ghan:
    I added those forums to the filter for that widget.
  • tom_mai78101 tom_mai78101:
    Oh nice. They're back. Thanks.
  • tom_mai78101 tom_mai78101:
    Now I think it makes more sense for me to put news in their own subforums, without worry.
  • The Helper The Helper:
    Awesome Ghan thanks! I was purposely not moving the first 15 news articles in Headline news to the different subforums but I guess I don't have to do that now?
  • tom_mai78101 tom_mai78101:
    Question: Is there a way to remove thread redirects? It creates a copy of the moved thread and takes up space, and I am leaning towards wanting to remove them in the Headline News. But if they have an expiration date, I guess I'm fine with it.
  • The Helper The Helper:
    If you move a thread please leave a permanent redirect. You can delete any redirects after 6 months. The redirects are left to help Search Engines find the moved content.
  • tom_mai78101 tom_mai78101:
    What if you move the permanent redirect, not the thread?
  • The Helper The Helper:
    I think that works but I have not messed with it. You can delete redirects though if you have to that will not delete the original thread
  • The Helper The Helper:
    if a redirect ends up in the same forum as the post it goes to though I think the redirect drops or fails or something but they are not bugged out and when you are working on an indirect the original post is safe.
