    Well hello all you fellow map makers who love the game starcraft as much as I do.... Maybe my name will look familiar to some of you, but if not, I am the creator of many, many major maps on Battle.net. I created The cleansing of mageal, Padorath's Return, Dodge the nukes (original), and a few others. I know EVERY trigger and how to manipulate any other triggers to get the result you want. If you need any help.. just ask me, I can help you, and/or create the trigger for you! Either post your problems here or email me @ Expertgamer_01@hotmail.com. Thanx ya'll for your time, and enjoy map making!

    ok

    Ok, thats nice. I have a trigger question. How do you randomize who is affected by a trigger at the game start. I dont know if youve ever played the map <<CHANGELING>> but someone randomly is a changling and has the ability to turn into a broodling/observer/marine(which every1 else is). The changeling is always random, sometimes its play 1 or sometimes its 3, always different. When there are 7 plyrs in the game, theres 2 lings. I am making a map, that i want the triggers to affect a random person, any help is appreciated :p

    erm... ok...

    So... uh how do we know if you really did make it, and if you are, how did you find this forum?

    To answer GARM's question... you need to use some switches. Depending on the amount of people you need 1 switch for every 2 players... I'm a little busy right now to explain so lets see if this Lockdown guy really knows all the triggers like he says he does. :rolleyes:

    Randomizing...

    Ok... heh heh.. this one is real easy. To randomize triggers... Do as follows...
    Condition= Elasped time - 0 seconds.
    Actions = [[Select the set switch trigger, then make 4 of them. Select RANDOM on all of them, so you now have 4 switches that will be randomly turned on or off at the begining of the game. {you can make less if you want for less players, but be carefull, choose how many you use wisely, and be sure to look at every possible combination}]
    Now.. Do something like this...
    p1= Condition s1 is set, s2 is set, s3 is cleared, s4 is cleared.
    Action= ACTION FOR THIS PLAYER...
    p2 Condition s1 is set, s2 is cleared, s3 is set, s4 is cleared.
    Action= ACTION FOR THIS PLAYER...

    (and make however many players you want... make the action the same.. and bingo! When the switch matches one of the players, THAT player will get the randomly chosen action.) happy?

    Oh, I dunno how I ran across this forum.. I guess I just found it.. hehe... My commom name on Battle.net is KillerXXX360 if ya'll wanna play with me sometime...

    Well ciao!

    OK i got a question, im starting a new map , where a dropship goes to a location leaves the players and then it leaves,everything works , but the problem is that the players start fighting, and they are in the same force, for another reason they are created even if they arent in the game, but if they are human players!!:confused: i used a trigger to get them allied but didnt work, checked the allies in the forces but didnt work , it never happened to me and im really confused.

    You need to use a trigger to prevent units being created for players not playing... for the dropships, before the units for the players are made, see how many map revealers (if there is one) and put it in a command condition...

    CONDITION
    (command)
    - Player 1 commands at least 1 map revealer
    ACTION
    (set switch)
    - Set 'player 1 playing'

    Do this with the rest of the players.

    Gwahahaha

    Well ya'll, I already figured out what my problem was with the obstruction things... it really wasnt too many of em, cause I ended up deleting the whole map and it still said it... lol... it was actually a virus in my computer who someone uploaded to me in a map DL. so oh well. My map is back up and running. If yall havnt read my other topic, YES I am lockdown720. Come on Bnet and look me up. Im on nearly every day. 1-8pm Pacific Standard Time. Oh yeah... About the killing allies post.... If the CONTROL of the player is human, but the human is not present in the game, then the computers and humans will auto-unally with that player because it is not controlled by ANYTHING.....soo.. yes, the map revealer thing would work, or any other unit, cause if you set the condition = Commands 1 "anything"... Then if the player isnt there, the trigger wont take effect. If the player is there, it will take effect. So only players present would be affected by the triggers. (hehe, i love triggers).. Anyway, the reason I know triggers so well is that I used to work for Blizzard is helping program starcraft... I know most yall wont believe me, but oh well. Well, if yall need anymore help just ask me! -ciao!

    Those two things just ruined any credibility you may have had because
    1) You can't upload a virus in a map, and
    2) your name doesn't appear in any of the credits for stacraft

    You're trying to impress people who really don't care.
    All anybody cares about is whether you know how to make maps or not. Why don't you just go by that and try starting over again, without all the lies?

    I agree (with swilo)... show us a map you've made but haven't released to the public.

    Well, I cant account for his working for Blizzard. Actually I was just watching the creds(replayed all of sc orig.) and one of the things is StarEdit Help and it gives a list of names. I can account for the virus thing. Its never happened to me, but I know its doable..putting virus on map. Problem is, the map will probably take forever to dl over bnet. Attaching a worm or something like that to a map is very easy, especially with an .exe binder that lets you change the extension to say worm.exe.scx . This will only work if its attached to an actual map though, otherwise sc wont read it. The file size would be well over 1 meg though. No, i didnt just bs all this, i know how to hack...of course i never actually hacked anyone :eek: .

    That right there shows you know nothing about anything, because people who do know about hacking would never admit it so bluntly. Not to mention trying to give people a virus is nowhere near hacking. I wouldn't be the least bit surprised to find out that you're the other guy, still hooked on impressing people.

    And anyway, starcraft wouldn't read the map file if it was really an executable. It would just crash with an error when the game started.
    You'd have to be stupid enough to actually try running the map as an executable, at which point you deserve the virus anyway because map files open in staredit and you;d have to go through a bit of trouble.

    It is possible Swilo, but not through direct maps, through total conversions (But I doubt this guy doesn't even know what a total conversion is anyway). Most total conversions use .exe's to run and it can spread viruses that way.

    Whatever

    Yo idiot, some hackers don't care if they are known about... And yes he did know what he was talking about. I'll search for the site that I tracked the virus back to, it runs off of a program called "starkiller". Its an exe/scm binder program... and its undectable for most people in maps. Oh and by the way, my REAL name is Maxx Marshall, which is why you wouldnt see my name as Lockdown720 in the credits. You really think I would put a stupid name like this as my real name? your a moron then. I dont usually care to prove things to people, but you seem to stupid to believe anything less. Oh yeah, if your all not going to be a little kinder to me, then I might as well leave, cause I was only trying to help you all out.. If you just want to start arguements with me, fine. Im gone.
