# Integer Madness

I am making a soccer game. When the ball enters the net, the person who scored the goal gets a point as well as the team (both shown on the leaderboard). But when i test and score a goal, it gives the player who scored +2 points, as well as the team. Not cool. here are my triggers.

Scoring Trigger.

Code:
``````Events - Unit - A unit enters South Net <gen>

Conditions - (Entering unit) Equal to Ball 0002 <gen>
(Owner of Kicker) Equal to Player 1 (Red)

Actions - Unit - Move Ball 0002 <gen> instantly to (Center of Outta here <gen>)
Set Score[(Player number of (Owner of Kicker))] = (Score[(Player number of (Owner of Kicker))] + 1)
Set Score[1] = (Score[1] + 1)
Trigger - Run [b]Runnable[/b] <gen> (checking conditions)``````
here is that Runnable[b/] trigger, that refreshes the leaderboard.
Code:
``````Events - none

Conditions - none

Actions - Leaderboard - Change the value for Player 1 (Red) in Leader to Score[(Player number of Player 1 (Red))]
Leaderboard - Change the value for Player 2 (Blue) in Leader to Score[(Player number of Player 2 (Blue))]
Leaderboard - Change the value for Player 3 (Teal) in Leader to Score[(Player number of Player 3 (Teal))]
Leaderboard - Change the value for Player 4 (Purple) in Leader to Score[(Player number of Player 4 (Purple))]
Leaderboard - Change the value for Player 5 (Yellow) in Leader to Score[(Player number of Player 5 (Yellow))]
Leaderboard - Change the value for Player 6 (Orange) in Leader to Score[(Player number of Player 6 (Orange))]
Leaderboard - Change the value for Player 8 (Pink) in Leader to Score[1]
Leaderboard - Change the value for Player 9 (Gray) in Leader to Score[2]
Leaderboard - Change the color of the label for Player 8 (Pink) in Leader to (100.00%, 0.00%, 0.00%) with 0.00% transparency
Leaderboard - Change the color of the label for Player 9 (Gray) in Leader to (0.00%, 0.00%, 100.00%) with 0.00% transparency
Leaderboard - Change the color of the value for Player 8 (Pink) in Leader to (100.00%, 100.00%, 0.00%) with 0.00% transparency
Leaderboard - Change the color of the value for Player 9 (Gray) in Leader to (100.00%, 0.00%, 0.00%) with 100.00% transparency``````
looks fine to me, but wc3 disagrees (rhyme)

You changed the score of player red and blue twice.

And in your first trigger it only allows a score if the kicker is owned by player red which negates the purpose of having subnumbers that use the player number of a player.

Im confused.

Im sorry that this "bump" is one hour sh of being 24 hours, but this is quite an important part of my map, and id really like to get the basic core functions finished. I do not understand what is wrong! I could psot my map if anyone would liek me to.

Appears to be a logic error to me. You will want to rethink how you set the scoring trigger up.

First off, the conditions. Owner of kicker can only ever be player 1. Is this correct? It looks to me that there should be more to it than that, especially if it's a multiplayer soccer game.

Especially since you further allude that the OWNER of kicker should receive the goal. In only one possibility could a point be awarded - when the OWNER is player 1 (red), so, at some level here, it looks like your condition and your actions have different intents.

Now, in the actions, it awards two points:
1 point to the scoring player (owner of kicker)
1 point to player 1 (score[1])

And of course, only player 1 can EVER score.

So there's definitely something amiss there. Maybe if you explain to me how you wish the intended functionality to work I can give you something a little more workable.

sorry, the "owner of unit is equal to player one is a typo"

this is what it is and still doesnt work.

((Owner of Kicker) is an ally of Player 1 (Red)) Equal to True

• Ill attach my map, it would be much easier.

Not for me, because I'm at work

You aren't by chance using Score[1] as the score for the team would you?

Because if you are Player 1 (Red) and you score a goal, not only will Score[1] receive a point, but Score[Player 1 - Red] will receive an additional point.

If Score[1] is the team score I suggest you move that to somewhere else.

I have a GIF though

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:
What do we do with the Home page?
• Ghan:
I added those forums to the filter for that widget.
• tom_mai78101:
Oh nice. They're back. Thanks.
• tom_mai78101:
Now I think it makes more sense for me to put news in their own subforums, without worry.
• 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:
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:
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:
What if you move the permanent redirect, not the thread?
• 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:
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.
