I am try to get a ai to use a custom hero and custom ability's i created. I read the Following:

AI - Basics and Triggers
Tutorial By XXXconanXXX

Introduction

This tutorial shows a wide variety of orders and functions, controlling any unit with no control over a player.

Gettings unit to cast custom abilities

There are 3 ways to go about doing this. The first is using the basic GUI functions, and ordering the unit the order string of the spell. Depending on what type of spell your using, if your usin a no target ability like Locust Swarm, or a targetable ability like blink, then you would use one of the three actions, "Unit - Issue Order Targeting a Point", "Unit - Issue Order Targeting a Unit", "Unit - Issue Order With No Target". So for something like Locust Swarm, we would use the action "Issue Order With No Target; Order <Your Unit> to Undead Crypt Lord - Locust Swarm". For abilities like Frost Nova, we would use "Issue Order Targeting a Unit; Order <Your Unit> to Undead Lich - Frost Nova <Your other Unit>". The other way is to order your unit the Raw Code of the ability, by making a dummy trigger with your functions, and using the action "Issue Order Targeting" with any spell in it's place, then converting it to Custom Text. Then, you would go to the Object Editor, hit ctrl + D, find your spell, and copy that code, then paste it where it has the spell in your dummy trigger.

Lastly, you can go to the AI Editor (Module->AI Editor) and create a new dummy AI Script. Then, you can go to the Object Editor, go to File->Export all Object Data", and go back to the AI Editor. There, you go under Custom Data:" and add your Object Data. YOu can remove all checks, all waves, everything else, then go to File->Add to Map and then it will be in your Import Manager. Then, you can go to the Import Manager (Module->Import Manager) and remove the "AI Data". After that, in your Map Initlization rigger, add the action "Run Melee AI Script" and add your new script there. This will order each computer you have that you ran the script for, custom abilities.

But I Don't understand.I am not a total newb at editor but i would like some clear help that others can use as well with out any problems understanding THX:):thup:.
 
I guess the answer is not here as nobody ever replied to this. It shows up on the logs so it is still a question that is unanswered! Hate that stuff!

    News portal has been retired. Main page of site goes to Headline News forum now
  • The Helper The Helper:
    I am working on getting access to the old news portal under a different URL for those that would rather use that for news before we get a different news view.
  • Ghan Ghan:
    Easily done

  • The Helper The Helper:
    https://www.thehelper.net/pages/news/ is a link to the old news portal - i will integrate it into the interface somewhere when i figure it out
  • Ghan Ghan:
    Need to try something
  • Ghan Ghan:
    Hopefully this won't cause problems.
  • Ghan Ghan:
    Hmm
  • Ghan Ghan:
    I have converted the Headline News forum to an Article type forum. It will now show the top 20 threads with more detail of each thread.
  • Ghan Ghan:
    See how we like that.
  • The Helper The Helper:
    I do not see a way to go past the 1st page of posts on the forum though
  • The Helper The Helper:
    It is OK though for the main page to open up on the forum in the view it was before. As long as the portal has its own URL so it can be viewed that way I do want to try it as a regular forum view for a while
  • Ghan Ghan:
    Yeah I'm not sure what the deal is with the pagination.
  • Ghan Ghan:
    It SHOULD be there so I think it might just be an artifact of having an older style.
  • Ghan Ghan:
    I switched it to a "Standard" article forum. This will show the thread list like normal, but the threads themselves will have the first post set up above the rest of the "comments"
  • The Helper The Helper:
    I don't really get that article forum but I think it is because I have never really seen it used on a multi post thread
  • Ghan Ghan:
    RpNation makes more use of it right now as an example: https://www.rpnation.com/news/

    What do you think Tom?
  • tom_mai78101 tom_mai78101:
    I will have to get used to this.
  • tom_mai78101 tom_mai78101:
    The latest news feed looks good
  • The Helper The Helper:
    I would like to see it again like Ghan had it the first time with pagination though - without the pagination that view will not work but with pagination it just might...
