I am working on adding an AOE hex to a tower-defense map. I based it off a triggered-hex another unit has in-game. So far I got the hex to work but cannot force the unit to resume moving again afterwards.
main ability:
JASS:
function Trig_hex_aoe_Conditions takes nothing returns boolean
  return (GetUnitTypeId(GetAttacker())=='o022') and GetUnitState(GetAttacker(),UNIT_STATE_MANA)>100.
endfunction

function hithexc takes nothing returns boolean
   return IsUnitEnemy(GetFilterUnit(),GetOwningPlayer(GetAttacker())) and GetUnitState(GetFilterUnit(),UNIT_STATE_LIFE)>0.405 and (GetUnitAbilityLevel(GetFilterUnit(), 'ACmi') < 1) and (GetUnitAbilityLevel(GetFilterUnit(), 'Bams') < 1)
endfunction

function forcemove2 takes unit u1 returns nothing

call DisplayTextToForce( GetPlayersAll(), "1" )
   set udg_TempPoint = GetRectCenter(udg_Regions[GetUnitUserData(u1)])
   call IssuePointOrderLoc( u1, "move", udg_TempPoint )
   call RemoveLocation(udg_TempPoint)
endfunction
function forcemove2s takes unit u1, integer i returns nothing
local integer tr
call DisplayTextToForce( GetPlayersAll(), "1" )
if IsUnitInGroup(u1, udg_Red) then
   set tr=1
   elseif IsUnitInGroup(u1, udg_Blue) then
   set tr=2
   elseif IsUnitInGroup(u1, udg_Teal) then
   set tr=3
   elseif IsUnitInGroup(u1, udg_Purple) then
   set tr=4
   endif
   call PolledWait(i+0.1)
   set udg_TempPoint = GetRectCenter(udg_SiegeRegions[tr])
   call IssuePointOrderLoc( u1, "attack", udg_TempPoint )
   call RemoveLocation(udg_TempPoint)
endfunction

function hexem takes nothing returns nothing
local unit u=GetEnumUnit()
local unit u2

endfunction

I tried to use the displaytexttoplayersall function to troubleshoot, but now got stuck. I cannot figure out why it displays "0" repeatedly (multiple units in area), but not the "1".

the ability it was based on, in which the move again function does work:
JASS:
function Trig_Hexing_Tower_2_Conditions takes nothing returns boolean
   if not( (GetUnitTypeId(GetAttacker())=='o011') or(GetUnitTypeId(GetAttacker())=='o012') or(GetUnitTypeId(GetAttacker())=='o015') ) then

   endif
   if GetUnitStateSwap(UNIT_STATE_MANA, GetAttacker())&lt;100. then
     return false
  endif
  return true
endfunction

   if IsUnitType(u, UNIT_TYPE_SUMMONED) then
   call UnitDamageTargetBJ(GetAttacker(),u, ( 900.* udg_abp[GetConvertedPlayerId(GetOwningPlayer(GetAttacker()))] ), ATTACK_TYPE_CHAOS, DAMAGE_TYPE_NORMAL )
   else

endfunction
ps. udg_siege is a boolean, game does not give me a syntax error when saving in world editor, and once again the hex itself works, something goes wrong after the display "0" command and the display "1" command does not run.

Thanks in advance for the help

You use

JASS:


in a callback.
Thanks for the tip, unfortunately it only half-fixes my problem.
Removing the wait makes the game message appear properly, but the move still does not work.
I tested the change on the base ability trigger, and removing the wait there made it stop working. It seems I need the delay to get units to obey orders after they have been hexed, simultaneous orders fail.

Any ideas on a workaround? or why the triggersleepaction was ok in the base trigger?

p.s. I already tried using PolledWait and it created the same problem.

Wait before the callback.

or why the triggersleepaction was ok in the base trigger?
Because it was not in a callback.

p.s. I already tried using PolledWait and it created the same problem.
Because it is a TriggerSleepAction.

Maybe you will understand better if you imagine the callback to be executed as a loop. Unit n+1 is only considered once unit n has been completely processed. So if you wait in the callback, then the waits would accumulate, which is certainly not what you want.


Oh, another thing. If you have to do something, then wait; or you have to wait repeatedly, you can use callback, wait, callback; or a timer and a global group/list of groups, where the callback of the timer runs the ForGroup.

Thank you!I had assumed that since the wait was in a different function it would not affect the callforgroup function. but thinking of it as 1 big loop really helped me visualize the problem. I rebuilt the trigger based on more transparent loops and finally got it to work :)

    I'm sorry to hear that bro
  • Varine Varine:
    Not to distract but is anyone aware of any software to help visually impaired people interact with their PC?
  • Varine Varine:
    Also what's the best way to ship a PC? Should I just wrap the fuck out of it in the case or put the components in static bags and wrapped up individually?
  • Ghan Ghan:
    The GPU is the biggest danger typically.
  • Ghan Ghan:
    Some of the pre-built vendors use expanding foam to fill in the case and secure the GPU. Otherwise it might be best to remove it and ship it separately.
  • Ghan Ghan:
    Similar if the machine has a large tower CPU cooler installed. Those can experience huge forces and destroy the socket during shipment if they are heavy.
  • Varine Varine:
    So mainly just the heavier things that jut out? I'm planning on pulling out the SSD's too and anything that I don't have well secured. I'll probably be good leaving the motherboard and PSU screwed in there though if I bundle it up?
  • Ghan Ghan:
    Yeah, I'd expect those to be fine. It's mainly the heavy stuff that is also long/tall where dropping the case would cause it to exert a ton of force on the mount. The motherboard will be fine screwed into the board unless the case itself is somehow severely damaged.
  • Varine Varine:
    I have the original packaging for it, so I was going to just put it back in there
  • Varine Varine:
    I don't think I have the boxes for the components though and so I don't want to have a bunch of loose shit bouncing around

    damn I just read that lol
