Be better than you were yesterday :D
Where's the map? Screenshots? Codes?

EDIT: ahh, as I press F5, the map appeared and also the codes. Still working on the thread :) GL.

Good that you dont use the Thread Interface like Glenphirs :p

EDIT:

Trigger:
  • ((Target unit of ability being cast) belongs to an enemy of (Owner of (Triggering unit))) Equal to True

Does that leak?
 

Komaqtion

You can change this now in User CP.
They do leak, but don't mind about that, since if you'd mind that much of leaks, and efficiency, you wouldn't code in GUI :p

I also REALLY suggest you make each spell MUI (Or at least MPI)...

Now to the code:

Single Attack Arm Mirrage:

Trigger:
  • And - All (Conditions) are true
    • Conditions
      • (Ability being cast) Equal to Arm Mirrage (AM)
      • ((Target unit of ability being cast) belongs to an enemy of (Owner of (Triggering unit))) Equal to True


Remove the "And" here, as it's automatically "And" when you use conditions in the "Conditions" 'area' :D

Trigger:
  • For each (Integer A) from 1 to (0 + (2 x (Level of (Ability being cast) for DrunkenBrawler))), do (Actions)


"( 0 +" ?!?!

Why would you use "0 +" and not justs use "(2 x (Level of (Ability being cast)" alone ? :S
(Do that ;))

And:
Trigger:
  • Unit Group - Remove all units from ArmMirragePotentialTargets


Isn't enough to prevent the leak created...
You need:
JASS:
Custom script: call DestroyGroup(udg_ArmMirragePotentialTargets)

;)

And also, you really shouldn't use waits inside loops !
Learn how to use Hashtables, and then make another trigger with a 0.10 second periodic event, and use hashtables to retrieve the data for each unit and do the actions there instead ;)

Drunken Brawler Attack Attempt

Again, remove the "And" in the conditions ;)

Now, this is a quite major issue, this whole spell will bug VERY much later in game because of this line:
Trigger:
  • Trigger - Add to Drunken Brawler Damage Alter <gen> the event (Unit - DM_AttackedUnit Takes damage)


You can not register the same event for the same unit twice, since then the trigger will run twice if that unit takes damage...
You should store the registered units in a unit-group, and then check if that unit isn't in the group, then you register, else you dont ;)

Drunken Brawler Damage Alter

Code:
Unit - Create 1 Universal Dummy (All) for (Owner of DrunkenBrawler) at [COLOR="Red"](Position of DrunkenBrawler)[/COLOR] facing Default building facing degrees
Leaks...

And same as the first spell (Though this one might be quite a bit more of a challenge :p) you really should at least try to make stuff MUI (Or, yet again, at least MPI ;)), it simply makes it soo much better ! :D
And hashtables is a great thing for it ;)

Breath of Ale AoE Setup

What's this doing as the third line ?! :S
Trigger:
  • Custom script: call RemoveLocation(udg_BoACastPoint)


Isn't needed there...

And what are these doing as the 13th and 14th line ?!?!?!?!?!
Trigger:
  • Custom script: call RemoveLocation(udg_BoACastPoint)
    • Custom script: call RemoveLocation(udg_BoATargetPoint)

(Does this spell even work properly ? :S)

You can't remove those points before using them fully...

Move all of these "leak-removing" custom scripts as the last lines of the trigger (Except the one in the loop ;))

DO NOT REMOVE THE POINT-VARIABLE "BoACastPoint" ANYWHERE IN THIS TRIGGER !

Code:
Set BoACastPoint = ([COLOR="Red"](Position of DrunkenBrawler)[/COLOR] offset by 50.00 towards BoAConeAngle degrees)
Should use the variable called "BoACastPoint" here ;)

Trigger:
  • Set BoAAffectedUnits = (Units within 80.00 of BoAConeAoEPoint[(Integer A)] matching ((((Matching unit) is A structure) Equal to False) and (((((Matching unit) is A ground unit) Equal to True) and (((Matching unit) is Magic Immune) Equal to False)) and ((((Matching unit) is alive) E


Yet again, you need to destroy groups like these ;)

And this line isn't even needed...
Trigger:
  • Unit Group - Remove (Picked unit) from BoAAffectedUnits


It's also better to use this for removing points with (Integer A) in them:
Trigger:
  • Custom script: call RemoveLocation(udg_BoAConeAoEPoint[bj_forLoopAIndex])


Breath of Ale Wave Detect

Trigger:
  • Set BoAAffectedUnits = (Units within 100.00 of BoAConeAoEPoint[(Integer A)] matching ((((Matching unit) is A structure) Equal to False) and (((((Matching unit) is A ground unit) Equal to True) and (((Matching unit) is Magic Immune) Equal to False)) and ((((Matching unit) is alive)


Also needs to be destroyed...

Trigger:
  • Unit Group - Remove (Picked unit) from BoAAffectedUnits


Isn't needed...

Same again:
Trigger:
  • Custom script: call RemoveLocation(udg_BoAConeAoEPoint[bj_forLoopAIndex])

General chit-chat

  • No one is chatting at the moment.
  • Varine Varine:
    They aren't cutting my responsibilities or interjecting in my management abilities or anything, it's just stupid shit that comes up. And they don't exactly have people lining up for my job, there's not that many people applying for the positions I hire
  • Varine Varine:
    Eh, whatever. Thanks for listening guys
  • jonas jonas:
    Sure :) Let us know how it ends
  • Varine Varine:
    All of these things will end happily, they're just stressful. And I still lack many good friends that I can go to, and the ones I can are preoccupied with similar things. Thus general chit chat, cuz for some reason TH and Ghan and Tom all actively keep it up.
  • Varine Varine:
    Just gotta keep Miss Mazie up through the week until her shock wears off and she realizes that she still has family all around her, and bossman will do whatever he's going to do and I'll respond appropriately when it happens. Thank you all for the support, I do very much appreciate everyone being here for me through the years

    Best of luck Varine!
  • vypur85 vypur85:
    I just gotten myself an offer to work in China. The pay quadruples my current one. Damn.... Not really ready to start a new life there in China.
  • The Helper The Helper:
    I have heard that they pay pretty good to English teachers in China - you would be an expat
  • jonas jonas:
    Cool, what kind of job?
  • Accname Accname:
    I would be careful with jobs in China. They can be hit and miss depending on where in China you go. Places like hong kong / Shengzen / Beijing can be neat. Other places not so much.
  • Accname Accname:
    I would recommend searching for some first person experiences for the city you got the offer in. Especially now when the political situation in China is deteriorating.
  • jonas jonas:
    Accname, long time no see
  • jonas jonas:
    What have you been up to
  • tom_mai78101 tom_mai78101:
    Hey Accname, welcome back.
  • Accname Accname:
    Not much. Working in the Renewable Energy Sector as an IT Consultant. Its okay, but I think I preferred working at the university. It was more relaxed and you met all kinds of crazy people there.
  • vypur85 vypur85:
    I gotten a teaching position for Biology in a college in Wuhan (yes, there)... I suppose it should be fine there (I hope). Many of my ex colleagues are teaching in China as well currently (none in Wuhan though)
  • vypur85 vypur85:
    And I signed the contract already. I guess there's no turning back....
  • jonas jonas:
    @Accname how many hours do you work? I heard in some sectors IT consultants rack up insane hours
  • jonas jonas:
    @vypur85 sounds nice, have fun : )
  • Accname Accname:
    I am supposed to work 40 hrs a week, but I can work more if I like and I will be paid for those hours (as long as I don't go too far, there are laws and company policies, etc)
  • Accname Accname:
    In practice its basically work as much as you like, as long as the job gets done in time.
  • jonas jonas:
    Haha, my job is like that as well... that usually means I have a few 70-80 hours weeks a year, and lots of 20 hours weeks...
  • jonas jonas:
    a few weeks ago, one of my friends basically said "jonas, I received an invitation to submit something to conference X but I'm too lazy to do it and also the conference isn't advanced enough for my high level of research*, why don't you write something? Oh by the way, the deadline is in two weeks. Enjoy!" so I got two 80 hour weeks out of that kind offer. (*of course he didn't say those parts, but it's a better story this way)
  • jonas jonas:
    now I'll have next week off to make up for overtime :p and I'll play some good old gothic 2
  • The Helper The Helper:
    Hope you are enjoying that gothic 2~
