Periodic damage through Create Persistent effects

Ah, so many questions...

Aaaaaaaaanyway... the troublesome Data Editor rears its ugly, complicated head once more. I've run into some awful bother trying to apply a periodic damage effect to my Phoenix Fire clone - currently, I have a Damage Effect set up to do 3 damage (with no Armor Reduction) which is associated with a Create Persistent effect that should tick 3 times (at 0.000, 1.000, 2.000 +1sec delay). This is applied together with an Apply Behaviour effect and another Damage effect (both of which work, affected units are damaged and acquire the debuff).

Apart from the damage amounts and names, my two Damage Effects are identical and I can't see anything obviously wrong with the Create Persistent effect... any idea what the hell is going on with it?

If I had my quess(which I obviously do) it might be with the second picture. Its easier to just attack a image(sorry don't know how to make it a thumbnail).

I believe it has to do with one of those fields down there, that need to let it know who it is suppose to damage. without those(or one of those, idk which) I don't think it has anyone to damage

Bleh, should've updated the post last night... I managed to fix it yesterday (sorry :p), but I really don't understand what I had changed aside from 'relocating' my Initial Damage effect from being part of the Set effect, to being the Effect - Initial of my Create Persistent effect, and tweaking the Period field (from 0, 1, 2 with a 1sec delay, to a single period of 1)

Thanks for the response though - while I don't understand the vast majority of fields around, I would've assumed that the Validator fields are completely optional, so a blank Impact Unit Validator would result in no conditions being required for the Effect to follow through.

As regards thumbnail images when attaching the files, my guess would be the file format - I don't upload images directly to TH often, but I think all the ones I have uploaded are using the .png format, whereas you're using .bmp... just a hunch though

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