I have Googled. I have read full threads. My map saves and runs fine. I do not see Multiboards. :(

Here is the full trigger that is suppose to give me Multiboards:

I should probably add that I do not understand why I need to do "if GetLocalPlayer()." Why can't I cycle through all the local players? Should I be trying to loop more times for the "chance" that I will land on the local player? What is going on here?

You can not cycle through local players because there is only 1 local player. That is the one in front of the screen of the computer that executes the code. (remember, each human player is running their own copy of Wc3, and each instance has a different local player). Here, each computer generates 24 tables. Then shows 1 of the tables, which is the one that belongs to the local player (different on each computer).

Tables are a bit finnicky to get right.

I would suggest working your way up. Start on a fresh map with a tiny simple table for all players. Get that to display.
Once the tiny table works, get 24 tiny simple tables to work.
Then see if you can get the local player stuff to work.

I did get A table to show to me. Then I realized that it was not THE table.

Is it possible to show more than 1 multiboard at a time? I had a show command in the end of the loop. Based on that, I would assume all 24 multiboards would show up to each player. It only showed the 1.

I am very good at trying and failing. That's how I've learned most of what I know. Haha.
I'm going to try to nest another loop in my for-Integer-A loop to cycle through 24 times for each multiboard. That's the only thing that seems to make a little bit of sense.

You reminded me that this is a program running on up to 24 different machines. Though I already knew that, I needed it to be stated again. Haha

Upon further investigation, GetLocalPlayer() == Player(A) is always false. So again: What is going on here?

It's been a while, but now that you mention it I vaguely remember only one board can be shown at any time.
