    im not quite understanding the issue, but I would suggest using triggering unit instead of casting unit


    1. does the dummy get created?
    2. does the dummy cast cloud?
    3. does the cloud have the correct effect?

    Hm perhaps the cloud ability your unit casts interferes with the dummy cloud ability?
    I would base the hero cloud ability on channel (as always) and only let the dummy unit actually cast the real cloud ability.

    Also. Check the dummy cloud ability's stats. Targets allowed, tech requirements and so on.

    If you are using VXJWTSOPT or another kind of "protection tool", unmark the options until the problem get solved.

    how is it bugged, what is it doing and what is it not doing.
    What is the hero ability based on?
    What targets do you allow in the dummy ability?
    Why are you adding the ability to the dummy thru the trigger instead of the object editor.

    Cloud is super bugged piece of sh... that ruins my map so much, because i need it to woork so badly...
    First: cloud gets bugged if there is any other custom channel ability in your map which has the same orderid "cloudoffog". If you have any, then set their "Order String - Use/Turn On" to anything else.
    Second: it is sensitive to player forces/teams. If first team casts it, then it works fine. If second team casts it, then enemy and friend are mixed. You need to make second ability (copy of it) and in its targets allowed instead of enemy set friend. Then it will be cast not on yourself but on first team units.
    And if you have more than two forces in map, like i do, then you are monumentaly fuked poor basterd :mad::mad::mad::mad::mad: and you cannot use it at all...
