System PUI - Perfect Unit Indexing

Ok, got it! :) Thanks for taking your time to explain it to me Cohadar.
There is more than one way to use PUI.
I will write a good tutorial on this when I get the time.

Version 4.1

EDIT: Tutorial
(Standard trick in advanced vJass coding to increase speed of things)

And to decrease readability : /
Also, you don't need vJass nor advanced coding for it. It works with basic Jass aswell ; )

But yes, the 2 fewer context changes would make it a bit faster.

Does that give every single unit an unique custom value ? I am assuming GetUnitIndex(unit) is getting their custom value or something?

Kind of confused. Because if it is I could use this and make my stuff mui

GetUnitIndex( unit ) gives the unit a certain, unique custom value which then can be used as an array index for things you need to attach to the unit. However the custom value of the unit must not be changed again later.
Have you thought of extending the 2047 limit?
Is it possible or it's a limitation given by SetUnitUserData?
No map is going to create over 2048 units that need an index on the map at the same time. The numbers are recycled, so really the limit doesn't mean much.

Any reason why this is not approved yet?
> Any reason why this is not approved yet?
Yes. Where is v4.2? :) I saw it in WC3C but it's not here?
yes.....thats the reason....

but seriously, even I use this now (BLURG!?!?!?), I think it is time...
Any way to make this gui freindly, cause im such a jass newb
or rather, your a GUI newb, as in, GUI users are noobs.... :)

This system already is extremely GUI friendly.
Set SomeUnit = <whatever unit>
Custom Script: set udg_AnInteger = GetUnitIndex(udg_SomeUnit)

However, I do think that you have greater problems in GUI than the ones this system solves.

Still, it makes MUI in GUI a lot easier.
1 more question:
If I use PUI I:
1) Can't use GetUnitUserData
2) Can use GetUnitIndex // or whatever u said
Only cohadar can make perfect things better, such is the nature of universe.
Is there any file or guide that I can read to see what's new in the version 5.0?

I like this system, but I want to know if it's worth replacing the old version with the new one.

Yet it is worth replacing because of new textmacros that make some things easier. You can find examples in demo map of course.
(besides system is 100% backwards compatible)

    News portal has been retired. Main page of site goes to Headline News forum now
  • The Helper The Helper:
    I am working on getting access to the old news portal under a different URL for those that would rather use that for news before we get a different news view.
  • Ghan Ghan:
    Easily done
  • The Helper The Helper: is a link to the old news portal - i will integrate it into the interface somewhere when i figure it out
  • Ghan Ghan:
    Need to try something
  • Ghan Ghan:
    Hopefully this won't cause problems.

  • Ghan Ghan:
    I have converted the Headline News forum to an Article type forum. It will now show the top 20 threads with more detail of each thread.
  • Ghan Ghan:
    See how we like that.
  • The Helper The Helper:
    I do not see a way to go past the 1st page of posts on the forum though
  • The Helper The Helper:
    It is OK though for the main page to open up on the forum in the view it was before. As long as the portal has its own URL so it can be viewed that way I do want to try it as a regular forum view for a while
  • Ghan Ghan:
    Yeah I'm not sure what the deal is with the pagination.
  • Ghan Ghan:
    It SHOULD be there so I think it might just be an artifact of having an older style.
  • Ghan Ghan:
    I switched it to a "Standard" article forum. This will show the thread list like normal, but the threads themselves will have the first post set up above the rest of the "comments"
  • The Helper The Helper:
    I don't really get that article forum but I think it is because I have never really seen it used on a multi post thread
  • Ghan Ghan:
    RpNation makes more use of it right now as an example:

    What do you think Tom?
  • tom_mai78101 tom_mai78101:
    I will have to get used to this.
  • tom_mai78101 tom_mai78101:
    The latest news feed looks good
  • The Helper The Helper:
    I would like to see it again like Ghan had it the first time with pagination though - without the pagination that view will not work but with pagination it just might...
