How to make quests accept the sign "}"?

For instance, you have the following quest info (that's stupid to write that but it's only an example) :

Code:
[COLOR="Red"]Median of {4,5,6,7}[/COLOR][COLOR="Blue"] is 5.5?[/COLOR]

And in game you will see :

Code:
[COLOR="Red"]Median of {4,5,6,7[/COLOR]
but I want to see

Code:
[COLOR="Red"]Median of {4,5,6,7}[/COLOR] [COLOR="Blue"]is 5.5?[/COLOR]

How to make quests accept the symbol "}".

note: I need "}" for lists so they are more readable. [] used for matrix, () for logic operations for a fixed amount of terms.

edit : it seems Worldedit eats also all after "}" included in quests when you save the map.



off-topic : How to make the Trigger Editor read all triggers 1 by 1 in the list it is used in the Trigger Editor (example: {Trigger 1, Trigger 2, Trigger 3, Trigger 4, Trigger 5} in this order)?

lets say :
Code:
Trigger 1 : created first in the Trigger Editor
Trigger 2 : created 3rd
Trigger 3 : created 4th
Trigger 4 : created 5th
Trigger 5 : created 2nd
but the result in war3map.j would be :
Code:
Trigger 1
Trigger 5
Trigger 2
Trigger 3
Trigger 4
and I want :
Code:
Trigger 1
Trigger 2
Trigger 3
Trigger 4
Trigger 5
this question is for preloading queue purpose in the loading screen.

Try adding a dummy skilled "Marker" to each dummy unit-type, and picking every unit within a group whose level skill of "Marker" is greater than 0 and then doing actions.

EDIT: I tried and units with locust aren't picked up by the Pick Ever Units thingy, maybe someone else knows? I removed and it worked, maybe you can remove locust and just set model to none.

not possible, they are special effects. I don't want to import 50 times the same model with modified angle / colour.

Locusted units can only be picked by Pick Every Units of TYPE.

IT IS possible, just use strings in each description instead of row value. That way you can have the editor read the certain character.

if you meant locust the ability that can not be edit, not locust swarm,
then i can tell you, there is no way to use pick unit to define a unit with locust. locust can not be select by selection drag nor puting them into a unitgroup.

You really mean 100? Anyways, what do you want to do with it? Fly them up? Move them left? Can't you just loop through the dummy units, each having a unit array value thingy.

wrong. (read before)

well I think I'll use a custom dummy function creation so I can put them in groups each time I create one (I think there is no easier way). in my map I have about 1000 custom objects with about 85 dummy sfx from imported models.

  • The Helper The Helper:
    I think leave it for real old news that cannot be sorted the reason we had it in the first place was a server issue that we do not have anymore. I don't want to get rid of the archive just not put anything in it for now until we figure it out more
