>"Note to self:
When under attack from all sides, go "yeah, all on <name>". That actually works!"

Kekeke, I was also surprised that it worked. Don't forget the =( smiley.


>"I'm pretty sure the version I played was the most recent one."

My replay is around a month old, so it could be from an older version. No idea if the map got updated in the meantime without a changelog...


It's been a while since I played the map. What bothered me was the slow mana regeneration rate of the mages as far as I can remember.

Sweet gob, Ace but I have a coupple of sugjestions for your map:
Spell book for the Mage containing these spells-Summon Sceleton Warrior,Summon Sceleton Archer,Sceleton Dice

The first 2 spells are obvious and the third one is a luck gig- you summon one sceleton with random dmg type, random armor, random atack speed, and one random passive

Also Add Sceleton King to the selable units.Make 2-3 upgrades fopr the mages.

JASS:

function Trig_Mages_Actions takes nothing returns nothing
    local unit u = GetTriggerUnit()
    local integer c = GetUnitUserData(u) + 1
    call DoMystery(GetOwningPlayer(u))
    call SetUnitUserData(u, c)
    if GetUnitUserData(u) &gt;= GetRandomInt(42, 50) and GetUnitTypeId(u) == Unit_Mage3() then
        call Trig_Mages_Effect(u)
        call UnitAddAbility(u, Ability_ChaosMage4())
        if GetPlayerTechCount(GetOwningPlayer(u), 'Rusl', true) == 0 then
            call SetPlayerTechResearched(GetOwningPlayer(u), 'Rusl', 1)
            call QuestMessageBJ( udg_PlayerGroup[GetConvertedPlayerId(GetOwningPlayer(u))], bj_QUESTMESSAGE_UNITACQUIRED, &quot;|cff00ccffSkeletal Mastery|r
Your mastery of the Dark Arts has permanently added an extra 10% to the duration of your summoned Skeletons.&quot;)
        endif
    endif
    if GetUnitUserData(u) &gt;= GetRandomInt(22, 26) and GetUnitTypeId(u) == Unit_Mage2() then
        call Trig_Mages_Effect(u)
        call UnitAddAbility(u, Ability_ChaosMage3())
    endif
    if GetUnitUserData(u) &gt;= GetRandomInt(7, 10) and GetUnitTypeId(u) == Unit_Mage1() then
        call Trig_Mages_Effect(u)
        call UnitAddAbility(u, Ability_ChaosMage2())
    endif
    set u = null
endfunction


May I suggest improving this by calculating how much mana was used in casting.
It would be more fair since spells differ very much in mana requirement.

Essence of blight - 4
Raise Dead - 42
Bloodlust - 40

So basically once you get to level 3 you simply have to switch to essence or you will never level up.
I am sure it is "amusing" to find that out in game, but it is not really something that gives strategic depth to game.

Hardcoding mana values won't be a problem since you have only 3 spells on mages...

Essence uses an unspecified amount as it depends on the number of units healed.
Actually, it's so overused that most to all players simply "forget" that they can also summon new skeletons.
If you have a problem with that, I'd suggest to have a look at "DoMystery" and weep :p

Either way though, Mastery of the Dark Arts (or an extra level) is not supposed to happen after precisely 317 mana or 42 summoned units or anything other of perfect precision.
It just happens.
Sooner or later.

Data - Maximum units charget to caster - 5
Therefore it takes max 20 mana which is half manacost of other spells.

>> "DoMystery"
I LoL-ed

It is way sooner with essence.
You can make it require random amount of mana you know...

I have a problem when hosting this map. (using WC3TFT version 1.23 - newest as of may 22nd)

Whenever people join, they get kicked the moment they enter. I can't even join it from my other computer, LAN nor Bnet.

What's wrong ;_;

Sadly Ace no longer check these parts on the internet.
Probably the new patch is the trouble-maker, nothing to be done really.

  • No one is chatting at the moment.
  • Varine Varine:
    No, I'm still looking into them and kind of leaning towards a Rebel T7 at the moment because it's pretty cheap and lenses seem pretty easy to come by. Used ones are only like 3-400 dollars, which is much cheaper than I was planning
  • jonas jonas:
    I can't really recommend you any specific lens or body due to lack of knowledge, but in my experience camera shops are very helpful, especially those that also sell used parts
  • Varine Varine:
    There's only one camera shop in my town and they seem to specialize in film, but I have time before I need it. I'm not in a rush so I'll keep researching them
  • jonas jonas:
    I think since you have such specific needs, you should find a way to give a try for different systems without having to commit to one
  • jonas jonas:
    It would suck to spend 400$ on a system that doesn't have the capability you need
  • jonas jonas:
    and it will probably take a couple of tries to get the settings right
  • Varine Varine:
    It would but I can also just make sure I can return them. The system I have works, it's pretty straightforward and I tested it with a camera I have. All it really is is a little cartridge that holds the transparency film and a white light source behind it that projects the image into the lens
  • Varine Varine:
    I'll have to fuck with the light a bit and try some different lighting methods to get color accuracy, but I have IT8 targets for that
    +1
  • The Helper The Helper:
    get that color accuracy :)
  • Varine Varine:
    They're really helpful for calibrating things because I'm really colorblind, so I'm not great at doing it by eye

  • Varine Varine:
    Well the long, slow slog of winter has officially begun here
  • Varine Varine:
    I have a bunch of community service I have to do, and I have a feeling there will be a lot of snow shoveling involved now
  • The Helper The Helper:
    don't know why people choose to live in that kind of weather :)
  • Varine Varine:
    Well
  • Varine Varine:
    My job is here
  • Varine Varine:
    I was born here man I didn't choose shit
  • Varine Varine:
    And also, I keep moving away and it doesn't get any better. I moved to San Antonio and shit froze there AND we had blackouts
  • tom_mai78101 tom_mai78101:
    I'm back, suffering from severe jet lag.
  • The Helper The Helper:
    Cold is following your ass around Varine - I just dont think I could handle a snowy winter.
  • The Helper The Helper:
    Welcome Back Tom!
  • The Helper The Helper:
    I hear that taking a Melatonin around your normal bedtime can really fix jet lag
  • tom_mai78101 tom_mai78101:
    Yeah, I also heard about that as well. I think I'm good. I'm just lucky it's the weekend so I have some time to readjust.
