SaveReal function seems to fail in trigger, unsure why. Please help


You can change this now in User CP.
The code is below, and runs every time a building is constructed, I included multiple displaytext prompts to try to debug it but cannot tell why it is failing.
Supposed to store the units atk speed as a real, modify it by abp(1 for now), ad set the new atk speed.
function atk2 takes unit u returns nothing
local integer uid=GetUnitTypeId(u)
local integer pn=1+GetPlayerId(GetOwningPlayer(u))
if LoadReal(udg_mhash,1,uid)==0 then
    call SaveReal(udg_mhash,1,uid,BlzGetUnitAttackCooldown(u,0))
   call DisplayTimedTextToPlayer(GetOwningPlayer(u),0,0,5,R2S(BlzGetUnitAttackCooldown(u,0))+" , "+R2S(BlzGetUnitAttackCooldown(u,1)) )
   call DisplayTimedTextToPlayer(GetOwningPlayer(u),0,0,5,R2S(LoadReal(udg_mhash,1,uid)) )
    call BlzSetUnitAttackCooldown(u,LoadReal(udg_mhash,1,uid)/udg_abp[pn],0)
    call DisplayTimedTextToPlayer(GetOwningPlayer(u),0,0,5,R2S(LoadReal(udg_mhash,1,uid))+"  "+R2S(udg_abp[pn]) )
The displayed numbers when tower built are
so BlzGetUnitAttackCooldown correctly returns 1.88 initially and abp returns 1, but all the loadreal attempts give 0 :(
I realized it went wrong because towers fail to atk after this trigger added
The reason I need to store the base atk speed in a real like this is because I later want it to run on Cede tower as well, so the hashtable should store Base cooldown too prevent making it faster by ceding back and forth.

A few things you could try to debug the issue further:
1. check if you can save anything at all in the table
2. check that the table is properly initialized
I created it in this map for this purpose, so have not saved anything else in it yet.
Will look into initializing once get back home.

It worked, thank you!

    it is not that power consumption went up it was available capacity went down with power plants freezing
  • Varine Varine:
    What a fucking disaster. Are all of the Texas people okay? I see TH is, are we the only two?
  • Varine Varine:
    How have the other states held up? I just got power back so I have no idea what's going on, we didn't get warning
  • Varine Varine:
    Why the fuck didn't they fix this ten years ago when it happened?
  • Blackveiled Blackveiled:
    I'm in it with you and TH as well. My power has been in and out, and I have a ruptured pipe that I need to fix, shouldn't be too bad to fix myself.
  • Varine Varine:
    I hope you're staying warm! Apparently the supply is coming up so hopefully we can get back to normal power soon, mine has been on for six hours now.
  • M Mulciberxp:
    My power has been off most of the last 2 days. We had a generator installed 3 years ago though, so we're staying warm. Water is another issue...
  • The Helper The Helper:
    Where I live has a pool so we are using that to get water to flush the toilets. We have enough bottled water to drink and brush teeth and stuff but it has been a few days and no shower though....
  • Varine Varine:
    I had some water in gallon jugs, and got our water back on yesterday. We don't seem to have any leaks, but I haven't crawled down there to look yet.
  • The Helper The Helper:
    still no water I cannot remember when I last showered now I know how they felt in the old west lol
  • Varine Varine:
    My poor plants are happy, they aren
  • Varine Varine:
    aren't used to going this long without water or lights or normal heat. I think a couple of them froze, but they look like they'll make it
  • Varine Varine:
    Well one of them is pretty rough but I think it was sick to begin with, that one always had some problems.

    That is such a Texas thing to say lol

    a positive could come out of this. So many people trapped at home could put a dent in the covid numbers in Texas
  • Varine Varine:
    That dude, Tom Boyd, is really upset about the backlash from his "it's your fault you're freezing" thing because he claims he resigned before saying it, so it wasn't like he said it in his official capacity or anything.
  • jonas jonas:
    Almost as if he was saying "screw you guys, I'm going home"
  • Varine Varine:
    I'm fairly new here still but that seems to be the analogous message by several of our politicians.
