Dave312 is correct in this case. It's not a question of finding a smart way to do it. Upgrade can effect almost everything but when it comes to behaviors they're stupidly limited.

Yes of course there are ways around it in most cases but it's stupid that the upgrades support so much but yet not some of the most vital things.

Talking about upgrades, I wanted to have a lot of upgrades with several levels without creating different buttons for each level. I just want the same button but I want it to show which level it is currently at. Unfortunately, there's no way to reference the current level.

Therefore I made a dummy behavior and then the upgrade affects the duration of the dummy behavior and the button references to the duration. It works pretty good except you have to move the cursor away from the button and back again before it updates. So if you upgrade level 1, it will still look like level 0 until you move the mouse away and back.

Anyway, if there's something that bothers me even more, it's all the trigger bugs I am getting. They're my own fault I'm sure but they appear when I test it with a lot of other people and then I can't reproduce them in single player. It frustrates me a lot.

That is pretty nice indeed : )

God help me. I have a serious match today and I have been playing terrible with protos the last few days. I had a practise session with the clan captain today and I cloudn't win a single game. (it went like 0-10 or something like that) Not to mention that apperantly, I can't micro blink stalkers, since I managed to make some really retarded blinks, like for example blinking the guys on full shield back... God help me. ;D

Selecting single stalkers which are low on health is seriously too hard. Even the pros always select a bunch of them and rarely all are damaged. Sometimes they blink groups with full health and shields just as well. Its too much for a human to do perfect blink stalker micro.

  • Blackveiled Blackveiled:
    Lmao thats somethin right there.
  • tom_mai78101 tom_mai78101:
    How far back were you looking at?
  • tom_mai78101 tom_mai78101:
    But yes, that was me.
  • The Helper The Helper:
    Do you think I am looking back in the forums for this stuff? LOL, no, I find these posts in the Members Online section or the stats - all these old posts I am bumping and moving around are what people are actually looking at on the website
  • tom_mai78101 tom_mai78101:
    Interesting.
  • The Helper The Helper:
    hey Tom your Burrito news is going viral by TheHelper.net standards LOL
  • The Helper The Helper:
    looks like The Burrito has been shared to facebook lol I am getting the facebook bots in now
  • The Helper The Helper:
    I am going to do one more News Forum like the Weird News but this one is Science News for all the cool science and technology articles in the Archive
  • tom_mai78101 tom_mai78101:
    Hmm, do I need to start posting some of the Science and Technology news to this new section in the future?
  • tom_mai78101 tom_mai78101:
    Or do we need to move the news to their respective sections once the threads are old enough, read to be put into the News Archive?
  • The Helper The Helper:
    The 2nd thing
  • The Helper The Helper:
    I have been moving stuff from the current Headline news like a year old and stuff over when I see it in the logs or members online but mostly I have been moving stuff from the Archives
  • The Helper The Helper:
    It is possible to automate it so that instead of moving to Archive if it has the Science, technology or sci tech tag that it gets archived there instead. I am considering a new Weird News Tag
  • tom_mai78101 tom_mai78101:
    Please do. I'll try to tag the news appropriately when I get the chance.
  • The Helper The Helper:
    The new Discourse forum software we are moving to next does alot with the tags and also hashtags
  • The Helper The Helper:
    OK I found the source of your burrito post stuff it is from Reddit and possibly a facebook post too but definitely reddit
