Unplayable Map, No Slots appear, Game cannot start.

Hello, and I have experience with the editor and am using this as a last attempt and have searched for an answer but found nothing.

The map currently will not show the slots when I attempt to play the game on single player and will not even work online.

Note: My previous version works perfectly, and does not have this problem. I have had hundreds of version before that. The name of the game has not changed length at all, and i even tried to shorten it to a minimum of one character to test it.

My Question is what are some of the causes of this problem?
Ei: Bad imports? Bad triggers, Objects... Ive been tring to isolate the problem and what I did to cause it but no luck.

Would there be any big changes from the previous working versions to your current version? I've experienced having no player slots show up, but only from when I import a war3map.j that has syntax errors. But since you're working with the editor, I suppose you wouldn't have that problem.

Yes there are some big changes, I have isolated the Problem to the trigger section. I have exported the Triggers, and Objects and imported them into separate blank maps, and the Map with the triggers is the one that does not register when I try to play it.

A am trying to delete triggers in hopes that in doing so will isolate the problem to a single trigger or possibly variable.

I didnt slap you, i high 5'd your face.
Generally that means there is a syntax error that was not fixed after there was an update, or that you mis-typed some Custom Script or Jass function

IE:
Trigger:
  • Examples
    • Custom Script: call Removelocation(udg_TempLocation) //error here
    • Custom Script: call RemoveLocation(udg_TempLocation) //no error here

the only difference is the l and L, where the actual function has capitals, and the custom scripts are case sensitive.

no it does not give a syntax error, JNGP would, but the normal editor does not check the syntax of custom script and custom text triggers

It's wc3's way of checking the syntax of the map without allowing old maps to work, just check the syntax at run-time

maybe i had that wrong, that the normal editor would give a syntax error, but the JNGP wouldnt, because it doesnt check the normal scripts

What do you mean normal scripts? I thought JassHelper checks all script to see if they're correct. If you save and allow it to run, it'll probably spit out a syntax error as Removelocation isn't a function.

i mean gui triggers made in JNGP, idk if JNGP checks the gui triggers, it may not, and when you save it with a syntax error of some sort it wont open like that

    In the GIF, I've configured it so the lower the "Main Value" is, the better. I had to compress it pretty far down though.

    Hmm, about the Headline News, I noticed threads are being moved into the subforum (Health News, Environmental News, etc.). When that happens, the TH Forum Home page loses the articles, and instead would show old articles posted 1 or 2 weeks ago.

    What do we do with the Home page?

    Oh nice. They're back. Thanks.
  • tom_mai78101 tom_mai78101:
    Now I think it makes more sense for me to put news in their own subforums, without worry.
  • The Helper The Helper:
    Awesome Ghan thanks! I was purposely not moving the first 15 news articles in Headline news to the different subforums but I guess I don't have to do that now?
  • tom_mai78101 tom_mai78101:
    Question: Is there a way to remove thread redirects? It creates a copy of the moved thread and takes up space, and I am leaning towards wanting to remove them in the Headline News. But if they have an expiration date, I guess I'm fine with it.
  • The Helper The Helper:
    If you move a thread please leave a permanent redirect. You can delete any redirects after 6 months. The redirects are left to help Search Engines find the moved content.
  • tom_mai78101 tom_mai78101:
    What if you move the permanent redirect, not the thread?
  • The Helper The Helper:
    I think that works but I have not messed with it. You can delete redirects though if you have to that will not delete the original thread
  • The Helper The Helper:
    if a redirect ends up in the same forum as the post it goes to though I think the redirect drops or fails or something but they are not bugged out and when you are working on an indirect the original post is safe.
