From what i understand i'm having similar problems as the others. My new ability shows up in the WE list and i can add it to a hero no problems. Before opening the map and after i have added the ability to a hero i open my map with .mpq editor and add all the .slk files that i have edited. when i test the map the hero doesn't have the spell and doesn't have an ability point. It makes sence to me that the .slk files arn't loading or something but i'm new at this (first custom spell) and i have no clue whats going on. any help would be great. pat edit: i just tried a different spell where all i changed was the name of the spell and the alias [Axxx] and got the same results so i am pretty sure its something i am doing wrong in the importing procedure and not a field i have edited and screwed up my spell.
