Waits and MUI

If you have many things to deal with, i suggest you use Jass instead of GUI. Wait in Jass no need to be extra modified, juz write out Jass and it will automatically MUI.
 
jass this, jass that.... so sick of jass :p
ild rather do it the hard way.

GUI \m/

wait no custom gui \m/
 
this is the GUI way (an example):

Trigger:
  • trigger1
    • events
    • unit starts the effect of an ability
    • conditions
    • actions
      • if then else
        • if Integer less that 200
        • then
          • set Integer = Integer + 1
        • else
          • set Integer = 0
      • set Real[Integer] = 0.00
      • set Target[Integer] = target unit of ability being cast
      • set TargetPoint[Integer] = position of Target[Integer]
      • unit - set the custom value of Target[Integer] to Integer
      • unit group - add Target[Integer] to XGroup
      • set Target[Integer] = no unit


Trigger:
  • trigger2
    • events
    • every 0.25 seconds of game time
    • conditions
    • number of units in XGroup greater than 0
    • actions
    • unit group - pick every unit in XGroup and do actions
      • loop
        • set Value = custom vaue of picked unit
        • if then else
          • if Real[Value] less than 5.00
        • then
          • set Real[Value] = Real[Value] + 0.25
        • else
          • unit - move picked unit instantly to TargetPoint[Value]
          • unit group - remove picked unit from XGroup
          • call RemoveLocation(udg_TargetPoint[udg_Value])


so this is some sort of X Marks the Spot spell, it will move the target to his original position after 5 seconds
 
Only one trigger can be using custom values, or it will create bugs when using 2 triggers that uses custom values.
 
Can you please explain this a bit further? Only one trigger in your map can use custom values for units at a time? What kind of bugs are you talking about?
 
Like IE a trigger raises the custom value of a unit and then checks if the custom value is equal to 50. Then maybe another trigger lowers the custom value of the unit, causing it to not reach 50 = bug.
 
If that is the only thing that is buggy with it then it works just fine for the purpose mentioned in this thread. If you read the tutorial at that link I provided earlier you never change the custom value of any unit from what it was. You are only using the custom value as a reference and then when you are done with the dummy unit that you attached the custom value to you destroy the unit. I believe that if you read the tutorial all the way through you will understand that there is no bug with it.
 
crap, so for every other MUI spell i need to make another custom value?
or just have all of them +1 so it doesnt bug?

    https://www.thehelper.net/pages/news/ is a link to the old news portal - i will integrate it into the interface somewhere when i figure it out
  • Ghan Ghan:
    Need to try something
  • Ghan Ghan:
    Hopefully this won't cause problems.
  • Ghan Ghan:
    Hmm
  • Ghan Ghan:
    I have converted the Headline News forum to an Article type forum. It will now show the top 20 threads with more detail of each thread.
  • Ghan Ghan:
    See how we like that.
  • The Helper The Helper:
    I do not see a way to go past the 1st page of posts on the forum though
  • The Helper The Helper:
    It is OK though for the main page to open up on the forum in the view it was before. As long as the portal has its own URL so it can be viewed that way I do want to try it as a regular forum view for a while
  • Ghan Ghan:
    Yeah I'm not sure what the deal is with the pagination.
  • Ghan Ghan:
    It SHOULD be there so I think it might just be an artifact of having an older style.
  • Ghan Ghan:
    I switched it to a "Standard" article forum. This will show the thread list like normal, but the threads themselves will have the first post set up above the rest of the "comments"
  • The Helper The Helper:
    I don't really get that article forum but I think it is because I have never really seen it used on a multi post thread
  • Ghan Ghan:
    RpNation makes more use of it right now as an example: https://www.rpnation.com/news/

    I will have to get used to this.
  • tom_mai78101 tom_mai78101:
    The latest news feed looks good
  • The Helper The Helper:
    I would like to see it again like Ghan had it the first time with pagination though - without the pagination that view will not work but with pagination it just might...
