Well just wanna ask if there is a Link on a complete list of abilities in WC3 as a source for a dummy ability.

Of course I already look and I'm not familiar of most of the abilities there, I need a link that gives their description so I can get an idea on my custom abilities, though its all in the Object Editor but it will take some time to know their functions.

Object Editor have description on skills...

A magical hammer that is thrown at an enemy unit, causing damage and stunning the target. |n|n|cffffcc00Level 1|r - <AHtb,DataA1> damage, <AHtb,Dur1> second stun. |n|cffffcc00Level 2|r - <AHtb,DataA2> damage, <AHtb,Dur2> second stun. |n|cffffcc00Level 3|r - <AHtb,DataA3> damage, <AHtb,Dur3> second stun.
Looks like stormbolt stun, WOW!!!

Heals a target friendly non-mechanical wounded unit for <Ahea,DataA1> hit points.
OMG healing HEAL UNIT!!!

Post any sample, i will give you description by editor only data (name, fields, analog skills)

ofc there is some useless skills no one know how they work and what they do, dont post em, they anyway dont have any practical value.

LOL! No offense dude, but your making me laugh too hard.
I knew it someone will laugh if I post it like that, of course I knew that object editor gives spell description.

Well anyway what I really wanted to say is if there is some site or link out there that has a database on hero/unit/item abilities, like a SQL database where you can sort of what type of ability your looking for and look under what categories like aura, passive, morph, heals, gives armor/damage/stats etc... I think it would really help a lot rather than opening each spell in the object editor and reading its tooltip description :) Like me I only played in RoC and just custom maps on TFT, so some abilities that are made in the TFT is not very familiar to me.

It comes with practice... If you've played enough ladder War3 you'd be familiar with what most spells do and what their effects are!

that isnt neccassarily true, for example the "Charge Gold / Lumber" ability is not ever used in the entire game, most players do not even know such an ability exists.
and there are alot of information about abilities which are not revealed by the object editor. for example, nowhere in the entire editor it says that the charge gold / lumber ability cannot has any mana costs nor it does trigger a "Unit begins casting an ability" event.

and the moon glaive ability doesnt do what its tooltip says also, because that ability does absolutely nothing and writing this inside a tooltip wouldnt be such a good idea i guess.

so what the author of this thread was asking for isnt as trivial as some members are trying to make it look like.

Glaives bound to upgrade, its trivial to check upgrade too.

Exchange ability is really hard to use ever for skilled users, cos selling items or units much more effective and provide event callbacks everyone need.

Also some skills have viable alternatives, or semiuniversal skills like acid bomb (projectile, buff).

the point is what you said is that the abilities tooltip tells you everything about what the ability does, in fact, it doesnt. at least not for a few selected abilities.
and thats the problem for beginners, what you need to understand how those abilities work is not reading the tooltips, you need experience, practise, some time the only way to find out certain things is trial and error.

    I dunno if I ever mentioned it here, but my bot actually helped someone discover a new way to clip through walls.
  • tom_mai78101 tom_mai78101:
    However, not many folks heard about it, because it's currently only compatible with the latest dev builds of multi-system emulator, BizHawk.
  • jonas jonas:
    cool! do you have a video?
  • tom_mai78101 tom_mai78101:
    I have a GIF though
  • tom_mai78101 tom_mai78101:
    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.
  • tom_mai78101 tom_mai78101:
    And this is the thread with the video that shows the wall clip. https://tasvideos.org/Forum/Topics/23453

    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.
  • tom_mai78101 tom_mai78101:
    What do we do with the Home page?
  • Ghan Ghan:
    I added those forums to the filter for that widget.
  • tom_mai78101 tom_mai78101:
    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.
