Your "success" so far

How did you test it in Bnet?
There's a trick with replacing an original map file (after you've hosted it) in your cache folder with another mapfile, the game will play any map like that, also possible for multiple players if all of them replace their files.

Hmm, so I managed something too...: ^^

edit: shoot with s and move with arrow keys
Nicely done, but I noticed something which I don't quite understand.
I'm german and started with a german galaxy editor after patch9, and the translation is really horrible at the moment, so I re-downloaded the complete sc2 beta client to get the english editor.
However, after I opened my map that was saved with the german editor in the english editor, every single string was completely messed up, every variable name, every text for buttons, everything.
I get the exact same thing when I open (and play, ofc) your map with the english editor, and since you named one of your trigger folders "Nützliches", I assume you are at least german, but are you using the german editor?

Yeah, the german editor is really disgusting. I can't understand why blizzard even bothered translating the editor ... I mean ... the translation is so weird and horrible, that it would be better to just read the english descriptions instead of trying to understand the german translations.

I for myself watch triggers with "Show raw data" (Ctrl+D) - which replaces almost all translated functions by the internal names. Much easier to read, too.

I'm unable to efficiently do anything in the editor because it screws up my computer fairly quickly. :/
I've had it crash my computer twice now while trying to test maps.

I thought doctors don't mess with the codes. :rolleyes:

Very nice work. Amazing how well the new UI interface buttons/menues work.
Can't wait to use em too.

PS: Don't know if you already tested your map in Bnet ... I did some minutes ago and it seemed that the Delay on Keypress events is rather very small compared to WC3. However, you can still "feel" the difference between solo and multiplayer in terms of reaction speed. But I feel like finally FPS styled games are possible, even in bnet.
:3 I love you *caugh* :D
That was one of my biggest questions.

Have you tested it in a multiplayer game? I don't know yet if it works with more then 1 player >.<

All the strings are localized for your language, if you want to change the language of the editor you should just copy the localization file and change the name to us instead of eu (open your map with an mpq editor v2+ [version 1 mpqs crash the editor as well as the game]).

I tried your system too, singleplayer started via editor works fine, singleplayer via battlenet works fine, however, when I tried it with 2 vehicles at once (with 2 players, ofc) the game crashes ~3s after the vehicles spawn.
But of course I could have messed something up while adding the 2nd player.

Like, actually launching itself there in the sense of leaving the old location, flying towards it's target and landing there? Or rather like a missile that looks like the launching unit?

Does it deal it's actual melee damage while doing so? Sounds like an awesome ranged, single-target baneling-like thing if it does.

God the Editor is confusing.

I just slapped the abilities there tested it and they do there desired effects. Minus projectiles and what not.

Basically i have no idea how to make them work properly.

I've been continuously working on Helper Bound and..... for some reason, my triggers keep bugging :( It seems turning off a trigger that registers unit death and then killing a unit while that trigger is off then turning that trigger back on after killing said unit does not work. It still fires that trigger...

I've found out that going to File > Preferences > Video, allows you to set what video settings it's at. By default, it's your game settings. o.o

Edit: In-game rendering, inside the editor...

Edit Again: And... Wayyy better lighting.

    Are we still on the topic of failing? I failed lots!
  • jonas jonas:
    If you ever want to talk about it we're here. The way I see it, you're still around. That required a few very difficult successes if you ask me:)
  • Varine Varine:
    I posted a thing here a while ago about my failures if it makes you feel better to hear about other people failing. Drugs and whatnot, I had a lot more fun than was healthy. I'm still a failure, but very few of us actually get to be the self made billionaire. Luck is the only thing that will take you as far as already having money a lot of the time, and the easiest way to get catch that is with a very wide net and the willingness to let other things loose.
  • Varine Varine:
    Have fun, do your best, something about Edison's light bulb not working until he stole it.
  • jonas jonas:
    Eh. Don't define success as being a billionaire or even millionaire. Success is about overcoming your personal challenges. And if you can get to a place in life where you can love yourself, that is winning it big time
  • jonas jonas:
    Being a billionaire probably sucks, you can't go out in public like a random person anymore and you always need a bunch of big guys following you around discreetly
  • jonas jonas:
    And you'll never know if anyone you know really likes you or is just seeing you as a big money sack
  • jonas jonas:
    Most of the best fun I've ever head was with a group of friends eating pizza or drinking a good 10$ bottle of wine, when I had maybe 100$ on my account. Or the time when I was so broke, my friends visited me with bags of ingredients and I cooked for us, because I didn't have money to buy ingredients anymore
  • jonas jonas:
    Or walking with my then-fiancee through the night until dawn, just talking
