    And of course you'll get credit :D

    Any feedback is appreciated! I'm trying to make the engine as foolproof as possible before getting far into the game levels.

    It would also be very easy to throttle the tinting by using a custom value on the tinted unit. For example it could tint any given unit at most once every .5 seconds.

    True. I'll implement it and see how it looks.

    You have my support, I love this map even without the disc, although I'll be getting it next week(:

    Anyways, hope to see even more of your awesome content and special features (Maybe some stuff similar to the 'Zombie Transformation' and such in the original), so yeah looking forward to this!

    PS: Just wondering, is it possible to trigger it in a way which causes the unit being shot to like, have a brief 'white glow/tint over the unit' and back to the it's previous colour like how the original Metal Slug has? To easily tell if somebody's being hit or whatsoever, hehe just requesting...

    Thanks.

    And yes it would be possible to script it so units have a tint whenever they take damage.
    It would look something like this.

    Event:
    Any Unit Takes Damage

    Actions:
    Send Actor Message, Set Tint Color Red 25, to actor of Triggering Unit
    Wait 0.3 Game Time Seconds
    Send Actor message, Set Tint 0, to the actor of Triggering Unit

    The only problem is that since units take damage all the time I dunno if it would be too asthetically pleasing to see everyone red all the time XD

    It's probably a huge change that involve rewriting a good part of the netcode... probably it's not on their priority list though.
    They are dumb if they don't understand that's the most crippling problem of the editor right now, half of the maps can't be done :|

    Let's hope in HOTS

    Understandable, the netcode would be far to difficult to rewrite at this point. That would require testing and such but maybe they could do that during HOTS prerelease.

    The first one was Amazing. Wonder about this one. Is it on American server?

    Yea it's on the US server. You can download the map file and play it offline though. I *think* it is localized. If not let me know and I'll localize it.

    Also, once I finish it I'll get it uploaded to the EU server.

    You should make a side scrolling fighting game like the original Mortal Combats/Killer Instant etc. Imagine the pretty stages you could make

    I'll think of some other classic game to emulate. Maybe some type of parody fighting game. We'll see!

    It does look awesome, but you know what...the controls in first metal slug were absolutely horrible. The was no chance to dodge bullets. The controls were so bad I couldnt play it more than 2mins. Hopefully you have done something about this! (Even though there is little you can do with wasd and bnet delay)

    Unfortunately there isn't much I can do about the key delay. That's something that I can't work around. The best I can do is let players choose their own keybinds.

    I've played it online with 4 players and the lag isn't that bad. You get used to it I guess.

    posted a message on [Outdated] SC2Layout Files: How to adjust them

    doh showing hotkeys on buttons is just an option in the game settings. is there any way to force this option to be on whilst playing my map?

    also, is there a way to swap UI layouts dynamically through in-game triggers?

    posted a message on [Outdated] SC2Layout Files: How to adjust them

    I've created my own custom command card bar but I can't figure out how to get the hotkeys to show on the over the button.

    I looked at the GameButton.SC2Layout file (which is the template for command buttons) and found

    <Frame type="Label" name="HotkeyLabel">
    <Anchor side="Top" relative="$parent" pos="Min" offset="8"/>
    <Anchor side="Left" relative="$parent" pos="Min" offset="8"/>
    <Style val="GameButtonCharge"/>
    <RenderPriority val="516"/>
    </Frame>

    edit: took a look at Helral's first screenshot of his custom command bar and he's got the hotkey's showing perfectly. how did you do it? maybe i wrote something that's hiding the hotkeys?

    posted a message on Starcraft Legends

    Thanks dude. Sucks that I can't use starcraft in the name. I guess I'll have to find a new one.

    Yea the RPG camera isn't really ideal. But I think I'm gonna keep it and just make a few tweaks to it. People can pick whatever UI they want anytime so no biggie.

    I like the idea of ghosts turning into spectres. Maybe it could have some kind of quest where you have to choose your path or something.

    An Ultralisk hero might be a little too much though. They're gigantic XD
