    posted a message on RTC 2015 - Top 45 Revealed

    Nice politics of Blizzard, 45 maps (as mininum 100 hours per map, top quality can take 500-1000 hours). Suppose about 7k hours spent on 45 maps. About 50 maps eliminated ~ +4500 hours. Totally about 12k hours of programmers. Free maps for arcade SC2. Imagine how much they should pay programmers inside Blizzard. They receive as minimum 5k$ per month(some of them may be 10k, one month 160 work hours.) 12k hours / 160 = 75 months. So cost of all these maps about 375 000$ - 750 000$. Nice work for free. And it's just work for several months. Total cost of all arcade maps for 5 years ~ several millions of $$$.(or even much more)

    I spent myself over 100 hours on WC3 Castle Fight for this contest. And noone played this, it was my fault because other devs published other version of Castle Fight one month before mine(facepalm). Still can't believe that they developed same map(T_T).

    Also remember that all maps and stuff are property of Blizzard Entertainment under the agreement, which was created by them. So even we are original creators of maps we can't even do anything. We are just giving our works for free.

    My maps have been removed 3 times, first for religion (defense of the universe), second for swastika(Grass TD) and third for unknown reason (Probes vs Zealot 2 on EU server), LOL. So you can try your religion map :D.

    posted a message on Patch 3.0 Map-Maker Troubleshooter Thread
    Quote from Rohime: Go

    Pitfall: Cannot Logon - invalid userid / password when trying to publish, and list for Regions for Publish is empty.

    Trigger: Using the Chinese text localistion in game seems to break the sc2-editor region / locale configuration. Additional information is here: http://us.battle.net/sc2/en/forum/topic/19974607490

    Ugly bypass: delete the entire Starcraft II directory (binaries). and re-install [Will try to find a more focused bypass as i test.]

    Solution: Uknown.

    --

    Anybody else using Chinese have any similiar issues? It doesn't seem to happen with RUSSIAN, only Chinese (probably lots of special kludges for Chinese servers).

    Yes, it's because chinese have separate server. I also had the same issue. You could try to edit EditorVariables.txt file and change zhCN language, i don't remember but it can help.

    posted a message on This is Arcade, really?
    Quote from sandround: Go

    The only time b.net 2.0 ever really worked well was when it was 'bugged'. Anyone remembered back near launch, the popularity system was bugged and it was not remembering any popularity at all? So page 1 was constantly filled with new maps. A map gets played and quickly forgotten, so another takes its place. If you launch a brand new unknown map, it gets filled up very fast. I've played more maps during those couple days than pretty much any other period of time.

    Also during launch, blizzard was resetting server every other day - and brand new maps would pop up during a reset. People immediately jumps to play any new maps. So there was a very strong interest in new maps. (at some point, blizzard 'fixed' a blank reset and starts filling it with the same top 10 maps after a reset...)

    In a nutshell, the popularity system killed the Arcade. So a fix is to remove it altogether.

    Instead of a top 10 system, remove any 'popularity sorting' system and just have the top 100 show a list of the last 100 most recently played in the order they appear. Popular maps would still show up in this list very often, but no longer in the same top spot. So a new map in this list would pop up and get attention.

    This is like the open map listing, but instead of disappearing when it starts, it simply shows up in the browse page replacing the devastating popular browsing system.

    posted a message on Patch 3.0 Map-Maker Troubleshooter Thread

    Pitfall: Teleport range for Teleport effect does not work. When i set it to 100 or other values and tries to teleport i receive a message "Can't find placement location". All teleport flags such as Test Cliff, Test Fog, Test Zone are disabled.

    Solution: None. For range less than 363 works placement validation and it prevents from teleport. For range bigger than 363 it ignores placement validation. For my map i uses global blink with range 400, but problem is that unit can blink inside other units, because it's ignoring placement... Blizzard fix it please.

    Quote from OutsiderXE: Go

    Blizzard looking to restore SC1, Diablo 2 and WC3 for modern OS: http://us.blizzard.com/en-us/company/careers/posting.html?id=15000XZ

    I'm not even sure what that means. They already work on modern OS as far as I know. Hopefully we get updated graphics, controls and battle.net support.

    I guess those games have more underlying problems that the end user doesn't really experience but Blizzard wants to clean their code. This could actually lead to higher resolutions, battle.net 2 support, and other things. Although, do people actually want the new battle.net in their old SC?

    WOW, this is how we should search news :D. They don't need to create warcraft 4 and other games. Just make Warcraft 3, Diablo 2 in HD and people will buy it again. I think Warcraft 3 HD will kill SC2, lol. Cause it still have more mapmakers and thousands of maps.

    I also hope they can merge my war3 mod assets in to the offical asset pack.

    It's become huge now...

    Yes, they should replace their official Warcraft 3 mod data by yours. Their mod just have warcraft 3 units without abilities.

    New pitfall: After patch 3.0.3 refund does not work when unit sells items in end of range of sell ability. So, if shop has ability with range 1, units selling items, but refund does not work. It works with range less than 1 but not at end of range.

    Solution: Use triggers to fix it, i have not found data editor solution, seems it's a terrible bug.

    posted a message on Obfuscating script causes compile error at publish time
    Quote from VindicisSC2: Go

    Has anyone else run into this issue? This is the error it gives:

    Script failed to compile: This field is not a member of the struct type (See Trigger Editor for more details) For a line looking like this: DialogSetVisible(gv_1C0E642E.lv_A394EA11, PlayerGroupSingle(lp_70243BE3), true);

    Obviously I want to find out what gv_1C0E642E.lv_A394EA11 is, but when I view my script and compile it from there I get no error. I looked through all my Show Dialog calls and I'm not seeing an issue there either.

    Do not use Obfuscator if you have custom script in your map. I also got an errors with Obfuscator, he just can't Obfuscate custom script.
