    @Renee2islga: Go

    I found that all weapon with splash damage completely destroys performance. More search flags->lower fps. Should i just don't use splash in my map? Also can you say where death model of Demolisher is configured? These corpses kills my map, when all corpses removed fps is 90. When 200 corpses on the map fps 30-40. I need to remove them fast, but they are removing too slow... War3_DeadAnimationMacroUnit (Unnamed) did not help to fix Demolisher death model.

    EDIT: to remove death models fast, open actor events War3_DeadAnimationMacroUnit (Unnamed) and set animation Decay to 5 seconds. Now, Demolisher death models will be removed in 5 seconds.

    EDIT2: Still can't find how to remove fast Rifleman death model.

    posted a message on Increase performance of Warcraft mod

    I am making a Tug of War map based on Warcraft mod. In this map, in late game can be 400-800 units. The problem is that FPS is too low and map is just unplayable. I started to investigate this issue and tested on empty map with warcraft mod. If you use original starcraft 2 units - fps is fine, about 40-60 on Extreme settings. If you use warcraft units fps drops down to 10-20 and more units -> less fps. In my map fps was 1. The problem was in events of models of warcraft units. Check screen http://imgur.com/SHONn8f. I have removed all events from all models and Boom, fps x2, x3 increased, it's still not fine. But it's better than nothing. Some units such as Demolisher can completely destroy your map. So, removing events for this model just must have.

    Another problem of my map - corpses, many corpses. I found that they are removed after 88 seconds. To reduce this value find agent War3_DeadAnimationMacroUnit (Unnamed) and set duration of animation to 5 seconds. It's increased my fps by 10.

    I have attached map where you can test performance with many units. Just remove and reset events for unit and run map. You will see difference. You can also compare it with original Starcraft 2 units.

    Have a good time, KorvinGump.

    @FunkyUserName: Go

    New maps regularly appears on arcade, but yes, top 10 is almost the same as it was 2-3 years ago. Most of new maps getting die very fast because most of mappers are leaving development due to lack of time and motivation.

    "Dynamically change attributes", i mean dynamically change attributes of unit, for example Armored, Biological, Heroic and etc. Currently you can't change it during the game.

    posted a message on Critical Strike with Launch Missile Weapon

    Just tested internal critical strike of weapon. It works only if weapon uses only damage effect. But if weapon has LM effect it does not work. Anyone know how to fix it or should i just use set of effects with chance %? I really don't understand purpose of this critical strike feature if it works only for simple weapons...

    posted a message on Convert Warcraft 3 tooltip to Starcraft 2 tooltip

    Hello. I made a small notepad++ macros, which can convert Warcraft 3 tooltip to Starcraft 2 tooltip. For example you have Warcraft 3 tooltip:

    |cffFFFF80Trains: |cffFFFF00Red Golem|n|cffFFFF80Upgrades: |cffFFFF001|n|n|cffFFAC00Iron Golem:|r|n|cffFFFF80Attack:|r Hero (|cffFFFF00melee|r,|cffFFFF00 100|r dps)|n|cffFFFF80Armor:|r Medium (|cffFFFF0012|r)|n|cffFFFF80Hitpoints: |cffFFFF00525|r|n|cffFFFF80Abilities:|r|n-Spell Resistance (|cffFFFF0030%|r)|n-Pulverize (|cffFFFF005%, 999 dmg|r)|n-Bash (|cffFFFF005%, 100dmg, 10sec|r)
    

    Result:

    <c val="FFFF80">Trains: <c val="FFFF00">Red Golem</n><c val="FFFF80">Upgrades: <c val="FFFF00">1</n></n><c val="FFAC00">Iron Golem:</c></n><c val="FFFF80">Attack:</c> Hero (<c val="FFFF00">melee</c>,<c val="FFFF00"> 100</c> dps)</n><c val="FFFF80">Armor:</c> Medium (<c val="FFFF00">12</c>)</n><c val="FFFF80">Hitpoints: <c val="FFFF00">525</c></n><c val="FFFF80">Abilities:</c></n>-Spell Resistance (<c val="FFFF00">30%</c>)</n>-Pulverize (<c val="FFFF00">5%, 999 dmg</c>)</n>-Bash (<c val="FFFF00">5%, 100dmg, 10sec</c>)
    

    It's not a perfect, but can be usefull in some cases. To install it for notepad++ find macros file shortcuts.xml and replace it by attached. Or if you have your own macroses in notepad you can just copy and add new one:

    • In Windows < 7 (including Win2008/R2) the macros are saved at C:\Documents and Settings\%username%\Application Data\Notepad\shortcuts.xml
    • In Windows 7|8 C:\Users\%username%\AppData\Roaming\Notepad\shortcuts.xml

    When you are done, open notepad++, create new file, copy warcraft 3 tooltip and run macros Convert Warcraft 3 tooltip to Starcraft 2 from macroses menu, press ok when messages pop up.
