The catalog fields are locked by blizzard, no one knows why, but they are not editable via SetCatalogFieldValue.
Im trying to make a system, when equipping an item grants an ability, either passive, or activated. These abilities will number into the 100's(already fleshed out on paper), and be modified by the stats of the unit that has equipped it, eg; having a 'Stike' ability, whose damage increases with the strngth of the unit that has it equipped.
As far as I know, this can only be accomplish by adding/removing abilities on the fly, and being able to add/remove command card buttons on the fly. Because Im pretty sure I cant fit 100+ abilities onto a unit, nor the 100+ command card buttons. Making a unit for each combination of abilities is not realistic either.
Soo.. Unless they have finally brought the SC2 editor up to the level of WC3... My map is impossible to create.
Hey all, been a while since I checked in here, has the problems in the subject been resolved or worked around yet? Had to put my map on hold ages ago because of them, and have had desires to pick up the editor again, but without one of these walls broken down.. well yeah.
Have some good news for me maybe?
I did some searches on catalog values, but as far as I can tell from these and the official forums, blizzard hasn't unlocked the ability or command card values yet. But Ive been wrong before :)
I would have to agree with the above, a # / # rating system is easily recognizable by everyone and just 'clicks' better in my opinion. And i agree with most of what you said, but not everything, sadly the part I don't agree with, is that the mini games were boring the first time around, not the second. I love the idea though, and I think the author has alot of potential.
I just made a dialog with its background turned off, when i start the timer, i turn on the update trigger which keeps the countdown up to date via labels. then when the timer ends, i turn the update trigger off.
The timer windows are just not configurable enough.
I want a timer, but for aesthetic reasons I dont want it to have a border, or black background just the floating text, has anyone been able to do this with a timer window? or am i stuck hacking together a dialog?
