    posted a message on Hero Survival J Terrain + Data Now Available


    ^project page has link



    Hey guys im the author of the NA arcade game Hero Survival J and at  long last i have posted the map to mapster (triggers removed) as well as a txt change log  of alot of the chages (NOTE LOG IS NOT COMPLETE). This map contains the terrain for HSJ as well as all custom units, abilies, weapons, etc that i have created over the course of the project, for anyone to look at, learn from, or use in their own projects. (i gave the whole map because i am not skilled enough to post each data asset indevidually). Unfortunately i began the project when i was still reletively new to the editor and it's best practices so some melee units and/or abilities were overridden with my own variations (removed units listed in txt).


    I hope this map can be of use to anyone who would like to use my custom, units and abilities for their own project (i only ask you credit me and model maker if applicable)


    DISCLAIMER: for you experienced mappers, you may cringe at some of the ways i have done things, and i know, i started this before i knew better but this is purely for you guys to view, use, and learn from. i can offer support if you have any questions

    posted a message on Trigger that Removes an Ability

    make a dummy upgade, then give the ability a requirement that makes the player not allowed to have the dummy upgrade unlocked (you cant use the ability if you have that upgrade researched) then make the trigger give that upgrade to the player.

    there is a field on the ability, currently set to target unit (most likely)

    it is there that you can change it to target point

    posted a message on been having editor problems. is it because of my dependency?

    ok so a few things have been happening recently with my editor.

    1. when i try to open a game on hots dependencies i need to relog because i "need a swarm licence to load dependencies".
    2. randomly will say "Unknown attribute id '2000' has been removed from game variant 'Other - Custom'."
    this causes some players to be renamed to "joueur x (instead of player x) and some players to loose their names entirely. this seems to happen at random.
    3. opening the text editor gives this error: "Missing string: EDSTR_TEXTEDITOR_STYLEOPTION_TightGradient"
    4. i was able to import some assets earlier but now whenever i try to import something, it says something like this "Unable to load image from 'C:\Users\Joseph\AppData\Local\Temp\StarCraftIITemp\Import/HerosAndGenerals.SC2Map\Assets\Textures\animations\Abomination\abomination_ChangableTexture1.tga' (Core: a required object could not be found)". this happens for any asset i attempt to import.

    NOTE: if it matters im using a custom dependency i made using a map i had ccreated previously on the hots dependency

    posted a message on Any Tutorials for Custom Hero Panels?

    i havent looked at it at all, but judging by how it looks, id say they might be using a some kind of bossbar (look up tutorials for that, those may get you what ur looking for)

    posted a message on (kinda solved) cannot get addons to work properly with copied buildings

    the flying barracks is a separate unit. make sure it has the capacity to build a techlab and fly. make sure it is not a flying barracks, but rather a flying version of your building

    posted a message on Which skill level player is your map for?

    i think its inheritly hard to get a 1v1-only game off the ground. at the beginning it will almost always be the creator vs some noob. he has no allies to get advicse from or experience to know what he is doing. even if you get to the point where there are some fans that actively play, you will run into the same problem of them crushing noobs and nobody having allies to talk to or learn from.

    posted a message on Hardcore Arcade Games ?

    Hero Survival J! (also shameless plug XP)

    after beating easy, normal, or hard modes, there is still very hard and extreme modes; extreme being to this day undefeated- even by me, the creator.
    (you dont have to beat a difficulty mode to advance to the next. you can play your first game on hard for example)
